Hey there - standard scoring league, with no PPR. Equal points for receiving/rushing/passing TD's. No flex, we start 3 WR's. Looking for some advice on an overall keeper strategy. We keep 3, so I've been batting a few things back and forth. Here is the full list of players that are up for consideration:
Lynch Slaton Grant
Boldin Colston Marshall
Random Potential upside left on my bench:
Sproles Ray Rice Torain M. Bush F. Jackson
As of this Sunday, five keepers must be selected and then in the summer we narrow the list down to three. At this point I really believe my team is only strong at WR so I've been considering a keep all my WR's and draft RB's early strat. I have the fifth overall pick next year in a ten man league, so fifth and sixteenth overall picks. That would most likely leave me drafting someone decent like Lynch or Slaton as my number one back (ugh) and trying to grab a rookie or some other sleeper early on. I just don't see the upside to any other keeper strategy at this point.
Anyone have any other thoughts? If I do go with this strategy, I keep two other guys until the summer. If I know I'm not keeping Lynch or Slaton, I could take a shot at some backs on my bench who might have upside although the list is pretty shotty.
So I'm looking for advice on who out of the three you would keep. And based on those three, what other two would you hold on to, hoping for something to happen between now and the end of summer? Thanks, sorry for the long post!
I would be hussling to make a deal. In a 10 team league, harder to find someone who has a really bad team but someone must want a 2 for 1 deal. I would look to deal Slaton and Boldin for a top tier RB and go into the season with Lynch, Marshall and whomever.
