I can keep two (dont have to). I lose the first two rounds if I keep two, but if every body else does as well then we are all on even ground. I will also be the 4th pick overall after the first two rounds.

Available keepers:

Arian Foster
Ray Rice
Aaron Rodgers

Is it a ppr league? Do QBs get 6pts for a TD? Need more info but I'd still probably lean towards Foster and Rice.

Not a PPR league. And yes the QB's get 6 points. Everything is pretty much a standard yahoo format.

I was leaning that way, but am starting to think maybe Rodgers over Foster.

IF QB's get 6 you absolutely have to keep Rodgers.

Go with Rodgers and Foster.

No PPR......easily Rodgers and Foster.

Wow.... surprised so many on the Foster bandwagon over the Rice one.

The removal of McGahee doesnt make Rice more valuable? And not worried about Foster having a down year and last year was not just a fluke?

Honestly.....it's an either/or type of thing. No PPR sucks a lot of the added value out of Rice though.

Agreed... Rice had a down year last year as I had kept him and Rodgers last year over MJD (good decision in the end). So now I am wondering if I can get a solid QB and keep two star RBs since the difference between top end QBs is not as big as the difference between top end RBs.

And if I do keep one RB, I am trying to get pros and cons of each.

Drop them all. Picks are more valuable.

Maybe I can get the commish to give me two extra picks as compensation... I heard he is a real tool so may take the deal.

I'm confused. Foster is a legit top 3 pick. Rice and (to a lesser extent) Rodgers are both also considered 1st round picks. Unless you're getting 2 top 5 picks, there's no reason NOT to keep two of these guys.

It was a joke as ragee is the commish.

Does it change anyone's mind if Romo or Schaub are available to draft after the keepers are selected?

Would you have the choice between either of those two?

It's all going to depend on what the next available RB would be.

Nothing is known for sure, but I am going off probability. My guess is that I would have the pick between those two (which means I would want Romo most likely)... and possible RBs available - Bradshaw, Moreno, Blount, D. Williams, Forte.... that tier of RB.

That's a tough one.

Which team would you rather have?

Rodgers
Blount
Foster

or

Schaub
Foster
Rice

That was my thought (not sure I would take Schaub over Romo though since I would have Foster), but I question that only because RBs come and go and QBs are much harder commodity to find and keep over the years. I could keep Rodgers for longer because of the longevity of his career vs one of the RBs.

True....just realized that. I'd probably go with Rodgers and Foster then.

Care to explain your logic on that as opposed to Foster and Rice?

You aren't in a PPR league. Foster and Blount are beasts in non-ppr leagues. Plus I'm not really a huge Romo fan.

I think Romo will have a good bounce back year so will be in the lower end of the second tier of QB's.

I also worry though that Rice will have a good year as well, but he really disappointed me last year with as much as Balt passed the ball so I wonder if they will continue that trend as well.
