Hey guys I am playing fantasy for the first time this year. I inherited a team in a league that has been going for years. It is 10 teams, standard scoring, 3 keepers. I am keeping AP for sure, but need to choose 2 out of J Charles, Mendenhall, and M Schaub. Looking at the rosters I don't think there are going to be any decent qb's left so I am leaning toward keeping Schaub. I can only play 2 rb's so that makes sense, but I do not know who to keep out of Mendy & Charles.
I would look at trading Mendy and Schaub for an elite WR or a top 3 QB is you want to keep a QB. In a 10 team league there will be tons of quality QB's available so personally I would not keep one. 10 guys through for 4000+ yards last year so don't panic on a QB. Look to get that top tier WR.
That's a tough one. I'm coming from a 5 player keeper league which actually keeps a total of SEVEN players so I know where you are coming from. Our 1st round picks are generally the No. 2 caliber RB or WR someone couldn't keep, QBs, and No. 3 or No. 4 WRs in the 1st round. In the 2nd top 10 QBs for sure go off the board, and by the late 2nd or early 3rd Top 10 TEs are drafted. I can relate to why you would want a QB early.
So with that in mind, I'm conflicted on whether or not Charles is a better decision then Schaub. Who is already kept at QB? If Brees, Manning, Rodgers, and Brady are gone then Schuab isn't a terrible idea. I don't like the fact that Charles will have Thomas Jones to compete with too. Either way you REALLY need a No. 1 WR in the 1st rd and having a QB already frees you up to draft another RB in the 2nd.

I would have kept Schaub or I liked the idea of trying to trade them both for 1 WR1.
From what I understand McCluster is going to be used more as a WR than a RB. The Chiefs had to sign a Rb. There are very few teams that only have 1 workhorse back and Charles isn't big enough to handle the load for 16 games alone. I think Thomas Jones is going to help Charles by giving him some breathers during the game. Charles impressed the heck out me last year and I see no reason why he can't have another great year.
