Greetings, Forum! Matt here!
After being retrofitted into my friends keeper league, I have survived year one without having to house a losers trophy this offseason. I’d like to give myself the best chance going into this year so I am looking for some feedback on who I should keep before I announce to the other coaches on this Sunday (20th).
For reference (please see attached), I am in a 10-man, 2-keeper league, full point PPR snake draft starting (1) QB, (2) RB’s, (3) WR’s, and (1) Flex(RB/WR/TE) each week. I am picking 3rd overall this year. All of the keepers haven’t been announced yet, BUT the definite top available options this year, to give some perspective, are Leveon Bell, Antonio Brown, Julio Jones, Ezekiel Elliot (despite the 6 games), Rob Gronkowski, & Dez Bryant.
With the 3rd overall and especially with my league settings I would love to be able to draft Julio Jones third. Any counterarguments there? I fully anticipate Bell & Brown to go 1.01/1.02.
As for my two keepers, I could take the following:
-Theo Riddick (7th)
-Stefon Diggs (9th)
-Tyrell Williams (10th)
-Jameis Winston (16th)
I dig Diggs. Are Theo’s wrists healthy; will he be used in the red zone as early reports suggested, or are Kenny G’s routes TOO smooth? WIll Tyrell see his share after the year one breakout while in the midst of a healthy Keenan Allen? Is he worth keeping simply to have a solid WR3/4? Is the hype around Jameis worth forgoing one on the aforementioned for the sheer value? Is there any plausible case for Gronk 3rd overall, esp with all the performance bonuses in his contract? …Are you all still here? Let me have it!
Thank you all for your perspective in advance, and may the preseason not ruin everything!
P.S. - Zach, you still suck.
