    Ep 41: Dave McDonald - Less Than Risky

    Ep 41: Dave McDonald - Less Than Risky

    Dave (@RunDMcD) shares what he's learned through years of experience, about how to assess players' risks in fantasy baseball.

    1:45 Verlander, going into 2020

    6:00 How to think about taking a guy off your board completely

    9:35 Sale, Syndergaard, and Severino (don't draft guys who won't be playing)

    11:45 Taillon (it can take a while to get back your skills)

    18:10 deGrom (we can disagree on how much risk there is, but don't ignore it as a part of the assessment)

    27:40 Scherzer (we all see the risks, but we don't seem to know how to price them in)

    31:40 Strasburg (fear of the unknown plus the price...plus the fact that he's had injury issues all through the years)

    34:10 Lamet (he's injured now...plus, PRP means TJ a lot of the time)

    37:20 Carrasco (the risk/reward is a value at the price)

    40:30 Musgrove (going late enough to take a risk)

    43:35 Canning (after pick 300, go for upside)

    46:25 Stanton vs Buxton (price matters, many paths to value, UT downgrade, career IL days, paying for a career year, volume of injuries vs the type of injury -- both matter)
