    Great job as always guys. Now that the season is winding down, would love some full season numbers on these guys as well as your thoughts on keepers, sleepers, and filler…basically a reassessment of the prospects now that the season is over.

      Planning on doing some prospect-related lookbacks at the season in the coming weeks, particularly once the postseason is over. I’ll have a bunch of extra time on my hands with DoTF over lolol
