People have been giving me grief over the last few days for my Carmona acquisition. Spending some time over the weekend trying to sort out, what I think, are the most capable pitchers left on my league's waiver wire, I have assembled the below ranking. The basis for the ranking is not Ks, CGs, WHIP etc.--it is simply the order in which I would select pitchers off the wire, irregardless of who/where they are playing, but who I think will have the most points at the end of the season as per my H2H points league.
My question is: I'm curious as to how other people would rank the following pitchers based solely on who will accumulate the most fantasy points this season. How off am I?
Duchscherer, Wade Davis, Carmona, Ian Kennedy, Cueto, Chris Young, Clayton Richard, Strasburg, Gio Gonzalez, Homer Bailey, Chapman, Marcum
If E. Santana is in the mix, then I'd go:
12-teamer, H2H, points, 4 keepers.
Hitters: +1 single, +2 dbl, +3 trpl, +4 HR, +1 RBI, +1 run, +1 BB/HBP, -1 K, +2 SB, -1 CS
Pitchers: +1.5 IP, +1 K, -1 BB/HBP, +5 W, -3 L, +4 S, -2 BS, +3 CG, +10 shutout
Start one player at each position + utility, 4 SPs, 2 RPs. 8 reserves.
C: W. Ramos
1B: J. Bautista
SS: E. Aybar
OF: Dickerson, Holliday, Adam Jones
U: one of Adrian Gonzalez, Longoria, Blackmon or Pedroia
SP: Wainwright, Iwakuma, Sonny Gray, Cobb
RP: Kimbrel, F. Rodney
Bench: Kennedy, Arrieta, Liriano, Volquez, Vogelsong
