I am in a 10 team 3 keeper league and like most you lose your draft pick that you drafted in when you keep a player, but if you picked that player up on waivers it counts as your last pick, forever. It does not revert back to an ADP or anything like that. For example, I have had David Johnson as my 15th pick in the draft since his rookie season and never plan to give him up at that cost. I also have some other players at advantageous draft spots, but last year I grabbed Zach Ertz in the second and considering his worth as a keeper.
Full disclosure - I am an EAGLES fan - and that fact clouds my though process somewhat. Although, I am not one to load my team with homer picks when it doesn’t make sense.
These are my keeper options -
Zach Ertz for a 2nd
Melvin Gordon for a 9th
Michael Thomas for a 14th
David Johnson for a 15th
I guess the real question would be, is Melvin Gordon worth a keep as a 9th rounder or is Zach Ertz the better value?
