Dynasty PPR/IDP - 1st pick question!

Postby DJUmperPSU » Wed Aug 21, 2013 9:37 am

Hello Guys,

What I am facing this year is my dynasty league has dropped the number of keepers to 10 (down from 13) making the decision with the 1st pick (which I traded for) extremely difficult. Rank the following players in the order which you think their dynasty value is for me. Here are my 10 keepers, and btw this is a PPR league with IDP.

I will just show my offense.

QB - Luck, Flacco (start 2)
RB - Spiller, Sproles, Bradshaw (Start 3 + flex)
WR - Austin, Boldin (Start 3 + flex)

Here is what is available to me with the 1st pick

M. Vick - QBS
F. Gore - RBS
L. Bell
D. Mcfadden
E. Lacy
M. Ball
C. Ivory
G, Bernard
J. Nelson - WRS
J. Jones
S. Smith (car)

What do you think?!?!

That is a tough call... I'm not sure Vick is worth it, despite the boost he could give you over Flacco. He's getting pretty old and is so up and down.

Gio looks like he might be the best long term asset for you to grab but he might not be a starter for you most of this year. Counter to that, Gore could replace Bradshaw for you and add some depth right now to your RB core. I think Jones is going to be solid again this year for TDs where Nelson is already hurt again and just can't seem to stay healthy and Smith is in a similar boat to Vick in that he must be nearing the end of his career.

So for me it boils down to Gio, Jones and Gore... I think I'd take the chance on a young buck and go for Gio. He looks like a beast so far in preseason and should be the starter next year taking the job from the Lawfirm. It is definitely a tough choice though!

I do appreciate your insight. I forgot to mention that Tavon Austin will be there obviously. Can he be in the mix?

In my opinion your best options are Jordy Nelson or Tavon Austin. You seem to have more of a need at the WR position. Your running back are pretty solid with Sproles in a PPR league and obviously Spiller. I would probably go with Tavon Austin.

This is my feeling too, but with RBS being so damn valuable right now it's tough not to go Gio.
