Pick 6 Keepers

Postby converge241 » Mon Dec 23, 2013 6:17 pm

Note one of the 6 has to be exposed for teams who finished below you to pick from, like a rule 5 draft, I finished 3rd of 15th

Standard 5x5 roto, 15 teams, can keep players forever just their cost to keep can go up or down at the end of every "contract" (a 2 or 3 year deal)

In order of most expensive, not "quality"
Wainwright -1
Freeman -3
Hamels - 4
Alex Gordon -4
Prado -9
Puig -14
Desmond - 16
Austin Jackson -16
Medlen -21
Myers -24
Springer -25

So what 6 would you keep?

Of course please keep in mind with a cost to keep system the guys in the actual 1st round wont be as good as Wainwright for example. Reference point of best available from last year would be like a CC Sabbathia. Completely understand the input though if someone still thinks that too high a price on that example.

Thanks!

Wainwright -1 ;-D
Freeman -3 ;-D
Hamels - 4
Alex Gordon -4
Prado -9
Puig -14 ;-D
Desmond - 16 ;-D
Austin Jackson -16 ;-D
Medlen -21
Myers -24 ;-D
Springer -25

I would then expose Wainwright. I don't love keeping him at this price but I don't see options i like better than going into the draft with your Ace. Also doubt any other team will be willing to give up their first to land Wainwright so it helps with that as well.
