Keeper Help

I'm in a rookie keeper league. Who(1) should I keep from last year. Chris Johnson for my 8th rd pick, Eddie Royal for my 18th rd, or Donnie Avery for my 19th rd?

Johnson, as I like to stick with RB's as keepers. They are more consistent year to year, and while the 18th and 19th rounds are tempting, there's nothing wrong with 8th round value.

You have to go with Chris Johnson there. You can find WRs in the draft but good, young RBs are tough to come by.

I don't necessarily agree with Larry, but I agree on Johnson.

Johnson is an excellent young RB. Royal may very well end up a stud, but as of now, he's nothing special.
