Already thinking about keepers: Wil Myers, Reddick WHIR 100%

Postby plapre3 » Sun Jun 17, 2012 1:04 pm

After yet another big injury, I'm throwing in the towel on this 1st year in our keeper league. The league is pretty different than most in it's keeper structure, so the question I ask is as much about understanding league dynamics as it as about player evaluation. Here's the setup:
-----------------------------------------
6x6 weekly HtH 14 team roto keeper

Can keep up to 12 keepers with each player able to be kept at the previous draft round plus 3 (so a 10th round pick last year becomes a 7th round next year, and a 4th rounder the following year). A player picked off the WW is keepable at 29th round value. If more than one WW player is kept, they can be kept at 28, 27, 26, 25, etc. One player can be franchised and locked in at the round in which they were drafted forever (Trout!).

Offensive Categories:
BA, OPS, RBI, HR, SB and Runs Scored.
Pitching Categories:
W-L, S, ERA, K/IP, Quality Starts and WHIP
----------------------------------------------------

My Question: Considering the round in which they can be kept next year and the player's long-term outlook, which players on my roster seem to be strong keepers? Which look like solid bets to be drafted well above their current spot? Which seem good bets to be at about that pick?

My Team:
C - Jesus Montero (5)
1B - Paul Goldschmidt (16)
2B - Jemile Weeks (14)
SS - Jared Cozart (11)
OF - JD Martinez (21)
OF - Mike Trout (Franchise *15)
OF - Mark Trumbo (14)
UT - Wil Myers (20)

SP - Brandon Beachy (5)
SP - Edwin Jackson (18)
SP - Doug Fister (10)
SP - Taijaun Walker (21)
RP - Addison Reed (16)
RP - Aroldis Chapman (17)

WW Pickups.... would be kept in last rounds of the draft - Will Middlebrooks, Todd Frazier, Chris Davis, Josh Reddick, Oscar Taveras, Felix Doubront, Jason Hammel, Dylan Bundy, Drew Hutchinson

Thanks so much in advance. As always, leave a link.

Bump.

I realize that my post is a bit out there in terms of the advice I seek, but I've WHIR'd a lot and given some very quality advice. Anyone care to help out?

This is a tough one. Although you might not have a lot of studs you have some nice young keepers. This is who I would keep:

Goldschmidt
Martinez
Trout
Trumbo
Myers
Frazier
Davis
Reddick

Jackson
Walker
Reed
Chapman

please help

I agree with this, though I wonder if Bundy is worth the flier.
Also tempted by Middlebrools but playing time is uncertain until Youk is
Traded.
