Kept Martin - Need some helps with picks 11&14

Postby whoson1st0 » Fri Aug 23, 2013 9:53 am

12 team league, 1 keeper, .5 ppr. Lineups use 2 RB, 3 WR and 1 RB/WR.

I kept Doug Martin and have the 11th & 14th picks in the 1st 2 rounds, then don't pick again until 35/38. Other notable keepers in the league are Marshall, Richardson, Spiller, Ridley. Need some advice on what players/positions to target.

I was thinking to take the best RB @ #11 to solidify that position, then take Graham in round 2 if available. Then hopefully 2 WR in round 3/4. Any thoughts?

Should I go for a #1 WR (likely AJ or Dez) instead a 2nd RB? What if Graham gets taken 12/13 after I've taken a WR in round 1?

Thanks for the help!

I think if you want Graham you should take him in the 1st, there should be a good RB for you in the 2nd, whereas if you take the RB first there isn't another Graham level TE siting there if the guy behind you grabs him.

Thanks! Anyone else?

I've gotten some advice to pass on Graham and go for the best RB at #11, then best WR at #14 so I've started leaning that way. I guess it depends on how good the best RB at #11 is (since 3 top RBs are being kept). The guy after me kept Marshall, so I'm guessing he will take a RB with one of his picks, but I'm thinking it's quite possible he could go best RB + Graham (if available).

My main problem with going WR over Graham is that WR you should be able to get someone really good with your next pick, for example, I went with Graham in the 2nd and got Andre Johnson and Randall Cobb the next time around. With your setup, if you take Graham first you're essentially taking him in the 2nd with all the keepers correct? His ADP is middle 2nd. Since there is only one guy behind you you could gamble that he won't grab Graham and go running back and Graham in the following round.

To be honest, with the 12 keepers, I wouldn't be surprised if someone grabs him before your 11th pick.

Our keepers are round 4 or later from the previous year...so the only players that would be first rounders this year are Martin, Richardson and Spiller.

Ok, never mind then, Graham should be available in 2 if you wanted to go RB in the first. And with Martin kept that might be the best option for you.
