I posted yesterday with a similar trade, but basically we have worked out my Sale for Harper. He offered me the trade so I can accept it any minute. Im hesitant because my lineup is
1b, Rizzo, Belt
2b Merrifield, Chris Taylor, Chris Owings
ss: Swanson, (taylor and owings)
3b: Moustakas, Villanueva
OF: Bellinger, Marte, Teoscar, Peralta,
SP: Sale, carrasco, C Mart, Garrett Richards, Buehler, Stratton, Liriano, Medengen
RP: Ottavino, Bradley, Reed, Zach Britton
Its a Points league with Weekly lineups. 10 pitcher starts max. It is 3 guy keeper with 2 batters max but I wouldn't keep harper $40 when i have bellinger $6 and guys liek swanson, teoscar, and buehler at $1 each. My worry is that I wont find much SP help on the wire any time soon.
We start 3 OF so at this point it would Be Harper, Bellinger, Marte. Then id have to decide in my util between Teoscar and Villanueva when both of those guys could be breakout and are currently must start players. Even Peralta is becoming a must start lately. However when Rizzo heats up and potentially gains 2b elig again (has 1 start I need 10) I could shift bellinger to 1st, rizzo to 2b, and my OF would be Harper, teoscar, Marte which would be best case scenario but could and probably will take months.
I currently have the best hitting team by far through this point in the season and my SP has been dominant as well.
Its a 14 team pretty deep league, and these guys don't ever trade this is my first real trade offer in 4 years lol. But it is a money league that is pretty much winner take all of almost $2500 so I want to make an early season decision to win. What would any of you guys do in this situation? I'm not super into fantasy on a daily basis anymore so I need help asap!
