KEEP OR SWEEP?

Postby yualreadyknow » Sun Jul 29, 2012 3:07 pm

Our keeper league is having the draft after we have to choose the keepers. Weird to me but I have to pick TEN (including a rookie i.e. player who was a rookie last year = Ponder in this case)

Here is my roster and I marked the nine that I am pretty certain I am going to retain. IN YOUR OPINION, who is the last person that I should hang onto? It's coming down to a few guys but I have a very short time to decide. Barring any other trades, this is my squad. Thank you!


Matt Ryan (K)
Vincent Jackson (K)
Steve Smith (K)
Kenny Britt (K)
LeSean McCoy (K)
Darren McFadden (K)
Fred Davis (K)
Steven Jackson (K)
Alex Henery
New York DEF

Nate Burleson
Devery Henderson
Scott Chandler
Brandon Jacobs
Kyle Orton
Benjamin Watson
Christian Ponder (K)
Isaac Redman
Donald Brown
San Diego DEF

Henderson or Redman, huh? I was definitely thinking one of those guys. Thank you, my friend.

I go with Redman or Donald Brown. Brown is the safe pick and Redman is the high-upside-maybe he gets the job permanently pick. Since you already got 3 good starting RBs I'd roll the dice on Redman.

Those are the two RBs I was definitely considering. I know that we are expecting to morph into a dynasty league at some point. That played into my decision as well. I can't pick Scott Chandler over these two guys but I am intrigued by his potential. A buddy here offered Henderson as an option but I am not sure if I can go that way yet.

I'm not really high on Henderson as everyone else is. I think he'll see a bump in production, like the 700 yards or so you'd get from Meachem in NO, but I expect someone from Toon, Arrington, or Morgan to rotate and cancel him out. Henderson has never looked like anything more than a situational deep threat to me.

I know for sure he has a slight increase in production heading his way. He will be on the field prob as much as Colston will be. He should get plenty of looks but I know how their offense works. Toon, Moore, and others will be worked in.

Devery is only in the running if the other guys are traded and I don't see that one.

I'd go with Redman. Atleast for the early goings he looks in line to get 15 touches a game and has the most value on the list.

I hear that. I would think that Brown will get way more as the Colts Numero Uno. Their GM is pushing for him to get the lion's share of the carries. On one hand, I hear Carter is not where they want him to be. Then I hear Ballard, Carter, and Mewelde Moore (mind you) will push Brown and Moore will see some play on passing downs. Kind of confusing. But if Brown is healthy, I don't see how he doesn't surpass his career high of 645/4.8 yds per.

I'd go with Redman. With an improved O line I think he does very good in the 6 weeks, and that could land him the starting job.

I don't like WRs outside of Colston and Graham in NO, and I don't trust Brown.
