First Time Playing, Looking for Some Advice

Postby lane_anasazi2 » Fri Apr 06, 2007 1:52 am

5x5 standard scoring, Head to Head, 14 team league. About half are new to fantasy, and the other half have moderate to substantial experience. I fall into the first category.

Here's what I've got:

C Chris Iannetta
1B Todd Helton
2B Jose Lopez
3B Ryan Zimmerman
SS Jhonny Peralta
OF Carl Crawford
OF J.D. Drew
OF Torii Hunter
UTL Travis Hafner
Bench - Kevin Youkilis, Michael Cuddyer, Scott Hairston

SP Carlos Zambrano
SP Felix Hernandez
RP Jonathan Papelbon
RP Joel Zumaya
P Solomon Torres
P Andy Pettite
P A.J. Burnett
BN Jeff Francis
BN (been switching this around trying to get wins this week)

1. How'd I do?
2. General strategy question...how often should I be switching players based on daily scores with a weekly matchup in mind? How do I go about evaluating players to add/drop?
3. Etiquette - do most people bench their starters if they're going up against their team? (bench Indians for the next 4 days if I'm a Mariners fan, for example)

Been really enjoying this so far - lots of fun. I'd love some general advice or links to head to head specific strategy articles...I feel like I don't have a great grasp of that yet.

Thanks,
-Lane
