Is Acuna worth it

Postby Gmunu » Mon Apr 02, 2018 1:06 am

Somebody just dropped Acuna in one of my non keeper leagues. Is it worth me dropping my backup catcher, Alfar0, to pick him up? Who else among my batters should I drop if I don't drop Alfaro? I have the #1 waiver rank so I will get him if I claim him. Our league has the following scoring categories for hitters: R,H,HR,RBI,SB,BB,K,TB,AVG

My current team:

Batters

C
Chris Iannetta Col - C

1B
Miguel Cabrera Det - 1B

2B
José Ramírez Cle - 2B,3B

3B
Kris Bryant ChC - 3B,OF

SS
Corey Seager LAD - SS

OF
Matt Olson Oak - 1B,OF

Nicholas Castellanos Det - 3B,OF

Adam Eaton Was - OF

Util
Jeimer Candelario Det - 3B

Paul DeJong StL - 2B,SS

Ian Happ ChC - 2B,OF

Ozzie Albies Atl - 2B

Jorge Alfaro Phi - C

Acuna should start every week for you, you probably don't need to roster a backup catcher in a 1 C league

In a 1C league, there is noreal need to hold a backup C.

I'm guessing this isn't a keeper league? It is at least worth it to pick him up over Alfaro.

Yeah a backup catcher isn't going to do much. Because catchers all take days off, so linking up their off days is almost impossible.

Acuna is one of the best prospects in baseball on a mediocre team. He'll get called up in no time.

Help with mine?
