Goldschmidt is definitely the preferred option over Trout and Harper. Hell...he actually steals bases. As such, he was #2 in power/speed number for MLB in 2015 (he was also #2 on the Diamondbacks...thank you A. J. Pollock).

You may disagree all you like. That simply means that you are wrong and you lack logical thought processes.
It doesn't matter what the "average" draft position is because no league is "average".
If you want him...draft him.

Who cares? If you go by ADP then you are an idiot.
Do your own research. If you want them...if you think they will help your cause...if you value them...pick them when they are available.

LMAO. That would be incorrect, Mike P.
The average public league is just as involved as the average private league.

Who cares about "after the all star break"? I don't deal with arbitrary end times (which is exactly what the all star break is).
Again...Blackmon is a .288 hitter for his career. Nobody has time to manage home/away splits.
Again...Blackmon is a HR/SB and power/speed monster. This is not debatable.
You may continue to be willfully ignorant of the mathematics involved. However, that simply means that you do not dwell in a field that utilizes advanced analytics.

More consistent? Are you stupid?
Charlie Blackmon is the only player in MLB to be in the top 10 in power/speed number in EACH OF THE PAST TWO SEASONS. Guys named Goldschmidt, Donaldson, Pollock, Trout, Harper, Puig, Cespedes, McCutchen, Gomez, nor Upton can claim that.
The batting average drops away from home but Blackmon still has 20 of his 45 career HR on the road and 34 of his career 84 SB on the road. Nobody has time to manage home/road splits.
Blackmon is a career .288 hitter in MLB overall. It doesn't matter what he does on the road if you can plug him in for a season and get .288 with 20 HR and 20 SB.

I don't play in money leagues. Why would I pay money for something that is free?
Again...play in money leagues is pure stupidity.

I don't manage home/road splits. I have no desire to be a real life baseball GM. I manage fantasy baseball teams.
That being said...Charlie Blackmon was 5th overall in MLB in power/speed number in each of the past two seasons. Charlie Blackmon is also the ONLY PLAYER IN ALL OF MLB to be in the top 10 in power/speed number in each of the past two seasons. Charlie Blackmon is a HR/SB monster and he gets plenty of both. Combine that with the fact that he plays half his games in the friendliest hitting environment in all of MLB and you have a potential #1 overall draft pick. Believing otherwise is pure stupidity and/or mathematical ignorance.

Trout is a sub 17 SB guy and has been for each of the past two seasons. His 162 game average has him at 28 SB but he hasn't come within 10 SB of that in either of the past two seasons. It is not that he can't steal bases...it is that he won't steal bases...and rightfully so if he has figured out that he can get paid by hitting HR.
I would rather have a team of Bobby Abeu's, Kirk Gibson's, and Steve Finley's long before a team of Mike Trout's and Bryce Harper's. The 20/20/80/80/.280 player is vastly underrated in real life and even more so in fantasy baseball.
I traded away both Trout and Arenado last season and won handily. Their roster spots were eventually taken by A.J. Pollock and Manny Machado. HR without SB at any position other than C is foolish in fantasy baseball...and is serious stupidity with a #1 overall draft pick. You need 5 category contributions with your #1 overall draft pick and neither Trout nor Harper (nor any pitcher) offer that.

Your league scoring settings are stupid.
Scoring both OPS and XBH is redundant.
Scoring both BB and OPS is redundant.
Scoring both AVG and OPS is contradictory.
Scoring H and AVG is redundant.
