My playoff pitching strategy might work?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Lester vs @ Sea
Wandy vs Hou

Those are both nice starts. But Lester at SEA is a great start. So I guess I keep Lester

Now....the FA 2-starters

Matt Harvey (2-3, 2.75, 36 IP, 43 K/ 15 BB) 9/3 @ STL – Kelly 9/9 vs ATL – Hanson

Mike Fiers (7-6, 2.97, 93.2 IP, 96 K/ 22 BB) 9/3 @ MIA – Nolasco 9/8 @ STL – Westbrook

Ross Detwiler (7-6, 3.25, 127.1 IP, 79 K/ 35 BB) 9/3 vs CHC – Samardzija 9/8 vs MIA – Nolasco

Miguel Gonzalez (5-3, 3.66, 66.1 IP, 49 K/ 25 BB) 9/3 @ TOR – Happ 9/8 vs NYY – Hughes
Jason Vargas (13-8, 3.75, 180 IP, 111 K/ 45 BB) 9/3 vs BOS – Buchholz 9/9 vs OAK – Ross
Jeff Samardzija (8-11, 4.09, 151.2 IP, 153 K/ 54 BB) 9/3 @ WAS – Detwiler 9/8 @ PIT – Burnett

I like Harvey's two-start next week.

Do you agree and if so, drop Wandy for Harvey?

Or just look for another RP for Wandy?

Or just roll with Wandy?


I'd roll with Wandy vs. Houston...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Drop Lester? If so, perhaps another RP?

There are only 2 players I like on FA for RP:

Glen Perkins (Min - RP) and Brandon League (LAD - RP)

I would then have 3 RPs rolling for some SV and only one for HLD.

I look on FA for HLD players, but there are nothing that looks safe for me.

What says you?

I need to play it safe if I do this. One blow up and there goes my ratios.

Jonathan Broxton (Cin - RP) looked interesting but I see some blows ups this year and that scares me

H2H - Mixed, 12 teams, Daily, W-L-T
