10 team 10 PLAYER keeper league H2H: please tell me who to keep for dysnasty league (in a vacuum, positions dont matter for the hitters):

Hitters: Joe Mauer, Eric Hosmer, Dustin Ackley, Jeter, Neil Walker, Brett Lawrie, Jason Heyward, Chris Young (OF), Carlos Quentin, Jayson Werth, Bryce Harper, Mike Trout, Brandon Belt, Dominic Brown, Moustakas….

Pitchers: King Felix, Jared Weaver, Matt Moore, Julio Teheran….


Keep: Harper, Trout, Hosmer, Ackley, Lawrie, Heyward, Felix, Weaver

Consider: Moore, Teheran, Belt, Mauer for last 2 spots

Cut: Jeter, Walker, Young, Quentin, Werth, Moustakas and Brown

You’re going to let some other team in your league get very good very quickly if you don’t protect most of those stud prospects/rookies on offense.

Jeter, Young, Quentin all have their best work behind them. Neil Walker is the new Todd Walker (upside=”meh”). Brown and Moustakas are having rough adjustments and are proving they may not be 10-teamer relevent for a while yet.

If you can still trade swing something for a younger SS or C with Moustakas or Brown and Moore or Teheran.
