I need to select keepers. It's a 12 team H2H points league. Last year we had 16 teams but 4 managers didn't make it back. That's why the team doesn't look like a 12 teamer team.
We have to keep 8 guys. For each player we keep we have to give up the next higher draft pick from where the player was drafted at the beginning of the season. And we can only keep players drafted after round 7.
FA pickups get the last available round spot.

As you can see due to the scoring my keeper eligble players consist mostly of pitcher (with very good value). In the last years about 25 SP went in the first 5 rounds. And while everyone overpays on SP early on I pick batters to build a strong core knowing I have low risk high reward SP as my keepers already on my team.
I added last years points scored and the pick I'd have to give up in order to keep the player.

Anderson, Brett SP OAK - 423 Points - FA
Strasburg, Stephen SP WAS - 0 Points - FA
Braden, Dallas SP OAK - 301 Points - FA
Zimmermann, Jordan SP WAS - 191 Points - FA
I personally have set my mind on 7 out of 8 keepers already with Rasmus being the only hitter. The 8 spot in my eyes is either Gutierrez or Volquez who has very good value still and could help me down the stretch during the playoffs if he's back in August.
Which 8 guys would you keep?
Thanks in advance.
