I assume it's an access to data thing

Trying to pick some keepers for next season, 14 team H2H and get to keep 3. I have Corey Seager locked in as my franchise player and looking to keep 2 of Benintendi, Moncada, Alex Reyes, Musgrove, Josh Bell or Wilson Contreras
Brad Johnson
4:22
I'll cross Bell, Contreras, and Musgrove off the list for you
They're never going to get to that first round designation you need to justify keeping a growth asset
4:23
I'm a little hesitant about keeping Moncada too, maybe see how he does in AFL to gauge when he'll return

DJ LeMahieu, top 5 2B?
Brad Johnson
4:23
So quietly good.
4:24
Not ready to call him a consistent top 5 though
if he was having another 20 SB season, sure
but he's showing signs of slowing down on the bases

I need to bench one of these hitters next week (5x5 head to head playoffs): J.Lamb, J.Turner, K.Davis, M.Kemp, J.Bautista. Am I crazy benching Bautista?
Brad Johnson
4:25
So I haven't looked at matchups, but Kemp is the least interesting bat
not crazy to pick Bautista though, depending on the matchups
they're all similar profiles and asset class

Which 2 for my UTIL spot to start tonight: Cron (v Walker), Khrush (v Duffy), CGomez (v Peacock), Soler (v Garcia)?
Brad Johnson
4:26
Gomez is somehow a leadoff hitter which helps
Probably go Cron for the second pick
Walker just hasn't looked himself

Drafted Dee Gordon in the second round this year, sigh. Curious about what you think of him for 2017?
Brad Johnson
4:27
I'm hoping he's a good buy low. My gut says he'll be the Adrian Beltre of draft season
For clarity, Beltre averaged like $5 across all leagues, but he cost $18 or more in all of mine
4:28
so good leagues will still pay for Gordon
4:29
as for actually production, I think he'll mostly rebound. He currently has the highest soft contact rate (if he were qualified) plus a low line drive rate
I doubt he'll remain that bad in 2017
I hate Fall
4:29
How much will I hate myself if I add Ricky Nolasco in my AL-only league. There's seriously nothing but scraps.
Brad Johnson
4:29
I use him in DFS occasionally (DK only)
4:30
when you need to throw a hail mary, he's one of the few garbage pitchers who has a shot at a complete game

I had a bye for the first round of my H2H playoffs last week and the team I wanted to face was ahead in his matchup going into Sunday. The only way for his opponent to pull it out would have been to grab every streamer available and try and steal the QS category. I used all my moves to add and drop four of them, hoping to put them on waivers. Yahoo has a mechanism to prevent that, it turns out, but in your opinion: dick move or good managing? My friends all hated it.
Brad Johnson
4:31
Nothing wrong with that in my book since Yahoo forces you to wait through a game before they qualify for waivers
4:32
if Yahoo didn't have that feature and I was commissioner, I would manually switch everyone back to available and issue you a warning

OBP dynasty where I have Arenado,Bryant 3B/OF, and Correa. Do I hope that everybody maintains their current eligibility and keep Moncada, or do I trade him?
Brad Johnson
4:33
You can shop Moncada, but yeah, I think you keep him
The upside is peak Alfonso Soriano
That's better than any of those three you listed
and it's also 4+ years in the future whereas those guys are peaked now

Curious to hear your thoughts on Barreto. He looks ticketed for 2B...much of a chance he's a future 20/20 player?
Brad Johnson
4:34
I haven't investigated him recently
the questions are slowing down so I'll take a moment to form some opinions
4:35
Ok so here's my take...
he could be a 20/20 player but I'm not confident the power and speed will really coincide
