I appreciate the advice every year!

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

I appreciate the advice every year!

Lately, I've had the problem of having more keepers than keeper spots. In this league, we keep our keepers forever for free, and it's a 7x7 league (+TB and +CYC for batters, -WHIP and +NH and +QS and +GDP for pitchers, and the lack of WHIP was one of the reasons I started keeping Kershaw even when his WHIP was terrible). We also get two minor league spots to fill during or after the draft. Five keepers.

Adam Jones
Evan Longoria
Matt Kemp
Albert Pujols
Clayton Kershaw
Shin-Soo Choo
Ian Kinsler
Hanley Ramirez
Ryan Zimmerman

Offense was a problem last year. Pitching was not. Kershaw is the only keeper candidate among the pitchers, but the staff still featured Matt Harvey, Jordan Zimmerman, Hyun-jin Ryu, Tony Cingrani, Johnny Cueto, and five closers.

Jones and Longoria are locks, of course. Is this finally the year I dump Pujols? (Then who replaces him? What about next year?) I'm pretty sure Kinsler is out, since I have a long-term Anthony Rendon plan at second base, and I'm betting I can draft him much later.

Thanks so much. This website is awesome, and it has helped me remain competitive in a fairly competitive league, ever since I took over a lousy 15th-place team whose best players were Jimmy Rollins and Scott Kazmir.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
