Rate my squad - Should I try to move Braun for an ace?

Postby rowmacks » Sun Apr 15, 2012 3:00 am

Hi, this is my first year playing. Doing a Head to Head CBSSports league since it is the closest thing to fantasy football. Anyhow, what I have noticed is that the way our league is set up having at least one or 2 very strong starting pitchers is a must. I think i'm lacking in this department so far. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

This is hard to say without seeing the league scoring... I'm assuming it is H2H points if it is CBS...

If you post the league scoring system it will be a bit easier to see whether moving offense for an ace is plausible

Usually my advice to new fantasy players is to wait on pitching because stacking up on offense is more important, but sometimes in points H2H leagues, pitchers are extremely valuable with the amount of points they provide you, whereas in "categories" they only provide you with 4 out of the 5 categories, with wins not being a lock.

I don't. It looks to me like hitters are safer to have than pitchers in that league. Braun is as good as they get, and I wouldn't trade him for any pitcher in any format.

Can you take a look at my post? viewtopic.php?t=457275
