    Keeper Questions

    Thanks. Actually they don't take up a spot in the draft. But I have DMC and Thomas who I have to keep for the rest of their "contracts". So none of the choice with take a draft slot, I just need to pick the best player out of them and I will have them for the next 3 seasons. But if I pass on one of the QBs I should have options in the 2nd round which then I can make a keeper the following season if they pan out.

    • Alright that helps. Out of the five players you listed I would only feel comfortable committing to Wilson or Ryan. I don't see Chicago D doing nearly as well next year as they did this year with Lovie and Urlacher gone. And I wouldn't feel comfortable committing three years too Wallace or Amendola because we aren't sure how well they will do with their new teams. Wallace is a head case and his QB isn't that good yet. Amendola could do well with Tom but he won't be at Welkers level, plus Tom will spread it around to Gronk, hernandez, and everyone else. Wilson had a great year, but personally I'd go with Ryan. Ryan has been consistently great since entering the league. Wilson may get better but we have only seen him for one year and don't know what he will become. This is just how I think, if I committing three years to one guy, he has to be the real deal and I have to know he will perform. And I think Ryan is the only guy I can say that about. Hope this helps!

      • Thanks. Yeah I guess my hang up is that I can most likely get one of those 2 QBs in the second round this year and then could make them a 3-year keeper starting the following season. But that would be if I had someone better next year I'd have to chose between the QB and the other player (who I guess hopefully would be better than Wallace). The way our league works is that every year in a 12 team league each team keeps 1 new 3-year keeper (anyone on your team outside the 1st round) and every 2-years you get a new 2-year keeper (has to be drafted in the last 3 rounds or a FA pick up). So you end up with 4 keepers each year which every season one becomes a free agent per say.
