Keeper question

12 team, standard 9 cat Roto league. I have to keep 2 from: Melo, Dirk, Kyrie, Conley.

I'm leaning towards Melo and Kyrie, however I'm sure Kyrie's value will take a hit with LeBron and Love on board. Wondering if I should consider offering Kyrie (22 y/o) for someone like Lowry (28 y/o)? Ideally I'd like to swap for Wall but don't think his owner will pull the trigger. Wall owner is keeping Wall and Lowry. Who should I target for Kyrie? Maybe Lillard (24 y/o)? Or do I let the dice roll with Kyrie?

    I'd probably roll the dice with Kyrie. The potential for counting stats drop of is certainly there with LeBron and Love in town, but the potential bump in efficiency is really quite large. Kyrie will be facing far less defensive attention this year than last, will be the recipient of more and better passes when he's open behind the arc, and also now has far better finishers to pass to when he does have the rock. So there's lots of room for improvement. I wouldn't trade him Lowry due to age and upside. I would have to think hard about moving him for Wall, but I bet the other manager rejects that trade anyway.

    Go ahead and sit tight with Melo and Irving.

    Melo and Irving in a landslide, you're overthinking this.

    not huge on kyrie this year but he's the best choice among your keepers.

    I would also stick with Kyrie and Melo. But you can certainly explore trade options to see what you might get for Kyrie.
