1st Time Fantasy-er, Problems With Offense, Help!

Postby Eliot227 » Sat Apr 24, 2010 10:20 pm

Ok, here is the team I drafted:

C Matt Wieters

1B Adrian Gonzalez

2B Chase Utley

3B Pablo Sandoval

SS Alexei Ramirez

2B/SS Rickie Weeks

1B/3B Carlos Pena

OF Matt Holliday

OF Adam Lind

OF Andrew McCutchen

OF Brad Hawpe

OF Jay Bruce

UTIL Jason Heyward

For my match-up in Week 1, these were my team's stats:

88/290, 52 Runs, 18 HRs, 39 RBIs, 5 SBs, .303 AVG, .388 OBP (we count OBP)

I went 5-1 in those categories, lost SBs 10-5.

I had an idea after week 1 that I would trade for some big HR/RBI guys and try to guarantee myself wins in those categories while scrapping SBs, since I lost in week 1 with 5 anyway and I already had power guys. So I traded around and had a different team week 2.

This was my team for weeks 2/3:

C Matt Wieters

1B Mark Teixeira

2B Rickie Weeks

3B Pablo Sandoval

SS Alexei Ramirez

2B/SS Jhonny Peralta

1B/3B Carlos Pena

OF Matt Holliday

OF Adam Lind

OF Raul Ibanez

OF Jason Heyward

OF Kyle Blanks

UTIL Ryan Howard

BE Jay Bruce

Week 1 Stats: 64/284, 38 Runs, 9 HRs, 48 RBIs, 2 SBs, .225 AVG, .331 OBP

My record for week 1 was 3-2-1

With 1 day and a couple at-bats left, this is what week 3 looks like:

53/223, 27 Runs, 7 HRs, 28 RBIs, 1 SB, .238 AVG, .323 OBP

My record this week is 0-5-1, tied in HRs

I don't know if my guys have just collectively had 2 terrible weeks or if I did a terrible job setting up my team. I did plenty of calculations with predicted stats, last season stats, etc, and I didn't see a noticeable drop in any category compared to the drops I've seen as results the past two weeks. Did I screw something up? Have I just had two bad weeks? What's going on?!

Any advice/opinion is appreciated.
