Pick 1 keeper from list WHIR

Postby prince_45243 » Wed Aug 01, 2012 11:10 am

6 per td, 1 per 10 yards, -2 per turnover

V. Jackson
Beanie Wells
J. Starks

I feel like VJax is over-rated in most leagues. He's not with Rivers anymore and Freeman isn't exactly an upgrade.
Starks finally gets to be RB1 for a championship team. I think he's a highrisk/high reward potential. If GB goes more balanced with ball control this year. But Beanie seems the most sensible keeper despite his particular issues.

I think you have to go with the High Risk High Reward guy here in Starks.

B.Wells has competition too in last years camp sensation (R.Williams) and Jackson has been labeled as a bust in almost every publication I have seen.

Tough call. I'd have to run with Starks. He's the lead running back in a high octane offense. He certainly hasn't met expectations, but I still think he's a better option than Wells, who is sure to lose carries to Ryan Williams. I just don't trust V-Jax without Rivers throwing him the ball. I'll believe Josh Freeman's abilities when I start seeing them come to fruition.

Freeman made Mike Williams a stud in 2010. I think Vincent Jackson will be fine. The rest of the offense will suffer, but he'll still get his numbers. It's not like Freeman is Blaine Gabbert all of a sudden.

I would keep Starks. Never have liked VJax and Wells gets hurt too often

I say Starks.
At the end of the year VJ will probably have great numbers, but what I hate about him is the inconsistency he would have with a stud like RIvers. I think his overall stats will be fine, but I don't see Freeman increasing his consistency.
