Drafting Question

Postby dajonx » Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:14 am

Non-PPR, Keeper League
Format: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR/RB, TE, K, DEF

I am planning on keeping Arian Foster. Not sure who to pick after. I think these players will be available to me in the second round:

Drew Brees
Chris Johnson
Darren McFadden
DeMarco Murray
Matt Forte
MJD
Jamaal Charles
Marshawn Lynch
AP
Any WR excluding Calvin Johnson
Jimmy Graham

I've read that WR/TE is pretty deep this year, so I should focus more on QB/RB.

Thanks!

I would go either Chris Johnson, or Drew Brees. I prefer Brees slightly because there is less risk involved and you already have Foster.

Lots of choices there. I'd wait for Stafford in round 3 or 4 and pass on Brees. That leaves a choice of these 3

1. CJ2K (see a nice bounceback season for him)
2. DMC (oh if he could only stay healthy)
3. Graham (he's a beast)

I'd go Graham here because that would give you one of the elite 2 TE's.

Thank you for your input!

I should've given more information since it is a 8-Team Keeper League. The following people are who I think will be kept:
Cam Newton
Tom Brady/Ryan Mathews
Aaron Rodgers
Calvin Johnson/Rob Gronkowski
LeSean McCoy
Matthew Stafford/Julio Jones
Arian Foster

I am leaning towards Brees since QB play last year absolutely killed me (Schaub). Obviously, I'm not sure who will be available in the second round, but I'm thinking I would rank them as:
Brees
CJ
DMC
Murray

RB is the weakest position this year, so i would lock up another....

Me I take AP - biggest upside - love the idea of Foster and AP.....will tie up a couple roster spots with handcuffs, so hopefully you have lots of Roster spots....

No to CJ2 - Got paid, he's done....
DMAC - has never had 200 carries in the NFL.......no way no how....

If only 8 teams, one of those RB's will be there round 2...so then i could argue Brees or Graham......QB is deeper than TE...so I might go TE....

Non-PPR, I'd be all over Brees in the second. Then looking at AP or CJ (I'm leaning toward CJ, I think he might have something to prove after all the bs that's been talked about him).

That said, if Fitzgerald is available in the second round, I would really have a hard time passing him up. I don't really even care about the QB situation, he's that good imo.

Here's an update after talking to another player.

We believe that the following players will be off the board:
Keepers:
Cam Newton
Tom Brady
Aaron Rodgers
Rob Gronkowski
LeSean McCoy
Drew Brees
Matthew Stafford
Arian Foster (me)

Drafted:
Ray Rice
Tom Brady
Calvin Johnson
Chris Johnson
Darren McFadden

I'm really torn between Jimmy Graham, Larry Fitzgerald, and Matt Forte (even with Bush stealing carries). I'm kinda leery on Jamaal Charles, MJD (contract), and Marshawn Lynch. Again, this is an 8-team, non-PPR, one Keeper league. I was originally thinking of drafting RB(keeper), RB, QB, WR, TE, WR, WR, then fill-ins.

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!
