Injury/Bye Week HELP needed!


Recommended Posts

Stuck with many injuries and byes this week!! This is a keeper league.


Here is my lineup for this week, so far, with no kicker yet!!


QB - Brett Favre vs Was

WR - Randy Moss @ Dal

WR - Bobby Engram vs NO

WR - Anquan Boldin vs Car (injury concern)

RB - LaDainian Tomlinson vs Oak

RB - Laurence Maroney @ Dal (injury concern)

TE - Jeremy Shockey @ Atl

RB/WR - ???

K - *Nobody Currently*

Def - Baltimore vs StL


Jerious Norwood vs NYG

Steven Jackson @ Bal

Drew Brees @ Sea

Andre Johnson @ Jac

Kenton Keith Bye

Brandon Marshall Bye

Kevin Jones Bye

Roy Williams Bye


Luckily my opponent is hit with bye weeks for Kitna, Gore, Lynch and RWayne!


There are some good FA guys available:












But the big Snag... this is a keeper league with some side rules of...


- Nobody drafted in first 3 rounds can be kept

- Played kept is taken 2 rounds earlier the next year

- Max keeper is 3 years


So... gotta take the keeper side into play here. If I drop someone, then anyone who picks up the player will get their keeper worth.


Any FA pick ups are 12 rd keepers if kept.


Looking at my roster, SJax is a solid keeper still since I traded a non-keeper for him in his rookie season.


Here are my guys with the round they would be kept in (if kept next season)


REALLY need a game plan or who is dropable etc.


QB -

BFavre - 12th rd if kept next season (FA pickup)

DBrees - 10th rd if kept next seaosn (Kept him this season, 2 yrs left)


WR -

RMoss - 3rd rd if kept next season

BEngram - 12th rd if kept next season

ABoldin - 2nd rd if kept next season

AJohnson - Can't be kept

BMarshall - 12th rd if kept next season

RoyWilliams - Can't be kept


RB -

LTomlinson - Can't be kept

LMaroney - 5th rd if kept next season (Kept him this season, 2 yrs left)

JNorwood - 9th rd if kept next season

SJackson - 8th rd if kept next season (kept him this season, 1 yr left)

KJones - 12th rd if kept next season

KKeith - 12th rd if kept next season


TE -

Jeremy Shockey - 6th rd if kept next season


Obviously SJax will be kept. Brees and Maroney have not helped at all this season, but dropping them would transfer to another team if dropped etc.


Looking at next season... SJax and maybe RMoss (3rd rd) and KJones (12th rd) could work. Pending if Moss continues his ways.


Was looking at this week, and the holes I have... I thought about dumping Keith, after his servicable week, and I guess my next drop option would be Norwood?!? Just hard to know if he would be a great keeper next season in the 9th rd????


Still need to hear about AJohnson and Boldin for this week, but eyein up James Jones and JWright for the upcoming week.


Just stinks to have decent keeper options and not much use for them now.


Any thoughts and direction???
