Picking at the 1.03 this season after a rough year and need to decide on my keeper and how it impacts my 1st pick. I think It’s pretty obvious, but want to see what the foot clan thinks.
The league consists of 10 teams and utilizes standard scoring, 6 pt for all TDs and yardage bonuses over 100+ yards rush or receiving. Players are kept at the round taken in the previous season, only drafted players are allowed to be kept.
Starting roster is: QB, 2 RB, 3 W/T, TE, K, DST
My options worth noting:
Julio or Michael Thomas for a 1st (1.03)
Gronk for a 2nd (2.08)
Dalvin Cook for a 3rd (3.03)
Tevin Coleman 9th (9.03)
I’m currently leaning towards Cook.
As of right now I do not know the other keepers, but am projecting the following being kept by other managers based on keeper values:
Diggs, Zeke, Hunt, Allen, Bell, Fournette, Gurley
With the above players gone I will have good selection at the 3.03 and don’t find it wise to keep one of Julio or Thomas with my 1st. Based on my assumed keeper projections I predict the first two selections to be DJ and AB. Leaving me with a decision at my 1st pick between RB studs like Gordon, Barkley and Kamara or stud WRs like OBJ and Hopkins.
Based on the above would you keep Cook or one of the other mentioned players? Cook to me is a great RB2 option, especially in a league where we start only 2 RBs with no flex. I like the idea of getting 2 starting RBs like Gordon and Cook then filling with WRs for the next few rounds, if Gronk is available at my 2nd pick I would consider grabbing him as well. RBs always go early in this league and I feel like it would be foolish to come through the first 3 rounds with less than 2.
If you were in my position, how would you build the team?
