Keep RB over QB? WHIR

Postby hbs » Tue Jun 05, 2012 2:28 pm

I can keep two of these three in a 10 team, PPR Redraft, 1QB 2RB 2WR 1Flex (2 round penalty on last years draft round)

Gronk in the 12th round
Newton in the 11th round
Lynch in the 7th round

Gronk is a definite, but I'm not sure if I should take Newton over Lynch due to the lack of great RBs out there.

If I go Gronk/Lynch I could possibly draft RB/WR/QB or RB/QB/WR, or RB/RB/??

If I go Gronk/Newton I would most likely have to go RB/RB/WR.

All three are great options. If I have to throw one back, it's Cam. I think QB is deep and it's easier to replace the QB production than a bellcow RB production.

I would keep Cam Newton. I think his upside is greater and a top 5 QB is now very valuable. Also you only have to give up a 11th round pick compared to a 7th which is bonus.

Not sure what the depth of players in your league is, so I'm not sure what kind of mid-round QB you'll have available, but I'd lean towards Lynch because I think the value of the pick-for-player is just too high.

Agreed. That is great value for Newton, and you need a elite QB these days.

I would keep Gronk and Cam. the value is just too good to pass up. Lynch makes me nervous this year. He had a heavy workload last year and he got paid. I am afraid he might drop like Shaun Alexander and CJ1K, something just seems to happen to RB's once they get paid.

I'm gonna have to disagree, I think I'd keep Gronk and Lynch. Lynch does have a chance to bust, but probably not anymore than Cam has of hitting a bit of a sophomore slump. Obviously Cam's original draft position is a factor here but the RB position is just so thin I think it's necessary to lock down a RB that's consistently getting a lot of carries.

If you know your draft spot and have a chance to get Lynch, or a like RB in round 1, I'd keep Cam. Otherwise I think you have to hold onto the RB that doesn't share carries.
