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?

Do you lose points for INT? What is your salary Cap?

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.

      Well I ended up picking up the Cabelas zone specialist on sale for $160 plus I had a coupon in the mail for 20 off A $150 purchase
      Picked up a new chair and a power owl call ( Im pretty sure I can call better with no call than that thing) I had a 200 gift card so I walked out of there with 17.00 credit
      Not bad I say I really liked the blind I sat in them all that were set up with my chair and I grabbed a bow from the archery department. I know people will probably disagree but dare I say from what I seen I like it better than the bullpen even.
      It seems to me to be made of a good material too and I can see it lasting awhile as I will take care of it and I am not going to leave it out for days on end. We will see how it is to hunt out of soon.

      I love my 6 inch K Drill however the blades seem to dull faster to me once I figured it out. Happy as a clam. I do regret selling my power auger. I bought a 8 Eskimo power auger for when I go to Mille lacs. the K drill will work just fine but I liked having the 8 inch hole for eyes up there harder to turn there head in a six inch hole. I know you can drill 2 holes together but for me it just worked. Short story Rick G is right on I love my K drill. Would recommend to any one and it's so much lighter when runnin and gunnin.

        Just wanted to share info on what I know about how those USGS stream gages work.  The stream gaging station will not reflect accurate readings of stage and discharge while ice cover is present.  If you are looking at USGS stream gages you will see a little note in the data table that says "Ice Cover" if this is the case.  They won't be useful until the ice is gone and "Ice Cover" is not showing up next to the readings.  They work on water pressure to estimate the height of water above the gage.  More water flowing under the ice creates more water pressure, so makes the estimated gage height and corresponding estimated discharge go up.  The USGS gage at Manitou should be accurate (no ice cover).  The higher flow will draw the fish in better than low flow.  Another good one to check is the LWCB gages for Rainy Lake and the tailrace below the dam(s).  That will help determine if it's the Forks affecting water levels or just more water coming out of Rainy, which is nice and clear.  Hopefully it won't get muddy!  Maybe see you out there DucksnBucks.  T-Rock-1.

      I saw teal for the first time this morning.  I've had 8 drake mergs hanging around the house for at least a week.  Ringnecks have taken their place for about the past week.  The goldeneyes came and went pretty quick.   I heard snows last night.  Other guys reported the same this morning.  One person reported a flock of Ross' geese last night.  Too bad they don't show a hint of setting down around these parts.   Ive heard woodies but can't say I've actually seen one.  And my wood duck house appears to still be empty.  There was a No Vacancy sign on it by this time last year.   In all, I'm seeing the usual suspects but I have to say the numbers are less than last year.  I hope that's just due to there being more open water all around than last year.
