Keeper Implications: Is Dickerson the new Blackmon?

While they may have been in direct competition for a starting job to start the season, the Colorado Rockies have benefited from timely hot streaks. Charlie Blackmon‘s hot streak to start the season had owners scrambling to claim pick him up and now that Corey Dickerson is making the most of his recent playing time surge, he finds himself the top target in the leagues he still available in.

 

With hot streaks like Blackmon and Dickerson, looking at a players underlying skills becomes even more critical as it will help us ID which players can actually produce keeper level stats in the future.

With that in mind, let’s look at the latest transaction trends and see if any of these players are worth taking a chance on, starting with Dickerson.

Looking for more

Thanks to those that have participated in filling out my survey so far. I have read every single response so far and will continue to do so. I appreciate you taking the time to help me create a better site. If anyone is still interested in sharing feedback (positive or negative), the survey can be found at the link below.

It’s only 10 questions and shouldn’t take more than 10-12 minutes to complete so if you can spare a few minutes, I’d really appreciate it.

Thanks,

Keeper Implications: Short term vs. long term

Looking at the most added and dropped players over the last couple of days, the list is dominated by guys that were originally drafted in most leagues only to be dropped once they struggled. Finally performing to expectations, these players are on rosters once again but this illustrates exactly what this series is intended to advise on – which players should you have patience with and which should you just ignore?

 

Here’s a look at five guys teams are rushing to waiver wires for and whether they should be in your long term plans.

Let me have it (your feedback at least)!

I hope everyone’s teams are still in good shape as we head into June. As this season has gone along, I’ve been thinking about the mission of the site and I’ve been wondering how I’ve been doing in meeting what I originally set out to do, which is help and inform people. Since I lack the power to read minds, I’ve written a short survey to get feedback from everyone on how you like what I do and what you want to see that I’m not doing.

It’s only 10 questions, so if you have a few minutes please share your feedback. I’m looking for both positive and negative feedback so don’t be shy. I can only improve if I know both the good and the bad and I truly want to do better at helping you and answering your questions.

Thanks in advance for your willingness to share your thoughts!

Jim
