Keep 8 - H2H Points Keeper

Postby suckerpuncher » Sat Mar 10, 2012 2:55 pm

I need to select keepers. It's a bit trickier than usual.

It's a 14 team H2H points league.

We have to keep 8 guys. For each player we keep we have to give up the next higher draft pick from where the player was drafted at the beginning of the season. And we can only keep players drafted after round 7.
FA pickups get the last available round spot. If 2 or more players have the same value they'll get the next free round value available.


Scoring for Batting Categories
1B - Singles 1 point
2B - Doubles 2 points
3B - Triples 3 points
BB - Walks (Batters) 1 point
CS - Caught Stealing -1 point
CSC - Caught Stealing by Catcher 1 point
DPT - Double Plays Turned 1 point
E - Errors -1 point
GDP - Ground Into Double Plays -1 point
HP - Hit by Pitch 1 point
HR - Home Runs 3 points
OFAST - OF Assists 1 point
PBC - Passed Balls by Catcher -1 point
R - Runs 1 point
RBI - Runs Batted In 1 point
SB - Stolen Bases 2 points


Scoring for Pitching Categories
B - Balks -1 point
BBI - Walks Issued (Pitchers) -1 point
BS - Blown Saves -3 points
CG - Complete Games 10 points
CGL - Complete Game Loss -5 points
ER - Earned Runs -2 points
HA - Hits Allowed -1 point
HB - Hit Batsmen -1 point
HD - Holds 3 points
INN - Innings 3 points
K - Strikeouts (Pitcher) 1 point
PKO - Pick Offs 1 point
QS - Quality Starts 5 points
S - Saves 5 points
W - Wins 5 points
WP - Wild Pitches -1 point


As you can see due to the scoring my keeper eligble players consist mostly of pitcher (with very good value). In the last years about 25 SP went in the first 5 rounds. And while everyone overpays on SP early on I pick batters to build a strong core knowing I have low risk high reward SP as my keepers already on my team.

I added last years points scored and the pick I'd have to give up in order to keep the player.

Points list is a bit crazy, so I'll just go with round value.

Napoli, Mike (1B,C) TEX - 440 Points - 10th Round
Rasmus, Colby (OF) STL - 345 Points - 20th Round
Weeks, Rickie (2B) MIL - 436 Points - 21st Round
Lincecum, Tim (SP) SF - 654 Points - 18th Round
Strasburg, Stephen (SP) WAS - 86 Points - 20th Round
Zimmermann, Jordan (SP) WAS - 426 Points - 21st Round
Leake, Mike (SP) CIN - 421 Points - FA
Santos, Sergio (RP) TOR - 312 Points - FA

Either Rasmus or Strasburg will fall into the 18th round due to doubling up, but I would stick with these. Take a chance on Rasmus given that your hitters need some depth.

This looks about right to me.
