Which 2 players should I keep this year

Postby umma10 » Wed Aug 10, 2011 9:55 am

I'm in a PPR league and have the following players:

Ray Rice - RB - Ravens
LeSean McCoy - RB - Philly
Calvin Johnson - WR - DET

I need to keep two players

I am thinking Rice and Johnson (2 top tier players)
I start 2 RB's and 3 WR's

Tough to throw Mega back but I definitely keep the 2 RB's.

If I'm you I'm keeping Rice and Mccoy. Both of them get there runs and catches so they are valuable in PPR leagues. Megatron kinda scares me this year and even if he can have a good season it won't be with lots of passes thrown his way

I agree but, I also have J. Best as my rookie keeper so I figure I am pretty good with RB...sorry I forgot to mention that in the original post. Does this change your mind at all?

Rookie keeper? So are you required to draft a rookie each year that you have to keep?

It is good to have depth at RB, I would keep both McCoy and Rice as well, both are great PPR options.

If your able to see who other teams are keeping before the draft, if everyone is bringing back RBs your going to definitely want to keep both McCoy and Rice, I highly doubt many people will keep WRs so guys like Calvin, Fitz, Wayne and Jennings should be available.

I still gotta stay with shady and rice, the guys will do work for you and I wouldn't want to play anyone who has both in a PPR league

I think you're in a tough position.

Like everyone has said, Rice and McCoy are the top two in that group, but Calvin is not far behind and I really think elite receivers gain value in a 2 RB / 3 WR league.

The big problem with keeping both of those RBs along with Best is that you end up with 3 keeper RBs when you can only start two. That pretty much forces you to ignore RBs for the first few rounds of the draft and you will end up weak at WR in a 3 WR PPR league, which could really hurt.

If you want to keep the best two players, keep Rice and McCoy. If you want an opportunity to draft a better, more complete overall team, I'd go Rice and Calvin.
