    I don't know points leagues very well, but Yelich is a no-brainer, IMO.

    And I rode that to 4th place in a 10 team league.

    I think I like Mondesi over Segura. More of a #YOLO pick but with your other hitters go for the upside IMO ...

    Get to keep 8 in a dynasty auction league with $350

    6x6 H2H..holds were added to saves starting this season and the keeper cost went from +$5 per year to +$10 per year so costs are a little skewed and will take some time to settle.

    Keeping all my minor leaguers too

    So far I’m leaning with:
    Freeman
    JD
    Judge

    Ray
    Darvish
    Freeland
    Kela

    Can’t decide on my 8th but thinking Marte or Bogaerts. SS is super deep and Marte gives me SBs. Bogaerts had his best year last year but I have a feeling I can get him again for cheaper than 38 in the draft. Adames at 6 is nice but he’s still not good enough for the price. Maybe Marte at 40 too but then again OF isn’t crazy deep. Lowrie is enticing at 10. Skaggs and Gibson are also other options but I’m gonna try and get an ace to compliment my keepers and feel like I need to keep another bat.

    I’m also hoping to get some Holds guys cheaper than what we’ve had to pay for closers. Are there any guys out there I should target?

    thanks. I'm just overthinking whether I want to keep a 2nd SP with Syndy but probably not worth the offset in value from losing Yelich

    I have 2nd pick after keepers so I should be able to grab a good SP there

    Dynasty league with 25 keepers eligible. I am pretty much set on who I will be keeping for batters and SPs. Currently I have 3 slots I'd like to use for closers. Who do I prioritize of this group? Chapman, Wade Davis, Knebel, Kirby Yates, Jose Leclerc, Cody Allen ...

    Right now my picks are Chapman, Davis and Knebel. It is a pure projection on # of saves. Davis' metrics kind of suck but I have a good SP pool to keep his ratios in check. I would love to squeeze Yates or Leclerc in there but I dont have the keeper spots to do it (and I think either could be trade candidates and see a role change). I will have a chance to draft any of them as this league only has a few teams trying to compete and will value the back half top 100 types vs closers that can help this year ...

    Knebel is supposed to be the "closer" again, right? I know Hader is lurking but it seems like their desired set up is still Knebel in the 9th. He wrapped up the season pretty strong in the playoffs ...

    I think given the other hitters he's keeping it's worth the risk. I'm gonna very careful to not overdraft/bid Mondesi this year though. A lot of blow up potential there IMO ...

    #Oakland A's fans, is Dustin Fowler getting passed over in the OF? Saw they signed Grossman, and it was already a crowded group there. Thinking I may have to let him go for dynasty as my team is in "win now" mode ...

    NFBC vets, if I'm looking for the simplest format to try it out for the first time, I assume something like the $350 online championship is the best choice?

    Weekly lineups vs daily in NFBC, right?

    In my first one this year. It's weekly but you can change hitters occasionally I think. I'm in $150

    I think the idea is you can win your league then depending how dominant your team was win an overall contest vs every other league/owner ...

    $150 draft champions. It’s mixed, 15 team, 5x5 roto, 50 rounds. ive done the slow draft. There should be a four hour and eight hour. Usually takes less than 3 weeks to complete. Of course, you can also do a live draft if u want to do it quicker.

    No trades or free agency in this one

    Weekly lineup change for pitching. Thursday and Sunday for hitting

    Yes and they also have Ramon Laureano who impressed last year during August and September (he is the dude who had the play of the year against Angels). I would say Fowler has an uphill climb as of now.

    Wow. Is it Roto, H2H? What are your stats? I’m taking high upside low ceiling players and hoping for breakout seasons.
    Is it a re-draft league or dynasty?

    It's this NFBC draft and hold redraft league. Standard categories, roto, no transactions during the year

    Seems like a lot of strategy and even more luck. You have to draft backups at every position or you might get 5 months of 0s if your guy gets hurt. And yeah, hope you find a breakout

    We have one opening to take over an existing roster. Non-money keeper. League is competitive and been around for over 20 years. 6x6 AL only roto. Keep 5 MLB players (3 yr contracts), 4 minor leaguers. Slow snake draft. Non auction.
