  1. D Freeman in 2/3. RB2 in a 10 team league and RB3 in a 14 team league.  

    Duke Johnson in 2/3. RB3 in both my 10 team leagues. 

    Tevin Coleman in 2/3. RB4 in both the 10 team leagues. 

    Matt Ryan in 2/3. Got him in both my 14 team and one 10 team league. 

    Cam Newton in 2/3. He’s on both my 10 team leagues.


  2. Boone told reporters today that he feels EE is ready to return “in the near future”. A bit vague but he’s been hitting in the cage and doing fielding and throwing drills so it could be pretty soon. Not sure when minors games end and if they can get some rehab games in for him.

    Fair or foul - Cxckblocking streaming against your team?  Opponent gets up at a** crack of dawn (or works nights) and grabs two best streamers each morning for the next day.  I have a couple roster spots open right now that I could grab the best streamers for the following day ie he grabs Wednesday streamers this morning, I could grab Thursdays best streaming options today and cut them on Wednesday sending them to waiver wire so he couldn't grab them tomorrow morning sorta deal.  I have no intent to pitch them, just keep them from my opponent.  I could do this the rest of the week always being a day ahead and then dropping them to waivers preventing him from getting them. 

    Legit strategy right?  All's fair in love, war and fantasy baseball?

     

    I don't see anything wrong with this. I can see how it could certainly annoy your opponent but hey if it's within the rules you can use your moves however you'd like. Most standard league rules do require you to hold onto a player for at least one full day after acquiring in order for them to be placed on waivers when you drop them. I only really do this if our pitching stats are close at the end of a weekly h2h matchup in an effort to prevent my opponent from getting k's or a win that would give him the edge in those categories. We do have a 100 move limit for the regular season and playoffs combined so if I have the extra moves why not?

    Can you compare that to Drew Smyly or send me a link to the site use?  I'm glancing at them both in the MLB.com stats and they seem similar in profile but I can't seem to find k-bb%, swstr%, etc. 

     

    Yeah you can find it all on fangraphs.com. You can sort by leaders in both pitching and hitting stats and metrics.

  5. It’s just baffling to me that he’s as bad as he is due to where he ranks in terms of a lot of metrics. He’s near the top of the league in k-bb%, SwStr%, xFIP, and SIERRA. But he’s also one of the worst in terms of fly ball % and hard hit %.

    Starting Gallen in Coors, what did you expect?

     

    I only did after watching Boyd begin my week off with a hot steamy pile on the mound. Also my opponent started off with an 8 era over his first 18 innings so I took the chance for the win. Gallen actually lowered my era and whip after what Boyd did.

    Go Nola and Miley! Please fix what Boyd did to me yesterday. 

     

    Well damn. Miley is helping to make sure my weekly whip remains above a 2.00. Currently sitting at 14 innings of 6.91 era and 2.02 whip. 🤦‍♂️
