Ugh. Yesterday was the most abysmal day I’ve had in almost a month. Not a single lineup cashed for me yesterday. The thing is, everything was pretty promising around 8 or 9 p.m. at both Draft Kings and FanDuel. Things went south fast, as they do from time to time in daily fantasy.

This is the first intro that really stumped me. I had to stop and ask myself, “what defines this position in 2011?” For me, the answer came quickly: “I’m drafting Evan Longoria, David Wright or Ryan Zimmerman.” Those are the big three in my opinion (ADP has A-Rod splitting them up). Frankly, if I don’t […]
It is nearly impossible to not fall in love with an under-the-radar player or two each year while preparing for a new fantasy baseball season. These are guys you feel aren’t getting enough love or attention from experts who bury them in the rankings. You’ve already met a few of the guys I put in […]
