My turn: FFL keeper advice wanted

6 posts in this topic

I play in an auction league that allows 2 keepers, for $5 more than was paid the previous year.

(my estimated value based on expert projections and league scoring)

I will keep Larry Johnson for $17 (steal $52), but am stuck between Rudi Johnson $21 ($24), Willis McGahee $13 ($16), or Matt Hasselbeck $10 ($15).

Since you have to pay $5 more each year McGahee seems to have the most risk/reward/upside. Can he return to his form of two years ago? Was last year just an off year?

RJ is the best player of the three at a fair price but there is a good possibility both Alexander ($42) and Tomlison ($39) get released as thier keeper price is around $45, same with p.Manning ($31).

Hasselbeck seems like good value but not if I make a run at Manning, if he's even available.

I'm leaning towards MH and hoping to get one of the other big 3 at RB.

Sorry this is long winded. What would you do? and why!

I don't play an auction league, but as far as players go, Rudi is a solid keeper. I guess it depends on how your league is too, are RB's more favored in points or is it more of a QB league?

Definetely not Hasselbeck - Qbs are a dime a dozen - If you can cut all of them loose, I would only keep LJ and go for Tomlinson or Alexander because if you get one of them, you will be tough to beat no matter who your receivers are. If you have to keep someone, why don't you just keep some crappy player so that you have enough to land one of those big guns? Othwerwise, I would stay away from McGahee because that is a terrible football team and keep Rudi.

      Nice Fish ST! Loadmaster, I hope it was nothing major or serious that had you in the hospital.  I was just informed by the Chief of Staff that I get to do house projects this weekend..sigh..maybe Monday I'll get to go out.

      Sorry...been posting a few pics in the Panfish section...I've been out a lot chasing crappies, started 10 days after ice out. I did the eye opener and we did good real shallow 4-6ft with jig and shiner but that one eye outing is it for me unless I go out late fall for them again.  Crappies bite has been real good...just not in normal spots...not many spawned in the shallow reeds but beds we deeper 5-7 ft in many lakes. I've been as far North as Little Bemidji to as far South as S. Lida and many lakes in between. Went out Saturday morning early and found them in 12.5ft suspended real high; used the smallest rap they make and just fan casted all around the boat and they were aggressive.  Cabbage is coming up and healthy in most lakes and they will be moving into the cabbage when it warms up. Water clarity has been unbelievable in every lake I've been on so far. Another yo-yo weather pattern makes it more challenging for sure....but search and you will find.

      Just curious if anyone else was out on the chain braving the rain sat and sunday?

      Contact the DNR if there are serious concerns.  Tournaments have to be permitted through them.  If they're not handling the fish correctly, they might lose their permit.

      A 6-mile section of the Glacial Lakes State Trail will be closed as contractors work on improvements, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
      Trail users will see intermittent closures until June 1 as workers remove trees and brush that are near the work area. The segment between the trailhead in Willmar and Spicer’s south side at Progress Way is scheduled to close on June 5 as workers begin mill and overlay work on the trail’s westernmost 6 miles. The project is scheduled for completion by Aug. 25. In addition to a smooth, new surface, trail users will enjoy new benches, improved accessibility, and paved crossings at gravel road intersections. The current 8-foot trail width will also be expanded to 10 feet. “We think our trail users will be pleased with these improvements,” said Jeremy Losinski, area supervisor for the DNR’s Parks and Trails Division. “The wider trail will provide easier passage. Plus, the smoother pavement replaces the trail’s oldest paved surface, which is now more than 20 years old. It had deteriorated and reached the end of its life cycle.” Contractors will also be replacing several culverts along the trail to provide better drainage. “While we want to make sure everyone is safe, there will still be opportunities to use parts of the trail during construction,” Losinski said. “The construction will start in Willmar and work its way toward Spicer, so small portions of the trail will have limited use. Our trail users may not be able to go all the way from Willmar to Spicer during times in the construction process. We just ask that our trail users obey the closure signs and avoid construction equipment.” Prinsburg-based Duininck, Inc., is the contractor. Construction updates will be posted on the DNR’s Glacial Lakes State Trail Web page. The 22-mile western segment of the Glacial Lakes State Trail links Willmar with the Kandiyohi/Stearns County line. The 5-mile eastern segment connects Roscoe to Cold Spring. Built on the former Burlington Northern railroad grade, a total of 27 miles is paved as the trail cuts across the border between Minnesota’s western tallgrass prairie and eastern deciduous forest.
