Some advice for a previous question about off-the-radarSP targets

Roster limits kick in Sunday in my dynasty and due to offseason pick stashing I have to drop 6 guys (or 4 with 2 guys going to DL) how do you handle this normally? Slide prospects back to FA pool and hope they're still there when you want them? Start sending wild 3-1 trade offers to guys with roster space?
Brad Johnson
11:39
Dynasty is all about managing your assets. I usually discard the boring vets like Jayson Werth
the volume prospects like Gavin Cecchini are also expendable
11:40
ideally, you want your roster condensed in young, established MLBers and other youngin's with big upside

I drafted Marcus Thames by accident last week. Any hope he unretires and hits 25 HRs?
Brad Johnson

*ahem*

I have Jose De Leon on my bench in standard 5x5 dynasty. Robert Gsellmen is sitting in FA and I'm considering dropping De Leon for Gsellmen. Thoughts?
Brad Johnson
11:41
I might do that. Have you kicked around any trades for De Leon first? 2-for-1s?
Dr. Met
11:41
Believer in the return of the Panda to something resembling 2014 numbers?
Brad Johnson
11:41
I believe in him as a streaming eligible player with some upside
Bruce

Gsellman or Nova?
Brad Johnson
11:41
Gsellman
James

Yu or Bum this year?
Brad Johnson
11:41
...
11:42
I'm supposed to say Bum, but I love Yu so much

Zunino has his K-rate down to 24% this spring and is mashing the ball on contact as usual. If he can cut his strikeouts under 30% this year do you think he can be a top-10 catcher?
Brad Johnson
11:42
It's not a high bar to clear. He's shown these temporary non-heinous strikeout blips before. Then the league adjusts and he's back above 30%
11:43
Tells me that Zunino CAN adjust, but not quickly

OBP league...trade my odor for his gordon? thoughts?
Brad Johnson
11:43
I can't imagine a Gordon for which this makes much sense
and I'm down on Odor
11:44
I kinda like Villar's category production the most
ADPs don't support my opinion, but I still think Villar should be going around picks 13 to 15
Joey
11:44
From this list: Seager, Bogaerts, Villar, Stanton, Braun, C.Gonzalez; Who would you pair with Encarnacion (I assume Seager; who might be next choice?) and who would you pair with Correa? Thanks!
Brad Johnson
11:45
I must have misclicked...last comment was for this
I kinda like Villar's category production the most
ADPs don't support my opinion, but I still think Villar should be going around picks 13 to 15
Probably Villar in both cases for me

My closers are terrible. You okay flipping Taijuan for Ryan Madson? It's about all I can get
Brad Johnson
11:45
Yea that's fine. And if you have room, snag Doolittle off waivers to handcuff. I think he'll have the job by May
TP for my Byung-Ho
11:46
Think Jose Ramirez gets a few starts at 2B?
Brad Johnson
11:46
Seems plausible with Kipnis out
Matthew
11:46
What sort of additional value would you give to players with multi-position eligibility in leagues with very shallow benches and FAABs?
Brad Johnson
11:46
the importance definitely increases, but I'm not convinced you should pay more
11:47
it helps to lock up a few multi-position guys early - i.e. Carpenter and Villar before everybody goes nuts overbidding Peraza-types
BobbyOx
11:47
What do you make of the Rockies Catcher situation? Does Wolters and/or Murphy - when he returns - have any value?
Brad Johnson
11:47
Coors Field adds insta-value to anybody
11:48
Wolters hits just enough to be 12-team relevant when at home

+/- 99.5 AB for Kang this season ?
