25 Keeper 12-team Dynasty

Postby The Loveable Losers » Tue Oct 31, 2017 11:24 am

5x5 h2h league, standard categories. This was an 8th place team last year but it's young and has the building blocks to be a lot better so I'm thinking I'm competing.

I've got 17 keepers pretty much locked in:
Clayton Kershaw LAD - SP
Max Scherzer Was - SP ?
José Ramírez Cle - 2B,3B,OF ?
Dee Gordon Mia - 2B ?
Joey Gallo Tex - 1B,3B,OF ?
Starling Marte Pit - OF ?
Jean Segura Sea - 2B,SS ?
Lorenzo Cain KC - OF ?
Manuel Margot SD - OF
Edwin Encarnacion Cle - 1B ?
Miguel Cabrera Det - 1B
Kyle Hendricks ChC - SP ?
Adam Eaton Was - OF ?
Eric Thames Mil - 1B,OF
Tim Anderson CWS - SS ?
Odúbel Herrera Phi - OF ?
Whit Merrifield KC - 2B,OF

That leaves me to pick 8 of the rest:
Yadier Molina StL - C
J.P. Crawford Phi - 3B,SS
Hyun-Jin Ryu LAD - SP
Brad Hand SD - RP
Daniel Robertson TB - 2B,3B,SS ?
Brett Gardner NYY - OF
Jesse Winker Cin - OF ?
Trent Clark Mil - OF ?
Dan Straily Mia - SP ?
Chase Anderson Mil - SP
Andrew Cashner Tex - SP
Brad Peacock Hou - SP,RP
Anthony DeSclafani Cin - SP ?
Franklyn Kilome Phi - SP
Grant Holmes Oak - SP ?

If I wasn't competing then I'd have to hang on to high upside guys like Trent Clark, Franklyn Kilome, and Grant Holmes but that would seriously cut in to keeping other attractive names on the list. I'd probably lean Molina, Crawford, Ryu, Hand, Winker, Peacock, Kilome, Holmes at this point but would love to get some other opinions.

I think you have to keep Molina (C is always a tough position to man), Peacock, Chase Anderson (was awesome when healthy), Gardner (solid if not spectacular contributor), Crawford and Hand in a league this deep based on current performance or potenial. The last 2 you can debate and it really comes down to who you think offers the most potential\value. Straily was decent but I question how much upside there is there. Cashner has been mediocre at best so he can be cut imo. Same for Desclafani and his injuries. I would also toss Ryu back as he is too injury prone and no spring chicken at 30 at this point. The others I really do not have much of a feel for as to how good they are likely to be.
