Fantasy Beat: Tout Wars FAAB Update 4/25

2

Jason Collette

Injuries and ineffectiveness have opened the way for many reserves, meaning the Tout crew is already all over the next big things of fantasy.

There was baseball last week, meaning there were also injuries that need dealing with. Neftali Feliz hits the disabled list with a sore shoulder, meaning fantasy owners everywhere are trying to figure out which reliever Ron Washington will mismanage next. Victor Martinez also hit the DL thanks to his groin. What other moves did the Tout Wars experts make this week? Let us begin by looking into the mixed league.

The waiver wire awaits a number of players if they don't make the big-league roster.

Within a fortnight, pitchers and catchers will report for duty, thus marking the beginning of the spring and starting the countdown until the league-wide roster crunch. As difficult as picking the best 25 players can be, the occasionally arcane roster rules add even more complications to the equation. Options are the most notorious and popular forms of restrictions placed upon the teams. The goal is simple: to limit talent hoarding and to assist players in finding opportunities.

Despite the notoriety, options remain shrouded in mystery. Thomas Gorman’s primer from early 2006 remains an indispensable resource for those seeking deeper understanding. The casual observer should keep three rules of thumb in mind when thinking about options:

The Braves and Pirates make a flurry of moves, but they weren't the only ones wheeling and dealing on July 31.

Fantasy Beat: Weekly Planner #10

6

Craig Brown

A certain rookie makes his debut and has two starts this week.

Interleague returns next week for another round, but the big story will be some dude named Strasburg who will pick up a pair of starts, first at home against the Pirates and then on the road in Cleveland.  You think the Nationals know what they’re doing?  He couldn’t draw a better pair of teams out of the chute.  I hope you decided to take a flier on Strasburg in a late round of your draft a couple of months ago.  The dividends are on their way.  Make sure you start him now, because those inning limits will push him to the sidelines later in the season.

OK, at this point, you know the drill.  The week starts on Monday and the starters are provided by Heater Magazine and are subject to change.  The asterisk next to a starter means they’re owned in fewer than 50% of Yahoo or ESPN leagues.  Hopefully, if you’re interested, they’ll be available.  You can download a handy pdf of all starters and match-ups here.
