    This is an odd league in which there are 10 owners drafting from 16 MLB teams plus certain players not on those teams. It's basically the equivalent of a 17-team mixed league. We do not have contracts; to keep someone, you pay them 150% of the previous year's salary or $4, whichever is more expensive. We are 5x5 with OBP instead of AVG and SB minus CS instead of SB. We have a 21-man active roster and a 9-man bench; on the bench, there is no distinction between major and minor leaguers.

    We keep 7. I am definitely keeping Bellinger $8 and Rendon $24. Below are the possibilities for the other 5. Who from this list do you like?

    C Garver $4
    1B/3B Y. Gurriel $4
    2B/SS L. Urias $4*************See Aquino
    SS C. Seager $18*************at $27. he is probably overpriced, especially in a shallow league
    OF Aquino $4***************$6. is certainly worth keeping
    OF Calhoun $4**************same as Aquino
    OF Haniger $11
    OF Pham $8***************$12. is a great price***keep
    OF Robles $8**************same as Pham
    OF Te. Hernandez $4
    P Desclafani $4
    P T. Rogers $4
    P Stripling $5
    P J. Urias $4*********possibly a keeper, depending on use in ST--$6. is very good in most formats, maybe not yours?
    Bearin' up!

    Pretty far, IMO. Hes missing a chunk of the front end of the season on top of recovery challenges.

    I can see the Yuli versus Aquino argument, but I misread Willie Calhoun. I was mistaken and would take him over either Yuli or Aquino

    On top of "wasn't that great last year either"

    Hey Scott,

    The prices I listed are their keeper prices this year. Aquino, Urias, etc. would be $6 if I kept them in 2021. Not something I need to consider until this time next year, as there are no long-term contracts.

    Thanks for all the feedback so far.

    Some of you have recommended Aquino but I am concerned with playing time issues. The Reds brought in Castellanos and Akiyama, and the situation will get even more crowded when Senzel returns. There has even been talk that Aquino might start the year in the minors. I worry about what opportunity cost I might miss if I keep Aquino and the Reds bury him.

    Then keep Yuli, but realize he’s more likely to hit 20 than 30 HR

    Even better deal! I don't have a point of reference on prices in your league, so I don't know if Seager will go cheaper than $18., but he sure would look good in most any lineup.

    Look good how? He's not that great of a fantasy asset at this point. He was worth around $10 in this type format last year.

    2C or 1C? If 1C, Garver is definitely out. Given the format, I would go for upside, which, given the SB-CS, is a little light on your choices (your two obvious ones are obvious, lol, they are the great ones). I'd go Pham definitely, and Urias and Robles because of upside, but the others don't seem super special and don't stand out from each other. Rogers maybe, since he has the job on a good team. (Of course, if you aren't planning on contending, he's less of a choice since the shelf life of a closer like him is very short.).
