    Who to Keep??

    I am in a 10 team keep 4 league.

    For sure i plan to keep;

    A.Johnson WR
    G.Jennings WR

    But i am having trouble picking 2 out of this group;

    E.Manning QB
    D.Jackson WR
    F.Jackson RB
    D.Murray RB
    L.Blount RB
    A.Gates TE

    I am leaning towards Manning and one of the RB's but not sure which one.

    Any input appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd keep Manning and DeMarco Murray.

    Fred Jackson is 30 and will be coming off an injury, so I wouldn't trust him as a #1 running back even though he was phenomenal this year. Blount is a non-factor in the passing game and is on a team that was playing from behind most of last season. That could change next season, but I think both of them are re-draftable.

    I don't really like keeping Manning and he's probably towards the bottom of the top-10 QBs, but if you guys keep 4 I assume Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Stafford, Newton and maybe Vick are being kept, so he's not a bad option considering

    I'd go with Manning and FJax. Murray would be my next choice after FJax, but FJax is really good even at his age and with the injury. Plus, Murray still has to battle with Felix.

    I'll make an argument that you shouldn't keep Eli Manning. Lets assume that Eff is right and Rodgers, Brees, Brady, Stafford and Vick get kept as QB's. Thats half the league not looking for a QB in the 1st rd of your draft and unlikely to take one.

    Then you look at who's likely available out of Rivers, Peyton, Newton, Romo, Ben, Eli, M.Ryan and Luck. Thats a lot of good choices from that group to the point that you could probably wait untill the 2nd rd to take even the worst guy out of that group. Unless Eli completely tears it up this postseason or you are convinced he'll throw for 35 TD's next year it doesn't make sense to keep him as a top 40 fantasy player when he's very likely on the board in the middle of the 2nd rd probably somewhere around the 55th overall player taken at best. Wouldn't be shocked if he slipped into rd 3 actually.
