Rasilio

Deep Dynasty league with IDP Keeper help

Recommended Posts

I'm in a 18 team Dynasty league that has 40 man rosters.

Starting lineups are

QB, RB, WR, WR, WR, WR/TE, TE, O Flex, K

DL, DL, DL, DL, LB, LB, LB, CB, CB, S, S

We are transitioning from a free league to a prize (money) league and part of that we are having a Competative rebalance draft.

I get to protect 10 players initially, then for each player drafted from my team I can protect 3 more

My Roster is

QB - Peyton Manning, Tony Romo

RB - Willie Parker, Joseph Addai, Thomas Jones, Leon Washington, JJ Arrington

WR - TJ Houshmanzdeh, Bernard Berrian, Brandon Jones, Davd Givens , Eric Parker, Michael Clayton, Brandon Lloyd, Randall Williams, Brian Finneran, Rashied Davis

TE - Ben Watson, Chris Baker

K - Neil Rackers

DL - Patrick Kearney, Justin Smith, Vonnie Holliday, Marcus Spears, Matthias Kiwinuka, Bobby McCray

LB - Demorrio Williams, Marcus Washington, Scott Shanle, Lemar Marshall, Teddy Lehman, Gerald Hayes

CB - Rashean Mathis, Madieu Williams, Fred Thomas, Brian Kelly

S - Dwight Smith, Nick Collins, Brodney Pool, Omar Stourmeir

Scoring is Equally balanced between Yardage and TD's on offense with 1 point per reception added in, on Defense Sacks and Tackles are the key stats, especially Tackles.

So who do I keep?

Manning, Romo, Parker, Adai, Houshmanzadeh, and Berrian are locks.

That leaves 4 slots for Thomas Jones, Ben Watson, Patrick Kearney, Justin Smith, Gerald Hayes, Marcus Washington, Rashean Mathis, and Madieu Williams

T.Jones, J. Smith, Haynes and Washington. Thats who I'd protect. I'm in a IDP Dynasty league this year for the first time, so I'm going through similar stuff.

Would you really protect Thomas Jones?

I mean I know talentwise he is clearly worth protecting, however look at the league setup. We start 1 RB and 1 O Flex. That means Romo and Whichever of Parker/Addai is not the RB slot will occupy the O Flex slot most weeks.

Realistically barring injury Jones wouldn't appear in my starting lineup more than 3 or 4 times a year.

Is it better to have the extra Offensive depth when more than likely he won't even play in 1/3rd of the games or do I keep another Defensive superstar like Rashean Mathis, Madieu Williams, or Patrick Kearney who will start for me 15 + weeks a year.

I didn't see that, but Thomas Jones has value in a 18 team league, so I'd keep him or try to trade him, but like I said again, this is my first year in a IDP league.
