  1. Who do I keep? WHIR

    seconded ^^
  2. Room to stash Acuna? Shallow League. WHIR 100%

    Without knowing what your league scoring looks like I'd drop an RP for him. But Maeda could be swapped for a FA.
  3. Who to Keep? J.D. or Thor?

    Keep JD. Draft Thor if you must/can.
  4. Which SP would you go with? **WHIR**

    Corbin Newcomb Matz
  5. Correa or Trea ?

    Trea > Correa
  6. So, the plan is to go into the draft with Nola (round 15), Albies (round 19) and Acuna (round 20) as my keepers in my 10-team 6x6 Standard Roto league. There 25 rounds in total. I'd like to pair Nola with a top 5 SP1 by drafting one in the first 3 rounds (Kershaw, MadMax, Thor, Kluber, MadBum, K, Max and Thor went in the first 2 rounds last year) or wait a round or two for someone like Verlander (I drafted him in the 5th last year - he'll prob be gone by early 4th), Greinke, or Darvish (drafted him in the 4th last year). I reached the innings limit too early since I tried to make up for early pitching struggles (see Verlander and Darvish) while other SP picks didn't pan out. So in that case, should I target a SP1 early in the 2nd or 3rd round? Or, should I wait until the 4th round like last year? I have a feeling more bats will be targeted early since guys like Berrios, Carrasco, Severino, Ray and even Greinke are likely to be kept. How I draft in first 4-5 rounds will depend on where I pick in the draft order, which hasn't been set yet. I'll update this thread once it is. League settings are below.

  7. Didn't see a thread on him. Anything to see here this season?

    One month wonder. Unless he falls to me late in the draft I'm passing. Drafted him in the 24th (out of 25) in my limited keeper last year and don't see much of a change this year due to risk and limited PT. Getting him anywhere before round 20 would be a reach.
  9. Keep Yelich or not?

    bump. keepers lock in two days.
  10. Keep Yelich or not?

    As of now, I intend on keeping Nola (round 15), Albies (round 19), and Acuna (round 20). Someone make the case for keeping Yelich in the 3rd round in my 10-team Roto Keep 3. And if so who do I keep him over? I originally drafted him in the 6th last year. There's no limit on how long we keep players so I'd potentially be forfeiting the 3rd each year for Yelich. Seems too rich for me.

  12. Cespedes or Albies?

    Cespedes for Albies is the move.

    Bombs from both sides of the plate today!
  15. Final Keeper Sanity Check

    Not really. Since we can't keep anyone originally drafted in the first 3 rounds (25 total) most early round ADPs are ruled out. I drafted Yelich in the 6th last year so I'd need to keep him in the 3rd if I choose to. He put together a nice season overall but hasn't earned the 3rd round status yet IMO, especially in my 10-team format. I have not seen anyone take him before the 5-6th in mock drafts so far. Besides, I could probably still get him cheaper in the draft. I could see Acuna eclipsing if not matching those numbers easily. Many teams in my league have been hoarding top prospects/callups (ala Bellinger, Devers, Haap..) and high performing FAs (ie Severino). Later-round keepers take priority. While I'm considering a "rebuild" with the 3 choices I do not have to keep all 3 or anyone at all.
