Ramblings: Interesting players with low ownership in Fantrax; How I prepped for my limited keeper draft;  (Sep 30)

The Fantasy Guide was updated eight times in the last three days. It’s going to get updated until Wednesday – or as late as Friday if something massive happens, but otherwise I will stop Wednesday afternoon. Just re-download the Guide when you want the latest one. I’m on top of the latest camp cuts, adjusting projections, making injury notes, and I’ve even moved the depth charts around as the news rolls in. I got your back!

Also, new this year: I launched this Guide in French. Please tell your French-speaking brethren that they can now pick up Le Guide des Poolers 2019-20 DobberHockey right here.

I had my first draft on Saturday. It’s a 14-team, 12-player keeper league that I’ve been in for about a decade (won three times, second twice) and it’s up against the gang at Forecaster magazine. It tracks points, but also gives a small percentage for PPPts, SOG, Hits and plus/minus. And any time you have a league with somewhat unique settings like that, with limited and not full keepers, the draft is all over the place. You want to take the young studs that play this year, but you also don’t want to overvalue young studs who aren’t playing this year since you can’t (or shouldn’t) keep them. People still do though. It was a 13-round draft and as always I had traded my picks 9th through 13th. This year was different in that I had also traded my 1st, 2nd and 8th rounders in a (failed) effort to make a charge to win last year.
