  1. Chad Bettis 2018 Outlook

    Home against SD and at Miami next week. Is he good enough for a short-term pickup at least?
  2. Jurickson Profar 2018 Outlook

    So Rotoworld called it a "mild concussion." Any Rangers fans hear if Profar will avoid the DL and be back soon?

    What's this guy's dynasty value? Any thoughts about his long-term upside?
  4. Championship squads

    Thanks! Love dynasty, it's the only format I play anymore with the exception of one keeper baseball league. We have a vacant team that needs a new manager in that first league I mentioned, but TBH you'd have some serious work to do with it. PM me if you're interested and I can hook you up with the commish.
  5. Championship squads

    B2B champ in my 16-team H2H dynasty league! When Butler got hurt, managed to flip him for Jrue and RHood, who I had to drop at one point during the playoffs. Thinking this young team might actually BE a dynasty for a 16-teamer: Teague, Jrue, Draymond, Giannis, Gobert, Embiid, Horford, D Russell, D Mitchell, Rivers, Dedmon, Ellington, and Trey Burke. Might be even prouder of my other dynasty team that won the chip. 20-team H2H salcap league with savvy managers, so very competitive. Have to stay under the cap and you can't drop a player unless he's in the last year of his contract. So with that said, here's my winning roster: Harden, Lou Will, Ben Simmons, Gobert, M Gasol, Dirk, Gay, Hood, Lance S, Marcus Morris, Siakam, Sabonis, and Seldon.
  6. Andrew Triggs 2018 Outlook

    Thanks for the detailed response! The fact that he pitches half his games in Oakland is another reason I took notice. Plus I also play in a 20-team league, deep with savvy managers. Definitely giving him a close look.
  7. Anything to see here? Might be worth a look late in drafts of 12+ teams now that he's earned a rotation spot. He was great before getting hurt last season, and I've seen him listed on a few sleeper/deep sleeper lists this preseason, including these: http://fantasysixpack.net/2018-fantasy-baseball-pitching-super-sleepers/ http://rotoprofessor.com/baseball/?p=35066 https://www.faketeams.com/2017/11/21/16683566/5-deep-fantasy-baseball-sleepers-going-into-2018-drafts-kike-hernandez-enrique-colin-moran-jurickson Excerpt from the last link: Andrew Triggs, SP, Oakland Athletics Triggs is one of the most interesting players going into 2018. Before reaching the major leagues, he had only started one of his 168 career minor leagues games. Since reaching the major leagues he has started half of the games he has pitched in. There are some questions concerning Triggs status in the rotation. It is still unknown if the he will start the season in the bullpen or rotation, but he could prove to be a valuable asset either way. I say that because with the declining number of innings starting pitchers are throwing, middle relievers could prove to actually be quite valuable in 2018. The reason I like Triggs so much is mostly due to his ability to produce ground balls and reduce hard contact. His lifetime 50.3% ground ball rate and 26.8% hard contact rate are very impressive, especially from someone who seems to not get much love at all. I know some people may see that 6.89 K/9 from last season and get scared off, but don’t let that frighten you too much as he has shown signs of improvement. His 10.4% swinging strike rate and 75.7% contact rate would suggest that his K/9 will most likely be around eight in 2018. Not only can Triggs accumulate a decent amount of strikeouts, but he doesn’t walk many batters either. He owns a career 2.37 BB/9, which is quite impressive. If you combine that with a 8 K/9 and a good amount of ground balls, he could prove to be one of the most overlooked players entering 2018 drafts.
  8. DeShields and Hamels for Puig? WHIR

    You said in your post you got offered DeShields and Hamels, but I see from your sig that they're on your team. If you're trading away Puig, I'd take the deal...like the previous poster, I'm also wary of Puig with his inconsistent play and attitude. But if you're the one getting Puig in the deal, I'd stay put. I prefer the upside young speedster and solid veteran arm. Thanks for the help with mine.
  9. Which side would you rather have in a 20-team dynasty league, h2h with standard cats plus OPS and holds. I'd be getting the Mets guys. Is the upgrade from Thames to Cespedes worth giving up Hand for Familia? My other closers are Diaz and Ziegler. I could potentially get Nate Jones added to bolster my RPs a bit more. I'm in "win now" mode not rebuild, if that matters. Thoughts? And leave a link for help in return.
  10. Any value for this guy in the fantasy playoffs now that he's getting minutes and the Clips have such a favorable schedule?
  11. Notice they now how this message posted: We are aware of the issues with stats and transactions for Fantasy Basketball and are working on a fix. Apologies for the inconvenience and thanks for your patience.
  12. Anyone heard why Yahoo's stats from last night aren't showing up in basketball? Also, I had a trade that was supposed to process on 3/1 which is still sitting there. Anyone know what's up (or down) with them?
