  5. The knock on him being a "headcase" hasn't affected his approach or results during what has basically been a pretty stellar career where he has consistently delivered (200+ IP and 190+ K's in four of the last five years, lifetime 3.21 ERA & 1.08 WHIP). His velocity has been trending down, to around 89.5 last year, which is my main concern with him especially now that he's 35. He is a savvy pitcher though, so he has compensated for that by working in secondary pitches more effectively. With Greinke, you always get the reliability factor but due to the velo dropping, it feels like there

  6. Figured I'd start a new thread for Heaney's 2019 season. Finished at 9-10, 4.15 ERA, 3.99 FIP, 3.68 xFIP. Strikeouts and walks were pretty good at 9.00 and 2.25 but he was hurt by a 1.35 HR/9. His 4.15 ERA is not that great but his xFIP ranked 20th out of 57 qualified starters. Ahead of Luis Castillo (21st), behind Miles Mikolas (19th). Al Melchior posted the following on Rotographs: Heaney is a former 1st round pick (9th overall in 2012). 2018 was his first full season at age 27. Expecting a decent ERA (3.6 - 3.8) with 10+ wins and a good amount of strikeouts thi

  7. My body is ready again. Had a 2.87 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with his new Braves team. He had another good second half after a rough first. I think the defensive improvement on his team makes him a much more attractive option than he was in Bal, let alone the easier division. Should be an interesting 2019. Probably an SP5 to start

  9. if you don't know who Nathaniel Lowe is - or what he is capable of - I promise - P R O M I S E - you will be familiar with his work by years end. 1B prospects are kind of gross, generally speaking. But this guy can absolutely mash. He's already a Major League hitter, just in the wrong league. Alonso has the helium, Lowe has the superior bat and the superior ceiling. He's a hitter with power. great approach. sneaky athleticism. big body. I love love love Nathaniel Lowe. Love him.

  10. For me, I would take him 5th behind Trout, Mookie, Acuna, and JoRam. That's both standard and dynasty. Each person is different, but my guess is he climbs easily into the top 10. In that park with that lineup and no league adjustment, it's not hard to figure Harper has a baseline of .275/100/30/100 with sky high upside.

  11. I really like Carlos Santana in OBP leagues especially with the drop off in 1B after the top guys. Josh Bell is another one I like at 1B. Eaton in the OF could be a steal if he can stay healthy and had a good track record with his OBP. Winker has been talked about in a lot of sleeper threads and could lead off for CIN. Catcher is a wasteland but in OBP leagues there are a few guys I wanted late that actually help a bit in OBP and provide what most catchers do it now other categories. Posey (injury risk but he's going very late), Cervelli, Chirinos and Narvaez. Those are just a few of the names

  12. Dlo is so good now that his thread was not bumped for a 40 pt 7 assist game with 6 3s and 2 steals. And scoring 14 pts in the final 3 min of the game and the nets final 12 points to seal the W. Ice in his veins baby. Watch out for Dinwiddie though

  16. If the season had ended at end of July/early August he would have had a thread by now. He predictably lost some steam the last couple months (he'd never pitched more than 105 innings in a season) although he did have a couple solid outings the last couple months on his way to 180 IP. In a 12-team league his K-upside (0.9 K/IP career) makes him a legit SP4-5. He's not going to get a lot of wins (only 9 last year in 30 starts) but he showed well in his first legit shot last year with decent (non-damaging) ratios to go w/those Ks. Considering his age, it's an open question whether we'

  17. I'm actually shocked at the lack of talk for Lourdes Gurriel Jr. he struggled first call up, then on 2nd call up lit the world on fire before freak injury. Hit 290 with an 803 OPS in the 2H... and yet no one cares.

  18. The formula is based on snap counts in the regular and post season as well as how well the player grades, then how much they sign for in the regular season. Rams got 2 3rds because they lost two of the top 5 FAs by money in Johnson and Watkins. They could have lost one if Suh wasn't cut by the Dolphins and was an UNRESTRICTED free agent. Instead, he was and he doesn't count against the formula. The reason good teams get more compensation picks is because they are better able to let aging talent walk. It's not their fault other teams are paying those FAs top 5 salaries in FA. I mean, eve

  19. Dunno if he's been mentioned yet, but Domingo Santana is being slept on, 2 years ago he went 30/15/.280ish then lost his playing time last year. New team, new opportunity. Only 30% owned in yahoo leagues.

  21. I mentioned him on a different post, but it applies here: Reynaldo Lopez. I think he could be a late-round sleeper, rounds 18-20. The kid throws hard (94-96), has four pitches, including a developing slider. He delivered in 9 of his final 11 starts last year, including two starts where he went 7 IP and allowed just one run against the Yankees (twice). He has the prospect pedigree and will be entering his third year. Certainly trending in the right direction. He doesn't have the strikeout rate one would expect from a guy who throws that hard, but I suspect it will bump up. I think Glasnow, Pive

  25. Interesting. I've been out of fantasy baseball a couple years for a bunch of reasons, mostly personal. Now that I'm back, I've been checking in on all the guys I used to own. He was one of them. In 2015 he had a HR every 28 AB. (421 AB, 15 HR) Came in 3rd for RoY. In 2016 he had a HR every 15 AB. (318 AB, 21 HR) Now hold on before you guys go crazy on me, I'm aware of the issues with the data. Yes, I acknowledge that was basically half a season of AB. Who knows if he could have sustained that pace if they gave him double the AB. I know he is older now. BU

  28. Top 10 compensatory picks this decade. 10- Marlon Mack he did pretty ok last year 9- Ricky Wagner just signed an almost 50m deal as a lineman in 2017 8- Quincy Enunwa, has talent just can't stay healthy 7- Kurt Coleman, season high of 7 picks as a 7th round compensatory pick 6- Blake Martinez, pretty good LB 5- Malcolm Smith, Super Bowl MVP 4- James Conner 3- Kyle Juszczyk, probably the top FB in the NFL 2- Dak Prescott 1- Mike Daniels DT and one of the best NFL run stoppers

  29. Olson/Abreu/Aguilar/Muncy I'm high on Olson, meh on Abreu, Aguilar and Muncy are very close and I give the edge to Aguilar due to likely playing time. Clevinger/Tailon/Flaherty/Wheeler/Berrios Clevinger clear winner IMO with tailon/Flaherty basically tied second and third just depending on how high you think Flaherty will go this year. I don't believe in the 2-pitch pitcher Berrios.

  31. Fantastic changeup, gets a ton of swing and misses. Like a lot of lefties when you got an average to below average fastball your upside is pretty capped. There’s some minor hope for a small step forward but he’s probably a high 3 guy at best. Which is a solid back end fantasy starter with nice Ks, solid whip and what should be decent win total with improved bullpen.

  32. I'm gonna go against the run of the mill and say take a risk with Taylor. I believe he will have a bounce back year and at $1 would be totally worth it. He has multiple position eligibility, and if he returns to his self from two years ago, he'll be that sleeper everyone wants... He was moved around so much last year and couldn't get comfortable, then there were doubts and he sat more than he should have...

  35. Heaney is one of the boring late options that has a pretty good shot to do well. with just a little better luck in the ERA department he'd become an SP3-4 rather than the SP5-6 he's being drafted as.

  36. I would rather keep Kyrie Jokic and Randle. Kemba for Kyrie is kind of a wash. Kyrie is obviously more consistent and shoots better but with these small injuries/rest days I'd call it even. Jokic and Randle I like a lot more than Lebron and Dedmon. Dedmon has a bad playoff schedule anyway 3-3-3 so he would barely be worth owning unless you are in a really deep league.

  39. Could be in line for a big breakout. Coming into his 3rd full year which is a prime time to grab an SP. Too many guys hop over big name rookie SPs in their first year when they still have a ton of growing pains ahead of them. 90% of them need a couple seasons before they hit their stride. This is it for Berrios.

  40. Big Ben is younger and bigger and stronger than Brady, and better at extending plays. Brady, at least this year, was better at winning games when they counted. And Brady was one Dee Ford phantom neutral zone infraction away from losing the AFC Championship with a three-pick effort. We know Brown is all about his own stats and his own glory, so I am not sure he is going to like it when Edelman catches 8-9 passes or Sony Michel scores three 1-yard TDs in a game and Brown goes 4-45.

  43. Early, but seems Caleb Smith (aka Dr. K) is really being overlooked. He was quite useful (prob more so in points formats) last year and then he injured his lat, but he's under no restrictions in camp and throwing fine. There are a few issues with the profile--mostly lack of an overpowering velo on his FB and being very flyball heavy (which likely lead to a 5+ road ERA). But with a 27+% K rate last year, the 27 yr old is, at least, a great back of the fantasy rotation guy/high-end home start streamer...with a ceiling that might allow him to tap into more.

  44. Love his stuff. Seemingly fell pretty far down the pecking pole in Atlanta last year though with the emergence of many of their young arms. Hopefully they don’t just turn him into a reliever early. I think he’s got a nice future as a starter.

  45. I prefer more strikeout upside with my fliers. Like gun to my head I'm picking between Mitchell and someone like Trevor Richards, I'll take Richards and his 9+ k/9 every time. Aggregately last year Mitchell had a 4.68 k/9 and 5.42 ERA.
