Snell or Glasnow?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Snell or Glasnow?

Postby TheHoffmeister » Tue Apr 25, 2017 1:13 pm

Grey, et al...

Okay, this is more of a "What If?" question. I guess I was more drunk than I thought during my draft and I wound up with both Tyler Glasnow and Blake Snell on my team.

Both have that nebulous "upside" thing going on but it's like playing Russian Roulette every time I start them. If I'm perfectly honest, I haven't started Snell in over a week and I started Glasnow against the Yankees only because the Stream-o-nator liked it and that's no way to live, is it?

If I need to start making moves, like when Happ or Capps or Pederson come off the DL, which one should get dropped first? Drop them both?

This is a keeper league and I could keep Snell for a 20th Round pick or Glasnow for a 16th Round pick next year. That said, should I even wait?

Stream-o-Nator isn't crazy about either of them coming up this next week, but not a whole lot in the FA pool: Wade Miley, Kenta Maeda, Patrick Corbin, Andrew Triggs, Mike Leake, Robert Gsellman, Lance Lynn, Jimmy Nelson, Ian Nova, Kendall Graveman, Jordan Montgomery...

As always, thanks for the hard-hitting fantasy advice.

I'd lose both and grab Maeda and Snell

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

Grey,

I'm assuming you meant "Drop Glasnow and Snell and grab Maeda and Gsellman" right?

Since I can't actually drop and grab Snell at the same time...well, maybe that's actually possible, but let's not go there.
