Help with keepers - 8 players for 7 spots

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

Help with keepers - 8 players for 7 spots

Postby tululush » Wed Jan 06, 2016 3:22 pm

In my h2h, 6x5 with obp I'm having trouble deciding on my keepers. Who is the odd man out?

Essentially, I have 8 players for 7 spots. Below are the 8 along with the round they were drafted in. If you keep that player you don't get a pick in that round.

Trout (1)
Stanton (2)
Scherzer (4)
Goldschmidt (5)
Bogaerts (11)
Arenado (13)
Buxton (21)
Rendon (24)
Yahoo 10 team, h2h, 6x5 (including obp), 7 keepers (Trout, Stanton, Goldshmidt, Rendon, Arenado, Scherzer, Buxton)

C - Wilson Ramos
1B - Paul Goldschmidt, Prince Fielder
2B - Anthony Rendon, Dustin Pedroia
3B - Nolan Arenado
SS - Danny Santana, Xander Bogaerts
OF - Mike Trout, Giancarlo Stanton, Alex Gordon, Melky Cabrera, Steven Souza

NA - Byron Buxton, Addison Ruessell

SP - Max Scherzer, Mike Fiers, Phil Hughes, Danny Salazar, Francisco Liriano, Taijuan Walker
RP - Jake McGee, Addison Reed

Tough call, I'd likely lose Buxton or Bogaerts and end up losing Bogaerts

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!

I think what it boils down to is of these three who do I throw back, Bogaerts, Buxton, Rendon?

Of those three I just love Buxton's potential. All I've heard and read is Trout 2.0. While he may not be THAT good his potential is off the charts. So I'm leaning toward keeping him.

Bogaerts or Rendon? I have know idea. Bogaerts is supposed to be a stud too at a defensive position. Rendon is, and has, put up a great season and is supposed to be such a pure hitter. But the injuries worry me and his 2014 season I can't tell if it's him or an aberration.

What kind of numbers do you see Bogaerts, Buxton, and Rendon putting up on a year to year basis?

Forget Rendon...Bogaerts is a middle order bat in Boston at a weak position... Buxton has more upside...

Throw Rendon back? Thanks!!

Crazy to think that last year he was widely considered a second round pick and now he's nothing special. What kind of numbers do you think he produces? You think 2014 was a blip?
