Hitters to bump up in BB+OPS roto

Postby silverZ » Tue Mar 02, 2010 10:33 am

Who are some non-obvious hitters to target in a 7x7 league with BB and OPS?

Good list, thanks. Any other late round options?

Helton, Swisher, and N. Johnson can all be had pretty late...only other guy I can think if is J. Cust. He had a down year last season in terms of OPS., but he should get you 90-100 BB's and I expect his OPS to rebound a bit back to around .840.

One more I guess...Overbay had a high walk rate last season (14.8%), but I don't know how much he's going to play...plus that was above his career norms. He could be someone to watch.

higher round: dunn, abreu, uggla, carlos pena
later round: helton, cust, jd drew (when healthy), thome (if he ends up with a full time gig. or platoon him with someone)

After taking a look at last years BB totals I see a couple more guys worth a slight bump...Scutaro, Cameron, Span, Fowler.

How about a list of players I should bump down? Obviously examples would be Ichiro, Crawford, Ellsbury, Rollins...low ops low walks.

In general speedy contact hitters who don't draw walks should be ranked down. Not only do they not contribute much to BB's or OPS (typically), but SB's are not as valuable with 7 offensive categories. Ellsbury, Ichiro, Crawford, Rollins, Phillips, Cano, A. Jones...these guys should be marked down, though Cano has a nice OPS he almost never walks...

I would avoid B. Molina, M. Olivo, and knock down K. Suzuki for catchers.
