    12 teams, we each keep 2 and they count as yer 1st and 2nd picks. Kinda weird scoring with bonus fer long TD's (3pts fer 0-9 yards and goes up 2pts fer every 10 yards after. A 31 yard TD is worth 9.2 pts plus yardage). Anyway, I might have to be talked off the ledge on this as I have to keep 2 and my choices after CMac aren't wonderful. Here are the guise that I'm considering:

    CMac (no brainer)
    DHenry (This is a bit scary)
    DWatson (could prolly draft him in the 4th round)

    Then there are a shit load of questionable guise:

    Jordan Howard (If he was to be traded to the right team I think he moves up the list)
    DForeman (Who knows what happens with this guy and his situation)
    KJohnson (Same as above but he sure had some nice games)
    KDixon (If he was given this job full time I'd consider..........but he is always hurt)
    AP (I could draft him late again if I want him).

    Bottom line is I have to keep 2 of these guise and the receivers I have I can draft almost any of them after round 7.....................and with this shit team I was able to come 5th in scoring...............SMH.

    Not sure when you have to declare, but I think you are right that Howard only really becomes an option if he is traded. Kerryon may be intriguing. I would think he would be in line for a featured back role if he stays healthy next year. Watson is nice, but there are so many QBs out there. I think you have to go with CMac and Henry, though. Is there someone out there who has really weak keepers and you could trade Kerryon or Henry to? I figure you have probably thought of that, but just in case. If not, I think I flip a coin between those two (Kerryon and Henry) at the deadline.

    I know man, just keeping Henry is scary as fuck. Yes, we all saw what he could be but will they give him the ball 20 times a game and let him wear down D's..................Watson ended up being #4 in scoring in this league but yeah, I could draft him later. Here's to Howard being traded to a team that will use him.

    Kerryon is the one I'd favor of the questionables. ..... think he will be someone that will be a fixture in your lineup

    I don't think Jordan Howard is getting traded. He's on a rookie salary so he's cheap.
    Maybe I'm drowning in Kool-Aid, but I think as Trubs gets more comfortable, the more they use Howard.
    Sounds contradictory, but Trubs has been going through his progressions well as of late, and the result in the last 2 games has Howard with back to back 100-yard games.

    That said, you need to look at the RE-draftability of these players.
    Henry might be scary to keep, but my guess is he's probably the player most likely to go early next year.
    At least compared to the other players listed.
    I'm with lefty & monkey and like Kerryon. But players with injuries and on bad teams tend to drop.
    Foreman is recovering from the Achilles. That history is not a good one for former RB. He had 1 rushing attempt for negative -7 yards. His usage may boil down to a pass-catching back.

    I thought about this.

    WHo would i want to keep. CMAC and Kerryon.

    WHo do you have to keep CMAC

    What player do you have the LEAST likely chance of getting back in rounds 3-4 , since 1-2 are keeps:Derrick Henry

    Henry may not be the BEST player, but hes the least likely to get back, very high ceiling, very very low floor.

    Id gamble on keeping henry, and shooting to get back kerryon. Keep in mind kerryon is still hurt, i know theres the offseason, but he isnt even moving around yet.

    The rest of the guys will be available to you, or similar players available.

    and screw you for making me think on a friday morning @Sam Sportboy

    Imo it is easily Henry over Johnson. And simply because of the team. Lions are stupid, and continue to want to be a passing team. Tennessee is stupid but is much more of a running team.

    The fear with Henry is always how the titans don’t trust him enough to make him the number one. But the way he finished off this season they have to give him the number one spot. Don’t they??

    60 yard TD in week one, called back on a phantom hold across the field.

    They were determined to make Mariota the centerpiece and it backfired, imo.

    When do you pick?

    Kerryon Johnson could be set up for next year. See who they get as OC.

    Did Henry finally win that job? Hmmmm, another draft might tell us what they think.

    If I remember right Henry did this same shit last year (not quite on this level of course) and what he did the second half of last season is what pushed him to the top of the list of guise I wanted to take at #30 (where I drafted him). Chances are he would still be there when I draft at #29 this year if I wanted him, but would be keeping one of those other guise instead.

    Honestly if I knew the answer to that question it would be a no brainer IMO. Fortunately we do not declare until Labor Day but I can see myself going back and forth on this one fer..............9 months............lol.

    Iirc, Henry was behind Demarco Murray last season and took over the #1 job in the 2nd half of the season.

    That is just it though.

    His performance wasn't awful. He simply was not getting touches.

    Over the course of the entire season, HEnry was 2nd among all RBs in DYAR (defense adjusted yards above replacement).

    Top 10 looks like this:

    1: Gurley
    2: Henry
    3: Kamara
    4: Mack
    5: Gordon
    6: Lindsay
    7: McCaffery
    8: Mixon
    9: Zeke
    10: A Jones

    Obviously, Henry doesn't have the 3 down role that makes many of these guys more valuable, but let's not pretend that he had a terrible season that was salvaged by 2 huge weeks. Henry was good throughout. The Titans offense and the playcallers failed him a lot more than he failed anybody else.

    meh i semi disagree, taking away a fantasy perspective on things. Ive seen the stats where Gurley and melving gordon are the 140+ MVP in the league based on the replacements and expected production levels.........i can see both sides of the argument
