Keeper Choice - Welker (5th) or Graham (8th)

Postby Tosabigdog » Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:28 am

10 team PPR League - lose the round your keeper is in (16 rounds)
Start 1QB, 2 RBs, 2 WRs, 1 Flex, K, Def

Need to decide between Welker or Graham. Not sure what position I'm drafting in yet. Leaning toward Graham but I'm concerned with what's happening in NO although there will be fewer choices for Brees to go to.

I think Graham at 8 is great value. Does the pick keep going up until you can't keep him anymore or do you have him at 8th round value for the life of the league? If you keep him at 8th round value for the duration it's a easy selection.

help on mine?

Graham for an 8th round pick is the better value.

Thanks for the quick response. Can't keep the same player that you kept last year.

Welker is good value in 5th, but I think Graham in the 8th is the better option. NE is going to have a lot of options to pass it to. I think on the field NO will be fine. Brees will keep them focused, he has solid vetern leadership. Go with Graham.

I go Jimmy Graham in the 8th. I think if they were the same round I'd probably go Graham, so getting him 3 rounds later makes it a given.

Agree here. Graham is to Brees as Welker is to Brady, where they are the go-to guys for those elite QBs. Even though Welker will be his go-to guy, I think he will go-to him a bit less this year.

I love me some Golden Grahams, Welker is going to have a tough season with Lloyd there.
