Starting to think about keepers

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

Starting to think about keepers

Postby Chilly » Tue Sep 08, 2020 8:05 pm

I'm in a 12 team 5x5 roto keeper league. We keep 15 players each year with salaries totaling $320. There is typically a $5 raise given to players each year, but on hold this off-season, so salaries shown get no raises.

I've worked to acquire some assets (i'm at the bottom of the league this year - Recently traded a $17 Abreu for $25 Olson, going for youth. Also traded $25 Hader for $10 Lux), and have players listed below by position.

1B - Olson $25, Mancini $6

2B - Albies $17, Lux $10

3B - Arenado $39, Kieboom $10, Torkelson $5

SS - Lindor $33, Rosario $16

OF - JD Martinez $40, Laureano $19, Winker $10, Carlson $10, Mercado $10, Mountcastel $4, T. Hernandez $2

SP - Verlander $41, Berrios $20, E-Rod $16, Fried $15, Urquidy $14, Skubal $10, Dunning $10, Pearson $6, Turnbull $3

RP - Bradley $16, Gallegos $15, Ginkel $10, Karinchak $8

Who are your must keep players and who are guys you would consider trading? If you're up for picking 15 players to keep at this point, would love to hear that as well.

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.
Thanks!

Surprised by Rosario. I loved him coming into the season, but he seems to have lost his starting role. Do you see a big bounce back?

Hoping Mancini comes back strong next year, think he's a potential steal for $6.

Thanks for the help.

Sorry, I see it's SS so it should've been obvious, but I was thinking of Eddie Rosario -- No way do I keep Amed -- I Mancini can come back, no idea if he will, there's a lot of time between now and next year -- you don't exactly have a ton of options, I'd look at Lux, I guess, over Amed
