Couple months away now, so thumbing through my keeper list for this year.  Had a fire sale this past year after b2b Titles, so got a bunch of decent ones.. but can only keep 6.

The league is 11 team NL Only 4x4 (no Runs or Ks)

What are the board's thoughts?? If I can keep for '15 season, the price is in ().

I'll rank them in order of most likely to keep and will keeping the top 4 for sure...
  1. $4 Pedro Alvarez
  2. $4 Matt Carpenter ($8 next year)
  3. $10 Mike Minor
  4. $2 Lance Lynn
  5. $1 Dillon Gee ($2 next year)
  6. $10 Matt Adams
  7. $10 Khris Davis
  8. $4 Brandon Beachy ($8 next year)
  9. $1 Yasmani Grandal ($2 next year)
  10. $5 Anthony Rendon
  11. $7 Dee Gordon
  12. $1 Jaime Garcia ($2 next year)

I probably take your top 6. I am not a Gee fan but for the price you have to. I like Adams this year for 30+ hr's.

Yea, I lean between Gee and Davis, though can probably get Davis back right around the $10 mark as long as he's not super hyped in spring training.

Agree on Adams- if he can get 450+ ABs, he's gonna hit a ton of bombs at a pretty decent avg

I keep Gee over Davis. You won't get Gee for $1 but can get Davis for $10 most likely.

I agree on the first 6, but you also have to look at what players are being kept by other teams, and what positions will be scarce in the auction. Inflation can get really high in an NL only league if the position is thin on draft day.
9,11,12 don't even consider.

Inflation is insanely high.  Who are some that you'd look at for scarcity outside the first 6?

If 2B is thin on draft day then I would consider Rendon. If all the top tier 2B are being kept the inflation on a guy like Rendon could get him up to $12+ in inflated value

Why does everyone like Rendon?  Not that I don't, but what will be give me?  Would love some insight into him.

Also adjusted my list a bit and am utterly close to keeping $10 Khris Davis over $1 Dillon Gee (hitters are inflated way more than SPs)

Welp, ended up flipping Beachy, Gee and Rendon for a $2 Wilson Ramos.

So keeper list looks pretty set with the following 6.  The only change might be $10 Khris Davis over Adams, but I'll see how spring training plays out and what the Cardinals do with Taveras.  Those 4 hitters already have me at 50% of my HR targets for this year...

  • $4 Pedro Alvarez
  • $4 Matt Carpenter ($8 next year)
  • $10 Mike Minor
  • $2 Lance Lynn
  • $2 Wilson Ramos ($4 next year)
  • $10 Matt Adams

Yea, pretty pleased I was able to work that out.  Can only keep 6, so that made it harder, but glad the guy helped me out.
