Already Keeping: Crawford, Longoria, McCutchen, Jimenez, Dunn
Jeter helps me lock down a position
Ellsbury helps me lock down stats (I'd possibly lock down runs, singles, triples and sb)
can I deal with having to look elsewhere for a SS or should I keep Jeter instead?
You already have 2-3 OFs kept with Crawford, McCutchen and Dunn. Furthermore, Crawford and McCutchen will provide a solid base for SBs throughout the season and cheap steals are a dime a dozen. Ellsbury is overrated on the whole (target Rajai Davis later in the draft if you want a slap hitter with great speed).
Jeter, on the other hand, is a lock for .300 - 10 - 60 - 100 - 20
That is a rock solid line at SS. He also racks up tons of hits, mostly singles, to help with those cats. Oh, and he's a lock for 150 games which is far more than we can say for Ellsbury.
