Very Confused...Need Help!

Postby FrankieYankee » Wed Apr 16, 2008 12:48 pm

OK... this is my team.

C-Mauer
1B-Berkman
2B-Yunel Escobar
3B-Gordon
SS-Reyes
OF-Manny Ramirez
OF-Justin Upton
OF-Sizemore
Now here is the tough call.
Utility: Youkillis? Jeff Kent? Or Mark Reynolds? Everytime I start one, the other one produces.

What do I do? Do I put Kent at 2B? And bench Escobar? Then put Youkillis at utility? Then how bout Mark Reynolds? Bench Justin Upton, and put Berkman in the OF, then put Youkillis at 1B?

Im so confused, NEED HELP.

5X5 Roto- OPS instead of Avg.

Hope this helps some:

What I see is you're really workin with a few fringe fantasy guys that are prone to streakiness. I'm a sox fan and can tell you that Youk is an ideal #2 hitter, but unless your league tracks OBP, he's really not a solid fantasy option, especially because 1B/2B is so deep.

Your 2B situation is a little sketchy, well...i really mean Kent is a little sketchy..Yunel gives you some nice multi-positional help, but you don't really need that w/ Reyes lockin down the SS spot, so his value is a little lost on your team, but he's a nice 2B option due to a nice spot in the braves lineup. I expect him to outperform Kent this year... Kent is definitely downtrending.

I also have Mark Reynolds. I'm not sure what to make of his this year, I traded Dunn away for Guillen and picked up Reynolds to hopefully be an Adam Dunn redux and he sits soundly on my Util spot. Which is pretty much what I want out of my util spot, Pop.

So, it all comes down to needs, and in Roto, you just gotta hang in there. Dont worry about Youks seemingly uncanny ability to produce when dropped/benched, he's notorious for that. Stick w/ Escobar at 2B and slap Reynolds in the Util and if you can get anything for youk and/or kent...more power to ya.

If it's a 12 team league..then i wouldnt drop either of those guys since Escobar is no gaurantee and youk at least gives you backup at 1b and 3b should anything happen...he is a nice filler...

Good luck! Oh and hey.. a little help my way would be greatly appreciated!

I agree with Phorts, Youk is a solid baseball player but for fantasy he is not the greatest option. If your having this much trouble I would look to deal the streakiest guy and upgrade your pitching maybe, even though I don't know it. Any one of Youkilus, Kent or Reynolds could get you a decent arm like maybe Micah Owings, or a Gallardo, or look at closers maybe a George Sherrill.
