Draft Strategy Opinions WHIR

Postby pgnd17 » Sat Aug 11, 2012 12:41 pm

Ok I am sitting 5th in a 10 team PPR KEEPER league
I am keepering MJD Andre Johnson and AJ Green

Players that will not be on a roster when the draft starts

I have two options

1. Take my draft slot as is and probably end up with a Sproles/Bradshaw type combo in the first two rounds (to go along with MJD AJ and AJG)

2. Or the guy that has pick 2 said he'd take MJD for his pick. Which would leave me with 3 picks in the first two rounds and I go potentially end up with a Murray, Sproles, Colston type combo to add to AJ and AJG.

RB
Ryan Matthews
DeMarco Murray
Trent Richardson
Darren Sproles
Steven Jackson
Matt Forte
Fred Jackson
Doug Martin
Michael Turner
Ahmad Bradshaw

WR
Jordy Nelson
Roddy White
Dez Bryant
Mike Wallace
Marques Colston
Percy Harvin
Brandon Lloyd

Basically I'm asking would you give up MJD at this point for two of the top five backs left (excluding TRich since pick 1 has already said that's who he is taking)?

Also anyone care to rank the guys left in a PPR? maybe top 10 of what is listed here. THANKS!

I would probably trade MJD for the #2. In our league MJD got traded for middle round rookie draft picks. I would target Matt Forte as the best PPR RB available at #2. Then at #5 I would look at Fred Jackson or Doug Martin. I would pass on Sproles because he would be the same bye week as Forte. Who would you replace as a keeper for trading MJD?

help on mine?

I would essentially be keeping MJD then trading for the player I tell the #2 drafter to take for me.

If there is no resolution to MJDs holdout by draft day, then I'd make that trade. Forte would be a great pick for ppr.

Even if he does get in by the start of the season. History tells us that he won't be very good as a RB holding out. Being able to swap him out for Forte with a improved passing game in Chicago would be a steal imo.

I would hang on to MJD. As a Bears fan Forte will not be getting many goaline carries. First their offensive line is terrible. 2nd- M Bush was signed and will vulture tds if they get down to the goaline. Please help with my link below.
