I'm taking over the team below, and would like some other opinions on who I should keep. Right now I'm keeping Vick and either Victor Cruz or Andre Johnson. I don't have to keep 2 players, and if I only keep 1 then I'll have a pick before anyone else who has kept 2. I do know there are players who won't be kept that would make it worth my while to only keep 1. The owner of Jimmy Graham and Julio Jones has Rice and Foster, and he's keeping both RBs. Its possbile LeSean McCoy, Fitzy, and/or Adrian Peterson will be available, that owner has Newton on his squad as well. The below is just a small list of guys that to me would be worth only keeping one player. As I wrote this, and added players to the list, the more I'm inclined to keep only one, which to me would be Vick. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
Current Roster: Michael Vick, Phi Mark Sanchez, NYJ Ryan Fitzpatrick, Buf LeGarrette Blount, TB Ahmad Bradshaw, NYG Reggie Bush, Mia Mark Ingram, NO Victor Cruz, NYG ??? Andre Johnson, Hou??? David Nelson, Buf Michael Crabtree, SF Santana Moss, Wsh Jason Witten, Dal Tony Gonzalez, Atl Cowboys D/ST D/ST Nick Novak, SD K Jets D/ST
Some guys I know will be available if I only keep 1: Jimmy Graham Julio Jones
Possible guys: McCoy/Fitzy/Adrian Peterson (all on same team) DeMarco Murray Roddy White Hakeem Nicks Greg Jennings Percy Harvin Brees/Gronk/McFadden (all on same team)
I agree with your instinct to only keep one. Here is why: Jimmy Graham.
Cruz, Johnson, and all the rest are certainly quality, but there are only three tight ends that are sure to give the same stats as an RB1, and Graham is one of them. He is the difference maker, and you will be able to get at leat one tier 2 WR - if not 2 - in the draft (Tier 1 is Calvin Johnson, only).
first choice keep 0 - and take two picks before others....if your taking the team over they should allow...as you are getting the best of everyone else's castoffs....
Graham and AP (still like him better than t rich)
If you have to keep one....then i would keep andre......vick is in the big grooup of QB's and td passes have never been his strong suit......he's only thrown for 20 td's twice in his career (20 and 21), Lots of Qb's can do that.....not worthy of a #1 choice......
