Andrew Gould—hey, that’s me!—writes for the Breaking News Team while also enabling his fantasy sports obsession as a Fantasy Baseball Featured Columnist and contributor to Bleacher Report’s growing DFS coverage. He spends his days perusing FanGraphs, dreaming of a time where the pitcher win becomes a distant memory and Brandon Phillips finally cares about on-base percentage.
Along with Joey Votto’s keen batting eye, he’s fond of fortune cookies, Space Jam, Steph Curry’s jumper and Game of Thrones. He loathes tired sports narratives, CBS sitcoms and Oxford commas. He also is getting weirded out by writing about himself in the third person.
Yeah, I’m actually going to switch to first person now. I’m a NY Giants fan who won’t greedily expect another title after already stealing two. I’m a Mets fan scared by cautious optimism I haven’t felt since 2006, and I’m a Knicks fan finding it harder and harder to root for a team owned by James Dolan.
Last year, my fantasy baseball rankings finished among the most-accurate analysts on FantasyPros. Yet somehow I didn’t win any of my multiple leagues. Seems about right.
yea I was disappointed to not see a draft kings lineup yesterday. how often do you do them?
are you going to do your draft kings NBA lineup for tonight's games?
It's merely a one win system where all categories leads up to one point aka one win. I think Yelich would help my steals totals too if he breakout too.
I'm in a 10 Man League in MLB. Strength/Weakness of my Fantasy Baseball teams in your opinion?

I'm in a 12 team ppr league. I'm wanting to upgrade my QB's. I'm trying to trade for RG3 or C. Kaepernick. I want to offer Randall Cobb for RG3 or Marques Colston for C. Kaepernick. Are those fair offers?
Uh Andrew - how long has it been since you looked at Gary Stevens records?
That seems fair. I ended up denying that trade and got a new offer. Bryce Harper, Howie Kendrick and Will Middlebrooks for Adrian Beltre, Jose Altuve and Fernando Rodney.
I already have Addison Reed and Jason Grilli.
Leaning toward taking that trade.
Hey Andrew, I've got a trade scenario for you. I'd be trading away Andrelton Simmons and Jose Altuve for Carlos Gomez and Howie Kendrick.
I have Jed Lowrie as my starting shortstop and I have good outfield depth already but I'm in need of RBI and have a lot of stolen bases I can trade away.
Interested in what you have to say on the trade.
I think an article stating Miami as SuperBowl Favorites is needed haha
Im in a keeper league. We get to keep 4 players and I got 3 but im still trying to find my 4th. Its between Asdrubal Cabrera, Josh Willingham, Jimmy Rollins, and Billy Butler. Probably not Rollins but the other three. What do you guys think? my three keepers are Chase Utley, Justin Upton, and Miguel Cabrera.
