Keepers Due Sunday: Help Me Pick!

Postby tnbrave » Thu Mar 08, 2018 7:08 pm

Need help with choosing Keepers in a 10-team h2h weekly points league--not an OBP league but close to it. Keep a minimum of 5, but can keep up to 8. No cost or anything and can keep as long as I want. Here is who I am considering:

C: (Contreras)
1B: Bellinger
2B:
SS: C. Seager
3B:
OF (3): Trout
DH: (Cruz)
Bench (5):
SP (4): Scherzer, (Keuchel), (Cole)
RP (2): (Chapman)
Bench (4):

The players in bold are definite Keepers. The players in (parenthesis) are possible Keepers. I lean toward keeping both Cruz and Keuchel (for a total of 6), but am not sure about Contreras, Cole, or Chapman. What do you all think?

Thanks! WHIR

If there is no penalty or anything for keeping players why not keep 8? I mean if you aren't losing anything for keeping them I would keep the 4 your have plus Contreras, Chapman, Cole, Keuchel

80 keepers max, if every team keeps 8.
You could make a case, Cruz is the only guy of the 4, in the top 80.
I would take the 3 extra picks, 2 if you kept Cruz, and probably get better then Cole and Keuchel.

Contreras and Cruz are locks. If there is no cost to keeping players, then Keuchel and Chapman should be kept as well. I am not a Cole fan.

Thanks all! The general consensus seems to be keep Keuchel and possibly Cruz and Contreras. Are they worth 5th, 6th, and 7th rd picks? And then it is mixed on Chapman and Cole.

I'm leaning toward keeping the top 4 above and then Keuchel, Cruz, Contreras, and Chapman. That would basically be my 5-8 round draft picks. But I could throw Cruz, Contreras, and Chapman back into the draft and hope for better players. But they are decent options at those rounds (6-8), aren't they? Thoughts?

Thanks again!

Someone else suggested adding Cano or Merrifield to the list of potential keepers. Would you consider either of them over Contreras, Keuchel, Chapman, or Cruz?

Thanks!

I agree with the ones in bold. as for the rest, sure, Contreras, why not. In my experience with points H2H points leagues, pitching makes or breaks you. Two start weeks with Keuchel and Scherzer would be tough to beat given the rest of your keepers, so I'd definitely keep him. Cruz would depend on any negative point categories (K's or GIDP for example). I'd be on the fence about him. But without knowing what the rest of the draft pool looks like, it's hard for me to fully weigh in.

Thanks for your comment on my Kershaw/Bregman deal.

Along with your four, I would keep Contreras, Keuchel. Cruz would be worth it too. Don't know if the rest are worth 8th rd pick. Chapman, maybe.
