Keeper league draft help!

Postby CubsFan4Life23 » Tue Mar 08, 2011 1:32 pm

Thanks in advance.
I am in a 12 team keeper league and we draft in about 10 days. With that said, we keep four players using basic 5x5 H2H categories except OBP replaces AVG

I am keeping MCabrera/Tulowitzki/JUpton/RZimmerman. I have the 8th overall pick in the draft (after the four rounds of keepers).

I am wondering which guys I should target in the first two rounds (pick 8 and pick 17) based on talent and team needs. If you could provide a rank for them, that would be great or just recommendations.

Here is a list of the top 20 (random order)
(Cliff Lee / Matt Holliday / Matt Kemp / Nelson Cruz are available, but I am sure they will be drafted before my pick)
Clayton Kershaw
Dan Uggla
Tommy Hanson
Shin Shoo Choo
Ichiro
Alex Rios
Brandon Phillips
Martin Prado
Jered Weaver
Hunter Pence
Adrian Beltre
Justin Morneau
Chris Carpenter
Jacoby Ellsbury
Martin Prado
Rickie Weeks
Jimmy Rollins
Andre Ethier
Matt Latos

Kemp/Holiday/Pence do fit your needs, but that's a lot of solid OFs on your list and what I see a hole in your team is 2b I might select Uggla myself and have the best infield in your league.

I completely agree...Uggla would be my first choice, but not sure he would be available at the 8th pick...

If not, would it be completely unreasonable to draft the following (Pence / Choo / Phillips) in the first round following keepers? Then should I target someone like Hanson in the next round?
