  1. It feels wrong to say, but I wouldn't want anything to do with Marte for this season now.
  2. I've made three so far in my standard 5x5 12 team H2H categories redraft: Stanton, Judge, and Luzardo for Bellinger, McCutchen, and Stripling Grandal and Bellinger for Yelich Olson, Reyes, and Suarez for Betts and Choo Had I known that I was going to be able to get Betts later on, I likely would've stuck with Bellinger and kept Grandal. I just wanted to own Yelich, quite frankly. I'm all about those 2-for-1 and 3-for-1 trades, up until the point that I feel like my roster can't handle it anymore, where I receive the best player in the deal and one of those upper echelon players. If it works out, great. If it doesn't, then I have some of the best trade chips in the game to hopefully go out and get what I need in order to win. All in all I gave up a lot of good talent, but I didn't have to part with any of my first four picks (Turner, Ramirez, Verlander, and Clevinger) so I'm happy about that.
  3. I guess that I should've left open the latest trade offer that I received from the Bell owner, just in case.
  4. It doesn't work that way with trades, though - at least that's what the dude at Yahoo told me when I emailed them about it. According to him, it didn't make a difference that the offer was accepted while Adams in my IR spot was still listed as being out, nor the fact that the trade was opening up a spot for him on my bench regardless. I had to drop someone from my existing (full) roster in order to take Adams off of the IR first, and then that would allow for the trade to process as normal. Otherwise, the system would've canceled it. I know that that's not what you guys are talking about here, but it's just something to keep in mind for the future if you ever run into the same issue that I did so that you can be prepared for it.
  5. “I just want to see him practice.” Well, let him participate then.
  6. Don't you guys know that a starter's talent automatically transfers over to the backup whenever they go down? That's like Fantasy 101. There's a reason why so many people say “if you drafted this guy, then you need to own his backup.” It's because backups are automatically guaranteed to put up the same level of production as the previous starter. That's just how it all works.
  7. How many kickers this year would you say are absolute must own? Are there any that are a necessity to hold onto through their bye week? In my ten team league, what if they all were drafted before I felt comfortable taking them, or are otherwise owned by different teams? Then what do I do - make a trade for one? Or don't you think that it would be smarter at that point, especially if I had a bench that is full of assets that I'd rather not outright drop if it isn't required, just to stream them? And if I'm streaming, what's the hurry to pick one up that I know is going to be there if and when I need them?
  8. I've been doing the same thing and I'm undefeated thus far. That obviously doesn't mean that just because it's been working for me that it's the way for everyone else to go as well, but I'm not sure why that this is being called the “worst advice ever” by someone when kickers are mostly interchangeable aside from maybe a couple of them who are consistently solid with points, while the rest are basically just crapshoots from week to week. It's pretty simple to plan ahead and make sure to have a decent enough free agent option on standby from any of the remaining games, ready to be picked up and started after the noon slate is over with and you have a better idea of how your matchup is coming along.
  9. With a post as dramatic as this I'm curious to see what the DJ owner's team in your league looks like. I need to know if he is or should be sweating bullets. As a DJ owner myself, I can tell you that I'm not, but everyone's situation is different, obviously.
  10. I let it be known this morning to the other owners in my league that I will be fielding offers for him. I can't imagine receiving anything that would be good enough for me to actually trade him, though. If you don't mind telling, what are people offering you?
  11. The trade pretty much boils down to Evans for Gordon and Hopkins, and there's just no way that the other owner accepts something like that. I mean, you can try it because it never hurts to send something and cross your fingers, but just be prepared for the offer to get declined.
  12. 10 team, half-PPR league. A few days ago I got Melvin Gordon and Fournette for Ingram. It's a shame that I'm more than likely going to lose to the guy that I did the trade with this week barring some sort of devine intervention, but the dude has to really be kicking himself right now.

  14. I really hope that you kept Shady, man. I know that the situation in Kansas City is muddy right now, but in this instance it isn't such a bad thing seeing as in LA it isn't that way anymore. Especially considering that either one would just be considered as depth for your team, I'd rather have the guy that has a decent shot at being the lead back on the best offense in the league over someone who is going to take a backseat to an established stud like Gordon. If you really want to get rid of McCoy, chances are good that someone in your league would pay you more for him than Ekeler right now just based on his huge potential.
  15. It makes all the sense in the world to offer a trade like that on your end, but absolutely none to accept it on theirs.
  16. Him getting prepared for tomorrow night's game.
