Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

in a vacuum, I'd rather have Seager than Turner.
I also wouldn't worry about steals in 6x6 at all, especially with Altuve, Betts, and Blackmon already on the roster. I mean you probably project for top ~4 in steals with just those three guys and any random roster fillers.

That said, your team is stacked so pretty hard to mess anything up too bad.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

Interesting.

I really liked the extra year with Turner and honestly Seagers counting stats are really not impressive at all, obviously could change next season but he's only on pace for something like 82/22/76/2/300/380. I'd much rather have the super valuable guy who can swipe 70 bags when power is so easy to get now

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I'm probably on the wrong side of this, but I just think steals are less valuable and homers are more valuable in this environment. I just don't think you can have a hole in your lineup that doesn't get 12-15 homeruns. It's something I'm going to think about going into next year, but I don't think many leagues are being won with Billy Hamilton, Dee Gordon, Trea Turner, Cameron Maybin, Rajai Davis, Delino DeShields, or Jarod Dyson on the team.

You can probably have a 22sb guy be your top guy and add enough guys with 7-12 to be competitive.

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

That's an interesting take, and makes a lot of sense. That's why having those guys that will get both (goldy/betts/Blackmon/Altuve) are so valuable

Re: 2017 Fantasy Baseball Thread

I've got 110 points (12-man 5x5 roto) which obviously puts me in first, while second place oscillates between 102-103. Untouchable in R, HR, ERA, WHIP, W, and only at slight risk of losing a point in 3 categories (most of which I restructured my team to be elite in before the trade deadline).

Trying to make it so that if second place wants to beat me, he's gonna have to come up to 110 too. Which is a tall damn order.

Merrifield has been an elite 2B, and without much hype. #4 in steals while contributing positively in all five categories. I'll be interested to see where he goes next year. Feels like a 4th rounder but these days it's hard to tell.

Sheesh, just saw he's 21 on the player rater, in the same range as Jose Ramirez, Trout, Arenado, Mook, Rizzo, Votto.

And it's mainly due to him running plus a massive drop in K-rate (13.9% from 21.7%). His BABIP is actually 50 points lower than last year (.310 this year).

Tommy Pham seems a little more smoke and mirrors but also unhyped. Probably a solid draft for whatever round he goes in.

Chris Taylor is subject to a lot of BABIP rungood, but has put up an amazing season.

Out of the three Merrifield seems by far the most authentic, but if you just look at stats I wouldn't be surprised if all three go near the same round next year, which I think you're right could be ~8. Merrifield is the only one I'm confident will deliver value way above that though.
