A little help please on keeper choices

Postby F-Bomb » Wed Aug 28, 2002 2:36 pm

I'm in a league that allows you to keep up to two players from last season. My choices are:

Ricky Williams
Edge James
Anthony Thomas
Duece McAllister

My thought is to keep Thomas and McAllister. Since the Edge is not playing his final preseason game I have no idea how his knee is and I've watched Ricky Williams enough to know that he's special but he can be stopped and doesn't have breakaway speed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Our draft is this weekend.

Thomas and McAllister are good choices, both are young and here to stay at the top, you might want to consider James as a long-term keeper though and have him on your roster even in downtimes like now.

If you're not playing for money but only for fun and you don't like Williams, just drop him, this game is supposed to be fun and rooting for guys you dislike isn't any fun :-t

long term wise i suggest keeping A-train and deuce, but the only problem is deuce isnt proven yet versus ricky. ricky's the safer pick of the two for this years stats but i still would choose deuce over him in a keeper league. i think he'll become a better all around back with his speed and recieving abilities

This has to be one of the toughest questions on the board today... Every time I look at it, I come up with a new "right" combination, only to have second (and third, and fourth...) thoughts.

Right now, I'm leaning toward Thomas and James in playoff leagues, and Thomas and Williams in leagues without playoffs, although obviously Thomas and McAllister would form an excellent core as well. It's unbelievably close. Yikes! :-o

I think the crux of the whole matter is James. Once you decide whether to take a gamble on him or not, the rest of the decision becomes a bit easier. It's still awfully tough, though...

At any rate, it's a nice problem to have. :-D

Thanks for the input so far. I appreciate all of your insight. Yes it's a nice problem to have but I'm pulling out what little hair I have left! I drafted James and Williams their rookie season and won our Super Bowl that year. I kept them the next season and won a division title. I kept them agian last year and lost our Super Bowl without James. It makes it tough not to keep both of them again. However, not being able to see James perform in preseason really has me concerned. Williams is usually ranked high in all the list I've come across but I'm thinking the Saints may be on to something with Duece. If they use him like Marshall Faulk, he could have a huge season. I'm pretty sure A-Train will be the Bears offense and he seems to get stronger as the game goes on, which I like.

Any other comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.
