  1. I'm guessing it's because he's only P eligible in Yahoo, so if your league doesn't have that roster slot active, he won't be available.
  2. I've only seen that he's isolating because of contact with a teammate who tested positive. Have you found more information?
  3. Yes, you need to have drafted/created a team to see the Players section. If you want to look before you draft, just create a temporary league for yourself to get access.
  4. Coming from someone who relies on making my own rankings since I have to autodraft at times, the pre-draft rankings are messed up. The rankings in the pre-draft area are different than the players area, and I have no idea why. The solution is simple - make your own rankings from scratch. If you don't, it will draft based on the rankings in the 'pre-draft' area, but I've never tested it as I would never use Yahoo's rankings when I can make my own. Take the time to do it and you'll be happy you did.
  5. I think the confusion with Yahoo ranks is between the pre-season rank and the 'rank' given in the pre-draft rankings, which are screwy. What I see: Mondesi: pre-season rank 69 draft 'rank' 239 I have to autodraft in some leagues so I spend plenty of time in the pre-draft rankings area, and those rankings have no logic to what they are in the players list.
  6. Does anyone here play in deep, redraft leagues, say 20 teams? I've read people saying that at SP, there's a top tier or two (depending on how you split your tiers, of course) and then there's a large group with many similar starters. I wonder if it's beneficial to grab a starter within the first two rounds (top 40), or by the third at latest? I haven't gone into much depth yet for my draft strategy, but interested to hear from those in deeper leagues how they're approaching SP's this season.
  7. I've seen this as well, if you go to 'draft analysis ' on Yahoo. Seems like an outlier, perhaps caused by limited drafts being conducted so far and someone overreaching him. I'm sure this will change over time.
  8. I don't post much but I do read quite a bit on these forums, and I just want to say that this has been a very useful discussion so far. It's very interesting reading the variety of opinions on players/strategy, and for someone who doesn't follow/analyse/project players as actively as many of you, it's helpful for me at this stage of the offseason. I am aware of the earlier conversation about choosing to do this mock on the forums rather than on fantrax, in order to facilitate more valuable discussions as they progress. As someone who cannot join these mocks, reading the ongoing discussion thread adds so much more value. Thanks, and good luck the rest of the mock.
  9. Thanks, yeah I have thought of that as well, just could be difficult to find adequate streaming options in this deep a league. Thanks, yeah I have no intention of dropping anyone as I need the depth (as mentioned in my reply above). It's simply to use one of my excess RP to pick up one of those starters. Marquez seems to be the favourite, so it comes down to burning the waiver to get him or risk waiting for him to clear. Yep, regardless definitely need a trade! To everyone, I know that at least one other manager is in a similar boat as myself, so I wonder if he'll put in a claim for Marquez. He's #19 so could be a low risk move to claim.
  10. Thanks for the feedback. Yep definitely hoping to make a trade as well - we'll see what can get done. Thanks for the feedback. I'm not dumping any other starters as I still need the depth, so would be dropping an excess RP. Would you suggest a waiver claim (#1) like the above poster or wait until FA?
  11. Hey all,Just drafted (well, unfortunately had to autodraft and pre-ranked) in a one year, 20 team roto league. I would guess that around 100-120 starting pitchers have been drafted. My pitching turned out quite weak so having a look at the scraps on waivers to see if worth grabbing someone who has a chance at sneaky value this season (really all I can ask for at this stage). I have the #1 waiver so it really has to be worth it or save it and hope they go unclaimed. In a vacuum, would you claim (or pick up from FA) one of these guys, and please rank your second best as well. I would appreciate reasons for your selection(s) as I'm not up to speed on them:Tyler AndersonNate KarnsBrandon McCarthyJosh TomlinGerman MarquezBrandon FinneganMartin PerezIt's a 6x6 format - pitching cats are W,K,ERA,WHIP, plus SV and HLD. I've also posted on the league page for possible trades to improve my starting pitching. My current staff:ClevingerPeacock (who's likely relieving for now)GoharaFoltynewiczThat's it. I usually like at least 5 SP to start and since Peacock likely isn't starting, this needs fixing. I was given an extra two RP, one of which I won't need so would drop to make room for a SP. I might drop Caleb Joseph as well since I have Russell Martin but that would be a secondary option.Thanks in advance. If there is any other information I haven't included, just ask.
  12. I wonder if he'll be a good option in holds leagues? Of course depending on whether he's used in those situations or a middle reliever who can go multiple innings. Maybe a few wins and a handful of holds?
  13. Yes, I start with the first tier and decide on the category numbers that I would consider to be good top tier production based on different groups of players. When I'm happy with that as a start, I work my way through the tiers. It's not perfect, I know, but it's not intended to be perfect. It's just an exercise to see if I can manually tier specific groups of players by looking at a combination of category production. I could also check other sites that actually use an algorithm to rank players (e.g. baseball monster) and find cut off points to tier groups of players that way. Rather, I thought I'd give this a go myself since it's October and have some time on my hands. If it's becomes too complicated (already getting that way with all the possible category combinations), then I'll make a decision on how to proceed. I do appreciate your suggestion, though.
