Acuna or Moncada? Or both?! Hakuna Matata :)

Postby etl1692 » Fri Apr 06, 2018 3:46 pm

Do I ride both these guys out? They’re hurting me some by taking up roster spots. Luckily I’m winning this week so I’m not in panic mode yet. Patiently waiting for them to make an impact.

This is a H2H points, Keeper league.

Batting:
C: Yadier Molina
1B: Matt Olson (1B,OF)
2B: Dee Gordon
3B: Josh Donaldson
SS: Trea Turner
OF: Mookie Betts* ; Justin Upton ; AJ Pollock
Util: Whit Merriefield (2B,OF)
Util: Ryan Braun (OF)
BN: Adam Eaton
BN: Ronald Acuna N/A (OF)
BN: Yoan Moncada (2B,OF)

Pitching:
P: Chris Archer P: Jon Lester ; P: Carlos Martinez* ; P: Johnny Cueto ; P: Marcus Stroman ; SP Jameson Taillon ; SP Michael Fulmer ; SP Jon Gray ; RP: Sean Doolittle RP: Greg Holland

You knew Acuna was going to be a 3 week empty spot, nothing has changed so you sit tight. There are a ton of hitters struggling early on, playing in the cold and sometimes wet isn't conducive to hitting, so some nasty AVG and all around numbers are going to be expected for a while this year. Stick to your draft plan

In a re-draft or shallow keeper, there is no reason to be keeping Moncada around imo.

I guess it depends on settings, in leagues where you don't start many middles he isn't going to have as much value as deeper leagues. In leagues that I play in nobody that gets drafted/kept/ranked in the top 150 gets dropped the first month if they aren't badly injured. You have 2 2nd basemen that you can play they also qualify in the OF so you have choices. Moncada was #132 ADP in NFBC leagues 160 in yahoo, bats leadoff and is just figuring out the game at 22. It has been miserable in the midwest for hitters, I'd be patient with him but I can't see the players in the FA pool you have to replace him with so it is hard to say for sure. He has probably been dropped in some 10 team leagues, he was kept the last 2 years just based on potential in some of my leagues. With so many players it really depends on leagues size, if the K's count against you, how many keepers you have each year if certain players are valuable or droppable
