Which Keeper? Chapman, Goldschmidt, or Kipnis?

Postby jdowling24 » Fri Mar 01, 2013 12:49 pm

I'm allowed two keepers in my head-to-head league. I am keeping Bryce Harper. For my second keeper slot, I am choosing between Aroldis Chapman (P), Paul Goldschmidt (1B), and Jason Kipnis (2B). Please help! Thanks!

As a general rule I'd go hitting over pitching. So between Kipnis and Goldschmidt I'd go Kipnis. Better value at 2B and I'm guessing you'll have a shot at getting Goldschmidt back.

Do you have any other option?
I'd go Kipnis on positional scarcity.

There is no value in any of them so go with the one who can provide you with the biggest reward, Goldschmidt.

Comes down to Goldschmidt and Kipnis. I like both quite a bit, but Goldschmidt is a little bit more projectable.

Goldschmidt for value, and maybe Kipnis for positional shizz, but mostly Goldy. ;-D

Thanks, guys. for each keeper I lose a pick 2 rounds above where I picked the player last year. For Kipnis I'd lose a round 12 pick, for Goldschmidt a round 14 pick.
