    I am in a keeper league. I have Peterson, Doug Martin and Calvin Johnson. I need a QB. The top 3 available are Newton, RG3 and Kaepernick. Who would be the best fit.

    Newton
    Kaep
    RG3

    That should be the order.
    Seeing how those 3 will probably be your keepers again, I wouldnt even consider the keeper value of your QBs.

    I

    That is what I was thinking, I had RG3 and Kaep last year and they helped me win it all, but I kinda see big things for Newton in his 3rd year.

    PPR or not?
    Really like what you did with the RBs, 4 solid options there for sure.
    Absolutely hate Greg Jennings as a WR2 but your bench has enough depth at WR to get you by if you play the right guy on the right weeks. Not sure what you're doing with Percy though....
    Your TE is actually Jordan Cameron, not Cameron Jordan, and he will be a stud this year, great pick.

    My bad, missed either one of Thomas/Welker.

    Which brings me to another question, why do you have two WRs from Denver????

    I highly recommend picking one and trading the other. How many weeks will they both have good games? It's a risk if their on bye, playing a tough opponent, or have an off game.

    Think about this, if Denver's D/ST scores 2 touchdowns one game, they'll switch heavily to the run to protect the lead, and you'll see less catches and especially big catches, could cost you some fantasy weeks.

    Extremely solid team. If Andre plays well, you'll go far in the playoffs. When you have a solid team like this, you should focus on minimizing risk. If you could flip Andre for Cobb, V-Jax or Fitz, I would do it in a heartbeat to improve your chances of staying healthy.

    In my dynasty league I just traded Matt Ryan for CJ2K, Ponder, Malcom Floyd and the number 5 pick in this years rookie draft.

    Thoughts?

    Ehhhh could be good.

    I normally don't like getting 4 players for 1, because you have to essentially drop 3 players so you may not be upgrading as much.

    #5 in rookie draft could be a good selection though, looking at someone like: Tavon, Manuel, Bell, Lacy, Ball, Bernard, Eifert.

    I just hope you have another QB, Ponder and Manuel, for example, won't get you far.

    I have injury issues. So I needed players. I have Alex Smith and Sam Bradford so a big drop off at QB.

    I'll address QB next year I have enough to get me into the 4 team playoff this year

    1150-1300 rushing/receiving yards, 10-12 tds. I'd take him early 2nd round in a 12 team standard league.

    The interesting part about Jackson for me is the amount of catches he'll get in that offense which will be big for PPR. My concern on Jackson is (besides him being older and having lots of career rushes) the ATL O-Line is pretty awful and that could impact his running effectiveness or ability to stay healthy and on the field. You also still have Jazquizzzz who hasn't really panned out, but if he does, would take away some plays from Jackson.

    I would go Chris Johnson, Ridley or Bush (in a PPR) over Jackson, but he's a better option than Gore, Murray and MJD for example.

    Getting Jackson/Thomas at 24/25 picks is nice.

    got this trade offer right after draft:

    Rodgers and James Jones for Rice and Romo

    I get Rodgers and Jones he gets Rice and Romo I had a horrendous draft idk what happened so I might need Rodgers to take me far. Told him i'll wait it out though.
