16 team keeper. rank these top players. WHIR

Postby SpecialFNK » Wed Mar 21, 2012 9:55 am

16 team keeper league, keep 5. yahoo, roto, 5x5.

my first year in this keeper league.
my 5 keepers are- SP- David Price. 3B- Ryan Zimmerman. 1B- Paul Konerko. 2B- Dan Uggla. SP- Brandon Beachy.

I have 2 picks in the first round. 3rd overall and 12th overall.
these are the top players available. please rank say the top 5?

1B/3B- Pablo Sandoval.
OF/1B- Michal Morse. (injured lat?)
C/1B- Mike Napoli
OF- Jason Heyward. (bad spring?)
OF- Adam Jones.
C- Buster Posey
OF- Jayson Werth.
OF- Shane Victorino.
OF- Ichiro Suzuki.
1B- Billy Butler.
OF- Corey Hart. (injured?)
OF/1B- Lance Berkman.
1B/2B/3B- Michael Young.
1B/2B/OF- Michael Cuddyer.
OF- Carl Crawford. (injured)


I think Sandoval will go either 1 or 2, so I probably wont get him. I think I would take him at 3 if he was available.
Michael Morse could have good numbers, but I worry about his injury.
Jason Heyward has a lot of potential, but he's having a bad spring, after having a bad year in 2011.
I could go Mike Napoli?

for my 12th overall pick I think if they are still there I might choose between either Ichiro or Butler. I know i'm going to need to target speed, and I think Ichiro returns to form batting in the 3 spot and again goes 40+ in SB.

I'd go:
Sandoval
Victorino
Morse
Berkman
Posey or Crawford

Heyward could also be considered.

Look for Butler a little later. I think he could be huge this year.

Pablo would be my first pick. After that it is hard to say because so many guys will be off the board. Napoli/Crawford (most upside)/Heyward would be who I would look at.

No SP good enough to list?

I agree, Sandoval first. Then Napoli or Crawford if they are there.

most of the top pitching is being kept. part of the reason I kept Beachy over Adam Jones who was my other option.
the top pitchers available- Ian Kennedy (I don't trust), Yu Darvish (I don't trust), Tommy Hanson (returning from injury), Josh Johnson (returning from injury). there are some SP I'm looking at maybe 3 rounds later like.. Luebke, Garza, Ubaldo, Marcum.
