Keeper Big Ben - Add Vick??

Postby basketballmj33 » Mon Aug 15, 2011 8:14 pm

Okay in the ESPN 12-team league I am in, you can have one holdover each year. If they were drafted in rounds 1-10, they count as your pick in the keeper round, if past that 11-15, they count as your pick in that round you drafted them.

In my case, I took ben roethlisberger in the 13th last year (due to his suspension), so he was my clear cut value keeper, which allows me a pick in the keeper round.

QBs are the most valuable in this league due to 6 pts per TD

Other keepers across the league (1st/keeper round)
Tom Brady
Roddy White

Bradford (14th round)
Crosby (11th Round)
Hartley (12th)

With the 9th slot in the draft order: First rounds look like this

Keeper round - 1, 2, 3, 4(pick), 5, 6 (pick), 7, 8, 9 (me, pick), 10, 11(pick), 12
Round 1 - 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9(me), 10, 11, 12
Round 2 - 12, 11, 10, 9(me), 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, 1

Players that are available for the 4 picks in the keeper round are (from the top)
C. Johnson
Ray Rice
Andre Johnson

Would you advise me to take Vick, with a solid backup of Big Ben, and then hope for good RB, WR in the next rounds? Or take the best RB

I think Big Ben is adequate at QB, I would take best available RB or WR. There's no upside in taking Vick in the first round -- he has to outscore everyone as much as he did last year just to make the investment worthwhile... then you still have to get some mid or late round fliers to hit in order to be a legit contender.
