This is my first year playing fantasy baseball, and I am in a 20 team league. In the first 2 weeks, I have had the following players on the DL. Ubaldo Jiminez P, Ryan Zimmerman 3B, Jason Bay OF, Franklin Guiterrez OF, and Rajai Davis OF. At one point, I had 8 players injured, 5 on the DL. My biggest problem is I have to play 4 OF's and 3 are injured. We are supposed to us 9 pitchers, but with all the injuries I am only playing 8. Somehow despite all this, I'm still in 10th out of 20, but I could fall further back I'm afraid if I don't do anything.
We start 4 OF's, and my current ones are:
Omar Infante (usable as an OF)
Injured I have Jason Bay, Rajai Davis, and Franklin Gutierrez. Would you drop Gutierrez and pick up a P, and then once Jiminez comes back pick up a positional player? I feel like what I need is flexibility or I could fall so far behind waiting for injured guys to come back. Gutierrez might be going to a special nationwide clinic for his ongoing stomach problems.
