    FTP Ep. # 384: 2022 Premier League Preview

    Play Episode Listen Later Aug 4, 2022 40:44


    My thoughts on the upcoming Premier League season which should see some pretty stiff competition for the top 4 spots with some contenders on the outside looking in and a pretty steep drop-off from there despite the EPL being far and away the strongest league for soccer this year. Plus I dive into some of the props I would be looking at closer for the remainder of the season.

    My thoughts on the winners and losers of the MLB trade deadline and the importance it holds for the rest of the season. Pretty telling indictment of the league that over half of these teams are not even trying despite two wildcard spots in both leagues.

    My thoughts on what was a wild night in the NFL for Round 1 of the draft where we saw a number of questionable trades involving notable players around the league. Somehow the Packers did not move Jordan Love nor draft a WR and still did not make the list for the top 5 most questionable moves of the night. Sometimes you have to love the logic of this league.

    I give my thoughts on the tournament this year and while the vast majority want to be sentimental about Tiger Woods returning we also need to be a bit realistic with expectations. If the ownership is going to be as high as projected the full fade makes the most sense from a roster construction standpoint even on Fanduel imo. There are other ways to get ownership through showdown contests if he gets off to a good start but you have to take stands somewhere and this is an obvious example.

    We are finally approaching the delayed start to opening day in MLB and I have to ask how we came up with some of these win/loss projections as there are some clear outliers that make little sense if you were following closely last year.

    So in less than 24 hours, we have another terrible salary dump by the Cinncinati Reds that somehow the Yankees were unaware of that upgraded the Mariners roster more than what the Yankees received for giving up two MLB caliber position players. And people wonder why fans complain about Brian Cashman having as much of a lease as he has been given for decades.

    Yes, this is covering the Pro Bowl as too many people mess up their lineup construction even with the variance involved in a glorified pickup game. Sadly no 2 game slates this year extending into the SB so we don't have dead money in contests that loaded up on players in the Pro Bowl.
