NFT: Fantasy Baseball Thread

I know this thread will have a limited audience, but some of you guys are really into it and thought I'd share my team after the draft and a few adds. I auto-drafted after round 14 and the first two rounds, as I had a commitment and didn't get on until late. Not ideal, but I think it worked out ok. Only concern I have is I took a lot of injured pitchers in the middle to late rounds, but I saw a lot of value there. Weekly H2H categories league.

I'll start with that group:

SP Yoshinobu Yamamoto - Round 4
SP Eury Perez - Round 8
SP Walker Buehler - Round 10
SP Chris Sale - Round 11
SP Cristian Javier - Round 13
SP Kodai Senga - Round 14
SP Jordan Montgomery - Round 16
SP Yu Darvish - Round 18
SP Nick Lodolo - Round 24
SP John Means - Round 25
SP Tyler A. Wells - FA
SP Andrew Abbott - FA
SP/RP Sean Manaea - FA

RP Emmanuel Clase - Round 9
RP Ryan Pepiot (is really a starter) - Round 12
RP Griffin Jax - FA

You can see I mainly punted closers as I feel I can get them throughout the season, and I tend to have at least one starter with RP eligibility in that RP spot anyway.

Obviously, the SP group should look a lot better in May than it does right now, with Montgomery ramping up in the minors, Senga, Means, Lodolo, Buehler, and Eury all on the IL but should be back in the coming weeks.

Now for hitters:

C Francisco Alvarez - Round 15
C Luis Campusano - FA
1B Pete Alonso - Round 22 (keeper, forever keeps at that round)
2B Thairo Estrada - Round 20
3B Gunnar Henderson - Round 6 (keeper)
SS Elly De La Cruz - Round 2
CI Freddie Freeman - Round 1
MI Carlos Correa - Round 19
OF Ronald Acuna - Round 3 (keeper)
OF Jazz Chisholm - Round 5
OF Jackson Chourio - Round 7
OF Brandon Nimmo - Round 26
UT Eugenio Suarez - Round 23

BN/2B Edouard Julien - Round 17
BN/OF Starling Marte - Round 27
BN/OF Alex Verdugo - Round 28
BN/C Ryan Jeffers - Round 30
BN/OF TJ Friedl - Round 21 (IL)

Really like my combo of speed and power here. Hoping ELDC improves his hitting, but has a really good HR and SB floor. Not sure what to do with Nimmo, Marte, and Verdugo, I'd like to improve that 4th OF spot. The best available are Austin Hays, Michael Conforto, and Will Benson. Benson intrigues me the most.

Any opinions/advice definitely welcome.

I like it better in 14-team - hitters are awesome, but pitchers need some things to break right.

I have a similar team without the benefit of a 3rd round Acuna keeper. So less SB's, but I have ELDC as a 20th round keeper, Eury as a 12th round keeper and Edwin Diaz as a 22nd round keeper. I also had 2 1st and 2 2nds due to trades last year. We have 3 IL spots and 2 NA spots for minor leaguers or suspended players.

My team:
C: Alvarez (9th)
1B: Freeman (1st)
2B: ELDC (20th*)
SS: Lindor (1st)
3B: Gimenez (10th)
OF: Arozarena (2nd)
OF: Springer (7th)
OF: Suzuki (8th)
UTIL: K. Hayes (18th)
UTIL: Riley Greene (11th)
BN: Casas (6th)
BN: Cowser (24th)
IL: McLain (4th)
IL: Dominguez (waivers)
NA: James Wood (19th)
NA: Marcelo Mayer (23rd)

SP: Nola (2nd)
SP: Webb (3rd)
P: Harrison (14th)
P: Jared Jones (waivers)
RP: Doval (5th)
RP: Diaz (22nd*)
BN: Eury (12th*)
BN: Mason Miller (17th)
BN: DL Hall (21st)
BN: E. Cabrera (25th)
BN: Severino (16th)
BN: Chase Silseth (waivers)
BN: Ben Brown (waivers
IL: Robbie Ray (Waivers)

you easily have the lineup for it, the pitching needs some injury luck/good health
