    Hey is one of y'all the username of 'nastipasti' on draft kings?

  2. The reason onesie is more valuable in bestball is because you are accumulating points.

    1 thing you didn't mention is non-tournament Bestball. Those leagues are often total points and rookie values should tank, compared to anything with a playoff structure (or even a managed total points league where again you gain the advantage of a breakout).

    A lot of other differences all have tradeoffs that seem pretty equal. Example it is nice that WRs have a lower injury risk than RBs but this feels like it matters more in Bestball where at least for the first 14 weeks I care a lot about if my player misses 4-6 weeks while in redraft I care more about their projectable PPG in games I know they are playing and can string enough things together in the weeks I know they aren't that I can limit the damage particularly when far more teams tend to make the playoffs. On the other hand as you say 0 RB is also a lot easier in managed in many ways because I can make roster moves with the changing RB landscape and other players can't fill their last flex/WR spot via 3 projectable volume mid-low tier WRs who alternate spike weeks.

  4. Thank you for this video guys. I love best ball but people try and directly transfer those rankings to redraft and they’re def different

  5. Bookmarking to review again 2 weeks from now 😂🔥

  6. Mid round or early QB in redraft is best from the data I’ve seen.
