This still sounds like "take less valuable guys because their production is more replaceable." The fact that a 20/20 guy's stats are more replaceable than a 40/5 guy should tell you something...he's worth less than the 40/5 guy.
Let's take your scenario. If the 40/5 guy gets hurt, you can still replace him with the 15/15 guy on waivers. The end result in your two downside scenarios (where your initial player gets hurt) is the same - you get the 15/15 guy's production. But in the upside scenarios (your initial player doesn't get hurt and produces as expected) you're losing out on the 40/5 upside by selecting the 20/20 player over him.
There isn't a set goal of # of HRs or SBs you need to hit because you can get value in multiple ways (winning other categories every week in H2H or getting 1st in HRs instead of, say, 4th in Roto) and you can get category contributions from all the hitters on your roster (mixing HR-heavy, SB-heavy and 20/20 guys). There is a reason the guys who hit lots of HRs tend to be more valuable than the 20/20 or 15/15 guys.
Auction draft keeper league. i wont have computer access till the draft tonight... I assigned keepers and set their appropriate values with the Assign Auction Keeper Players tool, but they are not locking in. When i go to the confirm keepers tool it shows that noone has been chosen... any ideas!?!?!?!
Yahoo Custom 12 team league looking for managers. Draft is 9/5 2pm Central. $250 Entry (payment handled through yahoo). 1st Place wins $2k, 2nd Place wins $750, 3rd Place $250.
Must pay upfront.
This is a good point that I hadn't taken into consideration: Injuries.
By your scenario, if you draft with that it mind, targeting the best HR/steal combos at every position, and you lose a 20/20 guy to injury, you can go find a 15/15 guy on FA with relative ease, even in competitive leagues. Then you're only losing 5 homers and 5 steals approximately.
However, if you lost someone who hits 40 homers and doesnt steal (say Trumbo), you'd be hard pressed to find someone who will hit even 25 homers on the FA wire.
It's a good point and the logic makes sense. Definitely something to consider going into future drafts. I learned something today. Seriously, no sarcasm.
That said, nobody in their right mind owns Freddy Galvis or Encarnacion or Trumbo. But I get your point. Thanks for explaining.
I am saying that balanced guys that consistently perform and high standards are MORE VALUABLE than any one trick pony.
You fail hard at math, logic, and reading comprehension.
Not even waiver wire play every few games or so? I feel there is much more capital in drafting a deep bench for trade opportunity or in case of injury. Thanks. http://fsnicklendime.blogspot.com/
I'm the commissioner of the league, & I'm almost certain I've done this in the past, & it was as easy as clicking on 'managers' from the homepage.
This brings up a list of all the managers including their email address. I'm pretty sure that in the past there was an option to edit a teams email address. This option is no longer available.
Sorry if I overlooked something obvious, but I'd really really appreciate if somebody could help me out, because my league is scheduled to draft on Sunday, August 28th
That's tough, if you can offer Landry with either Johnson or Vereen then do. If he doesn't bite, then your lineup if fine unless you want to part ways with Lacy or Ingram. Given the hype that NO has had this offseason with their passing attack now including Michael Thomas and Coby Fleener and that they play in an indoor stadium at least half the year, they may not run Ingram as much as everyone thinks. Lacy on the other hand, while overweight, is a much more likely candidate for carrying the ball or at least on the field in the cold weather and I'm still not sold on Nelson's health. http://fsnicklendime.blogspot.com/
If I'm going QB late I'm getting 2 of them. If I'm getting an early QB, I'm only drafting 1. For the early rounds though, I usually take best available and then let that determine how I play the middle rounds. Honestly, I dont' think there should be any other way to draft.
Don't overthing it.

This is for a head-to-head free Yahoo league.

Standard league: QB,WR,WR,WR,RB,RB,TE,DEF,K
The rest is bench; What is your favorite strategy to approach the RB position in the first half of the draft? OR How do you approach your bench picks assuming you draft a QB late?
Nobody is that smart!
I am the one person in my league with any smarts!!
I am going to get Stanton FOR FREE!!! You wait and see Mr. Non Believerer.
