Harvin, Crabtree & PItta (2 Viewers)

In a keeper league with standard scoring and roster requirements (non PPR), how deep would your roster have to be before you would draft one of these guys based on their potential for next season? Which do you value most long-term?

I think Harvin will be a monster next year and forward. I'd say he's the one. Followed by Crabtree, then Pitta.

They aren't on the same level IMO. Harvin and Crab, sure. Pitta, not exactly. I would wait to see how the TE position plays out this year. Lots of potential at the position. I think outside of Gronk, V Davis and Graham, we will be looking at a very different top 10 going into next year.

I have Harvin in a league and there's always something going on with him. Before it was the migraines, and he didn't miss much game time, but now there's this... I'm leaning towards Crabtree right now. He looked great when I saw their late season games last year.

Are any of these guys expected back this year?
Both Harvin and Crabtree should be back working with the team sometime around Thanksgiving, and could potentially get worked back into the starting lineup over the final 4 weeks or so.

Harvin and Crabtree are much, much more valuable in keeper leagues. Back in April, Harvin was a 2nd rounder and Crabtree was a 3rd rounder in dynasty startups. Even at his best, Pitta was a mediocre dynasty TE. Add his injury to the mix, and I don't think I'd be all that tempted to keep him in a 12-team league with 5 keepers (or a 10-team league with 6 keepers).

12 teams, 3 keepers per, 18 man rosters...I just picked up Harvin at 1.3% of budget at the end of an auction. I chose to avoid the $2 bids that others did late to have enough to win him outright at nomination that late.

If you are looking at stashing next year, don't forget about Maclin. 16-team 20 rd keeper here... .planning on snagging Maclin in the 20th round.

At what point would you draft Harvin or Crabtree? After you have all your starters, back up QB, 1 or 2 reserve RBs and WRs?

If I recall correctly, Maclin's probably gone from the Eagles. This was the last year of his contract, and I'm not sure what team would be willing to invest in him as a starter given his mediocre history and his recent injury. Decent late flier, but not anywhere near the level of a Harvin/Crabtree.

It's going to depend a lot on roster size and how many players you keep, but I'm all in on both this year. I did a 12-team dynasty startup earlier this year, and I took Crabtree at 6.01. When Harvin got injured, I traded Pierre Garcon (my 8th round pick) and next year's 2nd rounder for him. In a true dynasty format, I think both are so talented that I'm grabbing them even if I'm not done filling out my starting lineup.

In leagues where fewer players are kept, or where keeping a player incurs a cost (such as a pick from the round the player was originally drafted in), I'd have both Crabtree and Harvin lower. The fewer players kept and the higher the cost, the lower I'd have them. I know you're trying to keep your questions broadly applicable, but if you give your specific league parameters, I can give a better answer.
