Anyways, here's what I'm looking at for next year for sure:
RB - D. Martin - $28
RB - A. Morris - $5
RB - D. Sproles - $16
WR - H. Nicks - $27
WR - D. Jackson - $16
WR - D. Alexander - $5
WR - TY Hilton - $1
That leaves me with $98 spent and one more to protect. Obviously, I'm in great shape money-wise, and will need to spend on a top QB (but I think Brady, Stafford, and Brees could all be released).
Last keeper spot:
Josh Gordon at $4
Vick Ballard at $5
Joique Bell at $7
I was leaning toward Gordon, but have lately been leaning Ballard -- he's been pretty darn good. I also have more WRs.
We start: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, TE, Flex (WR/RB/TE), K, Def
Is Ballard the choice here?
Are my other 7 the right choices?
I've got loads of time to decide, and there's still a chance somebody will get released and I'll buy a final keeper, but figured I'd ask anyways.
I like Ballard as your last keeper. For the same resons mentioned above. But I might consider keeping Gordon over DJax. In my eyes, they are the same player but Gordon is cheaper. Add to the fact that Weeden and Gordon seem to have a chemistry, he may just end up outperforming DJax next year. SOmething to consider
