I'm really torn on this, please help

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I know some people have mentioned a mock. Anyone have interest in a 'NFBC style' league on Fantrax?

- 50 round slow draft, 8 hours per pick
- No trading or WW
- 2C, 1B, 2B, SS, 3B, CI, MI, 5OF, 9P lineups
- Set lineups twice a week (Mon-Thur, Fri-Sun)
- 5x5 standard roto, although we could use OBP/QS instead of AVG/W

Could start it whenever, draft usually takes 2-3 weeks if everyone is fairly active. Was thinking starting in mid-January and just doing it for $50 or something cheap

If enough people want in maybe, setting lineups twice a week seems bleh

I'd be in for a mock soon though

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Potential Keepers selection. Pick 5 (at least 1 hitter and 1 pitcher). Long term, they can be kept around +1 rd or +3 in future years.

6x6 league with OBP (not avg), and TB, and QS

Story 13
Hendricks 14
Franco 26
blackmon 22
Stanton 1
Urias 23
springer 10
Lester 9
Machado 5

Currently slotting in Machado, Blackmon, Story, and Urias. Franco/Springer? Lester at 9 is nice too?

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Bah, only just realized this thread was around.

Grunching a bit, if you guys want to mock, we could always arrange to mass enter a draft on couchmanagers.com. Regardless of where/format/etc, I'm interested.

Surprised Urias is a snap keeper for you, guess I'm just hesitant on how useful he'll be

That's fair, I guess I'm just imagining that at rd 23 he's a good pick. Lester at 9 or Hendricks at 14 are solid value, but within +/- ~3 rds of their ADP I'd imagine, Urias is probably ~7/8 rds of value, no?

Happily swayed though to keep one of the other guys

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I'm not keeping Stanton or Franco. It's prob more between Lester and Hendricks for me.

Machado/Story/Blackmon/Springer prob my first 4.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Hendricks over Urias IMO, the only negative on Kyle is his Ks, but he is still projected to K 20-25 more than Urias.

Urias ceiling just to low at this point, his innings just won't be where you want them to be.

pretty much this, I expect them to baby him, and no guarantee he even starts in majors (didn't look great last year). If you were rebuilding, for sure a good value (and can likely trade him to someone rebuilding), but you should be wanting to win now imo

edit: Could see Lester or Hendricks, havent compared too much or looked at values too much so don't know

My current keepers (can keep 8) with prices and years left are below, keepers can be 4 years total and go from $1, $2, $9, $10 and 10% inflation each year for every keeper over $10.

Donaldson $1, 1 year
Altuve $12, 2 years
Machado $9, 3 years
Arenado $9, 2 years
Pollock $12, 3 years
Springer $9, 2 years
JD mart $1, 2 years
Carrasco $1, 2 years

I give: Donaldson and Machado
I get: Betts at $1 for 2 years

My other players I can keep for $1 for 4 years on the roster to replace Donaldson are:

Wilson contreras
Jose Pereza
Aaron judge
Sean manaea

On second thought probably going to decline because I initially though the keeper years remaining for Machado and betts were flipped. But still interested to hear peoples thoughts as I think betts is going off again and Donaldson will fall off pretty hard this year with no EE and Bautista
Same league keeper question:

I give Donaldson and Machado

I get Betts ($1 for 2 years) and polanco ($1 for 2 years)

Still leaning no in this but I really think betts will finish #1 this year. Thoughts?

Don't think you can do it. You're trading 2 first round picks (like 5/10) for a #2 pick and a guy getting drafted in the 60's.

Blackmon 12th = never reading that guy.

Also hate the Marte over Miggy/Votto pick. Understand the premium being put on SBs, but think it's cancelled out by the 1B drop off after the first 30 picks.

While I disagree too, he's going 14th in NFBC ADP right now, so he's not really that far off.

Nice of the guy in the 9-hole to donk up the whole draft unless the draft board is just screwed up. Andrew Miller #16 overall followed by the immortal Zach Duke in the 3rd round.
