Want All Opinions (NFL)

Postby seven426 » Sat Aug 27, 2011 10:04 pm

I am in a fantasy football league that has a "keeper option." I can keep up to 3 players with a restriction that 2 players cannot be kept for the same position. I have the possibility to keep one of two runningbacks. Either (Buf)Fred Jackson or (Ind) Joseph Addai. Either player I choose would be counted as my 7th round draft pick. Who should I keep? Or should I even keep either?

I also I have the option to keep wide receiver (NYG) Mario Manningham. So if I were to try and protect him that would also be a 7th round pick, that is if I choose not to keep either runningback that I have available. If I decide to keep Manningham and one of the runningbacks it would cost me my 6th and 7th round draft picks. So.....should I also keep Manningham? Should I keep and/or a combination of these players. I appreciate anyone taking the time to read and especially reply to this query.

I would keep Jackson and Manningham (without knowing your other options) Both are worth 6th and 7th round picks imo.

Thanks, that was my initial thought too. I figure Addai, being old and on a pass happy team, wasn't a viable option to keep. Those are my only options as keepers really, nobody else worth keeping at rounds above 6. I planned to keep Jackson, just wasn't sure what I would do with Manningham. But I agree with your thoughts. Thanks again.

Yeah I was disappointed with Manningham's output last year, but there are a lot of variables that lead me to think he'll have much bigger numbers this year. Smith stole a lot of targets, also Hixon had a few big games where he probably stole some balls too. Hixon has fallen way down the depth chart this year. Barring a total bust by the NYG's then he should easily put up 5th round draft numbers, maybe higher.

First of it would really depend on the size of your league, if you are in a 12 team or more league I would strongly consider keeping Manningham and maybe FJack. If you are in an 8 or 10 league I would top both (maybe consider keeping Manningham in a 10 team league). Either way I would drop FJack as there is a very good chance he would still be there in the 6th and 7th round if nothing better is available.
