Best at pick 45 or Fred Jackson at pick 76 WHIR

Postby murphysxm » Thu Jul 07, 2011 2:14 pm

I have the option of keeping either player at those positions. I draft out of the #4 spot so will be taking a stud RB there. Do I go for Best's upside or the better value and consistensy of Jackson.

Please let me know your thoughts

What does the rest of your team look like? And is this PPR or standard scoring? If its PPR, I think I could say Best without even asking. Best without the turf toe problem is explosive.

I think Best is greater than Jackson. They will both be committee RBs but I think best has a better chance of blowing up (see Jamaal Charles).

Thanks for help on mine!

Don't waste a keeper on a 30 yo RB. Fred was taken at pick 69 in a Cafe non-PPR mock draft. This is not a huge bargain you should worry about. Keep the better player. Grab Fred at pick 76 - it's 70/30 he's still there in a PPR league.

Absolutely keep Best. If you miss on Jackson, you miss on Jackson. And if that happens, I predict you'll be happier in the long run ;-D

Best is definitely the better option.

It is a PPR league and we start 3 RB. There are only 2 keepers per team, so not a huge impact. My only reason for questioning is that starting 3 RB's make Jackson and his consistency nice. Yes Best can blow up, but also disappeared a lot last year and I think he loses all red zone touches to the rook.

I'll probably go with Best, but wanted to hear others opinions. Thanks for the help
