Not sure who to draft in my Keeper league!

Postby demon22 » Mon Aug 19, 2013 1:46 pm

I play in an 8 team, 2-QB PPR Keeper league. Through a solid draft and a series of trades last year, I was able to keep Arian Foster, Ray Rice, and Drew Brees this year.

I draft 7th overall in our draft this year. I'm wondering if I should simply draft thee best available, regardless of position, or target a #1 WR. The wideouts that were not kept by my opponents include players like Randall Cobb, Roddy White, Demaryius Thomas etc. If you had my situation, how would you draft? Please help!

I'd look for the best at a the position, and depending on who is there I may choose a #1 WR instead. Do you have access to the full list of players who were not kept?

Sorry, posting from my phone at work so I don't have the info in front of me, but I'll look at my spreadsheet this evening and get back to you.

These are the list of the top players remaining (by position) after the other players selected their Keepers:

QB
Tom Brady
Colin Kaepernick
Russell Wilson
Andrew Luck
Tony Romo
Ben Roethlisberger
Michael Vick

RB
Trent Richardson
CJ Spiller
Darren Sproles
Steven Jackson
Alfred Morris
Reggie Bush
Darren McFadden
Maurice Jones-Drew

WR
Randall Cobb
Roddy White
Demaryius Thomas
Reggie Wayne
Wes Welker
Vincent Jackson
Victor Cruz
Marques Colston

TE
Rob Gronkowski
Tony Gonzalez
Jason Witten
Vernon Davis
Brandon Myers
Jermichael Finley

Of the 6 players who will pick ahead of me, 3 of them are likely to pick a RB, 1 of them will likely take a QB, 1 of them is likely to pick a WR, and the other 1 could go either RB or WR. What do you guys think?

If you can draft a player and turn around and trade them for a better WR than you could draft you should consider that. Since you're in a 2 QB league chances are QB's are highly coveted, if there's good QB's on the board that might be the way to go as well.
