they break/decline too often

How many GS/week would you estimate for Benintendi, going fwd?
Brad Johnson
1:58
4.5? This non-platoon talk is premature. He has 13 PA
Jalen
1:58
Jankowski is fast, but will he SB more than Billy Hamilton rest of the way?
Brad Johnson
1:58
I'll go with no, but he's a cheap alternative with similar production
Maris

Billy Hamilton already has more SB in the second half of the season then the first half. Whats your best guess at whats behind the surge?
Brad Johnson
1:59
Health or he might have been working on something
Bill

My Chris Davis for his Kenta Maeda and Alex Bregman? It's a 12 team keeper, cats are 5x5 + OPS and K/BB
Brad Johnson

Not a huge fan of disaggregating talent, but this could be a big win down the road.

When looking at currently injured players in dynasty formats for 2017 and beyond, which injuries scare you more than others and would make you stay away (say, Schwarber's ACL vs Harvey's thoracic outlet syndrome) from acquiring someone?
Brad Johnson
2:00
Most types of pitching injury - pitchers are just so volatile in general.
Leg injuries for speed-only guys. Some types of hand injuries for power bats.
2:01
Not worried about Schwarber's injury - more concerned with the already existing issues

Are you a believer in Dahl? Off to a hot start, plays in Coors :)
Brad Johnson
2:01
Huge
2:02
That Rockies lineup is going to be beastly next season. Assuming they can find a viable 1B.
Yulieski's Squirriel
2:02
How comfortable would you be going into next season with some combo of Mazara/Kepler/Dahl as your 2,3,4 OFers, or is that too much volatility?
Brad Johnson
2:02
It's a lot of volatility. I'm planning a similar, bigger gambit in my home league.
2:03
Mazara, Dahl, Bregman, Reed, Swanson, Zimmer, Lamb, Naquin, Tapia, Benintendi, Hedges, Contreras. Figure the spikes will offset the flops
2:04
oh and Story. All $8 to keep (can push one to $1)
Seth

would you trade machado/$37 for odor/$17 and Pineda/$14 (all next year prices)?...16 team 5x5, deep rosters, playing for next year...debating trading or keeping machado...
Brad Johnson
2:04
I'd want more for Machado. I'm known to be a little pessimistic about Odor though
I feel like I have aggressive projections for him, then I talk to other people...
Discollama
2:05
In a super deep keeper (18-23 keepers, 20 team mixed) I traded away Altherr, Sonny Gray, and Luis Severino for David Price, Rendon, and Clint Frazier, how do you think I did?
Brad Johnson
2:05
Excellent
Neel
2:05
are there any under the radar prospects that you seem to like more than others in the industry? deep dynasty league, looking for guys that aren't on the general top 100 lists
Brad Johnson
2:05
Phil Ervin comes to mind
going to have GABP helping his middling power
2:06
could be a 10/30 guy with low average, solid OBP
Josh
2:06
Hard to believe, but Correa has barely been a top-10 SS this year. Does he finish on a high note?
Brad Johnson
2:06
your guess is as good as mine on the finish. I thought this was how he was going to play last year. Should have stuck to my guns
Discollama
2:06
On a scale of 1-10, how worried should owners be with David Price? Are the BoSox kicking themselves?
Brad Johnson
2:06
I'll say a 4. I think he can adjust out of his current struggles
2:07
I'm sure the Sox thought they'd get much more instant gratification
if his postseason struggles continue, they'll be pissed at themselves
Gruntled
2:07
thoughts on Kemp ROS and next year? Atlanta stinks but San Diego wasn't exactly a juggernaut either
Brad Johnson
2:07
He'll get DFA'd by some point next season

10 Team keep forever league hurt by Kershaw and Salazar DL Stints, have Giolito, is he a must hold or possible cut for streaming purposes?
JD15
2:08
Rostering Giolito in my 18 team keep 12 (up to 5 years) league, but I could use someone who is giving me innings. Feel like giving up all of Giolito's potential is too much for stud non-keeper. How should I proceed? Trade deadline is Sunday.
Brad Johnson
2:08
Couple consecutive Giolito questions.
