I need help picking keepers.
League info: Pretty standard Yahoo H2H league, 10 teams (expanding to 12 this season), standard 5x5 categories, and 4 OF instead of 3.
With the new teams being brought into the league this season, a rule has been made that no one can keep anyone who would be a first round pick...meaning all first round picks from last year, and anyone who was kept in the second round last year (because keepers move up a round every year)
My choices are :
Brian McCann - 2nd
Curtis Granderson - 5th
Mike Bourn - 14th
David Ortiz - 15th
Neil Walker - FA
Jose Bautista - FA
Johnny Peralta - FA
Juan Pierre - FA
Luke Scott - FA
CC Sabathia - 2nd
Roy Halladay - 4th
Jair Jurrjens - 9th
Edwin Jackson - 12th
Huston Street - 13th
Gavin Floyd - 19th
Ted Lilly - FA
Daniel Hudson - FA
Trevor Cahill - FA
Gio Gonzalez - FA
Chris Perez - FA
Brandon Lyon - FA
Anyone who was a free agent pick up (marked with the "FA") is a keeper in the 10th round. If I keep more than 1, the second is kept in the 9th, third in the 8th, etc.
Halladay and Bautista are definites. And Maybe Ortiz and Floyd just because of where I can keep them at.
Like you said, Halladay and Bautista are definites, and I would think at round 19 Floyd is a definite.
Ortiz is a tough decision, I would not keep him just b/c I like to be more flexible with the Util spot, but his RBI total might be ridiculous this year if Crawford and A-Gon are hitting in front of him.
I personally would keep Edwin Jackson in round 12. I think he'll have a breakout year being under Cooper and being a contract year. The White Sox offense looks very good this year and the Indians and Royals offenses look fairly weak (if Sizemore comes back strong than Indians might be better).
The only other guy I'd consider is Cahill. Pitching in Oakland is a big plus, just don't know if you could still get him in the ninth round (since Bautista is a lock at 10).
So, Halladay, Bautista, and Floyd for sure. Maybe on Ortiz, Jackson, and Cahill. No to everyone else. Probably didn't help you at all...haha!
