Keeper choice

Postby Frank Rizzo » Wed Mar 14, 2018 9:33 am

League size/style in signature below. Keep 1 and currently leaning toward keeping Freddie Freeman.....but.....

Other keeper options:
-Verlander in the 5th
-Carlos Martinez in the 7th
-McCullers in the 12th
-Paxton in the 14th

Guys in our league will not veer to far away from Yahoos' rankings.

I am picking 3rd. After getting everyone's keepers and taking educated guesses on who guys will take I have the following options, based on who I think is available.

Option 1: Keep Freeman in the 2nd. Take either Altuve, Turner, or Harper with my 1st pick. Looking at potentially getting Bellinger, Springer or Jose Ramirez with my 3rd pick.
Most likely something like this:
1 - Turner
2 - Freeman (K)
3 - Bellinger

Option 2: Keep C Martinez in the 7th. Take either Altuve, Turner, or Harper with my 1st pick. With my 2nd pick I'm pretty sure I could get Freeman, Machado, or Lindor. 3rd pick would again be Bellinger/Springer/Jose Ramirez.
Most likely something like this:
2-Machado (he's 22nd overall on Yahoo)

7-Carlos Martinez (K)

I was under the impression Freddie Freeman was a no brainer in the 2nd for me, but a deeper dive into how the first 3 rounds will probably work out and I'm 2nd guessing.

Which option is the right one to take and why?
Yahoo 10 Team H2H, 5 x 5, Outfielders position specific. Keep 1 each year in the round he was drafted.

C - Salvador Perez KC - C
1B - Matt Olson Oak - 1B
2B - Ketel Marte Ari - 2B,SS,CF
SS - Javier Báez ChC - SS
3B - José Ramírez Cle - 3B
LF - J.D. Martinez Bos - LF,RF
CF - Ramón Laureano Oak - CF,RF
RF - Max Kepler Min - CF,RF
Util - Nelson Cruz Min - Util

SP - Luis Castillo Cin - SP
SP - Patrick Corbin Was - SP
SP - Shane Bieber Cle - SP (10th round keeper)
SP - Kenta Maeda Min - SP,RP
RP - Taylor Rogers Min - RP
Bench - Merrill Kelly Ari - SP
Bench - Frankie Montas Oak - SP
Bench - Zac Gallen Ari - SP
Bench - Aaron Civale Cle - SP
Bench - Jake Odorizzi Min - SP

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.
