  1. Austin Meadows - OF PIT

    I have so much prospect fatigue with Meadows - I've been trying to trade him for over a year and was finally able to get the 2nd overall pick in our upcoming prospect draft for him, which was finally something that didn't feel like selling low.
  2. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Braves already confirmed they'll be dfa'ing Gonzo, so he'll end up a free agent quickly (per reports it was the only way to get Gonzo to agree to waive his no-trade clause).
  3. Ronald Acuna - OF ATL

    With the trade of Matt Kemp, guess who just got a spot cleared in the OF?
  4. Shohei Ohtani - SP/OF Japan (was: Otani)

    Yahoo did indeed confirm there will be two Ohtani's in the player pool yesterday: https://sports.yahoo.com/shohei-ohtanis-status-yahoo-fantasy-baseball-012323575.html
  5. Full Point PPR - need 3 of 5

    I've definitely considered this - one thing I really love about Graham this week is that he's coming off a no catch game and I could see Wilson looking to get him involved early and often (I'm a huge fan of playing stars after they've had terrible or down weeks). That said, I understand why you'd make the switch given that Ertz typically is a better volume play. Thanks for your thoughts!
  6. Who to start? WHIR 1Pt PPR

    Nice - based on how deep it is I think you have a great chance with the options you have available. Good luck!
  7. Full Point PPR - need 3 of 5

    Thanks guys, that's one vote for Ertz over Howard and another for Ertz over Burkhead so far.
  8. Who to start? WHIR 1Pt PPR

    So, to clarify, this is a 2QB/4WR/3RB/1Flex/2DEF league? If so, man is that ever deep. Assuming that's the case, I'd sub out Buffalo for Detroit at DEF. Everyone else looks fine.
  9. It's absolutely between Howard and Hunt as the other two are automatic plays. It's more or less a coin flip for me since both backs were struggling before coming alive in a big way last week. If forced to choose I'd go Howard over Hunt because I believe Howard has a clearer path to volume based production than Hunt does (really tough call for sure though, obviously or you wouldn't be here, haha).
  10. These five options are for my RB2, WR2 and Flex spots: RB - Jordan Howard (@DET) - Currently in my RB2 slot RB - Rex Burkhead (@PIT) - Currently in my Flex slot WR - Brandin Cooks (@PIT) - Currently in my WR2 slot TE - Zach Ertz (@ NYG) - Currently on the bench, but a great matchup, just nervous about the Foles factor WR - JuJu Smith-Schuster (NE) - Currently on the bench, but also a great matchup and looks like he might benefit from a favorable game script. Just to clarify, LeSean McCoy, Antonio Brown and Jimmy Graham currently occupy my RB1, WR1 and TE slots. Thanks for any thoughts and WHIR (as long as the question isn't encyclopedia length, haha). Cheers.
  11. Sterling Shepard 2017 Season Outlook

    Elsewhere yes, definitely not WR3 though.
  12. Sterling Shepard 2017 Season Outlook

    Gotta love when you drop Shepard to waivers based on the earlier report given that you have no choice (no one else to drop) and then the report ends up being completely wrong. No way to get him back either.
  13. Al Horford 2017-18 Season Outlook

    Kyrie was ball hogging it - only 1 assist tonight. Just one of those games, he still had 35+ minutes so I wouldn't be too concerned.
  14. Alvin Kamara 2017 Season Outlook

    Kamara, Gronk and Russell Wilson for me (whew.... for now at least).
  15. adding players when out of playoffs!?

    I like the idea of giving managers in the consolation bracket something to play for if you're going to allow moves for all teams in the playoffs, or having moves cost a certain amount per pickup in order to discourage teams out of the running from sabotaging the playoff teams. That said, if it's going to bother you in week 14 then you need to plan ahead and make sure the commissioner and the rest of the league agree on a plan ahead of time to ensure controversy and stress doesn't overshadow the fun factor. If the league agrees to a policy ahead of time, then even if you don't agree with it at least there will be no surprises down the road. And you can always find another league if you're really against whatever policy is enacted. I was in a league where I made the playoffs and teams out of the running continued to make moves left and right, which definitely hurt my chances that season, but I didn't say anything because the issue was never addressed in advance by the league so to me no one was breaking any league rule. However, the following season the commish (who was part of the eliminated teams the prior season) made the playoffs and subsequently locked every non-playoff team and proceeded to win. At that point I addressed the issue on the message board and received absolutely no response. As a result, I dropped out the the following season and haven't looked back.
