Rotoworld tells me I am a lock for first? Am I? (WHIR)

Postby thesticks23 » Tue Mar 26, 2013 9:07 am

I am in a 12 team keeper league that is weekly lineups and 5 x 5 scoring with BB's & QS's added in to make it 6 x 6
I sort of Punt paying for saves every year as the added category of QS's I believe diminishes their value in this league.
Tell me what you guys think of this team?

This is my Breakdown of a $270 auction league (i was left with $6 bucks at the end)

C - J. Mauer - $22
1B - J. Votto - $41
2B - Kipnis - $5
3B - W. Middlebrooks - $4
SS - B. Zoborist - $23
OF - Shin Shoo Choo - $18
OF - A. Gonzalez - $30
OF - A. De Aza - $2
Util - M. Napoli - $11
Bench - O. Taveras - $1
Bench - J. Rutledge - $2
Bench - W. Myers - $1

SP - Clayton Kershaw - $27
SP - I. Kennedy - $16
SP - J. Zimmerman - $21
RP - A. Ogando - $3
RP - H. Street - $4
P - D. Haren - $16
P - J. Niese - $4
Bench - J. Beckett - $2

Seems like you got a lot of value there. The combo of Rutledge, Kipnis and Middlebrooks for 11 bucks is a steal. Your starting pitching should be good enough to carry you for a while: Kershaw and Zimmermann are very good as a SP1 and SP2, whereas Kennedy could be very useful (and at the very least is reliable every 5th day). Haren for 16 seems a bit much, but since you had money to spare, he's kind of a "why not?" pick

In short, I think you splurged in the right places and was able to get some really good value for a lower cost. I can't say you're a lock for first (as I don't know the rest of your league), but I like a lot of the guys on your team.

I would never say lock for first because of injuries and if you have a couple lame ducks in your league, some other teams could be stacked also. But I think your team is very good and very balanced. I would even say you didnt punt saves really. Janssen is going to start the year off as closer it looks and he did good enough last year to prob get you 30. And street should get 30 also. If you work the wire during the year, even in a 12 man league you could get to middle of the pack in saves. I think in a 12 man league you will be low On Hr's unless Gonzo returns to his mid 30 HR range and Votto will prob need to hit 30 or more also (which is poss for sure). But even if they dont it isnt like your getting a 3 or 4, more like a 7 or 8 which is fine when the rest of your team is that balanced.

I know i am not a lock for 1st, I just found it funny compared to the rest of my league when i input all their players it projected me as first. Things never work out as planned, especially in FanBB

Any other opinions? things to look for? I will always help in a response if you post here.

Thanks.
