Standard League - Can keep two players - Spiller and ?

Postby a06450 » Tue Aug 20, 2013 7:57 pm

I start 1qb, 2 rb, 3 wr (te count as wr), 1 k, 1 def.
12 team league

I have to return Brady and Forte.
I plan on keeping Spiller.

Need to keep one of following:
1. Colin Kaepernick
2. Ahmad Bradshaw
3. Daryl Richardson
4. Vincent Jackson
5. Randall Cobb
6. Rob Gronkowski

Thanks for any help and good luck to all, what a great time of year!

Is there any penalty for keeping them? Pick loss?

I would take a chance with Gronk only because none of the rest stand out as that great. However, if you don't feel comfortable with Gronk, because it is a little risky, I would take Cobb over the rest.
I drink because of the 1998 NFC championship game.

ibweis, there is no penalty for the keepers. We can keep two players from our final roster from the year before and can only keep a player for a maximum of 3 years. This is why Brady and Forte has to go back this year from my roster.

Stevooo, yes, Gronk is a bit scary due to his injuries and because he will be missing I think early on. Of course his upside is potentially incredible but he may be available back to me in the draft. I do like Cobb a lot especially with Rodgers throwing his way and now that your Vikes have have taken Jennings from the Pack I can see Cobb blowing it up this year.

Thanks for the feedback Stevooo and I look forward to your response ibweis.

I don't think keeping Gronk would make any sense with him getting 2 surgeries and him being a headcase. I like Kap or Cobb from the rest of the choices.

Honestly in standard scoring I don't like Cobb. He's going to be a huge PPR guy and won't score as many TDs. James Jones will be the one stealing all the TDs. I would take VJax or Gronk. VJax is a solid top 10 WR. If you really don't want either of those then I would consider Kaeperknick but probably take Cobb at that point.

I wouldn't call him a headcase aside from him making you crazy since he is coming back from an injury and plays for NE, the kings of keeping fans in the dark. The guy is a big dumb meathead but he catches a tonne of TDs so we take the bad with the good. That being said, I think the risk he brings to the table makes me shy away a little... He COULD finish the year as the top TE... but he could also play less than 5 games and totally screw you. I like Vjax as I don't see that team doing any worse than last year and he should remain stable in his production. People seem low on the guy but he finished top 5 in yards last year...
