no, espn's ranking does not factor in 2 catcher or obp. it's just a standard ranking. but, maybe one factor that pushes stanton up a bit in espn, is their standard league starts 5 outfielders vs yahoo only starting 3.
anyways, i think its close. and i haven't been playing fantasy baseball long enough to know how good guys like kingman, deer, etc are. but, lets not get carried away. stanton, if healthy, is a 40 hr threat, and should be ranked right up there with encarnacion. the increase in his keeper rank is most likely due to his young age.
unless its a dynasty or you keep a big number, that makes no sense. if you're in 6th place or less near the end of the year, why not just tank and bench your players the rest of the year to get a better pick next year. which in turn would have a very negative effect on the championship race.
quit telling people to post their entire roster. it's pointless. none of the other guys on my roster are worth keeping over the 6 guys i posted.
and i'm interested to hear which 2 guys you think are NOT keepers. there's not too much info out there for 2014/keeper rankings. espn has a keeper ranking which lists:
but, i'd rather play more for 2014, and use a 2014 ranking rather than a keeper ranking.
in one of my leagues, we go in order of finish. 1st gets 1st pick, 2nd gets 2nd, etc. that way, it gives you a reason to keep playing at the end of the year if you want a higher draft pick.
which 4 to keep in a 10 team standard roto (can keep forever with no penalties, just goes in place of your 1st 4 draft picks):
right now, i'm leaning trout, votto, stanton, and darvish. any help would be appreciated. gotta lock in the final keepers by 9/30.
