I am in a 12 team PPR Keeper League where we can keep 2 players (1 per positon and no players drafted in rounds 1-3 last year). I have the second pick in the draft which I plan on taking Doug Martin. We start 2 rb's and 3 wr's. There is no flex position. My other keeper is Danny Amendola. My question is who should I keep?:
Shane Vereen for a 13th round pick
Steven Ridley for a 3rd round pick
I know from a value stand point it seems like Vereen is a no brainer. I guess my concern is that Ridley is still the #1 Rb in New England and he would be my #2 RB starter on my team. He has looked great in the preseason.
At this point, it seems like if I kept Vereen, he would be a RB #3 unless Ridley gets hurt. I don't know how confident I would feel consistently starting Vereen on a weekly basis at this point. Last year he averaged only like 5-8 carries per game but this year he will have a bigger role in the passing offense with Hernandez and Welker gone. If I keep Vereen, I could also draft another RB in round 2 or 3. I would hopefully be looking at the following running backs as my #2 RB: DeMarco Murray, Frank Gore, Darren McFadden, Leveon Bell, Darren McFadden.
Ridley seems safer but Vereen seems better value which makes my decision tough.
Note: Keepers aren't due for another week but this is who I anticipate being kept by other owners: Reggie Bush, Jordy Nelson, Ryan Broyles, Russel Wilson, RG3, Victor Cruz, AJ Green, Eric Decker, CJ Spiller, Peyton Manning, Steve Smith, Kaepernick, Garcon, Matthews, Alfred Morris, Reggie Wayne, Daryl Richardson, and Gronkowski
