currently sitting in 3rd/4th with about 80 points, about 20 points behind 1st/2nd.http://baseball.fantasysports.yahoo.com ... 2012-06-16
leading the league in HR and K, to make Grey happy.
pretty weak in SB/AVG/OPS/W.
middle of the road in the rest.
1st and 2nd are ahead of me in R and RBI, so if I gain points there, it's to their detriment. But I'm not confident I can catch them there based on the players available to me.
It looks like the shortest path to more points are in the OPS and SB category, but few players can get me both of those. (Ellsbury will.)
I just added Hughes and Nova for Ws, hopefully without too much hurt on my WHIP. And one day C Lee should get a W.
Two teams have basically quit already, so the free agent pool is deep:
R. Weeks, J. Weeks, B. Roberts, R. Roberts, A. Ramirez, Fowler, Francouer, Rasmus, Viciedo, Delmon, Espinosa, J.D. Martinez, Headley, Smoak, Scutaro, Beckham, Venable, Saunders, Campana, Colvin, Rosario, Aoki.
Scherzer, Worley, Parker, Samardjza, Doubront, Medlen, McCarthy
I've gained a lot of points in recent weeks, but seem to have plateaued. Obviously Ellsubry coming back should help, as could Markakis and Ross. (Actually, is Markakis any good?)
Right now my only strategy is to stream 2-3 positions a week based on who's hot and matchups, and hope that at least keeps me in 3rd. Anybody see any viable strategies for catching 2nd or 1st?
