I asked this last year and got some great advice (thank you!), so I though I'd ask again...
need some help figuring out my keepers in a 10 team roto league with an auction draft and $260 budget.
here is our roster
C (2), 1B (1), 2B (1), SS (1), 3B (1), CI (1), MI (1), OF (5), Util (1), P (9, and they can be either SP or RP)
we can bring back up to 7 hitters and up to 5 pitchers, so who would you choose at the given dollar values (asterisks are the guys I'm leaning towards)...
R Braun (49)*
B Harper (5)*
B Posey (25)*
B Zobrist (18)*
B Lawrie (11)*
C Headley (5)*
J Hamilton (30)
C Gomez (12)
M Cain (29)*
Gio Gonzalez (15)*
Y Darvish (11)*
M Harrison (5)
Main concern is Braun, due to high cost and potential suspension. The top guys in our league tend to go for more than their actual value, so even at $49 Braun is slightly cheaper than what he would go for in a bidding war. The other options would be to bring back Gomez at $12, Hamilton at $30, or not bringing any of them back.
A few top guys like Miggy, Kemp, Votto, Fielder, Pujols and Longoria will be available to purchase.
fyi, each year we bring someone back they cost $6 more than the previous year.
