    Rendon is by far the worst of your keepers. Not sure why you’d pick him over Eloy. He’s not a 30 HR bat with no juiced ball.

    Rendon is 30 and has batted over .300 from 2017-19, 2020 was .286...

    He finished top 11 in MVP voting the last 4 years.  

    He is currently going 7th among 3B at about pick 42.  After Rendon the drop off is 20 spots to Cavan BIggio.

    Eloy is ranked about 10 spots higher but I already have 2 of the best young OF in the game and the option to redraft Eloy at #2 overall pick.  Only 14 OF kept in whole league so tons of players to take (guaranteed either Eloy or Robert, among others.)

    That's why I kept Rendon.

  2. 60 kept total in a 10 team league.  Bichette for #5 overall (available players at bottom) - lets me keep Eloy...

     

    Current team:

    Acuna, Soto, Bichette, Rendon, deGrom, Bauer

    picks 2, 9, 12

    If traded Bichette team:

    Acuna, Soto, Eloy, Rendon, deGrom, Bauer

    picks 2, 5, 9, 12

    Top available players after 60 keepers:

    Hitters:  Robert, Tucker, Seager, Marte, Tim Anderson, Arozarena, Voit, Bggio, B Lowe, Cruz, T Hernandez, Conforto, Suarez, K Marte, Gurriel Jr, Matt Olson, Blackmon, Altuve, Castellanos, Meadows, Bohm

    Pitchers:  Giloito, Gallen, Woodruff, Burnes, Maeda, Gray, Lynn, Plesac, L Hendricks, Lamet, E Diaz 

    *League is keep 6, any 6, no round costs....keep forever...

    I know every one of the outfielders you mentioned is super young, but this looks like trading a known commodity for an unknown one.   Eloy could go 1 and then you end up with Robert.    You know what you’re going to get with acuna, and for this trade to work in your benefit, you’d need for Robert to hit close to his ceiling.   I don’t THINK he will, but Robert could  very  well end up getting some type of career which could be a mix of  Byron buxton And Desmond Jennings.    You’d also likely be getting Freeman’s post prime years, and although is still an mvp candidate, the drop off for votto, miggy, Pujols, rizzo, goldy etc...was fast, steep and sudden.  There’s a lot of “ifs” in my answer, I admit, but Acuna is a sure fire fantasy center piece for the foreseeable future.  Don’t give him up, a lot has to go right for you to slightly improve.

    Those are some good points to consider.  I guess I think of Acuna as a top 5 guy for the next 10 years, and I think of Freeman as a top 2 or 3 1b for the next 3-4 years, which is a long time for a fantasy league.  That swap would not work but being able to get 2 additional 1st round picks, 5 of the top 12 picks in a 10 team league, would set me up huge for this year and I am not short of keeper caliber players, and will be looking for youth flyers who may work out and help me in the future.  Another reason I'm thinking about it is that the 1B pool is way more shallow than the OF player pool.  Kind of like getting a star TE in fantasy football, since it drops off big after the top handful.

    What 1B are going to be available in your draft? It seems like you already have a bunch of early picks so the 6+10 picks don't excite me that much. Is there any possible way Freeman owner would consider dealing him for a SP? If I could get Freeman for Bauer somehowI would do it in a heartbeat. Giving up Acuna in a dynasty league is just so tough...even for a solid offer. I love the idea of adding Robert or Eloy but from what I'm seeing with all your picks, you should be able to grab one of them anyway.

    I know it's a huge move to trade Acuna but I would be guaranteed either Eloy or Robert at pick 2 to replace him, pairing that player w/ Soto in the OF.  And it helps fill my infield and give me a ton of high picks.  In reality, so much will change in 5 years when Freeman is 36 and who even knows if this league will be around at that point...

    Kept players = Freeman, Bellinger, LeMahieu, Abreu, Vlad, Alonso, Matt Olsen, Goldy...so top available should be Voit, Muncy, Rizzo, Bohm....I see Voit is adp 61 of NFC then after it's 80-90s ADP players...

    Saw your new post; I'm also repping Acuna/Soto/Robert/Bichette/deGrom in a keeper; feels good lol.

    Super stacked.  My leaguemates think it's not fair when all my keepers are top 25 players, but I drafted Acuna and Soto 7th and 14th for the 2019 season, traded for degrom, FA pickup BIchette, targeting Robert and a late flyer on Franco possibly

    I can't imagine who else would be there at #2 that would be more valuable than Robert, if he's allowed to fall to pick #2.

    True.  Some stacked teams like mine drop a couple real nice players.  Eloy is ranked around 30 as well as Robert and one of them will be available to me at #2.  A handful of the guys ranked in the 30s-40s will be there.  Some teams are bad and are keeping players in the 70s or 80s and some are basically all keepers top 30 players.  So I guess I'm probably taking Robert there.

  8. 10 team, 6 keepers.

    My current keepers:

    Acuna, Soto, Bichette, Rendon, deGrom, Bauer

    My current draft picks:  2, 9, 12, 32, 52, 57, 69, 72, 92, 106, 109, 112, 129, 132, 152, 157, 169, 177

     

    Do I offer Acuna, picks 32 & 52 for Freddie Freeman, picks 6 & 10?

    GIves me 5 top 12 picks and I could replace Acuna with either Eloy or Robert with my 2nd overall selection, and fill out my team nicely, giving me probably the best 1B in baseball for the next handful of years.  I know it's hard to trade Acuna but OF is easier to fill up, and it's tempting.

    Thoughts?

  9. 10 team league, 6 keepers, 2019 rosters, so nobody has Robert as a keeper.  Is it worth grabbing him if I can with the #2 pick?  I was all for it last year before we were cancelled, but his 2nd half of the year was horrible and I am not convinced I should snag him if he's there when I pick.

    Toss back you're number 4 & 5 players put Rendon & Eloy in those spots. Next drop the snake & scoop up another offensive player. Then keep that power in the very last spot. 

    Are you advocating an all offense strategy since it's 6 offensive cats to 5 pitching?  Because deGrom is a top 10 pick and Bauer a top 20 based on ADP.  But I could load offense and then go S, ERA, WHIP, but that seems risky

  11. I have rostered him the last 2 seasons and he hasn't ever been overrated, at least back then.  He isn't overpowering or a strikeout king, rather a smaller pitcher who wears glasses and I felt those optics underrated him.  However an ADP of 40 is higher than I expected.  I would have thought 50-70, however he is very steady SP2 in my opinion who has good ERA & WHIP but won't get a ton of K or W.  I feel he is very consistent and hope he can continue doing well as he is only 25.

  12. Existing keeper league (snake draft) is now switching to an auction for this season.  

    We had a lot of draft pick trades during the 2019 season and some teams have much better picks than others, so we can't just give every team the same auction budget.

    We have the snake draft pick order but need help converting those picks into auction $.  

    Does anyone have a chart or know of any resource to figure out the correct budgets for our teams?  

     

  13. My initial thoughts without really pondering them are

    1.  Take WRs who are connected to elite QBs

    2.  Draft Henry or Kamara 

    3.  Try to get a few elite players who you will never question starting (I had way too many similar players this year and it was always hard to know who to start; this was mostly due to my top 2 picks injured/somewhat busting).

  14. Yahoo commish here, 1st year, have a guy in the league who is dropping all his bench b/c he DGAF, but some good players, and we are doing keeper so we want to lock this guy and fix his team for whoever takes over next yr.  Main question, in Yahoo are you allowed to do moves after the finals since there's a week 17?  Or does it lock after all the games in champ week?  Any advice welcome for this situation.
