In a ten teamer in which you have great middle infield depth, you can lose Prado. I'd add Lester for Prado.

That let's you hang onto Wheeler for a few more starts, which you can probably bench him for.

I'd personally try to pair him with Altuve for a better single SP, but in the end, you're ok just dropping Wheeler. I assume you've got great options on the wire in a 10 teamer, and it wouldn't be surprising if he didn't break out in Year 1. Still, wait for as long as you can.

No problem dropping him. In a ten team league he is nothing better than a spot starter and I would be surprised if anyone picked him up.
