Keep Newton (5th) or R Rice (1st)

Postby palacebrawlII » Mon Jul 30, 2012 9:51 am

Looking for opinions on who to keep for my upcoming draft. 10 Team, PPR. The league is pretty standard but there are a few differences below.

1 pt - PPR
Bonus points for going over 100/150/200 rush/rec and 300/400/500 passing
6 pts per passing td
-2 for INT's

I will have the 6th draft choice so I would likely be looking at MJD/CJ24/Fitz/Welker with my 1st round pick if I keep Newton.

If I keep Rice, then I would elect to pick 10th (have ability to move down if I want) so my 2nd round pick would be from a similar set of players (give or take).

My hangup is that with 6 pts per passing TD, Newton isn't as valuable in our league compared to a league where passing TD's are only 4.

hypothetically, would I rather have Rice and Vick/Romo/Manning or Newton and MJD/CJ24/Fitz/Welker?

From a value perspective, I keep telling myself that Newton is the right choice but I'm on the wrong side of the top tier of first round players so I'm tempted to keep Rice.

Thanks - WHIR

I'd rather have Rice and Vick/Romo. Newton is a great value in the 5th but he's not the type of QB I would sacrifice at RB for.

I would keep Newton. I like the value in the 5th round and you still can get a top 10 RB in the 1st round.

Keep Rice, guaranteed stud. Unless your QB is Rodgers I wouldnt keep a QB over Rice.

I'm with 11stever11. Keeping Newton and the player you draft in the 1st will give you a better combo than Rice and whoever you draft in the 5th

If my choices are MJD and Newton or Rice and Romo, I'm going to take the second pair in a 10 team PPR league.
