Help me decide on 2 keepers...WHIR

Postby JagATC » Wed Feb 23, 2011 11:26 am

5x5 roto league with standard categories. Each team gets 2 keepers from the previous year and I will get to keep them in the round that I drafted them in last year. Serpentine draft and I will have the 8th pick in the first round.

Here are my options that I'm considering and I think I've settled on one...just need some help deciding on the other. Player followed by what round I would keep them in.

Ryan Braun - 1st
Adrian Gonzalez - 2nd
Robinson Cano - 3rd
Jose Reyes - 3rd (I traded for him during the season last year and he was a 3rd round pick)
John Lester - 5th
Neftali Feliz - 21st

I'd go with Gonzalez and Cano...If you have a 1st round pick, you could always get Braun back or someone else

help me?

Feliz and Cano. Cano is a first rounder this year and to keep him for a third is great. Also Feliz as a 21st rounder is awesome. He has been going in the 7/8th round in drafts.

With any luck you could get Gonzo & Braun with your first two picks

AGon and Cano for me. Braun is worth the 1st round pick, just that AGon and Cano are better bargains.

Wow...only 1 vote for Feliz in the 21st? I was sure that would be a unanimous pick, being a great value in the 21st. I was actually thinking about keeping Feliz but was torn over Braun, AGon, or Cano. In the past I've kept 2 pitchers so I could just focus on hitting early in the draft, that's why I included Lester in my list.

Depending on other keepers in the league, if I kept AGon and Cano would you recommend taking a SP with my 1st round pick and at #8 overall?

Regardless of how much value you think feliz is at 21, braun, cano and agonz are bears, who are either properly valued or under valued. You won't get braun back at 8, so keeping him makes perfect sense. Cano is the best value at 3, so you gotta keep him for sure... If it was me, I'd probably go with cano and braun, but you could argue agonz is the slightly better value in the second. Not sure what difference it makes since a bunch of great players will be kept, making that first rounder less valuable then it seems.


help with mine?
