- Take 2 top pitchers who have a good chance to win
- Do not pay for catchers and infielders, typically weak positions; would rather pay for outfield.
- Get hitters who face weak pitchers, not an easy thing to do since on day one most teams play their top starters. Colorado has Kyle Kendrick, not an elite hurler. Hence three Brewers on my team.
- See if there is an unheralded guy who is a full-timer but new, hence inexpensive. Found Jace Peterson. I am curious about his performance.
Will it work? The good news is that I do not have to wait for the season to end to find out. That’s the beauty of daily leagues.
Incidentally, this was my first experience with USA Today FantasyScore. I found the site easy to navigate and the roster creation intuitive.
