Vick and _____? Need Draft help

Postby bearsfan012512 » Thu Jul 26, 2012 1:04 pm

Who should I draft with Vick as my keeper with this setup and scoring system?

1 Keeper league I am keeping Vick and have the 1st pick of the draft.

I need two different picks ready depending on whether another guy keeps MJD or Newton.

From what I can tell these are the players that will be kept by other teams:
Arian Foster
Ray Rice
LeSean McCoy
Aaron Rodgers
MJD (or now maybe Newton)
Tom Brady
Drew Brees
Matt Stafford
Jimmy Graham

Lineup is 2QB 3RB 3WR 1TE 1K and 2 DEF.


Passing Yards:1 point per 20 yards
Passing Touchdowns:6 points
Interceptions Thrown:-3 points
300-399 Passing Yards Bonus:8 points
400+ Passing Yards Bonus:4 points
40+ Passing Yard TD Bonus:5 points
50+ Passing Yards TD Bonus:3 points
Rushing Yards:1 point per 10 yards
Rushing Touchdowns:12 points
40+ Rushing Yard TD Bonus:5 points
50+ Rushing Yard TD Bonus:5 points
100-199 Rushing Yards Bonus:9 points
200+ Rushing Yards Bonus:5 points
Receptions:1 point
Receiving Yards:1 point per 10 yards
Receiving Touchdowns:12 points
40+ Receiving Yard TD Bonus:5 points
50+ Receiving Yard TD Bonus:5 points
100-199 Receiving Yards Bonus:9 points
200+ Receiving Yards Bonus:5 points
Fumbles Lost:-3 points
2-Point Conversions:3 points

My ideas are Cam Newton or Chris Johnson but both worry me quite a bit. Plus now with the MJD drama I am worried that the guy with MJD and Newton last year will now keep Newton so I need to have a pick ready for either of those scenarios. I think i need someone to help counteract Vick's variability and I'm not sure who would be able to do that.

Would help if you listed your entire roster. That said...

If you can keep 1 player per position, I would keep Newton over Vick.

If you can keep 2 players at the same position in a 2 QB league, I would keep both Newton and Vick.

After a re-read, it doesn't look like you havfe Newton on your roster?

So if the question is Vick + CJ or MJD... I would wait and see what plays out with MJD's contract before deciding anything. Personally, in a redraft, I would take CJ over MJD.

Yea as of now my roster consists of Vick so I did list my whole roster. The rest is up in the air. So you are saying if the other guy keeps Newton over MJD I should draft CJ?

Do you have the 1st pick?

If so, I'd take Mathews (if he's not kept).

2 QB league, I would imagine they go pretty fast as well, Romo/Rivers/Eli or maybe even Ryan isn't a bad 1st pick either

Depending on what keeping a guy costs you, Trent Richardson isn't totally crazy if you're a gambling man, would be nice to have him for his entire career.
