I'd keep Cespedes. He is a stud and definite 20/20 guy and maybe a 25/25 guy.

please help mine and read my last post thanks.

I'd go with Choo and Cespedes and drop Butler.

I think between Cespedes, Wieters and Choo.

I think Cespedes has the highest upside, but that injury bug is always in my head until I see a full healthy season. Choo isn't as high (Top 25 vs Top 20 OF or better with Cespedes) but I think I feel a little more comfortable with him. Wieters is solid and might still have room to grow, but catcher seems a little deeper this year, especially in a 10-team league.

I think Cespedes if you want to max your upside of the three, Choo next unless you want to lock up that catcher spot with a quality player.

Good luck.

I would choose Cespedes slightly over Choo myself. I think it is a risk vs. reward situation...Cespedes has higher potential while Choo is probably more likely to provide consistent numbers. I would take the risk on Cespedes.

Help please...Thanks!

This, don't drop a 20 hr .300 hitter. But I would go with Cespedes over Kipnis.
