Need 8 keepers WHIR

Postby Lips » Thu Feb 22, 2018 1:07 am

standard 5x5 roto.

Keep 8 players- after three years, must go back in the draft. This year has many top players going back into the draft (Goldschmidt, Kershaw, Scherzer, Trout, Sale, Betts, Blackmon, Bryant, Syndergaard, Altuve, Carrasco, Greinke, and a handful more).

The group I can choose my 8 from are:

Eric Hosmer
Byron Buxton
A.J. Pollack
Jose Berrios
Eddie Rosario
Raisel Iglesias
Cody Allen
Jake Odorizzi
Trevor Story
Eric Thames
Justin Bour
Nick Williams

Which 8 should I keep? I'm confident on 4 (Hosmer, Buxton, Pollack, and Berrios) and have 6 more I can't decide between. Any commentary to explain your choices would be appreciated. If you need help with yours, leave a link to your question.

The group I can choose my 8 from are:

Eric Hosmer ;-D not elite 1B production but he is worth keeping
Byron Buxton ;-D Maybe I have been burned too many times by his prospect status. I don't trust him!
A.J. Pollack ;-D Probably your top keeper
Jose Berrios ;-D I think this is the year he gets it going.
Eddie Rosario :-t nope
Raisel Iglesias :-t worth owning but not worth keeping
Cody Allen ;-D If you have to keep 8
Jake Odorizzi :-t no
Trevor Story ;-D Not fond of him as a keeeper but he did have that one big year
Eric Thames :-t Now the Brewers are trying Braun at 1B
Justin Bour ;-D If you have to keep 8
Nick Williams ;-D If you have to keep 8

If your league allows you to keep less than 8 and pick before the teams that keep 8 I'd say keep no more than Pollack and Berrios and go from there. Most of these guys aren't worth a top 8 round pick, Hosmer may be but you can probably do better.
