Hi! I play in a 5x5 rotissierie league. Pitching categories are K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP.
My relief pitchers are: Valverde, League, Putz, Addison Reed, Thayer.
It's an 8 team league, so rosters are pretty stacked. I also have for SP: Cain, Zimmerman, Gio Gonzalez, Lance Lynn, Sabathia, Josh Johnson, Dan Haren.
There are 9 slots for pitchers. 3 bench spots for whole team. All mine are used for pitching staff.
There is no minimum on IP, but there is a max of 200 games started. Seems like you'd hit that with about 6 SP's active.
So the ideal strategy would be to have about 6 SP's on your roster and 6 RP's with low WHIP, ERA and high K/9, ideally getting some saves from those guys. Keep your RP's active at all times and rotate your SP's into the other 3 starting pitcher slots as they start.
I say this b/c theoretically it could be good to drop a SP, but I can't bring myself to drop any of these guys. Should I drop one of my RP's?
Valverde has been bad and is not DTD.
Putz has been very bad, but it sounds like his velocity is up recently and maybe he's turned a corner.
League has been good but low K/9. Need his saves tho.
Thayer is perfect so far.
Addison has 1 bad outing but looks good so far.
Here's how many points I have for each category (K, W, SV, ERA, WHIP) = 7, 2, 6, 1, 3
What do you guys think? Thanks!
