    A Somewhat Complicated Keeper and Draft Pick Scenario: Advice Please

    Hello,

    First, the league settings:
    2 Man Keeper
    PPR
    300 yrd Passing Bonus (4 pts)
    90 yrd Rushing and Receiving Bonus (4 pts)
    1 QB, 2 RB's, 3 WR's 1 TE, 1 Flex, 1 D, 1 K

    Players that I can keep:
    Megatron (no question)
    RG3
    Alfred Morris
    Ridley
    Hakeem Nicks
    Jordy Nelson
    Matt Stafford

    Extra Draft Picks:
    I have an extra draft pick in the 3rd round (actually 5th round, but first two rounds are assigned to keepers)

    Draft Order Determination:
    An average of three scores are calculated: (last years draft position: 10, last year's finish: 1, and the average ranking of my two keeper players: Calvin is at 4 and the other guy _ ?)
    - So in other words, you get better draft pick consideration if you keep a guy who may be ranked lower overall on the top 200 big board, or whichever PPR list that we decide to use.

    Possibilities:
    I could keep Megatron and another guy listed above (favoring Alfred Morris), and keep the extra pick in the 5th to build a strong, competitive team.

    OR

    Not keep anyone other than Calvin Johnson, trade my extra pick in the 3rd round for the likes of LeSeaon McCoy, AJ Green or Trent Richardson (guys that are trading these players have 2 other really strong keeper candidates, and since they have to drop everyone but two players, they might as well get some value out of a player that they would drop)

    I hope this makes sense to you all. As you can tell, I'm in a rather fortuitous situation.

    I'd like your opinion on what you might do if you were in my shoes.

    I appreciate and welcome all feedback!

    Thanks and good luck this year!
