You overpaid for Choo and Bonifacio, but other than that it's solid.

Choo isn't that bad, as long as he returns to form. Big if.

I really wanted Emilio, so I was ok with paying a little more. I feel like I mostly overpaid for relief.

Yeah I don't think Choo was an overpay. I think you did overpay for Bonifacio though because speed tends to be less valuable in ottoneu points leagues since a caught stealing essentially erases 2 successful steals. You definitely overpaid for Robertson too, but I don't think it's going to kill you. All in all you should be pretty good. You got some really nice values as well to offset those overpays

True. Choo killed me last year so I'm probably biased.

And apart from Robertson, you did fine with RPs. I'm of the belief that unless you're getting an elite guy like Kimbrel or Axford, you should never go above ~$10 for RPs. I'm in a league where Venters went for $20 at auction. You have to spend enough to get a solid foundation but there are always a few guys you can pick up off the scrap heap who will produce in a points league.

Also, Lincecum is an absolute steal.

Also wasn't sure about spending 15 on Bryce Harper, but I did it anyways. I had no idea what he/a prospect like him would go for.

I've got kind of a tricky fantasy baseball question. When I created my league, I originally made it an 8 team league, but then we found 2 more people and made it 10. when I created the league however, something got screwed up and the 2 additional teams were assigned to bye-weeks for every week this season, and I didn't figure this out until the season had already started. I can go in and manually change the schedule myself and get rid of the byes, but I can't seem to figure out a way to arrange the schedule in a way that makes it so each team plays every other team an equal amount of times. Is there a technique that I can use to make the schedule even, or is there a website out there that will generate an even schedule for me?

tl;dr, How do you manually create a fair and even fantasy schedule?
