Fantasy Baseball FAABlog – Week 2


Evan Gattis has hit so well recently that he was FAABed for $112 in the 12-team h2h point-per-category mixed Blog Wars league.

In our weekly FAABlog, we make the results of the free agent bidding from our eXpertLeagues public and offer some words of advice as well. Links to results follow this paragraph of analysis. Bids are out of a $1000 budget for the season, and FAAB is processed twice per week, once at 11 am ET Saturday mornings and once at 11 am Monday mornings.

Gattis went for just $5 in TCM. Josh Donaldson (109 BW) the other $100+ bid of the week. The big speculative saves add of the day was Trevor Rosenthal (32 MW). Kelvin Herrera was taken mostly in our Monday FAAB earlier in the week. Barry Zito (13 BW, 3 TCM, 1 MW), Justin Masterson (75 TCM), and Jhoulys Chacin (24 MW) were the starting pitching choices of the week. Conor Gillespie (53 TCAL), Aaron Harang (17 TCAL), Sam LeCure (29 TCNL), and Tony Cingrani (18 TCNL) were the big mono-league bids of the week. Also, news just came down about the Yoenis Cespedes injury, so consider Chris Young in mixed leagues, as he can provide some homers and steals over the next couple of weeks.

Here are links to the actual results:

Use the links above (just change the date in the date box once you get there) to check in right after 11 am ET next Saturday to immediately find out the results of our bidding!
