    Default last keeper - auction league help - rep given

    For league in sig, which is a keep 4 auction league, I am debating between Ehlers and D. Hamilton for my last keeper.

    Total auction budget is $260, and I can keep Ehlers for $16 or Hamilton for $14.

    Arguments in favour of each are as follows:

    1. Ehlers

    I am pretty keen on Ehlers for this next year, and expect that he may hit 70 pts (he scored 64 last year, robber has him projected for 68). I suspect I may be able to pick up Ehlers (if I keep Hamilton) for around the same price $15-20, but maybe have to spend a couple of more dollars (not a huge keeper value). The risk is that another manager has the same intuition as I do, and he gets pushed up to north of $20, which may scuttle my draft plan to pick him up. In last years Draft, the following LWs were drafted for the following prices:

    Gaudreau - 31
    Patches - 25
    Hall - 23
    Huberdeau - 20
    Parise - 19
    Hoffman - 17
    Steen - 10

    2. Hamilton
    I could keep Hamilton for $14, which is pretty low. However, except for the top 2-3 scoring Dmen, our league criminally underrates d-men, given our starting positions, so I expect I could get him for around that same price.
    I really would like Hamilton, but would not be devestated if I did not get him in the draft, as I am likely to be able to draft someone similar for around $15. Last years' draft prices were as follows (excluding keepers):

    Subban - 34
    Letang - 33
    Byfugly - 30
    Barrie - 23
    Carlson - 20
    Weber - 20
    Seabrook - 19!!!!!
    Keith - 16
    Josi - 14
    Yangle - 14
    Doughty - 14
    Hedman - 13
    Shattenkirk - 12

    Keep Ehlers , more upside, think he will go way higher in your auction compared to Hamilton. Maybe try a 2-1 trade somewhere to get an upgrade somewhere else. You are going to lose one of these assets anyways.
