Oscar Taveras in a keeper league

Postby br549 » Sat Feb 09, 2013 1:17 pm

I'm in a league where we can keep players forever, with no draft or round penalty, and there's no salary issues to worry about either. I've got Kershaw, and I'll probably have him for the next decade.

In a league like this (5x5 scoring) when I should be looking to draft Taveras? Waiting a few months for him to get called up is nothing compared to the potential years and years of having him on my roster if he lives up to even half of the expectations.

24 man roster. 2 DL spots. 12 teams. Keep 10 each year.

I play in a league almost exactly like this. If it is anything like mine he'll be gone at least by the 2nd round after keepers.

Stashing him in a deep league is a good idea, but don't reach spend a late round flier.

With only 10 keepers, 12 teams, unless he goes Bryce Harper, he won't be a keeper.
But i do like him, and he will go quick in any keeper.
