B.J. Upton FAAB Help WHIR!

Postby lambo1203 » Sun Apr 07, 2013 5:23 pm

B.J. Upton was just dropped in my league, and I think it's pretty much a no brainer for me to bid on him. The next bidding period ends at 12 p.m. EST Monday. I'm in the first year of an 8-team ESPN keeper league, H2H points. I should pick up Upton right? And what would be a good bid for him? I have $199 left out of $200 for the year, and the highest any draftable player has gone for is $5.

My roster:
C: Mauer
1B: I. Davis
2B: Pedroia
SS: A. Cabrera
3B: Longoria
OF: Holliday, Cespedes, Harper
Util: Wright, A. Hill
SP: Wainwright, Lester, Morrow, Medlen, Zimmermann
RP: Chapman, J. Johnson
Bench: Lohse, Crawford, LaRoche, Hosmer, Machado

(1 pt/base, SB, RBI, R, BB, -1/K, CS, E...+/- 5 W/L, +/- 3 SV/BS, .9/IP, 1 pt/K, -1 pt/BB, HB, ER, -2 pt/HR, 5 pts QS, 9 pts CG, 15 SO)

I got to say, I like all three of your OFs more than BJ Upton so I would not go crazy.

However, I see no need for both Hosmer and LaRoche on your bench. Drop one of them and bid $6. You will probably get outbid by someone who wants him to start, but let them have them.

Due to age and keeper I'd cut Laroche and bid 10 on BJ.
