3rd keeper: wallace, greene or hillis? WHIR

Postby sha » Sun Jul 31, 2011 8:05 pm

16 team keeper league, TD heavy scoring (6pt/td, 2 pts/50 yds rushing or receiving). we keep 3. michael turner and roddy white seem to be locks for my 1st 2 keepers. who should my 3rd keeper be and who should i try to deal before draft day? Mike Wallace (leaning towards making him my 3rd keeper at this point), peyton hillis (like the TD's, but lots of factors could lead to drop off) or shonn greene (could be a td machine, but also can be fumble machine, end up in rex's dog house again). thoughts? leave a link to yours !

Hey Sha,

Do you have any idea who your leaguemates will be keeping and will you be losing draft picks for keeping guys? I like Wallace a lot in this league because of his deep play ability and his chance to have high yardage and big TD totals. If you've got some solid RBs going back into the draft, keep Turner, White, and Wallace, and then get the best available RB in the draft and you should be set pretty good with good 1-2 punches at RB and WR. Even if there isn't a lot of RBs available, I don't think you can pass up a strong WR pair like White and Wallace. Good luck out there.

I would keep White, Greene, and Wallace over Turner, in that order.

Very nice start in a 16 team league.

If it were me I'd roll with Greene as the last keeper. I really like him this year, great upside. I have trouble thinking Hillis will return another crazy Fantasy season.

Any help?

safe keeper = Wallace
biggest potential = Greene


Just depends what else is out there but I really am high on greene this year

Going a different way from the masses on this one. With that protracted yardage scoring, I think Wallace is the odd man out. I don't even know if he outgains Greene in yardage this season, and I think a Jets RB is a safer bet for double-digit TD upside than the burner WR. Turner is underrated this season in non PPR formats IMO, and I think he's your second guy after Roddy (and they could easily flip-flop)

I agree with the earlier guy....keep Greene, Wallace, and White....3 best...turner is older and these guys give you a future as well....I see Turner doingn well but probably not better than Greene will
