12/19/23 Nelson Velazquez, 2024 Fantasy Sleeper. There's going to be guys who are sleepers for friends and family leagues and there will be sleepers for deep leagues, and there might be sleepers for both. Imagine Nelson Velazquez won't fall into the Both category. He feels to me like a guy who will get a lot of helium in those "We're Smart" leagues. They're not actually "Smart" leagues, but if you play in a deep league, you think you're smart. I've said many times that I think shallow leagues are just as hard. Or just a shard if glass is reading. In shallow leagues, it's a nonstop debate if a guy is producing enough, even if they're supposed to be great down the road. In "smart" leagues, you usually can't do anything after your draft that makes much of a difference. That doesn't make things smarter. With that said, I think Nelson Velazquez will be appreciated readily in "smart" leagues but shouldn't only be in "smart" leagues. This guy is a dumb league guy too! Wait until you hear what he did last year (at the age of 24!), you're gonna blow your freakin' lid, smarties and dummies alike! In Triple-A and the majors combined, he hit 33 homers, stole seven bags and, holy schnike balls, I see why those smarties are in on this guy. Let's see if we can convince the dummies! So, what can we expect from Nelson Velazquez for 2024 fantasy baseball and what makes him a sleeper?

9/24/23 Scorching Royals complete 3-game sweep of Astros. Nelson Velazquez produced his second career multi-homer game and the Kansas City Royals capped a stunning three-game road series sweep of the reeling Houston Astros with a 6-5 victory on Sunday. The Royals (54-102) notched their sixth consecutive win and 10th in 11 games, with five of those victories coming against the stumbling Astros (85-71), who have dropped nine of 12 games since taking a 21/2-game lead in the American League West with a win over the San Diego Padres on Sept. 10. Houston lost 17 of its last 23 home games and finished the season 39-42 at Minute Maid Park.
