2018 FANTASY BASEBALL TRADE DEALINE NEWS: PADRES CONSIDERED FAVORITES FOR CHRIS ARCHER

The San Diego Padres are considered to have the best offer out there for Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Chris Archer but the Rays are also asking for final prosposals from the other teams that are involved such as the Milwaukee Brewers, Atlanta Braves, and St. Louis Cardinals. 

Analysis:  Archer has been a guy I have been a big fan of in yearly fantasy baseball but this year I put the brakes on that obsession given the lack of a consistent third pitch and elbow worries that cropped up at the end of last season.  The struggles have been stark this season with a 4.38 ERA and a sizable drop in K/9 rate but Archer is also under team control for three more seasons which is a plus.  The Padres have a deep stable of prospects to offer the Rays which means they have to be considered solid favorites right now.
