Drop Jose Valverde for Allen Craig if he has 2b eligibility in your league don't trust Aaron Hill for ROS.
I'd also consider dumping someone for Billy Butler I'm shocked he's a FA. I'd take Moose over Aram.

WTF!! How many teams are in your league? Most of the hitters should be on a team such as Hosmer, Butler, Youk, Moustakas, etc. Your team is pretty good but I would consider taking Butler. I agree with Maddog36.

Thanks for the responses, lots to consider. It is an 8 team league, so yes there are lots of good players available.

My strategy is to only carry 1 bench player on offense so that I can switch out pitchers on a daily basis. I will be dropping Valverde tomorrow to pick up a spot starter.

On offense, people really don't seem to like Aram. I'm from Chicago, so I understand that he is not a top tier 3b. But when I compare his fantasy points for the past week, 2 weeks, month, and all year, he tops Butler and Moose every time. Is there something I'm not getting? I need someone at 3B and I don't like how Trumbo's batting average is trending - his plate discipline seems to be slipping.

I have been thinking about picking up Craig for a while, just not sure who to drop. I could drop Hill for him.

Butler, Victorino, and Hosmer are all solid

Morse has been injured most of the season but has been good since returning. Youkilis has improved significantly since switching teams.

Butler > Victorino > Hosmer > Morse > Youkilis > the rest

Can I get your thoughts on my thread?
