Fantasy Baseball 2012 - Fantasy Points Per At Bat

Below is a list of the top 100 players in fantasy baseball last season.  It is sorted by how many fantasy points they earned each at bat.  This list can be very helpful in reminding fantasy owners just how useful some players were last season before injury, like Ike Davis, or how well a prospect was playing in his limited time, like Brett Lawrie. The list is based on the following scoring system: Singles - 1pt Doubles - 2pts Triples - 3pts Home runs - 2pts RBI - 2pts Runs Scored - 2pts Walks - 1pt Stolen Bases - 1pt The only requirement that had to be met was at least 100 ABs Fantasy Points/AB = Points/AB (rounded to 2 decimal places) Runs Created/Game = (Runs+RBI)/Games (rounded to 2 decimal places) Name Team G AB R H 2B 3B HR RBI BB K SB CS AVG Points Fantasy Points/AB Runs Created/Game José Bautista TOR 149 513 105 155 24 2 43 103 132 111 9 5 0.302 783 1.53 1.40 Curtis Granderson NYY 156 583 136 153 26 10 41 119 85 169 25 10 0.262 860 1.48 1.63 Matt

Who Would You Rather Have? Jimmy Rollins vs Derek Jeter

When it comes to veteran shortstops, Jimmy Rollins and Derek Jeter are the best of the best. However, which one still has enough gas in the tank to last a 162 game season?  Jeter is 4 years Rollins senior but Rollins and the Phillies are minus Ryan Howard for a long time this season.  Players selected directly before/after Jimmy Rollins - Shin-Soo Choo/Shane Victorino Derek Jeter - Adam Wainwright/Mat Latos CONSIDERING WHERE THEY ARE DRAFTED, which player would you rather have on your team?

2012 Fantasy Basketball - Breakout Seasons

2/28 - James Harden update! Last year, PG DJ Augustin, SGs Marcus Thorton and Nick Young, SF Dorell Wright, PFs Kevin Love and Kris Humphries and C Marcin Gortat had break out seasons and earned respect in the Fantasy Basketball world.  This year, we thing the following guys are going to take home the crown for the respective positions. PG Jeff Teague 1/31 - Teague has been on a tear as of late.  Minus one injury plagued night against the Pistons, Teague is scoring 18 points a night over his last 4 games.  We knew with all the isolations the Hawks run, that Teague would have trouble tallying up the assists, but to our pleasant surprise, he is getting over 5 a night.  He is shooting nearly 50% on the season, and 46% beyond the arc!  On top of all of that, Jeff throws in 2 steals a night as well.  If last years playoffs were a sign of things to come, Atlanta will have finally found themselves a PG of the future. Teague dropped 21 points in 3 of the 6 games against the Bulls and

Who Would You Rather Have? Alex Gordon vs Andre Ethier

Fantasy Sports is all about what have you done for me lately.  This is clearly evident in Andre Ethier's recent down season, and Alex Gordon's breakthrough season...which we had all been waiting for.  But is Alex Gordon really 5 rounds and 50 players better than Andre Ethier?

Fantasy Basketball Week 10 (2/26-3/3)

If the Playoffs started today, the brackets would look like this: OKC(1) MIA(1) POR(8) BOS(8) DAL(4) PHI(4) LAL(5) ORL(5) LAC(3) IND(3) MEM(6) ATL(6) SA(2) CHI(2) MEM(7) NY(7) Teams Playing 4 Games Cleveland Cavaliers(13-18) - The Cavs are just 1.5 games out of the playoffs!  Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving has proved himself worthy of the first overall draft choice and is leading this franchise in the right direction.  With 4 games this week, the Cavs face 3 teams ahead of them in the playoff hunt(vsBos, @NY, vsCHI) before heading to DC to take on John Wall and the 7 win Wizards.  Continue playing the usual Cavaliers and expect similar results from all. March 18th return for Anderson Varejao?

Fantasy Basketball Week 9 (2/19-2/25)

The NBA All-Star Game is this weekend in Orlando, which should allow many important fantasy players to recoup and get healthy again. To make sure you do not miss any of the festivities this weekend, follow along at the NBA All-Star Weekend home page. 2/23 - Looks like the Raptors might have found themselves a SF in Wilson Chandler!  If he does in fact sign with the Raptors, he is a MUST ADD.  Now rumours are that Chandler might sit the season and test free agency! 2/21 -   Wilson Chandler will return to the Nuggets in the coming weeks .  Not only will he have to share time with Gallo when he returns, but Danilo's replacement Corey Brewer has earned minutes there as well now putting up 14 points and grabbing 6.5 boards over his last 6 contests.  Chandler will absolutely be added by a majority of owners, but I would let them pick him up while looking for players with a more established role. 2/21 - Joe Johnson is doubtful against the Knicks on Wednesday and will probably sit

Who Would You Rather Have? Brett Lawrie vs Kevin Youkilis

Here we have a classic battle of Old School vs New School. Kevin Youkilis has been doing this in Boston since 2004, batting over .300 three seasons in a row before last years position change. Brett Lawrie was one of the most added players in fantasy baseball last year after he got the call in Toronto. Lawrie has ALL of the tools to become a top 3B in fantasy baseball this season, but is he worth a 5th round pick?

Platoon Possibilites in 2012 - Joe Giglio

Joe Giglio is a sports talk host at WNST in Baltimore, co-host of the Just a Bit Outside podcast on iTUNES, former intramural coordinator at DeSales University, husband, and baseball fanatic willing to argue Jeff Bagwell's Hall of Fame candidacy at a moment's notice. Follow him on Twitter @Giglio_Joe   and check out his blog at joegiglio.blogspot.com . Competition, especially on the baseball diamond, is all about having an edge over the opponent. In baseball, that edge can be mental, physical, or sometimes, observational. For years -- just ask older Oriole fans about Earl Weaver's lefty-righty philosophies -- platoons have been a major part of daily lineup construction.   Here is a quick list of platoon ideas that would benefit players, teams, and the fantasy baseball manager in 2012.

Fantasy Basketball Week 8 (2/12 - 2/18)

Linsanity  @jlin7 @linterest Welcome to the Linternet   #LINspiration #LINning BALLISLIN 2/17 - Varejao to miss 4-6 weeks 2/13 - Brandon Bass will miss anywhere from 10-14 days with inflammation in the right knee.   Chris Wilcox should see a boost in minutes but he has never proven himself in the NBA, so try to avoid him.  Ersan Ilyasova(33% owned in Yahoo), and Trevor Booker(39%) are the most added PF eligible players in Yahoo leagues.  But look for Drew Gooden(70%) first.  He was one point shy on Friday night from having 5 straight 20 point games. 2/12 - Anderson Varejao fractues wrist, no timetable yet.   Keep your eyes open and expect 1-2 weeks, hopefully nothing more.  In the past 2 weeks, Nikola Pekovic has been a top 10 center and just 46% owned in Yahoo leagues, he should be your first option.  If you are not excited by Pekovic or he is not available in your league, let us know who you are considering picking up. Pickup of the Week: Jamal Crawford (73% owned Yahoo) -

A Chance to go to the ESPY's

Brought to you by one of our partners: proFANitysports ProfanitySports.com is launching a new promotion next week where the Grand Prize Winner is going to the ESPY’s which are being held in Los Angeles this July. It’s the follow up to their Super Bowl in Las Vegas promotion and if it’s anything like that contest it should be first rate.

A lot of you play commissioner league games now and the concept is pretty much the same with the biggest difference being that you draft a new team each day. Think about that for a second.

You aren’t stuck with under performers or injuries or commitments. You draft your team each day according to salary, p

Rookie Moves - Jake Magnusson

Jimmer Fredette didn’t invite Marshon Brooks to his Rookie Exhibition Invitational and I don’t blame him. Brooks would’ve schooled the Jimmer back in September in front of his hometown. Marshon Brooks game is so nice he is earning respect from Deron Williams these days. The New Jersey native is quickly becoming trade bait for D12 with his high efficiency rating and 7’1” wingspan at the defensive end. Sidelined with a quietly held injury I am anxious to see what this kid can really do as this year’s rookie class continues to impress. Bienvenido a la NBA Ricard Rubio! The future is bright in Minnesota. The rook has an international style that’s electrifying spectators with ridiculous passing and ability to getting to the rim. Rubio’s new energy is providing a nice spark for the T-Wolves and Rubio makes them a tough opponent every night. For the First time in my life I am sitting down to a T-Wolves game on more than one occasion. The Spanish fly is leading the league in steals and is 5 th

Get To Know Him - Jeremy Lin

Offensively, Lin is an exceptionally efficient player, shooting 60% from inside the arc and 37% from outside it, while getting to the free throw line at a terrific rate—almost 10 times per-40 minutes pace adjusted. He is not what you would call a stellar ball-handler, but is excellent on the pick and roll and is very aggressive looking to get to the basket. That is a direct quote from Jeremy Lin's DraftExpress page on a post made in 2009!  They were spot on scouting Jeremy and it amazes me how no NBA team really gave him a chance, including the Knicks.  Had it not been for the Knicks lack of a PG and team struggles over the past 30 days, Jeremy Lin might still be wearing his warmups for 48 minutes a night.  But things happen for a reason, and Jeremy Lin has earned everything he is getting...the minutes, the love from the fans and his teammates, and the national spotlight.  Jeremy Lin has been added in nearly 8000 Yahoo leagues and rightfully so.  He is going to see 30+ minu

Fantasy Basketball Week 7 (2/5 - 2/11)

2/8 - Amare Stoudemire will not return to the Knicks until Monday, following the death of his older brother.   There are no options on the Knicks roster worth filling in for Stat.  Chris Kaman, Trevor Booker, Channing Frye and Ersan Ilyasova are the popular PF additions on Yahoo. 2/7 - You can add Carmelo Anthony to the list of injured players missing multiple games!  Melo strained his groin sprinting up the court in last nights win over the Jazz(he did manage to complete an alley-oop to Tyson Chandler with his limp).  He is expected to miss 1-2 weeks.   Bill Walker should be the guy picking up most of Melo's minutes, but I think there are better options out there.  Shawn Marion (76% owned Yahoo) and Thaddeus Young(74%) are your top options most likely still available in your league.  How do they compare? (Both played 25 games) PlayerName Win Count Stats Won Young, Thaddeus 6 PTS, FGM, FG%, FTM, STL, TOS Marion, Shawn 11 EFF, MIN, 3PM, 3P%, FT%, OREB, DREB, REB, BLK, AS

Best Bang For Your Buck - Jack Magnusson

When it comes down to brass tacks, your ability to win your Fantasy matchups is based on the impact of your guard play. Plain and simple… it’s about the numbers. In the majority of leagues categorically the point systems favor the guards and their ability to have a well-rounded game. This is a real problem for those of you who are losing matchups narrowly. Being in a good fantasy owner has always involved commitment and the slew of slight injuries has been keeping you busy as of late. Since you are used to getting injury updates on your I-phone, make it easy on yourself and give special attention to replacement guards. They key is finding guys that can give you a little bit more every night, because point or %  tally is what wins championships. Total tallies win matchups and since we are in the grind of the 2012 season it’s the close wins now that will put you in the playoffs down the road. This isn’t an easy task and evaluating talented well-rounded replacement guards for your sta

Understanding This Fantasy Hoops Season - Johan Lang

It was just another crazy night in the Association, and I’ve decided that managing a winning fantasy hoops team might be the most difficult thing to do in fantasy sports. It’s an everyday job, and there are lineup tweaks and injuries every single night. This week’s victims include Andray Blatche, MarShon Brooks, Jameer Nelson, and Nicolas Batum.The lock out shortened season has wrecked havoc on NBA teams and fantasy teams alike. Regardless of if you were burned on a long term injury (ZBO, Lopez, Manu, Horford, Gordon) or a short term (Bargnani, Lawson, Rondo, Wade, Paul) one, everyone’s feeling it. It’s frustrating, but know that you are not alone. Yes, in the NBA and some fantasy teams have survived the carnage of fitting 66 games in 3 and a half months with no training camp, but for the majority of us we have felt the sting of way too many DNP-INJs. You can get mad, curse computer screen, and maybe even punt the cat, but remember it’s the same for everyone. Every NBA team must deal

Stat Grabber - Andrew Ericksen

Steph Curry comes back strong, Bargnani comes back firing but quickly hits the sidelines again, and Andrew Bogut lost for the season.  There are plenty of ways to make up for injury losses and player struggles so we've got some of the things you'll need to know going forward. Who's got the hot hand and who's struggling to find to the rim.  It's all about applying a little math to your routine, but I'll say no more and let the numbers speak for themselves Stats We Like 22.3 After a sluggish start to the season, and a bizarrely open approach to the trading block by President Danny Ainge, the Celtics are back on track, thanks largely in part to Paul Pierce.  Averaging 22.3 over his last 4, Pierce has been hitting threes, dishing out assists, and racking up the boards just like he always has. 35 Minutes played in the first start of the season for Mavericks 23-year-old Guadeloupean G Rodrigue Beaubois's, and boy did he deliver!  22 points on 9 for 15 shoot
