MJD, McFadden, or Calvin Johnson, can keep 2 of 3.

Postby Cowboysguy2000 » Fri Aug 19, 2011 11:42 am

14 team, standard scoring, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 felx spot league. No PPR.

Out of MJD, McFadden, and Calvin Johnson; which two should I keep?

Thanks!

since your league only starts 2 WRs and isnt ppr, i think there will be plenty of them, id keep the 2 RBs. Tough call though.

I still think in a non ppr you need to keep calvin johnson. (hes still a top 3 WR and im assuming you HAVE to start to WR)

I've never been a big fan of Mcfadden personally (maybe its because I hate the wasteland that is oakland?) so I'd go with MJD, I'm looking for him to have a rebound year (even though last year wasnt' as bad as some people may think)

I agree with this. I'd likely keep MJD and Megatron as well.

Thanks for the replies. I've actually just gotten some intrest from another owner in trading Calvin Johnson for one of his mid to high round draft picks. I'm kind of leaning towards keeping MJD and McFadden anyways, so if I could get a 4th round pick out of CJ, who I'd lose anyways, I'll probably end up going that route.

To be honest I dont even think that this should be a question, MJD and Calvin Johnson (AKA - Megatron...best nickname ever!) are your keepers. McFadden is an interesting player and I like his upside but he has to many question marks to keep. He's on a bad team, the Raiders are not going to go 8-8 again, and he has Michael Bush stealing carries and TD's. I think you can do much better at your RB2 than McFadden if you're in a league that keeps only 2 players. That or if you really like McFadden, draft him in the 1st round of your draft because odds are he'll be there when you draft. If you throw Calvin back out he's going to be taken quick.

Keep MJD and Megatron
