Who to target in draft?

Postby pizzaboy76 » Mon Mar 12, 2012 2:10 pm

12 team 5x5 roto keeper league. We keep 15 and draft to fill up the rest of the roster. I have the 8th pick in every round (not a snake draft). My team;

C - M. Montero
1B - Konerko
2B - Pedroia
3B - Zimmerman
SS -
OF - Ellsbury
OF - Hamilton
OF - Jennings
OF - Bourjos
DH-
IF -
Bench - Harper

SP - Gio
SP - CJ Wilson
SP - Gallardo
SP - Romero
SP -
RP - Putz
RP - League
RP -
P-

These are the top 20 players available. Who should I target? (Number is parenthesis is overall rank)

I'm assuming McCann, Pujols, Tex, and CC will be taken. After that it's a crap shoot. Was thinking of targeting Rollins, Kendrick or Young with my 1st pick. the grabbing BA player after that. Seem like a plan or would you go another route?

C - McCann(60), Mauer(106)
1B - Pujols (3), Tex (32), M. Young (2B,3B) (68), Ike Davis (98)
2B - Kendrick (OF) (46), Weeks (97)
3B - Youkilis (56)
SS - Rollins (63)
OF - Victorino (67), Crawford (77), Werth (80)
SP - CC (36), A. Sanchez (101), Scherzer (128), Jimenez (129)
RP - Axford (99), Rivera (104), Papelbon (112)

I'd say target rollins, the drop off after him at SS is huge, especially with 15 keepers being kept per team

Rollins is a logical choice since you need a SS. If he's not that I would target Michael Young. He'd plug into your IF spot pretty well and give you some flexibility if you should loose Zimmerman or Pedroia for any period of time.

I agree Rollins would be a good pick

With SS thin, I'm now thinking he might be selected by the time my pick comes around.

So do I go with Young or Kendrick (I like the flexibility they offer), or Youkilis (like the power, but injury prone), or do I grab one of the OF's? Who would be your top 3-4 After Pujols, Tex, McCann, CC and Rollins?

I'm not a Rollins fan.
He wouldn't be my 5th choice.
I like Young here.
