First serious Fantasy Team - 12 Team 6X6 rotisserie WHIR

Postby RaisinBraun » Tue Mar 20, 2012 9:18 pm

Hey everyone, this is my second year participating in fantasy baseball, and I just wanted to see if anyone could spot any glaring weaknesses that needed to be addressed in my lineup before the season is underway. Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.

I'm part of a 12 team rotisserie (non-keeper) league. The scoring categories are 6X6, with Hits counting for batters and Complete Games acting as the extra pitching category.
I was picking 9th, here's my team:

C-Matt Wieters
1B-Pablo Sandoval
2B-Ben Zobrist
SS-Alexei Ramirez
3B-David Wright
OF-Ryan Braun
OF-Shin-Soo Choo
OF-Jayson Werth
Util-Freddie Freeman
BN-Neil Walker
BN-Jeff Francoeur
BN-Lucas Duda

SP-Clayton Kershaw
SP-Stephen Strasburg
SP-Matt Garza
SP-Brandon Beachy
SP-Wandy Rodriguez
RP-Drew Storen
RP-Rafael Betancourt
RP-Matt Thornton
BN- Scott Baker

Guys I've been looking at in free agency include: Brandon Belt, John Mayberry Jr., Todd Helton, Stephen Drew and Chase Headley (had the two last players and dropped them).
Dropped Chris Sale in favor of Matt Thornton, good move?

Thanks!

I like your lineup throughout. No real weakness, but you'll be scratching your head trying to fill in the Util spot throughout the season, ride the hot hand and you should be ok. May want to also watch your corner IF positions, Sandoval isn't a top-tier option at 1b, and watch Wright's injury.

Help out?

Your SPs are the strength of your team and your hitting doesn't have any glaring holes. At the same time, your hitting doesn't look that good either. If you can improve your hitting, you'll have a solid team
