Pena and Casilla for Napoli?

12 team H2H league. Without knowing anything else, do you think that is a fair offer?

Fantasy sports are ruled by the 50-50-90 rule...

Anytime you have a 50/50 choice between two players, 90% of the time, you'll get it wrong

I would be surprised if someone accepted Pena/Casilla for Napoli. Pena has a track record of power, poor average, and inconsistency. It is very unlikely he has changed. Casilla, though a solid arm, isn't necessarily destined long term to hang onto that job. They're both iffy pieces. Napoli, despite the average, has proven he could have a fantastic season. He's a top 3 catcher as well no matter how he's started.

If Napoli only had 1-2 HR and that bad average, then he could conceivably be worth those two guys. But he's still got the power and will likely bring that average up, so no, it's not that fair of a trade.

i honeslty think pena and napoli are pretty much the same.

.320 from napoli last year was a fluke.

I agree that the average was an anomaly. If I have both guys playing in a UTL or 1B spot, I still slightly prefer Napoli. But if I need Napoli to catch, I would much rather have him.
