    Spiller's worth in a keeper league

    12 team auction league we keep 3 at the price they were drafted. Spiller went for $8/$200. While right now he's currently riding this guys bench, if Fred Jackson ever gets out of the picture he can be the best RB in fantasy football.

    We've made a few back-and-forth offers. Most recently he offered Keller/Spiller/Young for Gronk/Stewart, which I have no intention of accepting. I'm considering countering with:

    Julio Jones/Jonathan Stewart for Mike Wallace/CJ Spiller. He may not accept it but is it worth it to offer much more? QB, RB, RB, WR/RB, WR, WR, TE

    My team:

    QB: Matt Ryan , Romo
    RB: Mathews, DMC, Stewart, Mendenhall
    WR: Andre Johnson, Nelson, Julio Jones, Amendola, Hartline
    TE: Gronkowski, Celek (for the bye)

    • in a keeper league, spiller could be worth as much as Arian Foster. Id would try to trade a couple vets. Offer him Andre Johnson and Mendenhall straight up for Spiller. Andre has name power even though he has been bad lately and Mendy still has name power as well. It will look like hes getting a steal, but you will be set at RB for the next decade in your league.

      • I agree with you. I would love to be able to have him ($8 next year for both him and Matt Ryan would be great). I made a few counters to him:

        Julio/Stewart for Spiller/Wallace
        Andre/Stewart for Spiller/Cobb
        Andre/Mendenhall for Spiller

        The problem is if he rejects those the only way I could feasibly get him would be to offer Gronkowski (he would give me Bennett or Keller in return), which cripples me this year. Maybe I could swing a deal like Gronk/Andre Johnson for Harvin/Spiller/Bennett. Harvin went for only $20 this year...could be my third keeper.
