  1. your take on the Bears defense is trash
  2. Howard owners still starting Howard is hilarious
  3. I don't know about you guys but I only come into the game threads for the pdogging. Its like a car crash - no matter how hard I try not to I just have to look!

    This is a bit ridiculous. Just looking at the projections you can expect Trout to have have ~50 more R+RBI, about 100 points better in OBP, almost 200 points better in OPS, and a bunch more HR's. Even if Acuna improves some he's still pretty far from Trout. Acuna could have more steals though, I'll give you that.
  5. Gregory Polanco 2019 Outlook

    In redrafts I'm completely ignoring Polanco on draft day. Good chance he ends up on lots of waiver wires, and even when he comes back there's no telling what kind of power he'll have, if any, after serious shoulder surgery. Even in keeper leagues I'll be avoiding him the plague.
  6. Adalberto Mondesi 2019 Outlook

    Tim Anderson walked ~30% more often than Mondesi and his popup rate was less than half that of Mondesi. Also, not to knock 5x5 roto, but in my three 6x6 H2H leagues (all on Yahoo) Anderson finished the season ranked #169, #172, and #172. If you're saying that's a reasonable mean outcome for Mondesi, then drafting him anywhere in the top 10 rounds would be pretty laughable, and taking him in the top 3 rounds is just lighting money on fire. Maybe I just value this particular skill set way way less than people who play strictly 5x5 roto, but when I reach for a player with a limited track record I'm doing it becasue the player's underlying power and plate discipline metrics are solid - not becasue he had a 30 game hot streak or becasue I get lured in with flashes of league leading stolen base type speed.

    He has some serious red flags, with his 7:1 K:BB ratio being first and foremost. That, combined with his extreme propensity for popups, could lead to a terrible average. I wouldn't be at all surprised if he hits below .240 and he will likely struggle to keep his OBP over .300 He also had a nearly 20% HR/FB ratio which is very unlikely to be repeated over a full season. A lot of people are expecting 25-30 HRs but I think 18-20 is more realistic. He has a ton of helium because of his crazy hot last month, but I feel like a lot of people are going to be duped. He hit ~60% of his HRs , had 46% of his RBI, and 44% of his steals in his final 26 games which was about a third of his total games. People like to extrapolate his 290 plate appearances into a full season worth of stats, but that one hot month month really skews things in such a small sample.

    Maybe you forgot to read the end of the sentence that you quoted?
  9. Kris Bryant 2019 Outlook

    If you pass on him in the 4th and 5th rounds you're making an even bigger mistake than the other 11 owners just made.
  10. Real GMs don't make fantasy trades. This (and most of your other proposals) is completely unrealistic. When a star like Goldy is traded, its not for another aging player likely going into the decline phase of his career.

    Feels like Villar going into 2017. Huge bust potential, minimal upside in relation to his likely ADP
  12. Whit Merrifield 2019 Outlook

    This is incredibly misleading. Altuve got hurt which resulted in Merrifield getting over 100 plate appearances more than him. The fact is that Altuve actually had a better AVG, OBP, SLG, OPS, BB%, K%, ISO, wRC+ and wOBA. Altuve was better across the board in every offensive category last year except stolen bases, and their 2018 projections aren't really close.

    So basically you're saying that the sound idea is: "all you have to do is draft the guy that will have a huge points advantage over every other player as his position!" Wow thanks for the insight! Unfortunately you have to be able to correctly identify the right players as well.
  14. 2019 First Rounders Discussion

    Posting this after reading just the OP. I'll preface my opinions by saying that I skew all my rankings towards H2H and my most important leagues are all 6x6 No chance I ever take Baez or Trea in the 1st round. Baez's profile is much too unpredictable and Turner showed last year that he's no lock for the 60+ steals everyone expected and the power (barely over .400 SLG) was really disappointing. I easily take both Bregman and Story before either of those two (not that I necessarily take Story in the 1st). Judge is also a mid-1st round pick for me. He was once again on a top 10 overall pace before the hbp derailed his season. Edit read a lot of the replies, and see that both Story and Bregman were discussed quite a bit
