Brown, Ellington and Jeffery seem like the clear picks out of that group unless you're really bullish on Joique Bell.

So far the cheat sheets in finding are valuing Ellington around 11-14 only, which is also about where Bell is.... Matt Ryan might be a market value pick at $4, with upside past that.

Definitely in on Brown and Jeffrey though, so yea mainly just determining if there is a use for that 3rd spot.

We discussing oath keepers?

Brown, Jeffery and Ryan are easily the best bargains there. #1 WR, plus another top 10 WR (who could go up as the Bears #1), and a top 7-8 QB all for $27? You can't beat that, even if you have to turn around and just pay $66 for Charles in the draft.

Ok, 1 keeper. Lose the pick in the round he was drafted in.

Emanuel Sanders- lose 4th round pick. I overdrafted him last year because my league was so WR happy early in the draft, and it paid off big time. But I pick 10th this year, and would lose the 39th overall pick, which is right about where he would go. But it looks like there will be at least 5 WRs kept (including Beckham, Landry, Hopkins). PPR league with 100 catch potential, 9th most points last year, and #5 WR.

Lamar Miller- lose 8th round pick. Ended up as the 9th highest scoring RB last year, but did it kinda quietly. Only two 100 yard games last year, and 1 of them didn't matter (Week 17), and only 7 TDs in the fantasy season. Only 13.5 carries per game, and Miami drafted a RB this year. Never fully hands him the reins.

We started QB, RB, WR, WR, TE, RB/WR last year. But changed to QB, RB, RB/WR, WR, WR, TE, WR/TE. So, can start up to 4 WRs. Picking 10th, I should be able to get a top 7 WR and RB (coming back around on the snake), so which is better?

Miller. While not a stud, he's a solid #2 and you're getting decent value. Plus Ajayi hasn't done anything and is buried on the depth chart. Miller will get his touches. Though he lacks a ton of upside, he has a solid floor. You aren't getting much value with Sanders.

Pick 4. 12 team 0.5ppr start QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR, TE, Flex (WR, RB, TE). I pick 11th. So towards the end of odd number rounds and early in even number rounds.

Luck (3rd)
Ingram (6th)
Ellington (9th)
Jordan Matthews (10th)
Kelce (11th)
Latavius Murray (11th)

Pick 3. 0.5 PPR. Standard league other than that.

TY Hilton 4th round
Lamar Miller 6th round
Mark Ingram 10th round
Ben Roethlisberger 10th round
AJ Green 1st round

12 team auction league, standard ESPN scoring with bonuses for TD rushes or receptions over 40 yards, QBs who throw for more than 300 yards in a game and RBs/WRs who go over 100 yards rushing/receiving. Lineup goes: QB, two RB, two WR, TE, RB/WR/TE flex.

Below is who I am thinking of keeping and what it would cost out of our $200 budget:

Roethlisberger - $2 (I've been bit in this league the last few years on QBs going for more than I had anticipated/budgeted so keeping Roethlisberger at this price is appealing. I plan on going cheap on 2-3 guys for my QB rotation, maybe something like Ben/Eli/Tannehill)

DeAndre Hopkins - $4 (will be hard to talk to me out of this one. $4 for a legit WR2 with his upside seems to be a no brainer)

Lamar Miller - $4 (was set to keep Ben/Hopkins until I started doing more research and more mocks. I'm not the biggest miller fan but for what mid-tier RBs seem to be going for, the value here is really appealing for Miller as a RB2/flex option).

Davante Adams - $0 (had convinced myself to keep Hopkins/miller last week until Jordy went down. Snagged Adams towards the end of last year for depth without it costing me anything. Trying to decide if his upside is worth keeping over Miller and if him/Hopkins is a solid WR duo to go to battle with, or if he's more of a flex/depth guy)

Any insight is appreciated, thanks!

Dunno how many keepers you get, but those are all terrific options. If you can keep them all, do it.

If you have a limit, I'd probably drop Miller first.

I grabbed Hopkins for $11 last year (14-team league) and couldn't slap a keeper on him fast enough. He was great last year and with Johnson gone there are more targets to go around.

I wouldn't lock in Adams as your WR2, though, with your finances you can go get a better one.

Hopkins is a must, then, but I don't think you could go wrong with any of the other 3.

Mark Ingram or Justin Forsett? Both would be my RB 2 behind AP both cost me a late round pick as they were both FA pick ups. Leaning Forsett as he has less competition/more predictable offense

Standard or PPR scoring?

Regardless, I'd lean towards keeping Forsett. Trestman is at least good for making RB's productive, especially in the passing game.
