Need to choose first round in keeper league

Postby birdy76 » Wed Aug 29, 2012 6:27 am

I have as keepers

QB Matt Ryan
RB Jamaal Charles
WR Julio Jones
TE Jason Witten
WR Brandon Marshall

Since it's keeper...standard scoring, I have the following that I am interested in....what would you do?

Trent Richardson
Fred Jackson
Mike Wallace

Three pretty good options. I would rank them as such...
Fred Jackson - in 10 weeks before his injury in '11, he had 6-100 yd games and 6 TDs. So far this preseason he's proven he still has young legs.
Trent Richardson - The Browns suck. Although, that didn't stop Hillis from becoming a fantasy stud in '10 out of nowhere - their offensive line is just good enough. This year the Browns are starting a rookie QB in Weeden, which means they'll rely heavily on their running game.
Mike Wallace - Antonio Brown, Emmanuel Sanders, Jericho Cotchery, Heath Miller...too many great options. Wallace is the number 1 but, the other options will take plenty of touches away from him.

You said exactly what I was thinking....I am just wondering since it's a keeper league I plan to stay with....if Trent may be a better long term option. I am leaning towards Jackson in all this....but Richardson may end up being a beast.

If you're looking for long-term keeper, I guess Richardson won't be ruined enough by the Browns eternal doormat status...so, I might take him over Jackson.

Good luck!
