    Who should I keep? 

    In our keeper league, I have the following prospects for this year’s roster. Please vote on your top TWO picks and hopefully it will help me decide. Thanks!

    Note: My first two keepers are Darren McFadden (round 6) and Mike Wallace (round 9), so I’m in pretty good position I have to believe. Also, this league is PPR with some scoring for return yards.

    Who should I keep as my 12th round pick?

    • Josh Freeman, QB, Buccaneers (49%, 56 Votes)
    • Owen Daniels, TE, Texans (19%, 22 Votes)
    • Lance Moore, WR, Saints (12%, 14 Votes)
    • Jacoby Ford, WR, Raiders (10%, 11 Votes)
    • Aaron Hernandez, TE, Patriots (10%, 11 Votes)

    Total Voters: 88

      Josh Freeman. Tough upcoming schedule, but I think you can at least ‘flip him’ since he’s got good trade value. Plus, he can get points with his feet too. That’s a good trait for a guy who can also sling the rock.

        Thanks man. I guess I’ll go with Freeman and lock him in as my QB2…at least I think. Owen Daniels is still calling out to me 🙂

      (12) Josh Freeman, QB, Buccaneers – I may have went Jacoby Ford until he broke his hand.

      All I know is that I picked up Josh Freeman a couple of days before my championship game (had a benched Orton and Big Ben on the roster and did not like either prospect) and he delivered the prize! Just sayin’…

        I was thinking Freeman, but then I read an article saying he was overrated and being drafted too high. Daniels is a thought, as it allows me to get a solid TE without having to worry about drafting one in the first 11 rounds.

          I think the 12th round for Freeman is just about right. I was not saying you should keep him, I was just bragging about my crystal ball, my rabbit’s foot, and my championship (delivered by Freeman’s SIX TD’s in W16).

      I’m thinking about switching my TE in a .5 PPR league.

      I was bullish on Moeaki b/c I think he’ll have a good 2nd year, but Gonzalez, Graham, Miller, Gronkowski, Keller, and Heap are available. Who should I go with? I can only keep one TE realistically (short benches)

      I ended up keeping Josh Freeman. Thanks for the input everyone!

      Speaking of keepers, I have a dilemna in a keeper league. I’m picking in the first 5 picks, everyone keeps 2 players. Trying to decide between Ray Rice (would keep in 3rd round), Blount (12th round), Jermichael Finley (11th round). Most likely Foster, Charles, McCoy, Mendenhall and Hillis will all be kept and not available in the draft. Anyone have any input?

    Lee Evans traded to Ravens 

    Confirmed by Adam Schefter. This is a major boost to Evans’ fantasy value; he’s one of the game’s best deep threats when he’s paired with a quality possession receiver, which Baltimore certainly has in Anquan Boldin.

    Hard to explain why the Bills thought this was a good deal when all they’re getting is a 4th-round pick in return. The rumor I’d been hearing was that the Bills were holding out for a 3rd-rounder, which supposedly had forced Carolina to pull out of the Evans sweepstakes.

    Big downgrade for Ryan Fitzpatrick, the rest of the Bills offense, and this Bills fan’s Friday afternoon.

    With Evans gone, the door’s wide open for Donald Jones, who Peter King was gushing about recently.
