Postby madtowndvds » Sun Sep 02, 2012 9:29 am

10 player PPR league and player costs you last years draft position.
Do I keep:

Gronk costing me a 7th
Ksmith costing me a 8th

I am picking from the 4th spot in round 1

I will help in return.

I would keep Gronk and Forte. Smith has to much injury risk.

Just don't go K. Smith. While I believe him to be a solid RB2, he might only be relevant until week 3.
Gronk is an elite TE, but will not repeat last years numbers. Consider the round he is costing you, is he worth it to you?
Forte along with other ACL/MCL injured athlete's never really come back 100% the first season after an injury such as that, but this is Forte we're talking about. His work ethic and drive to be on the field is enough to make me think he (along with Peterson) would be excellent RB picks, given that the only sure-fire RB's this season are shaping up to be McCoy, Rice and Foster.

These are just my opinions, but I hoped they helped.

I can only keep 1 player. So with smith out it comes down to value at postion.
Acccording to my cheet sheet Forte is the 5th best player and 4 best RB and will cost me a 4th round pick.
Gronk is the 35th best player and 2nd TE behind Graham.
Which is the better value knowing that I draft from the 4th position...?

I myself would keep Forte, but your TE's are looking pretty slim. Witten has a spleen injury which could get pretty bad pretty quick. Although he's a tough player, a spleen injury could ruin his season so there's that to ponder. RB's are a mess this year however, and finding a good one should take precedence over a TE. Tough call friend. I myself would take Forte and wait for a TE to have a breakout year. Gronk will be good, but with Hernandez and the addition of Lloyd, he won't come close to last years totals.

First forte never tore his acl, he strained his mcl. Which if an acl is a ten on the scale, a strained mcl is a two.

Second I would keep forte and gronk but don't expect last years numbers from gronk.

I would keep Gronk. Forte is a maybe but since they have Bush now I think Gronk edges him out a lil. Smith I wouldnt even consider.

I didn't say he tore his ACL. I said 'ACL/MCL injured atheltes'.

But I agree with you. Keep Forte. I have a better chance of marrying Olivia Wilde than Gronk does of repeating a season like that.
