Like I said I have never done this before. I know players who are good but not necessarily at fantasy. What's your rating? Any players you'd drop immediately? Or sleepers I should look for?

    Honestly for an 8 man league the team is average, maybe below average.

    I think you took closers too early since there are 32 teams so there are 32 closers and typically each team will draft 3 or 4 closers so theoretically you can wait until the last 3 rounds to get closers.

    Wainwright is a little risky, but I think he will be a stud this year, beachy and shields probably wont be worth their average draft pick.

    You have 4 shortstops for some reason which you don't need. You can probably try to trade off castro or andrus along with a closer to get someone like hunter pence or paul konerko. You might be able to pick up brett myers (hou), grant balfour (oak), jim johnson (bal) or sean marshall (cin) as a replacement closer.

    Some sleepers that might be available are: brennan boesch hitting in front of miggy and prince and having a monster spring

    Adam Dunn could have a big bounce back year

    He is probably taken, but Kendrys Morales should have a good year

    Nick Swisher might be available, but probably not

    Also I don't know if Trumbo will start for the Angles because of Morales and Pujols and Utley has bad knees but hopefully he will go on the dl until he is ready to go

    in case you desire my straightforward opinion, im not gonna get ideal answer. your going to furnish ideal answer to whoever says "wow ur crew is a 10/10 so solid omg i appreciate you". nicely, I extremely could be straightforward, your crew is likely going to be combating to sidestep very last position on your league. prince fielder is extremely tremendous, yet ur next few options were questionable. crawford is solid for difficulty-free and steals, yet not a lot else. mags is extremely solid too, yet thats about it. polanco is a a million stat guy, johjima is a nil stat guy, lowell is getting older, renteria hasn't ever been that tremendous plus he's getting older. your pitching crew has smoltz, hudson, then garbage. rafael soriano is solid, yet you've purely like 4 solid gamers on your crew. my crew in a 12 guy league has a-rod, bj upton, garrett atkins, curtis granderson, bobby abreu, hideki matsui on offense, which may truly wreck yours. my pitching crew includes john lackey, fracisco liriano, james shields, it really is larger than yours too. im not basically attempting to gloat, yet i desire your league is a 16 guy league in the different case your not prevailing some thing till you signal this years ryan braun
