Keeper question if we ever have a season, WHIR

Postby k_dubya » Thu Jul 07, 2011 5:19 pm

I can and will keep 6 Non PPR, bigger the play the more bonus pts you get.
Foster, Mendy, Blount, Stewart, White, Clark is what I am thinking just because TE are HUGE in my league. I kinda want to keep Reggie Wayne but am having a hard time deciding who to drop for him. I guess it would be between Mendy, Blount and JStew but think both of the latter 2 will blow up and I can ravage someone in a trade.

Thoughts, is keeping 4 RB too much? Would anyone keep Cutler over any of them?

As long as it isn't PPR RBs are strong but I would keep Wayne over probably Blount or Stewart. If you look at Wayne's numbers they are comparable to a RB. He is good for 1200 and 8 TDs where Blount and Stewart could blow up but who knows. If you can wait on Free Agency I would. Blount is who I would drop unless DWilliams resigns with CAR.

Thanks for the help!

I would keep:
Foster
Mendy
Stewart
White
Wayne
Clark


It sucks to have to give either Blount or Wayne back, but since you start 2 RBs 3WRs no flex, I think keeping Wayne gives you the strongest core of players possible going into your draft. A nice "side effect" is that you can take BPA (best player available) when its your turn to draft... you won't feel the need to reach for a WR when there's better value at RB or QB.

edit: since you are awarded bonuses for big plays, Wayne is more likely to produce those than Blount IMHO... making this an easier decision in my eyes.

I can't see keeping a bench player over Reggie Wayne. I would throw Blount back because I think last year was his peak and JStew has so much potential.

Thanks for your help on mine

Foster, Mendenhall, and White are all solid keepers.

With your roster settings, you should keep Wayne. Keeping four backs (one of whom you have to bench) and throwing back a wide out like Reggie Wayne is not a good idea.

As far as the running back to let go, I agree it has to be Blount. It would be between Blount and Johnathan Stewart. When do you have to have your keepers set by? When the new CBA is done and the free agent chaos begins, it could affect JStew significantly. All signs point to DeAngelo Williams leaving Carolina, which would be great of Stewart. A featured Johnathan Stewart could be a very productive one.

I'm not really sure what you mean about TE's being huge in your league, but I'll take your word for it. Clark is a keeper.

Foster, Mendenhall, White, Wayne, Stewart, Clark.

If you have no flex position then you are better just keeping 3 RBs. Which would leave you with Foster, Mendy, White, Clark, Wayne and the toss being between Blount and Stewart.

Right now since Free Agency hasn't started/taken place it kinda hard to tell what will happen, but if rumors are true then D. Williams will go elsewhere leaving Stewart as primary back with Goodson being the backup and Blount being primary back with who knows as that back (because C. Williams is a FA). And I would rather have Stewart over Blount, but again it comes down to what happens in Free Agency.

I agree with this. I am in favor of keeping starters before bench players unless the bench player is too valuable to give up...in your case he isn't.

I agree with everybody no reason to keep 4 RBs. However I would keep Blount. I like TBs team situation better than Carolina's.

Foster
Mendy
Blount
White
Wayne
Clark

Keep these. Blount is the unquestioned starter in T. Bay and play it safe with 3 stud RBs 2 stud WR and #1 or #2 best TE in the game to keep with.

Your first pick I'd take any top QB that's available or if ANOTHER stud WR falls down. That's a great set of keepers. 3 safe solid RBs for depth 2 stud WR out of 3 and a top TE. I'd be happy with these keepers.
