Cespedes will have a 30/30 year, awesome from pick#11. Jones will have similar #s and might be worth #6 but his production is easily replaced in rd 6 or maybe u snag another solid option. Of course beachy is good but irrelevant for most of this season. Only keep him if the pick is beyond 20

I agree with the others who said that Jones and Cespedes should be kept over Beachy. Beachy is going to be out for a good amount of time and because of this he can be redrafted in a later round.

Jones and Cespedes will not be available in the rounds you are keeping them at. Jones is averaging a 3rd/4th round pick and Cespedes is going in the 5th.

I disagree. Even with it being an OBP league, where Jones takes a hit in value, his production is not easily replaceable in round 6.

Still disagree. Jones in rd 6 is very nice but of is pretty deep and u ca find value from other positions in 6, possible a strong (not elite) pitcher

In a league where you are giving up draft picks for keepers, a 6th round pick is considerably worse than a 6th round pick in a standard redraft league (normally).

I don't know the specifics of this particular league, but a lot of players are kept at bargain prices (generally). If he puts Adam Jones back into the pool, there is almost no chance he is able to redraft him or a similar player in round 6. A lot of good talent will be kept, so that would push up Jones average draft position to an even earlier round. If Jones is being drafted as a 3rd/4th rounder in a normal redraft league, then he will certainly be drafted earlier in a league like this. Probably in the 1st or 2nd round.

Jones is a power hitting OF with some speed heading into his age 27 season. He could easily put up 85/30/90/15 and hit .280. You're not easily replacing that from anywhere at that point in the draft (and there's upside past those numbers too). OF isn't as deep as you think either - the field grows category warts pretty quick compared to other years.
