PFFBL: 2019 Roster Set

I have been in my AL-only ultra-roto league for eight years. This past weekend the Positive Friction Fantasy Baseball League had it’s annual auction.

Once Giancarlo Stanton was auctioned it was essential to get Pham who was the #2 OF available.

Keepers in this league are set with auction values and contracts and I kept ten players out of a maximum of twelve. I had $154 entering the auction which maintained that I needed to watch my spending. I was roughly sixth overall in the amount of money I had to spend in the auction.

After keeping all of the infield and supplementary IF positions (MI, CI) my main auction goal was to acquire outfielders and starting pitchers. I fully intended on going after Giancarlo Stanton but pulled out of the bidding when his price reached $46 – and in retrospect I’m glad I did – because I was able to get a deeper OF with the available funds I had to spend. Here the 2019 initial roster and pricing for team Antonio Picante:
