Pick 0-3 keeper league (WHIR)

Postby Baldrick » Tue Mar 05, 2013 10:03 pm

This is a 20 team H2H league, 6x6 (OPS and HLD are the only additions).

We are allowed to keep 0-3 keepers. The catch is that you lose a draft pick 2 rounds earlier then when they were selected (e.g. B.J. Upton drafted 3rd round, selected as a keeper, you lose your 1st round pick).

So due to the rules I cannot keep Granderson or Halladay. My roster below is my team in order from the 3rd round onward. Free agent pick-ups are not permitted as keepers. Players in red are those whom I had dropped at some point.

3. Brett Lawrie (58)
4. Ben Zobrist (63)
5. J.J. Putz (98)
6. Sergio Santos (103)
7. Jesus Montero (138)
8. Cory Luebke (143)
9. Kenley Jansen (178)
10. Josh Willingham (183)
11. Tyler Clippard (218)
12. David Robertson (223)
13. Adam Dunn (258)
14. Eric Thames (263)
15. Chris Capuano (298)
16. Eric O'Flaherty (303)
17. Cliff Pennington (338)
18. Travis Snider (343)
19. Henderson Alvarez (378)
20. Michael Pineda (383)
21. Victor Martinez (418)
22. Drew Pomeranz (423)
23. Guillermo Moscoso (458)
24. Tyler Skaggs (463)
25. Jim Thome (498)
26. Danny Hultzen (503)
27. Manny Acosta (538)

I'm thinking perhaps Willingham and Dunn as likely carryovers. That means I lose my 8th and 11th round picks. Could really use some advice. Last season was disastrous finishing 14th overall after getting the 3rd seed (out in the quarters, finished 6th) the season before in this league.

WHIR as best I can.

What I want to know is how did Vmat even get drafted last year (autodraft? :-b ).

In a 20-team, Vmart for sure. After that, I think I agree w/Willingham. An 8th-rd pick represents a player somewhere in the #141-#160 range, so Willingham gives you good value there. I like Vmart over Dunn. Great potential value there.

VMart is awesome value there, so I'd keep him for sure. The other three guys I like at their slots are WIllingham, Pineda and Jansen.

I missed most of the draft, however I took VMart myself (missed rounds 1-20) with the thinking that he could perhaps return towards the end of last season or at the very least I had him as a possible keeper for a 19th round pick. So you are basically saying VMart, Willingham and perhaps Dunn?
