Please rank draft options for keeper league

Postby MashinSpuds » Sat Mar 09, 2013 9:42 pm

My pick in the first round could be any one of the following. Please rank/tier them based on their skills and/or keeper value.

Jose Bautista
Prince Fielder
Carlos Gonzalez
Jason Heyward
Clayton Kershaw
Albert Pujols
Giancarlo Stanton
Justin Verlander

League/Team info: I'm in a 12 team, MLB keeper league where one can keep 7 players that are signed to three year contracts when drafted. The scoring categories are the usual 5x5 and also include OPS, Batter K's, Holds and Quality Starts. My keepers are Longoria, Cespedes, Sandoval, Altuve, Price, Lee, Moore.

Thanks for any help!

Tier 1:
Fielder/Cargo/Pujols
Tier 2:
Kershaw/Stanton/Verlander
Tier 3:
Bautista/Heyward

Also, Longoria, Cespedes, Price and Lee aren't really sleepers. Evan will go 2nd round, Price and Lee will be the among the top 10 pitchers, and Cespedes in the top 10 OF from my draft experiences

Er, didn't say "sleepers". They're my keepers. :-) Thanks for the ranking help, though.

I like lambo's tier's. I would try to get a hitter since you have 3 good/great pitchers.

Thanks for the help, guys. I am leary of drafting an older guy (Pujols, Bautista) since I get to keep them for three years, but given the skill set it may be worth a gamble over the younger guys. With your input, I'm more likely to pick a hitter now regardless. Thanks!
