Help me pick my ONE keeper for 2012

Postby Tom Emanski AllStars » Mon Dec 26, 2011 7:13 pm

Here's the deal. We can only keep one keeper for the next year. There's a 3 year keeper limit, and you forfeit the draft round that your keeper was picked in. Any free agent adds are automatically counted as 10th round draft picks.

Aaron Rogers was my keeper for the last 2 years, I can keep him for 1 more year then he has to return to the draft pool. I drafted him in the 4th round two years ago.
But I made some moves after I lost the 1st round playoff game and picked up Jamaal Charles, Fred Jackson and Peyton Manning so they will count as 10th rounders with a full 3 year term ahead of them.

That being said, who should my one and only keeper be.....I'm leaning toward Manning or Jammal Charles

QB: Aaron Rogers (4th Round) - 1yr left on keeper term
RB: Maurice Jones Drew (1st Round)
RB: Demarco Murray (FA/10th round)
WR: Greg Jennings (2nd Round)
WR: Anquan Boldin (5th round)
W/R: Kevin Smith (FA/10th round)
TE: Aaron Hernandez (14th round)
K: Jason Hansen

BN: Peyton Manning (FA / 10th round)
BN: Jamaal Charles (FA / 10th round)
BN: Fred Jackson (FA / 10th round)

BN: Tim Tebow (FA / 10th round)
BN: Santana Moss (FA / 10th round)
BN: Toby Gerhart (FA / 10th round)

Leave a link, I'll return the favor

Gotta go with Rodgers in the 4th round that's still insane value.
Though Charles is an intriguing pick also.

Rogers Hands down......don't overthink it....

He has no question marks........ play for 2012....and think next year for some pickups for the 10th rounder the next year.....

would also suggest a rule change......If a player is drafted that round stays with him regardless or not

Yeah I think Rodgers is the guy.... play for the win in 2012 and draft young players to have options to replace Rodgers as a keeper.

If you are dead-set on keeping a guy with 3 years remaining, I would choose Murray over Charles and Manning.
