Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
This is my team from last year, minus Michael Turner (1st round pick, so I can't keep him). Who would you keep for the next 3 years out of these guys? Also I get a keeper for 2 years that was between the 13th-16th rounds or a free agent pickup.
Choices for my 3-year keeper:
Marion Barber (Chi - RB)
Michael Bush (Chi - RB)
Ryan Fitzpatrick (Buf - QB)
Jimmy Graham (NO - TE)
Vincent Jackson (TB - WR)
Jake Locker (Ten - QB)
Darren McFadden (Oak - RB)
Matt Moore (Mia - QB)
Hakeem Nicks (NYG - WR)
Ben Roethlisberger (Pit - QB)
Steve Smith (Car - WR)
Demaryius Thomas (Den - WR)
Choices for my 2-Year Keeper:
At this moment I'm planning on keeping McFadden (3-Year) and Demaryius Thomas (2-Year).
McFadden might seem like a good option, but he's a massive injury risk. Consider taking the younger and less injury prone Hakeem Nicks or Jimmy Graham, two rising stars at their respective positions. Graham will be top 5 tight ends for at least the next 2 seasons.

Yeah thats my one concern with McFadden, but when he does play he is a top-5 RB if not better. Nicks I just wonder how much the ball will be spread out between him and Cruz, and Graham I feel I could get with my 2nd round pick and potentially would be my next 3-year keeper
League has a new 3 year keeper added every year and a new 2 year keeper every 2 years which gives us 4 keepers to have under "contract". This is the 1st year doing it so these two would be my 1st 2 keepers for this team
McFadden and Thomas would probably be my choices, as well. Only change I might consider is Fitz with your 2-year, but only if you expect every decent QB to be kept so you'd be stuck with someone like Gabbert if you don't keep a QB.

There should be a few QBs I can get. A lot of the top QBs will be kept like Cam Newton, Drew Brees, Matthew Stafford, Tom Brady, and also possibly Jay Cutler and Philip Rivers. So I should be able to get a serviceable QB like Rodgers, Vick, Big Ben, Eli, or Payton Manning. I have the 9th pick of a 12 team league, with 2nd, 3rd, and 7th picking ahead of me with QBs and maybe the 1st pick also. 11th and 12 picks are people with QBs also. So Rodgers will be gone before my pick but there are others.
Depends a little on the scoring system, PPR might change some things...
But standard leagues, DMC and Thomas are your best bets. Thomas is a no-doubter at the 2-year spot given your alternatives, and McFadden is your only viable RB option.
