Spend money to hit 120 stolen bases and 240 home runs.
Don't splurge early on, instead Invest in 2 or 3 guys that won't cost you as much as Trout. Examples: Freeman, Machado, JoRam, etc.
Have some money left over, so that you can load your lineup and/or rotation with a bunch of decently good players. Far better to have a full team with no holes than a star-studded lineup with many holes. Be ABLE and WILLING to spend a couple extra bucks on guys you really like for the year.
Do your research:
If you like to read up on pitchers, draft more bats. And vice versa, play to your strengths.
Don't just hit google up for sleepers. Take the time to google specific players. Like... take the pitchers ranked 20-50 and google every single one of them.
Past the stars you invest in, don't look at talent, look at opportunity. Draft a couple bats from the yankees/indians/cubs/nats etc as opposed to the hot-shot talent from the padres/mets/royals.
Take chances on the wire on guys that start out hot. If it doesn't last move on to the next guy.
Consult rotoworld closer thread for your closing needs, and again, act on speculation.
My personal big ticket items this year are Machado and Albies. My lineup has lots of Cubs Braves and Rangers in it. There aren't any stand-out pitchers besides Bumgarner, but theres tons of SP 3's on there coupled with middling closers and elite setup men who might have closing duties at some point.
I don't save save save save save. Instead, get a couple great players... then save save save save save, and stack your entire squad with a bunch of guys 100 and up. And specific guys, the guys you researched and believe in. Don't just save and look for deals.
