  1. What to do if you own Josh Hamilton

    Eric Karabell

    Los Angeles Angels manager Mike Scioscia certainly raised eyebrows this past weekend when he said outfielder Josh Hamilton, now in his second season with the club, is not the same player he was previously with the Texas Rangers. Perhaps it's a motiva...

  2. Mike Fiers and the sneaky K club

    Eric Karabell

    By dinnertime Thursday a pair of right-handed starting pitchers already had delivered 14-strikeout performances, which seemed awfully rare to me, and then I found out it had happened four times in 40 years. So yeah, it's rare. One of the fellows who ...

  3. Who's on pace for 20/20 seasons?

    Eric Karabell

    It's not easy as it used to be to finish a baseball season with more than 20 home runs and 20 stolen bases. Nine players achieved the feat last season, 10 the year before and 12 in 2011. Basically, the trend of five-category fantasy options continues...

  4. Fantasy impact of position changes

    Eric Karabell

    Most times that I've talked to a baseball player about the potential effects a position change will have -- or is having -- on them at the plate, they've looked at me like I was an alien from outer space. In other words, although these guys are human...

  5. Results differ as Hamilton, Trout return

    Eric Karabell

    A pair of Los Angeles Angels outfielders returned from injury to the lineup Tuesday in Houston, but only one of them lasted the entire game, and it's not the one who was selected first -- or second, in theory, I suppose -- in nearly every fantasy dra...

  6. Peralta among most unlucky hitters so far

    Eric Karabell

    Perhaps no hitter illustrates how wildly unpredictable Batting Average on Balls in Play (BABIP) can be more than St. Louis Cardinals shortstop Jhonny Peralta. A year ago with the Detroit Tigers, Peralta hit .303 with a .374 BABIP, including a ridicul...

  7. Camp Tour: LA's Calhoun ready to shine

    Eric Karabell

    TEMPE, Ariz. -- Six players received more than 25 at-bats out of the leadoff role for the Los Angeles Angels last season, including J.B. Shuck, Erick Aybar and the splendid Mike Trout. Then there was Kole Calhoun, a lefty-swinging outfielder who hit ...

  8. Week 15 ranks reaction: Redskins still fine

    Eric Karabell

    Some will view the somewhat expected announcement of Washington's starting quarterback change as more indication of how dysfunctional things have become, the start of mass changes. More Sha-hanigans from coach Mike Shanahan, if you will. Franchise qu...

  9. Four Downs: Is Nick Foles the real deal?

    Eric Karabell

    Fantasy football owners appreciate consistent statistical performers, and the Philadelphia Eagles are anything but. Sure, on Sunday Eagles quarterback Nick Foles tied an NFL record with an amazing seven touchdown passes in the 49-20 demolition of the...

  10. Sneaky pickups entering Week 8

    Eric Karabell

    It's tough to remember now, but once upon a time, current New Orleans Saints backup tight end Benjamin Watson was a real-life first-round pick by the New England Patriots. He generally underachieved statistically with Tom Brady up until the great 201...

  11. 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 ...

  12. 2013 ranks update: Plenty of new names

    Eric Karabell

    It was a messy Sunday in the NFL this past weekend, with myriad serious injuries affecting the fantasy football landscape. So as you ponder this week's rest-of-season rankings, you'll see several new names seeing opportunity because of the value of o...

  13. Sneaky fantasy pickups entering Week 4

    Eric Karabell

    I'm guessing few people are thinking about the Carolina Panthers this week, as the Cam Newton-led squad joins the Green Bay Packers on bye, but that's exactly why sneaky owners should be thinking about them. Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams is...

  14. Ranks reaction: Assessing the Bucs offense

    Eric Karabell

    One might consider the news of a Tampa Bay Buccaneers quarterback change from veteran Josh Freeman to rookie Mike Glennon as potentially devastating to the value of top-five running back Doug Martin and top-10 wide receiver Vincent Jackson, but being...

  15. 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...

  16. 2013 ranks update: Many RB, WR changes

    Eric Karabell

    One week down, 16 to go! Hope you enjoyed the first NFL weekend as much as I did, but Tuesdays in this space are a day to look ahead, not only for this coming week, but way down the line. We're back again this year with our Tuesday end-of-season rank...
