Input on Dropping a Player?

Postby MementoMori5 » Wed Aug 22, 2012 7:28 pm

I have Trevor Plouffe and Mike Aviles, and I don't need both. Since Plouffe has come off the DL I haven't really played him, but was wondering who would be the better choice to keep on in the remainder of the Fantasy season. I know Plouffe is more versatile in terms of positions I can place him in, but I'm just talking about stats right now. Any advice would be great!

Question is what your team needs and how much you want to gamble. Plouffe has more power but he has always been inconsistent. You basically are praying he goes on a heater like earlier in the season. Being wildly inconsistent is what Plouffe has always been known for but when he is on,,,he looks amazing. So he hurts your team most of the time. He would be the high risk/high reward. Sorta depends what your team needs and if you want to take that risk. Sometimes i drop guy simply because i dont need to take any additional risk,,,even when the upside is higher.

Aviles is near worthless. Plouffe has a little pop but is streaky at best. I would gamble on Plouffe though neither is a great option to say the least.
