how do you try to compute the 'points to gain/lose' in your leagues to help target the right players? I'm struggling to pick the right threshold based on the amount of time left in the season. I need an equation based on league settings/time of the season for what is a hole that can be climbed out of, and what is a pit of despair.

Honestly, I mental math it. I learned a long time ago that you can't really plan fantasy production. Just manage your team as best as you can, pay attention to the categories, and cross your fingers

Thoughts on Cespedes ROS? Can land him for Rich Hill & Britton in a shallowIsh 12 teamer
Brad Johnson
4:09
High risk, massive reward
Same can be said of the other two
Butt-ton

Do you believe in Buxton as a hitter? I'm holding and holding in a 12-team dynasty, but I'm in contention, and if I need to make a move, can I risk letting him go? The CF in my lineup is waiver fodder.
Brad Johnson
4:10
I've been off the Buxton bandwagon for awhile. You should ask somebody who believes in him

what your take on Zack Granite, worth spot in 12 team OBP, worth a look or just wait for Leury Garcia to come back
Brad Johnson
4:10
Leury or somebody else will be better this year
Granite may be a tad overmatched - making a lot of soft contact
4:11
The speed isn't as elite as the past SB numbers suggest either
Eli

Gausman for Schwarber - who says no?
Brad Johnson
4:11
Schwarber should
Look, I know his season numbers are pretty ugly, but he still ought to be treated as a top 50 or so hitter RoS
4:12
And that's ignoring his C eligibility in some leagues
Jim Lahey

Alonso or Bour ROS and in the future?
Brad Johnson
4:12
Alonso and Alonso. Though Bour is fine too.

Also, the new site is pretty damn buggy. Even on this page, the ads are hogging memory and causing massive slowness.

Where do you see Salazar settling in when he comes back? He's sitting on the wire and I'm staring at him....
Brad Johnson
4:13
So for three of the last four seasons, Salazar was really bad early before becoming one of the best starters down the stretch
4:14
this year may be a little different in that he missed his tune up time
but that potential is there

Thanks for the chat! Did I mess up? In two trades in a 13 teamer, 3 year keeper league, I traded Bellinger ($1), Kyle Seager ($26) and Gallo ($1) and got back Machado (not keepable), Benintendi ($1) and Josh Bell ($1).
Brad Johnson
4:14
While I prefer the pre-trade trio, I don't think you've ruined yourself
Chuck
4:14
Would you take Barnes over Castillo?
Brad Johnson
4:15
That's right around the break even point. Do note, I was commenting on what Barnes has already done, not what he's likely to do RoS
Strong Steve
4:15
Potential suitors for Brad Hand?
Brad Johnson
4:15
29 teams
Porcho Villa
4:16
Belt to NYY an under-the-radar possibility? Have to think that a lot of his deep flyouts in AT&T would be HR in Yankee Stadium.
Brad Johnson
4:16
I would love that. I think they'll prefer the rental route with Alonso
Nicolino
4:16
Puig for Porcello in 13 team league. Fair offer?
Brad Johnson
4:16
Yes

This site told me Brad Johnson is chatting right now, but who's Brad Johnson
?
Brad Johnson
4:17
I have over 1,000 articles on FanGraphs with another 500 or so on The Hardball Times before they switched formats
4:18
So to answer your question, I'm the sixth most prolific author on this webbing site
Ricky
4:18
What are your thought regarding Wacha on the Road here vs a streaky Mets lineup Brad?
Brad Johnson
4:18
In short, very risky but doable
4:19
debating using him in DFS tonight
