    Yea, it's the human element fantasy ballers don't have to deal with. You have to remember, these are human beings, with emotions, and strong entrenched relationships with their organization. Especially guys like Braun who've been around the organization for a lot of years. Every aging/banged up player thinks he "still has it" and they can even become more on edge/sensitive when younger players are coming up taking their ABs. Then you have managers who are trying to juggle the constant tug of war between fielding the best possible team, keeping players motivated/hungry, and their personal relationships with all involved. In fantasy we don't know these guys from a hole in the ground. Every guys is one click away from being on waivers/on the bench. There's no human element to consider.

    Fitz is a beast. But he's an old beast approaching a cliff that no one can predict. I have no qualms with taking/ranking Fitz ahead of Gordon. Doug Baldwin on the other hand... I'd rather watch Josh Gordon flame out, than to suffer a season of Doug Baldwin's mediocrity. His career best year only got him to 10th. (2015) The next year he scored less fantasy points, but because he finished higher (aka the field sucked) people wanted to pretend he was trending up with Wilson. (2016) Then in 2017 he takes another step backwards, fails to break 1,000 yards, has his lowest catch rate and reception totals in years, despite Russell Wilson having career highs in fantasy points, pass attempts, and Touchdowns. On top of that, Doug Baldwin is now being drafted HIGHER than he was last year, and you want to call it a discount? People in this thread want to talk about overratted WRs, then stop pointing the finger at Jarvis Landry and take a look at Doug Baldwin. Doug Baldwin finished 14th overall last year. These are his weekly finishes, weeks 1-16: 39th, 37th, 9th, 63rd, 47th, 5th, 26th, 4th, 22nd, 32nd, 81st, 24th, 18th, 105th, 18th. Doug Baldwin is a glorified DeSean Jackson, Mike Wallace, Torrey Smith, Ted Ginn Jr that somehow people have convinced themselves is different. 3 Great weeks that inflate his yearly totals, 8 weeks he destroys your team, and 4 weeks of whatever. *No Offense to D.Jax and Wallace who were actually legit in their prime. 10th WR off the board, and 26th player overall. Absolutely insane. And before someone even tries to make the claim, NO, 2017 was not an outlier, he's game logs for 2016 looked the exact same. In fact, you can find this exact warning label in his 2016 thread, where I explained ad nauseam to people that he didn't deserve to be drafted as the 11th WR off the board, 25th overall. 2018 is no different. He doesn't deserve to be drafted as the 10th WR off the board, 26th overall. He wasn't a value last year, I don't know how he could be considered a value this year. You are drastically overpaying, because one time 4 seasons ago, he had 14 TDs. Age effects everyone differently, but food for thought, Baldwin will be 30 years old at the start of this season. Do not be fooled by position by attrition.

    I mean literally he has been a Top 4 batter LUCK ASIDE this year. Top 4. Only Bettis, Trout, and JD have batted as well or better. https://baseballsavant.mlb.com/expected_statistics?type=batter&year=2018&position=&team=&min=150 This isn't based on a hot streak of BA or SLG. This is based on expected stats based purely on how he has hit the ball and his plate discipline. I mean his walk rate is nearly 20% (!) and thats backed by underlying metrics on his oSwing% and swgStr (less than 8). Rates like walk/K stabilize after 80 or so PA and he is well past that. This isn't a hot streak where someone has been getting hot or lucky, we EXPECT him to be an elite batter. In fact, so far he has underperformed the numbers say.

    Correa is ranked 62nd overall in standard 5x5 formats. That is without an adjustment for position scarcity (guys who hit like a stud OF or 1B are really hard to find at SS for example). 3 of 6 months into the season he's under performing his 'baseline' at the moment .. but there's still a lot of season left. Think 80 more games batting in the middle of one of the best lineups in baseball with a career .285/.360/.485 (wrc+ 135) line. If Correa being a few HR, hits, and RBI off pace 3 months into the season is the biggest problem your fantasy team is dealing with at the moment, then you are likely positioned extremely well in your league/and well on your way to winning the championship.

    These topics are always fun to look back on to see just how wrong you were. Mine were pretty funny in hindsight last year. I'll give it another go for this year... Arizona Cardinals: David Johnson gets hurt and Chase Edmonds finishes top 12 in RB fantasy points (ppr) Atlanta Falcons: Julio Jones breaks his career high in touchdown receptions (10, 2012) Baltimore Ravens: Kenneth Dixon emerges as the best RB on the team and is an every week starter by season's end Buffalo Bills: Kelvin Benjamin has 10-plus TDs, all thrown to him by Josh Allen Carolina Panthers: DJ Moore has more fantasy points than Devin Funchess Chicago Bears: Allen Robinson fails to reach 1,000 yards but finishes with 10-plus TDs Cincinnati Bengals: Tyler Eifert actually stays healthy for a whole season Cleveland Browns: Powered by an explosive offense led by Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry, Hyde/Chubb/Duke, and David Njoku, Tyrod Taylor sets career highs in passing yards, TDs, and passer rating. Baker Mayfield does not see the field Dallas Cowboys: Michael Gallup leads all Cowboys WRs in fantasy points and finishes as a WR2 Denver Broncos: Royce Freeman has over 1,000 yards rushing and at least 8 TDs Detroit Lions: Luke Willson emerges as a TE1 in fantasy Green Bay Packers: Geronimo Allison emerges as the No. 2 behind Adams. Jimmy Graham scores fewer than 8 TDs. Houston Texans: Watson fails to finish the season once again and is labeled the next RG3 Indianapolis Colts: Jack Doyle finishes as a TE1 despite the presence of Eric Enron Jacksonville Jaguars: DJ Chark beats out Moncrief, Westbrook, Lee, and Cole as the best fantasy WR on the Jags Kansas City Chiefs: Patrick Mahomes leads the AFC in rushing yards and TDs by a QB Miami Dolphins: Frank Gore leads the team in rushing yards and touchdowns Minnesota Vikings: Stefon Diggs scores more fantasy points than Adam Thielen New England Patriots: Tom Brady wins league MVP...again. Rex Burkhead finishes in the top 15 for RBs. New Orleans Saints: Cam Meredith and Michael Thomas each go over 1,000 yards receiving with at least 5 TDs apiece New York Giants: Odell Beckham Jr. has his best statistical season yet and finishes as overall WR1 New York Jets: Quincy Enunwa has more fantasy points than Robby Anderson and T. Pryor Oakland Raiders: Jordy Nelson has more fantasy points than Amari Cooper Philadelphia Eagles: Nick Foles is traded at the deadline to a team that suffers an injury at QB Pittsburgh Steelers: Leveon Bell has his best statistical season yet and finishes as overall RB1 San Diego Chargers: Keenan Allen sets career highs in receptions, yards, and TDs San Francisco 49ers: Jerick McKinnon finishes top 10 among RBs in ppr Seattle Seahawks: Brandon Marshall leads Seattle in TD receptions St. Louis Rams: Cooper Kupp has more fantasy points than Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks (ppr) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Ronald Jones wins rookie of the year Tennessee Titans: Dion Lewis gets hurt by Week 7 and Derrick Henry is an RB1 from Week 8 on Washington Redskins: Chris Thompson has more fantasy points than Guice

    Thats an odd example considering JMC is on an entirely new team with an entirely new role and entirely new workload expectations. Ive always considered second round to be an appropriate place to draft him in PPR. The upside and volume can’t be denied.

    I think it depends on your roster, your league and your settings. To give a hypothetical, in a 12 team 1/2 ppr dynasty where you start two flex plays with very long benches and even talent distribution among owners, if I have everything filled EXCEPT two running back spots, I might consider a two for one. I don’t think I’d do Penny and Guice, but it’s certainly reasonable. Basically, the deeper the league the more I’d consider two or more lesser prospects for one exceptional one. In most situations I lean towards value consolidation in trades (ie, keeping or getting the better players). The reason being that you can always have a shot at drafting another good RB every year, but Barry Sanders/Tomlinson/Adrian Peterson only come along once a decade or so. I don’t have anything really revolutionary to offer on this one, other than I wouldn’t trade Saquon unless I was getting an exceptional offer of two other players (ie Fournette and Zeke)

    He gave up the HR, then a walk, then a 2-0 count, they mound visit THEN he throws 3 straight circle changes low corner perfectly located to make bour look stupid and never looked back. I actually really enjoy watching scrappy boxberger proving the haters wrong.

    Found it - Peralta himself on having just one pitch: “It’s how I pitch,” said the 6-foot, 170-pound rookie. “I just have to locate my pitches, throw them in different locations. “My fastball is not like one pitch. It moves a lot. Sometimes, it cuts (away from the hitter). Sometimes, it goes in. Sometimes, up. It’s not the same pitch.”

    A lot of the credit needs to go to the coaching staff as well. They completely turned him into a new hitter, and we've seen them do it with other guys like Chris Taylor and Justin Turner. He's a completely different hitter from his Oakland days.

    And, as shown by 3 1st inning walks this afternoon, nothing has really changed in a month's time. In this day and age, where TB has deployed "the opener" rather successfully, you're not pigeonholed into having a 5 man rotation and doing what everyone else is doing. Send him the hell down, improvise with your staff to fill in the gap of a missing SP, and tell him he's not coming back until his BB/9 is under 3.

    Some alternative takes: Arizona: Sam Bradford plays 16 games. Buffalo: Charles Clay leads in receptions. Cincinnati: Eifert misses the entire season. Cleveland: goes 0-16 despite all of the roster monsters. Denver: Keenum leads the Broncos into the playoffs as the team to beat. GB: Rodgers uses J'Mon Moore, St. Brown, and Valdes-Scantling; DAdams busts. Indianapolis: Luck throws. Miami: Gore ends the season within the top 12 RBs, shows no signs of slowing down. Oakland: Jalen Richard leads the backfield. Pittsburgh: Burfict returns from suspension, plays two games, ends JuJu's season with a crushing injury, and ends his own via further suspension. Seattle: Brandon Marshall takes a job on Thursday Night Football and does not play this season.

    2 for 1 trades mean nothing. It’s about the caliber of players and situations involved. Penny has a terrible line and still has to win the job. Guice has another mid round rb to beat out as well as a talented receiving back in CT. Neither are guaranteed successes at the NFL level. Barkley is the most gifted player by far— going top 6-7 overall IN REDRAFT with no meaningful comp, in an excellent situation. It’s as close to a guarantee as you will get in fantasy. Good players like Guice and Penny come and go, but generational talents like Barkley do not. You don’t trade generational talents- you build around them. After some reflection, I’d keep Barkley over any other 2 rookie backs. It’s an interesting debate- id love to hear from other experienced dynasty players on this. @Bartos @vikingapocalypse @mrblonde1984 @Iron-cock @petekrum @Winky @Rolling Thunder @Packdog @BlakeP42 @JHM_13 @Lord_Varys

    Bolt, my rebuttle is this, I chose to stack myself at wr and take an upside qb pick early, I knew early on I was effed at the rb2 spot, I did a reach on beast mod out of urgency and chose to cuff my rb1 spot, I realize the rb2 spot is a hole, but in a 14 teamed, there will be sacrifice in some position on each team

    83 pitches too so that likely means he'll have little to no limit next time out.

    I’d wager Jordan Matthews is an upgrade from Amendola, though he’s invisible in drafting. Regarding age, he’s been healthier than QBs almost half his age. I agree that Brady’s time is coming, that it has to at some point, but all of those alkaline foods and supermodel bjobs and guru chakra sessions and soft tissue workouts seems to be working very very well.

    Except the Kike/Pederson platoon works exceptionally well while Kike can give days off around the lineup when they want to play him vs. a RHP. Piscotty is on fire, so hard to blame you there, but I'm content to roll out Joc against RHP and think the Dodgers will continue to be content with that as well.

    I can help you two out. The last time Washington had a top 5 receiving group was when it included Art Monk and Ricky Sanders. With or without Reed in 2015 and 2016, the only people besides you who believe that group was top five are Daniel Snyder, Bruce Allen, and their immediate families. Not talking uncles, cousins and grandchildren.
