It seems like the last week has lasted all year, things have taken quite a turn. This time last year I was blissfully writing about Razzball Commenter Leagues ADP and wondering how I was going to manage all these drafts coming up. Now, we’re not really sure what the future holds for our silly little game. The only thing we do know is that we have at least two weeks and likely much longer to wait until MLB Opening Day. In the meantime, while we’re all being home-bodies we’ll do the only thing we can do until we hear “Play Ball” and that’s draft and talk about drafts. We’ve already taken a handful of leagues that hadn’t filled and moved their drafts into the two week window MLB has given us. We’re drafting into the first weeks of April now, so sign up for another league or two to give yourself something to do the next few weeks. Just make sure to Lysol the laptop in between uses and stay safe out there friends. Remember, this is about keeping those most vulnerable safe, so do your part people. Now, let’s dive into another week’s worth of draft data and see what info we can glean.
This week we’re going to look at Razzball’s favorite SAGNOF specialists and where you can draft some late steals and saves. For steals, we’ll take a look at every player that Grey has projected for more than 20 SBs. For Saves, I’ll just grab as many closers and potential closers as I can think of. If I miss a name, feel free to open up the RCL ADP SPREADSHEET that I maintain for all of your viewing pleasure. I’ve seen plenty of anonymous animals with that spreadsheet open and I’d consider it a great resource during your RCL drafts. You can also just copy out the data to your own Excel sheet and use it in your own War Room if that tickles your fancy. Enjoy and deity of choice speed.
WE DON’T NEED NO STINKIN’ NFBC ADP
We’ve got RCL ADP! Here’s a list from our 28 league sample of some players whose ADPs I was curious about and some general notes.
|Ronald Acuna Jr.||1.11||1||2||1|
|Fernando Tatis Jr.||17.39||8||31||23|
You’ve got five shots to draft some decent speed in the first two rounds. After that I’m looking to snag either a speedy middle infielder in Mondesi or Bichette or trying to grab a swift outfielder in Robert or Robles. If you’ve really messed things up from pick 100-200 you have nine more chances to grab some steals. I’ve been targeting Mercado in this range if I have a need, but with the start of the season delayed Oscar could see his ADP rising since he’ll presumably be healthy by then. This will be something I cover next week as we look into some Pre/Post COVID ADPs. Tommy Edman and Elvis Andrus are a couple more middle infielders I’m looking to grab in the later rounds for a speed boost. Edman especially has found his way onto a few of my teams so far. If you really punt steals, Margot, Dyson and DeShields haven’t even been drafted in an RCL yet, which means there’s plenty of speed on the wire if needed.
Mr. Hader is the cream of the crop, but everyone in the top 100 is fine and dandy. They are also, not really SAGNOF. Should you miss or skip one of these closers, I’m loving the trio of Kenley, Hand and Rogers. I’m not really welcoming Edwin Diaz back with open arms this year like some of you. I’ll pass thanks. Raisel Iglesias and Nick Anderson are frequent targets of mine, as are Alex Colome and Archie Bradley. Beyond those four, it’s a bit of a mess, but Giovanny Gallegos seems to be worth grabbing for a few saves and some likely strikeouts. Kintzler, Givens, Watson and Davis aren’t even drafted in some leagues, so check your wire for some possible free saves out there, if you think your ratios can handle it.
TO JOIN A LEAGUE
Click the LINK in the ‘League Link’ column (see below grid) for the time you want and YOU’RE IN. Damn, that’s too easy. Oh, I guess I should also mention make sure you’re joining a league for free or for money, depending on your preference. If you want a league for money, then 1) Click the link. 2) Pay the money. That’s it! No pesky third requirement! Again, Fantrax and Razzball take no money. You can join as many free or paid leagues as you like. To quit a league, go to OTHER –> All Options –> Quit League (located at the bottom). Now go join some leagues!
