It's a 14 team mixed h2h points keeper. We have a $260 budget for 26 players with unlimited keepers. I already have for next year Puig $6, Goldschmidt $19, Harvey $13, Jose Fernandez $15. I am selling for next year and was offered Ian Desmond at $12 next year for MY Wil Myers at $20 next year, Dickey $11 and Lowrie $7. Is this a no-brainer or is Desmond not worth it? OR is Wil Myers a keeper at $20???

WHIR!!!

Like you said in my post you are a huge Desmond fan. I also am a fan and believer in him to be a SS option of choice. I think $20 for myers as a keeper is expensive. You will base his value off of half a season essentially where Desmond has more of a record. Desmond is also a SS which is rare to find quality compared to OF. Granted it's unlimited keepers, but OF is usually easier to fill in than finding a SS - who do you currently have at SS? That may also influence the choice. However, regardless of who is at SS already for you I still think $20 for myers is expensive... That's more than goldy and goldy is a top player. So I think $12 is good for Desmond good value

Thanks for your help on mine

Desmond is a much better value then Myers. Myers seems high at $20. I would rather have Desmond at those prices.

I wouldn't make the deal. With unlimited keepers, you are giving up too much for Desmond. Lowrie has some value for $7 at short, Dickey is OK for $11, and Myers is looking like a stud, even with the $20 price tag. I'd hold out.

I think I would hold tight. I like Desmond but he can be super streaky and its looking like Myers is the best of the bunch even at $20.

This. Lowrie is no slouch at SS and at only $7 thats a great deal.

I would not do the deal. Desmond isn't anything to write home about - and like many have said, Jed at that price isn't bad. I don't think Myers at $20 is a keeper - but if he continues to rake like he has over the past few weeks - I bet you can get something good for him. good luck and help with mine if you can!

I would not take this deal, with unlimited keepers you have good value for what you have right now. $20 is a little high for Myers, but I think that he is going to come through. This is just too much to give up for Desmond.

He's asking for too much. Lowrie and Dickey for Desmond is a bit more fair.
