12 team, 8-cat Roto - $$

I get to keep 5 players. Which 5 do you take?

Wade - Keep
Deron - Keep
Kawhi - Keep

Got to pick 2 of:
Andrew Bynum
Eric Bledsoe

Paul Pierce
Andrew Bogut
Amir Johnson

Is that your order?

I'm in a similar dilemma except I have Valanciunas and Kanter grouped with Tobias Harris and Bradley Beal and I'm dying deciding. Anyway Bogut and Amir are not keepers, and Bledsoe while good, is not efficient like those two. Bynum has to many health concerns...You have a chance to build around two of the best young centers in the league. The percentages from that spot can carry your team. I would definitely go with Val and Kanter and not look back.

Ur top 3 look good to me. Ur last 2 is tuff. Bledsoe, and Valunciuncas would be my 2 keeps. Kanter and Pierce are not bad options though. Another idea is to throw Wade back and keep Kanter also. I prefer Pg and C for shallow keep leagues.

I respectfully disagree with most of this. Pierce shouldn't be considered at all and keeping JV over Kanter is lunacy IMO. If you send Kanter back into the draft pool, you'll rue that day.

I would keep Kawhi, D. Will, Kanter, Bledsoe, and either Wade or JV.

I would keep Kanter and Bynum. Bynum's health is obviously a big risk, and I personally don't like the guy, but his fantasy potential is too high to let go at this point IMO. If you don't want to take the risk with Bynum, I would go with Bledsoe.

Thanks for the input guys.

We don't have to lock our keepers in just yet. Normally it's a week before season kicks off, so hopefully a preseason game or two can clear up the decision.

At moment, leaning towards Kanter and Val.

If Bynum plays in the preseason, he'd probably jump to the top of the list, but him being healthy is a massive 'if'.

I'm most intrigued about how Bledsoe will go in starter's minutes.

Wade's my fav player, so don't really want to throw him back. But he is entering his final year of his keeper eligibility (5 years) before he has to get put back into the FA pool. So I may consider ditching him for long term in Bledsoe.

I'm sure I'll bump this thread a little closer to when I have to make a decision.

i'm huge on jval, so he's 100% a keeper imo. his scoring efficiency is amazing, and he can reb/block too.

i like kanter as well since his per-36 are mad nice. him and jval would dominate the big men stats while shooting high %s to backup your other players.

personally, i think wade is on the decline and will be held out more often to stay fresh for the playoffs. also i love kawhi (enough to redraft him top-36) but in no-turnover leagues he's like 2 rounds less valuable. i would think about moving either of those guys if you can bring in a fantasy superstar, maybe paul george?
