keeping 3 of these 5...WHIR

Postby letsgobirds » Mon Aug 22, 2011 8:36 am

10 team PPR with normal bonus and scoring. Need to keep 3 of these 5 and can keep players for as long as you please. top 30 draft picks from year before not available, so 2010s first 3 round players all go back on the board. Deciding between:

Rivers
Forte
Nicks,Bowe,VJax

Leaning towards Rivers,Forte,and Nicks, although I hate to let the VJax/Rivers combo go. Not too big on Bowe having the year he did last season. Let me know what you think and leave me a link.

Go with your gut... I would. Rivers/Nicks/Forte in a PPR league looks very nice indeed.... as long as your scoring is good for QBs?

VJax should have a good year too but sometimes combining a QB/WR can be a boom thing... or a bust thing, and bye weeks are more problematic. And, I think Nicks will probably outperform VJax anyway in a PPR league. Go Rivers/Forte/Nicks as long as your QB scoring is good... otherwise, you need to consider keeping Forte/Nicks and either Bowe or VJax(both of them have same bye week).

Agreed, Rivers, Forte and Nix. You might even be able to get Vincent Jackson back in the draft.

Well RIvers and Forte are a given and I think that I'd have to keep VJax. I normally don't like to keep combos from one team, but Vjax is highy motivated to finally get that long term deal he wants, so I think he is going to have a monster year. Good luck.

Forte, Nicks, and VJax.

I wouldn't ever recommend keeping a QB with only three keeper slots FWIW.

rivers was the 5th ranked player in all of the scoring in our league last year, behind only arian, roddy, vick, and rodgers. So the QB scoring is obviously biased lol.

Rivers, Nick and V-Jax for sure.

Nicks and V-Jax are both top 20 WR's that are true WR1's on their team.

River's is still a top 5 or 6 QB

You never know what you are going to get with Forte and the Bears.

And personally I love when I have a solid WR and the matching QB, especially when they are on a good team that likes to air it out. R. Mathews and Tolbert will steal some goal line touchdowns, but they also are good enough to allow for more 1 on 1 coverage for V-jax.

Another vote for Rivers, VJax, and Nicks. Jackson was great when he was there last season.

I normally don't like QB-WR combos but if you got an elite one go for it! I am trying Brady and Ocho this year, I wuold also love Manning and Wayne but beyond those 3 not sure I would do any others unless the team is playing the Bengals every week.
