Potential keepers... thoughts?

Postby TheGhost » Wed Jun 01, 2011 2:14 pm

I play in a ten team, H2H, yahoo keeper league. We get to keep two players from rounds 1-5, two players from rounds 5-10, and two players from the rest of the rounds. Every keeper player is to be kept at one round higher then the previous year. I realize it's early but this is my first year in this format and am just trying to get a grasp of this. Below is how my draft played out.

1. (7) Carlos González OF
2. (14) Roy Halladay SP
3. (27) Kevin Youkilis 1B,3B
4. (34) Ian Kinsler 2B
5. (47) Jason Heyward OF
6. (54) Yovani Gallardo SP
7. (67) Jay Bruce OF
8. (74) Mike Stanton OF
9. (87) Elvis Andrus SS
10. (94) Pedro Alvarez 3B
11. (107) Brett Anderson SP
12. (114) Matt Wieters C
13. (127) Daniel Hudson SP
14. (134) Joe Nathan RP
15. (147) Jeremy Hellickson SP,RP
16. (154) Colby Lewis SP
17. (167) Brian Roberts 2B
18. (174) Brandon Lyon RP
19. (187) Matt Garza SP
20. (194) Ian Kennedy SP
21. (207) Daniel Bard RP
22. (214) Michael Pineda SP
23. (227) Gaby Sánchez 1B

Given the keeper paramaters described above... what keepers would you select at this point of the year? Thanks!!

In rounds 1-5, I think CarGo is a no-brainer. He's young, hits in a friendly ballpark, has offensive firepower around him, and can also run. Then you have a decision between Halladay and Heyward. Halladay is about as steady as they come, but Heyward has a huge ceiling. Personally, I would go with Halladay. This is because, in rounds 6-10 you have two more young, stud outfielders in Bruce and Stanton. They both have a lot of power, and could make the loss of Heyward not seem as bad. For the rest of your roster, you definitely have to look at Pineda. He has been tearing it up this year, and is also very young. I love his stuff. Then I'd look at Hellickson and Kennedy, leaning towards Hellickson.

So, if I were you, I would go:

CarGo
Halladay
Bruce
Stanton
Pineda
Hellickson
