Keeper Mock Draft

By Arlo Vander

Once again, there’s been plenty of hot stove activity this off-season. The Mets have stacked their roster – something of a winter tradition, it seems – with impact players such as Carlos Delgado and Billy Wagner. The Marlins held a fire sale, with just about everybody except Dontrelle Willis and Miguel Cabrera shipped out of town. And the closer carousel has kept right on spinning, highlighted by Toronto’s signing of former Oriole BJ Ryan to a five-year deal worth $47 million. How did all these off-season moves affect players’ fantasy values? There’s no better way to find out than to look at a mock draft.

A keeper league format was assumed for this mock, so aging vets tended to slip a bit more than they do in single-season leagues. And as with any mock draft, the drafters’ preferences and team needs obviously play a role in their respective choices, and a player’s rank might therefore vary from what you might expect from a cheat sheet compiled outside of actual draft conditions.
