Drop Mikolas for a recently dropped Robbie Ray?
Do you have any other drops?
Drop Kyle Lewis or Manny Margot for Joc?
Help me out with my relief pitching situation:
I have Doval, Bard and Robertson
I would like to pick up Duran and Knebel
Problem is who should I drop? e
ESPN standard H2H
If it's saves only drop Robertson add Knebel. If it's sv/hld add Duran.
I'd hold Doval and Bard
H2H cats 5x5
A: France, Edman, Donovan
B: Ward, Pena, Melendez
I can’t believe I just got Teoscar off waivers. I was 8/10 and didn’t think I had a chance in hell
Jansen or Contreras?
Austin Riley and Luis Severino for Freddie Freeman?
Someone just sent me that plus a lot of prospects like Lodolo, muller, libratore, and touki
Someone just dropped grandal. Should I pick up to replace Sean murphy?
Murphy is having a better fantasy season
Grandal has been terrible this year.
Anyone know how to view your watchlist/ scout team on the Fantrax app?
When looking at players go to filters and then status/team
When I click players it says “ stats, schedule, trends” & if I click the drop box there is no “Status/team”
Are you sure this is available on the app?
Do you have a blue circle in the bottom right?
Ahhh thank you ! Had no idea about that blue button lol
A) Starling Marte, ONeill, Feyereisen
B) Arraez, Hosmer, Martin Perez
Forgive me, but I don't understand your flair. If OPS, QS, and Holds are the added categories, doesn't that make it 6 hitting cats x 7 pitching cats?
I should add that there's no Wins. Excuse me, it's my first time using flair 😅
Wow, that's cool -- the cats in my league are almost identical. We had been standard 5x5 for the previous 15+ years, just this season we expanded it to 6x6 with OPS added on hitting and Holds added on pitching. (So the only difference is we have Wins and your league has QS.)
I had to think about your question for a while. I think I'd want side A -- so hard to pass up having Starling Marte. But Martin Perez has been outstanding this year, so if a team needs starting pitching help, especially with ERA and WHIP, I could totally see them going with side B.
We transitioned to QS a few years back and it's been a change that's been wholly for the better - less luck with Win situations and more reliance on stalwarts that can go the distance
Thanks for the input! I take that if it took some time to consider I can atleast imagine its somewhat fair. Just don't know what to make of Perez to this point, as amazing as he's been.
12 team redraft. I have a free roster spot and want to use it on a pitcher. QS league, only 50 moves per season. should I pick up hunter greene or aaron ashby?
I’d rather have Ashby. Better team in a friendlier ballpark.
C. Walker or Joc as a bench/útil bat to alternate with Gorman?
Walker and Gorman. Joc has hot streaks (like he's been on right now for the past week+) but when he's cold he's ice cold. That may not matter because you're in a roto format instead of H2H, but I still believe Walker will be better overall season-long than Joc will be; although I admit that may be the minority opinion in here.
I'd drop Gorman and keep Walker and Joc
Walker and Joc > Gorman
Just got Renfroe off waivers somehow 😁
Congrats! Honestly I really hadn't paid him any attention because he was taken in the draft by another team in my league, but I just took a look at his stats and it looks like he's been having a good season thus far. He's ranked by Yahoo as the #108 player overall in my flair league.
more like he hit a hot streak right before he injured himself.
5 IL slots... 10 injured players. Can't field a full team the rest of the week. Fucking Bryant.
I have a league like this & unfortunately we only have 3 IL spots. I currently have 9 guys out right now. Hoping a few come back next week
Every passing season that goes by it becomes clear to me that you can never have enough IL spots & I’ll never complain about extra IL spots. It’s something every league should consider
Yeah I'm going to suggest adding a few. It's no fun to feel like you either drop obviously good players or lose slots for god knows how long.
He was great when he was on the Cubs. Not sure what happened...
Why is jt realmuto still on the can’t drop list
FYI, he's not on Yahoo's Can't Cut List.
Be nice to JT, he bopped a dinger tonight.
He hasn’t done shit the whole rest of the season
He's rank 6 at catcher so far, catchers just suck dawg.
11th in my league and it’s only 8 man
My team's batting tonight:
12 runs, 2 HR, 7 RBI, 0 steals, .389 AVG, and 1.061 OPS. Numbers would have been higher but Alonso and JRod didn't have games today. :)
After starting off the season with virtually nonexistent hitting the first 5 weeks, my team's offense has finally woken up last week and this week. Feels good, man.
I'm in 10th place (out of 10 teams). So it's going to take a small miracle for my team to dig itself out of the hole over the next 12 weeks to make the fantasy playoffs (top 6 out of the 10 teams make the playoffs).
Trevor Rogers was dropped in my league and he already cleared waivers, should I drop any of my pitchers to grab him?
S.Ohtani, M.Kopech, F.Montas, L.Castillo, L.Severino, M.Kelly, P.Sandoval. Luzardo (IL), deGrom (IL)
I'd drop Merrill Kelly for Trevor Rogers. I own them both and I'm hoping Rogers improves.
I know people say “it’s still early” but at what point does Marcus Semien become droppable? First week of June?
Ive dropped him in 10 teamers
I would hold on to him until the weather fully heats up. I would say if he hasn't shown clear signs of improvement by July you move on. 100% bench for now.
I know it sucks to draft a bust so early (feeling that way myself with 3 Bryant shares) but it does happen sometimes, and sometimes its better to move on than just have a dead roster spot. Really depends on how well your team is doing despite him I suppose.
When the Rangers start batting him 7th or something. I'm sitting him when I can, but that's pretty much when I'll start actually seriously considering it.
It does happen sometimes (Cody Bellinger) but it's incredibly rare for someone to go from best season of their career to absolutely cooked. Anyone I pick in the 6th round+ I'm prepared to just ride it out for the year with them. Treat him like he's the best prospect in the minors and you are stashing for a callup.
Belli has been decent the past month, not MVP but not cooked.
Was talking about last year when he just stayed bad
Problem is I would rather stash Royce Lewis or Pasquantino though, right?
I wouldn't want to, I'd much rather have a player that has proven skills in the majors then bet on the potential for someone else to have a season that looks like good Semien. Prospects come up and fall flat on their face all the time, especially lately.
you don't have a bench spot for him to chill while you spot start other guys?
No, IL spots right now: Lowe, Flaherty and Heaney. Have Robert on bench with Covid. Worst position players: Yepez, mountcastle, Ryan McMahon, jean segura.
I'd drop heaney, switch Robert to IL and then pick up another. not a fan of heaney due to his volatility but if the WW is thin just hold
Trevor Story was essentially my opponent's entire batting output tonight.
* this week
You're not kidding... I just looked, and Story accounts for almost 1/3 of his Runs, exactly 2/3 of his HRs, nearly 1/2 of his RBIs, and 100% of his Steals.
Granted, that's only because the rest of his hitters are having an awful week, but still that's insane.
Bailey Ober vs Royals or Taillon vs Rays ? stream
My team with Varsho, Bell, Polanco, Bogaerts, Machado, Acuña, Tucker, Schwarber, Witt Jr and Gorman is currently with 4 points out of 12 in RBI in my roto league.
I went bat heavy. I just... I don't know.
How are you doing in Runs and Home Runs, by the way?
10 points in Runs (3rd), 7 in HR (6th)
Sorry, 4 points out of 12... does that mean you're in 9th place in terms of RBIs? That makes zero sense with your lineup (which I guess was the point of your post).
Haha that's exactly it. Sorry for the bad phrasing. ESL here.
No worries. It wasn't your English, I was just clarifying whether the 4 points meant you were in 4th place or 9th place. I've never played the roto format before...
A: Morton and Mancini
H2H points redraft . Little worried about Buxton maybe playing through an injury. I would be getting buxton
I actually prefer the A side here, but I'm out on Buxton. Too much injury risk.
Not a point player, but I would think in points you need the guys that are going to stay on the field. Mancini's pretty consistent and I don't believe Morton's washed yet.
Any injury concern with Buxton for you? I heard he’s playing through a knee injury
There's always injury concern for Buxton for me. If he's out there playing, I have to believe the team believes he is healthy enough to be out there. His upside is just worth too much for me. But it's going to be frustrating at times.
This is my staff. Do you think I have the depth?
SP: Max Scherzer, Zack wheeler, Lucas Giolito, Carlos Rodon, Joe Ryan, George Kirby, Cal Quantrill, Alex Cobb, Brady Singer, Charlie Morton, Stephen Strasburg, Andrew Heaney, Zack Greinke , Aaron Ashby
My format is H2H points redraft
That's 14 starting pitchers. Do you have a games started and/or innings pitched limit?
(For comparison, most teams in my league have 7 or 8 starting pitchers, but we have a limit of 1450 innings and it's also a 16-team league, so having more starting pitchers really isn't feasible with the decent ones spread over so many teams. Or maybe that's just the difference between H2H points and season-long points.)
I've never done points tbh so you might want to get someone else's opinion on that but seems like a solid staff especially once Scherzer's back.
Rasmussen or Martin Perez?
I'm a Perez believer this season.
Rasmussen ROS for sure. I have Martin and will ride it out as long as I can.
That home park is a HR haven though
Rodon potential cy young winner. Alvarez potential mvp. Grandal highest ceiling of all catchers
Get side very easily, especially in shallow league.
Yordan blows it out of the water for get side
Get. Not close.
Proving a point , please just answer the question no need for the sass
Drop Winker for Kole Calhoun? This guy just keeps mashing.
kole Calhoun until winker heats up.
someone dropped Trevor Rogers..
should i drop one of my 2 worst SP's, Ranger Suarez or Ian Anderson for him?
Yeah trevor Rogers sucks but those 2 are even worse lol
absolutely, drop both for him
A if you need pitching
Are you guys holding onto Hunter Greene?
Today it sounded like both pitchers struggled due to the rain before they delayed it. So not the best game to criticize
I have to, because I have like 17 pitchers out right now, but I do still have some faith in him, justified or not. There’s genius in that arm.
8 team H2H redraft
A: JD Martinez, Trevor Story
B: Taylor Ward, Jeremy Peña, Kyle Wright
A everyday and twice on Sunday
There must be something very obvious I’m missing, but I don’t understand why Josh Bell went 1/3 tonight yet shows an OBP of .250 in ESPN… (?)
Yeah sac fly bottom 7th.
Probably had a sac fly
A - Hader / Joc
B - Acuna / Ray / Kopech
I'd take that any day in my saves only league
in a vacuum I wouldn't really consider that offer for any of the individual pitchers you mentioned.
Why are you asking this? Because you want someone to condone you sending that offer?
B and it's not close
B: Ian Anderson
H2H points redraft. I would get B and I have adley
Is Anderson kind of a bum? I mean if I have adley might as well get him right?
Grandal has also been a bum this year. Might as well do the trade if you have Adley
Is it safe to bet on adley ROS?
I’d rank Grandal and Adley very close to each other in a redraft league
Any SP/RPs in fairly deep leagues you fine people are streaming for innings Friday?
Gleyber Torres or Josh Naylor?
I prefer SS over OF but if Naylor is a better choice, I wouldn't mind.
Thanks for the comment:)
My Barlow duo got me 2 saves tonight.
You love to see it, folks.
Drop Moncada for Pasquantino in a roto league with OPS?
Mahle and Wainright for Joe Ryan?
Joe Ryan side wins
A: Bassitt, McCullers
Anyone still hanging on to Josiah Gray or was I the only idiot who went for a 2-start this week starting with LAD?
i’m holding all year in a dynasty. pretty nasty in the minors.
Yeah I can absolutely see holding in dynasty. He hasn't clicked yet since his debut in the bigs so it's tough in redraft, but my pitching is decent enough where I can hang on for a bit longer.
He just got dropped in my league tonight.
I dropped him before his LAD disaster, but I’m still keeping an eye on him
I am solely because I don’t see anyone on the ww I’m intrigued in. He’s a matchup dependent spot starter at best rn. Since I’m in a 14T with a deep staff I’ll hang onto him longer and see if anything clicks.
Let’s hear some of your offers
i'm seeing a trend here... always 2 (or 3) for one player (best player in the deal). i almost never take those deals since the cost of me cutting someone isnt properly represented. you deserve some counter offers at least though.
mookie looking like an MVP right now
U got legit beef.
Thank you sir. I’ve played fantasy for 23 years now including football from the late 90’s. Trading is the best part for me so I hate this league. It’s a $200 per team league and I feel like half these teams are so clueless I can’t stand it !
I just want to free my bench up and play waivers but my team is stacked and I’m in second so whatever I’ll just beat them all season
10 team H2H 7x7 Cat league redraft (With K’s, OBP, HLD and QS as the extra categories)
Rank these 4 SP’s ROS
Eflin, Gibson, Montgomery, Jon Gray
Pickup Calhoun, Pham, or Votto?
Pham only for SB potential but otherwise votto.
I’d be highest on Votto personally, but he typically doesn’t heat up until June-ish.
Drop Roansy, Cobb, Javier, or Holmes?
H2H cats (QS and SV). I've gotten by so far in saves with just Hader and E. Diaz
Roansy for sure
I’d try and trade one of those guys before I drop them. If I had to drop on it’d prob be roansy since he’s just up to the bigs with spotty command.
Roansy also seems the least likely to make it through 6 innings consistently
Guy in my keeper league had Belli and Yeli in 2019 and I was wondering how tf anyone was gonna compete against that.
Baseball is a weird sport.
That was 4 years ago now...
People don't forget.
That's some interesting math
2019 season, 2020 season, 2021 season, 2022 season. 4 years.
Drop Lourdes Gurriel for Patrick Wisdom or Frank Schwindel?
My offense needs a boost
Wisdom is the more predictable hitter right now: low average, real power. Jury is still out on exactly what Schwindel is, but if he gets back to his form from end of last year, be ready to pounce
Somehow I drafted the two worst offenses ever in both my leagues it’s insane
Flair is varsho, olson, ketel, devers, witt, Hoskins, tucker, JRod, casty, teo, ward, tellez and I’m bottom 2 in like everything somehow
Hurts when guys like Olson, ketel, Teo are higher picks not doing shit so far. Need those guys to wake up.
Yeah it’s killing me im getting shit housed every week basically
Drop tellez. Ride hot bats.
Grandal or Melendez ROS?
Wondering the same thing here. As well as heim.
Why is ohtani dtd?
It's 10 now
How close is Flaherty to coming back?
1 month or so, sometime in July
thoughts on aaron ashby ROS? is he more than just a streamer? I want to pick him up but it’s a QS league and i’m not sure how deep into games he’ll go. also unsure how long he’s staying in the rotation
Ride the wave, if he pitches well they’ll figure out how to keep him in the rotation. He may have issues in a QS league going the distance, but he’s got big K upside and at this point you take that if it’s on the WW.
is his upside higher than hunter greene? my era is a mess regardless, but it’s basically just him and ashby worth taking on my wire and I only get 50 moves per season
Greene has control issues and gives up a lot of homers which is a bad combo. So for this season I’d rather ride with Ashby. Even if he’s not in the rotation at times they bring him in for long relief on a pretty set schedule. He’s got nasty stuff and his peripherals look good.
Aroldis Chapman worth snagging off the waiver and putting in IL?
Sure why not?
Luzardo a strong hold in redraft 10tm QS cats?? Getting torched by injuries...
