I'm open to buying

I have big time DL problems. 10 team head to head league with 6 bench spots and 2 DL spots. I have Lorenzo Cain, Jose Bautista, JD Martinez, and Gerrit Cole. Can't get anyone to bite on LoCain. What kind of value should I look for for Joey or JD? Would I ever just drop LoCain considering his ok season thus far?
Brad Johnson
1:10
You can think about dropping Cain if the right guy comes along. It's a shallow format after all

DL Round: Taillon droppable in redraft? Thoughts on Ryu? Time to pick up Tyson Ross?
Brad Johnson
1:11
1. Yes. 2. Stash or watch 3. Soon or now depending on league depth

Danny Valenica slumping hard lately. Is he still a 10 team bat? Would I be better off dropping him and picking up Mike Napoli or Evan Gattis for my UTIL spot? Standard scoring with OPS as sixth category
Brad Johnson
1:11
You can stream Valencia if he's just the UTIL

10 team OBP dynasty where I have Bryant/Arenado/Betts/Springer/Mazara. Is Dahl or Gallo the better stash?
Brad Johnson
1:12
I'll take Dahl's five category ceiling

Your best guess as to if Aaron Sanchez will truly end up in the bullpen? Seems like nobody knows.
Brad Johnson
1:12
No. The Blue Jays have a 1 year window. It doesn't really matter if Sanchez breaks, they aren't getting back to the postseason during the rest of his controllable years

James Paxton as a starter every week? I've got him right now but I don't really know what to expect RoS. Velocity isn't everything but it sure does help
Brad Johnson
1:13
That's basically my take away. There are still problems but the velo makes it easier to overlook them
Josh
1:13
ROS, would you rather have Abreu or Carpenter at 1B?
Brad Johnson
1:13
Carp. Plus he can play 2B/3B if you need it

10 team 20 man roster keeper - should I give up on J Upton?
Brad Johnson
1:14
no
that's a deep keeper roster even though the league is shallow
Zb

Need a spot start Rodon or manaea? Thx
Brad Johnson
1:14
I'm trying Manaea but watch for rain

Odorizzi or Eickhoff for dynasty league?
Brad Johnson
1:15
Odorizzi. I put Eickhoff down in the Alex Wood tier
Pepitone

Worst-case pitching scenario: 14-team league, Kershaw AND Greinke both on my DL. Replacement options: Z Davies, WY Chen, Sabathia, Cashner, Straily, Folty, Jorge DLR, leave empty .... Count wins and quality starts, but potential damage to WHIP and ERA
Brad Johnson
1:15
Davies for now and stream anyone with a good match
Bill

Should the Astros be playing Reed more to let him get in a rhythm?
Brad Johnson
1:16
I think they've decided he isn't ready. Sometimes it takes a few days to work out a switch
alternatively, they could be working on something specific and want him focused on the fix
keith

Braun for Price sound reasonable for a pitching needy team?
Brad Johnson
1:16
yea

please rate: i traded n. walker and jake lamb for puig, saunders (Jays) and sonny gray -- my best pitcher before this trade was descalfini, FYI
Brad Johnson
1:16
that's a scary pitching staff...
1:17
it's probably fair
I consider Lamb to the be the best in the deal with Walker second best
I'm down on Puig
no power no speed no average
how is he still well regarded?
Bill
1:17
When will Austin Barnes make a fantasy impact?
Brad Johnson
1:17
immediately
