Txs for the reply on my post.....

Hahahahahah....figures you as well would have a question regarding Walker.....

As far as this year goes I would definitely go with Walker over that bum Hosmer if position doesn't play a role in the decision. Walker is red hot and Hosmer has been slumming (he has picked things up lately but all smoke and mirrors).....in a keeper league (which this is) I thik I would go with Hosmer though...I think he is just having a bad year but Walker has never produced these kind of power numbers as he has this year so I see him going back to his old self in the future.

Now.....personally if I were you I would go with Walker since regardless of Keeper or not you look like you have enough Keepers that Walker and/or Hosmer won't be going with you for the next year(s) to come. *Speaking of....AWESOME squad!*

Good Luck m8!

Walker is having a superior year but I think Hosmer will be better long term.

If you are trying to win this year, I completely understand dropping Hosmer for Walker. But have you tried to trade Hosmer yet to see if you can get anything better in return for him? He still has a lot of potential, especially in keeper leagues.

In a redraft, the answer is obviously Walker. He's having an amazing year and Hosmer, well, isn't. However, since it's a keeper league, I strongly suggest seeing if you can deal Hosmer before you drop him. He has a lot of value and lots of upside that could either a) help your team out in years to come or b) get you something good in return. I don't have a lot of experience with keepers but it seems reasonable that you try and trade him. I'm sure there are owners in your league that would love to get a nice buy low like Hosmer, and you could probably get something substantial in return that would help your team now.

Help here?

I dont see how you can keep Hosmer with this super power team, so do what it takes to win now and get Walker.

Try trading Hosmer first though.
