  5. Week 14 start, sit, flex, repeat

    Eric Karabell

  10. Separating quarterbacks into tiers

    Eric Karabell

    One of the reasons I tend to clump positions together in my rankings is because I use a tiered system to evaluate potential fantasy helpers. In other words, if several players offer similar value, they often become entangled in a tier and it's easier...

  11. 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...

    Eric Karabell

    If you had said a year ago that Matt Kemp and Jacoby Ellsbury would be fantasy's top two players, a pitcher would win MVP and Cy Young honors and Adam Dunn would hit .159 -- I still can't get over that -- I would have used a word to describ...
