#3 Pick in Keeper League, where would you go?

Postby Bravos of Steel » Thu Feb 21, 2013 11:49 am

Hey Guys,

I have drawn the #3 overall pick in this year's H2H yahoo draft (standard 5x5 scoring). We are able to keep 3 players on our team from the previous year, and I am keeping Miguel Cabrera, Mike Trout, and Allen Craig (there are somewhat complicated keeper rules). I'm pretty jacked about having the #3 spot because I'd love to be able to add a top talent to that excellent trio of keepers.

I'm projecting the best available players to be (in no particular order):

Albert Pujols
Andrew McCutchen
Prince Fielder
Justin Verlander
Clayton Kershaw
Giancarlo Stanton
Adrian Beltre
Justin Upton

I'm having a tough time ranking these players. Do I want another huge bat, potential 1B? Do I go after a SP stud? How would you rank these players? Leave a link, and I'll certainly help you as much as I can. Thanks! ;-D
Beautiful, Beautiful Family Guy

Well...I'm guessing you are going to use Craig in the OF so that doesn't really mean you need one.
I'd go with Prince or Pujols whichever if either fall to ya. If you don't get either I'd take Cutch and have the best OF in your league. You could always use Craig at 1b...and take Cutch if niether 1b fall. Craig is no slouch at 1b...he might even outpace Pujols this year if he can stay healthy.

Can't really go wrong here with Pujols, Verlander, Kershaw or McCutchen imo. Depends on what you want to keep position-wise.

Stanton is not bad either but a notch or two below the other 4.

Beltre is a bit too old to include in the first set but is absolutely solid as well.

I would pass on Fielder at this point (worried about a drop off in a few years due to his body type) and I would want no part of Upton.
