Who to Keep in 12 Team 3-KEEPER PPR League

12 Team PPR League

Start QB,RB,RB,WR,WR,WR,TE,FLEX (6 Bench)

There are NO Penalties for Fumbles or Interceptions.

TDs
Pass:4pts
Rec/Rush:6pts

YDS
25 Passing:1pt
10 Rec/Rush: 1pt

1 pt per reception

Pick three:
A Rodgers
R Rice
C Benson
McShady
L Fitz
R White
M Colston
S Smith (NYG)

I would typically keep Rodgers, Rice, and Fitz. But the league changed to PPR and no penalties for Interceptions. So know thinking White instead of Rodgers.

Also we added two teams so they will get supplemental picks in the 1st round.

Thoughts?

In this keeper league, do you forfeit the round in which you drafted the keeper, or do you just have two keepers and essentially start in "round 4" (considering keepers constitute everyone's first 3 picks)?

No forfeited round picks. You keep 3 from last year and basically start with round 4.

Because your league starts so many WR's (and a flex) and b/c your scoring system favors it, I'd go with White over Rodgers too.

Keepin' Rice, Fitz, and White.

Thanks for the reply. I agree. If we weren't starting 3 WRs (or 4WRs with the Flex) I'd go Rodgers. Additionally, I think the fact that there are no Negative Points for throwing INTs or fumbling, it really levels the playing field on QBs.

I agree. Rice, Fitz, and White. WR's are two important and QB value is deflated despite no penalty for interceptions.

Do I put any stock into the preseason? Specifically Rodgers killing it in GB and ARI without a QB?

I'm sure someone will disagree with me but after seeing D.A. and Leinart in action, taking Fitz would require more courage than I have. Even Fitz can't catch a ball that hits the turf five yards away. In my opinion, Rodgers is the safer choice. Just remember to get your WRs early in the draft, and if Fitz comes back to you, get him.
