Help choose my keepers for 2012.

Postby pgnd17 » Mon Jul 02, 2012 2:53 pm

I need to choose keepers for the 2012 season

10 team--PPR--3 player keeper league (no limit on amount of time you can keep a player.)

I am having trouble deciding between 2 out of 3 receivers...

I have MJD and am undoubtedly keeping him.

So my two spots left are reserved for 2 of these 3 receivers...

Andre Johnson (aging and his body is breaking down, but he's top 3 when healthy.)
Mike Wallace (Young, explosive, new coordinator in Haley should help, but inconsistent all or nothing type player)
AJ Green (Incredibly talented and will have an entire camp this year, but doesn't exactly have keeper numbers at this point.)

What do you think? Thanks

AJ Green and Mike Wallace are easy choices. AJ Green is going to be a dominant force in this league for many, many years AND he's only going to improve.

Mike Wallace is already a force, and he's young (though his future is a bit undecided).

Andre Johnson is good, but he's getting too old to sit on in a keeper format, especially with your other options.

If i can keep them indefinitely AJ Green is my #1 keeper on your roster. I agree on MJD as well. The last spot is personal preference to me. I'd go Wallace because I think Houston is moving away passing game and AJ can't stay healthy, but it is truly a coin flip to me.

Thanks for the input.

The ability to keep them indefinitely is making me lean towards Wallace and Green. Especially because, as you said, Foster and Tate are starting to be the focal point of the Texans offense.

At some point in your draft, I'd gladly re-draft Andre, based on talent alone, but you're keeping two of the top, young WRs: AJ Green and Mike Wallace. Especially if there's no limit or restrictions to how long you keep a player.

I have the 5th pick, but he'll probably be gone by then considering 30 players plus 4 in the re-draft will be gone in front of me. Players that will not be kept include Forte, Roddy White, Andre J, Harvin, Marshall, Colston, Fred and Steven Jackson, Helu, Bradshaw, Nelson, Lynch, Julio J, Lynch.

I'm guessing it will go Roddy, AJ, to start. Who should I target of those remaining? Anyone care to rank those guys in a ppr keeper?

Forte, Lynch, Julio Jones. Your need for RB, and the availability for those two gives them the edge over Julio

I'd keep Green and Wallace with MJD.

For the draft, I would look at Lynch, Forte, Jones, SJax and Harvin probably in that order. I'd imagine White, Jones and AJ being gone by the time you picked, Havin, Forte could be gone too based on the kept players of the teams picking before you. You should look at getting one of the RBs to have a more even roster, but don't overvalue just to pick for need. I never like to have RBs that holdout, they hardly ever produce as expected, especially early in the season. FOr that reason I would be wary of Forte, they also brought in a bunch of new weapons, meaning less carries/targets to go for him.
