Can keep 2

Postby myke612 » Wed Jul 06, 2011 10:29 am

12 team 1/2pt ppr. Id have the 11th pick in 1st rd. Serpentine draft. Im already keeping Mcfadden bc he will only cost me a 15rd pick. I can keep 3 total so I need to pick 2 out of Roddy White, Michael Turner, Frank Gore. Gore would cost me a 1st rd pick, Turner a 2nd and white a 3rd. Which 2 should i keep? TIA

I would keep Roddy and Turner. I have Turner and Gore ranked close, but I choose Turner because it will cost you a 2nd round pick instead of a first.

I agree with TNF here. Gore isn't much higher than Turner, and being able to keep Turner + an Elite WR is a great thing. You might even be able to snag a high end RB2 or low end RB1 with that first rounder. You don't lose much downgrading from Gore to Turner, but you gain a lot by being able to keep the first rounder instead of the second rounder. Sounds like a no brainer to me. Good luck out there. ;-D

Agreed with the picks and the reasoning of TNF here. Roddy is a no-brainer for a 3rd-rounder. Getting that bonus round and considering things like it's .5PPR instead of a full point, I think it's worth keeping Turner instead of Gore at "RB2" ...

Turner and White also here for the reasons stated above. Gore taking a first depletes his overall value as a keeper. He might still go there but probably at the end with last years numbers

I disagree. I'd rather have Gore at 11 than Turner at 14 in a PPR. I think Turner is the rb most likely to get old quick this season. Give me Gore's receptions

Help me if you can

This is an easy one for a guy who has little faith in Gore and drafted Hunter in a dynasty way too high :-b

Fact of the matter is Gore vs Turner is a matter of inches...but you are getting a better pick by going with the player who isn't coming off of a season ending injury.

I was going also say that the picks now dont really matter. If I keep gore , Id have the 14th pick. If I kept turner , id have the 11th pick. The guy with the 12/13th picks will lose them due to him keeping his 1/2 rd players from last yr so esentially the 11th and 14th pick will be the same pick.
