Who to draft/drop to pick up more steals? WHIR

Postby Woolly the Mammoth » Wed Apr 24, 2013 12:10 am

Standard 12 team Yahoo Roto League. I really like this team except that I'm last in the league in steals. Jose Reyes going down really hurt me in that regard. How do I get more steals? What is the best slot to fill for that purpose? Who should I target in a trade? Who should I offer in return? Rajai Davis is a free agent, but can't I do better via trade? Thanks and WHIR

Davis for Veras.
2 closers and 2 top MRP are enough to keep you competitive in both saves, holds, and advanced metrics. But what I'd do is maybe trade Veras for some cheap speed. (make the ww move if you can't trade)

Gardner would be a perfect swap for Veras.
