It’s Monday, you’ve just stumbled into work. There’s no way you’re ready to do actual work, so instead you decide to surf the Web.
Sound familiar? Thought so. Luckily, you and I are having this conversation because if you want to waste a few minutes — an hour if the boss comes in a little later than you — we’ve got some things to read from some great Web sites out there.
Pop the top on your energy drink/coffee and start clicking:
The dudes over at Beyond the Boxscore have been chewing on injury data and spitting it back out into interesting shapes. Sorry, that not a great image over breakfast.
If you were thinking about drafting Cole Hamels as a value, and you should be, this post over at Fake Teams will clinch it for you.
Don’t just look at overall statistics, they can be misleading (Raul Ibanez!), Fantasy Hurler talks about some second-half stud hitters. I’ll be targeting a handful of those guys in 2010.
Fantasy Juice is putting 2009’s underachievers under the Legit or Quit microscope.
Jose Reyes is the No. 1 most risky/rewardy player in 2010. That’s a statement of fact. Imaginary Diamond provides some more words to back it up.
Catcher? You don’t need a catcher. Well, you do need one to fill out your lineup. But as Razzball Baseball points out, a mediocre catcher will do. Bengie Molina is the “key” to the argument. But for me, it’s the comparisons in the final stanza that makes the strategy sing.
Thought to myself the other day, we should do a list of some early ADP values. Rotographs is already on it. We’ll post one eventually, but this one is a great primer.
Fangraphs is predicting that Brett Gardner is this year’s Nyjer Morgan.
Whatever is there to do during the fantasy football offseason? For starters, keep an eye on running back situations — Fanhouse has a list for you.
Jay Cutler+Mike Martz offense=big season for Devin Aromashodu. I’m totally buying what Razzball Football is selling.
Sockonfl’s look back at 2009 fantasy points allowed by position continues with the wide receivers.
We also turned the spotlight to 2010’s designated hitters.
