Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Julio or D.Martin. Which would you keep?
10 teams...1/4 PPR, 1/10 point per carry, 1 point bonuses at 100/150/200 rushing/receiving. QB 2 WR, 2 RB, TE, W/T, W/R/T, DEF, K. Keep 2 using 1st two round picks. MUST keep 2....therefore a few studs will be dropped.
Keeping Shady for sure. Have Gordon, but you see how that worked out...lol. Torn between Julio and D.Martin as my #2. If I had to choose today it's Julio for sure. Don't have to pick till after preseason, so I will be monitoring that. Have the #3 pick after keepers, so I will get a good solid pick there as well. Guys available will likely be Spiller, Ellington, Gio, Cobb, Dez(or M.Ball), D.Murray, Stacy, and Martin if I drop him.
Keep Julio, right?

Julio for sure. Doug martin is kind of an unknown right now. We know he will start, but we also know he is sharing time with Mike James and the rookie Sims. Jeff Tedford, the new OC, is known for using Running back by committee. Until we know more about what his workload will be, I am very cautious when it comes to Doug Martin
I'm looking for a good RB2 option but can't decide between some of the players available in that range 30-60 type range. Who do you think is undervalued I could get in the 3rd or 4th round in a 12 team league?

That is a great question. There are a number of good backs that you can get in that range.
A few guys that I like are:
Alfred Morris - He is a late 20's/early 30's pick and depending on your league settings, he is being incredibly undervalued. I don't love him being drafted here in PPR leagues, but in standard leagues he is a steal this late. He is a lock for 1,000+ yards, and will most likely score 7-8 TDs.
Andre Ellington - Incredibly high upside for where he is being drafted. Played well down the stretch last year, and will now be the feature back in ARI. I love his versatility, and he will definitely be a factor in both the running game and passing game. There is definitely risk here because of his size, and the fact that he is unproven as a number 1 running back. But the upside is incredible.
Rashad Jennings - The more I evaluate this guy, the more I like him. He has always been a very talented runner, but unfortunately was buried behind MJD in Jacksonville for the better part of his career. Last year w/Oakland, he showed what he can do when given starter's touches. Jennings is 29, but doesn't have a lot of wear and tear on his body. He is a big/powerful back whose receiving skills make him a 3 down threat. Now that he is the feature back in NY, expect big numbers. Coughlin loves to run the ball.

Murray. I'm not sold on Giovani getting the work load required...
Plus Hill will vulture the short yardage TDs...
Murray is the featured back on what should be one of the best o-lines and offenses in league... plus their defense should be horrible and they'll have to put up points.
12 team h2h Keeper league ( You can keep a player for up to 3 yrs)
I can keep 2 players.
Rule - The keeper counts two before the round you drafted him last yr. example- If you draft someone in the 5th round you lose a 3rd round
Gio Benard- I would lose a 3rd rounder
Andrew Luck- I would lose a 5th rounder
Knowshon Moreno -I would lose an 11th rounder
Mike Floyd-I would lose a 7th rounder
Then there are dark horses like Marcus Lattimore and Latvius Murray where I would lose a 14th rounder for each.
Any advice on who I should keep?

Gio and Luck.
Both offer excellent values. Gio is an ascending player, and he has a chance to be one of the NFLs best all purpose backs. I love his potential, and think 3rd round will prove to be excellent value for him.
Luck in the 5th is the same. Luck is a player who has the potential to be a fantasy dynamo. He is a guy who next year could be on par with Stafford/Ryan, who are both going ahead of him this year. I think 5th round is a great value to keep him.

I don't think it will have a huge impact. They did take some losses on their O - line, but something to consider is this: Moving Eric Fisher from RT to LT is a huge plus. Fisher is more of a natural LT, and was clearly out of place playing on the right side.
Also - With Charles being so active in the passing game, he still is legitimately the best RB in fantasy football, or close to it (depending on if you consider McCoy a better option, as some people do).
Expect Charles to have another monster season. If you have the chance to take him, do not pass on it.
