You may be familar with a common suicide/ eliminaton pool, but this is REVERSE elimination. So sorry boys, you can’t pick against Cleveland to lose every week.
Rules: You pick 1 team to lose every week, pick the same team twice you lose. Pick a team that wins and you lose. Last man or WOMAN standing wins.
This is the most challenging elimination pool. Anyone can bet against the 5 cellar dwellers every week in an unbalanced league. Then in week 11, 60% of the players are still spending their winnings. After week 5, the 5 worst teams are eliminated in this format. Then you guys need to put on your big boy pants and bet the Jets or Chicago to lose instead of the Packers to win.

Below is a list of pickups that you should look for on your waiver wire. Grab them this week because they may be gone by next…
Chris Archer- Tampa Bay
Pitcher- Has only had one career start so far, but he gave up only 1 run in 6 innings with 7 ks! If you have room on your bench or need another pitcher give him a shot
Will Middlebrooks- Red Sox
3rd- It appears he will be the new everyday replacement at 3rd now that Youk was traded. So if you need a 3rd baseman he could be your new everyday player.
Quintin Berry- Detroit Tigers
Brewers -1.5 (+105) (HOTTIE PICK OF THE DAY)
Rangers -1.5 (+115)
White Sox +145 (HOTTIE DOG OF THE DAY)
For our first fantasy baseball post, here is a recap of some pitchers that we feel have over and under performed so far this season. Keep them or trade them is always the question? And who to look for on your waiver wire…
Winner: Kyle Lohse (a Hottie’s favorite) – If you have been following our picks, you know we love Lohse. He has been pitching great this yr. If you were lucky enough to draft him, you are well aware of his 6-1 record and 2.9 ERA. Prior to his last start his ERA was even below 2. He is a keeper!
Winner: Chris Sale – He was the White Sox first round draft pick in 2010. He played the closer role last season, and has a great record of 8-2 this yr as a starter. Also has a great ERA of only 2.05. If you need a pitcher I would try to get him, before the price gets too high. Expect his winning ways to continue.
Coming soon a new Hottie’s section for fantasy sports! We will post sleeper picks for your fantasy team’s draft, tips on who to start and who to bench each week, and even your chance to play us in fantasy games.
