  1. 2014 potential breakouts: wide receivers

    Eric Karabell

    It's true that last summer Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon was on my list of potential breakout performers, along with the Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown and the Baltimore Ravens' Torrey Smith. (Well, two outta three isn't too bad, tho...

  2. Talking baseball with NL All-Stars

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- What a week it's been for Cincinnati Reds third baseman Todd Frazier! What a season, really. Let's just say few would have guessed that if the Reds were going to have an offensive breakout performer this season, that Frazier, who enter...

  3. Talking baseball with AL All-Stars

    Eric Karabell

    MINNEAPOLIS -- One of my favorite players to watch this season has been Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier, in part because his excellent performance, at least to this level, was unexpected. After all, Dozier was a 20th-round selection in ES...

  4. Early returns from Dodgers-Diamondbacks

    Eric Karabell

    That's two games down, potentially 2,428 to go in this 2014 season! The Los Angeles Dodgers and Arizona Diamondbacks got things started down under in Australia this weekend -- well, mostly the Dodgers did -- and by the way, fantasy owners, these stat...

  5. Stock Watch: Alex Wood up; Davis down

    Eric Karabell

    Spring training baseball games aren't simply for weekdays, so even if you're constantly updated with the latest news, chances are you might have missed something that could affect a pending draft. And hey, perhaps you're drafting today on #MockDraftM...

  6. Four Downs: Is Josh Gordon a top-10 WR?

    Eric Karabell

    There certainly are times when quarterback play is so terrible that it can negatively affect a top-notch wide receiver to the point of statistical irrelevance. Arizona Cardinals stud Larry Fitzgerald's subpar 2012 is a strong example of that. Now tha...

  7. 2013 ranks update: Assessing the Bengals

    Eric Karabell

    We're nearly halfway through the NFL's regular season, and it's well past the time to forget about the round you drafted this running back and what you gave up via trade for that quarterback. In too many cases, slumps have turned into more than that,...

  8. Week 8 ranks: So many risky RB options

    Eric Karabell

    Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson scared me as a second-round pick in August, and now, after he has missed five weeks (so far) because of a hamstring injury -- four full games and the bye week -- I'm no less concerned. The difference is ...

  9. 2013 rankings update: Time to reassess

    Eric Karabell

    We've already seen trading in the NFL this season (Trent Richardson), and other potentially relevant players switching or finding teams (Willis McGahee, Josh Freeman), so it's yet another reason to see how the real-life changes affect our end-of-seas...

  10. Four Downs: What's wrong with San Fran?

    Eric Karabell

    The high-flying offensive team that represented the NFC in the last Super Bowl is now saddled with the first losing streak in the Jim Harbaugh era. Last week the San Francisco 49ers were dominated in the rain in Seattle against the Seahawks, which is...

  11. Bits: Nationals continue to tear it up

    Eric Karabell

    The hottest team in the National League, much to the chagrin of the suddenly vulnerable Cincinnati Reds, is the Washington Nationals. The Nats have won eight of 10 games and 19 of 25, and among the key hitters in the surge to contention have been thi...

  12. Sneaky fantasy pickups entering Week 2

    Eric Karabell

    It's understandable that Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jonathan Dwyer would show up on ESPN's most dropped list. After all, Dwyer didn't even make the team a few weeks ago, a surprise victim of a numbers game, or perhaps due to the hope that start...

  13. Bits: Josmil Pinto continues to rake

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps it's a Minnesota thing. Major league catchers are hitting a disappointing .247 this season, with a .703 OPS, but the Minnesota Twins laugh at that number. Their catchers are hitting .305 with a .867 OPS. Three-time batting champion Joe Mauer,...

  14. Talkin' keepers: Hitters to stash for 2014

    Eric Karabell

    August is a time when a large portion of the fantasy sports-playing world collectively turns its attention to football, leaving behind average or poor fantasy baseball teams in the process. Of course this isn't ideal, and it affects even the contendi...

  15. What to do with Lawrie, Beckham?

    Eric Karabell

    It's certainly possible that Toronto Blue Jays third baseman Brett Lawrie eventually lives up to the grand praise many of us had for him not only a season ago, but in 2013 as well. No matter what happens in the rest of 2013, fantasy owners should kno...

  16. Finding replacements for Asdrubal Cabrera

    Eric Karabell

    Cleveland Indians shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera left Monday's game at Yankee Stadium with a strained right quadriceps, and by the time you read this he might already have been placed on the 15-day disabled list. Cabrera wasn't off to a terrific start at...
