12 team roto, OBP over BA. I have a 20 point 1st place lead in the roto standings, with healthy leads/point buffers in most of the offensive stat categories. Recently beset by medium-to-minor injuries to Rizzo and C.Gomez, as well as minor-ish injuries to Pedroia, Abreu, and Justin Upton. Fortunately, waning interest amount league mates has allowed me to poach Fowler and Eaton off of the wire to fill some holes.

I thought I might stand pat, but BBM's projection/rank for Rizzo moving forward has me thinking otherwise. Though I feel I have the title close to wrapped up, I'm starting to wonder if holding Rizzo is more of a risk than dropping him for a bench bat to plug the holes in my beat-up roster.

What do you folks think?

In your case, dropping him makes sense since he's out indefinitely as of yesterday (http://espn.go.com/chicago/mlb/story/_/id/11455433/anthony-rizzo-chicago-cubs-indefinitely-mild-back-strain) I'm seven points behind someone in a roto league and am having a hard time finding a path to victory so I would imagine it's hard to give up that 20 point lead in one month.

I'm 0.5 points away from first and I had to drop him to chase the counting stats for the other to dailies.  Not to mention I only have 1 DL spot and have to give it to Daniel Murphy since the CUBS are not putting Rizzo on the DL list. Missing 1 player 2 weeks out of the final 3 weeks stats is hard to swallow when your so close to gold.
