  1. Could be worth a flyer for those in deeper leagues.... Hitting .364/.423/.682 with two homers, a double, and a steal in six minor league games
  2. I’m guessing your league only has SP/RP spots. I’ve seen this happen before. He won’t show up until he earns one designation or the other. Same thing happens with UTIL only players in leagues that don’t have a UTIL slot.
  3. Haha, no problem! It definitely tripped me up the first time I used it. I kept waiting for waivers to clear (not wanting to spend my FAB, and simultaneously not knowing $0 bids were a thing), and it just never happened haha 🤦‍♂️
  4. I’m sure. Been playing in this type of league for 3-4 years now. The only way a transaction takes two days is if your league has Roster Changes set to “Daily - Tomorrow,” as opposed to the new standard in yahoo, “Daily - Today.” Continuous waivers with FAB is basically a mini blind auction (with $0 bids) that runs every night. I think it’s more fun, honestly. Just make sure you have your bids in before 3am eastern , if you want to be able to use that player the next day.
  5. Not exactly. The 2 day wait only comes into play when a player is dropped (and immediately following your draft, but that’s pretty standard). With continuous waivers, you put in a claim today, and—if you win him—he’ll be on your roster (and playable) tomorrow. It’s actually a better system once you get used to it IMO, as it eliminates the need to rush to make pickups the instant a new closer/call-up is announced.
  6. Just came across this... It’s literally the only source I could find, but she seems legit 🤷‍♂️
  7. Given that your league settings essentially devalue SPs, and since you’re already keeping two of them, I would prioritize hitters for your first several picks.
  8. From AJ Mass: Why exactly are we all buying in on Kyle Tucker? ... In his first 88 plate appearances last season, he hit .193 and in his last 81 PAs, he scraped out a .243 average. In between, he had a stellar 59 PAs where he hit .423 with five homers and 24 RBI (kick-started by a pair of games at Coors Field). Take that slice out of his 2020 and we're looking at around a 40-game sample of a guy who hit .217 with four home runs and 18 RBI. This is top 50? https://www.espn.com/fantasy/baseball/story/_/id/30984958/fantasy-baseball-roundtable-which-prominent-player-avoid-all-costs
  9. I don’t subscribe to The Athletic, so I’m not sure if this covers everything, but it seems to offer a decent explanation: https://www.bleachernation.com/cubs/2021/02/08/mlb-is-trying-to-de-juice-the-baseball-again/
