Activate or be Patient?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Activate or be Patient?

Postby Hurleyman » Sun Feb 25, 2018 1:18 pm

12 team 5x5 Roto league with indefinite minor leaguers and 5 major league keepers each season.

I have Amed Rosario and Rafael Devers in my minors. I can activate one or both players and have them on my active roster, which allows me to spend my auction dollars on fewer players. Once activated, however, they are treated just like a normal player in terms of being eligible for keeper status going forward. So I’m struggling with deciding if I should activate and play these two this year or wait if/until they are “better”.

So if Devers will likely be a real good player, for example, it might make sense for me to wait until he becomes one of my 5 best players (to be one of the keepers). If they won’t be one of my best players next year then I might as well activate them now and replenish the minor leaguers with new players. I’m keeping Goldschmidt, JRamirez, JD Martinez, Nola, and Tanaka to give you an idea in typical keeper quality.
12 team mixed 5x5 roto, 5 dynasty keepers, no salaries, 7 DL slots, 2 reserves, 4 minors slots.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!
