    yeah i hate it when my guys go 8/9 because they are bound to have a worse game next time! Frustrating.

    Correct he's a major league caliber hitter right now and he's facing poor talent. I don't think anyone is suggesting hes a 643 hitter. As a Dynasty owner, he's doing what you'd hope a great bat would do in the AFL. I think it's pretty cool he's first in all those categories. The numbers are surely inflated, it's still great to have the best inflated numbers.

    Happy for him. Being in a weekly league, super frustrating start to the season to take an empty spot for the whole week. Only wish rotoworld or someone would have reported this sooner.

    I cannot handle any more chubb puns or team names. Just saying. I am excited to start him though. Really needed a running back.
  5. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    17 shots, 34 minutes, 8 assists. Inspiring performance.

    " For whatever it's worth, LeVert's nickname in college was “Baby Durant."
  7. Caris LeVert 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Seems like the no question best player on the team after two games

    @miasma16 was right about the free throws!
  9. Nick Chubb 2018 Outlook

    Glad you made up for what could have been the biggest regret. Many weren't as lucky I'd imagine.

    I need a screenshot with date. Big if true

    It doesnt seem like the person you quoted did that.
  12. Cedi Osman 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    Was in the midst of posting this. I'd certainlty project somewhere in the 70s to be safe. I don't think him shooting 80% would shock me much. I'd be more shocked to see him shoot sub 60%. How many decent 3 point shooters shoot under 65% from FT? Just Rondo if you want to call him a good 3 point shooter because he's had ok %s some years?

    No disrespect to Lonzo Ball's career or talent, but with a healthy Rondo and Lebron, really hard to see his usage this year being great. Osman is likely heading for a 30+ mpg role on a team with a lot of jabronis.

    I spent a good chunk of FAAB on him, keeper league too. Seems like he has a pretty fantasy friendly game and in line for a lot of minutes. I like the 2nd-3rd year players time who have a year or two in the league and are primed for breakouts without the rookie hype. He was the highest percentage unowned guy in my league too at the time, so its not like the ww is super deep. In shallower leagues, you can cycle these guys out for when they are hot and cool down better. I dont think the ceiling is super high, but his non injury floor also seems decent.

    Well I agree that most people don't use the PR on ESPN. If someone is a top 10 player on the player rater for the first half of the season, I am not suggesting they should be valued as a top 10 player going forward, just that they were a top 10 player for that half a season. I would not draft Blake Snell in the first round next year despite being a top 8 roto player this year. The Irony is this discussion is about Vlad, and if we just took out SBs as a category and 4x4 was the standard we went by, Vlad's value would be significantly higher and it would matter even less what position he played at. His lack of speed and the fact that he's probably getting bigger leaves his margin for error in HR/AVG so small for him to be an elite asset in 5x5 dynasty. Vlad is the #1 prospect for most people, but for him to have the year someone like Mookie Betts just had without steals is nearly impossible.

    The notion that there are too many mouths to feed on this s--- team is laughable. I've seen many times in fantasy basketball where every starter on the team is fantasy relevant in say a 12 team league. Eventually the best players get the most usage. They aren't going to hinder Lavert's development and chance to be something for Allen Crabbe.

    The Saints are 4-1 and have a championship on their mind. They aren't going to run either guy into the gruond if they can help it. It's going to be a timeshare situation, but probably the best timeshare in the league.
  20. I have long been an ESPN fantasy stan. It was simple, easy to use. The worst part was you couldn't customize too much, which I could live with rather easily with what they have. The main page of my league has the standings in random order. I'm sure that will get fixed, but it's stupid. I use to be able to search for a player on the home page. Just type in "smith" in the top right and it would quickly show me all the smiths to see if they were owned or not. Now I have to go to the "players" page and type in smith. Then it defaults to just showing available players, so if I wanted to see what teams a Smith was on or see his stats I''d have to click and load a seperate page again. When I click a players pop up it will only show you 5 categories and minutes despite the fact that standard fantasy basketball is 8 or 9 categories. The website takes a lot longer to load There is no player rater page This is all truly unacceptable. I'm really not the type of person to complain just because something is different, but I'm guessing they paid a lot of money to re-design their platform to have less features. Just mindboggling. Probably switching all my leagues to fantrax next year (baseball, footbal, and basketball).
  21. Devin Booker 2018-2019 Season Outlook

    He was a monster last year, just missed almost 30 games. Seems like a 2nd round caliber player if he stays healthy with back end 1st upside. He has a chance to be a similar contributor to Kobe Bryant in the 25-5-5 sense. Obviously not prime Kobe, but similar to the non prime years with less steals but more 3s.

    Not even posts I was a part of but when a poster says "I think Vlad is a generational talent" a response like "So was Buxton and Moncada LOL" make very little sense unless that original poster also said the same thing about Buxton and Moncada. I'm not sure how someone else's opinion on Buxton and Moncada 2 years ago is relevant to someone else discussing Vlad. You can probably find a quote by some random person about any #1 prospect being a generational talent. That doesn't make that a consensus opinion nor does it have anything to do with separate analysis about Vlad. I do not think Buxton and Moncada are generational talents, but I wouldn't write off their careers either. Neither are even 25. I'm willing to concede that I'm unsure of how Vlad's defense will progress in the majors. He could end up being a Corner OF, 3b, 1b, or DH. If he's the elite hitter over time than many think he will be, it won't have much effect on his fantasy value. Surely DH would be non ideal, but I think we are years away from that, and if he's a 30-300 hitter, it's not that big of a deal ultimately. Like many posters have said, everyone is aware that prospects aren't fool proof. I'd be pretty shocked if Vlad wasn't at least a good hitter in the majors.

    That is why I asked you to read the discussion and Tony's post from that thread. It explains all of that. I have it bookmarked for when people have misinformed takes on the ESPN PR and what it's use is and why it's better than most out there (while not perfect) It's a great read!
