Keeper League advice

Postby Dem' Cowboys » Fri Feb 07, 2003 12:33 am

Howdy all- need some help. I just took over a team in an established keeper league. This league is very RB oriented. The guy I'm taking over for traded his/my 5th rnd pick already. We are only allowed to keep 4. First, whom would you keep, and why? And, should I try and make a deal for a stud WR?
QB- Brooks and Harrington
RB- A-Train, McAllister, Dillon
WR- Rice and J Smith
I am thinking about keeping Brooks, McAllister, Dillon and A-Train
Thanks for your help

Keep thinking the way you are,keep Brooks & your RBs,there will be plenty of WR talent to grab in your draft.

Well, here's my 2 cents.
I think you have a good team. But not a great one.
And you'll have a very good year. But not a great one.
Personally, especially if I had "inherited" a team in a keeper league, I think I'd dump the whole lot and stand or fall on my own.
I'd trade off most of these players for younger, rising stars.
I'd use the draft to build for the future.

Im with the majority of the guys here, but weasels thoughts on trading for younger more promising talent that could end up being your teams future, well thats not a bad idea either.
