Im just looking for opinions from you guys about my options in the draft we are having in a couple weeks. Very competitive PPR keeper league that has been running for about 7 years now. We dont have to give up draft picks for keepers and can keep guys as long as we want. So there are 30 guys out of the draft.

We start QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, K, DEF
6 Bench players

My keepers are: Aaron Rodgers, LeSean McCoy, Andre Johnson

I have the 9th pick of non snake draft. I cant predict who will for sure be there but the guys i think could be there are..........

McFadden
Murray
T-Rich
S-Jax

Mike Wallace
Nicks
Steve Smith
Jordy
V-Jax

Gronk
Graham

Those are basically the top guys at those positions and someone better could fall but this is who i think could be there when i pick based on past drafting and others needs. Thanks guys

I would go for Murray, then DMC. If they are gone I'd go Graham. Murray was such a beast last year and was only a rookie.

I have the 9th pick of non snake draft. I cant predict who will for sure be there but the guys i think could be there are..........

McFadden (no-always broke)
Murray (a possibility, Dallas will probably over-use and end his career early, ex. Barber, Choice, etc.)
T-Rich (PPR?, will get carries either way, best long term RB prospect of those listed, WCO shennanigans gone if Holmgren goes)
S-Jax (would work for a year, maybe, lotta miles on those legs)

Mike Wallace (long term-quite possibly turns into another Pittsburgh reciever that underperforms somewhere else after his contract expires)
Nicks (best WR option so far)
Steve Smith (great one year option, dude's name isn't Lazarus Long however) (LL = Heinlein reference)
Jordy (only one ball to go around in GB, possible 'oft injured' label in his future)
V-Jax (who's throwing him the ball again?, new TB offense purported to be ground and pound, etc.)

Gronk (NE offense is as unpredictable as Shanahan's)
Graham (will last at least as long as Brees does)


Opinions above given with long term retention keeper possibilities and PPR in mind.

For one year with players given in OP:
RB
1 Murray
2 Richardson
3 Jackson
4 McFadden (on my never draft list, ever)

WR
1 Steve Smith (yeah, call me Homer, wanna fight about it?)
2 Nicks
3 Nelson (top 3 are very close IMO)
4 Wallace (possible contract butt-hurtedness, new offensive system)
5 Jackson (would find another option, can be a diva, run oriented offense, it's Tampa Freakin' Bay, etc)

TE
1 Graham (also like Vernon Davis mid rounds)
2 Gronk (Pats too unpredictable, Brady has many new options and a new/old OC)

Whoever you pick you're going to want to have in the future.

That being said...

My choice would be either TRich or Graham. TRIch is built like ADP with MJD's height. He's going to be a beast for years to come. It does suck he's in the AFC North, BUT...I think their offense will improve and he's it. Seeing how this is a PPR, Graham is probably going to go high in your draft. Doubt you'll get him, but he's a TE that gives you WR1 numbers. Looking at your roster I don't see flex positions, but knowing this guy is getting you money at that spot in a position that's extremely deep (WR), I'd say he'd be my number one target.

Gronk is appealling, but look back last year. Gronk would get his, but Hernandez would outperform. Graham was most consistent I believe. I would not bother with a WR...as I said...very deep.

Awesome feedback here, and thanks for adding the keeper point. When drafting in this league i am always thinking about the future a little more than other leagues. For example, I had peyton a couple years ago in his prime and i drafted rodgers in the second round (keep in mind its like the 5th round with 3 keeper) and everyone looked at me weird bc it was before he started going off. I then traded peyton for S-jax and got to keep rodgers through these great years and also ended up with a solid PPR rb.

I think I like Jordy, Wallace and Nicks the best out of the WR's. I agree on Vjax, terrible situation but you never know and I love Smitty but I just try to stay away from the panthers bc i dont want to jinx them (i know its dumb) but they also get way overdrafted bc of all the homers in the league. Jordy scares me bc of how they throw it around and Nicks is always hurt and then Wallace is "holding out" to go along with Bens arm so idk about any of them.

I think DMC would be my RB out of that group bc he has the talent to be best in the NFL but i understand his injuries suck. Sjax is just getting up there and Murray has the same durability issues. I just dk if i can go trich that early in clevelands offense.

Both TE's are gonna be solid but i guess this will come down to a gametime decision.

I would look at this and most likely take McFadden or TE's if they are there. Getting the TE is good to get #1 WR production out of a TE. I am guessing you are not really looking to add a keeper unless you are wantitng to replace the often injured Andre? So i would take who you think will be BPA
