RB Keeper Overviews

It’s been a few weeks since I broke out my QB Keeper Overviews here, and it’s already time to update them. But before I do that I’m going to try to bang out the other key positions within the next week and catch completely up.

Next up, it’s the RBs.

At first glance, while there is good depth, I notice a little bit of a void when it comes to true studs at the position. So if you’re in a keeper league that retains only 3-4 players, I advise your approach your keepers much like you should have been approaching a standard redraft league the last two years: don’t take a RB just because he’s a RB and take the best players, period. Keep in mind, of course, the pool of attractive options will increase after the draft.

That said about the lack of quality at the top, I’m personally ranking some young guys who I do think are for real very high, even though they’ve really only “done it” for one year.

Let’s take a look at the top guys.

There aren’t many RBs who are clearly their team’s workhorse, so if you have one on your team, and he’s a young stud, then […]

Free Agency Tracking (3/4/09)

Here’s the latest activity. On Friday, I’ll incorporate all of these moves into a large player movement review (Part I), broken down by position and status (signed, re-signed, etc).

Jake Grove (C, signed by Miami from Oakland) – The former Raider signed a five-year, $29 million deal. Grove is one of the taller centers in football (6’4″) and has made an impact when he’s healthy. But that’s the biggest issue. In five seasons Grove has played in just 54 games, making 46 starts, and 2006 was the only season in which he started every game. Grove will presumably replace Samson Satele, who started every game in 2008, at the heart of Miami’s line. Given Grove’s injury history, it will be a nice cushion for the Dolphins to have an experienced backup, but they must like the potential upgrade Grove provides.

Fantasy Analysis – The Dolphins apparently don’t like Satele, who is a young guy, so while Grove has issues, adding him to the mix has to be considered good news for their line. If Grove can stay healthy and reach his potential, it could be great news. Worst case, he’ll improve their depth.

Jim Leonhard (S, signed by NY Jets from Baltimore) […]

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
