If you had to pick from the list of WRs below who would you take?
Would you go with an aging veteran that is slowly speed and putting up worst stats, or would you take a chance on someone that could break out this year?
According to last year’s stats, the free agent WRs avail in my keeper league draft are listed by point totals as follows:
I'm almost more included to skip the vets on the decline and underachievers like Mason, Santana Moss, Housh, Lee Evans, T.O. etc and take a risk on breakout potential guys like Floyd, Breaston, Avery, Aromashodu, Kevin Walter, Jacoby Jones, James Jones, Julian Edelman, L Moore etc. who are young and on the upswing and have the potential to break out this season. The risk/reward factor is high, but we all know that guys like Mason and Santana Moss are only good for the next year or two and really don’t help me build a better team for the future.
I am in a 10 team keeper league with a rather unorthodox structure for keepers. We keep 5 veteran players, and we draft 5 rookies each year and keep 2 for the following year so long as we don't start them at all during the season. So basically, round 1 in our draft is like round 6 or 7 in a normal re-draft. I have the following keepers coming into the draft:
There’s a possibility that I will make a trade to get MJD and the 1.09 pick in exchange for DJax and McCoy. I need a home run hitter like MJD to win me games. If that happens I’m probably picking Sims-Walker at 3rd overall and seeing what is left at 1.09 for QB or taking the BPA.
If I don’t make the trade then I’m almost prepared to take Cutler or Kolb and take my chances with a less experienced potential breakout player that I draft late in the 2nd.
