Help with Keepers (WHIR)

Postby Hogger1 » Sun Jun 05, 2011 7:55 pm

I have to keep 5 players. Fairly standard H2H 10 team points league except for the fact we start 2 QB's. Despite what I feel was a good team and the fact I had the second highest scoring team, I managed to finish 2nd last and pick second overall, then 19th. So I do lean a little towards keeping my 2 QB's (since I don't know what will come back to me in the 2nd round), though it's not set in stone.

Aaron Rodgers
Ben Roethlisberger
Jones-Drew
Shonn Greene
Deangelo WIlliams
Fred Jackson
Dez Bryant
Colston
Maclin
Stevie Johnson
Kennt Britt

So which 5? My first instinct is the first 4 players plus Bryant.

assuming your league isn't PPR, I would keep:
Rodgers
Big Ben
MJD
DWill
Greene

and take best available WR (or even an elite TE) at the 1.2.

I agree with the above posting. However, Im not as high on DWill. I think he goes to Denver and is reunited with Fox, so he should have a decent few years left....but i wouldnt fault you for keeping Dez over Dwill. Dez is a guy that could be top 5 annually at WR...if u r ok with the risk since he's such an idiot off the field. Im thinking there will be better value at WR at 1.02 in a 5 player keeper tho and u will be able to land a decent #1, so i side slightly with Dwill as ur 5th keeper as well........

Mine?

I agree except I would have to favor Maclin instead of Greene for now. Depends if Burress goes to Philly

I'm going to go the other way and agree with you keeping your first listed 4 plus Dez.

Unless you start 3 RB or 2 and a flex, I see no reason to keep a player you may only use once or twice over a solid WR2.

I can actually start 3 RB's (we have a flex position) and could consider Dwill, but I guess it would depend on where he plays. Don't love his value if he stays where he is...too much competition for carries.

And Snixx, I really don't know the rookies good enough yet to help in return. I just know I'm staying away from them this year. lol

Regardless, I have Bryant ranked MUCH higher than DWill in a keeper...and since you are already keeping 2 RBs it just makes more sense to hold onto at least one WR. Lil tidbit of info...Bryants ADP is roughly 30-35...where as DWill...45-50.

Interesting with the ADP info. The ADP that I just looked at has Bryant at 45 and DWill at 48. Of course, that's not taking into account the fact that it's a keeper league which would obviously move Bryant much higher. In fact with the rankings I looked at, you could throw a small blanket over Greene, Dwill, Maclin, Bryant, Johnson and Britt. But I think Greene's ADP will rise quite a bit and Bryant has the most upside of the receivers, so that sounds like the way to go.
