Keep 4 -Obvious Best Value? Or Not So Fast?

Postby Remotethumb » Tue Feb 01, 2011 6:29 pm

We keep 4 players. Standard scoring, weekly h2h 5 x 5 with $280 salary cap. Start 1 each position plus DH, start 5 SPs and 2 RPs each week.

So far, I'm keeping Votto ($26) and Tulowitzki ($26). We use Sporting News Fantasy prices. (this season salary + last seasons/2...so i get both the players above cheaper)

That leaves me with 2 more keepers:
1b
Votto $26 (KEEP)
Teixeira,Mark NYY $33
2B
Weeks,Rickie MIL $18
3B
Rolen,Scott CIN $18
SS
Tulowitzki,Troy COL $26 (KEEP)
C
Napoli,Mike ANA $18
OF
Rasmus,Colby STL $13
Hunter,Torii ANA $26
Bourn,Michael HOU $17
(DH)Dunn,Adam WAS $24
SP
Minor,Mike ATL $5
Dickey,R.A. NYM $4
Sanchez,Anibal FLA $6
Garcia,Jaime STL $8
Dempster,Ryan CHC $16
Jimenez,Ubaldo COL $21
IR-Strasburg,Stephen WAS 1
Hanson,Tommy ATL $18
RP
Aardsma,David SEA $24
Dotel,Octavio COL $3
Fuentes,Brian MIN $18
Kuo,Hong Chih LA $5
Storen,Drew WAS $9

Thanks for the help. My only thoughts are: I would like to keep Dunn but I played him at OF last year (Tex at DH last year, Votto 1B) so I can't play him at OF until he plays 10 games there.

Also, Rasmus is cheap. What about Rickie Weeks? Is he gonna kepp pounding? And I'm sorry, but in the past years I've sort of scrapped for steals, not punting but not drafting for them...and so last year, having Bourn on my team, it was a pleasure to win that category most weeks with just 1 player.

Also, I could keep Jimenez and hanson and hope for continued rising to Ace status, but I always get burned keeping pitching (but tell me to keep them if you think that's the best value)

If you read this far, I WHIR. I promise. just give me a little time (kids) and I'll always respond. Thanks!!!

I like Hanson and Jimenez.
But i could see Weeks if you're a risk taker (injuries)?
