  1. You are way off. People follow baseball. They want to know who are the best future players. Not who is going to be one dimensional player who may help in a few fantasy categories. Finding lists that are EXCLUSIVELY targeting fantasy baseball prospects doesn't really exist. All the major ones - BA, BP, Fangraphs, MLBpipeline, etc, etc, etc, are ALL based on actual baseball value.
  2. Yordan sucks defensively. Fangraphs isn't doing a fantasy baseball top 100. They are doing a baseball top 100. The fact that Yordan is basically stuck at DH (or atrocious fielder) his entire career limits his value. I agree that both Grayson Rodriguez and Dylan Carlson should be in the top 100. They are both just outside (Carlson is 101; Rodriguez is 102). But I'd think both should be much higher.
  3. I don't understand why everyone is upset that he sits vs. lefties. Wouldn't you rather his .550 OPS vs. lefties be on the bench, so you can put literally anyone else in his spot and get actual production? You get his 1.000 OPS vs. righties and someone else's .800 OPS when he's on the bench and you get a superstar instead of his 1.000 OPS vs. righties and .550 OPS vs lefties.
  4. The league has keeps 8 minor leaguers a year, and when kept only cost $1 each year. As a result there's massive auction inflation. Probably about 35% higher than normal. For instance, Betts, Trout, and Scherzer all went for over $60
  5. 12 teams, 5x5 with OPS instead of BA. Ca: Contreras $3 (keeper) 1B: Abreu $14 2B: Carpenter $17 (keeper) 3B: Turner $13 (keeper) SS: Segura $19 (keeper) MI: Shaw $13 (keeper) CI: Myers $20 LF: Rosario $19 CF: Hamilton $5 RF: Domingo Santana $6 UT: Haniger $10 (keeper) UT: McCutchen $17 Bench includes no one useful but Ohtani. Maybe Ji-Man Choi SP: Hendricks $11, Hill $10, Gray $6, Matz $6, Musgrove $6, Wood $4, Godley $2 RP: Allen $11, Alvarado $15, Robertson $13, Herrera $3, Jimenez $4 (closers tend to go super expensive in our league for some reason) I figured for the first time, I'd try to do the strategy where I spent a lot on hitters and closers, and scraping a pitching staff together on discounted SPs. I also tried getting a well balanced team without any major holes or relying on any superstars
  6. Wisdom of the crowds. Take an average of all of them.
  7. also now looking at Vidal Brujan. Since none of the others really jump off the page, he could at least be a game changing speedster.
  8. Based on Baseball America's top 5 best availables (people not already owned in my league) - here are my options. The league is a 12 team league where we keep 8 minor leaguers and 7 major leaguers each year. It's a normal 5x5 league with OPS instead of BA. if it matters, here are my current 7 minor leaguers: Kyle Tucker, Alex Kirilloff, Brendan Rodgers, Alex Reyes, Luis Robert, Jesus Sanchez, Triston McKenzie Now onto what I think are my next 5 Casey Mize - #1 pick, a ranked as a top 20 prospect, so most obvious choice. But I keep getting burned by pitching prospects in this league getting hurt. And hitters have more value than pitchers in fantasy baseball in general Joey Bart - 22, so he's most likely close to the majors, which is nice. But catchers tend to develop much more slowly. He definitely showed great promise with a .950 OPS and 13 homers in just over 200 AB Nolan Jones - huge walk rate, but was only a second round pick. Seems to be risky relying on one year. But could be a .300/.400/.500 guy at 3B with 20 homers. Jonathan India - not a lot of downside. Polished collegiate hitter: 20/20 potential Victor Victor Mesa - toolsy upside (but I already have Jonathan Sanchez and Luis Robert as that kind of prospect) who has speed, but no power yet

  10. Explain to me why you think if he gets traded to the Vikings he only has to sit out 3 games (since they don't play in week 4), whereas if it gets traded to anyone else he has to sit out 4 games? Everything I've read is that this suspension is classified in terms of "games", not "weeks". If he has to sit out 4 GAMES then if he gets traded to a team with a bye week during one of those weeks.
  11. I think the Rams would be a clear #2, and possibly #1. Stl is clearly willing to throw, and Jackson would get a Roddy White like # of the throws from Bradford. I'd personally rather have him go to STL than even Minn (selfishly since I have Adrian Peterson already)
  12. I can't imagine that if he gets traded to Minn he'd be eligible any time before week 6. The suspension is clearly "4 games", and they have a week 4 bye. Unless they can do something where Jackson stays on San Diego's roster through week 4, but I doubt they'd do that.
  13. Rice is going to be on crutches for another 2-3 weeks, so I don't think he'll be playing until around Thanksgiving.
  14. Yeah, I knew I reached on Jackson early (6th round in a 14 team league), but now it really sucks. Wish I'd grabbed a QB instead.
