Hi guys! I'm a browser turned finally poster, and I'm wondering if you guys could help me out a bit. I'm in a 10-team league and I'll be drafting 3rd overall tonight! This is NOT a keeper league and it's a 5x5 roto setup with weekly roster sets. This is on Sportsline, so we start 2C, 1 at each infield position, a Middle Infield and a Middle Outfield, 5 outfielders, 1 utility and 9 pitchers. To my first question:
Now, I'm assuming the Pujols/Hanley are 1/2. This leaves me with an interesting choice at #3, and here's what I've been considering:
Tulo - SS is so scarce and behind Hanley/Tulo, it's really shaky
Longoria - 3B, also weak, and I like him, but I am scared he might drop a bit without Crawford in the lineup.
Cabrera - fantastic production, but in a 10 team league, I'm thinking that even with just the 10th best 1B I won't be THAT bad off - is that realistic?
To my second question, it seems that with this setup I need to really focus on getting solid OF, as 5OF x 10 teams means starters will be reaching into David DeJesus territory - also, needing 2 C might make reaching for one early worth while. Your thoughts?
Thanks guys - I really appreciate the help and look forward to providing some meaningful conversation to the community!
