5 moves left, 3 SPs last starts today &2 batters hurt, 4 1st

12 team 6x6 roto league (5x5+OPS/Holds)

$75 entry league fee so there's decent cash on the line. Right now, there's 2 teams that have been going back and forth in 1st/2nd and another 2 teams that have a shot if everything goes right for them and wrong for everyone else. I started out today in 2nd but got a couple huge holds and am in 1st and feel like I have a good shot at winning this thing. Help me make my final move and bring it home.

Offense
1st priorities: R (4 runs behind other guy close to 1st), RBI
2nd priorities: HR, AVG, OPS

Pitching
1st priority: Holds
2nd priorities: K, W, ERA

Roster:
C Nick Hundley, SD C - struggling lately
1B Adrian Gonzalez, Bos 1B
2B Ian Kinsler, Tex 2B, DH
3B Mike Moustakas, KC 3B
SS Jesus Guzman, SD SS, 1B DTD - not as droppable as the rest, but has been sitting from neck injury
2B/SS Jose Reyes, NYM SS
1B/3B Emilio Bonifacio, Fla OF, 3B, SS
OF Nick Markakis, Bal OF
OF Alfonso Soriano, ChC OF
OF Dexter Fowler, Col OF
OF Colby Rasmus, Tor OF
OF Jacoby Ellsbury, Bos OF
UTIL Vladimir Guerrero, Bal DH
Bench Lucas Duda, NYM OF, 1B DTD - droppable, hurt, may not return

P David Price, TB SP
P Jered Weaver, LAA SP
P R.A. Dickey, NYM SP - droppable, last scheduled start most likely was today
P Guillermo Moscoso, Oak RP, SP - droppable, last scheduled start most likely was today
SP Zack Greinke, Mil SP - droppable, last scheduled start most likely was today
SP Ervin Santana, LAA SP
RP Sean Marshall, ChC RP
RP Chris Sale, CWS RP
RP Greg Holland, KC RP
Bench Shaun Marcum, Mil SP
Bench Matt Harrison, Tex SP, RP

FAs
All these RPs have 2+ holds in the last week:
Joe Smith, Cle RP vs Min @Det @Det @Det
Jesse Crain, CWS RP vs KC Tor Tor Tor
Pedro Strop, Bal RP vs @Det Bos Bos Bos
Kenley Jansen, LAD RP vs @SD @Ari @Ari @Ari
Darren Oliver, Tex RP Sea @LAA @LAA @LAA
Jason Grilli, Pit RP Cin @Mil @Mil @Mil
Matt Albers, Bos RP @NYY 2 @Bal @Bal @Bal

Batters:
Chris Parmelee, Min 1B vs @Cle KC KC KC
Salvador Perez, KC C vs @CWS @Min @Min @Min
Allen Craig, StL OF vs ChC @Hou @Hou @Hou
Wilson Ramos, Was C vs Atl @Fla @Fla @Fla
J.D. Martinez, Hou OF vs Col StL StL StL
Kosuke Fukudome, Cle OF vs Min @Det @Det @Det
Peter Bourjos, LAA OF vs Oak Tex Tex Tex
Ruben Tejada, NYM SS, 2B vs Phi Cin Cin Cin
A.J. Pierzynski, CWS C vs KC Tor Tor Tor
Kyle Seager, Sea 3B vs @Tex Oak Oak Oak
Matt Downs, Hou 2B, 1B, 3B vs Col StL StL StL
Trevor Plouffe, Min DH, 2B, SS, OF vs @Cle KC KC KC
J.P. Arencibia, Tor C vs @TB @CWS @CWS @CWS


I don't necessarily have to burn all 5 moves today but (correct me if I'm wrong on last starts today) I have 4 droppable guys with my 3 last start guys + Duda, who might not be back and Guzman would make a good bench guy if he starts playing again. I could certainly use one last move in my pocket after another one of my starters is done.

Thanks! WHIR!

For now I would pick up one or two pitchers for some holds- go with the ones that have been stable of late. As for the batters, all of yours are way better than those on the waivers, so I would only do a pick-up there when your guys have off days. Again, pick up players that are hot.

I'd look for STL & TB middles for Monday. I wouldn't make Dickey a drop, those knuckleballers could throw an inning or 2 the last game or 2. I think Weaver is done unless the Wed game means something,don't plan on a start from him. Guzman should play again. Several playoff teams won't have starters even go 5 innings this week, theres vulture wins to be found there as well

As a Mets fan, I already cut Duda on Friday, he's done, don't waste your time hoping he will come back. The average recovery time for any dizziness/concussion symptoms is now 6-8 months so pick up Parmelee.

Holds are tough to predict but would take Jensen and Albers. Jensen has been lights out, Arizona won't be going 100% since they clinched a playoff spot, while Boston will have to go all out on favorable competition in the Orioles.

Save the last 2 for insurance.

Thanks for the help on mine. I agreed with GP, but I like Strop and Albers though. The two are finishing the year in a series together, so by packaging the two of them you can improve the probability of picking up a hold each day.

Jordanrulz,

Please check out my post on keeping Lester or Kennedy. I'd appreciate your thoughts.

I would definitely cut the "last start" guys for Jansen and Crain...their teams are out of the playoffs (so they won't get vultured bc their managers are resting them) and they are playing fair (not good) teams.

As for offense, Vlad barely scores runs. I'd cut him for Bourjos.

This leaves you with 2 more insurance moves.
