First Time Keeper: Who should be my third Keeper

Postby colveraki » Tue Aug 21, 2012 1:01 pm

I can keep any three players from last year's roster. I am already sold on keeping Arian Foster and Cam Newton, but I am having difficulty on deciding on the third. My roster is below. Currently I am thinking of Jordy Nelson or DeMarco Murray.
This is a ten team Yahoo League.

Cam Newton (Car - QB)
Jordy Nelson (GB - WR)
Miles Austin (Dal - WR)
Vincent Jackson (TB - WR)
Arian Foster (Hou - RB)
Reggie Bush (Mia - RB)
Aaron Hernandez (NE - TE)
Laurent Robinson (Jac - WR)
Jeremy Maclin (Phi - WR)
DeMarco Murray (Dal - RB)
Matt Forte (Chi - RB)
Andy Dalton (Cin - QB)
Mark Ingram (NO - RB)
Tim Tebow (NYJ - QB)
Kevin Smith (Det - RB)
Michael Crabtree (SF - WR)
John Kasay (NO - K)

How many do you start? Is it ppr? These make a huge difference. I would be enticed to go Foster, Murray and Forte if you can start 3 RBs.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

Good point. This is a non-PPR league. Rushing/receiving yards are 20 yards per point. TD are worth 6 points. fumbles lost equal -2points
Can start:
1QB
3WR
2RB
1TE
1RB/TE Flex
1K
3IDP

hate to hash things out, but 1 question. with this being a keeper league (10 team) walking away with my starting QB and two very capable RBs sounds very good. How hard though will it be to replenish my Wide Receiver corps? I know Nelson will not have the year he had last year, but you think it will be hard to replace him by keeping two RBs instead of just one?

It should, in theory, be very easy. You can find WR2s in as deep as the 6th round in most leagues, although I know in keeper leagues they might be the most scarce. This is arguably one of the deepest years for WRs, I wouldn't worry about it.

I would also go with Cam, Foster, then either Murray or Forte. Whichever of the two you prefer.
