What to do with Votto...?

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

What to do with Votto...?

Postby ohbilly2134 » Tue Sep 04, 2012 2:27 pm

This is a true dilemma for me. I've waited a couple of months for Votto to return, and we all know how productive he is when he plays every day.

However, it's been noted that the Reds, considering their sizable lead in the division, may rest him some down the stretch. Votto's also admitted that he won't be 100% the rest of the year.

I'm in the first round of my league's playoffs currently, and want to know what I should do with him. I don't have any roster room to pick up a spare 1B when Dusty keeps him out of the lineup. Should I go ahead and drop him and just stream 1B for the rest of the year, using guys available on WW, such as:

Dunn
Morneau
I. Davis
Carter
Rizzo
Youk
Morales
Moreland
Moss

OR, do I play Votto and just take the 0-fers when he doesn't play?

Thanks!

I'd go with Youk and stream 1B...

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.
