Please Rate my 11 Team 5X5 Roto TEAM!!!! (WHIR)

Postby Nails86 » Wed Mar 25, 2009 11:30 pm

Well here it is buddies:
11 teams, last year of a 5X5 keeper. Finished first 2 years ago and 3rd last year.

My strategy is to pick up closers as the season goes instead of wasting top picks for them. I will get them either through trades (where I dont have to give full value) or on the waivers as closers get hurt/lose their job.

I dont like keeping too many bats on the bench so I am looking to package Atkins and Dye for a top 20 pitcher. (move Figgins to CI and Ibanez/Hafner/Bradley to DH.

What do you guys think? What moves do I need to make here?

Leave a link and I'll gladly help you guys out. Roto 5X5 is my expertise but I can try to help in other types of leagues too. Thanks buds!

Thanks for your help on mine.

I was in a 5X5 Roto league for 3 years, and won it all 3 years. Half the league was competitive (12 team league), half of it wasn't.

Anywho, do you start a MI? If so, you really need to fill it first.

I'll let you in on what my strategy for ROTO was. I simply gave away the saves, and stocked my pitching staff with starters only. This allowed me to finish 1st in wins and K's, and allowed me to mix my pitchers with those with low WHIPs along with those with high Ks (not always the same, eh?).

I simply kept watch on the trends of starters who were not the top drawer pitchers, and pick them up when a streak was starting.

My recommendation: Pick up the best MI you can get, and load up on the SPs.

Good luck!

I'll be honest, I would trade Dye, Ibanez and Bradley, I can't trust Dye yearly production, it's all over the place on week MVP candidate next week past his prime, Ibanez is consitant but no excitement there, Bradley is brittle, you could use a back up SS, maybe take a look at Andrus in Texas. Pitching staff looks good, Duch may be done already as he is struggling with some arm issues this spring.

Help with mine?
