Desmond JEnnings.... BEAST MODE.... HElp.....

Postby etl1692 » Thu May 24, 2012 11:48 pm

Leave A Link and Guarenteed Feedback! Cheers! Answer these few questions......

1.) Desmond Jennings is going to clear WW tonight and I want to take a shot at him. I'm currently in waiver priority 10. Chances are I wont get him, but who should I drop for him?

Possible Drops:
Alejandro De Aza ( I find it hard to drop him as he currently is top 5 producers on my team)
Rickie Weeks (Really no problem dropping as he has been TERRIBLE, but watch once I drop him he catches fire!)
A Pitcher? Jeanmar Gomez was streamed today so I can't drop him yet! :(

2.) When Kemp is back in full swing, who are going to be my starters..... Aviles is taking Rickies spot for now, So Rickie is on the bench, But where do Youk, Trout, and De Aza come into play. Most people will say De Aza but he is a top 5 hittter on my team right now fantasy points wise, and I really like this guy. But either Aza, Youk, or Trout will sit?......... Which one?

What about Pettite? I'm not buying his hot start since he hasn't exactly faced quality competition.

help with mine?

^ You are correct but how can you do that after the last quality starts. PLus his K rate has been impressive. I would drop Niese or Smyly before Pettitte. Im not saying Pettitte will continue this consistency, but I look at him as a viable starter on my squad....

Thanks Though!

And what about who starts?

Oh I didn't see Niese. Yeah I would drop him to try and get Jennings. Smyly I wouldn't drop since he has a start tomorrow. Niese doesn't start again till Monday. Also I noticed Jennings is still on the DL so do you have a DL spot to put him so you don't have to drop someone for him?

No I have one DL spot and MAtt KEmp is on it right now. My plan which I just found out I can do, is Drop Jeanmar Gomez for Desmond Jennings. Just have him sit on the bench hurt... Shouldn't kill me as I'm up in this weeks matchup. Just gonna have to find someone to drop for when Kemp comes back.....

Thing is my OF looks like this: Kemp, Upton, Upton (starters)
Then: Aza, Trout, and JEnnings (if acquired)

If this is the case I may keep trout and JEnnings and package Youk and Aza for a decent pitcher. If not that combo look for something else.......

I can't see dropping De Aza especially after the grand slam and power he has shown tonight.

Definitely get Jennings. I would drop Jeanmar.

Drop Smyly. Niese is a solid pitcher with good K numbers. I don't care if Smyly pitches tomorrow, I wouldn't concern myself with dropping a crap pitcher with a start to get a top notch guy like Jennings.
