Hi, I am in a 12 team 5 keeper league. I have to determine 5 keepers for the upcoming
season. I got 4 sure things but cannot decide on the 5th. LT, Sjax, Palmer and Fitzgerald
are no brainers but who to choose as the 5th. Portis, Brandon Jacobs, Driver, or
V Davis. we can start 2 RBs and 2 WRs and a flex at RB or WR. WR and TE get 1 ppr.
scoring is 1 point every 25 yards, 5 point bonus at 100 nad 6 point tds, tes get
bonus at 50 yards. I finished 2nd last season so I will have the 11th pick and 2nd
pick in round 2.

You have to keep Jacobs. You need insurance at RB if you have an injury.

i also think jacobs is best fit, it will allow you to draft depth at receiver and youll probably have better choice then driver or at least get him back
I love this time of year, and i wish i still had Phil Simms :)

I agree with James and bj, Jacobs is my pick. This gives you 2 elite starting RB's and a possible great RB for your #3. With those 5, you have a GREAT core to build your team around.

You smell that? Do you smell that? ...Napalm, son. Nothing else in the world smells like that. I love the smell of napalm in the morning!

Just to relive this post.....What are the opinions on keeping 4 RBs. Keep in mind the WRs and TE's get 1 PPR. So I would be letting Fitzy go back in to the draft. This was mentioned to me by a couple people. I can start 2 RB and 2 WRs and a flex at RB or WR. So I would always have 3 starting RBs. but that 1 PPR jumps WRs up a bit dont it

well looks like most keepers are in and I have made educated guesses on the rest. this is based on me keeping 1 Qb, 2 RBs and 2 WRs....the best Rbs available will be

T Henry
B Jacobs
A Green
B Jackson
A Peterson
Fred Taylor
K Jones

That said I did a first round mock and it looks like 4 or 5 RBs will go before my 1st pick. So can I get teh same quality back at Rb if I let Portis and Jacobs go...I think Portis might make it back....guys in league have soured on him but who knows

at Wr the best available will be

R Browns
Calvin Johnson
S Moss

if I drop Driver i am looking at one of these guys and I see maybe 6 WRs going before my 1st pick....

so does that help anyone... V Davis I can get with my 2nd pick almost positive...if not i will settle for Whitten or LJ
