    Post My "Way Too Early" Keeper Problem

    I'm in a 2QB, 0.5 PPR league of 10 managers.

    We only keep 4 players and I have more than a few to think about keeping and/or trading.

    Let me know your ideas as to what you would do. Who would you keep, who would you trade?

    Worthy Players:

    Russell Wilson
    Matt Ryan
    Leonard Fournette
    Alvin Kamara
    Derek Henry
    Antonio Brown
    Julio Jones
    12 Team NHL Keeper League -- H2H, Keep 4

    C: Crosby
    C: Trocheck
    LW: Schenn
    LW: Ovechkin
    RW: Boeser
    RW: T. Johnson
    D: Burns

    D: Ristolainen
    D: Krug

    G: M. Murray
    G: H. Lundqvist

    Bench: Bernier (G), Oshie (RW), OEL (D), Oshie (RW) Geuntzal (LW/C)

    Wow tough calls.

    In a single QB league it's Kamara, Fournette, Brown, Jones without a second thought.

    2QBs complicates things though - you might want to sub Fournette (in 0.5 PPR I prefer Kamara/Brown/Jones over him) out for Wilson or Ryan, but it depends on your league. How many QBs do you expect to be kept?

    In summary - I'd keep Kamara, Brown and Jones for sure. It's then between Fournette and a QB. Would be brutal to lose Fournette but it's scary going into the draft in a 2QB league with none on your roster.

    Maybe shop Fournette around and keep a QB?

    Russell Wilson - Not a great year last year - redraftable
    Matt Ryan - not a great year last year - redraftable
    Leonard Fournette - MUST KEEP!
    Alvin Kamara MUST KEEP
    Derek Henry
    Antonio Brown - MUST KEEP
    Julio Jones - MUST KEEP

    You have 4 players that are like first or second round targets in fantasy drafts... so those are the 4 to keep!

    Sometimes the simplest advice is the best advice.

    Either of you care to weigh in on my own football keeper situation while we are at it? Football posts don't get much traction this time of year...

    1 pt PPR, start 2 RBs and 4 WRs.

    Keep 5 of 6: Zeke, Kamara, David Johnson, OBJ, Davante Adams, Josh Gordon.

    I understand Gordon is universally ranked the lowest of these 6 and comes with plenty of risk, but his upside is still there and in a start 4 WR, PPR format, there is a premium on WRs.

    Would you keep J.Gordon and try and trade an RB? Or just keep the first 5 and move Gordon for a draft pick?

    Honestly trade Flash and an RB for a better WR, or else this.

    As much as I?d like to trust Gordon (I do think he?ll have a good season if healthy), your other players are in better situations. That?s a seriously good group of keepers you have.

    While I agree that whose players are more valuable... This is a 2QB league were talking about, and elite QB's are very difficult to attain. I consider Wilson to be among the top fantasy QBs available.

    The most trouble I had was between Kamara and Fournette. The Kamara/Ingram split has me a bit worried- I know it worked fantastic last year, but teams might catch on... Fournette is a workhorse and did very well even while missing 3 games.
