He would be the 1st pitcher I would take in a dynasty draft...

I would look at Heyward is 1st or 2nd round

Sratsburg if you really want him has to be taken in the 1st round...
I dont think he is a 1st round pick...but guaranteed he wont be there after the 1st round


look at
Hellickson in the early rounds too...also Chapman

can you look at mine

I agree if you want Strasburg then you best get him real early the only problem with him is his injury and coming off Tommy John Surgery so there is risk that he may not play this season.

I would consider Strasburg around the 10th round. Anything else you and you are cutting your legs out from under you. Yes it is a dynasty league but Felix is still very young and has already done it. Also guarantee if you took Halladay, you could trade him for Strasburg.

I assume you still want to win this year right, then don't start reaching for young guys just to lock them up. There are plenty of guys not that much older who are top 25 players.

I agree completely. Around 9-11 is solid. If you lose out on him before there's still plenty talented guys to grab. And you can always deal a Halladay type for him.
Thanks to soty for this sig

I agree with the two above me, do not take these young guys too early. They will be around for a long time but there are plenty of other proven players with plenty of years left. If you take these guys too early, you will not have a chance of winning for several years, and will only have a chance later if they pan out, which is not guaranteed to happen. Draft younger than you normally would for a redraft but don't go too crazy with it.

Lot of young guys out there that are very valuable in a dynasty league. So don't begin reaching until round 5, and that's the absolute earliest. Let someone else waste a top pick on the Tommy John patient.

Please help?
