Who to Keep McCoy or Brees??

Postby ooRAIXoo » Fri Aug 17, 2012 12:43 pm

Hello, I'm new here and was hoping to find some help. I've been tossing this decision around in my head all offseason and can't decide on who the better option will be. My league has two keeper's but one is from the first 6 rounds of last years draft and the other is from rounds 7 and later. Undrafted players are considered last round picks. I picked up TE Jimmy Graham undrafted last year and seems a no brainer to keep him as my 7th and later round pick. I have some studs in that bracket too.

Brees vs. McCoy is my bane. Last year Bree's scored 405.64pts for me and McCoy had 280.40pts. I loved the Brees to Graham combo last year, but don't know how the whole Bounty scandal will affect them. Will Brees have a little more control of the team with Sean Payton out and boost his numbers or will it hurt his production?? On the other hand McCoy is a stud and it's so hard for me to let him go too. I have a feeling that Vick will have more control this year and will be throwing and running the ball himself and McCoys numbers will decline.. IDK f@#k me. Please a little Help!!

I lose first rd pick keeping Lesean McCoy and second round pick with keeping Brees.

My league is (2) 6 team divisions, no PPR.. Passing TD's = 4 points and Rushing TD's = 6 points

FYI my players to choose from are:

(1) from this list:
Lesean McCoy RB
Drew Brees QB
Brandon Lloyd WR
Peyton Hillis RB

(1) from this list:
Jimmy Graham TE
Marshawn Lynch RB
DeMarco Murray RB
Jordy Nelson WR

Any input will be greatly appreciated!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!

McCoy battling for backup job. Brees is a no brainer.

I have no idea what this means. McCoy is not a starter? Confused......

That said, it's a tough decision. It would certainly help to know where you draft, and who else will be available. Simply b/c that way you know what the drop off is to the next guy.

As it stands, I would probably keep Brees. But like I said, that would hinge upon who might be available when you draft.

Maybe he thinks it's Colt McCoy..

Will Brees and McCoy both cost you a first rounder either way?

I like keeping Graham/McCoy. Or if you want to keep Brees, I think I would then take Murray. He's a young RB who has great upside.

Unless the penalty for keeping McCoy is greater, he is my keeper. I'd keep him over everybody but Foster and Rice if the penalty is the same

Thanks! Sorry I forgot to mention..

I lose first rd pick keeping Lesean McCoy and second round pick with keeping Brees. We don't determine draft order until day before draft.. Sucks but that's how it is..
