Brad Johnson

He's very hyped which really messes with his value
I'd equate him to an early career Robbie Ray, except Ray was much less liked
Griff
4:44
I drafted Thames, and now I'm stuck with buyer's remorse. I missed the boat on trading him, didn't I? I had a buddy warn me...
Brad Johnson
4:44
I still like him a lot. I think he's been playing banged up since early May
Old man body probably needs more off days
Pat
4:44
Deshields starting again today, worth an add in 10 team al only?
Brad Johnson
4:44
Yes, that's a deep format. He runs frequently
John
4:45
Three keepers from this bunch: Trout Machado Springer Rizzo J. Ramirez
Brad Johnson
4:45
It's funny when people send lists like these
You really can't go wrong as long as one of them is Trout
Brian
4:45
Do you fall in the Bryce Harper is always hurt camp?  Trying to trade him for KB or Altuve
Brad Johnson
4:46
The players who aren't always hurt are the outliers. I don't think Harper is especially injury prone or anything
I've thought the same of Giancarlo all along too
Jim
4:46
How do you rank Treinen, Ziegler, and Hildenberger?  Not necessarily desperate for saves on my team but prefer my opponents not have them.
Brad Johnson
4:46
Treinen then ugh
4:47
Probably Hildenberger over Ziegler
Luck Dragons

Whats value of a good SP closer (Iglesias) in daily H2H categories league? Around Jon Lester value?
Brad Johnson
4:47
We're late in the season, it's all about the number of points up for grabs
4:48
If one blue chip closer is worth 10 points to you, then he might be worth Chris Sale. If it's only worth one point, then you have to find a SP that's worth 0 to you
Or vice versa
Points are all that matter
And if it's a H2H league, then it's a little less crazy
Pitchin' Luis Castillo
4:49
So do you think I could be an ace? Also, do you think the Reds shut me down soon over innings concerns?
Brad Johnson
4:49
Maybe, and maybe
Ah, Choo

How can I can prepare for the  fantasy playoffs (trade deadline over)? Any advice from a vet such as yourself?
Brad Johnson
4:49
The playoffs, unfortunately, are pretty random
You can try to plan for your expected opponents
4:50
Last year, I managed to snag 2nd with a 6th place regular season team by trading my power for speed. I regularly swept the pitching categories but struggled on offense. Netting saves was enough to get me to the championship round
4:51
Without trades available, it's mostly just preparing to finally cut those Villars and Storys
I'd wait until the actual playoffs though, just in case
Guest
4:51
Villar has looked good for the last few games.  Do you think he sees enough playing time ROS to get back on track, or has he blown his opportunity for this season?
Brad Johnson
4:51
A common misconception is that all hitters are better off playing every day
4:52
Many will maximize their performance on a rate basis by playing every other day. I think Tyler Flowers/Kurt Suzuki are a nice example
And it's certainly more necessary for catchers
So you might get more out of semi-part time Villar than full time Villar
The Brewers roster is quite cramped
Nedd
4:53
Joey Votto is a top-5 pick next year, right?
Brad Johnson
4:53
I don't see how
So many amazingly good players
Not a Phillies Fan
4:53
I have a Xander/Story battery at SS in a 12 team dynasty league; any recommendation on a stop-gag SS to stop the hemorrhaging?
