10 team H2H keeper league
standard 5X5 + OPS for batters, and holds for pitchers
no restrictions on keepers- just keep your best 6 for as long as you want

My Justin Upton for his Jay Bruce. Thoughts?
Grey, you have Bruce at 20 overall for roto rankings, but how would that rank change for a H2H league?

My other 5 keepers:

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.

Jay Bruce in roto, but his value dips below JUp in head to head. The guy just goes ICE cold for weeks, but the weeks he isn't are extra nice.

This could be the year of the BRUUUCCCEEEEE though. Overall, I think Bruce is one of the most undervalued OF.


12 team 6 keeper.

1B- Goldschmidt
OF- Bautista
OF- Bruce
OF- Rios
OF- Puig
UTIL- Longoria

Bench: Pujols,

SP- Harvey, Miller, Samardzija, Cole

For the sake of argument, here are their month by month HR totals last year:

Upton: 12, 2, 1, 1, 8, 3
Bruce: 1, 7, 10, 4, 4, 4

Both had about 2:1 K:BB ratios post-ASB, with Bruce posting a gross .239 AVG, albeit increasing walks.

Bruce also hit 43 doubles to J-Up's 27.

3-year-splits suggest Bruce is not very good at baseball in September with a .228 avg.

Worth noting that without Choo in CIN, his counting stats are bound to dip a bit, and stat-heavy sites like Fangraphs are mixed on him --- some see the increasing K% and argue with IBBs he received his discipline is actually getting worse, but those same guys have no idea what to think of J-Up.

In my eyes, it's a wash, but I always tend to tip my cap towards power hitters, so I'd go Bruce.
