Episode 260: Of Success And Regrets, Also FAAB

April 23rd, 2021

Back to whatever constitutes normal for the podcast this week Mike, Jon, and Samuel start the show with a discussion on the art of FAAB. They then tackle players that they feel are succeeding early, and players that are not showing out as expected and even pushed pre draft season. There’s a lot of interesting discussions in here, both about the specific players and general fantasy analysis.

Episode 258: 4(0) Injuries And Sponsored Funerals

April 9th, 2021

It’s a baseball podcast! With the season a week or so old Mike, Jon, and Samuel talk through what feels like(but maybe isn’t) a large amount of injuries to open the 2021 season. The lads talk you through how to handle that from a FAAB and season strategy, and also somehow end up discussing sponsored funerals before finishing up with closers. It’s a wild ride, but informative nevertheless.

Episode 253: Outfielders, That’s Their Problem

March 5th, 2021

A bit of a change as positional week rounds into the backstretch. Mike, Jon, and Samuel eschew their normal format for a more free flowing discussion of all things outfield. Topics include is Mike Trout overrated, is there too much wish casting in the higher outfield tiers, where the best value in all of fantasy this year might be, and how to handle the lower end of outfield possibilities. All that and more on Outfield Week!

They break down a position that is top light, but deep through the middle, and explore some off the wall options in the grab bag tier. As you get ready for your drafts, this is as essential content as we make throughout the year.
