    billy hamilton dropped

    In a non-keeper league, no. There is no assurance that Billy will produce this year. I would wait until he clears waivers and pick him up then, dropping Lowrie. I have less faith in Lowrie than Billy. In a keeper league I would drop Lowrie for Billy and use the #2. You probably won't use Hamilton this year but the potential is so high it's worth holding him. You can teach basic hitting eventually but you can't teach speed and Billy has so much speed it's worth the risk. I have him in a keeper league and he is just on my bench and will probably be there all year.

    Would you drop Teixeira for LaRoche? They would be a bench player for a team that sorely needs power.

    Smoak, LaRoche, Morse or Hart?

    BTW 11 team standard 5x5 roto

  • I am looking for bench power without an average kill, who would be best of these players?

    Smoak
    LaRoche
    Morse
    Hart

    I am leaning toward Morse as he gives eligibility at 1B, LF and RF and historically has had a good average. However both Smoak and LaRoche are batting 4th while Morse is 5/6 and Hart is batting 5th. Of course Blackmon and Colabello are both available as well. Thanks.

  • In an 11 team standard 5x5 Roto league would you drop Teixeira for for Todd Frazier? I have little to no faith in him. My team is,

    C Saltalamachia, lost Ramos to injury
    1b Goldschmidt
    2B Pedroia
    3B Encarnacion
    SS Hardy
    LF Crawford
    CF Ellsbury
    RF Bruce
    Util Kemp
    Util Billy Hamilton

    Bench Rollins, Smoak, Teixeira, Eaton

    SP Teheran, Weaver, Samardzija, Gallardoo, CJ Wilson, Cingrani, Bucholz

    RP Lindstrom, Hoover, Brothers

    DL Chapman, Hamels

    All the confirmed closers are gone, even Soria and Hawkins. The available possibles are Brothers, Melancon and Benoit.

    11 team, 5x5 roto 8 player keeper league, had to autodraft so my bench is questionable.

    I only have 1 closer so I will need to drop someone eventually for the next closer available, who should it be?

    M Team
    C Ramos
    1B Goldschmidt
    2B Pedroia
    3B Encarnacion
    SS Hardy
    LF eaton
    CF Ellsbury
    RF Bruce
    Util Kemp
    Util BHamilton
    Bench Crawford, Teixeira, BJUpton, Rollins, Markakis

    SP Teheran, Weaver, Hamels, Cingrani, Samardzija, CJWilson, Bucholz, Gallardo
    RP Chapman

    Thanks.
