Any decent keeper rankings?

Postby Sid Bream's Slide » Thu Jan 31, 2008 8:33 pm

Does anyone know of any decent keeper rankings out there right now? I need to start putting together some pre-season trade offers.

I did a search of the forums but didn't see anything that came up past June 2007.

Thanks.

No keeper rankings here, but if you do a search for Dynasty rankings (in this forum), you should find some...

What is a keeper ranking? I hope you do not pick your keepers by rankings?? Isnt it better too pick keepers for need and scarcity rather than rankings..if you determine thet only a handful of 3rd baseman may be in your draft..why keep an outfielder if you can get a good OF in the draft??

I don't think so. Well, I guess it depends on how many you keep and league settings. You have to look at talent and potential before scarcity. I'm not keeping Jeff Kent over Justin Upton because the pickings are slim at second.

Of course I pick my keepers by rankings... and need and scarcity. They weren't mutually exclusive last season - did something change since last March?

Our keeper league is set up so that we keep players in the round in which they were drafted. Rankings help me choose my keepers based on round taken last season vs. round predicted this season.

I think he's talking about rankings for the initial draft of the league.

There is no real way to make keeper rankings since every keeper league is different.
