Keeper Conundrum (scratching my head)

Postby spread eagles » Sat Aug 11, 2012 7:45 pm

A brief overview of the league:
You can keep two from each draft class, but there are contract lengths (1st rd.-2 seasons, 2-5th rd.-3 years, after 6 rd-4 years).

My Prior to 2011 Draft Keepers:

Romo (3rd rd.)
M. Williams (6th rd.)---may throw him back
M. Austin (8th rd.)

Possible keepers:

Beanie Wells (4th rd.)
A. Hernandez (10th rd.)
B. Tate (12th rd.)

I'm locked in at Hernandez, and am leaning towards Tate because I would be able to draft in the 4th with not keeping Beanie, maybe someone like Mark Ingram would be available in the 4th. That is how diluted the first 5 rds are, then it gets back to being normal.

What would you do?

I would go with Tate and Hernandez. Wells is the 4th round is not great value.

Yea, but beanie would be drafted in the second rd if thrown back. keep in mind about 50 players have been kept.

If I stick with hernandez and tate to go with romo, austin my team would possibly look something like this based on mapping out everyone's keepers and me drafting in rd. 1, rd.2 and rd 4

Romo
B. Tate
S. Jackson (1st rd)
Austin
(maybe jennings or fitz)
Hernandez

Maybe Ingram, CJ spiller, meachem in the 4th,

I would go with Hernandez and Tate, I just don't trust Beanie Wells would rather have Ingram you could also go after Richardson.

I think I would go with Hernandez and lean towards Wells. Tough choice though.

Help on mine?

I would go with Hernandez and Tate. You can't trust Beanie with all of his injurys.

Just Hernandez and Tate, IMO. But if you're sure Beanie is worth a 2nd rounder (I doubt it), put together a full list of the players you expect to be kept, and see who's left. I'm sure he wouldn't be worth a 4th rounder.

I've done the draft grid and only 6 starting RBs will be on the board to start the draft. I do believe I'm going with Tate unless someone can convince me otherwise.

I'd go with Hernandez and Tate as well. Wells may go in the 2nd round with your setting, but Tate would probably go in the 4th, 5th at the latest. So you get much better value here.
