On the 32nd episode of the DFA podcast, Bryan and R.J. take a left turn from their recent discussions about good teams to talk about a bad one: the San Diego Padres. Sure, they talk a bit about Clayton Richard's extension, but it's mainly an excuse to talk about the interesting young players on the Friars' roster and their fascinating skipper, Andy Green.

Welcome back to the DFA podcast! Hosts Bryan Grosnick (Baseball Prospectus) and R.J. Anderson (CBS Sports), plus producer Shawn Brody (Beyond the Box Score, BP Mets), are talking about all the transactions and roster moves that make MLB go. From trades and signings to callups and disabled list stints, DFA is here to provide analysis and commentary on all things baseball.

George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre outline their strategic approaches to the fantasy playoffs including: relying on studs that got you there versus riding the hot hand and several useful wavier wire targets. They also banter about Rhys Hoskins insane hot streak, Victor Robles long-term potential, and some names to target in keeper and dynasty formats. Finally, they take a quick look ahead to 2018 by debating Giancarlo Stanton’s fantasy value.

George Bissell, Mike Gianella and Bret Sayre outline their strategic approaches to the fantasy playoffs including: relying on studs that got you there versus riding the hot hand (8:00) and several useful wavier wire targets in Luis Valbuena (14:30), Kyle Gibson (15:30), Nick Castellanos (17:00), Jeimer Candelario (19:00) and Nick Williams (20:00). They also banter about Rhys Hoskins insane hot streak (20:30), Victor Robles long-term potential (23:30), and some names to target in keeper and dynasty formats over the final few weeks like Willie Calhoun, Wilmer Difo, Dominic Smith, Matt Chapman, Marwin Gonzalez and Raul Mondesi (27:00). Finally, they take a quick look ahead to 2018 by debating Giancarlo Stanton’s fantasy value (33:00).
