  1. 2018 Buy Low / Sell High Thread

    [Periodic reminder that this thread is for suggesting players to buy/sell at opportune times, not to tell everyone about trades you're thinking of making or have made.]
  2. Wil Myers 2018 Outlook

    Myers' ADP of 68 this season was too rich for my blood, but I have a feeling I'll be back in for 2019. He won't slip to 200 after coming into 2018 at 68 and adding 3B eligibility this year, but he did have some significant problems getting on the field prior to 2016 and 2017, so I think between the people who draft mostly based on what happened last year and the seasoned Myers owners who were bitten by his early career troubles, the discount will be significant. I think a slip into the 120-130 range is likely, and at that price, I'll take the risk of another injury-riddled season except in the deepest of leagues where the replacement value would be too low.
  3. Cody Bellinger 2018 Outlook

    The platoon splits are pretty bad this season, but I see no reason to think he can't figure things out. Career-wise he's 136 wRC+ vs. RHP and 115 vs. LHP, for a difference of about 15%. Freddie Freeman's career splits are 145 and 118 (18% difference), or 149 and 125 (16% difference) if you just want to look at the last 5 years. I'm not saying Bellinger is or will ever be Freddie Freeman, but why can't this just be an off year (dare I say "sophomore slump") where he rebounds to improve things next year? His ADP from the 2early mocks is 41, which isn't as much of a discount as I was hoping for after a disappointing year, but if it starts to slip next year as casual leagues push the ADP down into the 5th round or so (industry players are more likely to stay on a guy after a down year) then I think I'd jump back in.
  4. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    [Hey, I know owners and onlookers are excited here, but let's keep it relevant to Gordon's fantasy outlook and save the meme GIFs and yuk-yukking about 4:20 and cocaine use for your Twitter feed or something.]
  5. Derrick Henry 2018 Outlook

    The decision on what's relevant here isn't yours to make. If you're going to zoom in on a single game performance to make your points supporting Henry, then others are justified using a larger (albeit still very small) sample to support their position.
  6. Trevor Story 2018 Outlook

    The time to celebrate is when he's back in your lineup and showing no ill effects.
  7. Leonard Fournette 2018 Outlook

    [Cool Stories removed. We're seeing a lot of the same usernames posting irrelevant stories about their teams in outlook threads lately. If you're one of them, cut it out. And if you see one, report it or ignore it -- responding makes you part of the problem, no matter how sick a burn your reaction GIF is.]
  8. Aaron Nola 2018 Outlook

    Nola's HR/9 has regressed quite a bit in September, but he's still getting it done. The Phillies broadcast showed this tonight: but I think this is Kapler's plan for winning the division next season:
  9. IDP Rankings/Talk

    (In the Assistant Coach forum, yes.)
  10. Antonio Brown 2018 Outlook

    [Comments removed. Rumors are a dime a dozen. Making oblique references to rumors you've heard rarely goes well around here,. If you don't have a source that people can assess the credibility of, then it's highly likely your rumor isn't worth posting, and is just going to derail the thread.]
  11. Tyreek Hill value?

    [Welcome to the forums, @trevorknowsfantasy. Please make posts like this in the Football Assistant Coach forum. You'll need 10 posts elsewhere before you can post a new topic, as described here. Thanks.]
  12. Aaron Judge 2018 Outlook

    [Several removed. The last few comments were pretty far afield from Judge's outlook .The Yankees thread is over here for more general NYY topics.]
  13. Josh Gordon 2018 Outlook

    [Sorry, folks, but start/sit discussions are in the category of things that are technically supposed to stay in AC (since they're highly situational) but that we will sometimes slide under normal circumstances. As the message at the top of the page suggests, these are not normal circumstances, so please take "who's starting him" / "should I start him" discussions over to AC.]
  14. 2018 Buy Low / Sell High Thread

    [AC question/responses removed. As a reminder, this thread is for suggesting players that might be good candidates to sell or buy at opportune times. It is not a place to ask about valuations of specific players / packages of players. Those questions, being highly dependent on league context, need to go over in the AC forum.]
  15. Aaron Jones 2018 Outlook

    [Comments removed. Requests for advice on what to do if you own players X and Y need to be made in the AC forum. This thread is for generally applicable information about Jones' outlook, not situational advice for your team context.]
