1PPR Keeper league. The following RB's are being kept: Peterson, Martin, Spiller, TRich, Charles, Morris, Ridley. That leaves:
Foster
Rice
Lynch
McCoy

SJax
Forte
Sproles
Gore
CJ
MJD
Murray

I am keeping Bryant and Cobb and I have the 5th pick in the 1st round and 1st pick in the 2nd round. If Calvin is taken in the first 4 picks, I am planning on taking whomever is left from Foster, Rice, Lynch, or McCoy (it'll probably be either Lynch or McCoy). However, if those 4 are gone, do I take Calvin and then hope to get one of the rest at my next pick which is pick #11? I then wouldn't have a pick until 25.

OR do I HAVE to take a RB at 5 no matter what and then follow it up with another RB at 11?

Basically I don't have a RB going into the draft and some teams already have two studs (One team has Martin and Spiller, another has Charles and drafts first taking Foster). Would you take Lynch/McCoy over Calvin in my position?

I'd take Forte if those 4 guys are gone. I bet someone takes Megatron though.

I'd probably take Calvin anyway, to build a sick WR corps, then try to trade one of them for a better RB than you will probably be able to draft.

Return the favor?

Forte in PPR. Reliable RB1 is key and I don't like the guys available at pick 11

So I am reading that if Calvin is there and the top 4 RB's aren't you'd pass on Calvin and take Forte? Eventhough one of the RB's in my next tier would be there for me in round 2?

I'll answer this but I need to know how bad were your RBs that you decided not to keep any of them? Either way if Calvin is somehow there in a 1pt PPR then you have to take him. Otherwise you take in order, Foster, Lynch, Rice, Forte, McCoy. I know I'm going to get yelled at for the Lynch pick, but TDs are worth 6 receptions and Lynch should get more than anybody else on that list.

I would take Rice or Foster over Calvin, but Calvin over McCoy and Lynch.

I'd take Megatron if he is there for you, and then build RB's from there. I expect rice and foster and Calvin gone though.....then it is McCoy, Lynch and Forte for you to pick from....

I had Trich but traded him away. If I kept him I would've lost my 3rd round pick and not been able to keep Dez. With the trade, I moved up 5 spots in the first round and 5 spots in the third round and was able to keep Dez for a 5th round pick. Since people are keeping guys that are costing them a third round pick, I essentially have the 3rd pick in the third round. I originally had the last pick in the first round so that gives me the first pick in the even rounds.

I am hoping to get a back @ 5 which will be just as good as Trich and then follow it up with SJax, Sproles, CJ, or Gore... if Calvin is there at 5 though, I would be tempted. Just wondering if Calvin was there and either McCoy or Lynch were there too... who would you take? I think if my top 4 RB's (Foster, Rice, Lynch, McCoy) are gone I think I will take Calvin over Forte or SJax.

McCoy, Lynch, Forte, but McCoy and Lynch are close. I don't like Lynch as he is pretty reliant on TDs and doesn't really catch much, but he does get points.

Current W/T/L: 6-0-4 (60%) across 5 leagues.

Yeah, that order. For me in PPR with these players it is:
Foster
Calvin
Rice/McCoy
Lynch
Forte
