  1. Now that we're far enough into the season to asses (somewhat) how our teams were drafted, does anyone have any very good teams that successfully pulled off a good 9-cat punt this year? Already beginning next years preparations, as my team staring Dipo, Wall, Love, and Dejounte Murray is squarely out of contention
  2. FG Points league, Dynasty, Keep forever, inaugural draft, 24 team... HELP
  3. Corbin Burnes 2019 Outlook

    What concerns me with him is how little success he had with his secondary pitches. Yes, he's immensely talented, but at the MLB level it was really only his fastball that got him results. (Pitch Values Per 100) Not a great look for a starter. Obviously he can improve, but he NEEDS to improve to be a viable starter I think.
  4. J.D. Martinez 2019 Outlook

    Yeah, love everything he does but I won't be taking him over Trout, Betts, JoRam, Lindor, Turner - steals are just too valuable. Then after than I think I'd have to give the nod to Arenado because of Coors, and I could easily be convinced of Yelich or any of the elite starters over him. Its all about speed early on I think.
  5. Jose Altuve 2019 Outlook

    He's a steal if you can get him in the second round. Like, sorry he didn't hit .350 last year, but he was still very very very good. With health and that elite lineup behind him, he's still a threat for 20hr/100r/80rbi/20sb/.315avg.
  6. Its stuff like this that makes me hate the NBA sometimes. Too often it feels like the league is built more on these huge clashing egos than attempting to win basketball games.
  7. Deep Dynasty Draft Strategy

    Yeah this was my thinking as well. I don't think I'm going to end up with many (if any) of the top, elite prospects. Just would rather have the safety of an established MLB player in the early rounds because it may prove difficult to get everyday players at every position.

    Theres a ton of pitchers I'll be targeting late in deep drafts if I go super heavy on hitting early; Anibal is close to the top of that list.
  9. 2019 Draft Strategy

    Oh for sure. I think its fantasy-suicide in H2H, but in Roto its just super difficult to win the league if your finishing with a 1 or 2 in saves.
  10. 2019 Draft Strategy

    I mean, thats WHY people use the high pick on them, because there are only a handful that are ~locks to keep their jobs all year. I wouldn't personally reach for one of those top tier guys, but I would advise against compensating by snagging multiple of the middle tier dudes. Just wait if your not gonna get an Edwin Diaz or Craig Kimbrel. Be smart on the wire as the year goes on, draft a few closers late, youll be fine.
  11. J.T. Realmuto 2019 Outlook

    Totally agree with what everyone is saying, but if you are playing in a league with anyone who is taking it seriously, this is going to inflate his value a ton. I still think the best value is going to be waiting on a catcher and trying to snag one of the middle tier ones (Perez, Yadi, Contreras, Posey, Grandal, or Ramos) who are all ADP 110-145 ish. I think thats where the value is. If your playing 5x5 and the Phillies land Harper, this may change. He could lead all catchers in both runs and RBIs with that lineup.
  12. Deep Dynasty Draft Strategy

    I think this is what I am planning on doing, but it is a 24 team league - If I wait too long, the pitching market will be barren as hell.
  13. Matt Olson 2019 Outlook

    I'll end up owning both of the Oakland Matts in as many leagues as I can. I think Olson is some good luck away from being a premier slugger, and Chapman is a small launch angle adjustment away from clearing 35 homers with ease.
  14. Deep Dynasty Draft Strategy

    FGpoints, so I think the top pitchers generally outperform the top hitters, though not by much. I still don't think that justifies going after pitching early in a dynasty because of how volatile and how short the shelf life of pitchers are.
