2 questions.....

Who is the better keeper between Jonathan Stewart and LeGarette Blount?

Who is the better keeper between Vincent Jackson and Mike Williams (TB)?

Good questions and you are probably goign to get opposing answers.

I would keep Stewart over Blount. I have been a huge fan of Stewart since coming into the league and believe he is a star and a player that can be a top 5 RB. Blount, while big, bruising as well as putting up a decent rookie campaign is just not as good as Stewart.

This one is even harder. Mike Williams could be a superstar. VIncent Jacksonn has been. In strictly a smaller keeper league I would give the edge to Jackson, in a dynasty league I would give the edge to Williams and take the risk that I have a superstar kid rostered.

Thanks, forgot to say it's a 10 team league with 5 keepers per year. ALSO whichever of the two I don't keep I'm going to try and trade for some draft picks....

To me the first one is harder. Blount will probably be the guy for a while in TB but I feel Stewart is a better back. If DWill goes elsewhere Stewarts value skyrockets. Id probably keep Stewart because I have always been high on him.

The second one I would keep Mike Williams. He has less baggage and proved to be very solid in his first year.

I favor Blount and Williams -- the big problem being your heavy reliance on TB's offense.

Carolina is an awful, terrible team in an awful, terrible situation. Thus, while J. Stewart maybe a better back, he's in a far, far worse situation.

V. Jax has put up awesome points, but I can't help but be upset with him last season. Williams is consistent, in a good spot, and is a very talented young WR. I'm a fan.

This. No problem with any of the possible combos you could come up with from this crop of 4 guys, but I think Stewart still has a bit more upside than Blount and I have a feeling what we've seen from Williams is just the tip of the iceberg. Like I said, a Blount/VJax combo wouldn't hurt you, but gun to the head I like the other two guys a tad better ...

Blount and WIlliams

I have both and would/may drop Stewart because even though jstew may be the new #1, carolina is crap.

Mike Williams has less baggage than who, Delta? :-b

That being said, Williams has been a total professional since joining the league. But it's only been one year -- let's see if he has indeed matured since his Syracuse days. I still think that Williams has the higher upside due to his age, and would probably keep him over VJax, but his past has to be considered.

I would keep Stewart over Blount.
