So, here's my situation. I won my fantasy keeper league for the first time in 11 seasons but now I have an utter glut of talent at WR and I can only keep two or three of them.
When you look at my roster a few things will jump out at you so let me save you some time. Yes, I know my kicker is retiring. Yes, Darren Sproles is a puzzling choice when Marshawn Lynch is on my roster (not shown) but our league is PPR and 20APY per point. LeSean and Darren are designed for this league, it's kind of terrifying. I drafted Kenny Britt and he was a manimal until he got hurt. I dragged his ass with me so some chump in our league couldn't pick him up and then keep him for free. Gonna cost you a pick, pal!
Here are my keepers:
QB: Drew Brees WR: WR: RB: LeSean McCoy RB: Darren Sproles TE: Tony Gonzalez K: John Kasay DEF: San Francisco FLEX:
WRs on Roster: Marques Colston Steve Smith (Carolina) Jordy Nelson Victor Cruz Dez Bryant DeSean Jackson - X Kenny Britt - X
WHAT THE HELL DO I DO?! I plan on keeping 3 of them. I absolutely adore Colston, he has been a pillar of Dan's Ninjas for what seems like his entire career. I sure did love starting him as a TE his entire rookie season, thanks Yahoo! The only real guys not listed here with potential keeper status are Marshawn (not happening) and Tony Romo (and I can draft his replacement way easier than I can any of these wideouts.)
I don't remember what the X's are for but I think those were two guys I decided not to keep. I guess with this many football players a lot will come down to which 1 or 2 get injured next season and whether I dodge that bullet or not.
I get sick looking at it... Thank god I don't have to submit keepers until August. Isn't it awful that I'm crossing my finger for someone to go ACL on me?
Nice squad If its my team, Im keeping Jordy, Cruz and Dez. Colston is aging, lots of knee operations and all of the ?'s this year that come along with the Saints. Smitty I love, stole him last year in like the 9th. But age and all of the rushing td's that the team will score leaves him out. These aren't the biggest concerns I know, but they are enough to make me lean towards the other 3 that are entering their prime. Good luck.

sucks you can't keep more, but this is what i would do also.

Love that line. In all my keeper leagues I have this type of problem, not to the magnitude of having so many good WRs, but I always keep an open ear to any news of major injuries. You never really want someone to suffer such a devastating injury, but it makes the decision a hell of a lot easier! haha. I would probably keep Cruz, Nelson, and Dez. I been waiting for 2 years for Dez to break out, if he doesn't this year I'd be pissed. Yeah Britt was a total monster 2 years ago, and pre-injury last year. If he has a good camp and reports are that he's back to full strength and all that, then I'd go with him over Dez. We know how good Kenny can be, we've seen it. Dez is all speculation with flashes of brilliance. As a cowboys fan, I trust Britt more than Dez.

This. Offer Lynch and their pick of your WRs for an elite WR.
If you can't make a deal, I would keep Smith, Nelson, and Cruz. I love Colston and wouldn't blame you for picking him over Smith, but I like Smith a little more. I'm not on the Dez bandwagon... maybe he ends up finally getting it this year, but his inconsistent play and off-the-field incidents keep me passing on the guy.
