Im in a keeper league and dont know who to keep so im looking for some help. A few things to know about this league is that it is pretty close to standard scoring, its not ppr, and we use defensive Players instead of team defense, 2 dl 2 lb 2 db... We are allowed to keep 8 players an i narrowed it down to these players but cant decide my final 8...open to any and all suggestions

BREES QB NO
BUSH RB MIA?????
BOLDIN WR BAL
LANDRY DB WAS
COLE DL PHI
HARVIN WR MIN
MENDENHALL RB PIT
KELSAY DL BUF
9 LAURINAITIS LB STL
10 DANSBY LB MIA
11 DHANI JONES LB FA

hey Ronn, out of the players you have mentioned, these are the 8 I would suggest you keep.

Brees - Its a no brainer. He is a top 5 Fantasy QB and football is becoming more of a passing game than before.
Boldin - This is a risk or reward keeper. Who else is flacco gonna throw to? with that said the opposing defenses can double team this guy often.
Landry - A tackling Machine. enough said.
Cole - With even better secondary and babin joining him on the other side, he is lined up for a great season in sacks.
Harvin - According to me he is the only legitimate deep threat in their team. I dont even consider berrian a threat in taking away from Harvin.
Mendenhall - for lack of a better RB on your team. Bush is an attractive option, but with daniel thomas the likely starter come day one, bush should be only third RB in most leagues.
Kelsay - good DL's are tough to find
Dansby - I wouldnt mind either this guy or Laurinitis coz both are good against the run. Dansby is a bit better in passing situations.

Good Luck this year.

Do you have to keep 8 or is 8 the most you can keep ? Some leagues depending on the number you keep depends how many picks you get early in the draft. For now I am going to assume all teams keep 8.

First 6 are easy:

Brees - No brainer, top 5 QB
Boldin - Not in the upper group of WR's but a solid guy with an improving QB
Cole - One of the top 5 DL's in IDP fantasy play
Landry - One of the top 5 DB's in IDP fantasy play
Laurinaitis - Tackling machine, should finish top 5 LB
Mendenhall - Top 10 RB's don't grow on trees.

Next most likely, Harvin, will be the #1 WR for the Vikings and if McNabb can at least be steady should be a solid WR, risk is if they fall out of it and turn to Ponder at QB which would mean more check downs and dump offs to start.

I honestly don't have a 8th I like to keep. You have some studs on defense but is that really the best you had to keep on offense ?

Hey Ronn,

well I wouldn't keep a DB, even though Landry had huge stats and all, the position is just not predictable enough there are ALWAYS good ones you can pick up from the waiver wire, since there are so many of them.

I would keep:

Brees, Mendy, Boldin, Harvin, Kelsay, Cole, Dansby, Laurinaitis...

Just my two cents. Good luck
