If I was to guess the other keepers, I'd say Ingram, Doug Martin, Jeffery, Charles, Anderson, Nelson, maybe LeVeon if he slips. Basically the players going late teens - early 20s ADP in standard drafts.
10-team H2H league (6-team playoff) with 0.5 PPR.. Positions are QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 W/R/T, 1 DEF, 1 K, 6 BN. I can pick up to 2 keepers for the avg of the pick they were drafted in and the pick of the round Yahoo has them ranked in (rule to promote players eventually going back in the draft). I have the 7th overall pick so I go 7, 14, 27, 34, etc. I'm keeping AJ Green for sure as he's a 2nd round cost for me. Debating the 2nd keeper between these options.
Keenan Allen - 4th round, Randall Cobb - 3rd round, Jarvis Landry - 11th round, Tyler Lockett - 12th round
I was leaning Allen as a WR1 for a 4th pick is great value but worried about him getting hurt or if he'll be solid again. I actually like Cobb to bounce back and outproduce Allen but I can't justify keeping someone going later in drafts at a more expensive price on a hunch. Landry or Lockett are value options but I can't see myself passing up starting the draft with two WR1s and burning just a 2nd and 4th.
Am I making the right call keeping Allen?
10-team H2H league (6-team playoff) with 0.5 PPR and QB stats being 50 yards = 1 point while TD pass = 6 pts. Positions are QB, 2 WR, 2 RB, 1 TE, 1 W/R, 1 W/R/T, 1 DEF, 1 K, 6 BN. I can pick up to 2 keepers for the avg of the pick they were drafted in and the pick of the round Yahoo has them ranked in (rule to promote players eventually going back in the draft). I need help as I'm in a terrible situation. I have the 7th overall pick so I go 7, 14, 27, 34, etc. Here are the prices of some options I have, could change depending on how Yahoo updates rank.
AJ Green - 2nd round, Keenan Allen - 4th round, Randall Cobb - 3rd round, Jarvis Landry - 11th round, Tyler Lockett - 12th round, Dion Lewis - 12th round, Danny Woodhead - 9th round
I feel that Green is best option but unsure who else I should keep. I was leaning Allen as a WR1 for a 4th pick is great value but worried about him getting hurt or if he'll be solid again. I like Cobb to bounce back and be a top 10 WR but don't know I can keep him over Allen even though I think he'll outproduce him. Landry has a nice price and could be a solid PPR play but there's talk of Devante Parker becoming the #1 WR in Miami plus Landry is a WR3 as of now and I don't know if it's wise to go that route. Lockett or Lewis are decent options at that price but again, would you keep them over the studs I mentioned before? I threw in Woodhead as well as he's quietly been a solid PPR play over the years and I don't have RB options.
For now I'm leaning Green for sure and debating between the other 4 WR (especially since Lewis is hurt). Who do you feel I should keep?

Yeah I guess my logic with Demarco is I worry about him getting hurt and I feel like Derrick Henry could break out this year.
As far as QBs go, I feel like Cam might be the only one taking early. I have no doubt A-Rod will have a solid year or even the other QBs you mentioned but I feel like I'd benefit more by stacking on RBs, WRs or even grabbing a TE like Reed or Olsen if they're available, then waiting and settling for a QB late. Of course I know of the risk of people taking a backup QB haha but I normally make sure to keep an eye on who's missing QBs so I can grab one late like say Brady lol.

Hey there, looking to compile a list of undervalued and overvalued players based on ADP for the upcoming season. Here are some names I've heard floated around...what do you guys think? And would you add/take away any guys?
So what do you think of this list? Also are there any elite QBs you would spend an early pick on? I like to go elite QB or be one of the last guys picking QBs but I can't see any QBs I'd want early.
12-team H2H league with 6-teams in playoffs. Currently 4th. Batting cats are R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP. Got offered Castellanos for Mazara. Here are my bats.
C - Cervelli, 1B - Big Papi, 2B - Kipnis, 3B - Dan Murphy, SS - Correa, OF - Blackmon, Yelich, Mazara, Melvin Upton
So given these hitters, would you make the trade? I feel like it'd be great since I find OF to be more replaceable and giving me a corner infielder gives me flexibility to shop Papi or Murphy for solid pitching or upgrades elsewhere while they're value is high. On the flipside, if Mazara is a breakout star I could be kicking myself for trading him...especially if Castellanos drops off.

I got offered Hosmer + Rosenthal for Ortiz + Andrew Miller. I don't like the idea of it because of how reliable Miller is....what do you think? Can I do better and do you think we can strike a deal?

I got offered Hosmer + Rosenthal for Ortiz + Andrew Miller. I don't think I can do that because of Miller's reliability...what do you think? Do you say any way we can strike a deal?
I'm in 5th place in 12-team H2H standard league (6-team playoffs) with 7x7 cats. Batting cats (R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP) and pitching cats (W, SV, K, HLDS, ERA, WHIP, K/BB). Looking for a closer as I only have one closer right now. Here are following trades I can make.
I get Hosmer + Wade Davis and give Big Papi + Fernando Salas
I get Votto + Kenley Jansen and give Big Papi + David Phelps
C - Cervelli, 1B - Big Papi, 2B - Kipnis, 3B - Dan Murphy, SS - Correa, OF - Blackmon, Yelich, Mazara, Melvin Upton, SP - David Price, Keuchel, Scherzer, Stroman, Chatwood, Eickhoff, RP - Andrew Miller, Luke Gregerson, Fernando Salas, Brad Brach, David Phelps
So given this team, what do you think of these trades? Good or am I asking for too much?
Solid squad imo but saves could be a concern. SP is also a position that you're ok in but could improve. Maybe try trading someone like Cruz for a dependable starter + top-tier closer?
I could pick up Panik or move Murphy to 2B and Valencia to 3B. If you wouldn't do Stroman for Kemp, would you do Stroman + Yelich for Braun or Keuchel + Kipnis for Bautista? I will look at your post.
12-team H2H standard league with 7x7 cats. Batting cats (R, H, HR, RBI, SB, AVG, OBP) and pitching cats (W, SV, K, HLDS, ERA, WHIP, K/BB). Trying to get an opinion on how good this team is. A couple of things to note, yahoo's draft layout gave us trouble and wifi kept cutting out so I autodrafted Valencia early (as I had him in my prerank). Pitching is key in this league as most teams that wins or are competitive have strong pitching (lower weekly add/drops cut the effects of streaming).
C - Cervelli, 1B - Big Papi, Texeira, 2B - Kipnis, 3B - Dan Murphy, SS - Correa, OF - Blackmon, Yelich, Danny Valencia, SP - David Price, Keuchel, Waino, Stroman, Wei-Yin Chen, Eickhoff, RP - Wade Davis, Andrew Miller, Tolleson, Luke Gregerson, Soria
So is this team a title contender? And if not, what are my strengths and weaknesses? (Consider trading strengths to address weaknesses)
