Keeper draft pick values- trade away all my picks?

Postby blasters » Mon Feb 10, 2014 8:17 am

10 team H2H keeper league (snake draft)
6x6 categories- standard 5X5 + OPS for batters and holds for pitchers
no restrictions on keepers- just keep your best 6 for as long as you want

Since everybody must keep 6, their are 60 players off the board before the 1st overall pick. The top 3-5 picks are usually much better than the rest of the 1st round as the best teams end up dropping a few players outside their 6 that would have been keepers on other teams.

How should I value draft picks in this format vs. players? ie- what is a 2nd round pick (70-80th player) worth in relation to a player kept in someones 6?

I know a 70th ranked player isn't necessarily a stud, but how much does it hurt you to miss an entire round in a snake draft? I would guess the value of each round's pick in comparison to others around it decreases as you get deeper in the draft, right?

What if I trade Bumgarner and 2 2nd rounders for a top 10 bat? Is that crazy? Crazy like Miley Cryrus, or crazy like a fox?

I have already traded away my 1st and 3rd round picks and traded for an extra 2nd rounder. I would be left with no picks for the first 3 rounds of our draft, but my 6 keepers would be pretty stacked for batting.

My keepers right now:
Cano
Longoria
Goldschmidt
Giancarlo
Braun
Bumgarner

Depends what bat you're getting for Bumgarner...

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.

How about these guys?

Trout
Mccutcheon
Jones
Fielder
Cargo
Harper
Votto

Thanks for the help, just trying to figure out how to value these picks and I think this league may overvalue them based on where we start drafting.

You're getting a top pick for Bumgarner? If so, by all means...

So you think the value of the 2 2nd round picks I would include in the trade is negligible?

I know I would trade Bumgarner for Adam Jones, but is it still a good deal for me if i add both 2nd round picks?

Bumgarner and two picks for any of those guys is good...
