Round specific keepers, draft strategy

Recommended Posts

I'm in a 12 team PPR league, 6 pts per QB TD

I finished 2nd in the consolation bracket last year, so I am awarded the 2nd overall pick this year.

That said, there are plenty of top players being kept for great value. 

My keepers:

Edelman (will be my 6th rd pick)

Kamara (will be my 8th rd pick)

Golladay (9th)

Aaron Jones (10th)

Great value there obviously. I figured I'd take whichever remains between Barkley and Zeke (or DJ/CMC if my mind changes) but given that it's PPR, and I'm already pretty solid at RB, is it worth taking Hopkins at #2? It feels crazy, but that's what keeper leagues do to you. Alternatively I could try to trade down to #4 (Kamara and DJ are being kept, so Saquon, Zeke, CMC, Hopkins are the only guys I'd consider at #4). Assuming #4 doesn't want to trade up, am I crazy to take Hopkins #2?

not crazy to take Nuk at #2, especially given your Kamara/Jones keeper situation.  particularly if other top WRs are being kept.  trying to trade down is a good idea if you are content with getting any of those 4 guys (which you should be).  if the guy with the #4 pick is hot after one of those RBs, you might be able to pull it off.

How many RB/WR/flex do you play? If 2/2/1 I still prefer Barkley/Zeke at #2.

I would still rake the RB, but it isn't crazy at all. Nuk is a beast

Sorry, I should have clarified.

2 RB, 3 WR, 1 flex

I’d still take Barkley or Zeke. You are then pretty set at RB and can work on WRs. I see a lot of nice value WRs this year.

Take either a RB or if you're a gambling man? Mahomes he will out score every RB/WR/TE

Mahomes is being kept. I also wouldn't touch any QB before R4-5 because there are legitimately 16 guys I'd be comfortable with as a starting QB. Plus, Hill's looming suspension is too big a question mark. This is a different conversation if we're talking 2QB leagues.

I'd take Barkley but taking Nuke isn't crazy. Thanks for the help with mine.
