Keeper help needed

Postby joecahill » Sat Feb 12, 2011 6:41 pm

Hey all. This is a standard 12-team 5x5 roto keeper league, 5 keepers, $260 auction draft for 30 players, $10 is keeper min, players can be kept 3 times max. C 1B 2B 3B SS OF OF OF UTIL UTIL SP SP SP RP RP P P P starting lineups, I'm keeping Carlos Santana ($10 1st time) and Jason Heyward ($18 1st time) for certain. For the last three spots, I have to choose between:

Elvis Andrus ($15 2nd time)
Pedro Alvarez ($10 1st time)
Delmon Young ($10 1st time)
Josh Johnson ($15 2nd time)
Mat Latos ($10 1st time)
Jeremy Hellickson ($10 1st time)
Joe Nathan ($10 1st time)

I'm leaning towards Andrus, Johnson, and either Alvarez or Latos. I'm just somewhat wary of keeping too many second-year players for consistency's sake, even if they are all dirt cheap. Thoughts?

Both Johnson at $15 and Latos at $10 are good values. For the final spot, I'd go with Delmon Young. He finally put things together last season and showed why he was such a hyped prospect... I expect him to continue on that path next season.

This looks good. Also like Hellickson.
