    DL Stash - Who to take a flyer on?

    I'm in a 14team keeper league and with injuries mounting for some teams, with h2h matchups being more and more important, some owners have been dropping dead weight. I've got 2 DL spots free and wondering who, if anybody, I should pick up and see if they can pay dividends next year. Here's the list:

    Colby Lewis
    Ted Lilly
    Jair Jurrjens
    John Danks

    It's a pts based league so there's no era/whip. 10pts = win, -5pts = loss, 1pt = IP, .5pt = K, 15pts CG/SO, etc.

    Any thought's/opinions appreciated. Cheers.

    • In a 14-team league, i think the only guy who has a real chance of being better than a borderline-FA is Lewis. All could be ownable, but i just don't see the other 3 ever returning to true fantasy relevance. Lilly might have a chance, but that age-related regression is going to hit hard, and i have a feeling its going to hit very soon.

      however, i've never played in a points based league, and it's come to my attention lately that given the scoring settings, players could have surprisingly different values in points leagues versus standard leagues. Still, given their likely ceilings, I'd only be optimistic about Lewis.
