Keeper opinions please

Postby jayco33 » Thu Aug 04, 2011 12:14 am

Hi, I'm having a hard time picking keepers for a 10 team league.
Starters are: QB, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/R/T, W/R/T, K
Not a ppr league, but RBs get a point for every 20 yards while WR is a point per 15 yards. Last year, other than Foster, WR and RB scoring was very similar.

It comes down to keeping four of the following:
Michael Vick
Drew Brees
Jamaal Charles
Rashard Mendenhall
Andre Johnson
Roddy White.

Thanks!

Where do you get to draft?

I'm always in the minority on these forums, but in this case I love the RB and WR selection. I think there's plenty of depth in QBs in the league, and getting a decent one (and probably even a good one) will be no where as difficult as replacing those tier RBs and WRs.

I would dump both QBs.

I think I'd keep Vick, White, Johnson and Charles, though dealing either QB + either of your backs for an upgrade to a top-3 guy like Foster/Peterson/CJ2K or Rice wouldn't hurt trying just to see if you can up Charles a bit. Either way, you have the top QB, top 2 WRs and a top-5 back if you keep the four I said and there's NOTHING wrong with that. Mendy and Brees are nice, but not on par with the other 4 IMO ...

I think I'd keep your wr's and rb's, those are four quality guys. There is a ton of depth at qb now and with it only being a 10 team league you will have plenty of options to chose from, even if some are kept. Good luck.

Thanks. I pick 7th and we have to post keepers on the message board, so I may also wait as long as I can and try and get an idea what the 6 ahead of me are keeping too.

With your league scoring, I think you have to bump guys that score (or can score) a lot of TDs. All of your options can, but I would keep:
Mendenhall
Charles
AJ
Vick


If you can make any deals at all before announcing your keepers, I would do virtually any 2-for-1 deal to get a Foster/Rice/AP/CJ. Offer a Brees/Mendy, or White/Mendy, or something similar, for one of the top RBs.
