    Keep as many as I want? Never had that option before. Whatcha think?

    16 teams, 6pt passing TDs
    QB, WR, WR, WR, RB, RB, TE, W/T/R, K, DEF, D, D, D, 6BN
    I can keep as many players as I want, they cost me picks. (If I keep 5 I lose my first 5 picks, if I keep 10 I lose my first 10 picks, and so on)
    I won it all last year with this squad, despite my lack of good RB depth. Players with a (*) next to them are who I am considering keeping. What say you? Too many? Not enough? Keep a TE? Moreno, Peirce, Richardson? Blackmon?

    Drew Brees*
    Wes Welker*
    Antonio Brown*
    Danny Amendola*
    Doug Martin*
    Knowshon Moreno
    Heath Miller
    Cecil Shorts*
    Vick Ballard*
    Montell Owens
    Martellus Bennett
    Riley Cooper
    Justin Blackmon
    Daryl Richardson
    Brandon Weeden
    Bernard Pierce
    Kris Durham
    Tashard Choice

    Justin Tucker

    49ers D*
    Rams D

    • I only see 5 worth keeping the rest you could probably draft again

    • Dude, that's brutal. A 16-team league with that many roster spots? I would be afraid to let anyone go, because everyone else will be keeping anyone worth anything. I like your keepers, but I'd also consider keeping Bennett, Blackmon, Pierce, and Richardson.

      Bennett could be a top-five TE this season with a new, pass-heavy offense.

      Blackmon is hugely talented, despite the lack of talent from his QB. The Jags, as always, will be behind most of the time, so expect a lot of passing. Blackmon will get the majority of those passes.

      Keep Pierce and Richardson simply because with that many teams the chance of you finding anyone better for your backup roles is very minimal.

      I would even consider keeping Moreno. He's already proven he's not the guy for Denver, hence the reason for them drafting Montee Ball. However, Moreno could find himself in a third-down role, and Manning doesn't mind dumping the ball underneath if it means not getting flattened by an oncoming defensive lineman.

      That means you're keeping 15 players, and losing 15 draft picks, but considering the circumstances I imagine a lot of owners will be keeping at least half of their teams. You won't miss out on many picks, and again, there won't be much available anyways except for a handful of decent rookies, who are unproven anyway.

      Martellus Bennett:Red Zone target for cutler.
      Justin Blackmon:Will miss the first 4 games but he was coming on strong late last season. Will starting 3/4 WR in a 16 team league might want to stock the WR position.
      Daryl Richardson:Yeah worth to keep in such a big league
      Bernard Pierce:Same as above

    • i think you should think about keeping pierce....i am not sure if he will take many carries from rice.....but in a league that big serviceable rbs are hard to come by....and at least you will have a good trading chip to the rice owner....also depending on when you have to decide richardson could be a good guy to keep.....he could be the starter for the rams.....
