Who Should I Keep - WHIR

Postby jizzario » Fri Aug 17, 2012 10:49 am

Keep 10...I know its a lot, more of a rookie or unprotected draft. No PPR, heavy on scoring with low points for yardage. Start 2 QBs, 3 RB, 3WR, 1 TE, 1 K (weekly score uses only best QB, 2 RB, 2WR, TE, K).
QB Aaron Rodgers
Josh Freeman
RB Brandon Jacobs
Adrian Peterson
Arian Foster
Toby Gerhart
WR Santana Moss
Anquan Boldin
Greg Jennings
Pierre Garcon
Victor Cruz
TE Brandon Pettigrew
K Mason Crosby
Will keep Rodgers, Foster, Peterson, Jennings, Cruz as no brainers. Leaning on keeping Freeman, Garcon, Jacobs(TDs are big), and Gerhart. Loved having Crosby last year with kickers always being league top scorers and Rodgers at QB (one of them was scoring for me on a majority of offensive series)
Would love some different opinions/incite, please help, WHIR.

Is there any benefit for keeping less than 10?

Worthy keepers:
Aaron Rodgers
Adrian Peterson
Arian Foster
Toby Gerhart (handcuff, and will get most carries week 1 and week2)
Greg Jennings
Victor Cruz

If you can pick prior to others those are the only 6 i keep.
Otherwise:
Freeman
Boldin
Garcon
Pettigrew

Rodgers (duh)
Foster (duh)
AP (duh)
Gerhart (until I know he is 100%, I'm keeping his backup if I have the room
Jennings (duh)
Cruz (I don't think he's a 1 year wonder, but I don't expect him to break 7 more long TDs)
Garcon (RG3's top WR. You saw how Steve Smith did, think of that but smaller)
Pettigrew
Crosby (If kickers really are the highest scoring players in this system, then I want to keep the one on the best offense)

Then the final spot I would flip between Freeman (should rebound) or Jacobs (should vulture some scores, but he's the RB3 on that team). Since you can start 2 QBs even if only one's score count, I am gonna say Freeman.

Would not benefit from keeping less than 10, it would be unwise. We only keep 15 on roster (can have 3 on IR that don't count against your 15, but they have to be injured or out for that week) and therefore only have a 5 round draft for the new year. Teams just keep 10 and draft in order of finish from prior year to fill rest of roster. I just finished a 3-peat in this league so I will be draft 12th each round. I did trade my 1st round pick so wont be drafting until 24th overall.

Thanks Burrito Boy! Still wondering about Jacobs. TDs are big in our scoring system with yardage not counting for too much. I have kept JAcobs every year since his arrival and used him consistently as a RB3 for the mere fact that he may vulture a TD and outscore one of my others who might run for over 100yds with no TD. I have heard that he might have that same role in SF that he had when Tiki Barber was around NY. I really feel like Freeman will have a bounce back with his new weapons, but I will most likely use Rogers total every week, does that make Freeman a candidate for release in your eyes.
Really feel like I should keep Crosby, sad to say our rules make the kickers too valuable IMO, but with GB scoring so much, I could count on 10+ points every week (winning totals are usually in the 55-60 point range).

Would love to hear more opinons
