  5. Outside of gurriel, it’ll give you an idea of the vicinity of where guys will go. There will also be bad picks in any draft. I think they got caught up a little too much in a SP run.
  6. ROUND THREE1 Blake Snell, P, TAM2 Anthony Rendon, 3B, WAS3 Xander Bogaerts, SS, BOS4 Bryce Harper, OF, PHI5 Clayton Kershaw, P, LAD6 Javier Baez, SS, CHI7 Jose Altuve, 2B, HOU8 George Springer, OF, HOU9 Jonathon Villar, 2B SS, BAL10 Starling Marte, OF, PIT11 Yordan Alvarez, U, HOU12 Ketel Marte, 2B OF, ARZ13 Austin Meadows, OF, TAM14 Giancarlo Stanton, OF, NYY15 Keston Hiura, 2B, MIL
  7. Can already tell you I’m going to be staying clear from most of that third tier
  8. I don’t know. Guy who took Yuli also took bregman. Maybe he’s an Astros fan? I don’t have an answer as to why Rendon dropped. It’s the first draft. There will be mistakes.
  9. Yea that seems like a reach/panic to get a 1b
  10.

  11. Nfbc message board. I don’t think there is a way to follow unless someone starts tweeting the results. I *think* Paul sporer is in it.
  12. Nfbc doing their first draft. First round... 1. Ronald Acuna Jr, OF, ATL 2. Christian Yelich, OF, MIL 3. Mike Trout, OF, LAA 4. Trea Turner, SS, WAS 5. Cody Bellinger, OF, 1B, LAD 6.

Juan Soto, OF, WAS 14. Nolan Arenado, 3B, COL 15. Fernando Tatis Jr., SS, SD
  13. The royals will want someone to pick up his contract. Nobody is doing that
  14. I’m very curious where Jonathan Villar goes. He’s got the stats of a second rounder, but the name of Jonathan Villar
  15. That graph is interesting. If I go to greinke, where you start to see the bigger differences, the total difference is 12.9 slots. That doesn’t sound like a lot but considering the volume of drafts and that these picks are early, I think it is. Severino is pretty interesting. The public basically said “I’m out” where the nfbc drafts (mistakingly) decided to take the risk.
  16. The higher the order in the draft you go, the more impactful a difference in adp is. There’s a bigger difference between 15 and 17 adp than 45 and 47... if that makes any sense. Small differences early on are impactful and eventually people in the “other” use nfbc adp to make their decisions. It sets the trends. So the “other” catches up with the nfbc by late March. They are having an early draft this Sunday then won’t have any more until their site goes live “some time after the World Series”. Guys like Sporer and other players who have won are in it. They said they’ll post the first 6 rounds. I’ll try to post that here if no one else does.
  17. Nfbc is the trend setter. They have been pushing up aces and speed the last two years.
  18. It’s a skill game. That doesn’t mean there isn’t luck involved. Even head to head requires a certain skill set. there isnt a percentage of skill vs a percentage of luck. It’s a skill game involving incomplete information (or “luck”). It’s not that difficult of a concept to grasp. It’s similar to poker. What are the skills? Drafting, player evaluations, buying, holding, selling, negotiating with other owners, adjusting to all kinds of things. The “luck”/incomplete information (also known as gambling) is that I myself have no control over a batter vs hitter matchup. I don’t control player performances. I’m just watching. I don’t have control of injuries, especially fluke ones. I can adjust/acquire a group of players that put me in the best position to win over the long haul. I adjust to the ups and downs of the season just like a good poker player adjusts to the players at his table. Most times it works, sometimes it doesn’t. That’s the fun of it though.
  19. The skill is adjusting and using incomplete information to form a group of players to put you in the best position to win. Like poker and other games, There will be luck involved, but fantasy sports will always be a game of effort and skill
  20. I’d just like to mention what a huge pathetic loser this guy has been when its mattered the most
  21. Im talking about average adp. Trout has been the first player taken for a number of years. Next year that changes in 5x5. Trout doesn’t run anymore
  22. Acuna is going to have the #1overall adp. Some will still take trout & yelich, and that’s fine. There really isn’t a wrong answer there.
  23. Trout has been the 1.1 for about 5 years
