    Keeper Help

    Who would you keep? 12 Team H2H 10 category standard. Keep 5 for round they were previously drafted (dropped players count as final round selection). Here are the players that I think are possibilities and the rounds that I would give up. Thanks!

    Batters:
    Trout (1)
    Votto (1)
    Stanton (2)
    Bruce(4)
    Ryan Zimmerman (4)
    Hanley Ramirez (8)
    Wil Myers (21)
    David Wright (26)
    Profar (26)
    Jason Heyward (26)
    Joe Mauer (26)

    Pitchers:

    Gio Gonzalez (5)
    King Felix (3)
    Wainwright (4)
    Julio Tehran (24)
    Shelby Miller (17)

    • Trout (1), Votto (1),David Wright (26),Joe Mauer (26) or Heyward (26), and King Felix (3) or Wainwright (4) . That will give you 7 picks in the top 10 plus one in all the rounds until round 26. Including, the 1 in the first 65 picks (12 in the league keeping 5 each means not more then the top 60 would have been picked when you go for your 3rd or 4th round pick.)

    • Just to be clear on the rules of my league and perhaps provide more clarity:

      Multiple players can be kept even if they were drafted in the same round (or picked up as free agent). So essentiall if I were to keep two Round 1 players (Trout and Votto in this example) I would give up a Round 1 and a Round 2 using Round X for first player kept and round X +1 for the second keeper.

      From the responses given thus far it seems that Trout, Wright, and Hanley are definite keepers which I would agree.

      My next group to keep 2 out of seem to be Myers, Mauer, Miller, Profar, & Teheran based on the responses below, which I greatly appreciate. Personally I am leaning towards keeping one pitcher to have an ace which from past experiences is key. I have successfully utilized punting saves in the past as well if that matters and while never going into a year thinking I will do that I always wait on saves and pick up guys that tend not to keep their jobs.

    • If I understand it correctly, you could only keep 1 out of the 4 of Wright, Profar, Heyward, and Mauer since they ALL would require the SAME draft pick be used to keep them. If that is correct, then here are my answers:

      Trout, Hanley, Wright, Shelby, and Teheran.

      If I am INCORRECT, and you CAN keep more than 1 out of that foursome, then my answer is as follows:

      Trout, Hanley, Wright, Mauer, and Teheran.

    • Trout, Myers, Wright, Profar, Mauer. This is assuming you'd lose a 2nd rd selection keeping felix. Teheran and Miller are also considerations.

    • Myers, Wright and Hanley are automatic for me, and I don't think I could throw Trout back even if you do have much better value players.

      And in a standard H2H league you want to keep one pitcher at most. But in your case, I wouldn't keep any. Felix, Wainwright and other similar pitchers will be available with the picks you'd be giving up to keep them. And I need a longer track record before I'd trust Miller or Teheran. Personally I'd keep Mauer instead as well. I actually think Heyward is a better keeper, but you can't keep a 3rd OF.

      With Mauer's impending move to 1B I'd expect a healthier year and a career high in plate appearances. I'd expect him to hit .320+ with 20 HR and approach his career highs in R and RBI with the extra AB.

    • Mauer
      Wright
      Trout
