I am in an NL only 5X5 roto league and in 3rd place I have Fister and Cain coming off the DL soon (hopefully) I’m thinking of dropping Lincecum. The other players I could drop are Tom Koehler Tony Watson and Bartolo Colon if I have to. What are your thoughts? You have to start everybody in this league

In a mixed league, I wouldn’t have a problem with this, but in an NL-only I don’t think Lincecum is waiver wire material just yet. It’s a bummer that you have to start everyone though. I’d give Timmy a couple more starts to get his act together and probably drop Watson instead as it sounds like this is a non-holds league.

sup do you think granderson can be the guy or do i drop grandy OR quintana and claim prado? (OPS and QS league)

This kinda depends on how badly you need homers as opposed to your batting average situation, but Prado is off to a slow start as well, so it’s not like he’s a sure thing. I’d lean towards keeping Grandy for now due to the HR potential.

Which pitcher should I drop from my team since Fister is coming off the DL, Quintana, McAllister, Alfred Simon or Jonathan Niese, or should I keep these pitchers and wait to see how Fister does and drop him if he doesn’t do well?Thanks.

McAllister. I’m still a fan but I think he’s the riskiest of that group. Tempted to say Simon, and long-term I think he may be the worst performer of the group. But the way he’s pitching right now, I simply could not justify dropping him.

well my OF is Cain/ Maybin/ Marte/ Gardner/ Bonifacio/ C Young with Harper/Eaton on the DL Craig was just dropped is he worth picking up and if so who would you drop? Also is Stubbs going to get regular playing time and worth a spot? Also what to do with Alex Wood? thanks

Yes, Craig is a must-add. I think I’d drop Maybin. Pass on Stubbs. Hold onto Wood. Not sure why you would even think about dropping him. But if you mean Travis Wood, I’m fine with dropping him in a 12-team mixed league.

Zach

Im #1 on my leagues waiver wire so put in on Craig and will drop Maybin…..Will need to make room on my roster w hen DL players return…..drop Norris when Mesoraco returns? Drop Bonifacio or Cain when Eaton returns……I have Donaldson and Arrenado so wondering about dropping Sandoval?
