Who Would You Keep?
I'm having a bit of a dilemma with my keepers. My league has pretty confusing rules when it comes to keepers but, we end up keeping some players I wouldn't normally keep. I missed picking up some potential rookies at the end of the year which is what I like to pick up for my bottom tier keepers.
Anyways, my middle section of keepers are Kemp, Capuano, I. Kennedy, Teixiera and N. Walker. Kemp is an obvious keeper and I am allowed to keep 4 of them, but do you think it is stupid of me to drop the other four for players ranked below them? If I were to keep 4 f the previously mentioned I would only be able to keep 4 of the following: Harvey, Morse, Reed, Rizzo, Cashner, Werth, Bonifacio, Lincecum, Gardner and Hultzen. I have omitted the guys I have no intention on keeping.
So out of the previously mentioned I can keep 8 depending on rank. I want to keep Rizzo over Teixiera. I already have Kipnis so I don't need Walker. Which would you take?
C - Mauer
1B - Rizzo, Carpenter(2B,3B,RF)
2B - Kipnis
3B - Lawrie
SS - Rollins, Lowrie (2B)
LF - Gardner, Morse(RF)
CF - Kemp, Span
RF - Harper(CF,LF), Arcia(LF)
UTIL - Craig (1B,LF,RF)
SP - Verlander, Harvey, Davis, Cingrani
SP - Cueto, Hultzen, Lackey, Lewis(DL)
SP - Latos, Fernandez, Halladay(DL)
RP - Cook, Pestano, Bailey(DL)
RP - Reed, Madson(DL)
Kemp, Kennedy, Texiera, Rizzo, Lincecum, Gardener
After that I think it comes down to what you are trying to do. I don't know your league details but if I was looking for a few years from now Hultzen and Harvey are appealing. If you will have a decision like this every year I would probably just pick the most productive guys going into next season.
