Value of Andrew Oliver?

Postby the ROC » Sun Apr 17, 2011 4:25 pm

How good will Andrew Oliver be this year as well as going forward? Worth a pick up in a 10-team dynasty league?

I made a bet in 2003 that the Devil Rays would win the 2008 World Series. Oh so close.

I'd say there are better options in a 10 team dynasty league.

I really like him but this question depends on how deep your rosters are...

We have 40-man rosters, using 25 guys a week on our "active roster" so it gives you some wiggle room on how to use your spots. I already have Teheran, Lyles, Cosart, Ranaudo, and Moore as pitching prospects (and Chisenhall, Sands, Jennings, Alonso, and Green as hitting prospects), but I figured if Oliver was gonna get called up ahead of most of them, he could be worth a shot, and if he produces, he'd be trade bait or a possible keeper. We have 25 keepers, plus up to 5 more "prospect slots" which can be filled with guys who have less than 200 AB, 10 pitching starts, 40 IP in relief, or 50 IP overall.

If you have to drop 1 of the ten guys you mentioned, I'd suggest considering Lyles. He's pretty much always been projected to being a teams third starter.
