11 team AL only 5x5 roto. Expansion draft coming up and I can only protect one of these 3. G. Beckham($8), S. Drew ($10) or F. Gutierrez($1)?

Drew. Cost a lot but plays a premium position.

Agreed. He's probably the only one with any positive value.

Agreed. Plus ... he's going to have a normal offseason unless he manages to hurt himself in the post season. I think that gets taken for granted sometimes.

Yea Drew is the play here. I would guess that none of these is going to get picked off, but Drew isn't going to hurt you.

Drew though I would be holding my nose having to pay $10 for him even in AL only. He can't stay healthy and pretty much stinks most of the time so you will be lucky to get $4 value out of him imo and that assumes he stays in the AL.

I think he is just protecting him from an expansion owner, so the value for Drew is mostly irrelevant. Drew could surprise some people next year, any healthy season for him would put him in the top 10 SS easily. Health, of course, is the issue.

Thanks for the responses. I froze Drew and I'll get to keep all 3 as the new owner took J. Benoit at $5.
