Heyward ;-D

The one thing that worries me is that Heyward is Cliff Floyd JR (mr injury prone himself)

Heyward all the way on this one. Utley's knee is a major concern, imo.

I have a feeling that Utley's injury is more than they are letting on - he has previously tried to play through injuries, so it's unlikely just to be a totally minor thing. Also the Phillies are admitting that it could be more than they previously thought, so I think there is significant risk with Utley. On the other hand, right now, he is better than Heyward. I'm assuming that you wouldn't get Heyward back if he went into the draft. Probably, you have to decide whether you need to take risks to contend (in which case you have to hope Utley is healthy by opening day) or whether a safer approach works, in which case I would hold on to Heyward. All of that is assuming that you can't redraft either of them.

I too am in Philly and like the previous people stated - when Utley isn't playing through a little soreness, something is wrong. I have a terrible feeling something more serious is wrong. Is there a penalty for getting keepers in late? It seems like we'll know more on Utley in 48 hours...

I'm in a similar situation:

Utley!

With only 3 keeps my guess is that your keepers don't make or break you... so I wouldn't be concerned with only two keeps left.

It isn't like you can keep JH for his entire career.

Utley... A total beast at the 2nd base position, the reward far out-weighs the risk imo. Many OF out there are capable of posting similar seasons to Heyward. Keep Utley and cross ur fingers. Take a look at mine.

Thanks for the help guys, given the split of opinion, it was definitely a tough call. I ended up going Heyward (though I have a chance to get Utley), so we'll see how it goes. I tried to respond to everybody who left a link, but if I didn't get yours, let me know and I'm happy to help if I can.
