Re: Draft Strategy- Expensive closers

12-team league, c, 1b,2b,3b,ss, 3 of, 2 util. Roto, 1400 inning limit, everything else standard. There was a ton of competition to get closers from the waivers last year due to them being so "overvalued". Basically whenever I lucked into one I'd trade and trade him for an upgrade.

Draft Strategy- Expensive closers

I did a mock auction draft yesterday in preparation for my real draft, and all the closers were going for $3-6 more dollars than they should (and I refuse to pay too much for saves). There was a major run of cheap Brain Freeze closers going for $5-8, and bench hitters/Util/5th starters were going fo...

Optimal razzball team

Hey everyone, I'm trying to plan my draft (12-team, standard roto settings) using Grey's rankings and yahoo's auction average cost values. I've been able to draft something like this in several mocks, does this sound like a good strategy or should I change something? Hitting: $190 C- Jonathan Lucroy...

Trade for Reyes

I've been offered Reyes for my Asdrubal Cabrera and Lance Berkman. I'm in first place currently with a balanced team. Usually I take the best player in the deal whenever I can, but does this hurt my power too much to add extra speed I don't need? Team in sig.

Thanks.

Temporary SS replacement

So Asdrubal will be gone for 5 more days it sounds like. Should I drop Niese, Duda or Reimold for 5 days of stats from Alexei Ramirez or Rafael Furcal? Or just take the 5 days of no stats at SS?

Re: Trade for Stanton

Yeah, I'm still torn. I usually try to take the best player in the deal, but I'm worried there's much more risk that Espinosa might not work out and it'd be harder to find another 2B. I'll probably just hold for a few weeks to see what happens based on this lukewarm response

Re: Trade for Stanton

No one really. He took Allen Craig at the end of the draft for some reason, so he needs a 2B. He's not interested in Espinosa.

Trade for Stanton

I was offered Mike Stanton for Dan Uggla and Shane Victorino. I have Espinosa I got for $1 on my bench, so basically my lineup would be stanton and espinosa instead of uggla and victorino. Take the best player or too much for stanton?

Thanks

.5 PPR Trade Greene/Bowe

I'm in a .5 PPR league, and I like my RB depth but am more worried about my WR come bye weeks. Would you trade Shonn Greene for Dwaye Bowe straight up? KC will have to throw more (but may score less), so I'm trying to reevaluate how good Bowe will be. Thoughts?

Trade Adrian Peterson?

I had first pick and took Adrian Peterson, Nicks, and Wallace with my first three picks. Another team drafted Andre Johnson and Mendenhall, I'm thinking of offering AP + Nicks or Wallace for his first two picks, which team do you think has a better WR/RB combo?
