My Model Portfolio

High Risk, High Reward

by Mauricio Rubio


On Friday, Mike Gianella released his latest mixed league Bid Limits, which spurred an idea from Bret Sayre called Model Portfolios, wherein the fantasy staff (and anyone else on the BP roster who wants to participate) will create their own team within the confines of a standard 23-man, $260 budget. The roster being constructed includes: C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, CI, MI, OFx5, UTx2, and Px9 along with the following standards issued by Sayre:

  • We are using the mixed-league values.
  • You can use any player not on Mike's sheet for $1.
  • The scoring will be 5x5 roto, so we're not just picking the players who will return the most value.
  • Eligibility is kept to the positions applicable right now. No potential in-season eligibility is to be considered.

We will track these teams throughout the season to see how everyone fared. Below is Mauricio's offering, along with an explanation of how he assembled his crew.

Having a solid value system in place with zero chance of inflation is a great way to build an auction-based team. The selections I’ve made here are a mix of value buys and stat fillers. I don’t think guys like Bryce Harper will return much more than $2 of value this season, especially with the injury risk he presents, but, well, let’s just go ahead and dive into my team.
