Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
In our auction keeper league we have custom settings. So our starting budget is $500. We get 2 keepers at what they were drafted at last year, and if they were a free agent they are a dollar. And we get to keep 2 players at what yahoo says they are worth in accordance with our budget. Typically the number 1 player will be pre valued at $80(miggy or trout). You cannot keep the same rebuy more than 1 year, so the guy who drafted harper for $1 got to keep him 1 more year at that, then has to use him as a market re-buy if he wants to keep him. Well anyway:
Adam Jones: $42
Christian Yelich: $1
Trout: $42-$45(its too complicated to explain this one, but he's between those 2 prices)
Billy Hamilton: $3
Carlos Gonzalez: $58
Bumgarner: $ 35-40
These are the Rebuy prices, so let me know who you would keep for your 2 at re-buy and your 2 at market
Right now Im leaning Goldy and Trout as re-buys ($85 together). But my markets I'm stuck on, I feel like I should take Jones and Cargo because they are the best on the board, but that would take me close or over $200, leaving me only $300 to fill my roster. Maybe Billy hamilton will be cheap market? Idk let me know what you think
Trout and Goldy, then Cargo and Machado. Halving the prices for standard yahoo auctions leaves cargo at $29, which is a good bargain. I expect machado to outperform that $18 (or $9 for regular auction) value. Hamilton I expect to struggle a little bit this year, and next year you'd have to keep him at re-buy prices so don't know if it's worth it.

Im a little worried about Machado, and if i had to i think i could still get him in the draft for under $30. I wouldn't have to keep billy hamilton next year if i didn't want. The only rule with keepers is that you can't re-buy the same player more than once at the re-buy price. SO if billy is pretty cheap I'm going to grab him simply for the sb alone, and maybe good trade bait. And if i market billy for under 10 and he breaks out i can re-buy him for that.

Thanks man, I was thinking about mach ado, but that injury scares me. Im going to wait to see what Billy is valued at, only would keep him for $20 and under. Then its between Jones and Cargo depending on their prices. I would go Cargo 100% if it weren't for injuries. But at least I know Goldy and Trout are the backbone for me for the next few years, now i can look for $1 guys every year
