  1. We generally let off topic stuff go in the offseason (to a point anyway) but for posterity, I'm moving the platform derail here from the Kingery thread. Fantrax is the only platform I've used that lets you customize eligibility parameters. I know it's fixed in Yahoo at 5 starts or 10 appearances and can't be customized. Not sure about others.
  2. I'm not aware of any public info about fantasy platform market share, but it stands to reason that "free" platforms would dwarf pay platforms. The reason you see industry mocks and podcasts talking about 20 game standards is because that's what their platforms (e.g. NFBC) use. I'd be stunned if NFBC, RTSports, and Fantrax add up to a quarter of either Yahoo or ESPN alone in terms of number of players.

  4. [Welcome to the forums @Wasaga_Beach. 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.]
  5. At least 10 pages of it is comments like this one that are complaining about how many pages the thread has. And that's just the ones we haven't removed. Be the change you seek, maybe?
  6. [AC posts removed. The correct place to ask questions about use of FAAB budget and waiver priority is the Assistant Coach forum.]
  7. As stated in the notice at the top, "This thread is for offering suggested waiver wire pickups for week 7 of the 2019 NFL season." It is not meant to be a thread for all things related to waivers, and, in particular, is not for questions about who you should pick up or how much FAAB / waiver priority you should be willing to give up for them. Those are all questions that vary largely based on format, league depth, etc. and thus are Assistant Coach material. If you'd like to discuss further, take it to the Fantasy Feedback forum, or PM us.

  10. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2019 Week 7 This thread is for offering suggested waiver wire pickups for week 7 of the 2019 NFL season. It is not for the following: FAAB questions / discussions — these need to go in the FAAB Questions and Discussion thread Questions / discussions about adds/drops/trades — these belong in the Football Assistant Coach Forum Stories about your fantasy team — post these in the Cool Story, Bro! thread Team defense discussions — use the Team Defense / Special Teams / Streaming Thread Comments that fall into one of these categories or are otherwise not on topic for this thread will be removed. Some discussion of waiver suggestions is allowed, but this is not the place for an extended debate on the merits of any particular player. Take these in-depth discussions over to the outlook threads for the individual player(s) in question.
  11. It's almost certain that Franco and Cesar have played their last games in red pinstripes, so I see no issue with playing time. The team will make a push for Rendon, and Bohm might be ready at some point in 2020, but at worst Kingery has the starting 2B job all to himself.

  14. Rob Arthur, Baseball Prospectus (Registration Required): Moonshot: The Rocket Ball Has Disappeared In October
  15. 6 rounds / 70-80 picks sounds like a lot, once you get into the double digit rounds / triple digit picks, a "go get your guys" mentality sets in. By that time you presumably have 6-7 bats and 3 or 4 arms to anchor your team. With the emerging consensus that power is cheap (MLB unlikely to do anything significant to scale back the happy fun ball in 2020) and steals are precious (fewer players getting them, those that do often have major flaws in their game) I think the market is going to be very bullish on Hampson, particularly with how he finished the season. Just looking at the names in the 10th/11th rounds in the #2EarlyMocks, I see guys like Brandon Woodruff, Trey Mancini, Kyle Tucker, Amed Rosario, and Jean Segura. I totally got burned by Hampson this season and reaped none of the rewards when he finally showed some flashes of brilliance at the end of the season, but if those are the names I have to push him ahead of, that's not going to be a problem. Hampson himself clocks in way back in the 250s -- probably a reflection of the "won't get fooled again" effect you speak of -- but if he has a locked down starting job heading into 2020 (which he didn't heading into 2019) and a just a little bit of success in the spring, then he has all the makings of a guy who can easily jump into the 10th round as people try to find speed with power so they don't have to settle for a Mallex or Gordon type. I know those mocks probably aren't a reflection of what the market will look like in the Spring, but it's the data we have right now. I don't love Hampson's skill set, the Rockies organization can't be trusted with young players, there are very serviceable players and other upside gambles available in the 10th round... these are all true. But 8/15 in just 327 PAs and the upside of playing in Coors is going to get people dreaming on what he could do in a full season. Maybe 10th is aggressive, but if he's there in the 12th and is an everyday player? Sign me up.
  16. Yeah, I took that to mean "in no standard format" -- hence the 30 teamer caveat. Obviously in some leagues people are going to plant their flag on Yordan early, and he's certainly got as much upside as anyone else at the back end of the 1st, so it's not crazy. But even if you like him as a first rounder, just from a game theory perspective, you have to see if you can get him in the 2nd, don't you? Is there another guy in your league who's going to take the plunge that early?
  17. NFL Waiver Wire Thread 2019 Week 6 This thread is for offering suggested waiver wire pickups for week 6 of the 2019 NFL season. It is not for the following: FAAB questions / discussions — these need to go in the FAAB Questions and Discussion thread Questions / discussions about adds/drops/trades — these belong in the Football Assistant Coach Forum Stories about your fantasy team — post these in the Cool Story, Bro! thread Team defense discussions — use the Team Defense / Special Teams / Streaming Thread Comments that fall into one of these categories or are otherwise not on topic for this thread will be removed.

  18. To me, it's more about the lack of track record than the lack of SBs or lack of defensive versatility. If you project out his per-game 2019 production, then he definitely gets a late first round valuation, but as great as he's been, and as legit as it looks, I prefer a high floor approach in the early rounds, and I think a lot of other fantasy players do as well. Plenty of blue chip prospects have had great rookie seasons and failed to replicate it in their second year. The guys you'd have to push out of the first round to make room for him are right there with him in points per game (or player rater ranking) but have generally done it for longer. And let's remember that this discussion started not with "should people draft him in the first?" but "will he have a first round ADP?". The market matters, and the market in early mocks shows that he's a mid third rounder. That's a lot of names to jump over to get to the back end of the first round.

  20. [ Let's take the snark and insults down a couple notches or this one is getting locked again.]
  21. [Posts removed. Completed trades go here.]
  22. Out of The Park and Diamond Mind Baseball each scratch slightly different itches. Now that OOTP has online play I think it covers 90% of what DMB does, but I've only played the former, so I'm really just basing that on what I've read about DMB elsewhere. OOTP is silly cheap now that the season's over, and they usually roll out an end-of-season roster pack on their forums at some point so you're working with something reasonably current.
  23. [AC question/responses removed. If your "worth a pickup?" question requires team roster context, it belongs in the Assistant Coach forum.]
  24. Wins as a category is lame, but QS isn't much better. It's really just crudely double-counting ERA as a counting stat, with an arbitrary inning threshold that fewer and fewer starters hit each season. I've always been a ride or die with 5x5 guy, but with wins being so random and SV and SB being so scarce, this piece makes a compelling case that moving to a 6x6 format with IP as a category would be a step in the right direction. It's not something you'd want to do with noobs who use standard cheat sheets for their drafts, but if you're in a league with people who can roll their own valuations based on the lower impact of SB/SV and the inclusion of IP (along with OBP and SLG) then I think it could work.
