  1. Jon Lester 2018 Outlook

    In terms of Lester in 2018- I like where he's going in drafts right now. I've been taking him as an SP2 and SP3 at times. At around ADP105 he's reliable and shouldn't hurt you anywhere. Out of the starters being drafted around here; Tanaka, Hendricks, Hill, McCullers, Berrios, Arrieta, Price- he feels the safest. I think he's a better play in roto over h2h.

    Lester is a funny player to own. The poster above probably held onto some of those 8 run 1 inning disasters Lester had a few times last season. He is so frustrating to watch at times, because when he struggles, he STRUGGLES and he can never get out of his own way. He has this thing with first innings he just can't get out of sometimes. I honestly don't know what it is but something in his mental make up is definitely off. Then again, he's had plenty of dominant performances to make up for this, so it's hard to call him overrated trash.

    Only issue with OBP is that it misses the slugging component of players getting doubles and triples. In OBP, a double or triple is as valuable as a walk or single. For me, it's not the worst thing in the world.
  4. For Yahoo, draft timer is controlled by commissioner. There are 15 second intervals you can choose from between 15 seconds to 2 minutes. Mock drafts are set to 30 seconds.

    Closers simply do not give you more value "for sure". In Saves + Holds leagues, they are an overpriced commodity using default rankings.

    In hindsight, I think you're probably right.

    Did my first mock last night, picked 9th and if I were to end up with these first 6 picks in an actual draft.. wow I would be extremely happy. 9 Max Scherzer 16 Aaron Judge 33 Carlos Carrasco 40 Edwin Encarnacion 57 Justin Turner 64 Alex Bregman

    Really no reason to build a strategy to counter a one week match up. Depending on the categories, (I am of the opinion pitching categories should strictly be WHIP, ERA, K, S+H and QS) you will win 2/5 with K and QS, and you'll need to get clever and try and squeak out a tie in the remaining 3 categories possibly using a few WW pick ups to supplement the opponents slew of relievers.

    I am in a saves+holds league as well and drafted Miller(89)/Allen(139) just like you stated. It worked out VERY nicely. I also drafted SP/RP Raisel Iglesias at 182 and Devenski at 272. I absolutely agree with this strategy and often times favor setup guys over closers. I ended up winning this daily roto 12 team by a total landslide (22.5pt lead). Drafting Judge at 327 helped too
  10. ESPN's functionality and feature set is way outdated. It was acceptable close to 6-7 years ago. Yahoo is far and away the more robust platform- and not only that but their mobile app is light years ahead of where ESPN's is. Bottom line is even though it may not seem like it sometimes, Yahoo puts a lot more effort into their fantasy platform than ESPN ever will.

    Kinda reminds me of an AL Carlos Martinez in terms of fantasy profile. Cmart was going 5th last year too. I'll probably target CC in a similar spot, probably earlier if there's a run on pitching.

    Easily has become my favorite player in all of the league since his arrival in Chicago. The total package and the type of player you want your kids to idolize. 5 stars across the board in just about any category you can come up with. Tough as nails- normally leads the league (or near the top) in HBP. Call him Mr. Everything. He is at the center of this HoF core. For fantasy- there is no doubt that I am taking him late first round. And at this point, with all the volatility that exists at the top- he may be the safest play to maximize your value when picking in the 1st round.

    One of the most electrifying players to watch in all of baseball.

    His lead off stats are just ridiculous. Roberts always struck me as the type of coach to ignore these things and do things "his way".

    I'll take it. Need another Buccos win for the Cubbies to jump into first.
