  2. Red Sox hitters to buy or sell

    Eric Karabell

    The fourth-most owned Boston Red Sox hitter -- and seventh-most owned Sox player -- is Brock Holt. Think about that for a minute. These are the defending World Series champions, a team that scored by far the most runs in baseball in 2013, and Holt --...

  3. Players to stash away in keeper leagues

    Eric Karabell

    Myriad fantasy baseball owners already have turned their collective attention to that other sport, the one that schedules its meaningless preseason games in August and then gives us four months of intense games mainly on Sundays and Mondays. However,...

    Eric Karabell

    Earlier this week, the popular injury for preseason top-five first basemen Edwin Encarnacion and Joey Votto was the quad. On Thursday fantasy owners got a few more jolts of bad news with thumb ligament injuries to St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier M...

  5. Yankees hitters to buy and sell

    Eric Karabell

    A mere five players hit more than the 34 home runs outfielder Alfonso Soriano blasted last season, and of the 14 players who reached the 30-home run mark, none registered more than the 18 stolen bases he did. So why did Soriano simply stop hitting an...

  6. Adams valuable, even if Taveras returns

    Eric Karabell

    St. Louis Cardinals first baseman Matt Adams played in 52 games before hitting the disabled list in late May with a calf injury, and in that span, he hit a mere three home runs. Adams was getting many singles, beating defensive shifts, but it was har...

  7. Fantasy value of former No. 1 overall picks

    Eric Karabell

    High school pitcher Brady Aiken was the lucky first overall selection in the MLB 2014 Rule 4 draft Thursday night, and if history is our guide, there's a pretty good chance he'll end up in the major leagues someday, but no guarantees of success. Aike...

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy owners had seemed awfully excited lately about a possible promotion for Atlanta Braves second base prospect Tommy La Stella, and thus there was a palpable buzz on Twitter when this actually occurred Wednesday. La Stella, a patient left-handed...

  10. Injured Beltran among active WAR leaders

    Eric Karabell

    More than half of the top 15 for wins above replacement (WAR) among active players entering this season have been New York Yankees at some point. Perhaps this isn't surprising, but with the news Thursday that Carlos Beltran was placed on the disabled...

  11. Should you let CC Sabathia go?

    Eric Karabell

    It's likely that fantasy owners are going to be seeing more of New York Yankees lefty CC Sabathia on their free agent wires after Sunday's superficially terrible outing. After all, Sabathia was hammered for 10 hits and five runs in 3 2/3 innings agai...

  12. Take wait-and-see approach on Ike Davis

    Eric Karabell

    There's hardly a guarantee that the Ike Davis who handled first base for the Pittsburgh Pirates a few days this weekend will hit any differently than the one that struggled so much last season for the New York Mets. The Davis who singled and doubled ...

  13. Will Michael Bourn return to previous form?

    Eric Karabell

    It's easy to forget now, but it wasn't too long ago that speedy outfielder Michael Bourn was regarded as a really valuable fantasy option. In 2012, he was a fourth-round pick in ESPN average live drafts. Last season, he was a sixth-rounder. Today, af...

  14. Adrian Beltre the latest star to hit shelf

    Eric Karabell

    A second member of the top 10 in ESPN average live drafts has hit the disabled list, as Los Angeles Dodgers lefty Clayton Kershaw has company in Texas Rangers third baseman Adrian Beltre. However, while Beltre was placed on the DL Sunday, i...

  15. Don't rush to pick up Dayan Viciedo

    Eric Karabell

    The loss of Chicago White Sox outfielder Avisail Garcia for the rest of the season because of a torn labrum in his left shoulder shouldn't send shockwaves through the fantasy baseball world. After all, Garcia, 22, was owned in barely 10 percent of ES...

    Eric Karabell

  17. Colabello a shrewd daily league pickup

    Eric Karabell

    The story of Minnesota Twins first baseman/outfielder Chris Colabello is actually kind of interesting, one I followed during the past year due to my investment in one of my deep teams. The Massachusetts native played for most of his 20s in the indepe...
