Keeper questions, advice needed please

Postby Vtfanatic » Fri Aug 03, 2018 8:58 am

I need some help in who to keep in a 10 team PPR auction keeper league. $200 draft budget where the players kept will have $$ removes from budget. Keeper values are $5 greater than price players were drafted last year. Here are my choices and I get to keep 2:

David Johnson at 62
Dalvin Cook at 31
Davante Adams at 18

Originally leaning towards Adams and Cook but the more I look at it I am wondering if Johnson and Cook are not the choice given the depth at WR this year. Advice appreciated.

Adams at half the price of Cook is a steal. He should definitely be on your keepers list. 23 next year, 28 year after could continue to look like good options

I actually like that setup for a keepers league to be honest, with set amount of auction money and you can hold your guys for $5 more each year. Makes hitting on a guy when he's cheap really pay off for a few years but not completely eliminate him from the pool

I think you have to keep Adams at that price. I would then lean Cook. I think of it this way, if all three players went back into the FA pool, could you get Adams for 23? I doubt it. Could you get Cook for 36? Unlikely. Could you get DJ for less than 67? I would imagine you had the greatest chance of this happening, particularly if people are using up substantial portions of their budgets on keepers.

I'm with you, keeping Cook and Adams. DJ at more than 25% of your budget isn't worth it when you can keep Adams and Cook for less than half his $$$.

Definitely Adams and Cook, you are getting them under their current auction values. Adams is generally going in the $30-35 range and Cook in the $45-50 range. Plus you might actually be able to get DJ for less than $67, he went for $57 in a recent auction I did. I think in general because of the injury, he is going a bit cheaper than last year.

I play in a similar setup and would also go Adams and Cook. Different leagues are different, but si bet you can get DJ for his keeper price or at least close to it. Can't say the same about the other 2...

Adams is a must keep at that price, he'll probably end up near double that price, and I think Dalvin is a solid keeper at that price too.

Should I be worried that Cook has yet to take the field and that the Vikings OL appears to currently be a mess?

They looked pretty good week 1, no so much week 2. Hard to fault them going against the Jags and only having about a month since they lost their O-line coach unexpectedly.
Totally reasonable to feel that way. I think that line is built for Cook, so we should have a better idea after their game today since he is apparently going to take the field.
