    Default Drop one?

    Hello All,

    I have Rodgers... in the case that he does not play which of these four would you drop to add Rivers?

    Keelan Cole
    Sonny Michel
    Kerryon Johnson
    Jamison Crowder

    I'd probably drop Crowder. It's tough to see him winning you your league in any capacity. Johnson and Michel seem as though they'll be shared duty backs at best. I don't think you need to lose sleep dropping any of them, but I'd probably ditch Crowder.
    All trade questions are for a 30 team keeper league with 27 man rosters. Scoring for skaters are accumulated from points (ES, PP, SH) and plus/minus rating.

    Definitely Crowder. Michel has first round pedigree and could easily find himself as the #1 at some point this season. As for Kerryon Johnson, he likely will be Detroit's bell cow at some point this season. You definitely want to hold on to these type of RBs if you can afford the bench space, because it's far easier to find replacement receivers than runners.

    I don't know your settings, but if you get Rivers you may want to see if you can package up Rodgers and a player to get a top 10 player at the WR/RB position. Rodgers is clearly better than Rivers, but the difference is not going to be huge. The Chargers offence is for real, and they have a good schedule this year.

    My two thoughts.
    10-team Keeper. Everyone keeps 12 + 1 G + 3 "young keepers" (players with less than 164 NHL games played), and 1G. Points for G (2), A (2), PIM (.2), Hit (.2), Blk (.2) SHP(1), W(4), SO(8) Must dress 4C, 4LW, 4RW, 6D, 2G

    C - Tavares, Backstrom, Kuznetsov, Eichel, Turris
    LW - E. Kane, Landeskog, Kreider, J. Staal, Sedin, Vanek, Dvorak
    RW - Wheeler, Stone, Niederreiter, Vrbata, Silfverberg,
    D - Karlsson, Klingberg, Suter, Larsson, Phaneuf, Markov, Sekera, Edler, Stecher, Orlov, Theodore
    G - Anderson, Niemi, Murray, Mrazek, Howard, Markstrom

    My all time favourites:

    Crowder for me as well. Doubt you play him this early on and then he has a Week 4 bye. So hopefully he can stay under the radar and then you scoop him up after.

    I'd drop Crowder, but depending on your league, KJ might be the better drop. Every year we say "Oh this RB will fix the Lions running woes" but it never does because they will always default to throwing the ball. Crowder might be the better fantasy player this yr.

    But for this week, this early in the season, I can see why you'd drop Crowder. I'm 50/50 split on Crowder and KJ.

    You'll have a better idea of where Rogers is at (if it's longer than a week) and with bye week 4 I highly doubt someone scoops him for 1 week and stashes him.
