Keeper question

Post by dead_poet » Fri Aug 30, 2013 2:21 pm

Can possibly keep 2 between:

Doug Martin
Brandon Marshall
Arian Foster
Julio Jones

0.5 PPR. 12-team league.

Martin is obvious. Not sure about the other. Foster would be a no-brainer most years, but has the injury and possible time-share with Tate that's making me nervous. My pick is #8. I'm still leaning towards Foster.

Thoughts?

Wow that's a tough one. Last year in my PPR I won by putting more emphasis on WR's than RB's, with guys like Marshall who catch a ton of passes but we got 1 point per reception so it was a little more skewed. I think I agree on the gamble with Foster with Jones being second choice.

I would go Martin & Jones. I don't care how good Foster is, I think there's too many red flags to invest in him for the future. There's too much uncertainty in Chicago for me to keep Marshall. He is very good though. Jones has quickly become one of the top WRs in the game and will be considered top 3 very soon. I'd hang onto him

Ended up only keeping one. Martin was the clear choice.

What determines the amount of keepers?

In this case it was a league vote.

Would you trade McCoy for Martin? 0.5 PPR?

Kind of a wash at this point isn't it? McCoy might be more productive, but has had his eggs scrambled before. Martin could be a beast too. .5 ppr I would even own Morris, in fact I was forced to draft Morris in a full 1 ppr. But that was because I didn't notice the clock was 30 secs, and I was reading about Brandon Marshalls hip issues, came back it took Morris.

Missed out on the top 5 ppr WRs :wallbang: Good thing I took Boldin it seems.
