The #MatScoutsDynasty League Draft is set for Wednesday October 12, 2022. To get not only the 10 members of this Dynasty League set for the draft, we thought we would share some insights to our rosters for the general public.
Assessments, Critiques, and Opinions welcomed.
Next Up - The Incredible Bulks.
Team Manager: John Foster (JohnFosterUSA)
2022 Regular Season Standings:
Dual Record: 10-5
Points For: 776
Points Against: 947 (-171 Difference)
Total Points: 776
77.5 Team Points (9th Place)
The Incredible Bulks strung together four straight dual wins to start the season in 2022 before hitting a couple losses going into our "Bye Week." After that it was a consistent win week followed by a loss week, but came up big winning his last two duals to take the 3rd Place Dual Standings.
Now, anything can happen with the draft, but the trade with Team Gould has all the familiar symptoms of the man behind the "Big-Man Breakdown" column for MatScouts taking the #1 overall recruit in 285 Nick Feldman (OHST), but anything can happen at the draft!
Leading up to the draft, The Incredible Bulks traded the #2 Overall Pick, 157 Austin O'Connor (UNC), and 157 Andrew Cerniglia (NAVY) to Team Gould for #1 Overall Pick and 197 Luke Surber (OKST).
As it currently sits, The Incredible Bulks have 9 open roster spots (30 max per team)
A pretty well-rounded roster with lots of upside. Only two seniors comprise this team with possibly half the starters being Sophomores.
125, 197, and even heavyweight look good for the next three years, though depth at heavyweight for fantasy would be a welcomed addition (hint hint possibly?). Two years of a perennial title contender with David Carr (and last year's #4 Fantasy Wrestler at 157) with wildcard pinner Tanner Cook behind him look to have that weight on lockdown.
That said, there are some immediate needs for the upcoming season that this draft might be able to help with.
Immediate attention is needed for 157 and 184. Jason Kraisser will be in a roster battle with the other 11 or so wrestlers on ISU's 157 roster and David Key, at 184 last season, did not qualify for Nationals. A new year and a clean slateâ€¦ but if The Incredible Bulks stay put, my magic 8 ball reads "outlook not so good."
