5x5 keeper help

Postby werd » Thu Feb 03, 2011 1:06 am

Hey I'm in a roto standard 5x5 keeper league. We keep 5 players. This is the current list of guys I've narrowed it down to. Which 5 would everyone keep? Rounds kept in parenthesis

Jered Weaver(8)
Mark Reynolds (11)
Justin Verlander(11)
Kendry Morales (13)
Adam Jones (14)
Phil Hughes (20)
Tommy Hanson (25)
Mike Stanton (27)

*note if I kept both reynolds and verlander one would be 10th other 11th

I'm thinking, Weaver, Verlander, Morales, Hanson, Stanton.

Let me know what you all think is best, I'm still fairly new to keepers. Also based on the 5 I keep what would be your strategy going into the draft(ie what to target early). Thanks!

Yeah, letting go of hughes in the 20th is certainly going to hurt though. As for draft day, I'm thinking with SP so deep and since i'm already keeping 3 to go big on bats early, does that seem like the right move to you?

I agree with your 5 and yes, I'd probably take hitters 9 of the 1st 10 picks
When asking for roster advice in these pages, remember there are thousands of different sets of league rules & many different active roster settings. If you want the best replies, be sure to include your leagues particulars in the original post
