OttoGraphs Episode 19: Player Profiles

In this episode of OttoGraphs, Tom and Joe try out a new format, digging a little deeper on some players who are especially relevant in ottoneu, as compared to some of the other fantasy formats. Joe breaks down the case for Josh Bell and Nick Franklin, who are just a few games away from locking in valuable positional eligibility for next year, while Tom takes a look at Aaron Judge and David Dahl, two top outfield prospects who have achieved varying levels of success in the big leagues so far. Plus, we discuss some guys who are so deep on the fantasy radar that they may actually be free agents in your ottoneu league, including Dan Vogelbach (owned in 62% of leagues) Scott Schebler (16%), Dario Alvarez (only 6%, an incredible feat in ottoneu’s extra-deep format!).

[Editor’s note – I promise we didn’t know Vogelbach was about to be called up when we recorded this over the weekend!]
