Keeper league: Who to keep? WHIR!

Postby jhurstjunior » Thu Jul 21, 2011 11:20 am

I am in a 12 team where we get to keep two players from the previous year. I do not lose anything by keeping players and since I took third in the league I will have the 10th pick in the draft. I have three players that I have to decided between. Aaron Rodgers, Jamal Charles, and Andre Johnson. I think that Aaron Rodgers is a no brainer, but I am in a toss up between Charles and Johson. Let me know what you think and I will help you out just leave the link.

I know Rodgers is an elite quarterback, but I'd rather keep Jamaal Charles and Andre Johnson. Of the 3 players, Rodgers has to be the most likely to return to you with the 10th pick. If this is a full PPR league or even a .5 PPR, Charles and Johnson make a great keeper pair. Having the best wide receiver and a top five running back to start off your team creates a very solid core.

If you'd rather keep Aaron Rodgers, then I would keep Aaron Rodgers and Jamaal Charles. In a 12 team league with 2 keepers per team and your relatively late pick (10th) the odds of you getting a true RB1 are very, very slim. With all of the RBBC's and goal line touchdown vultures in the NFL, an explosive back in a possibly improving situation (HC Todd Haley has said that JC needs more touches) is valuable. Because of that, Jamaal Charles in the no brainer in my mind. If no points are awarded for receptions, I could see keeping Charles and Rodgers.

The league is a standard non PPR league.

If this is only a 1 QB league, keep Charles and Johnson, easily. There is plenty of depth and other options to be had at QB, while Charles and Johnson are giving you an elite player at 2 of the hard positions to fill.

Another one for Charles and AJ. That's a great start to the team. There is plenty of QB depth, so don't worry about Rodgers.

I would go with Rodgers and Charles myself. Rodgers had great numbers last year and should improve with Finley coming back Good luck.
