I have to pick a keeper from this group.

My 3 options are:

McFadden, Miles Austin, Tony Romo.

It's a PPR and not a lot of QBs are being kept.

I'm leaning Miles, what say you?

I don't like anything about Dallas at all. However, in my league good/productive WR's are hard to come by. I'd take Miles Austin over the others all day long and pray for a good draft.

The draft I'm not worried about. First round, I'm pretty locked into getting a top flight QB. We have bonuses for 300 yard passing games, give 6 points per td pass.

In that case, keep Miles Austin.

Austin.

You can grab another QB and McFadden is already banged up going into the season. Better RBs available.

McFadden has the upside to be the top fantasy scorer. He's got late round 1 ADP, whereas Austin and Romo are 3rd round at the earliest. This is actually pretty ridiculous that you're even considering it.

Are you forgetting the part where he's Injury prone going up against some of the toughest front 7's in the league this year on a team that MIGHT win 5-6 games this season?

If you're taking him anywhere before the 4th round in most leagues, you need to check yourself into the looney bin.

He's rated in the first round/early second round everywhere. He may get injured, but he did lead all RB in Fantasy PPG last year. The upside is enormous.

He's already injured.


The point is, you have to take a lot more into account than just what he did last year. Believe it or not, a lot of the projections this year are based on what they did last year against their schedules with that roster, instead of applying that to their schedule this year with their current roster.

Do you think he'll break 1000 yards this year if they lose all 16 games, splitting carries with Bush and being injured? Is 1,000 yards even a good mark for such a high projection? If you think Darren and Jamaal will put up similar numbers in terms of PPG and YPC as last year, you're completely mental.

Also that PPG statistic is idiotic. He didn't play in every game because of......you guessed it.....injury!

It doesn't matter if he's the highest rated guy according to yahoo analysts or not, if he doesn't play 16 games he becomes a liability. I know this, I had him last year coupled with McCoy. I tore shit up last year without drafting either of those guys.

McFadden's ine is garbage, his schedule is tougher and teams can just stack the box against the Raiders.

I could care less where his ADP is. He's a liability due to various injuries he's racked up over his career.

Okay, here is my roster from the end of last year. I get to keep 2.

Keep in mind:

I have the first pick of the draft.

Scoring is fairly typical. 6 points for receiving, rushing, and passing TD's. That doubles if a receiver rushes or a rusher receives. 1 point for every 25 yds passing. 1 point for every 10 yards receiving or rushing. Extra points for longer FG's. Etc, etc, etc....

Bradshaw, Ahmad RB NYG
Jackson, Fred RB BUF
Jones, Felix RB DAL

Looks like you should keep Andre and Peyton by default. Bradshaw would be my 3rd choice.

You need some rb's!

I thought that, too, but I had thought about keeping Bradford and Johnson as well. I'll have my pick of whoever isn't kept with the first pick.

And what do you think of Felix? He's starting for Dallas now. Or Fred Jackson did very well for me last year, too. Did Buffalo pick up anyone who could pass, or will they still be rushing a lot?

Keep AJ for sure. Probably should keep Peyton, but if you want Bradford then go that route. No one else is worth it, IMO.

If there isn't a RB better than Felix than you can take him with your 1st pick, but a better option will likely be available.

So, my main decision right now is if I want to keep Bradford or Peyton. Peyton just had neck surgery. He's on the PUP, but I'm sure he'll start the season. Wouldn't mind seeing him throw a little before then, though. I don't draft until the 28th.

Jones is slow as hell, and hasn't shown consistency or big game ability like a top RB needs to.

Plus Jones isn't going to get more than 12-14 carries.

We are keeping three, and I was thinking Peyton, MJD, and Nicks. But I also hate losing Jackson. We start the fomat seen below, so RBs and WRs make up 5 of the 9 spots starting.

New to keeper leagues, any suggestions would be appreaciated.

Not sure, it has a damn auto-draft. I'll have to rank all the players really well and think on my position selection order settings. I'll probably keep RB and WR in the first few rounds to make sure and nab any of the better players that people have to drop. Curious how it will look once the draft goes down.

Yeah, it is a league my cousin in the navy started, and the members are all over the world at a given time so they always do auto-draft. I actually typically end up with good teams because if you set up the order wisely, the people that don't end up drafting badly by picking up people that they wouldn't have otherwise.

Went through, and it appears that the following QB's may be available:

Matt Ryan

Sanchez
Manning (both, if I don't keep Peyton)
Bradford
Rothlisberger


Not sure about other positions right now. We don't find out who's being kept until after everyone turns them in morning of draft.

Yeah....but realistically who is going to steal touches from him? Bradshaw has Jacobs....who Coughlin has already stated will share carries with Bradshaw. I don't see Bradshaw repeating his performance from last season.

When Demarco Murray and Tashard Choice are healthy, they'll take 40-50% of the workload in the running game.

The thing about Bradshaw/Jacobs, is that without injury, Jacobs isn't going to see the rock much. It happened last year. Granted Jacobs made a mountain out of a mole hill with the carries he was given, I don't see that changing anything this year, after all his carries dropped significantly in the last few games of the season.

Jacobs didn't have a single game with 15 or more carries, and Bradshaw had only 4 of his 16 games below 15 carries.

I see a heavy dose of Bradshaw/Jacobs this year as the Giants try to run the ball as much or more than they did last year (they were a top 5-10 rushing team iirc)

Felix Jones is going to be a beast this year. He's looked amazing in the preseason, and Choice and Murray are not at all threats to take significant carries away. He's completely healthy this year and will go off.

Quick stat that I stole:

When Felix Jones gets 17 touches in a game, he averages over 100 yards.

When Wade Phillips was the HC, Jones averaged 13 touches a game.

When Jason Garrett was the HC, Jones averaged 17 touches a game.

Peyton, MJD, and Nicks.

Where do you pick at in the first round?

I am waffling more on my keepers. I'd locked in these three a couple weeks ago, but now with Peyton being possibly having a slower start when he does manage to get healthy, I am wondering about going with MJD, Nicks, and DeSean Jackson. That, or seeing if anyone in the league might want to trade me for Peyton to get some top player that would be even better than DeSean.

Autodraft is this Sunday, so I have a few days to think on it still. Also keeping tabs on how Peyton is progressing now that he is off PuP.

Example trade attempt I am thinking about, is Peyton and DeSean for Ray Rice. Her team is pretty threadbare, with Rice and Roddy White being the only two keepers I see. If I can get that trade, then I can keep MJD, Rice, and Nicks and have 3 players in or close to 1st rounders.

In order to be a top 5 team offensively, you have to convert on 3rd downs and play solid defense.

Dallas won't be top 5 this year, they'll be middle of the pack or slightly above average in the 12ish range.

Sweet. I went for the trade route, and this morning landed a trade to move Peyton and DeSean Jackson in exchance for Charles. So now my keepers will be MJD, Charles, and Nicks.

Honestly, Jacobs WILL be taking all the goal line carries. That alone, I wouldn't keep Bradshaw. But he does get catches, so for PPR, I'd go with Bradshaw. Then again F. Jones will get catches as well, so don't know.

Crap...looks like someone from my league has found CP and came to gave "advice".


Regardless, things changed as of this morning. Manning is going to another team in trade with DeSean. If I wanted to keep Bryant, I'd just drop him and pick him up with me first pick in the 4th round, since he will likely still be there then.
