In a Standard 12 man league where each team gets to keep 2 players for up to 3 years.  Currently my keepers are Antonio Brown and Mike Evans with the option of keeping Kenyan Drake or Aaron Rodgers with different strategies I could take during the draft.  I draft 2nd in a draft that goes 1-12, 1-12, 1-12 just like the NFL Draft.  What scenario do you like better?  

 

1.)  Keep Antonio Brown and Mike Evans, watch Saquon Barkley get drafted ahead of me, and pick up the next remaining best RB (Mixon, McKinnon, Henry.... this question is already in another thread).

 

2.)  Keep 2 out of Kenyan Drake/Aaron Rodgers/Mike Evans, give Antonio Brown to the pick ahead of me, and select Saquon Barkley with the #2 pick.

 

Elite RB's are gold in a standard league and although Barkley is the next GOD of fantasy football in a lot of eyes, he is still unproven on the NFL level.  Antonio Brown is more than likely the top WR in fantasy every year.  Which option do you like better?

 

I am always scheming throughout the off season.....  Thank you and Leave a Link

Good question. This will be my 2nd year starting with Evans & Brown as my WRs. I can keep them this whole fantasy season along with having them start my season next year. If I dont trade them by the trade deadline of that year then they go back to the draft pool like everyone else.

That's a tough one.

I don't play standard as keeping AB is a no brainer in PPR. Would the guy ahead of you possibly trade back somehow without you giving up Brown? Like you keep AB, trade one of your other 3 with the #2 for the #1 overall?

I wish we could do trades. Only way I can get Barkley is by giving up Brown as he would be taken with the first pick. Keeping AB is a no brainer, but if Barkley turns out to be a new an improved Zeke or DJ or AP I was just seeing if the sacrifice was worth it. Is it worth the risk I guess is the question once you get down to the meat and potatoes : )

I'd probably stick with AB. Barkley may end up being very special but Brown already is.
