Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
For next year, rank these keeper options on value: Puig $5. Iwakuma $5. Bryce Harper $15. Harvey $10. miguel cabrera $40. Strasburg $22. jordan zimmerman $1. carlos gomez $10. josh donaldson $5. ian desmond $11. pedro alvarez $10.
Our league is a standard set up for the most part, but due to keeper inflation, players have gone for as much #$%$
If I had to rank them:
1. Puig- $5- highest upside for lowest cost
2. Harper- $15- another year older, injuries would be behind him
3. Zimmerman- $1- just flat out cheap, and the Nats will improve
4. Harvey- $10- a great price for an ace with presumably no innings cap next year
5. Gomez- $10- contributes everywhere, but is less consistent than what Harper/Puig would give you
6. Donaldson- $5- I'm buying his talent, but I'm always weary about keeping a first year breakout guy with lower pedigree
7. Iwakuma- $5- Gotta see how he holds up as a starter over a full season
...the rest are up in the air. Stras at $22 would be my least favorite of the group.
If Jordan Zimmerman is $1, there is no way any other player can come close.
1. Jordan Zimmerman
2. Matt Harvey
3. Ian Desmond
4. Carlos Gomez
I don't know what your keeper budget is, so drawing a cut-off line is impossible. Puig, while exciting, is still a raw talent who has made a number of bad decisions and poor fielding plays. He is a sensation right now, and IMO has peak value RIGHT NOW. I would trade Puig for either a) players to help me win THIS year, or b) players who have juicy-LOW keeper costs like Zimmerman and harvey and Desmond.
