Hey, so i'm in a 10 team, H2H, 6X6 w/holds and OPS, 6 keepers. I've been on this forum for a few years now, but I'm posting this under an alt. username b/c one of my league mates (who knows my username) uses this forum frequently, and I don't want to be giving away any secrets.
Here are my keepers:
Anyway, I have a great core of keepers heading into the draft in a few days, and I would like some advice on how to proceed. I first have to tell you about one issue I will be having this season. I will be traveling from week 2 until week 7, and when I say traveling, I mean living in tents in a village of about 100 people in Oaxaca without a reliable source of electricity. Obviously, I wont be able to manage my team for a good 1/4 of the season, and I would like some opinions on how to go about my draft. Specifically, my pitching. Since we have daily lineup changes, I feel I need to think outside the box to stay competitive.
Since it's a holds league, wins, K's and all of the other categories are weighted less, and I was thinking of drafting all my offense, then loading up on closers and setup guys and (focusing on the ones who maintain low whip/era averages). I'll throw in a few steady low whip/era SP's whose downside would be too few K's like lowe, wainwright, harden, and baker. I'd essentially be punting wins and strikeouts which I feel I'd have no chance winning with me being away for so long, and would have a near lock in saves, and holds and be in good position to be competitive in era and whip.
I figure when i come back, I can upload some of my extra batting/closer for a starter or two... maybe find a mid season callup off the WW, and try to re-balance out my squad. Hopefully, I wont be too far out of first place/playoffs when I return. I dunno, let me know if I am overthinking, but I feel like if I stick to my plan of building a team the way I normally would I could be too far out of contention at two months into the season.
Thanks guys, gimme some thoughts, and leave your link.... I always answer in return.
