I am in the 2nd year of a 11 team ESPN Roto keeper league, I toom over the team midseason last so didn't have much talent to keep.

I figured that if I drafted decently and watched closely on the WW I could be competitive, but really and struggling with Injuries and mediocre pitching. And with the bench depth our WW is thin outside of OFs and Catchers

Scoring: Runs/HR/RBI/SB/AVG/OPS

i've never been in a league where holds and saves were counted the same.. thats pretty crazy. I don't see the point in ever keeping any of your closers and then wasting any draft pick in the upcomming drafts for this keep league on closers. you can stock up on 1 more hitter in a spot where you would draft someone like a heath bell in future drafts and then go with the hot hand with holds.

i don't really like gordon beckham very much so you might want to wait till he gets hot and then package him with one of your outfielders for a stronger MI or CI since you have nelson cruz comin back( hes looking like a series 30/20 possability)

you also have 3 sp from the rays who start in a row.. garza niemann price.. you might want to trade one of them maybe garza or price both who have gotten off to great starts for a hitter. your MI and CI spots need upgrading 2b and 3b are pretty weak. kearns is hot right now but who know how long that will last( prolly not that long) other than that everything looks good

Kearns was a ww pick up while Cruz is DL'ed, also ther are no saves or holds available on the WW, they are all taken up by other teams as well and I rank pretty close to last place on the SVHD stat, still trying to work some deals around but my last offer for Garza was for Alex Gordon and Luke Hochevar which declined. It doesn't bother me taht i have 3 pitchers from the same team as long as they are good, we can make daily changes and this just means i can guarantee someone starting on any given day, plus I have 3 SP that I swap out daily depending on who's pitching or if any hitter on ww gets hot to justify grabbing him (except for the catchers and OF that I never seem to have room for)
