Have to submit my keeper decision soon and could really use some other viewpoints on my situation. Bear with me, explaining is a little bit wordy. I could REALLY use some level headed advice.
We have the option to keep a player selected in the 4th round or later the following year as your automatic 3rd round pick. The draft order is reverse of the previous year’s standings, but if you keep you get cycled down to the bottom of the order. 5 teams are keeping Kamara, Hunt, Mixon, Cook, and Keenan Allen who will automatically be picks 32-36. I have Juju Smith-Schuster who is keeper eligible. Here are my two options:
Option A: Forego keeping Juju and pick #6, #19, and #30 in the first 3 rounds.
Option B: Pick #10 and #15 in the first 2 rounds and keep Juju as the automatic #34 pick.
Logic: Due to the RB’s automatically off the board, RBs are at a premium. I am worried about what is going to be left at #19 and reaching for Melvin or Fournette at #6. I think I am more comfortable taking whoever falls to #10 between Melvin, Fournette, Saquon, OBJ, or Hopkins then the same logic at #15 between McCaffrey, McKinnon, Freeman, MT, and Julio. Juju is #31 on my board after I remove the 5 keepers so getting him at #34 automaticaly isn’t a big reach in my mind. Please, I would love to hear how others would handle this
