i’m in a NFBC style mixed league this year where i literally forgot about steals on draft day. was sitting there looking at my team after it was over and was like, “… wait a minute… i drafted braun and granderson 1-2… and those are literally my only two 20-steal guys. hmm”
but i picked up revere, everth and rajai davis and it’s cool now
people are always yelling at you not to pay for saves, but i find it a lot less frustrating and more reliable to lock up 3 or 4 closers on draft day and then play the wire from a position of strength. steals, on the other hand, really are free. as long as you draft enough power to reserve a couple lineup slots for punchless rabbits, new ones always emerge during the season.
