Good stuff Goose, will wait for the podcast to see the picks, saw my and Corys boy E5 on there though!🙂

Know you say to start Lee today, but in a 10 team roto its not crazy to bench right? Noticed he’s never pitched there before too suprisingly, might take some adjustments and could be ugly early on until he adapts.


Not crazy, but I’d still say pitch.
