I need help with my team.

Postby midwestpatsfan » Wed Mar 05, 2008 3:47 pm

I have not drafted yet but I did not see a forum for pre-draft help, so if this is in the wrong place, I am sorry.

I play in a little more complicated league than the typical 5x5 league and I need help with who I should pick in the first few rounds. It is an 8 player league and the categories we use for positional players are:
Runs, 2B's, 3B's, HR, RBI, BB, K's, SB, AVG., and Errors.
I have the 5th pick, so I am basically right in the middle. I am struggling on whether to pick Jimmy Rollins or Chase Utley in the first.
So, who would you take and depending on that choice, where should I look in the next couple of rounds after that?

Utley in the first. I'd go with next best hitter next two rounds, then see best available SP in 4th.
Fantasy player since '99.

In a standard 5x5 the answer is clear, and its Utley. This is tough in your league, because I haven't done much research on Errors, or K/BB specifically (though I've looked a little at OBP) Utley had more doubles last season than Rollins and played 30 less games. Basically they are even in every category except SBs (Rollins leads by 20-25) AVG (Utley leads by about 25-30 points) and Triples (Rollins leads by 6-10). Like I said I'm not completely sure on K's and BB's, but I think Utley is the better pick as 2B is a wasteland, especially if you add in errors.

Thanks to both people who have responded so far. I was thinking the same thing. Utley is clearly the best 2b and after him there is not much. I was also thinking I could pick up a guy like Tulowitzki or Jeter in round 5 or 6 and get good production.
