    Last years leaders had Bell and Gurley right? Doesn't really matter much what you have behind those two as long as it's not nothing. Taking the 4 RB to start, since two are flexes, you have to ask yourself is the RB going to outscore the WR available at this point? Does Barkley RB6 outscore Brown/Hopkins WR1? Does McCaffrey RB11 outscore the WR's available then? Does Drake outscore the WR's, does Henry etc... If the answer is always yes, the RB will outscore the WR according to your projections then the pick is to take the RB. Behoove away.

    Nice luck to get McCaffrey to fall that far back to you in 2. Gotta love that. Taking 4 RB to start puts you strong in one position and weak everywhere else. Gonna be tough.

    Robby A. seems like value to me where he goes. He was WR18 last year and goes in round 8 typically. Think Amari bounces back. Probably doesn't though. Taking him in 3 every time. I'm sorry that you don't like it.

    2018 MLB Regular Season Thread! Current thread batting average: .420

    Anyone able to help me here? O’s put Britton on the 60 day DL in Feb. When does the clock start for the 60 days? 60 days after they put him on so he’s eligible to return in April or 60 days after the opener so he’s eligible in June?

    Chris Hogan -- NE WR

    37 rushing yards, 0 rush TD on 8 carries.

    Chris Hogan -- NE WR

    74/953/7 - Brandon LaFell from 2014 with Gronk and Edelman playing basically full seasons. So, Gronk is Gronk, Cooks is Edelman, Hogan is LaFell (plus a little bit) 77/1004/8

    ***Official Blue Jays Thread*** Basically just waiting for Vlad Jr.

    There's some flexibility as well. Morales played a handful of games at 1B the last couple years. Heck he even played 5 games in RF last year. Probably wasn't pretty. Pearce can play OF as well. You can find a game or two each week with Jose at DH which should help to keep him at full strength. He could even probably do some work at 1B. I would say the top 6 bats in the lineup are as strong as anyones in the AL. The rotation is right near the top of the AL. Osuna is a 2nd tier closer behind the Chapmans and Brittons. Really comes down to bullpen and bottom third. You can add a good setup man at the deadline if you are in contention come late July. Any $$$ left in the budget?

    Gotta like that move.

    Personnally I like it. Donaldson was a 30 HR guy in Oakland, turned into a 40 HR guy in TO. Morales was a 30 HR guy in KC, I could see him as a 35-40 HR guy in TO. Nobody likes Smoak. But you take his 600 AB's in TO the last two years which is the equivalent of a full season he's got 77 R, 93 RBI and 32 HR. Pearce is a wild card. He stays healthy, he could be a solid bat. Those 3 cost about $21M a year. The same as Encarnacion plus two league minimum guys (Cecillani and Lake types). Which trio is better? Last year everyone wanted David Price. But instead we got 'stuck' with Happ and Estrada for $5M less. Really the replacement for Encarnacion is Tulowitski. He's going to move up in the order and he has to produce like a $20M a year player. He gets back to his high .300's OBP with ~30 HRs the Jays will be fine offensively.

    It seems to be the same thing every year. Everybody wants their team to sign the big free agents. Who were the big signings last year? And what did they do? 1. Jason Heyward signed 8 years - $184M and hit .230 with 7 HR and 11 SB. 2. Zack Greinke signed 6 years - $206M and went 4.37/1.273. 3. David Price signed 7 years - $217M and went 3.99/1.204. 4. Justin Upton signed 6 years - $132M and was below career norms every where but HR. Alex Gordon, Chris Davis also had down years. Those were the top 6 ranked that signed multi year contracts (Cespedes 3 year deal was really a 1 year deal). It appears the best value is in one year deals (Desmond, Cespedes, Fowler etc...) Jays gave Edwin a more than fair offer. He rejected it. Jays moved on. Fowler was overpaid. He is a solid player but he's getting paid like a superstar. Jays didn't have the prospects to get Adam Eaton. Not many did. He cost a boat load. Jays need left handed relievers but man that's a tough market. Cecil got $7+M a year for 4 years, Dunn got $6M+ for 3 years and Rzepcinski got $5M+ for 2 years. That's 5% of your budget on a guy who's going to pitch 2-3 times a week and sometimes just to one batter. And these 3 aren't even particularily good. What is the cost for Blevins, Logan, Wood? 3-4 years at $9-10M?

    Clash of Clans (Official thread)

    I just tried my first ever mass witch with a queen walk attack. Had an excellent plan. Zap quaked the multi inferno, got the queen with healers out on the left for her to walk clockwise, dropped a golem with 3 wiz behind on the right with a jump spell to walk the outer ring anti clockwise. Had 14 witches and my bk to attack the core. But then the effing queen walked anticlockwise, the golem walked the ring clockwise, they died before the skeles got there and it was a total disaster. Just terrible... At least I got the TH and right on 50%. But it was supposed to be so much better.
