Early Keeper Decisions

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Early Keeper Decisions

Postby Lucc » Sat Dec 21, 2013 8:31 am

I took over a 100 player dynasty league last season, so I'm trying to get a little jump on my roster this year.

Need to narrow down my 11 major keepers, and evaluate left over trade commodities.

Typically, I keep 8 Bats and 3 arms, but it looks like I'm heavy on Arms this year.

Keeper Bats: Votto, Adams, McCutchen, Jennings, Jones....

Other Options: Moustakas, Lawrie, Kendrick, Soriano? Frazier? (any with trade value?)

Keeper Arms: Price, Bumgarner, Minor, Zimmerman, Moore, Gray (I really like Gray)

Other options: Ryu, Uehara, Reed

There's no way I want to go into the draft at round 12 with 6 arms. Which starters listed above are best to move?

I have feelers out for 2 guys in particular. First, Jacoby Ellsbury - Owner looking for a 1 -1 starter. Is price worth it?

Second is Matt Carpenter. Again owner looking for an 1-1, my thinking was Jordan Zimmermann?

All input appreciated..

I'd want more for Zimmermann, that's fair for Price... I'd try to move Moore too if you can... None of your other options at hitting have trade value to me, maybe they will to someone else though...

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Thanks Grey appreciate the feedback.. I know you're right on Moore. I could probably get the same value in return for him as Zimmermann. Been holding him for 4 years but its the right call.

Out of these guys, simply for next year, which would be best. I could probably get these guys for Moore, plus adding a minor guy like paxton if need be.

Matt Carpenter
Nolan Arenado
or
Domonic brown.

Much appreciated happy holidays!
