Keeper league, 10-team, .5PPR, 6pt TD.
HEAVY bonus on long scores and 100yd games

Don't pick til the end of the 4th round.
Picks: 4.10, 5.10, 6.01

Which 3 would you rather have as your core for the next 3-4 years:

Team 1: Spiller/Rice/BMarsh

Team 2: Spiller/AJ Green/BMarsh

Team 2 for sure...at some point in the next two years Rice will be breaking down (if he already isn't).

I would rather has Green.
BOLD PICKS FOR 2013
A. Rodgers outscores D. Brees in ESPN standard scoring by 40+.
D. McFadden plays 16 games (but ineffectively for someone whose only problem we always assumed was health).
M. Lynch=not a Top 10 RB.
V. Cruz=Top 7 WR.
G. Tate=Top 36 WR.

I would go with Rice over Green. I think the WR position is deep enough to keep the 2 RB. Rice is only 26, and there is NO WAY he is breaking down already. That's insane. They have a decent back up with Pierce, Rice should be able to stay fresh. The Ravens have also indicated that Rice might even line up at WR in some packages.
Last year Rice had 61 catches for 478 yards, Green had 97 for 1350. So in a half point PPR Green generated 48.5 points while Rice had 30.5. Difference of just 18 points over 17 weeks, just over a point a week. Rice had 10 TDs while Green had 11. BUT Rice totaled over 1600 yards to Green's 1350. Keep in mind this was all in a BAD year for Rice with Cameron really misusing him. Green also had a great year but by week 11 teams started to blanket him, and he didn't catch a TD from week 12 on and only had 2 100 yard games. The trend could see Rice's numbers go up and Green's stabilize.
You can get Givens Hilton Austin and Jennings all with an WR ADP of 30 or higher. They will give great value. You can't find similar value in RB that late in the draft.
Just my opinion
