  1. Pick my final 3 keepers for 2018 WHIR

    Buxton, Devers, and Myers. I'd want to keep McCullers so bad with your offense, but I'm a fan of these three.

    Yeah there is no perfect situation. But there is less incentive to tank because if you try to compete and miss out you have the same odds as the bottom teams of getting a top 3 pick. But you do still have to give the bottom teams something to work with to get better. It's just an idea to get teams to compete a bit more. If the MLB believes this is an issue I think it may help a bit.

    This is off the top of my head for a lottery system (which is probably the best route). But I look at revamping the way the NHL/NBA does it, and maybe that brings some balance to trying to win but still getting a good draft pick if you suck. What you do is do a lottery for each of the top 3 picks between the 20 non-playoff teams. Where I think it could differ from the NHL/NBA is giving each of the 20 teams the same odds of landing the #1 pick. So 5% each. Then after the top 3 are drawn the rest of the non-playoff teams slot in reverse standings. As normal. So if you come last and lose all 3 lottery picks, you get 4th overall. But still the odds of getting #1 are the same for the last place team and the first non-playoff team. Maybe this makes no sense at all. Was just a thought.
  4. I Overpayed For Nurkic?

    I'll definitely keep that in mind! Maybe this deal will help the tank.. Lol.
  5. I Overpayed For Nurkic?

    I appreciate the time put into this. I'm not new to fantasy, but basketball I am for sure. I've had success in the past overpaying on deals with players I won't keep for guys I will. In any form you guys do know more than I, so I'll accept the loss. If Nurkic goes out and produces a step up next year I'll have no issues with the deal, so lets hope for that. Thanks for the time guys.
  6. I Overpayed For Nurkic?

    Alright. Thanks for your feedback!
  7. I Overpayed For Nurkic?

    More than fair. 23 Y.O. with the potential he has isn't at least okay for 2 guys who meant very little to me? Lol
  8. Now I'm pretty confident I overpayed.. But I'm hoping I did okay here in a keeper long term. Gave: Dragic, Kanter Received: Nurkic We start two centers, and I have none to keep. My 5 keepers are now Westbrook, Durant, Leonard, A. Gordon, and Nurkic. My foundation for next year: PG Westbrook SG Leonard G SF Durant PF Gordon F C Nurkic C BE Categories: FG%, FT%, 3PM, PTS, REB, AST, ST, BLK, TO So dispite the heavy price.. In a 14 team 5 keeper (can keep as long as I want) did I make out okay? I'm not a contender at all this year.
  9. Damian Lillard 2017-2018 Season Outlook

    This guy is pretty decent eh? I know my favourite trade this year. This guy is ballin out.
  10. Need A 5th Keeper! Russell?

    Does anybody else have an opinion on what I could deal for Russell? Try Dragic straight up and deal Aldridge for a draft pick if that works?
  11. Need A 5th Keeper! Russell?

    Yep. As long as I want. I've been trying to deal Aldridge and Dragic for a higher quality keeper (Turner, Mitchell, Beal, and others) with no luck.. Which is why I feel I may have to overpay. And are we talking about the same Gordon? I have Aaron. A 22 year old player of his calibre is pretty good in a keeper I would think.
  12. Hey guys. So I've been looking for a 5th keeper for a while to go along with my core 4, and have had no luck. I've primarily offered a package of Aldridge and Dragic for a large range of people. A guy who I believe is available, is D'Angelo Russell. Now what I don't know is where his value is at. The owner is a borderline playoff team that is probably looking at reinforcements (especially after his insane injury luck..), and has a selection of Curry/Simmonds/Embiid/Porzingis/Cousins/J.Murray to choose from for 5 keepers. Seems like Russell is on the outside. So my question is what would you pay for him? Is Aldridge enough? Would you pay Aldridge and Dragic? I'm nowhere near a contender this year, and my keepers IF I got Russell would be Westbrook/Durant/Leonard/Gordon/Russell. Which should put me in a spot to contend next year. If I'm missing any information you need please tell me. Thanks guys!

    https://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/baseball/news/2018-fantasy-baseball-draft-prep-breakouts-1-0-featuring-gerrit-cole-blake-snell-and-yoan-moncada/ I found this article the other day from CBS, and if you scroll to the Bundy section of it, it talks about his slider usage throughout all of last year and its effect on his numbers. Here's the bulk of it (without the charts): I thought it was an interesting point. I'll be targeting him in the range he is going personally. Low risk high reward. Exactly what you want nearing the end of your draft.
  14. Which deal to make? Whir

    Butler/Harris looks nice.
  15. I Just Traded Steph.

    Any non-Batum drop suggestion for Smith Jr..? Assuming I drop Lopez for Vuc. Batum is my only SF.
