Can only keep 2, please help

Postby Devil Doc » Fri May 03, 2013 6:22 pm

This is probably waaaaay to early to be asking about keeper help, but I'm interested to see how others may view my current team, and current keeper value.

Can only keep 2 players, and no limit on them. Our draft is randomized every year, so no idea where I'll be picking until closer to the season start.

My #1 keeper, and a no doubter is Doug Martin. However, with the 6pts/passing TD, I'm seriously considering taking Luck. I thought about DMC, but I think I should be able to draft him again this year if I needed/wanted to based on his horrible year last year.

Thoughts?

Scoring: NON PPR, 6pts/passing TD, 6pts/Ru and Rec TD, 1pt/25 yds passing, 1pt/10 yards rushing/rec
Start: QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1 RB/WR, TE, K, DST

My team:

QB: RGIII, Luck
RB: Martin, DMC, Moreno, Bryce Brown, Tate
WR: Decker, Amendola, Danario Alexander, Bowe, James Jones
TE: Jimmy Graham

Martin is definitely a no-brainer (like you said). I don't blame you for wanting to keep Luck, but I might consider keeping Graham. My thinking is that in redraft leagues, Martin is a 1st round pick, and Graham is most likely a 2nd round pick. Some might even take him late 1st (not me). Depending on how many QB's are kept, I think you have a better chance of getting Luck back in your draft. And if you end up not getting Luck back in your draft, you should be able to at least get a similar QB. Good luck! ;-D

I think Graham is the guy to pair with Martin. He is, in my mind, the undisputed TE1 going into the season. With as deep as QB is, I agree that you are much more likely to get Luck back to you as you are Graham.

I agree, Martin and graham are the guys to keep here. I can see all of the others falling to the 3rd or 4th round at least, if you're high on them you can target them in the draft and hopefully grab a couple of them. I don't see Graham falling to you if you throw him back here.

I agree with the majority. Graham and Martin give you a #1 at two positions. Luck can be redrafted (or one of the 6 or 7 QB's about his equal) much easier than Graham

Martin/Graham stockpile can add me to the list. However, if you want to keep Luck, I wouldn't be opposed to it.

If RGIII hadn't been injured I would have said to definitely keep him over Graham. Unfortunately that isn't the case.

I agree with Indi. Keeping Graham is a no brainer in this case.

Ill be a follower and go with Graham as well, like others have said he is the stud in a much shallower position. I would much rather have the #1-2 TE (when there are only 4-5 reliable TEs) than a mid tier QB when there are a dozen reliable QBs. When you are keeping 2 guys you need to really be trying to keep guys that are round 1-3 draft picks in standard leagues if possible.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I'm in full agreement with everyone else, Doc. Go for Graham and Martin. You've got a projected top 5 in two categories, and QB is deep. Good luck out there. ;-D
