  1. There's a team in the league that I run called Sunday Bed $hitters for this exact reason. Happens to me a lot too. I had an 11-3 lead on Sunday 2 weeks ago and 10-4 on a Sunday 3 weeks ago and lost both matches 8-7. I am playing him this week and up 9-6 today. We'll see who craps it.
  2. Contreras, Baez, Correa, Minor, Caleb Smith, Montas, Paddack, Giles and Neris got me a total of 18 points this week. An average of 2 points a piece. That's like 2 singles for each hitter or 2 k's for each pitcher. Well done boys.
  3. 10 team H2H categories. 6 keepers. No rounds for keepers. Just straight 6. Was offered Machado for J Ram. Both will turn 27 this year. Manny has a longer track record, but I think JRam fills more categories. Of our 9 hitter categories, last year JRam had Manny 6-3. Whatchoo think?
  4. Did I say I was going to drop him or did I ask how he looked? I'm sorry I did at this point.
  5. And maybe that was why I was asking how he has looked so far. Even in 4 games, he could look pretty crappy.
  6. 2-17 so far and absolutely nothing but those 2 singles on the stat sheet. He tore up spring training, so I bought into it, reluctantly. Maybe he was just facing some not so good pitching? After 2 down years, is he really done this time? I haven't seen any live ab's to see what he looks like.
  7. I despise slow drafts. I joined a random new Dynasty on Fantrax. Then the draft started and was told it was a slow draft. The commissioner is giving up to 8 hours per pick. 8!!!! It was supposed to start at 5pm Sunday, but the #1 pick apparently forgot he signed up. So then the commish put it on hold until we got a replacement. It started on 8am on Monday. We are not even through round 5, 50 hours later. There are 50 rounds. My last pick in round 4 was 21 hours ago!!!! He said that he will lessen the time soon, but this is still ridiculous. Never again with the slow draft.
  8. Looking to join a H2H Dynasty up to $50. Doesn't matter the site. Would be willing to start from fresh, but also willing to take over a team as long as it had any chance. Some I've seen, I know why the owner bailed on them and it would just be wasted money. Just want to join a league that will keep up and running year after year. Been playing for 20+ years and am commish of a 20 year keeper. Also is 2 other keepers for multiple years.
  9. 10 team H2H Categories 6 keeper. Can keep any 6 players for how ever long you want. They basically use rounds 1-6, then the draft starts. My keepers are: Acuna, Soto, T.Turner, J.Ramirez, DeGrom. My last keeper is between Nola and Torres. I don't usually keep pitchers as I never trust their arms to stay healthy. I am making an exception with DeGrom this year. Do I add to that risk and keep Nola as well? I feel like Torres is a type 25 keeper in any keeper/dynasty format and might keep his SS eligibility with Didi hurting and Tulo sure to go down at some point.
  10. 10 team H2H Points. Keep 6. Rosters lock on Monday for scoring week. Baez as a 15th Kershaw as a 12th( I think I've decided that I don't trust him at all, even at this discount) G.Sanchez as a 25th I am keeping R.Acuna, J.Soto, C.Correa, T.Turner and Vlad Jr. Would I be better off keeping a catcher over Baez? We have 2B, SS, MI and UTIL, so I could fit in all 4 of Baez, Correa, Turner and Vlad any given week.
  11. I joined the league 6 years ago and this is how it was setup. It really does ruin the value of the top of the draft as I said, my 1st round pick last year was Quintana, so its hard to get any value at the top. I always get value from prospects off of the wire that are last rounders. Hence, my current lineup of late round keepers. 1 catcher league also. I kept Sanchez last year.
  12. Last year 20 of the 60 keepers were pitchers. It seems like pitching is usually what determines who wins the matchups because wins are +10 and losses are -10. I don't like to keep pitchers, but with Kershaw as a 12th, I've kept him for the last 5 years or so. Might be time to move on, but I'm not sure there will be alot left to start a staff with. Last year I had to draft Quintana with my 1st pick and that pretty much blew up my staff.
  13. 10 Team H2H Points I need to choose 6 keepers from the following list. Whatever round a player is picked in will ALWAYS stay his keeper round, unless he is dropped and redrafted the next season. If you have multiple players of the same round, then one of them moves up a round just for that year and then back to original once the new season starts. Free Agents are valued as a last round keeper. Below is the list I need to choose from and their keeper round. Ronald Acuna 6 Juan Soto 25 Javier Baez 15 Gary Sanchez 25 Clayton Kershaw 12 Trea Turner 25 Cody Bellinger 25 Carlos Correa 25 Vladimir Guerrero Jr 25 My first choices are: Acuna, Soto, Turner, Kershaw, Vlad and either Baez or Correa. So I would lose rounds 6, 12, 15, 23, 24, 25 or 6, 12, 22, 23, 24, 25. Pretty good start, but since a lot of stars are last round keepers it really messes up the first few rounds as the actual talent there is not actually top of the draft talent. Anyway, which 6 would you go with?
  14. 2015: #3 Seed 9-5 Lost in the first round 112-112. Tie goes to higher seed. 2016: #3 seed 10-4 Lost in the first round with 64 points. Lowest point total of the year. 2017: #2 seed 12-2 Lost in the first round with 125 points. I was up 125-100 with Gurley left against me. I watched him put up 41 points against my Hawks while in the stadium. 2018: #2 seed 10-4 Lost in the first round. Currently have 43 pts and projected to 61pts. Lowest point total of the year. I hate fantasy football.
  15. My 3 lowest scoring weeks the last 3 weeks. #2 seed and out. May have something to do with losing 2 of my 3 keepers, Hunt and OBJ, and Adam Thielen turning into just a guy.
  16. They just keep ramming Chubb uo the middle for nada. How about some creativity.
  17. Lost 2 of my keepers, Hunt and OBJ and went against, TY Hilton, Barkley, Hill and Kittle. 745 yards from 4 guys. They got 90 pts combined. I had my lowest point total of the year and they beat my whole team themselves.
  18. Aaaaaaaaaand I used Njoku and he got skunked. I give up.
  19. Had OJ Howard and Jimmy Graham at TE. They both got injured. Picked up Jordan Reed and Jack Doyle. Doyle to IR and Reed hurt as he always is. Picked up Njoku. He's questionable. In a position that is already hard to fill with someone consistent, this is making it increasingly difficult.
  20. I was 5-4 and in 4th place. My team scored 157, 132 and 132+ a kicker left this week. Lost all 3. Out of the playoffs.
  21. Well Kupp is probably now out as a keeper. My options are now much slimmer. I am 5-5 and currently in the 4th playoff spot. I can still get Zeke for DJ. I would have to keep him as a 1st instead of DJ as a 4th. I'll still have Conner as a 7th. Zeke is still 3 years younger than DJ. Trade deadline is tomorrow. Please help!!!
