Ridley Worth a Keeper Spot?

Postby Philly_05 » Mon Aug 13, 2012 11:42 am

I know it's the Pats and all but do you think he could be worth keeping in a 16 team league with 8 keeper spots available? I'm going into the draft with the 3rd selection so I hope to grab a RB at that spot maybe Martin or if Richardson slips because of the knee. My RB's are a little iffy going into the season. I got Gore who isn't getting any younger and will probably be giving up some goal line touches to Jacobs. He has Hunter and now LaMichael James as competition. My other RB is Mark Ingram who had a less than spectacular rookie season. This is the way my keepers are setup now with Ridley on the outside looking in.

QB- Jay Cutler 255 fp 16 fp/g
RB- Frank Gore 359 fp 22.5 fp/g
RB- Mark Ingram 153 fp 9.6 fp/g
WR- Dwayne Bowe 254 fp 16 fp/g
WR- Dez Bryant 231 fp 14 fp/g
WR- Michael Crabtree 192 fp 12 fp/g
LB- Patrick Willis 242 fp 15 fp/g
DL- Jason Pierre Paul 259 fp 16 fp/g

I think the most logical idea would be to swap out Crabtree and replace him with Ridley if I was going to do that. Or I could decide to keep Sean Lee who was 260 fp 16 fp/g last year over both of them. A
QB- Roethlisberger, Rivers, Foles
RB- McCoy, Lynch, L James, Ivory, F Jackson, D Thomas, Turbin
WR- Julio, Bowe, D Bryant, D Jax, Amendola, Broyles, Gordon, Hill
TE- Celek, D Allen
DEF- Giants
K- Zuerlin
D- D Washington, S Weatherspoon, L Kuechly

Even though it's the Pats, Ridley is supposed to be the starter. I think I'd take the chance on that for a keeper over Crabtree.

Help on mine?

I would keep Ridley, he has more upside then Crabtree and you need a RB more than a WR.

I agree on keeping Ridley over Crabtree. A lot of people are expecting BJGE numbers from 2 years ago, but with more explosiveness.

Also, is Mark Ingram really your best option? I know RB is scarce but I like Sean Lee more than him. Sets you up with 2 great young LBs that you can keep for years. Pierre Thomas is the starter even though Sproles is the guy everybody hears about. Ivory is also expected to make the roster, and we've seen that boy can run. Only guys from that backfield I like are Sproles in a PPR, or Thomas as a RB3.

Yeah unfortunately that's the best I can do for keepers. I took this team over after the start of the league so I have been behind the eight ball from the start. The RB's on the roster are Gore, Ridley, Ingram, Choice and Lewis.

Im in a 12 team keeper (we also keep 8), and Im keeping Ridley. (as my rb4, but still, the upside is there) Somone has to take those BJGE TDs, and right now Ridley is the man.
