Keeper help: Rodgers at $50 in auction league? WHIR

Postby pcockren » Tue Sep 06, 2011 11:03 am

I'm in a 10 team auction league, standard ESPN scoring. We can keep up to 3 players each year. So far, I'm keeping Ray Rice at $22, Dallas Clark at $15. I can keep Rodgers for $50, which is approximately his average value in ESPN auction drafts. So far, the other QBs being kept by other teams are Vick, Ryan, Roethisberger, and Bradford. In ESPN scoring, Rodgers was close to the top in scoring last year, and should be this year, but I'm not sure if I should keep him or opt for a lower price option, like Brees, Brady or Rivers...Any thoughts?

Tough call....I would risk trying to get another QB at a lower price. Brees, Brady, Rivers & Rodgers should put up roughly similar points this year that it is worth saving the dollar or two so you can spend more elsewhere.

Now I caution you, if other teams are already keeping QBs this leaves a few QBs left and the price for guys like Brady, Rivers and Brees might be higher than you originally expected. If your league is anything like mine, owners that already filled the QB position will bid up the price or maybe you'll get a bargain, you never know with auctions. Simple economics ;-D

If you know for sure that Brady/Brees/Rivers/Ryan are going back into the draft, then I would let Rodgers and his $50 HIGH salary walk......

I really like Rivers and Ryan this season, who will obviously cost you less the Rodgers,

Just my 2 cents,

I agree with chicago and Vikingfan, if you know those guys are going back into the draft then cut ties with Rodgers and shoot for someone cheaper. Best of luck.

Definitely try and get one of the other QB's with a lower salary. Rodgers at $50 is just too high imo.

I have no experience with auction leagues, but, without knowng anything about your scoring system and starting lineup requirements, I would say pass on Rodgers. I'm not a fan of overpaying for QBs. I would rather have stud RBs and WRs.

i would also drop Rodgers if you know you are going to be able to take another QB at a lower price. I think Brees, Rivers, and Brady are pretty dang close to Rodger's value and skill. I think even Romo would be a solid value pick this year. He has too many weapons not to succeed.

I'd rather invest that money in another stud RB to pair with Ray Rice.

The best drafts are ones where you get VALUE for most of your picks. $50 for Rogers is not value. It won't be the worst thing in the world, but if you're savvy you can spend that money much more wiser.
