Joc Pederson, top 20 OF?
Brad Johnson
11:55
Maybe. Certainly has the power. There are so many good outfielders though

When managing multiple teams, do you try and diversify players on your teams (ex. owning Bregman in all leagues)?
Brad Johnson
11:56
I do try to diversify some to ensure I have some contenders. If you make the same bad bet in every league, then it'll sink your season
my big overlaps are $1 players like Capps and Reed

In a (13-team, mixed, 11 pitchers, 9*9) league that counts GIDPs and CGs, I'm excited about Graveman's newfound velocity--sitting 94-97 mph and touching 98, with sink. 7Ks last night in 6IP, as tiny SS evidence of potential effect. To grab him, I'd need to drop one of Andriese or Eickhoff. a) Agree with premise? b) Even if you don't, which of these two would you be more inclined to drop?
Brad Johnson
11:56
Do it. Andriese.
Graveman might be a top 20 pitcher
11:57
which reminds me. Taking a 2 minute break to ensure I claimed him in all leagues :)

Advice for a first time roto league player?
Brad Johnson
11:59
Oh boy. Can I assume you have H2H experience?
If so, the biggest difference is that the stats stick all season. You have to be a lot more careful when streaming pitchers
and much more diligent about getting all your offensive GP
12:00
you get no breaks in roto

Who to drop in my 10 team roto. Belt, Bird or Puig. I have 3 better 1b men.
Brad Johnson
12:00
whoa
Belt's the best player, but he's the least likely to develop trade value
him or Puig
probably should be Puig

Does Holland hold down the closer gig? Should I drop Ottavino for a handcuff to Tony Watson or K-Rod?
Brad Johnson
12:01
I need to see him pitch a few times at Coors. Holland is a slider-slider-slider guy which might not play well at elevation

The most boring & least talked about fantasy position - C. I have Vogt as a backup to Posey. Trying to hold him once teams get desperate at C due to injury, or lack of production from their current C. 17-team league - what type of value would you place on Vogt? 1 catcher league
Brad Johnson
12:01
Some kind of similarly unappealing starter
12:02
Michael Saunders? Matt Joyce?
Something like that
Rickey
12:02
You mentioned the home runs, what about the stolen bases? Everyone was so moved by Rickey's speech they all tried to be Rickey yesterday.

What are your thoughts on Jackie Bradley this year? He looked good last night.
Brad Johnson
12:03
I'm a fan
admittedly, I'm a late adopter of Bradley
he's a solid asset like Kole Calhoun
dee's nuts
12:03
i'm in a 6x6 head to head 12 teamer that counts qs with a max of 9 starts per week. we have six bench spots. my rotation is sale, archer, martinez, hill, manaea, cotton, gsellman. Is that too much volatility? In other words, should I trade for a third tier pitcher innings eater? hellickson, liriano and bauer are the caliber of what's on the wire.
Brad Johnson
12:03
nah, that's fine.
Barry
12:04
Can I count on Tommy Joseph as my starting 1B in fantasy? He has a long leash right?
Brad Johnson
12:04
Yes to both
he's going to hit home runs. Not sure how much else he'll do
kdallas
12:04
what's your take on the DeShields situation and outlook?
Brad Johnson
12:04
I don't have a good read on that yet
12:05
He's a 4th outfielder without a breakout
