Trading Reyes... Upton, Votto, or Howard the rest of the way

Postby StckFigure » Sat Aug 06, 2011 8:45 am

I'm in a 5x5 roto standard league, NL only, ten teams. I'm desperately last in steals and giving up in the category, but I'm in the thick of it for home runs. There are three teams that could all roughly equally take advantage of the fantasy numbers Reyes offers, and I'm looking to move him, fast. Possible options I can go for that seem appealing and fit my team well are Justin Upton, Ryan Howard, and Joey Votto. My primary need is HRs and runs (especially giving up Reyes), and RBIs wouldn't hurt, either. How do you rank these three options going forward?

I would try to target someone like a Bautista or Granderson if youre going for homeruns only.

Out of what you have listed here though i would take Bautista

Well Howard is the one that will give you what you need but what will his BA do to your team? Personally I would take Votto, Upton, Howard but if you made a move for Howard by giving up Reyes you should be able to get a 2nd player in that deal and that might make the Howard side more appealing.
