Hi guys, new to the forum (not a rookie fantasy player though) and I'm dying to get some input on my team. It's my understanding that returning the favor is the way to go, so by all means leave a link to your team and I will take a look at it for you!
So, I have this 12 team keeper league (head to head, 5x5 with avg, obp and k/bb, whip, era). Just drafted two days ago, and I'm on the fence whether or not I came out as well as I thought I would. I picked 8th and we didn't snake (instead starting over at 1 after each round. So I basically picked 8th in every round). I missed out on a LOT of my pre-draft targets, usually within one pick or even the same round, so I had to adjust a lot and on the fly.
C - Wilin Rosario (12th round, keeper)
1B - Joey Votto (1st round)
2B - Josh Rutledge (15th round)
3B - Ryan Zimmerman (3rd round, keeper)
SS - Ian Desmond (11th round, keeper)
OF - Alex Rios (10th round, keeper)
OF - Jason Heyward (4th round, keeper)
OF - Shin-Soo Choo (5th round)
UTIL - Josh Reddick (17th round - currently discussing a trade, Reddick for Pagan)
BN - Dexter Fowler (16th round)
BN - Matt Carpenter (19th round)
BN - Domonic Brown (20th round)
BN - Wil Myers (21st round)
SP - Felix Hernandez (2nd round - highest ranked pitcher not kept)
SP - Jake Peavy (6th round - one of the few high ranked pitchers left at that point)
SP - Josh Johnson (7th round)
SP - Lance Lynn (13th round)
SP - Marco Estrada (14th round)
SP - Julio Teheran (18th round)
SP - Jaime Garcia (22nd round)
RP - Joe Nathan (8th round)
RP - Mariano Rivera (9th round)
RP - David Phelps (23rd round - already put in a waiver claim to replace him with either Lohse or Doubront, since Phelps didn't make the rotation)
I feel like I'm a little pitcher heavy, but the waiver wire right now is just not very enticing for hitters (though I really want to find a spot for Tyler Colvin and/or Dayan Viciedo). That problem might be solved soon, as we're debating adding a N/A spot (which would go to Myers), giving me room for one of them.
What do you guys think? Too low on power? I went with 'multi-tool' guys like Rios, Heyward and Choo, hoping to do well across the board (I stunk it up in AVG and OBP last year and finished 6th). Decent sleeper picks? Too big of a gamble at 2B?
Thanks, and remember: I will return the favor!
