Moustacheball NFBC Update – 13th place, moving on up

On August 4th I made my first NFBC update and noted I was in 1st place in my league and 18th place overall.  Over the last 18 days I’ve managed to get as close as 9th in the overall, but currently sit at 13th place after Kershaw’s masterpiece last night.  Matt Kemp is no longer pulling his weight but Clayton sure is.

I wanted to make this post because I have a huge weekend coming up. The Marlins are headed to Colorado and I’m able to start an all Marlin outfield this weekend with Stanton / Ozuna / Yelich. While I expect them to do some serious work against the Rockie rotation I’m very nervous about some big gambles I’m taking in the pitching department.

Over the last two weeks I’ve acquired Carlos Carrasco and Danny Salazar with via FAAB and I’m starting both of them this weekend against the Astros.  I doubt any of the teams in front of me are doing the same thing so I may be sinking or swimming with these picks.

I still have plenty of run left in WHIP /ERA / SB  / Runs while I’m near the top in HR / RBI so I’ve sat Matt Kemp this weekend as his August has been very ordinary and I can’t have ordinary right now.

Here’s to hoping it looks better come Monday

    Had no idea Carrasco was having such a good year. What I get for sitting this fantasy season out.

    I was gonna ask the other day how active you are with acquisitions at this point in the season, but that probably answers my question

    • Hoping Carlos is the typical story of failed prospect as a starter, finds himself as the long man, comes back to rotation and fulfills original destiny.
