You can only keep 1 in a PPR League: Tom Brady VS MEGATRON

Postby NDPalmer » Wed Jun 26, 2013 9:24 am

In a 12 team PPR League with 1 keeper, a decision must be made. I've had Tom Brady for the last 6 years but I am leaning toward keeping Calvin Johnson this year. Someone help a brother out with some sound advice.

I would keep Johnson. Lots if solid QBs and Johnson is way above any other WR. I'm sure Brady will still have a good year, but he is losing a lot of weapons.

I agree with this, Brady will be alright and we know he can elevate his receivers play but the Pats receiver core is getting seriously thinned out,I'd keep Megatron

I honestly can't believe this is a real question. Brady is solid, FOR SURE, but megatron is the #1 WR in fantasy. QB is really deep these days and Brady is basically starting the season from scratch with a whole new set of WRs and potentially neither of his stud TEs. Gronk will be back but who knows when. I can see Brady finishing outside the top 10 at QB and would be willing to bet he is outside the top 5. If you look at the ADP of these two guys, Calvin is at around 6 overall and Brady is closer to 32. Megatron is the clear keeper here and in my opinion it isn't even close.

Agreed, Johnson and its not close. Gronk injured, Hernandez arrested and then released... I wouldn't want to rely on Amendola and the rookie crew to carry my QB this season. I could see Brady outside of the top 5, even the top 10. Calvin is the top overall WR, a top 5 pick in dynasty/keeper leagues. You need megatron more than you need Brady.

Hahaha, Sorry if I seemed rude! This just seemed crazy due to the timing. All the weapons are crashing down around Brady right now and Calvin is the undisputed king of WR's. Your gut was leading you in the right direction!

even if Brady had all his weapons, I'd be keeping Megatron over any QB

Keep megatron all day. Bunch of solid QB's out there to replace Brady and Brady's production is bound to go down because of lack of weapons.
