Yesterday’s part I of the Fantasy Football Creates Fantasy Baseball Opportunity explained how watching the MLB transaction wire reveal under-the-radar opportunities — especially during the “dog days of August” when fantasy players turn their attention to fantasy football drafts. Staying diligent and investigating the transactions of non-contenders is a great place to find fantasy baseball value. However, the focused fantasy owner is able to find value even without a formal “transaction” taking place. An example of this occurred recently.
We are now in the “dog days” of August. The trade deadline has passed and heavy lifting for fantasy baseball is done. The NFL exhibition season is in full swing and it’s time to start thinking fantasy football. ESPN will keep fantasy owners posted on important baseball news (as well as what Johnny Manziel ate for lunch), so put the fantasy baseball team(s) on auto-pilot with confidence, right? Hardly.
