Regret After the Euphoria
The section focuses on suspect adds from the past weekend in the NFBC RotoWire Online Championship. These are 12-team roto leagues with 23-man rosters and seven bench spots.
My focus is to look to see if anyone was over-bid on (subjective, and honestly not likely at this point in the season) or had no way to live up to Sunday night expectations.
Joe Ryan: The hype around Ryan would have been out of hand if this were earlier in the season – I would not have been surprised one bit to see him go for over $100 in leagues with a $1000 budget. It's just not a profile I want to rely on every week. He has a 91-mph fastball that he threw over 70% of the time in his debut. Additionally he's always been a flyball pitcher, so he's going to run high home-run rates. When making bids this past weekend, I prioritized several other pitchers over him.
