Have a keeper question, I need help


#1

12 team ppr league and I know I draft 9th. I can keep either Ezekiel Elliot for a 1st (value since I draft 9th) or keep Jamison Crowder as my last pick(14th). Need Help

Jeeze, Crowder is a steal in the 14th, but it’s hard to deny the raw power of having zeke as yoyr 9th pick. Even eith a suspension. Plus he has keeper value for years to come. I’m keeping zeke and rollin on. Maybe unless he has like a 10 game suspension or something crazy.

Only problem is the league has strict keeper rules, you can only keep a player for 1 year


#4

ah that does change things. i might go for the value then. you know he will produce, doesnt have a suspension looming, and he is essentially free. yeah, i think i switch to crowder.


#5

I still keep Zeke (shameless homer here). Despite whatever punishment they hand down (I think none) he will be a monster this season. Even with Crowder’s value, which is undeniable, he will not put up sure fire numbers like Zeke. You want to roll with him regardless.


#6

Keep the RB1. Crowder is a great value but Zeke can put up top 3 RB points.


#7

Getting Zeke at 9 is a steal. The value on Crowder is good, but his two year production won’t touch that of Zeke. Just my 2 cents.

eh i dunno, as the number 3 WR on his team he still put up high WR3 numbers. going off of ESPNs numbers, 200 points. now he will be that number 2 (maybe 1 depending on pryor) so its not crazy to think he will get to the high end WR2 range. which is a michael crabtee (240 points on ESPNs site) so for a free pick getting a high end WR2, im on board with that.

besides, i wouldnt consider zeke a steal at 9, unless i knew for a fact that he wont get suspended. even if he does get suspended though, i do agree so long as it stays at 3 games or less, he would still be a steal. i just like the idea of getting a WR2 for free, and using my 1st rounder on another high end pick. so by pick 9 he will have a WR2, and potentially a WR1 or RB1. i would much rather have that, than zeke and what ever i would get in the 14th. just my humble opinion.

Not a bad position to be in anyway. I think its a bit of a tough sell on Crowder though - that team is stacked with talent and assuming everyone stays healthy a lot of targets are going to Reed and Pryor.

With a potential keeper that will cost you a 1st round pick, the best thing to do is to figure out who you could get at your #9 pick. Figure out which of the teams with picks 1-8 will have a first round keeper. That will let you know whether you will get value at your pick. Will there be any players, such as Bell, who may be a 2nd round keeper due to the suspension or Mile Evans who was a round 2 pick?

Look at what who you will actually be able to pick at #9. Is it Demarco or Ajayi or Howard at RB? Would you rather use that #9 pick on one of those or Zeke? Yes, you have the “value” of a #2 WR for free … but what about your #1?

yeah i agree on the stacked talent. pryor will get his looks thats for sure. a lot of this will depend on if josh doctson shows up. if he does, and he shows up big, oo man this could be the wrong pick, even for a 14th rounder. but im still confident that crowder gets his looks, and plenty early while pryor and cousins get on the same page. i mean im not saying its for sure the best pick, because hey, who doesnt feel dirty taking crowder over zeke? i just prefer safety. we should know more by tomorrow on zeke too, so my opinion my drastically change as well.

Yea I would say that is a fair assessment. That Washington team scares me. The NFC East is going to be brutal this year.
