Hi all, I'm in a 5x5, 12-team roto keeper league with auctions and salaries. Our salary total for the draft auction is $260, and whatever salaries our keepers have are taken out of that total. After that, free agent salaries count as $1.
We get to keep 4 guys this year, up from 3 last year. We have to keep them at their present salaries, and after 3 years the salary goes up $5 a year. I've had Nick Markakis for 3 years so now he's at $6- I'm still keeping him. I'm also keeing Chad Billingsley and Edinson Volquez, both at $1.
I'm a little torn on my 4th keeper and could use some advice. Any one of these guys is up for grabs, but I would prefer to go for value. I was thinking about Iannetta or Encarnacion but I'm not sure if they're valuable enough. Wells and Victorino are both good deals at their present salaries. Josh Johnson looked nasty when he came back last season. Any suggestions you have would be appreciated, and I'll gladly chime in on any of your own threads.
Here's my roster from last season. Since I'd like to keep Markakis, Billinglsey, and Volquez, they're in bold. Their salaries are listed as well.
