Solid debut season...help with ranking keepers [AWHIR]

Postby TruYankeeFan » Sun Oct 14, 2012 8:39 am

Good morning guys, been caught up in the fantasy football season but will def miss having a team to work every day. I was in 1st for all but 2 weeks of the season...but losing Melky the cheater...Then Kershaw's issues in the playoffs plus a few bad games made sure I finished 3rd. Still had a fantastic time....much more than I had ever thought. B-)

So a few guys from my league and I are going to continue our league as a keeper league next year. We have not decided on the keeper #s or related rules...but we will keep the scoring system and general rules. 12 team h2h catgegory w/ (offense: r, rbi, tb, obp, netsb; and pitching: ip, sv, k, era, whip) daily roster changes and 6 waiver moves a week.

I am sure we will keep at least 5...but there is no limit yet to how many. I am mostly confused about my pitching...all my none-Ranger starters really excelled down the stretch...so I don't know which guys are no-brainers regardless of whether we keep only 5, nor do I know how many/who I would keep even if we had 15 keepers....lol

I have put (*) next players I think are worth considering depending on how many we are going to keep. But I am having trouble ranking them...

C-Y Molina*
1B-Prince*
2B-Altuve*
SS-Jeter
3B-Arod
OF-CarGo*
OF-Cespedes*
OF-B Harper*
UT-A Craig*
BN-T Frazier*, Sal Perez*

SP-Kershaw*, Dempster, Harrison, Zimmermann*, K Medlen*, Hughes*, Shields*, Minor*, H Bailey*

RP -Chapman*, Wilhelmson

Rank as many as you are willing...Thanks!

Always WHIR...just leave a link. ;-D

Those are you top 4 keepers. Then it really boils down to how many keepers are you going to have. i would probably rank them something like this:

Craig
Molina
Zimmermann
Chapman
Cespedes

^^ Yup. The only change is that Cespedes tops my list. I was extremely impressed with how he adjusted to the pitching. The tools are obvious. He's a stud.

That last group is going to be different for about everyone I think. Full of guys with potential but all with their own problems.

Thanks guys...I was not far off in my evaluation.

Would Medlen and Frazier be the best of the rest?

I wouldn't consider Frazier unless there's a change in CIN as he's not guaranteed playing time moving forward. At the same time, unless you're keeping 10+, there's no reason to consider him or Medlen.

Prince/Cargo/Cespedes/Harper/Craig/Zimm/Medlen/Kershaw/Chapman would be my guys at the top. There is some variation of the quality between those guys, but there is a big dropoff after those 9 in my book. Minor/Bailey/Yadi would be the next 3, then another big dropoff.
