Opinion on Keeper

Opinion on Keeper

My league allows one keeper and the pick in parentheses is what I'd lost to keep him. I know Cutler is the obvious choice, it's probably just my dislike of him but Ward or Stewart for a 14th also feels like a total steal. Need some opinions to talk me off the ledge.

I would go with Ward and pick up the best QB with my 1st or 2nd pick.

That's a definite possibility, but I can't help but think Cutler is going to tear it up this year to spite Denver. He doesn't have great weapons in Chicago though, and Ward is a safer choice. Oh well, I have some time to think about it.

Definitely either Ward or Stewart. There stands a good chance you an still get Cutler with your 6th (if not later). But definitely can get someone who'll put up close to his numebrs(if not better) in the 6th. where in contrast you'll have to get lucky to get a player in the 14th round that will put up similar numbers to Ward or Stewart.

I personally would go Stewart because you know what you are getting. Ward is going to a new team and who knows how the carries will be split. Of course I haven't done any research to see what they are saying in Tampa about their RB situation. It would take them saying Ward is going to be their horse for me to take him over Stewart.

But for a 14th round pick you can't go wrong with either of them.
I'd go with Stewart.

I think Ward will share carries with Graham and Dunn. They'll have a platoon back there. For Cutler, I don't like their offense much. They'll have a good running game, but there's nobody out there for Cutler. Unless they make a trade for Marshall, I don't see Cutler as someone I'd wanna keep in your league.

Young talented RB like Stewart for a 14th rounder? I'd do that all day, bro.
I would go with Ward. I think that he is very undervalued this year. I don't see anyone in Tampa taking carries away.

I would take Chiefs advice only IF there are some great QB's being released back to the league. It really depends, remember Cutler may not have the weapons THIS year but you may live to regret it next year. Also Stewart should start to get more touches, esp. on the line and he like Ward will split reps (Ward with Graham), so both backs could lose valuable touches.
