Harvin - 14th
Crabs - 17th

You keep Charles and it's not even close to me. If you can only keep 1 then you keep the Top 5 RB.

Awesome man, that's totally where I am leaning but looking at the other 4 I keep thinking of the value they are at those rounds. Charles though scored so much more last year then the next back in ppr he is almost a value even for a first

im confused on why this would even be a tough choice. how do your keepers work?
My league does three keepers and I'm definitely keeping Calvin Johnson and Kaepernick but I can't decide on the other one. Gore and DeSean Jackson are really the only other guys I have who's worthy. If Gordon was assured of playing all season I'd pick him. I'm expecting a big year from Leveon Bell but can't see keeping him. I wouldn't be against keeping Vernon Davis but unless it's Graham I don't think you can justify keeping a tight end.

It's pretty straight forward, you keep one player for the round they were drafted in and lose that pick in the draft. I put the round I drafted them in last year next to there name. I was probably over thinking it but my thought process was I wouldn't get any value from keeping somebody who will be drafted in that same round or close to that round. Where if I was to keep crabs I would just lose my last pick where he is going in round 5 in many drafts. I probably just needed somebody to confirm my feeling of not worrying about value and just stick with Charles.
Should I keep Gore, Desean Jackson, LeVeon Bell, or Vernon Davis to go with Kaep and Calvin Johnson as my keepers?

you aren't investing too much keeping Charles. Much more value else where.

What is you end up with tope 5 pick anyways?

That was my dilemma but Charles is as close to a lock, barring injury, as there is in a ppr format. He out scored ap by over 140 points in my league last year so I feel pretty good about securing the #1 back and the wrs are super deep.

Who would you keep out of my list?

Super casual league. Snaking from last years standings but the two new people get the first two picks in the first two rounds.
^^^^^^ I'd keep Desean because I saw that Garcon had a small hammy injury. If it happens again, Desean will be GOLD

Charles is a safe pick, but HUGE investment
His O-line has suffered and he got a big pay day

Graham is going in first rd and has a huge advantage over all the other TEs (dude could easily go for 18TDs). so in that sense by keeping Graham u give up a second but still have a 1st round pick and graham is essentially a 1 st round pick. IMO Charles, AP, McCopy and Forte are your 1st tier RBs and could still end up with one of them.

But if you want the most value its with Nelson and Crabs and you easily gotta go with crabs here bc there is a 10 round difference.

it really depends on how much the league is sucked up at RBs bc of keepers, if everyone keeps a RB you gotta keep Charles bc the league isn't as deep with these type of RBs ( many shared touches and more passing hurting RB numbers)

Yea man I hear you, all of the other top rbs are being kept except for AP. So it would have been difficult for me to secure a top rb if I went another direction. Crabtree would have been a huge value, I am targeting him in the 5th for our draft today. This is a big money league, $1000 to the winner so I am looking at minimizing my risk and Charles is almost bust proof barring injury. Graham is a big advantage at his position but I'm looking at getting Julius Thomas in the 3rd hopefully who should see an increase in targets with decker gone this year. I'll see how the draft plays out....

Have the 2nd pick in my PPR league. Who should I take Lesean, Charles or Megatron? And what should I do with my 2nd round pick?

I would definitely go with Charles and it would depend on who is left when you get back to your pick in the 2nd but if one of the top 6-7 stud wrs are still there it would be a good to pick up one of those
