    Advice for 5th pick in keeper league

    For everyone on the edge of their seats ... At #5 I had the choice of Swift or Moss. I went with Swift. At #17 I got Jeudy & at #20 I picked Hurst for TE. I added QB depth with Newton, landed Pittman and last pick was Mims. I'm hoping it's a good base to build on & grow.

    Advice for 5th pick in keeper league

    Hi, Been in a keeper league for close to 30 years. Always did fairly well but the past few years my life has gotten busier and last year I fell out of the playoffs for the first time in 10+ years (that sucked). I've never felt as unprepared as I do right now. It's non-ppr, roster of 20, cut down to 9 keepers before the draft. 12 teams. Our first rounds are almost exclusively drafting rookies. I have the 5th pick in a snake draft. After trading Brees last year for this year's 2nd rounder I also have the overall 17th and 20th picks. My keeper RBs are L Bell, A. Kamara & C. Edmonds. My WRs are M. Thomas, D. Slayton, & AJ Green (Should have dropped him 2 years ago!). I predict by the 5th pick I should have a shot at Cam Akers, D. Swift, Dobbins, or Moss. Most likely Dobbins or Moss. Who do you rank higher? What about Dillon? Or...if Jeudy or Lamb are available do I jump on them instead? I'm also holding out hope that Burrow will be available at 17 but not likely. My QBs now are D. Jones & S. Darnold. Thanks for the input!

    Trading Brees in Dynasty

    Wow! He's usually the first automatic keeper for me. With 12 teams and rosters of 20 players being cut down to 9, I don't see how Brees wouldn't be a keeper.

    Trading Brees in Dynasty

    I guess. I've given up picks in years past when making the push for the playoffs/suber-bowl. It's win now and worry about next year next year.

    Trading Brees in Dynasty

    Got a 2nd for Brees. It's a snake draft so depending where the other team finishes, it could be pick 13-18.

    Trading Brees in Dynasty

    Appreciate the reply. I agree, he's getting older. But just so we understand each other though...it's a 1st in a dynasty/keeper league where we keep 9 players, so round 1 is the equivalent of the 10th round in a re-draft league.

    Trading Brees in Dynasty

    I play in a 12 team Dynasty/Keeper hybrid league. Roster size is 20 spots. Pretty much standard scoring, 1 QB starts...Prior to the draft we cut down to 9. The draft is then 11 rounds with all cut players and rookies in the pool. The big name rookies tend to go first but there are usually a couple big names that no one could trade away and/or could not be kept after cutting down to 9, so those players are likely scooped in the late 1st or early 2nd. This year, my team fell apart. The first time I am not making the playoffs in 10 years. Have had Brees since he was a rookie, but his time is fading and I am hoping Daniel Jones can be my QB for the future (Mariotta and Rosen were supposed to be my future too...see how that worked out ). Anyway, I've put Brees on the block and am expecting a 1st, or at the very least a 2nd rounder. So far, I've only received an offer of a 3rd...since "sweetened" with the 3rd and Rivers. I don't care about Rivers...he's not my answer either. Am I out of line to think Brees is worth a 1st in this format? Considering the person wanting him is a serious contender for the title? Thoughts?

    FU week 10

    F me for all the stupid decisions I've made this year & all the dumb luck. For the 1st time in about 10 years I won't be heading to the playoffs in my keeper/dynasty league. Won't bore you with all the details but by far the biggest blunder was picking Darwin Thompson over Devin Singletary. Maybe followed by holding AJ Green rather than cutting his worthless arse! FU!!!!

    AJ Green Is it time

    I am so pissed at myself. In my keeper/dynasty league I've had him since his rookie year. I've been down on him the past couple seasons with his injuries/shortened seasons, and considered dropping him before this years draft. Was going to make a clean break and let some other schmuck deal with him. But did I? NOOOOO! I kept him since he was going to be back by week 6. Instead I became the schmuck who is dealing with him. So, all though this is the wrong thread...FU green!

    F.U. Week 4

    Classic! Made me LOL for real! I've been lurking here forever but signed up just for this post. Of course, that was Friday and I didn't get any actual account activation until this morning so the whole spontaneity of it all is moot now...so FU to the spam-bots that delayed my account activation! Also, FU to OJ Howard, useless oaf! ...And my entire team in general. Through 4 weeks I have a TOTAL of 4 touchdowns...4. Only 4 f'in TDs in 4 weeks. How is that possible? (Not including QB -Brees & Foles, & now my dynamic duo of Dalton and D. Jones. This year is done! FU 2 me!!!
