Reach for Upton over Braun and Ellsbury? 5pm draft

Postby Don't Touch My Wahoo » Sun Mar 16, 2014 3:22 pm

So I have the #6 pick in a dynasty league, 3rd overall due to keepers.

Miggy is going #1.

3 OF and 2 Util which will be OF b/c Out Field Assists counted along with the standard 5.

I can choose b/t Braun, Ellsbury or Upton (well likely b/t 2 of the 3, as one will be gone.)

Do I reach on Justin entering his prime years? Or do I go with Braun or Ellsbury?

I currently have Billy Hamilton (7th round keeper... i took this team over this year) as the only OF on my roster.

Yea I know it isn't great, but it's what I got left with. I could have kept Pedroia with my first round pick but I tried to hit the lottery and get Miggy.

I pick 3rd, 16, 30, 43,68, 81. Rest of roster is Sale(2nd), Fernandez(26th), (QS instead of W's); Freeman(4th), B Hamilton(7th), Profar(8th), Matt Adams (25th), Bogaerts (17th)

Any strategy or advice is welcome.

Ryan Braun Mil - OF
Jacoby Ellsbury NYY - OF
Dustin Pedroia Bos - 2B
José Bautista Tor - OF
Justin Upton Atl - OF
José Reyes Tor - SS
Albert Pujols LAA - 1B
Álex Ríos Tex - OF
Allen Craig StL - 1B,OF
Joe Mauer Min - C,1B
Ryan Zimmerman Was - 3B
Yoenis Céspedes Oak - OF

Both were gone.

I ended up with Upton, Rios, Cruz, and B. Hamilton for starting OF and 1 UTIL.
