I'm in a 10-person, points-based keeper league. We field 32-person teams, and keep 22 (dynasty league, no salary cap or cost etc.) Scoring is typical, i.e. for pitching: W=10, L=-5, K=1, BB=-1, R=-1, H=-1, INN=3, and for hitting: HR=3, R=1, H=1, 2B=1, 3B=2, SB=2, CS=-1.
I have most of my keepers figured out, but I'm on the fence for a few. The dotted line below is where I'm thinking of drawing the line, but I'm undecided on whether to keep: Jermaine Dye (is he too old? will he suck next year like he did the second half of this year?) and Aaron Crow (will he live up to the hype? is he too far off from starting?) .... and I'm undecided on whether to drop: Garrett Jones (is he a fluke, or will he keep it up?); Bud Norris (is he legit? will he develop into a solid #2 pitcher?); Jake Arrieta (I was patient this year, but he didn't seem to develop much in AAA); and Jonathan Sanchez (he just hasn't crossed over into consistency, but strong K potential).
Any advice would be much appreciated! I will help in response.

I'd call that a shallow league with overly large rosters. so no minor league roster, you just bench minors for years as they mature? You most certainly want G Jones, Rios was a huge disappointment but with 220 keepers he needs to be there, Norris probably too. Having a tough time getting a feel for who you'd want to wait on minors-wise in that setup; how many active starters every week? daily transactions?
