See anything I am lacking?

Postby kingmike74 » Thu Mar 22, 2007 10:44 am

5x5 10 man ROTO.

I did my preseason (projections) league rankings and I am first as of now by projections. My league has a couple heavyweights and I feel that I am right with them so far, barring setbacks. The only cat I need help in eventually is saves and average. I know that I can change just a few things and help average but I will have to get a solid 3rd closer sometime before May. What do you think.

I grabbed Kouzmanoffand Gordon of the WW becuase rookies that do well seem to be great trade bait with the not so seasoned fantasy players.

That's a fine team. Only a few quibbles:

1. I don't like Molina at all. If he has any trade value based on name recognition, pull the trigger so long as the Rockies rookie or Napoli or Bard are still available for free.

2. I understand why you have Kouz, but this is the deepest 3B year I've ever seen (I put him below Edwin Encarnacion, who's a FA in my league, for instance). I don't think many people would consider him an upgrade. Concurrently, your OF is OK, but not great. Why not flip him for a rookie/young OF who could break out? Carlos Quentin, Chris B. Young, Corey Hart, Chris Duncan, Luke Scott, etc.

Hope this helps. Please take a look at mine: http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=260441

All the OF'ers you listed are on my WW and I find that OF'ers through the year are preatty easy to get. I actually like Molina to hit atleast 280 this year and that is all I am looking for from my second Catcher, since I am a HR leader right now in my league, atleast in preseason projections.

The WW only has LoDuca available and he is an upgrade in average but Molinas slight power far outweight the +20 points on the average.

Frank Thomas is a liability injury wise, but if he stays fairly ok, he could put out. Your starting rotation is great, but I'd take Alex gordon off the bench for Bob Howry

Just keep a very close watch on those guys. Even if I'm wrong on most of them, you'll still get a great player.
