I agree with you. AP and Rogers. Thanks everyone. Looking forward to the upcoming season.

Well it depends on the way you want to work it. If you kept Blount that is great value, but unproven performance. To me I'm taking AP and Rodgers. They are complete studs and are a great starting two some. Good luck.

Which 2 to keep? ADP, Rodgers or McCoy - WHIR

Aaron Rodgers - 1st rd - 10th overall
Adrian Peterson - 2nd round 11th pick
LeSean McCoy - 4th round 40th pick
Dwayne Bowe - 5th round 50th pick
LaGarrette Blount - 5th round 50th pick

Cant go wrong with any of the top 3; or last two value wise. I am leaning toward just stacking the backfield with ADP and McCoy. Would hate to see Rodger light it up. Other Scenario is Rodgers and McCoy; but ADP is in a contract year. If I go with ADP and Rodgers, I wont pick until 30th overall.

Any thoughts? Like I said, win win pretty much no matter how I play it

WHIR

Thanks


ADP and McCoy without question.

Quick follow up note. I kept Rodgers and ADP with a 1st and 2nd round sacrifice.

Logic here. ADP was and is still a stud. Average year for ADP is still a top five RB. And upside is huge. Dont forget he is not holding out (like Johnson) for a contract. He is going to let his play do the talking. I woudn't trade this guy for anyone in my league.

As for Rodgers, he is getting props for sure as the #1 or #2 QB in the league. But ignore all the "expert" rankings. Watch him play. He is smart. He throws a lot of balls. He has decent receivers and a team that depends on his yardage. And he is healthy. This guy took a beating the last couple of years and still put up stats. My league is touchdown heavy and yargage heavy. Plus bonuses for running yards and TDs. All in Rogers wheelhouse.

I love McCoy and hate to give him up but he isnt more valuable than these two guys.

My two cents.

Using your scoring system, compare Rodgers last year to the #6 and the #12 QB and see what the point differential was. It may change your mind.

I would love to know. Scoring system:

QBs
Yardage - 10 points for 250 yards and the 1 point for every 10 yards afterward.
Yardage running/receiving - 5 points for 51 yards and 1 point for every 10 afteward
TDs - 6 points for 0-9 yards, 9 points for 10-39 yards and 12 points for 40+ (Double points for running/receiving (ie run a 12 yard TD and the QB gets 18 points)
Minus 1 for a sack or INT

RB
Yardage - 10 points for 100 yards and the 1 point for every 10 yards afterward.
Yardage passing/receiving - 5 points for 51 yards and 1 point for every 10 afteward
TDs - 6 points for 0-9 yards, 9 points for 10-39 yards and 12 points for 40+ (Double points for passing/receiving (ie run a 12 yard TD and the QB gets 18 points)

Rogers is a stud passer and scrambles with the best. I believe, he is the to QB with this system.

I don't disagree that he will be the #1 QB for your system. The question is by how much? You can't compare the stats of a QB to a RB. You compare QB to QB. So, if Rodgers outpoints Romo (for example) by 37 points and McCoy outpoints whoever you end up with by 53 points, you lose an advantage.
