Julio Jones or Brandon Lloyd? Keepers due in 2 days.

Postby Papa Deuce » Mon Aug 27, 2012 10:11 pm

This league has crazy scoring... it has PPR, scoring based on distance, total yards, points per 25 yards, and a bunch of other ways. QBs can score 100 points on a really good week... and teams that win usually score about 160 points a week.

Every team MUST keep 4 players. 10 team league.

Each team at the end of the draft will have:

4 QBs
6 RB
6WR
2 TE
2K
2 Def

Each week we will play:

1 QB
2 RB
3 WR
1 TE
1K
1D

Non head to head. Total points..... all Old School, LOL

So I plan to keep

Aaron Rodgers
Calvin Johnson
Adrian Peterson
and either Julio Jones or Brandon Lloyd.

Plus, I hope to have Doug Martin available for my 1st pick at 9th. Or Trent Richardson if he's there, but I doubt he will be. This league doesn't have many people who draft rookies in the 1st 2 rounds, but I do; that is how I got Peterson.


Who to keep?

BTW, I also could keep Eric Decker, but IMO, he would be available for at least 3 rounds if I didn't keep him.

I would definitely keep Julio Jones over Lloyd.

To make sure I'm reading this right about the format, ALL 10 teams MUST have 4 QBs, 6 RBs 6 WRs at the end of the draft?

So then the top 40 QBs (of 32 teams), 60 RBs (again, only 32 teams!!) and 60 WRs (not as bad, I usually carry 5-6 WRs on all rosters anyways) will be gone? That really sucks for the QBs and RBs.

That is correct on the numbers. So, yes, a few backup QBs do get drafted, but unless you are an idiot as an owner, you at least have 2 decent QBs. I can tell you right now, Nick Foles will be drafted as the backup to Vick.

I agree that JJ is a better player, but he has the awesome Roddy White already there, and honestly, I think Matt Ryan is a mediocre QB. And the Pats don't really have a deep threat, except Lloyd.

Julio all the way! Lloyd will be sharing a lot more targets in NE and he is in a new system. Could Lloyd be a solid deep threat? Of course he can but you have already seen what Julio did last year. ;-)

Go Julio.

I'd take JJ.

Lloyd is going to stretch the field but he's sharing with Welker, Hernandez and Gronk and I doubt he's getting much redzone action.
