Read earlier in the thread. NZF describes how he platoons the two players. Obviously, it's not your traditional ML platoon, but it's working well for him. I think the numbers he posted above reflect the numbers his platoon has produced rather than just adding their splits.swyck wrote:j_d_mcnugent wrote:in certain situations the platoon is fine but it isnt for everyone. i really value having that extra roster spot. so you get a bargain by going with your platoon but you might also miss out on some pick ups, spot starts, etc. i avoided pierre but 'over draft' reyes/pods if you want to call it that. there's a whole dynamic that you are missing if you just compare one player vs. the platoon. you get a guy like pods and you can ignore speed the rest of the draft and you dont have to use additional roster spot for the platoon.
The other thing is that its not like a real platoon since they're not on the same team. They may both have good or bad matchups on the same day. You can't just use straight platoon numbers to see how good they would be doing.
The roster spot thing is a valid criticism, but the "don't have to worry about speed" thing really isn't; since NZF can just draft these two, he "doesn't have to worry about speed" either.
