I never decide on keepers until spring. You never know how the end of the year or off-season will go. As for Realmuto and Osuna, they are good players but I almost never keep closers or catchers. It would take a Posey or that level player to have me keep one of those positions. I did pick up Bregman as I really need help at 3rd and he has potential to contribute. If not I was running out of time to use the waiver pick anyway. Thanks all.

I am in first place by 3.5 points over 2nd, 5 over 3rd and 7 over 4th. No cost to keep a player. You choose 8 players and can keep them forever. I look at Bregman as a possible opportunity. My 3B is weak and Bregman will get 3B eligibility soon. 1st year contributors are rare but they do happen, hello Mike Trout.

11 team, Standard 5x5 roto league, keep 8 players. Is Bregman worth using a #1 waiver call on? I was going to use it on Archer but passed and got him anyway. Is Bregman worth using it on? and if so who would you drop? I lean toward Peralta or Beltran. Thanks.
3B Valencia (1B, 3B, LF)
LF Saunders (LF, RF)
CF Springer (CF, RF)
Util Encarnacion (1B)
Util Odor (2B)
Bench Myers (1B, CF), Baez (2B, 3B, SS), KDavis (LF), Peralta (DL, will activate Friday; LF, RF)
DL Brantley (LF, CF)
SP Strassburg, Carrasco, Hill, Lackey, Hammel, Archer, Happ
RP Osuna, Maurer, Kintzel

I took the risky route and did not use my waiver call hoping Archer would make it through and he did. I picked him up off the wire.
The question now is whether I should use the waiver call on Bregman (SS Hou), who will be called up today. I would drop Valencia as Bregman is supposed to be at 3rd at least to start so he would fill that gap in my line-up should he produce. I am leaning heavily toward grabbing Bregman.

Yes, in my league that is the way it works. That is why I hang on to that #1 like gold whenever I can get it.

I am in first place in ERA and WHIP, close to 1st wins. Mid pack in Saves and Ks and am a good 65 inning below pace to use up my innings. Lead in R and RBI, midpack HR, SB, in 9th pace in Avg. I tend to use the #1 waiver call to grab a future star. I got Correa and Springer that way. So this is opportunity fire to get someone of high quality, no real need.
I have been sitting on the #1 waiver call most of the season waiting for an appropriate drop or call-up. Archer was dropped and his waiver period ends tomorrow, is he worth the #1 waiver call or should I wait for a high-end call-up? This is an 11 team 8-player keeper league. Standard 5x5 Roto. My team is;
3B Valencia (3B, LF)
CF Springer (CF. RF)
Util Odor (2B)
Util Encarnacion (1B)
Bench WMyers (1B, CF), JBaez (2B, 3B, SS), MSaunders (LF, RF)
DL Brantley (LF, CF), Peralta (LF, RF)
SP Strasburg, Carrasco, Hill, Hammel, Happ, Lackey
RP Osuna, Rondon, Kintzler
DL Harvey, JRoss
If not Archer, who (i.e. the best call-up coming up this year) would you hold the waiver call for? Or would you take the shot Archer clears waivers? Thanks.
