Draft this sunday, any suggestions?

Postby joheshy55 » Fri Mar 18, 2011 4:21 am

Okay, im in a 5x5 10 player Roto league up to 5 keepers each. My first year and took over a team. I draft 9th out of 10 in snake. 19 player roster, 7 pitchers, 3 bench, 9 hitters

HAnley ramirez,
Carlos Gonzalez
BUster posey
Shin-soo Choo
Brian wilson

any suggestions where to start? what positions are short this year? and which players should i be looking at?

Thanks, any ideas going into the draft should help me.

It kind of depends on who's available in tghe draft. Based on who you have there I'd say your need for a 1B is acute, but if there aren't any good options then you'd wait awhile. You could also start looking at your first Sp in what's esentially round 6 there (although after that one guy you can probably wait a couple of rounds for number two). In general, you need power, so stock up while you can in the draft, and don't be afraid to grab a high-power, poor-average, type guy to help out there (Reynolds, Pena, ect), just maybe not more than one guy like that unless you have some BA studs to pair them with.

Keeping a closer in a 10 team league is a bad idea in my opinion, unless you have no one comparable to keep. 10 team leagues are deep, i think you go for another couple power guys before you go after a SP unless a premier guy like lincecum or halladay or king felix is available.
