    WR Keeper Question

    I figure I would start a new thread but if you want to merge it then go ahead.

    I am in a 13 (yea 13) team keeper league. You can keep up to 4 people, 3 is the minimum and if you only keep 3 you get a draft pick a round earlier. I came in 3rd last season so I draft 11th and it is a regular draft, not a fantasy snake draft. So basically I pick 11th, 22nd, etc. You start QB, RB, 2 WR, Flex, TE, K, DST.

    Anyway here is my quandary. I have 5 keepers for 4 slots. My 3 untouchable keepers are

    Matt Ryan
    MJD
    Steven Jackson

    My other two are the ones I am struggling with who to keep.

    Vincent Jackson
    Miles Austin

    All along I was leaning towards Jackson but I see Austin is ranked quit a bit ahead of him in all the fantasy rankings I see. The issues I am having are

    Rivers > Romo

    Witten and Bryant will likely take catches away from Jackson while Jackson only has Gates.

    I kept Jackson all season last year and am thinking his lower rating is based upon an 11 game holdout.

    Any suggestions. FWIW I am trying to parlay one of those WR's into an earlier draft pick.

    Tough call, keep in mind that Jackson has had disciplinary issues with the league, and he has a screw loose.
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Man that is some strange league you got going there. Tough call I kind of like Austin (as long as Romo is the QB) but I see your argument. I think I would try to figure out who is available with an early pick before I did anymore contemplating, see if the value is their to go that route. But if your not gauranteed at least as good a WR then make your choice. It might help if we knew more about your scoring. In my league we give points for receptions for example which can shift things significantly.
