Wow so 120 players get kept. That is huge. Honestly what I would do in that is go after some guys most people would think are too old. Because you already have a roster that will need to be turned over in 2 years with guys like Gonzo, and Jackson real close to being done. Like Donald Driver, Hines Ward, Mason from Baltimore. Most people in a keeper league that deep would deal you those guys a little bit cheaper than normal. Go for the win this year, let next year or the year after worry about themselves then. Because Spiller, Addai, Austin and Manning is a great base for the next 5 or so years. See if you can turn a Hester into Mason, and McFadden into Driver. That would really put you over the top this year to win.

I agree... I was gonna draft ward and he got picked just before so i grabbed royal and a similar situation happened with driver... I'm always looking at trades and hawkin the wire. Thanx for tha info... Good luck with your draftin
If you only need to start 2 WR's why do you have 7 would be my first question. In my mind you are only above average at QB.
I don't like it, sorry but average RB's at best, below average at WR Austin is great, but I don't think any of these rest is good enough to be in the top 24. TE average at best, K and DEF below average.
The draft is below average, but if your RB's exceed expectations and one of your WR's becomes a 20 WR you have a chance. I agree kicker is the least valuable position, but there still are some kickers like Kaeding, Longwell, and Gostkowski who will outproduce the best guy available on the wire.
As a Packer fan trust me, Jones is not worth having THIS year. How many people do you keep?
I see Manning, Austin, and then ? for next season. Hopefully Spiller starts to get the numbers, but I would only peg him in the Felix Jones range his rookie year. I don't see the point of Hester either. Those last 3 WR I'd probably try to turn into RB's or young QB's. Just in case you find a diamond in the rough. I'd look at Foster, Thomas Jones, Cassel, Leinart, Kevin Smith as some names to pick up in their place. Because Hester, Berrian, and Jones will not be keepers for next year, or put up 900 yds this year

We only keep 10/17 so most of the bench will be cleared... Wr were gettin gobbled up so i had to pick a few fliers if one pans out cool but i'm not tied to any. Berrian might be alright early if rice and harvin r out.
