solid role player for now

What the heck should I do with Justin Upton? Too much upside to drop? Waiver options include Prince Fielder, Matt Holliday, Gerardo Parra, Carlos Beltran, Grichuk, Inciarte..
Brad Johnson
2:21
With those waiver options, you can move on. In fact, I recommend just streaming guys at Coors or against the Reds
Zorak
2:22
Inciarte still worth owning in a 12tm h2h points? Hasn't sniffed my starting line-up since coming off the DL.
Brad Johnson
2:22
No, he's cut-able
Patrick
2:22
Need serious help! Which side do you like better? AL Keeper: Machado, Springer, Rodon, Justin Wilson, Ianetta for McCann, Lindor, Frazier, Kluber, Britton
Brad Johnson
2:22
Machado-Springer side
Those 2 and Lindor are the long term assets
2:23
the second side is more win-now though if you're willing to cash now and cry later
N.W.enO

What are your thoughts on Abreu?
Brad Johnson
2:23
Bobby Abreu is a quietly borderline hall of famer
2:24
my favorite part is that the Phillies traded Kevin Stocker to get him
Jose Abreu is also still a top 10 1B
barely

14 team pts. league. Give up finally on Pineda? Recently picked up Folty and Shoemaker from the WW.
Brad Johnson
2:24
Not sure I'd give up, but I'm not going out of my way to keep him
2:25
The stuff is still there

10 teamhead to head dynasty is it worth dropping Adam Jones for Benintendi or Meadows at this point? I have sufficient depth to do this I just am frustrated and feel like I am wasting a roster spot on Jones.
Brad Johnson
2:26
I wouldn't, although do find a way to roster Benintendi. I have him in a normal 12 team keeper along with Swanson, Bregman, and Reed. They're eating 4 of my 6 bench spots
Pete
2:26
What kind of return can I seek for Brandon Belt in a dynasty? Been looking to trade him, but can't find anything to my liking just yet.
Brad Johnson
2:26
Market somebody else, you won't get a fair return
2:27
He's just one of those guys whose perceived value is way below his actual production
The Giants tend to be heavy on those guys, maybe we all just subconsciously hate Giants
2:28
For example, I'd like to trade Santiago Casilla in my deep dynasty, but the offers I get are clownish
Kenton
2:28
Carlos Martinez was just dropped in my 10-team re-draft. Is he a hold or a streamer in this format? Would you drop Maybin to add him?
Brad Johnson
2:28
He's a hold, but that doesn't mean he's the right fit for you. If you need SB, AVg, and R, then Maybin could be the better fit.
2:29
Kinda imagine there are better OF than Maybin if you need different stats

Thoughts on starting E-Rod today?
Brad Johnson
2:29
Oh nonononononono
Do not, under any circumstance, consider starting ERod

11-team, keep-16 forever 5x5 league. My team is middle of the pack. Trade offer on the table: Carrasco + Puig for Conforto + Blake Snell.
Brad Johnson
2:30
Well, that's a toughie. The second side is probably much better long term
Though you might not keep Snell into next season
pretty easy to draw up 176 better keepers
2:31
I no longer know what to make of Puig. With his inconsistent power and speed, he was always a weird fantasy asset
Justin Turner
2:31
Am I in a two month funk or just not very good?
Brad Johnson
2:32
It's possible the Justin Turner Experiment is nearing a conclusion. He's getting old-ish and has battled so many minor injuries. They add up
Warm, Kakie Center
2:32
which side would you rather be on in a 6x6 (ops + qs) h2h league: trea turner + thor for springer + victor robles?
Brad Johnson
2:33
Thor this year, maybe Springer long term
assuming it's a keeper since Robles ain't sniffing the bigs this year
