Thought I'd pick the brain of some of you regarding a situation I'm facing.
I'm going into the 2nd year of a PPR Keeper Football League with a bunch of my buddies. It's a 12-team league and each team keeps 2 players per year at any position.
My current two "listed" keepers are Drew Brees + Calvin Johnson.
Last year I tried for the win and traded my 1st round pick away. Therefore, with NO 1st round pick and no RB as my keeper I'm thinking of not keeping Brees and keeping Matt Forte instead. What would you guys do - stick with Brees or keep Forte? Running back is just such a shallow position so I'm worried that if I don't keep one, plus the fact that I don't have a 1st round pick to draft one, that's really going to hurt me as by the time my pick (16th overall) comes in the 2nd round it will be very slim pickings whereas I could land a decent QB like Schaub, Matt Ryan, E.Manning, etc with a mid-round pick. I'm big on Calvin's upside so dropping him I don't see as an option. On a side note, I also own Mike Wallace so if any of you would rather keep him over Forte or Brees I would love to hear your feedback.
To give you an idea of what players are being kept in my pool here is the list..
Team A: Vick and AP
Team B: Brady and MJD
Team C: Rodgers and V.Jax
Team D: Romo and Mendenhall
Team E: Brees and Calvin Johnson
Team F: McFadden and McCoy
Team G: Foster and Andre Johnson
Team H: Chris Johnson and Jamal Charles
Team I: Wes Welker and Greg Jennings
Team J: Turner and Fitzgerald
Team K: Gore and White
Team L: Rice and Hillis
So what do you guys think - stick with Brees or keep Forte or Wallace instead?
