    Help with keepers

    In my league we do 5 offensive keepers and 5 defensive keepers. I basically need help choosing my fifth keeper for offense.

    my four definite keepers:
    Cam Newton
    Zac Stacy
    Doug Martin
    Julio Jones

    my fifth keeper has to come from the below group:
    Rashad Jennings (who I'm leaning towards right now)
    Ridley
    Golden Tate
    Greg Olsen
    Kenbrell Thompkins
    Hakeem Nicks

    Whatcha think?

    • I think you have to go with Jennings. As your 5th keeper your looking for the big payday. Of all the players in the list only Jennings has the chance to be a difference maker. Tate is the best WR no doubt but with Megatron on the other side he is just not gonna be a monster sleeper. Jennings could be a top 10 RB and if you let him go your gonna slap your own momma

    • Rashad. You don't need anther RB, but he is still the best option.

    • well Jennings is interesting but there is a few things you need to know about him.

      #1 Most important thing... the guy is injury prone. He is up their in age... with low mileage... the guys never been healthy before last year.

      #2 Touch Downs?: There is news surfacing out of Camp that Rookie RB Andre Williams will be the goal line back which i completely agree with. He is a Physical Short Compact Runner that is almost as strong as a Bull! He will Vulture Many TDs from within the 20 yard lines.

      #3 News of David Wilson and his recovery?:
      Everyone forgets David Wilson was a top Round or second round pick last year. He is a Dynamic Runner... as well as a Great Receiver. The only Real Downside to him is his fumbling issues... which i expect him to fix this year.

      I expect David Wilson to get a lot of Pass Catching opportunities out of the backfield this year.

      So if David Wilson ends up being the Third Down / Pass Catching back...

      Andre Williams in the Goal Line back

      That leaves Jennings as a boring option... This backfield is a three headed monster you want nothing to do with.

      Although Jennings is the best player potentially in these options...

      Golden Tate is probably the best option.

      With Calvin Drawing all of the Top Defensive threats... Golden tate should put up monstrous numbers in one of the Top Passing offenses in the NFL.

      Ridley is likely the top RB option... the fact that you have Two Solid Running backs in the league...

      Golden Tate is likely your best option.

    • I also have the first two picks in the draft after the keeper rounds due to trades last season.
