My annual Keeper validation request!

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

My annual Keeper validation request!

Postby AdmiralTrey » Tue Feb 04, 2020 8:09 am

Sir Grey and the rest of the Razzball maestros, I need your help once more! I have emerged from my typical lurking while fanatically reading everything to ask for help with my keepers this year.....

It's a 12 team standard 5X5 H2H league. There are no restrictions on how many years players are kept, and no bonus for keeping players drafted late, as they're simply kept in the first four rounds of the draft.

Each team keeps four players in the first four rounds. Then, shalt the teams keep four players, no more, no less. Four shall be the number teams shalt keep, and the number of the keepers shall be four. Five shalt teams not keep, nor either keepest teams three, excepting that the teams then proceed to keep four. Six is right out!

I've eliminated non-possibilities and I'm left with:

Mike Trout OF yes!
Javier Baez SS ...probably.
Kris Bryant 3B/OF ...possibly?
Eloy Jimenez OF the dongs are tempting, but...
Marcus Semien SS but he's just a worse Baez basically.

Jack Flaherty SP most likely yes!
Luis Castillo SP too pitching heavy?
Aaron Nola SP see above but with less excitement and conviction



Mike Trout is absolutely a keeper, obviously, as he has been literally his entire career on my team. I'd like to keep Flaherty as well. Javier Baez seems like an almost certain lock too. But while Kris Bryant exists, I could secure two aces by keeping Castillo instead and effectively ignore pitching for many rounds in the draft... Or I could bank on Eloy's massive power over Bryant coming back with a healthy and strong shoulder... Or I could say screw pitching and keep Trout, Baez, Bryant, and Eloy. What to do!?!?

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!
