Warning! This is more complicated then a simple pick 3! Pro level advice requested!
Quick Background: This is a keeper league where players have to re-enter the draft every 3 seasons and 1st round picks are non-keeper eligible. Last year my team finished the regular season with only 1 loss, but I lost in the playoffs.
Format: 12 team 0.5 PPR league, 4 bench, 1 IR.
My potential pool for keepers: Tom Brady, Alshon Jeffrey, Jerick McKinnon, Zach Ertz, Demariyus Thomas (notable non-eligible Devonta Freeman, Leonard Fournette)
Draft night: 11th & 14th overall draft picks
Projected Keepers of team holding 12th/13th pick: Doug Baldwin, Michael Crabtree, Tevin Coleman
Projected top 9 picks (no chance of them falling): Gurley, Bell, Elliot, Johnson, Brown, Hopkins, Beckham, Barkley, Jones
Projected players available for pick 10 onward (Due to keepers the drop off is very steep after Evans): Fournette, Green, Freeman, Gronkowski, Evans, Hilton, Cooper, Kelce, A. Rodgers
I was mentally locked in with McKinnon, Ertz & Thomas as keepers but I am falling off the McKinnon wagon hard after his injury. With Jeffrey also banged up that would leave Brady as my only viable option to replace him. Further clouding this is the fact that I pick 11th & 14th in the draft and I am very much not a fan of drafting Hilton or Cooper, which would leave Gronk, Kelce and Rodgers as the only other potential players I would choose at 14th if the draft goes the way I see, all horrible fits with if I keep Brady/Ertz.
Keep McKinnon, Ertz, Thomas.
With all of the mid tier RB essentially not available for this draft I am as of right now leaning towards selecting Fournette or Freeman at pick 11.
At pick 14 if Green, Fournette, Freeman, & Evans are gone (strongly suspect they will be) I just go with Aaron Rodgers.
Which 3 players would you keep & which 2 players would you target at 11th overall & 14th overall?
