I can keep five players in my league. There are no penalties for keeping a player - you don't forfeit a draft selection or anything like that. You just get to keep five players, straight up. It's H2H, 6x6 scoring. Rosters are C, 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, OF, OF, OF, UTIL, SP, SP, SP, RP, RP, RP, P, P, P. Here are my players. It's a 12-man league, BTW.
C: Mike Napoli 1B: Billy Butler 2B: Robinson Cano 3B: Ryan Zimmerman SS: Asdrubal Cabrera OF: Justin Upton OF: Mike Stanton OF: Brett Gardner UTIL: Desmond Jennings BN: Dustin Ackley BN: Danny Espinosa
SP: Jon Lester SP: James Shields SP: Tommy Hanson RP: Ryan Madson RP: Chris Perez RP: Mike Adams P: John Axford P: Tyler Clippard P: Francisco Rodriguez BN: Anibal Sanchez BN: Erik Bedard BN: Jeff Niemann BN: Brandon McCarthy
Cano, Upton, Stanton, and Zimmerman are pretty much locks, but I have no idea what to do with that fifth spot. Any suggestions? I could either take Napoli or Jennings to bolster my offense, or maybe hang on to Lester to make sure that I have an ace-level starter to work with while I use the draft to filling out my pitching staff. Thanks for any feedback.

The reason I'd take Napoli over Jennings is that he's the number one Catcher, and there are plenty of other players to fill Jenning's position.
Umm, this maybe your league mate trying to pull one over on you! But in all seriousness, when was the last time Napoli had a season with 400 AB. Also, did you realize his BABIP was .344 last year? He had a breakout season, no doubt - but he's going way too early in drafts right now!
