R. Mendenhall $24
C. Portis $28
P. Thomas $12
B. Edwards $11
S. Holmes $10
A. Johnson $32
Who should I keep?
Portis at $28 and AJ at $32 are no-brainers.
Manning is quite expensive at $67 -- unless you start 2 QBs I would release him.
When I am selecting these keepers, I want the best combination of talent, opportunity, and cost. Pierre Thomas is a pretty good value for $12 -- he could be a nice option as a RB3.
Your fourth is a toughie.... I would pick Holmes at $10. Schaub for $7 sounds like a pretty good value too, especially in comparison to the price for Manning.
That leaves you with $108... take some of that money you saved and invest in a high-upside RB2, a high-upside WR2/WR3, and a 2nd-tier QB, and you have yourself a decent starting squad.
For my franchise tag, I would select Lynch. I think Lynch's suspension will certainly hurt his auction price... you may be able to get a bit of a deal for a guy that can help you down the stretch.
