11th pick each round in a straight draft. 12 team 5x5 roto with IP instead of K. Limited to 10 FA pickups all year. (Round)

C: Rosario (9)
C: Martin (23)
1b: Goldschmidt (3)
2b: Infante (25)
SS: Rutledge (15)
3b: Aramis Ramirez (5)
MI: Simmons, A (21)
CO: Freeman, F (6)
OF: McCutchen (1)
OF: Jones, A (2)
OF: Aoki, N (10)
OF: Cuddyer (16)
OF: Ludwick (19)
UT: Hosmer (8)

P: Wainwright (4)
P: Scherzer (7)
P: Samardzija (11)

P: Burnett (18)
P: Maholm (20)

UT: Madson (27)
UT: Segura (28)
UT: Gee, D (29)
UT: Doubront (30)
UT: Donaldson (31)
UT: Leake, M (32)
UT: Duda (33)
UT: Alburquerque (34)
UT: Boggs, M (35)

My thoughts. I am a touch light on power and could use 1-2 more SP to rotate in and out. Probably have too much relief pitching but can use it as trade bait or to avoid using FA picks on them. Would love thoughts on my weaknesses and strengths.

I think you nailed it for the most part. I might be a little worried about your infield in just overall production. SP I think you will be fine on especially if you stream some pitchers in the last couple spots.

Thanks...agree on the infield. Waited one round too long on Gyorko. Will likely move Rutledge to 2B once he becomes eligible there (5 games played) and start Segura for the speed which I could use and watch the waiver wire. Will be interesting to see how things play out.

Innings pitched instead of K's? I think that would hurt Max Scherzer's value quite a bit.

You look really light on power. Mccutchen and Jones are well rounded but not exactly hr kings. Everyone else won't even touch 30. But your other hitting stats should be decent. Hopefully you get the rbis. Ip instead of k sounds awful boring though. I would try to trade a sp for a heavier hitter by may. Rough guess of maybe 250 hrs? I would want 280-300 with that many hitters. Hrs lead to rbis and runs too.

@Bourne
I think you are right on power, I do feel light there though from my projections which I based on Steamer with some PT modifications I project closer to 280 which had me 5th among the other teams. Another bat would certainly help. I debated between Jones and Bautista in round 2 but just did not trust Bautista's wrist enough to risk the added power.

@Slaught
200 IP is usually what I target for top tier starters and I have Scherzer projected for 195 so he shouldn't lose too much value.

The IP category actually makes it more fun for me. Because so much value is placed on K's in the pre-season rankings there is the opportunity to find undervalued pitcher's who may have low K projections.
