Need to pick between 2 guys...

Postby cmizelle » Sat Aug 29, 2020 4:16 pm

Keeper league, keep 8 players from the previous year with no draft pick implications based on who you keep.

My team is loaded but I'm wrestling with my last keeper.

Its PPR, and the starting lineup requirements are: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, W/T, W/R

My obvious keepers are:
Patrick Mahomes (KC, QB)
Ezekiel Elliott (Dal, RB)
Saquon Barkley (NYG, RB)
Dalvin Cook (Min, RB)
DeAndre Hopkins (Ari, WR)
Tyreek Hill (KC, WR)
DJ Moore (Car, WR)

For my last keeper, I'm wrestling between Keenan Allen and Zach Ertz. Allen is much higher ranked but I don't know that I want to go into the draft without a TE. All the TEs better than Ertz will be kept and even a few ranked lower than Ertz. I'd love to trade one of them, but its a very hard league to trade in.

Thoughts?

Given the kept TEs and the fact that your team is stacked. I think you'd be fine taking the value hit and keeping ertz

You would really hamstring your shot at winning with a stacked team if you let your TE spot fall off hard by not keeping Ertz

More piling on, Ertz pretty easily.

I would rather have Ertz than Allen in a vacuum. The fact that you're loaded at WR and would never use Allen only adds to that, as does the fact that you'd be looking at a significant downgrade at TE without Ertz.

You're the favorite to win it all and Ertz helps your starting lineup a LOT more.
