  1. Full PPR, 12 team league. Currently 1-1. I gave: AJ Green, Leonard Fournette, Joshua Kelley I received: Odell Beckham Jr., Justin Robinson How'd I do? My current team: QB: Matt Ryan WRs: Micheal Thomas, Davante Adams RB: Justin Robinson, Mark Ingram Felx: Juju Smith-Schuster Bench: OBJ, James White, Alexander Mattison, Laviska Shenault Jr., Adrian Peterson, Chase Edmonds, Austin Hooper. The injuries to MT and Davante have hurt me and I hate drafting RBs high to begin with. I feel I upgraded from Fournette and AJ Green, which is why I did the deal, but am not entirely sure. Feedback is appreciated!
  2. I will lose this week entirely because the Patriots did not report James White being Out before 1pm games started. He will remain in my active lineup instead of Leonard Fournette, who had 27.4 points. (I am venting under the assumption that the Patriots waited for the last minute to report this info, not White’s situation itself)
  3. It’s not like we’re going blind on ADP here. Fantrax may not be the ultimate resource but it’s ADP is better than nothing and it appears Yahoo and Fantrax’ ADPs we’re close to my selection.
  4. I made both of these picks. I think I got solid value for Hiura in that he is an elite hitter who has recently developed legitimate power into his game. I think he'll be a top 25 player for years to come, although with MI in particularly deep this year, this selection could have been improved. He hit .303 with 19 bombs and 9 SB in half a season's AB. If you extrapolate it to a full season, which has it's obvious flaws, you get a line very similar to Javier Baez' 2018 near MVP season. With Robles, there are few players that provide plus values in SB but don't have negatives everywhere else. The tools are real, and with appropriate rounding, he went 15/30 last season. The OPS sucks, but he's 22 years old. I've followed Robles for years in the minors so I have a bit of bias, but I believe in the hit tool and think with the current scarcity in SB Robles is a bargain
  5. Max Acosta is quickly becoming one of the best prospects in the 2019 J2 class. The Athletic has an incredible article on Acosta for subscribers and Baseball America is very bullish on their writeup on him for their Rangers Top 10 too. He was not a top prospect in the class, signing for only $1.6 million, but he's both improved physically and has an incredible work ethic. Some snippets (first three from The Athletic, second from Prospects1500, third from Baseball America, bolded portions are for emphasis): There's a lot to dream on with Acosta. If he crushes it in the Arizona league next season, as a 17 year old, he'll likely be a top 25 prospect this time next year. He would have a very similar resume to what Marco Luciano has now and has the potential to be a very quick riser.
  6. Trout v Acuna seemed like a really tough choice but after giving it a closer look, Trout for sure was the top option for me. Acuna, naturally, has a lot of hype surrounding his near 40/40 season but I wanted to put that in the backseat and think if he's going to achieve that next season. The basepaths are a bulk of Acuna's value, and nowadays, teams really want to make sure their superstars don't get hurt. It wasn't too long ago when Trout himself was a 40/40 threat but then all of a sudden he stopped running. Stealing bags leads to injuries and no team will put their star into that risk if they can avoid that. Given that Trout's value comes from categories that aren't SBs, giving him a higher floor, selecting him made more sense. If Acuna steals 40, he will likely be better than Trout next season. If he steals 20, Trout will be the better option. I'd rather take Trout now and build around SB-based players later.
  7. I'm now in, the league invitation blended in with other Fantrax emails.
