I know it’s only April, but our crazy commissioner makes it so we have to decide on our keepers by the end of the draft this weekend. Everyone hates it but he won’t budge and says that it mirrors the real NFL free agency period, which I do kind of agree with.
Long story short, I am having trouble deciding on which player to keep for the next THREE years in my 12 team, 3 keeper league. I need help choosing one of the following:
Since fantasy starting running backs seem to be few and far between these days, almost every productive back is currently being kept in my league, I am heavily leaning towards Shady. It sounds like the eagles plan on running the ball a lot which is good but in turn that will also make him more susceptible to injury. And his recent concussion issues make me think of Jahvid Best, which would obviously suck if he gets blown up in the next year or two and I had to keep a vegetable on my team until 2016.
I know Dez will be an elite WR during the next three years but I will be angry every Sunday that I root for a Cowboy like I was all last year. And I feel like there are much more productive WR’s than RB’s, fantasy wise, currently in the NFL.
And lastly, if anyone can make a case for Forte than please let me know why you would choose him in the comments section. He is currently my last option due to injury concerns and crappy OL play.
Thank you for any and all info.
*My 1st keeper is Aaron Rodgers (his current tag is on year 3/3) and my other keeper was MJD (who's current tag is also in year 3/3) but I traded him early in the season which means that I am not able to use my 3rd franchise tag again until after end of this next season.
