So i'm running a league I won last year (thanks for the past help) and i'm trying a keeper thing this year. Its a 12 team, 5x5 H2H weekly league. You can keep any number of players at draft + 5, or 5 if they were FA pickups. So, given the following list and prices, who would you keep (260 budget total)?

Miguel Cabrera - 63
Paul Goldschmitt - 26
Jean Segura - 6
Alcides Escobar - 5
Wil Myers - 5
Matt Holliday - 32
Jason Heyward - 37
Domonic Brown - 5
Brandon Phillips - 26
Matt Adams - 5
Evan Gattis - 5
Madison Bumgarner - 5
Matt Moore - 21
Glen Perkins - 8
Rafael Soriano - 14
Jonathan Papelbon - 20
Ernesto Frieri - 6
Justin Masterson - 5
Chris Archer - 5
Jim Henderson - 5
Ubaldo Jiminez - 5
Travis Wood - 5
Chad Gaudin - 5
Yordano Ventura - 5

Leaning Goldschmitt, Myers, Bumgarner, Archer for sure, but the others are a lot of maybes. (PS, thanks for the constant "BUY GOLD" articles last year, helped me win this league and another one!) I like Heyward and Miggy, but not at those prices (and pretty sure I can do OK on 3b and OF at later points if needed, potentially grabbing Heyward for cheaper than this if/when I REALLY want him)

For sure I'd keep:
Goldschmidt (26)
Segura (6)
Myers (5)
Bumgarner (5)
Total $42.

Miggy is pricy at $63, but at the same time, any idea what he would go for in the draft this year? If it's around that I'd find it hard to throw him back.

Since there doesn't seem to be any restriction for how many you can keep I'd have to seriously consider keeping these guys as well:
M.Adams (5)
D.Brown (5)
Perkins (8)
Frieri (5)
Masterson (5)
Archer (5)
Total $33.

Even if you kept all those guys it would leave you with $122 and you'd have yourself 1B / 3B / SS / CI / 2xOF / 3xSP / 2xRP which would include 3 elite hitters (2 power and 1 speed), an elite starter and a $12 salad for the bargain price of $8! I'm not sure how many roster spots there are, but even with CI/MI/UT, 5 OF and 9 P you're looking at $122 left over for 11 players plus bench. And those spots include cheaper positions like C/2B/MI/RP.

Just my 2 cents...
