trout, kemp, kershaw and cespedes. leaves you some early picks to fill in the infield positions. kershaw in the 7th is so much better than hamels in teh 3rd.

assuming you're not forfeiting any picks based on the round your keepers were drafted in:

Trout
Kemp
Kershaw
Hamels

Normally, I'd not suggest (ever) keeping two arms, but these guys are 100% #1 aces.     As much as I like your other offensive options in Cespedes and Craig, I have to give the nod to Clayton and Cole here.

Yes, we have to forfeit the pick of whatever keeper we choose. So when the draft starts, I would get skipped the first RD for keeping Kemp. So on and so forth.

Nevermind, I totally read your question wrong. Ha!

1)Trout, for obvious reasons.

2)Kemp, because he'll probably be the best talent available in the first round. How does your draft order work? Is it predetermined? If you have a pick before anyone else, then I would suggest not keeping kemp and just draft him.

3)Kershaw. In a 10 team H2H keeper league, someone will probably jump on him in the 2nd round. Losing your 7th pick for him is a huge advantage.

4)Yoenis Cespedes. I wasn't big on Yoenis last year, but him at 17th this year is intriguing.

I would say go with Trout, Kershaw, Cespedes, and Craig just looking at value. You still get a 1st this way to get Kemp back or someone like that I would think.

Trout & Kershaw for sure.  Their value with the round draft pick you are losing is excellent.  And then I'd probably do Cespedes & either Desmond (SS is so thin) or Craig.  Yeah, you'd give up Kemp, but I'm sure there will be some very nice picks in the 1st round even if someone else grabs him.

Predetermined by how we finished the season. Worst team picks first, etc. I pick 6th in this draft. If I let Matt Kemp go, I won't get him back and most guys keep their first rd picks so there isn't a lot of talent left.

I agree the majority here: Kemp, Trout, Kershaw and Cespedes.  Hamels is a maybe or alternate if something happens to one of these guys between now and keeper turn in deadline.

Trout, Kershaw, cespedes are definites. I could see going any of the others except Hamels and Tex. I personally would probably go with Kipnis, but can't fault going with Kemp.
