IMO you can draft anyone and can work around system limitations but pre-picking up folks period after the draft or reserving? Not so much
Just IMHO of course but I like to have that distinction in the weight of a draft pick investment.
When you have a league like mine (Keep 15, 10 round draft), and you have guys who have all these extra picks at the top from last season, it is tough to just say to them "Sorry, but you're screwed." That is why we need a year advance on what will happen with prospects. Now, we may be locked into using replacement players every draft just so our picks have the highest value possible. When you start throwing guys like Lindor, Starling, etc in there for 1-2 seasons and then don't, it is jarring.
Keeping 15 guys in a 14-team league, that is 210 players being kept. There are always a few veterans that will help, but it is mostly about new prospects in the early part of the draft.
