Quick vote! Keeper question, WHIR!

Postby enasnidx » Mon Aug 27, 2012 7:04 pm

I'm in a 10 person PPR keeper league. Im drafting from the 8th spot (snake). I chose to keep DeMarco Murray from my roster last year (in exchange for a 11th round pick). None of the top 15 picks (based on ADP) are being kept before their relative draft position. Meaning, I should have my pick of either a semi-elite RB or QB at the 8 spot and at the 13 in round 2. Do I take a strong RB (CJ2K/Forte/Run DMC) in the first round and hope that Brady/Brees falls to me in the 2nd? Or should I try to solidify a stud QB in the first since I already have Murray locked up, and settle for a decent RB (Charles/Lynch/Jackson/etc.) in the second?

If you want Brady or Brees you will have to take one with the 8th pick (if they fall to you). I cant see one making it back to you in the 2nd round.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

IMO, grab Brady there.
I just hope my fantasy team is better than the Chargers this year.

I was able to get McFadden at the 8th spot and Brees fell to me in the second round. It was a little risky, but totally paid off. Check out my line up and let me know what you think:
10 team, PPR keeper league
QB: Drew Brees, Ben Roethlisberger
RB: Darren McFadden, DeMarco Murray, Trent Richardson, Ahmad Bradshaw, Donald Brown, David Wilson
WR: Julio Jones, Miles Austin, Jeremy Maclin, Antonio Brown
TE: Jermaine Gresham, Greg Olsen
PK: Alex Henery
TD: New York Giants

I gave up strength at TE and WR for some solid RB depth. I will NOT be plagued with RB injury again this year! If I need to, I figure I can always trade for a stud WR if my RB crew holds out because some of the teams in my league are going to be seriously hurting come bye weeks...

I would take Brady/Brees with your 8th pick, look to see if DMC/Forte is still available coming back around.
