Total newbie - how does my team look?

Postby Chrgrs17 » Thu Apr 05, 2012 3:12 am

Hey guys, fantasy football is my forte. Have never done baseball and don't know much about the players at all. Just thought it would be fun to try something new. I am in a total auto-pick, head-to-head league. We start week 2, so I'll be able to watch a couple games and get a feel for some of my guys.

Scoring Categories: R, HR, RBI, SB, AVG - W, SV, K, ERA, WHIP
Roster format: 2 Util, 2 SP, 2 RP, 4 SP/RP, rest is standard

Roster:
Infield - 1B Cabrera, 2B Uggla, SS Aybar, 3B Lawrie, 3B David Freese C Lucroy Util: Vlad Guererro (No DH slot)
Outfield - Granderson, Alex Gordon, Stubbs, Carlos Quentin
Multiple positions: - 1B/OF Michael Morse 1B/OF Duda
Starting Pitchers: Lee, Zimmerman, Michael Pineda, Hellickson, Brett Myers, Gavin Floyd, Chacin
Relief Pitchers: Drew Storen, Kenley Jansen
SP/RP: Cory Luebke

So there it is. What kind of shape did the computer leave me in? Any insight you could give me at all whether it be player analysis, strengths/weaknesses, future moves to make, or overall tips would be greatly appreciated! Thanks a lot everyone!

Most owned free agents:
Batters:
1B, 2B, 3B Daniel Murphy
OF Lorenzo Cain
OF Bryce Harper
3B Chipper Jones
2B, OF Bryan Reburn
SS Jack Cozart
SS Rafael Furcal

The computer screwed you on RP. Storen is injured and Jansen is battling for the closer spot Guerra. So basically, you don't have a solid closer. Also from your drafts I am assuming you are in a 10 team league and they gave you first pick. The catcher they gave you should be able to replaced off the WW.Also you should be able to switch vlad for someone better. Aside from that good luck.


My ratings for you
Hitting: 76/100
Pitching: 78/100 (just need a RP and you'll be good)

Thanks a lot. 12-team league by the way and yes, i did get the first pick. I'll definitely look into those upgrades. I just added a list of free agents on my original post which you probably didn't see. Who would you lean towards between Aceves, Broxton, or Cordero? I'll probably replace Guerrero with Murphy. Love that Murphy is eligible all over the infield and he is owned in 58% of leagues which is by far the highest. And as far as catchers go, Ianetta is also availible in addition to Saltalamacchia. He had statically a slightly better season than Salty last year, but is rated a little behind Salty in the few rankings I've looked at. Ianetta played in a different ballpark too last season too. Not sure which park is better for hitters...

it may be too late, but go grab Aceves if you can.

I would give Lucroy a chance. He has more upside I think.

definetely, switch vlad, maybe for Lorenzo Cain.

batting: 80
pitching: 75 - you really need to keep an eye out for a closer. I think Farnsworth also lost his job recently.
