I am in a 10-team head-to-head, points-based league (BA not included) with standard scoring mostly. I have a pretty solid squad, but our league only allows for 2 position reserve spots. I am looking to have one on the bench with some good upside or breakout potential, while the other is a more reliable replacement in case of slump or injury to a starter. Here is my current breakdown:
There are several good pickups on the waiver wire and I am trying to figure out if I am good where I am or if I should make some moves. Here are my top choices on waivers: Daniel Murphy, NYM; Drew Stubbs, CIN; Reimold, BAL; Alcides Escobar, MIL; Headley, SD; JJ Hardy, MIN; Austin Jackson, DET; LaPorta, CLE; Jake Fox, OAK.
A lot of bench bats on this team. Do you play 2 catchers? If not, I wouldn't mind dropping Doumit. He's constantly injured, and if you already have Soto there's really no reason in keeping Doumit around. Do you play with three UTIL? I wouldn't mind dumping Alex Gordon (currently injured, again, and a huge bust) and Loney (decent real-life player, but lacks power out of a 1B to be really fantasy relevant) and Prado (I like his skill-set, but for a 10-teamer he might be fringe-worthy of being roster-able). I would snatch up Stubbs, Reimold, and Alcides. For the others, I would put them on my watch list and make any necessary switches using F. Guit and V. Wells.
