    • Matt Kemp is the only reach in my opinion, I don't trust the Dodgers OF mess, I avoid it. I don't trust Hamilton, but compared to his ADP, 87 wasn't bad. You did get four (probably) closers, but none of them are top tier. You're looking to do quantity over quality. Your starting pitching is pretty good. You did grab some speed other than Hamilton, so if he can't get on base enough to stay in the lineup, Braun, Kipnis, Kemp, Victorino, Gardner, and Upton still give you plenty of speed. You've still got nice power, too.

      I would give your hitting 9/10. It's not dominant, but it could be the best group of hitters in the league.
      I would give your starting pitching 7/10
      I would give your relief pitching 6/10
      Overall I would give your team an 8/10

      It's good enough to be a contender, but probably not a favorite to win the league. I would put it top 3, though.

      My team (9th pick in 12 team 5x5 roto 1400 IP cap)
      1. Hanley Ramírez (LAD - SS)
      2. Adrián Béltre (Tex - 3B)
      3. Félix Hernández (Sea - SP)
      4. Madison Bumgarner (SF - SP)
      5. David Price (TB - SP)
      6. Aroldis Chapman (Cin - RP)
      7. Trevor Rosenthal (StL - RP)
      8. Alex Cobb (TB - SP)
      9. Michael Cuddyer (Col - 1B,OF)
      10. Matt Moore (TB - SP)
      11. Alfonso Soriano (NYY - OF)
      12. Jered Weaver (LAA - SP)
      13. Brandon Belt (SF - 1B)
      14. Nelson Cruz (Tex - OF)
      15. Howie Kendrick (LAA - 2B)
      16. Wilson Ramos (Was - C)
      17. Christian Yelich (Mia - OF)
      18. Rex Brothers (Col - RP)
      19. Justin Morneau (Col - 1B)
      20. Anthony Rendón (Was - 2B,3B)
      21. George Springer (Hou - OF)
      22. Derek Jeter (NYY - SS)
      23. Drew Smyly (Det - RP)

      I went pitching heavy, top pitching in the league by a fair margin I'd say. But I think my hitting is good enough. Obviously I need Cruz to find a team. I'm hoping that Morneau can stay healthy until Springer comes up in June - they're slated for my 2nd Util slot with Rendon and Jeter for my bench.

      Because its a roto league with an innings cap, I wanted high K closers.

    • Braun,Kipnis,Verlander,Hamilton,Lester,Gardner and Bogaerts at their respective picks are steals.
