Keeper Rankings

By Adam Lewis

Are you in a Keeper league? Wondering how that affects who you should be drafting and where? Should you take Reggie Bush or Laurence Maroney? Don’t worry, 11 Cafe regulars are here to help. Eleven Cafe regulars ranked all categories, except kickers (like you need us for that), for keeper leagues. Wondering if Wayne should finally be picked ahead of Harrison? Which of the big three backs is best for the long haul? We dug deep into our rankings, and took everything into account. Prior to doing your Keeper draft, make sure you check these rankings out, they just may help you go from pretender to contender. These rankings were based on standard Yahoo scoring.
