Although I am a Redskins fan, I come in peace! I am looking for a little help with a fantasy football decision and you folks obviously know your team and players inside and out. Please let me know what you think.
I know it’s only April, but our crazy commissioner makes it so we have to decide on our keepers by the end of the draft this weekend. Everyone hates it but he won’t budge and says that it mirrors the real NFL free agency period, which I do kind of agree with.
Long story short, I am having trouble deciding on which player to keep for the next THREE years in my 12 team, 3 keeper league. I need help choosing one of the following:
Since fantasy starting running backs seem to be few and far between these days, almost every productive back is currently being kept in my league, I am leaning towards Shady. It sounds like the eagles plan on running the ball a lot which is good but in turn that will also make him more susceptible to injury. And his recent concussion issues are making me hesitant.
Dez will obviously be an elite WR during the next three years and beyond. And he is with Julio and A.J. Green as the future of the position in the NFL. But like I said before, almost all starter worthy RB's are kept in my league so I will be hard pressed to find RB's in the draft or on the waiver wire.
Please let me know what you think in the poll and in the comment section.
*My 1st keeper is Aaron Rodgers (his tag will be in year 3/3 this season) and my other keeper was MJD (who's current tag will also be in year 3/3) but I traded him early in the season which means that I am not able to use my 3rd franchise tag again until after the end of this next season.
*Scoring is the same for all positions. It is a non-PPR league and we score 6 pts per TD and 1 pt per 10 rush/rec yards.
Thank you for any and all info.
