If I needed to set my keepers today, they'd be Sonny Gray, Strasburg, Arenado, Springer, Buxton, Gomez, Brantley. Obviously I don't need to keep 4 OF, so I'm thinking of dealing Buxton, Gomez or Brantley for another piece. Additionally I can trade players for picks in the offseason (but not in-season). Our keepers aren't due until the week before Opening Day 2016. This makes trading for picks and prospects intense the weeks before our draft and preserves value (or maybe adds value) to players who I might not be able to trade for full value now (eg. Gomez).

Thoughts? Keeper suggestions? Prospect targets? Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the help with mine. This is a pretty broad question to answer (i.e. what moves might you make if you had my team?). Might try to focus the question down to a couple things you're thinking about. Without really understanding the details on how the leagues works and what is considered valuable vs. less valuable, it's pretty hard to offer suggestions. Sorry, not much, help, but wanted to let you know that I didn't ignore your question.

First let me admit that 14 team league is a lot bigger than I am used to. I think you are right to look to trade one of your OF for an upgrade somewhere else. Doesn't make sense keeping 4 OFs. With Buxton and Springer being injured right now their values may be a tad low. Gomez and Brantley have had down years, but are still solid OF keepers. I would try moving one of them and a SP and trying to get a better SP keeper than Strasburg. I would be very nervous about anchoring a pitching staff around Gray and Strasburg for next year. For a 14 team league I imagine that your bats are fine.
Help with mine:

I only play roto non keeper 1yr leagues. Will try to help out. So do you punt Saves intentionally? Agree that you need a better keeper SP. Maybe trade for Carrasco, Kubler, TWalker,
