    Keeper help in a long running head to head league


    I am in a keeper league that allows us to keep the same player at the same draft position for three consecutive years. I am on the final year of my keeper status for two players so next year I will lose any keeper I keep this year that I have kept the two prior years. Take a look at the list and tell me who you think I should keep knowing this is my last year to possibly keep Tim Lincecum (in the 9th round), and Miguel Cabrera (in the 1st). We are only allowed to keep a maximum of 3 players.

    **For the past two years everyone has kept their first rounder so something to keep in mind...

    • I would keep Lincecum again this year - as a 9th pick, you cant ask for much more

      But - I would choose your 11th pick, Heyward as a keeper and then your last pick Bautista. With 3rd Base Scarcity, and 1st Baseman quite well available, I would risk losing your first baseman and instead draft a new 1B then in the first round itself.

      Better players there than Bautista in the last round of the draft
