  2. There's a little bit of playing time risk with Logan Allen in the mix, but Plesac is probably the odd man out there, and I do worry that this could be a "year too early" situation in redrafts considering he's never had a heavy innings workload I usually like my late-round SP grabs to be either sky-high upside dart throws or stable workhorse innings eaters, and Civale's neither fish nor fowl -- more of a buy-and-hold investment who could slowly but surely improve his value in the next couple of years. There's also the question of team context. Losing Kluber doesn't affect his value, but losing Puig would, and everything we're hearing says that the team just doesn't care about putting a winning team on the field right now. It sounds like they're not moving Lindor as they were rumored to be considering, but as good as the 1-4 will be, Franmil Reyes, Cesar Hernandez, Jake Bauers, Roberto Perez, and Greg Allen/Delino DeShieleds is a putrid 5-9 for an AL team. Even if he improves his ERA and adds some strikeouts, the wins are unlikely to be there. Finally, the Bauer/Kluber/Clevinger comps for velo improvement are noteworthy, but none of those guys had sub-8 K/9 before their velo jumps. Adding ticks on their fastball and developing their secondaries did turn them into elite options, but they were already getting decent strikeout numbers. From what I saw of Civale last season I think the upside is peak Johnny Cueto, which I'd certainly take, but Cueto was able to make an 8-ish K/9 work because he logged tons of IP. Civale isn't going to do that this season. With all of that said -- everyone going around him in ADP has similar or worse warts, so it's hard to hate the value, particularly in dynasty if you're not going into the season in "win now" mode.

  4. NBA Waiver Wire Thread 2019-2020 Week 14 This thread is for offering suggested waiver wire pickups for week 14 of the 2019-2020 NBA season. It is not for the following: Questions / discussions about adds/drops/trades — these belong in the Basketball Assistant Coach Forum Stories about your fantasy team — post these in the Cool Story, Bro! 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.

  7. Homie was already high on my board but he's moving on up with that.
  8. I'll set up the league on Fantrax, but I don't play H2H so I'm going to pass on participating in this one.
