  1. Buy Low/Sell High 2018

    In the league format you are in and with the team you have, you are primarily looking for upside. Reyes has much higher upside. I'd make that trade.

    Not at all what I'm saying, obviously post whenever/however you'd like! But if you are in an 8 team league you don't need advice. There's no challenge there. Flip a coin, which superstar filled team will be better this year. It's not the same game as competitive fantasy baseball in my personal opinion.

    32/150 is silly. But I guess so is 8 team. Hopefully the type people who would come to a message forum and discuss players are more serious and tend towards deeper, more challenging leagues.

    Makes sense, 25 man rosters are pretty short. Here are a few examples of deep leagues -- In a 15 team mixed with 40 man rosters, 15 team mixed with 30 man rosters, or even a 12 team Only with 30 man rosters, he isn't close to droppable for me.

    You could use the basis of being in a deep league. Unfortunately fantasy is not as binary as some would make it seem. Sure in an 8 team league you would drop him, but then again what's the point of playing in an 8 team league in the first place? I'm in multiple leagues where any pitcher who has started a game and any hitter that has a HR or SB is rostered. Deep leagues do exist, and they are quite fun. In a deep league, Ian Happ is quite valuable, even with his current stats.

    Couldn't agree more - not enough K potential there to be a reliable option in fantasy.

    Odd - you do realize that applies to literally every player in fantasy baseball, right? Buy lows do happen. Owners panic.
  8. Ian Happ 2018 Outlook

    Turning a corner? He had a rough week in March/April. Outside of that he was a fantasy asset last year, he was huge in spring, and he's been exactly what we expected in 2018 (outside those few games). It's amazing how much some buy into small sample sizes and arbitrary endpoints in April.
  9. Ian Happ 2018 Outlook

    Based on usage so far he's on pace for 500 ABs, so honestly that doesn't make much sense to complain about. Also he's hitting .292/.346/.458 in April. Small sample sizes are killing your narrative unfortunately.

    It seems like you don't understand what super 2 is. Also the word "super" does not appear anywhere in that article. You may be confusing it with service time considerations which happen in mid April (as you alluded to with the Urias sentence).
  11. Ian Happ 2018 Outlook

    Yes, actual deep fantasy leagues do exist. i.e. NL Only and 15+ team mixed. In those leagues you would not bench Happ just due to a slump for 8 or 10 games, any more than you'd bench Trout in a 10 team league.
  12. Adam Eaton 2018 Outlook

    Not sure if you are serious. He won't be a part time player all season he's just getting kid gloves while coming back from an injury.
  13. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Outlook

    Doubt he's worth it as a hitter, I'd recommend keeping him in the pitching slot at all times until he's shown something that suggests otherwise.
  14. This is ridiculous. Even in my own custom written web app that I use to run my own drafts (which as ~50 hours of work on it), you assign players to a team and the app can figure out on it's own where to place them. If you have Jose Ramirez and then draft a 2B, Ramirez is a 3B. If you have him and then draft a 3B then he's a 2B. You should never have to "assign" a player to a role. As long as there is a configuration that works, the app should figure it out on its own. This is really not hard at all.

    Isn't the right answer normally somewhere in the middle? Don't pick him at 3 now with the added risk of losing a good portion of his HR. But if he slides to you at 10 because everyone is afraid, pounce.
