Waiver Wire – Week 8

Waiver Wire – Week 8

Ji-Man Choi, 1B, TAM (CBS: 10% rostered): Ji-Man Choi was activated from the IL on May 16 and has been on a roll. In the six games since his return, he has hit for a .429 BA with two homers and eight RBI. If it is time to shore up your CI slot, Ji-Man is […]

Waiver Wire – Week 7

William Contreras, C, ATL (CBS: 27% rostered): The Braves turned to William Contreras to replace the injured Travis d’Arnaud and the youngster has not disappointed. In his first 34 at-bats, he’s sporting a .265 BA with three homers, eight RBI, and seven runs scored. It’s time that we started giving him a bit more love […]

Waiver Wire – Week 6

Matt Beaty, 1B, LAD (CBS: 3% rostered): The injuries to Cody Bellinger, Zach McKinstry, and now A.J. Pollock has created an opportunity for Beaty and that monster seven-RBI game last week definitely helps in his chase for at-bats in the Dodgers outfield. The power numbers might be a bit lacking, but Beaty knows his way […]

Waiver Wire – Week 5

William Contreras, C, ATL (CBS: 3% rostered): Travis d’Arnaud injured his thumb last night and this morning they placed him on the 60-day IL. The Braves will turn to top-catching prospect William Contreras to hold down the fort in the interim. Rich Wilson believes that “there is potential on both sides of the plate. He’s a […]

Waiver Wire – Week 4

Waiver Wire – Week 4

Tyler Stephenson, C, CIN (CBS: 12% rostered): An 11-for-30 start from the 24-year-old with a homer, five RBI, and eight runs scored should have our attention, especially in Keeper/Dynasty formats. C. J. Cron, 1B, COL (CBS: 46% rostered): The dreadful start has been replaced by optimism after Cron hit a pair of homers this week. […]

Waiver Wire – Week 3

Waiver Wire – Week 3

Alejandro Kirk, C, TOR (CBS: 24% rostered): Danny Jansen is currently mired in a 2-for-28 funk with no homers and RBI’s. The Jays will only tolerate his inability to hit for so long before Alejandro Kirk starts taking away at-bats. That time is fast approaching. It might have even arrived. Rowdy Tellez, 1B, TOR (CBS: […]

Waiver Wire – Week 2

Waiver Wire – Week 2

Wilson Ramos, C, DET (CBS: 30% rostered): 2020 was far from a banner year for the veteran backstop, but thus far in 2021 Ramos is returning to form and wielding a hot stick with three homers. Mid-teens power with a solid BA is there for the taking. Renato Nunez, 1B, DET (CBS: 3% rostered): Miguel […]

Waiver Wire – Week 1

Omar Narvaez, C, MIL (CBS: 37% rostered): 2020 was a total disaster, but the Brewers exercised patience and Narvaez has rewarded that patience with a strong Spring and a 3-for-8 start to the regular season. He did hit 22 homers in that 2019 breakout campaign. Max Stassi, C, LAA (CBS: 26% rostered): The concerns about […]

Fantasy Ranking of First Base

Fantasy Ranking of First Base

Freddie Freeman (ATL) – It was only 214 at-bats, but a .462 OBP and .640 SLG is bordering on insane. The NL MVP voters, got it right! Cody Bellinger (LAD) –  Twelve homers, 30 RBI, and six thefts isn’t all that bad for an off year. Toss in the outfield eligibility and hopefully a return […]

Waiver Wire – Week 9

Shogo Akiyama, OF, CIN (CBS: 15% rostered): In the past week Akiyama has gone 6-for-16 with a pair of stolen bases. He has also walked four times. It took a while, but the Akiyama we thought we were going to see out-of-the-gate appears to be finally arriving. Sherten Apostel, 3B, TEX (CBS: 3% rostered): In […]
