I'm just looking for some help from you more knowledgeable folks. I'm in a 12 team league with fairly standard scoring and very light, odd keeper rules. There are only 2 keeper slots, plus you are penalized for your keeper selections based on where the player was last drafted. It works like this: if player A was drafted in the fourth round in 2008, he costs a third round pick this year and, assuming he's kept, would cost a first round pick in 2010 (in case of both keepers overlapping, you lose the next lower round pick). There are some flaws in the system, but they haven't really been a problem yet. Anyway, the rosters are QB,RB,RB,WR,WR,WR,TE,K,D,6xBench.
I'm trying to decide between Turner for a 1st round pick penalty and Brees for a 2nd rounder. There are probably 5 or 6 teams that would draft before me in the first round, although I'm actually in the 10 slot (my team had a meltdown in week 16). My other keeper is a no-brainer (I think) with Slaton for only a 10th rounder. I could be overlooking something, so I'll give you my other options that aren't awful with their potential draft round penalties: Gore(1), Boldin(3), Lee Evans(4), Jennings(5), Jason Campbell(11).
Sorry for the oddball system (yes, I understand the flaws in it) and long-winded explanation. Reading around here, it sounds like you guys would go with Slaton/Brees, but I want to make sure that I'm not missing something. Thanks for any help.
