Keepers due by midnight HELP!?

12 team 2 keeper league .5ppr. I need to select two keepers. The cost of each keeper is a round ahead of where they were selected the previous year. If continuously kept then the cost goes up by one round every year. This is new in our league so id like some input. Here is my options and the rounds that it would cost me this year if i kept whatever 2. Now if i two players with the same round are kept, then one of them would advance an extra round. so if two 2nd rounders were kept, one would cost a 1st and the other would cost a 2nd

James Conner-undrafted would cost me a 17th

JUJU-2nd round

Dalvin Cook-1st round

Damien Williams-went undrafted would cost me a 17th

Travis Kelce 3rd round

Beckahm JR-1st



After my projection of who each team keeps. I should be picking 5th overall.Top available
DJ,Julio,Beckham,Keenan Allen,Cook,Fournette,Mike Evans, plus whoever I don’t keep

after that I’m picking 11th out of 12

    Connor is an obvious choice. Kelce would be my second selection based on ADP value

    Not a fan of Damian in the 16th? If I keep two players that cost the same, one has to move up a round. I don’t have two 17s

    option 1
    option 2 thru 5 lol
    Kelce/JuJu - not gaining much value but could be BPA in those round
    Connor or Williams/OBJ - pick the RB you like the best and your WR
    Connor or Williams/JuJu - above
    Connor/Williams - well worth it even with the risk involved with both players

    good luck

    Its a great ADP value, and probably @Smitty pick. Its a personal choice of mine to go with Kelce as I don't believe Damien will last the full 16 game season. I prefer Darwin Thompson, but i'm in the minority. I couldn't fault you with going with the early favorite Damien.

    This for me as well. Kelce is the top TE in fantasy so securing him before the draft would be a very nice start.

    You believe that’s better than keeping Conner and Williams and having all my top draft selections? First 3 picks I believe will be Gurley,Julio,Beckham, Kelce or juju and then my pick. So there’s a chance I could get juju or Kelce back with my first. If I risked it lmk thx

    I prefer keeping Kelce as the top TE since you are required to start one. I'm on the fence with both Conner and Williams BUT Conner for a 17th round pick is less risk and I prefer him over Williams right now. Williams is a risky RB right now and has never been the primary ball carrier in his NFL career so injuries are a concern for me with him. Is he capable of producing RB1 numbers in that KC offense, yes. But he does have some decent competition on that KC depth chart and is already dealing with a hamstring issue.

    Damien and Conner here.. the value is absurd... though I can see kelce in the third. Are ertz and Kittle being kept (I assume Kittle is either where he was drafted late or as a FA in the 17th)

    Then retain Williams, use a third or 2nd to get a TE.

    If you're confident you can draft a top TE then keep a player like Williams for a much later draft spot. If Williams can't stay healthy or gets outplayed by one of the other RB's and loses the starting gig then it only cost you a 17th round pick but you also lose a weekly starter.

    So if you had to choose at the end of the day you’re picking Conner and Kelce? Do I have that right? Or Conner and Williams and get Ertz or Kittle in the second? It’s snake so I should have anywhere from the 5-7 7 at worst depending on keepers and then after that keepers are occupied until my next pick at the turn

    Conner and Kelce..

    Make sure to grab Samuels later


    Also, how can you keep both Conner and Williams if you say they are both undrafted and cost you the same 17th round pick?

    Because one would cost me just an extra round higher because I don’t have two 17s

    Missed that.. I would keep Conner and Williams, then grab Kittle a round early

    There is a small risk the team that has Kittle keeps him. It’s a toss up. Would you still go Williams and you’re not concerned about that situation?

    Williams and Conner easily. You running backs are set. You can redraft Wr/Kelce in the 1st and 2nd rd.

    No because that means another elite WR or RB will be available in that spot. Besides the players having talent, you want the best value. 16th and 17th Round for two potential top 12 RB? It leaves plenty of room to build elsewhere..

    The worst case is you reach for a TE or another player you really want and you’re still in great shape because of the value you saved elsewhere.

    You could reach and grab Kelce/Kittle in the 1st round and still be walking into the 2nd round of your draft with Conner/Williams/Kelce(or Kittle) .. that’s a great start

    You think Williams is worth the risk of losing Kelce potentially then?
