As free agency nears (end of World Series plus 15 days and counting), I am beginning to look at off-season trades in preparation of the 2007 fantasy baseball season.
This arises because the team with the good player can fill several keeper slots in one swoop and/or the team offering multiple players does not have a single player to swap of equal value.
At what point are multiple keepers better than one good one? With only 14 active roster spots for hitters, is a team better off with the one good player and 13 slots to fill at a competitive draft where 11 other teams are vying for the limited number of established draftees or is a team better off with the multiple keepers and focusing on acquiring one of the better draftees and having the certainty of the other keepers?
I tend towards the latter, but am curious where that distinction can be drawn?

One stud player and many slots to fill
Several lesser players but fewer slots to fill
An AL- or NL-only format changes my answer
