Braylon was a HUGE dud for me last year so now I'm torn between:
T.O, Braylon, Willie Parker, Jonathan Stewart, McNabb? Only can keep 3 of these guys. Thanks for any insight you guys may have.
The rest are very tough. Since it a keeper vs dynasty youth is not as important. I would probably keep Parker because you will need to have some RB. The third pick is even tougher. Mcnadds, TO, or J Stew. All have problems and all have upside. I would rule J Stew out because he isn't going to do that much for you this year with Deangelo in the mix. Mcnadds is a solid qb when healthy and TO brings a big ? I would probably keep TO because I feel he will be drafted before the others.
Before any of the above I would try and trade 2 of those 3 for a better player to keep.

I have him as a shoe in!! He usually goes all out in his first year with a team. I know Trent isn't that good though but with Lee Evans going deep I think T.O will catch a lot of slant passes across the middle. I have them ranked based on who I might get with my first round pick and the PPR rules. (or 4th round if it were a redraft.) T.O, Braylon, and Parker.
Stewart should be draftable in round 1 due to DeAngelo's unbelievable performance last year. I have until late July early August but as of now I'm leaning T.O, Braylon, and Parker. I have to think that Braylon won't stink up the joint 2 years in a row. Parker is a starter and should do better than Stew I think? Thanks for the responses and insights so far.
You're absolutely correct about T.O. He's always a monster his first season with a new team. Trent Edwards is a fine passer (he's done great by Lee Evans) who's been shackled by lack of talented targets.
Sometimes I think people confuse how you go about a keeper league in contrast with how you go about a dynasty league. In a dynasty league, a player like Jonathan Stewart is very valuable because he's a young, very talented RB who will eventually get his chance to shine as the "go to guy" for his team. In a keeper league like this one, some of the thought has to go into things like who are you most likely to be able to "redraft" and who can give you the most production this season. It's not hard in a league with 3 keepers to replace a guy you kept the year before and so you need to look more "now" than you would necessarily in a dynasty. That being said, here is who I think you should keep.
1. Willie Parker - Take this for what you will with me being a Steelers fan but also keep in mind that I do know my team.
I'll premise this by saying that I think you will struggle this season if you do not keep at least 1 RB...you cannot survive in a keeper league without keeping any RBs and right now, this is looking like your best bet for immediate production. The Steelers have been, and will continue to be a team that wants to pound the ball...Parker is still their guy and while Mendenhall will definitely get some touches, Parker is their main back for at least this season as this will almost be like Mendenhall's rookie season since he missed pretty much all last year. Don't expect RB1 numbers from him but he could be a solid RB2.
2. Braylon Edwards
He definitely had a disappointing season last year but that doesn't change that he's still a very good young WR with enough talent to be one of the best fantasy WRs in the NFL. The Browns still won't have a great running game and their defense will get them behind in games so expect him to still get plenty of targets and while he may drop some, he's still their go-to-guy with Winslow out of the picture.
3. Terrell Owens - You have no idea how hard it is for me to recommend you keep this guy
Honestly...you won't find many who like TO less than I do but I think he's your 3rd best keeper here. I don't think you can expect "normal" TO numbers from him in Buffalo but he will still be a solid WR for you I think. He is aging and Edwards is easily the worst QB he's had throwing him the ball in many years (outside of the occasional Brad Johnson outing) and I don't know that the old "TO always tears it up in his first year with a new team" will definitely apply here like it has in the past, but nonetheless he's a talented wideout on a team likely to need to pass the ball around the field some.
I would, however, draft RBs with your first 2 picks or at least 2 of the first 3...you're going to have a tough time making it work otherwise at that position. I think it would be worth redrafting Stewart if you don't have someone land in your lap who you can't pass up...I don't anticipate DeAngelo Williams having another season like he had last year and Stewart is a bruising, talented runner who can definitely be a star in this league if they give him the chance. He could end up being one of your keepers next year as both Parker and TO could be guys that may fade into "non keeper" mode after this season.
