JAH is right, this year it's all Hanley. Hard to know what you'll get out of Russell long term. K's are a big problem right now, though it's been better last 40ABs (down to 25%). Maybe you get Arenado first year type production out of him for a year or so then??? I like him, but it's high risk/high reward. If I was in contention I'd take hanley.

I think his value rest of season is probably more like 10-12 SS RK, he'll have some really good games and dry spells, even Trout struggled his first 150 of so ABs.

I think so, he's given up a lot of HRs, probably he should have taken a little more time with the hamstring and pitched some more rehab and/or bad luck. either way his velocity isn't way down that I've seen still 91, he makes for a good 4 or 5 in standard leagues rest of season.

Do that, then worry about trying to trade kipnis or altuve later, you should get more for altuve...

Throw a couple bucks his way, maybe $5? Drop Forsythe. With Moreland off DL and Hamilton coming soon, not sure where Blanks will play either, so you could drop him also.

You need more. Would you be happy if you traded Price for say Bogaerts or Betts? Pederson or Bryant maybe yes...so far. Prospects are hit and miss. without knowing size of league, I'd want two uppier tier prospects and someone usable already at big league level.

I would be relatively high. BABIP is not outrageous and could go up, he looks like a legit .290 hitter. Power is not going to be that high, maybe 10HR ROS but good BB% means lots of Runs, I'd trade Reyes for him right now.
Manager had a stroke, this team is in last. It's a rebuilding job, but don't feel bad I'm in 19th as Stroman, Darvish and Cobb have all gone down for me. 7x7 league with HLD, OPS, QS, XBH. 7-9 keepers, last team picks first every round. Very competitive league, need a manager who will fill out lineup this year and work to improve going forward. tantra1232003 at yaho

No, Donaldson is a top 3 3b, in a 20 team dynasty league I'd want one quality player back like a Calhoun or someone young, and two top prospects who are more MLB ready, like A. Russell.

Morales, though a lot of Parades production came from the BOS series and their pitching sucks. I would expect him to continue to hit

In defense of strong, I thought Rollins was a good late round value around pick 180-200 if you could get him. It is still early, one thing to be concerned about is the K% - it's now at 21%.

Short term I don't know who will do better. Adeiny though is a .280BA with some R upside but if he hits 1 more HR all year that might be in. SB maybe another 7 rest of season. Cozart some pop, .240BA. Rollins is the safest bet but that K% above 21% is concerning. none of these are great long term options.
3rd year league, 7-9 keepers, standard draft each year. competitive league so need to know your stuff. e-mail tantra1232003 at yaho if interested and I can e-mail teams.
