Fantasy Baseball 2009

Well, the season is just under one week away which means fantasy baseball season is fast approaching. Drafts have already started and leagues are starting to form. The popularity of fantasy baseball has absolutely exploded over the past couple of years. Everyone seems to be joining in on the fun. I recently saw a news story somewhere about how women were increasingly becoming part of the fantasy sports scene. I absolutely love fantasy baseball. It gives me a chance to prepare for the upcoming season and take a look at what happened last year statistically.

I have to admit that I have done more mock drafts than I can count so far this spring. I love putting together a baseball team and competing with other users on a fantasy baseball website. I primarily use Yahoo! to play fantasy baseball but I have been experimenting with ESPN as well as MLB.com. I find it incredibly entertaining to put together a fantasy team from scratch. So one thing I wanted to talk about was a suggestion on how to draft a team. I am in no way a fantasy baseball expert but I do have my own strategy that has worked for me in the past. First off, I want to start by saying that I believe Jose Reyes is the single most overrated player in fantasy baseball.

Yes he is a 5 category fantasy player but his average, power, and RBI potential are not worth a first round pick in my opinion. I realize that shortstop is a very scarce position but I am not willing to blow a first round pick on a shortstop other than Hanley Ramirez. I would much rather use my first round pick, especially early in the draft, on a power hitter that will hit for a ton of average, home runs, and RBIs. Albert Pujols is the single most consistent hitter in the major leagues and I would much rather take him than most other players. However, my absolute favorite spot in a fantasy draft in a 10 team league is the 6-8 spots and in a 12 team league I like the 8-10 picks. You can still get an incredible player at the top (especially since someone will probably waste a pick on Reyes and I have even seen Chase Utley go in the first round or very early second round) and you then you get an early second round pick right after that.

What I have found myself doing is being able to grab someone like Miguel Cabrera (who might win the AL MVP this year) and then turn around and grab someone like Lance Berkman or Carlos Lee and every once in awhile Mark Teixeira will drop down to the 14th or so pick and I can grab him also. There are plenty of players that can fill in for speed. The most important pick for me in the third round pick this year where I completely and totally zone in on Carlos Beltran. I think that he is underrated and he is ranked around 25th overall in fantasy baseball. The guy is a solid and consistent 5 category player. I sit back and watch people draft pitchers with some first and second round picks.

This is where some conflict comes up when I talk to people during mock drafts. For me, pitchers are so much more volatile than position players. People with the last first round pick and the first second round pick have consistently been picking Johan Santana and Tim Lincecum back to back. Now of course they are going to have the best one two punch of any rotation in the league, but for me health among pitchers is much more of a concern than position players. Plus, a top tier position player is going to play around 160 games when fully healthy and a starting pitcher is only going to make 30-35 starts in a season. I honestly wait until around round six or seven before I start drafting pitchers.

You can put together a very good staff late in drafts if you know what you are doing. I have been getting pitchers like Chad Billingsley, Javier Vazquez (who should be fantastic in the NL), and Yovani Gallardo after the 8th round. That is going to be three ERAs around 3.50, WHIPs around 1.20, wins around 15, and strikeouts around 200. That is a devastating 1-3 on starters. Oh, and I literally laugh hysterically when people blow their fourth or fifth round pick on Papelbon. Why do people slobber all over one category pitchers? Closer is the single most unpredictable and volatile position in fantasy baseball. We saw teams switching closers all the time last year and I was able to not draft a single closer in one of my leagues yet finished 7th out of 12 in saves last year. Granted 7th out of 12 is not that great but considering the number of saves I got off the waiver wire and free agency it just goes to show how quickly and how many closers can lose their jobs.

This year I have been taking Brian Wilson as well as Matt Lindstrom very late. Usually around round 18. My lineup is usually mostly filled out by the time I start drafting pitchers in the 8th or 9th rounds. Like I said before I absolutely love doing fantasy drafts and playing against family and friends or complete strangers. If any of you who read this would be interested in starting a league for fun or just talking about fantasy baseball in general feel free to head on over to the forums page and post your thoughts and/or if you are interested in starting a league and playing against each other and other members of this site. Fantasy baseball is one of those things that I feel like anyone who loves baseball will enjoy. It gives you a chance to analyze statistics of certain players, teams, ballparks, and any number of other factors.

For instance, Matt Holliday was one of the best players in the Major Leagues while he was in Colorado. Now he is in Oakland and it will be interesting to see what will happen to his numbers moving from hitter friendly Coors Field to the pitcher friendly stadium out in Oakland.

Fantasy Football Idp Week 9

Heading into Week 9 of your fantasy football IDP season . . . making the proper pickups at this point can really boost your team for a playoff run. Make sure to take the time to scour the waiver wire if you are in need of a bye week and/or injury fill-in or just need to add depth to your squad. As always, feel free to contact us via twitter @fantasycouch if you have any additional questions.

IDP Waiver Pickups

Brian Cushing, Houston Texans, LB – It’s hard to imagine that after being named the 2009 Defensive Player of the Year that Cushing would only be owned in 26 percent of ESPN leagues this season. But that’s what can happen when you get suspended by the NFL for the team’s first four games after testing positive for a banned substance. Cushing went right back to work in Week 5 and 6 with nine and eight total tackles respectively and started at middle linebacker last week with only five total tackles, replacing DeMeco Ryans who suffered a season-ending Achilles injury. Playing in the middle now will boost Cushing’s value a bit because of tackle opportunities he will have, but it may take a week or two for him to get his bearings, get used to calling plays and playing from a different perspective. Even with that being said, he is an IDP stud no matter where he plays and needs to be picked up in every format because of his high tackle clips and big-play potential although he will blitz less often than he did playing on the outside.

Clint Session, Indianapolis Colts, LB – The Colts’ weak-side linebacker has played well in his last three games with 28 total tackles (23 solo) and a sack which came this past Monday on the Texans’ Matt Schuab who got blasted after Session was untouched blitzing through the A-gap. He is a young and fast linebacker with a promising future and will make a consistent play each week for your fantasy team because of his above-average tackling ability. If you are in need of a No. 2 linebacker, a bye week fill-in or just want to add some depth to your roster, pick up Session who is owned in a little more than 25 percent of ESPN leagues. He would likely be a top-20 player at his position if it wasn’t for the hamstring injury that kept him out of action in Weeks 2 and 3.

Eric Berry, Kansas City Chiefs, S – The rookie out of Tennessee is starting to make the impact that was expected eventually after being the first defensive back taken at No. 5 overall this past April. Berry, who is owned in just over a quarter of ESPN leagues, has managed an interception the past two games and had his best tackling game against the Buffalo last week with 10 total takedowns of the ball carrier (seven solo) and one pass defended. The physical tools are there, it was just a matter of time until he was able to adapt to the quickness and style of the pro game. Look for Berry to continue to get better over the second half of the season in defending both the run and pass, while having an outside chance of becoming a top-10 defensive back at the season’s end.

IDP Sleeper

Matt Shaughnessy, Oakland Raiders, DE – Oakland’s third-round pick from a year ago has been a surprising source of sacks this year with five in eight games. Shaughnessy suffered a minor concussion in Week 7 and passed all the required tests which allowed him to play last week’s shutout win against Seattle when he recorded four total tackles and a sack. With 25 total tackles (20 solo) so far this year, don’t expect him to blow you away with his tackle stats, but anybody who has gotten to the quarterback as frequently as he has is worth a look in deeper leagues. He is available in just about 90 percent of ESPN leagues.

Get To Know Fantasy Football

You may be hearing the buzz about it about it, but what exactly is fantasy football?

Well, fantasy football is basically a fantasy sports game where participating players are called owners. These owners belong to a particular arranged competing league. Each of these leagues earn what is dubbed as fantasy points based on existing data and statistics from the real life game of American football; known as the National Football League. The real life data which the professional athletes of the National Football League rack up is important in determining the winner of a fantasy football game.

The players or owners of the league use real life American footballers and they draft these players. The sources of this are the National Football League and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.

Both the National Football League and the National Collegiate Athletic Association are sources of the fantasy players for the owner of a fantasy football team.

The positions to be filled by the owner of a fantasy football team include a running back, a wide receiver, the quarterback, the kicker, the defense and the tight end; a set up similar to real life National Football League and the National Collegiate Athletic Association teams.

Based on real life stats and dependent on the performance of the players, a fantasy football team can garner fantasy points which would reflect to the other football fantasy owners.

For example, a player in the form of a running back gets the much anticipated touchdown, then that running back will earn, in the world of fantasy football, a determined number of points for the owner of the player.

When the season ends, there will be a win-loss tally or record which will set out the league qualifications or fantasy football rankings and this will turn into a playoff bracket.

Just how huge has fantasy football become? Well, most of the football leagues do put aside the weekend of the month of the regular football season for a fantasy football playoff. This playoff will be determinant of the fantasy football league’s winner or champion for the season.

The amazing popularity of fantasy football is reflected in the fact that in 2009, twenty seven million players of these enjoyable fantasy football league games rack up nine hours in a week to play! Twenty seven million people enjoy the same fantasy football passion as you!

In each competition, people would always want to know the prizes involved. It makes the spectators, as well as the players, want to play and win. The motivation is there especially once they get to know the prizes. Listed below are three most popular fantasy football prizes .

Cash Prizes

The larger prize money at stake, the more determination a player wants to have it. It is inevitable that the players would often argue amongst themselves trying to cover up for their mistakes.

Money has always been a motivating factor for people to play because gives them more reason to play. More so, the money that they get allows them to improve their financial state.

Recognition

Players who win will have the chance to make a name for themselves. Although recognition is not one of the tangible fantasy football prizes, still, individuals who are not able to do good on the real sport can make up in the world of fantasy sports. This makes them build their self-confidence even more. In addition, there is also the chance that other team owners see their potential.

Making Fantasy Football Money

Let’s face it, sports has definitely made the world a better place to live in. Imagine if there were no sports, then what would the people be doing in their spare time? Those who constantly feed off adrenaline and excitement get that craving from the sports that they love. During the recent times, especially the introduction of fantasy sports, people are now actually making a living and earning fantasy football money. In today’s world, people can actually earn using the Internet. They just have to know how to do it.

It is inevitable that people will try to make a business out of this since they know people would be willing to spend when it comes to their favorite teams. The trick here is to offer exclusive items or perhaps some kind of membership to attract clients. You do not need to search that far because your friends can be your first customers. For example, if you can grab hold of a jersey signed by one of the players, you can always put it up for auction.

Since there is a huge fan base for the teams, the members would surely notice this rare item. Putting it up for auction online is the best thing to do. There is also a private betting system that you can announce. This is one way of getting fantasy football money. You have to grab that opportunity and take that chance to make some cash, especially if you have so many members in your team. Once word gets out that you have this kind of item up for grabs, expect more individuals to join you and take part in the auction. The higher the bids means the better chance for you to walk away a few bucks richer.

Membership fees also play a vital role in the virtual arena. People are willing to pay you for them to be a part of your team. It is also best that you give some privileges to the paying members so that they would have that feeling of importance. Non-paying members, on the other hand, may want to pay for their membership so that they can be part of the action going on. Give them reasons to want to be a paying member for you to gain more cash as well.

Another thing that you can do to get your hands on fantasy football money is to sell some advertising space to others. If your leagues rank up, expect good offers to knock on your door. Your website can be like a “virtual market” as people will be paying you for their advertisements. It is a win-win situation for you. People will associate your website to the advertisers and the advertisers at the same time get exposed to your members.

Think about it. This is surely something you do not want to miss out on. You are already at the top of your game and you have nothing to lose. Might as well take that chance of earning money from your fantasy league and have fun doing it.

Fantasy Football Commissioner

Football
by nsdis

Every fantasy football league needs someone to oversee the setup and day to day management of a league throughout the season. The fantasy football commissioner is the one who is assigned these responsibilities.

The fantasy football commissioner is the one who is responsible for the creation of the fantasy league. They decide the scoring system, how many teams will be allowed and who is invited to play. If you don’t see the relevance for a commissioner, just think about a team without a coach or an orchestra without a maestro; can’t be done.

The fantasy commissioner starts out by finding who is going to host the league. There are many online leagues to choose from that offer their hosting services for free. You can also pay for many hosting services that have additional features and benefits, but for the most part, you can get a pretty well rounded league from the free service.

When you find the right host for your league the first thing the commissioner does is set up the scoring system. Most online sites will have a default setting that is pretty standard, but you can adjust the points any way you see fit. It’s important for the fantasy football commissioner to make sure everyone is aware of the scoring system before the draft because as the point system differs it will change the value of a player.

Now the commissioner determines how many people they want to invite to join the league. Unless you like playing against the same people every week, it’s recommended to have a league of at least 10-12 teams. This not only makes for a more exciting season of rivalries, but will challenge your fantasy skills and ultimately make you a better player.

Allow me to elaborate. There are a certain number of players in the league that are considered quality, high scoring players. The more teams in your league the more players needed to fill all the rosters. This will challenge your fantasy football knowledge as you will have to eventually pick players that are either long shots to have a help you gain points each week or are rookies with no prior experience. With the proper amount of preseason research, you will know which lesser known players have the best chance of success that year. If you’re still confused, just grab the ADP list and copy it.

The fantasy football commissioner is the chief of your league; the boss of your sauce. Treat them with respect, not because they deserve it, but because they have the power to lock out your team or kick you out of the league. Good luck.

Fantasy Football Defense

When most people think of fantasy football they think of the top offensive players in the NFL. Guys like Adrian Peterson, Tom Brady and Larry Fitzgerald all top the list of marquis fantasy football players that are almost guaranteed to be your big point scorers in any given week. But when doing your pre-season research, don’t forget about your fantasy football defense and the impact they could have on your season.

When researching a fantasy football defense it is a much easier process than trying to figure out your whole offensive lineup. Typically, fantasy football leagues will allow you to play one team’s defense each week and get points for categories like interceptions, fumble recoveries, safeties, sacks, points allowed and defensive TD’s.

Some leagues mix things up a little by allowing you to choose one or two defensive players that can score individual performance points, but this category is not very common. Most fantasy leagues are set up so the offense is the main source of scoring, for obvious reasons.

With this in mind, it’s still important to do a little homework on what the top NFL defenses have done during the off season. Have there been any trades or is anyone injured. Most of the time, if a defense is good, it will remain a power house for many years down the road.

During the off season, it’s always good to keep an eye on the teams who had a strong offense but weak defense the prior year. These are the teams that will most likely be drafting to build their defense and may get some players to boost their performance and status in the upcoming season.

Another thing to remember is to not downplay the importance of a solid fantasy football defense. Many games during the fantasy season are won by a point or less and a win can often be the result of solid defensive play. It’s true that when you’re waist deep into your draft the last thing on your mind is what defense you will be choosing. But when that time nears, it is important to pick at the right time to get the best defense possible.

Your fantasy football defense may not have the most powerful or glamorous role on your roster, but they are nonetheless important and can help make you a winner. Even if they are the reason you win one or two weeks of the season, it will make up for the research you did to pick a consistently high performing team.

RapidDraft is the hottest fantasy football news topic on the wire right now. For under you can draft and manage a team in an online fantasy football league for the entire season, all for a chance at bragging rights and a chance to win the guaranteed grand prize of 0,000 dollars.

Aside from the huge cash prize, the winner of RapidDraft will earn a spot as one of the “pro’s” in next years league and will forever be immortalized in the fantasy football world.

Fantasy Football Draft Kits

Fantasy football season is almost here and if you’ve been slacking on your pre-season research then your best bet for success is to obtain a fantasy football draft kit. Why do all the work when someone else has already done it for you.

Fantasy football draft kits are one of the best ways to get professional fantasy advice and information. A good draft kit will give you all the tools you need to have a successful fantasy season including player rankings, customized fantasy football cheat sheets, ADP rankings, mock drafts, sleepers, draft strategy articles and complete analysis of everything fantasy football.

One of the most valuable tools of a fantasy draft kit is the player rankings and ADP rankings. When combined, these can be a great way to gauge players for the upcoming season and give you a clear cut vision on which players will be the ones you want on your team and in what order you should draft them. During your draft, as players are chosen, you will eliminate those players from the list and it will automatically notify you of which available players are the next highest ranked.

A mock draft is also a very useful tool that will allow you to see what type of team various experts have chosen. They do these mock drafts as they were the real deal. The only thing to remember is that many of these mock drafts take place well ahead of the actual draft day and can change so check on them frequently and especially right before draft day.

Fantasy football sleepers are an aspect of the draft that often gets left without much thought. The fact is if you choose your sleepers wisely you could end up with a few late round draft picks that gets as many points for you each week as your early round picks.

The success of “sleeper” players is much harder to determine than the high ranked players. It takes a keen fantasy sense to know which of these low ranked players will be the best choices in the late rounds. Choose wisely and it could change your team dramatically for the better.

Fantasy football draft kits are a wise investment for fantasy experts and rookies. This information could be the key to success for your entire fantasy season. Use the kit and your own expertise and research to put together a winning team that will carry you to the championship game.

Fantasy Hockey – NHL Players on the Decline

If you’ve been playing fantasy hockey for a number of years, you inevitably start to get attached to certain players.  You have it stuck in your head that the player is a star and has to be drafted.  If you’re interested in winning, you sometimes have to forget the past and acknowledge when the dog just can’t run like he used to.  The trends indicate that these boys are on the way down, if not out of relevance altogether. You have to know when a star player has maxed out his potential and has started down the slope to retirement or obscurity.

Offense

Jason Blake – Blake surprised many by rebounding back to 63 points last season. That’s barely worth a look, and he’ll be pushing it to get any where near that next season. Look elsewhere for your offensive needs.

Jamie Langenbrunner – Langenbrunner had a brilliant season in 2008 that he will never match again. If you draft Langenbrunner, you’re a silly, silly girl. 

Mike Modano – Modano has absolutely no value as a fantasy option. If you draft Modano, you should be playing fantasy baseball or knitting. 

Teemu Selanne  – Selanne’s glory days are clearly behind him now. He’s no longer able to crack the #1 power play unit in Anaheim, and will be hard-pressed to get back to 30 goals again in his career. 

Mats Sundin – It’s questionable still whether or not Sundin will be playing next season, and where. If he does, he’s still no longer the consistent point producer he once was. Take a chance on him very late in the draft, but don’t think you’re getting a bargain here. 

Defense

Rob Blake – Don’t let his awe-inspiring performance last season sucker you into thinking it’s going to happen again. Blake has had an amazing career, but it’s going to start to wind down in 2009. Bank on Blake falling down to about 30 points this season. 

Ed Jovanovski – Jovanavski has finally managed to put together 2 straight 80 games seasons. Too bad it took him this long. He’s undoubtedly on the downside of his confusing career and is barely worth consideration this season. 

Tomas Kaberle – Kaberle’s numbers have fallen for the past 4 seasons to the point where he’s falling off the map. If Burke can trade him for value this summer, he should take the money and run. Expect him to be in the 30 point range again this season. 

Nicklas Lidstrom – No doubt he’s still one of the best in the business; however, he’s no longer the #1 choice, as he had been for the last decade. Expect a small dip in production this season, down to the 40-50 point range. 

Goalies

Peter Budaj – Budaj peeked in his 2nd season and has slidden steadily over the last 2. He’ll be lucky to be in the NHL next season. If he is, he’ll be starting for Colorado, so he may be worthy of a deep bench spot. 

Jean-Sebastien Giguere – Giggy lost his job in Anaheim and is suddenly wildly overpaid as a backup.  This will make it very difficult for the Ducks to trade him, and thus, makes Giggy’s fantasy value worth next to nothing.  That is, unless Hiller gets hurt.

Dwayne Roloson – Roloson finished the season with an impressive run, earning MVP honors for the Oilers. However, he’s no Spring chicken and the Islanders aren’t threatening to dominate the Eastern Conference any time soon. Not to mention, adding Biron to the mix… All told, it’s time to thank Dwayne for a good run and pass on him at the draft.

Jose Theodore – The Phoenix has risen for the last time. Despite his comeback in 08, and a half-decent showing in Washington last season, it’s just about the end of the line for Theodore. You’re better off drafting Andy Moog in hopes that he comes out of retirement.
