    Hey guys, wondering if I could get help from you all. Here's the details: 12 team non-PPR league. Each team has two keepers. The guy I took over for I don't think was the best player. My players I'm keeping are Kaepernick (8th rd) and Golden Tate (9th rd). So I'm set at QB and a #2 WR.

    My question now, is that I'm drafting #2 overall. The available top ranked players with keepers taken out of the equation are as follows: Brees, Rodgers, Calvin, AP, Demarco Murray and Montee Ball. The player drafting above me at #1 has two excellent WR's as keepers (Fitz and Welker) so I assume he's not going to draft Calvin. He is a huge Pack fan so I'm hoping he drafts Rodgers so I can land AP. My problem is if he by chance drafts AP. Then I would be sunk, right? I would love one of the QB's but am married to Kaepernick right now. I've had Calvin on my team in the past and would take him in a heartbeat but it would be bad having both Lions WR's right? From there it would be a severe stretch to take Ball or Murray at #2 overall wouldn't it? So what should I do?

    I've been trying to trade down, as after the first five available there is a significant drop-off in talent IMO. I've been offered a #2, and two #4's in exchange for my #1. Ours is a snake format so the picks I'd be gaining would be overall #22, #45 and #46. I'm pressing him for a draft pick also next year TBD. Also I'm gaining interest from the overall last draft in the first round to give up picks #12 and #13.

    Sorry for the long-winded post guys. What would you do? Stay put and hope AP falls to me? Draft both Lions WR's? Trade out of the spot? Thanks for reading and helping a guy out!
