its an 8 team league so go after the risky guys. think cordarrelle patterson and jeremy maclin. RBs like ball and spiller instead of morris and gore. QBs like kaep instead romo. i wouldnt create a dont draft list just try to find evaluations you like and dont be afraid to make some bold moves in the draft

not crazy at all... im buying into floyd for sure this year. he may be a bit inconsistent but thats how WRs are. even megatron had over 50% of his fantasy points come in his 4 biggest games last year.

i dont think pederson will be valuable in 10 team leagues this year, but in deeper leagues he would be worth taking a chance. i just dont see kemp being moved during this season though. once i heard he wanted to be traded this year to play more even though his team is in a great race, i lost all faith in a kemp bounceback, nobody has time for selfish players like that.

i dont think any smart team would trade for kemp or crawford. if the dodgers dont want them, why would anyone else? im guessing a lot of the phone calls are something like dodgers: "we'll give you matt kemp and this minor league sp for david price". rays: "no, but we will do it for pederson". dodgers: #$%$, i thought we could get rid of our expensive damaged goods." either way i think pederson will make his impact next year, but if they can trade kemp or crawford, then yes pederson will come up and he will get a chance, not like ethier is lighting it up either.

is it a dynasty league or do you keep 6? if youre only keeping 6 players i dont think any of the players involved should be kept so i would want zimm, hudson, and cobb. veto material? certainly not

well he has more runs, steals, and a higher avg. sorry you overvalue homers? brantley is ranked higher than stanton in yahoo and espn right now, and was drafted much lower than stanton. so yes, brantley has been more valuable to owners than stanton has been thus far. not a crazy statement in the slightest. your argument is so strong, i can see why people on here respect you so much...

sure youre taking on a risk that tulo with be out for a while but youre really not giving up much. simon, latos, and pedroia for these three? easy accept for you

you should definitely not move freeman, rendon, gomez, cespedes, dickerson, calhoun, scherzer, kluber, your relievers, or buxton. i have no issues with moving the others to improve for this year

i dont like choo going forward. and kipnis said he will be playing hurt for the rest of the year. but not a terrible deal, kipnis could still do some damage and coghlan is bad. between those 4 i rank them calhoun, holt, choo, coghlan. maybe switch choo and holt, but i like holt's eligibility

i think you would be giving too much but i guess it depends on who you would be replacing ellsbury with in your OF. ellsbury should put up better stats than reyes but its all about the upgrade from zobrist to reyes vs the downgrade of ellsbury to your replacement player

all i can say is i would trade abreu, not goldy. theres no reason to think abreu cant sustain this? thats shenanigans... his iso of .329 and his hr/fb% is 33%. both are completely unsustainable. miggy's career iso is .246 (which is huge) and hes never had a season above .300. miggy's career hr/fb% 19.1% and hes only had one season above 25%. barry bonds career iso was .309 and his fb/hr% (since it became a stat in '02) was 25%. do you really think abreu has more power than miguel cabrera and barry bonds? thats straight up ludicrous.

i would certainly give you reyes for ellsbury and zobrist. i would not give you reyes and polanco though. alcides escobar is silly cold right now, so i dont think he is the answer. i would potentially go after a cheaper guy like lowrie and if i was gonna trade for a top ss i would go after desmond he has been underrated all year IMO
