Just wondering when everyone starts to get aggressive in filling their needs?



For example, last year, I looked at pre season projections and my team was very low in batting average and I decided to wait 2 months to pursue it an my the time June rolled around I was second in average.



Right now, I am showing that I am ranked as follows on offense in a 14 team league, should I start now or wait to use trades to gain in categories, based on projections?



AVG- 5th

HR- 11th

RBI- 12th

RUNS- 13th

SB's- 6th



I used Razz rankings and 90% off the time I took the highest value player possible according to position need. Granted the projections I use for determining where I rank pre season are CBS, but still.....

14 team 5x5 roto


C- AJ Pierzynzki
1B- Adrian Gonzalez
2B- Clint Barmes
SS- Alexei Ramirez
3B- David Wright
MI- Ian Desmond
CI- Carlos Pena
OF- BJ Upton
OF- Nick Markakis
OF- Adam Jones
OF- Alex Rios
OF- Travis Snider
U- Vladimir Guerrero
U- (Flavor of the week) Brendan Ryan right now

DL- Carlos Beltran

Most reserves are pitchers but I do have 7 reserve spots and Tyler Colvin is my only reserve hitter.

I did not plan on owning Pena or Beltran but Pena at pick 99, and Beltran at pick 211 was to hard to pass on.

If you're hurting that bad in a category, there's no reason to wait around. Depends on how obvious your needs are.

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.

Does my offense really look like it could finish that low in some categories? I do not think it does. Of course basing my study on the CBS sytem rankings might not be the best tool.

I will calculate every teams rosters to see wherre I stand using multiple projection tools.

11th isn't good in power. Yes, your team doesn't look strong there.
