Took Some Risks. Please Rate. WHIR

Postby REBEL5 AC » Mon Mar 25, 2013 11:16 am

First year to a new keeper league. I had 9th pick of 10. Took a stab and picked up J-UP in first round. I feel he was a better pick than Fielder and Pujols for the long haul.

thanks for help.

How many keepers, any penalty? What is your scoring?

You have a lot of great young talent. But really want to know your setup before commenting.

10 teams 5x5 H2H. Four keepers, no penalty. I took guys like Upton, Harper a few picks before their ADP, but felt it would pay off just fine this season, while setting me up for long run.

I think your offense is a great power hitting offense, but I would keep an eye on Granderson... he might be coming off the roids.
I think Upton was a great call. I'm a biased Braves fan, but I've seen about 4 games this year and he is absolutly stroking the ball. Better all category player than Fielder and Pujols, and he'll get plenty of RBI with BJ Upton and Jason Heyward hitting in front of him. Picking him and Harper in a keeper league is like money in the bank for the next few seasons.

The lineup is great. Looks a lot like a typical lineup I would build, waiting on pitching and going after young talent. Now in the case of Prince VS JUpton... I'm going Prince but I understand going for the younger talent.

Pitching is about a 3.5/5 but that's PLENTY at the end of a draft. Guys will break in, others will slump get dropped and you'll pick them up right before they take off. I never draft a strong staff and always find a way to be fine in H2H. Like your squad!

Thanks for the advice. Just picked up a couple more RP so I can oversell them to someone in a month or so

I have to agree with what everyone else is saying. I think you have a great lineup with some very nice power, you kept the age of your team down which is clutch in a keeper league, and I think you made a great call with J-Up! You should be pretty happy this year baring injuries. I would much rather have your squad than the mess that I got myself into this season.
