Is it ok to drop Belt for LaRoche in a redraft league?

Hang onto Belt, though having room on the bench for LaRoche would be nice to have. Again, it's one week (less than that at this point) so going for the veteran over the upside would be shortsighted. Plus, you could trade Belt to someone who believes in him and still get LaRoche.

Keep Belt. If he plays everyday, he will outproduce LaRoche. I would wait a few weeks (LaRoche will be more stable, but Belt's ceiling is much higher).

If you want to drop Belt at that time, LaRoche (or someone similar) will still be available.

Would rather have Belt. If you pick up LaRoche then you will just have to drop him in a week or so. Save yourself the trouble.
