Keeper advice por favor

I mean, I guess it's a good problem to have. 12-team H2H, keep 4 batters and 4 pitchers.

Struggling to figure out which 4 bats to keep.

Acuna
Benintendi
Bregman
Trout
Buxton
Mookie

If you don't squat on a young guy, you usually don't see him available again. Trout and Mookie are easy, we have 2 util spots and 3 OF spots so carrying 4 OFs isn't the end of the world. I pick 3rd in the draft, so good chance one of those guys ends up back on my team. Really don't want to expose Acuna to a couple of vultures in front of me though.

Not Bregman, Acuna

If you pick 3rd and don't want to expose Acuna...I'd throw back Bregman and Benintendi and re-draft which ever you like better.

Thanks gentlemen.

My real issue was how to value Buxton, sounds like you both think he's top-4 for sure.

I'm fine with Benintendi's safe floor. If somebody takes Acuna, life goes on. Benny will be in the lineup from opening day on, Acuna might get service timed.
