Free agency is stagnating, the trade market is cooling, and, well, a whole lot of nothing is going on in the baseball world. Unless you’re a basketball fan, this is the worst time of the year for fantasy sports, and, at this point, hibernation is probably looking like a more

Major leaguers lacking in either draft or minor league pedigree can be hard to gauge from a fantasy perspective.  When these types of players pop up, they are often widely ignored or disregarded as fluky.  They are also not discussed as often in analytical circles.  Today we will look at

Two weeks ago, I began a series on sleepers, breakout, and post-hype prospects, starting with Post-Hype Catchers and continuing last week with Sleeper Catchers.
