Please Help with Keepers

Postby parrotheadpirates » Tue Aug 02, 2011 9:43 pm

Touchdown league QB's only get 3 pts for passing TD. 10 team league, have to keep 2 and can keep 3 and lose your first round pick. I think over half the league will keep at least 3. I draft 7th. Start 1 QB, 2RB, 2 WR, 1 Flex

Who would you keep out of this group.

Philip Rivers
Frank Gore
Matt Forte
Roddy White
Antonio Gates
Santonio Holmes

So you only get points for TDs, correct? 6 for all receiving and rushing scores (including QBs) and 3 for passing scores?

I think I'd keep 3 then, with them being Rivers (He'll get close to 30 TDs and be your top dog, even at half price), White (easily arguable as your second-highest TD scorer) and probably Forte as your third. I think Gore finds the end zone 2-3 times fewer than Forte, and probably about in the same range as Holmes and Gates, who I only see getting about 10 semi-healthy games this season one way or the other ...

Given you have to lose your 1st I wouldnt keep three. The logic is not one of your guys is a 1:07 pick.

With that being said I would keep Roddy and Forte

That's what I thought at first, but if QBs are 3-point TD guys, don't the top 5 project above all other RBs? I don't see anyone I feel comfortably projecting for over 15 TDs, which is what it would take to top 28-29 from a QB.

Very unfamiliar to these kind of leagues, but seems to make sense to me on the surface at least? :-?

Thanks for the help. I was leaning towards Rivers and White. It was just down to Forte or Gore.
