I've been carrying around Jesus Montero in case something happens to Posey, but he's really just eating up a roster spot. I'm wondering if he can go for any of these guys:
-Yasmani Grandal
-Rick Porcello
-Mike Leake
-Aaron Cook
-Lucas Harrell
-Luke Hochevar
-Michael Fiers
-Edinson Volquez
-Gavin Floyd
-Pedro Alvarez
-Cody Ross
-Yuniesky Betancourt
-Dexter Fowler
-Kevin Youkilis
-Yoenis Cespedes
-Travis Wood

In general, I'd rather have the following in this order:
1. Cespedes
2. Youkilis
3. Fowler
4. Ross

In your case, I guess it depends on what you need given your point system. It appears that power is weighted higher than speed (HR=4, SB=2, Cycle worth the same as one HR). And pitchers seem to be penalized heavily for poor performances, and the pitchers you list are all pretty risky right now.

Since Montero's catcher-eligible, he's doing fine for me this year, especially given where I drafted him. But like you mentioned, he's unnecessary baggage for you, since he hasn't shown his upside yet. Therefore, I think I'd drop him for one of the above, if I were in your situation...
