I'm in a keeper league, head-to-head, 10 teams, R, HR, RBI, SB, OBP and W, K, SV, ERA, WHIP
Here's my lineup heading into the draft (with the corresponding rounds that they count for):
C 1B Miguel Cabrera (2nd Round) 2B 3B SS OF Carlos Gonzalez (3rd Round) OF Justin Upton (5th Round) OF Curtis Granderson (10th Round) UTIL
It's my turn to draft my draft slot: I have the 2nd, 4th, and 8th pick to choose from.
The team with the 3rd pick has no first round pick. There will be another team with no first round pick that takes one of the two draft slots left after I pick mine.
Here are the top hitters left on the board that I'm considering for the first round. Remember, I won't pick again until the 4th round.
Albert Pujols Joey Votto Adrian Gonzalez Evan Longoria Robinson Cano Hanley Ramirez
The question is, which draft slot would you pick, and which player would you go for? Both questions are kind of dependent on one another. If I take the 8th slot, I am guaranteed to get one of the players on the above list because two teams will have no first round pick. Taking the 8th pick would also give me an earlier pick in the 4th round.
Then there's the question of Miguel Cabrera. I'd happy take Gonzalez/Votto and play Cabrera at 3B. I'd also be happy to play Cabrera at 1B and Longoria at 3B. There are so many possibilities, what would you do? I probably won't get Votto or Gonzalez at the 8th pick. I'm really high on AGonz this year.
All help is much appreciated, and I will help in return if you leave a link.
Yeah, the third pick in the draft has no first round pick, so taking the 4th pick guarantees me either Pujols, Votto, or Gonzalez. The question is if it's important for me to grab one of those top 1Bs, or should I be happy taking the other players on the list.
go with the 4th or 8th pick,get yourself cano(ive seen him go anywhere from 2nd-10th this year). cano is better then votto and agon and is at a weaker position for fantasy. taking the 8th pick yourll get hanley, hanley is also at a weak position for fantasy. you already have migs at first and even if you wanted to you can grab hosmer or freeman in the later rounds where each will give you atleast 20 and 80.
I think I'd take the 4th pick and I'd rank those players:
Cano Ramirez Pujols Gonzalez Votto Longoria
If you get a 1B you can move Cabrera to 3rd, but I'd prioritize getting one of the MI, which is why I'd take 4th over 8th. Taking the 8th spot means you just end up grabbing whoever's left, and while that's a good player, I'd rather have a choice in the matter.
