    Blockbuster Fantasy signing

    I'm in a keeper league, get to keep 3 players.
    So far i'm doing really bad, and need to win out the rest of the season to even make the playoffs, so, in thinking about next year, my blockbuster move..... and i recommend some in the same position as I am in... is......


    Tom Brady.

    Sign him, he's probably a FA in alot of leagues

    Maybe Peterson straight up for Brady, Steve Smith is not in the same talent level as Fitz. With Fitz, you know you are getting 10-20 points a week. With Smith you get 30 one week and 0 the next. I would personally keep Fitz and Brady, but if you can get Peterson for Brady I would. You also don't know if Brady will recover on time for the season and be ready to play right away.

    Thanks PPE for the Sig

    If Tom Brady is a FA in your keeper league, then the people in your keeper league are complete and utter dumbasses.

    A roster spot for a whole season is a lot to give up for someone who had only 1 exceptional fantasy year. Especially if you have another option like Drew Brees, Jay Cutler, or Ben Roethlisburger. I try to stay focused on winning now instead of next year, of course if your season is over all ready go ahead and pick up brady, of course you will have to decide which players you are not gonna keep.
    Which 5 of these players should I keep in my keeper league(first year).
    Jay Cutler
    Larry Fitzgerald
    Randy Moss
    Terrell Owens
    Brandon Jacobs
    Jamal lewis
    Tony Gonzalez
    Ronnie Brown
    Donald Driver
    Devery Henderson
    Lendale white
    Donovan McNabb
    Reggie Bush
    Ryan Longwell
    Jacksonville Defense
    I'm thinking
    Fitz
    Moss
    Owens
    Cutler
    Jacobs

    Re: Blockbuster Fantasy signing

    I was also wondering why Brady would be in the FA pool in a keeper league.

    I'm also wondering how the heck did you manage to get all of the following players:

    Larry Fitzgerald
    Randy Moss
    Terrell Owens
    Brandon Jacobs
    Jamal lewis
    Ronnie Brown

    All of those were 2-4 round picks type players.

    I would keep Fitzgerald, Jacobs, and Brown for sure.

    Re: Blockbuster Fantasy signing

    It kind of depends when you have to freeze them.
    If you get to wait until next years draft time then I would.
    Jacobs is an unrestricted free agent - where he goes will definitely be a consideration.
    Moss needs Brady healthy so if there are issues there he probably wouldn't be worth freezing.
    If it's PPR then Bush should be a strong consideration.


    The no doubters for me would be Fitz, Brown, & Cutler with Jacobs, Bush, Moss & Owens fighting for two spots.
    If you have to do it now then I would go Jacobs & Moss unless it's PPR then I would go Jacobs & Bush.

    It was an 8 team league. I drafted Moss, then Owens, then Fitz in the first 3 rounds. The running backs just fell to me, I think most people filled their 2 running back spots earlt and by the 4th, 5th and 6th rounds they were filling other positions. I got a lot of grief at the time for taking 3 wr in the 1st 3 rounds but now I'm in 1st place.
