First Pick in a Keeper League?

Postby MLJ678 » Thu Aug 16, 2012 9:02 pm

I've asked for advice here before about which keepers to select, and it helped immensely. ;-D So here I am again! I selected my four keepers: Drew Brees, DeMarco Murray, AJ Green and Jimmy Graham. I want to draft a running back with my first pick, but I can't decide who to pick. I have the the fifth pick, and these are the best remaining options:

Ahmad Bradshaw
Frank Gore
Michael Turner
Reggie Bush
Trent Richardson
Doug Martin

Since I have the fifth pick, at least one of these guys will be available when I'm up. If Bradshaw is there, I'm taking him, but I'm betting he will not be. I'm guessing Richardson will not be there either, but with his recent knee issues, who knows. Right now I'm thinking of drafting Martin for his keeper value and then picking up Blount as a handcuff in a later round.

Thanks in advance for the feedback everybody!

Glad to hear that you got good advice the 1st time around, this place is pretty good for that.

For this one, I'm not overly excited about these options, who are the best 5 available regardless of position for a point of reference?

If you are set on RB, I would got Martin then Rich (surgeries are a concern), no way I would touch the others here
