So, I started Nolan Arenado at 3B today on FD cash games, and, well, it looks like so did everybody else! I’m not complaining … just curious … I’m in a bunch of head to heads and glancing at the scores after the homer I’d say 30-40% have Arenado … and the one 21-player matrix I’m in, 48% Arenado.
Now, I use this forum, and mostly for the Kevin Roth weather updates, and I do use some daily spreadsheets using fangraphs and swish tables and stuff to pick my players, and I have a projection set, but not one of the public ones …
And, I mean, I had 3 or 4 guys on my list for the price at 3B, and really only barely ended up with Arenado.
My question is how to 48% of other people end up at the same conclusion?
There were better plays, especially in the OF, and they are not 50% owned … … …
Or does everybody know something I don’t, and I just got lucky?
I hate seeing high ownership like that because if you don’t have Arenado, you’re significantly behind the 8-ball in double-ups. If he hits another one you’re pretty much toast.
With 30 options on a full slate I can’t see how ANYBODY can be 48% owned. That’s just insane.
Some twitter Roster God or some really popular tout or several of them have him highlighted today or something? I don’t read ANY of that stuff almost, I’m totally on an island when it comes to hitter/pitcher research … so I’m just curious, what happened here?
I’ve seen it before with Donaldson, but … Arenado’s not Donaldson, there were some days where he was like $3100-$3400 on FD and just so far beyond any other 3B option. Several of them, LOL.
