Who to keep?

Postby puffins » Mon Feb 18, 2013 2:56 pm

Hi all! I play in a 10-team, head-to-head league in which you can keep up to 4 players. Which four out of this group of players would you keep? There are a couple of obvious standouts here, but then I think I have like 3 or 4 that cluster together, so any advice is much appreciated!

Pujols
Votto
Goldschmidt
B.J. Upton
Desmond Jennings
Bryce Harper
Encarnarcion (E5)
Hosmer
Salvador Perez
Cliff Lee
Papelbon
Price

Price, Pujols, Harper, Votto. These are a great core to work with. If your not sold on Harper, then select Lee.
Dwight Schrute: Michael, you forgot to mention the herpes.
Michael Scott: It didn't come out organically.

Keep Pujols, Votto, Price and Bryce.

Just a tip, move this thread to the Draft/Trade/Keepers thread and you'll get more help

Those are the 4 for me, look around your league to see who doesn't have 4 great protectables, if there is one try to take his best for 2 of your players..ie..e5 and harper for braun, cutch, trout and miggy type players.....just a thought

Thanks for the response so far--you are confirming what I've been thinking. Great idea on trying to package two of my 2nd tier guys for someone in tier one. E5 might garner some interest given how huge a season he had last year and trading him would make sense since I'm reluctant to make him one of my keepers (I'm worried that this year there will be a regression towards the mean--do others think so too?). Of course, Pujols will probably kill me for the first month and a half again this year.

Pujols
Votto
Price
Harper
------------
Lee
E5

I'm not sure if you can keep fewer than 4 players and draft ahead of others. If so, definitely try to package Lee/E5 or some combination with Harper for an elite player. It might be that the guys with weak keepers will just keep 2-3 guys and the get an early pick if your league allows that, so they just might wait it out to try to get them in the draft (not sure of your league requires four keepers). It might be a fine line, but I still think a deal is there to be made.

Good luck.
