Ideal Keeper Draft Position?

Postby AncientSpectre » Thu Feb 22, 2007 9:24 pm

In a 10 team keeper league starting this year, what would be the ideal draft position? The only position I can't take is first.

Do I want 9th or 10th, so I can grab two studs right off the bat (say, Utley and Guerrero or Wright and Beltran, something like that) and also get Delmon or Gordon with a top pick in the minor league draft? The minor league draft is the reverse order of the major league draft.

Or do I want somewhere in between so I don't have to wait very long in between picks? If so, which pick would I want?

I like 4 or 5 in a new keeper because you can get Miguel Cabrera, a stud OF or 1B and then a great keeper SS in the third.

There's something to be said for having a pick in the middle of the draft so that you don't miss out on runs, but I think in a keeper league, Pujols is just so friggin' good that I'd want the first pick.

You definitely wanna be drafting first in a 10 team keeper league.

Well, the lone guy with a lottery pick ahead of me chose the number one draft spot, so if you had to choose between #2 to #10, which would you pick?

I'd say 1 is the best.

Between 2 and 10 I'd lean towards around 4/5. Guranteed one of Howard/Reyes/MCab/Crawfird then can get a stud on the way back too. ;-D

I take 4 or 5, theres about 5 guiys tied for the #2 slot IMO, and you can get the remaineder of Howard, Reyes, Santana, A-Rod and M-Cab. So actually maybe I'd pick 6th? 7th if you like Sori.

You still get a top prospect.
