MLB: Jeff Zimmerman's Fantasy Grab Bag

MLB: Jeff Zimmerman's Fantasy Grab Bag

Regret After the Euphoria

The section focuses on suspect adds from the past weekend in the NFBC RotoWire Online Championship. These are 12-team roto leagues with a 23-man roster and 7 bench spots. 

My focus is to look to see if anyone was over-bid on (not likely at this point in the season) or had no way to live up to Sunday night expectations.
