Who to keep based on auction value? WHIR

Postby cinfante54 » Mon Feb 19, 2018 10:46 am

Hi all,

Defending champ in a 16 team H2H. Locked into W. Contreras as one keeper for $16 (cannot change). Looking for opinions on who I should keep (Player and league value next to player)

Betts - $51
Kluber - $37
Votto - $33
D. Murphy - $24
Cain - $15
McCutchen - $17
Quintana - $16
Arrieta - no value yet since he's not on a team but I would assume he's late teens early 20s

I'm currently going between Votto and Betts. I've had Betts for the last three years. On one hand I feel like that's a fair price for a player for his caliber, on the other hand I think Votto is a better value due to the lack of highly productive 1B in comparison to OFs who can produce if I didn't keep Betts.

Thoughts?

WHIR!

Cain- Murphy and Kluber. You need at least one ace. Mookie at 51 is a bit high depending on leagues but I would throw him back and try to get him back around the same price. Or why not try to package a couple of guys for an upgrade

Thanks for your input. I forgot to mention that I can only keep one other player. That's why I'm having such a hard time.

I would keep Kluber at 37. Likely going to offer you the best return. Betts' price is too high imo and Votto, while fairly priced, is not likely to earn a lot more than that.

I'm currently doing my draft prep and inserting everyone's keepers and the following OF are being kept:
Mike Trout
Giancarlo Stanton
Bryce Harper
Charlie Blackmon
Aaron Judge
Yoenis Cespedes
Kris Bryant


Given the lack of top available talent at the OF position going into the draft, should I keep Betts instead of Kluber? Being that Betts will surely go over $60 in the draft, will it be a value getting him at $51?

Hitting categories are R, H, HR, RBI, SB, K, AVG, OBP, XBH


Current pitchers being kept are Kershaw, Bumgarner, Scherzer, Severino so there would be plenty of pitchers to draft if I do not end up with Kluber.

Plugging in my categories into Fangraphs, they project Betts' value at $55 for my league.

First off, Kluber is one of the top 4 (maybe top 2) pitchers in the league. There may be next tier SPs around, but not likely to put up near the numbers of Kluber.

Second, why would you pay $51 to get $55 in Betts? Simply go buy him back if you want him that bad.

I'd go with Votto for value. Betts is good but that price is too much for my liking.
