Any of these guys worth an add? WHIR

Postby wingman3110 » Mon Jun 18, 2012 2:41 pm

Im looking to add a bat and drop Venable. The problem is that there is a lot of options to choose from right now in the FA pool.

Here's the guys I'm considering:
Kevin Youklis, Rickie Weeks, Dustin Ackley, Mark Reynolds, Chase Headley, Adam LaRoche, and Michael Brantley.

12 team 5x5 roto redraft

My team:
C- Matt Wieters
1B - Joey Votto
2B- Howie Kendrick
3B- Pablo Sandoval
SS- Derek Jeter
OF- Allen Craig
OF- Matt Holliday
OF- Hunter Pence
UT- Dexter Fowler
UT- Tony Campana
Bn- Will Venable
DL- Jacoby Ellsbury

SP- Jon Lester
SP- Matt Garza
RP- Joel Hanrahan
RP- Frank Francisco
P- Ernesto Frieri
P- Casey Janssen
P- Ryan Cook
Bn- Jake Peavy
Bn- Jarrod Parker
Bn- Anibal Sanchez
Bn - Hiroki Kuroda

Since this guy will most likely just be a UTIL player for you, I would go with LaRoche.

Probably LaRoche but personally I would be switching this out for whoever is the hot player at the moment kind of deal.

My league has a transaction limit and I wish I would be able to stream hitters but I just can't unfortunately :~(

Dude, LaRoche for sure. In my view, this is an easy one. Brantley has cooled, ended his hitting streak, and hasn't stolen a base in forever. Ackley is super mediocre and has lousy peripherals. Weeks hasn't heated up enough to consider picking up, I think. Stats wise, LaRoche > Headley thus far this season. Reynolds has been really hot recently, but Adam has almost matched Mark's hot streak with one of his own.

You should definitely be putting LaRoche out there instead of Campana. Weeks is an interesting spec add- he's put together a string of good games, and he'll suddenly become a very valuable commodity if he does it again this week.

Gotta have Campana out there just for his SB's. I am treading water in that category.
