Know it's early and will revisit this post later when I know the draft position, but want some early insight.

Rules: 12 team 2 player keeper league, can't keep anyone drafted before the 3rd round and can only keep them for 2yrs. Or undrafted for 3yrs. starting at round 14 for the 2nd year.

Standard scoring with .5ppr.

Undrafted: Julius Thomas, Rivers, Mike James.

Potiental keepers: Gio Bernard(give up 2nd round), Alfred Morris(giveup 10th round), Denarius Moore(give uo 11th round), Decker(giveup 3rd round), Jordy Nelson(giveup 4th round).

I am high on Bernard this year but is he worth a 2nd round pick? Morris is in his last year, Thomas and Rivers I can keep 2 more years.

I will revive this post later when I know my draft order, but just wanted some early insight. Thank you!

Your best value here would be Morris at the 10th round. However, he is not a PPR back and is a boom/bust prospect since we know the Redskins will throw a ton this year. And Morris' reception totals are terrible. However, if he scores 13 td's that will help. But he is not much a risk at the 10th round. D. Moore is in the Doghouse in Oakland right now and might not even start.



Just some random thoughts for you to think about.

If all of the great Qb's are being kept in your league then I keep Rivers, if not then I keep Thomas and Nelson. Jordy has been going in the second round in my PPR mocks.

Gio is only a PPR back and he has gone in the 2nd round in each of the ten mock PPR drafts I have been involved in. The concern with Gio is that he will have to share carries with the rookie, and certainly lose goal line carries to Green-Ellis. But Gio will be a PPR monster.

You have to keep Thomas though. He just does not get out of the second round in PPR drafts. Should be a monster in PPR this year.

James, as always thank you, Thomas was always my no-brainer(just wanted to hear it from somebody else), but wasn't sure which direction I should go with for 2nd choice. Always went RB heavy, but after last year I learned how much things have changed and it is now a QB and WR league. P.Manning is the only top QB off the board, so if I go Thomas and Nelson(4th round pick) let say I am middle of the pack, where do you see my first 3 rounds going?

Sorry about posting in the wrong section! James could you move me to the draft section?

I would go take 2 RB's and another WR, or Qb. If QB's don't fly off the board early, then I would go two Rb's and another WR.

I never pick my Qb until the 8th or 9th round. But that is just me. Depends on how scoring is in your league.

You will have a distinct advantage with already having Thomas. I have done many PPR mock drafts and he is going top of the second round. Having Graham and Thomas as a powerhouse point players gives you and advantage even if your WR's are a little bit weak.



Now that the Packers released news about a hurry up type offense this year, it makes that Jordy Nelson keeper more important.



Good luck Glenn!

James, so you're telling me to go against my antiquated idea of going RB heavy? I LIKE IT! No one in this league will think I am not keeping an RB. Last 2yrs I have wound up trading a good RB for a WR just to keep up. I usually win the regular season and make it to the championship game but keeping getting beat by teams with good WRs. Seems like late in the season RBs go out the window and WRs take over?

Still looking forward to when we can get you in the FFS league but until then, Thanks for all you help!

And Good Luck to you buddy!
