Thank you for your inquiry; you seem like the type of manager we would welcome. Unfortunately, the replacement has already been made.
However, I will post another reply in effort to contact you if another opportunity is made available. Typically we lose one manager a year on average. If you are still interested, send me your email address at the BEGINNING of NEXT SEASON and I'll be sure to put you at the top of the list.
BTW: I also run a Dynasty Baseball League if you're interested. Again, I won't know until the start of baseball season if we will have any openings and there is already a waiting list.

Challenging league with interactive managers needs replacement for slug manager that ran team into ground.
Settings too complex for newbies: IDP, PPR, FAAB, Draft Auctions, etc.
Check out scoring and settings BEFORE inquiring. League name is "ez_pz" (ID: 458340) and is publicly viewable.

Depends on your positional needs and league settings but in standard league (non-PPR) RBs will generate more FPnts than WRs.
Jags suck & Shorts is WR3 at best if Henne QB -- forget it if whatshisname (Gabbert?)
FJ solid RB2 while Spiller underperforming.
I'd keep FJ and hunt out a rookie under the radar like the kid from the Chargers -- Rivers is on fire and their WR1 is out for season (Royal was a fluke).
To be fair, you're S-O-L this year. Use it as a teaching moment so that you don't f-up next year.
More succinctly, it doesn't matter when or how a player is picked up. You're only going to "keep" the player you deem most valuable; ergo, first round.
To make things more interesting consider Auction Draft and FAAB options next year.
Been runnin' leagues a long time . . . if everyone HAS TO "keep" one player it doesn't matter where in the draft you assign him as long as it is the same round for each team, e.g., everyone's first round is their KEEPER, or everyone's last round, etc. (1st is easiest for Commish setup).
However, if a manager can opt out of "keeping" a player than those that do select a player that is valuable enough to "keep;" ostensibly, that "kept" player is valuable enough to be assigned a first round slot.
Things get more complicated if you allow multiple "keeps" or trading of draft picks.
Regardless of when a player is picked up by a team, next season's Keeper pool will automatically be populated by end of season rosters, i.e., a manager can only pick a player to "keep" if that player was on that manager's team at the end of the previous season.
