Post subject:  1st pick in a keeper league

I took over a team in a keeper league. The guy had a weak roster and finished last giving me the 1st overall pick in the 3 round rookies only draft as well as the regular draft.

We keep 6 player (1 has to have been a rookie from the previous season) and add our 3 new rookies to that before drafting the remaining players.

Start: 2QB, 2RB, 2WR, 1WR/RB flex, 1TE, 1K and 5IDPs with a 7 man bench.

So from what he had I kept TO, Roddy White, Tedd Ginn(rookie keeper rule) Thomas Jones(the only starting RB on the guys roster), Tony Gonzalez and Big Ben.

In the rookie only draft I know Ill get McFadden 1st overall but in the regular draft who do I take first: Lendale White, Rudi, Julius Jones, Earnest Graham, Reggie Bush or Turner?

There are some good WRs available like Housh, Roy Williams and Burress but if I take one I will be super thin at RB. Who would you take?

From that list, I think I'd take Rudi. Proven starter who puts up solid numbers every year. He's not spectacular, but he's solid.

Except for last year my opinion I would take Jones. Going to a new team with a good line and his back up if TJ Duckett. On the other hand if it's a points per reception league I might take Bush.

Rudi Johnson may be the safe choice, but I'm thinking that Michael Turner could have a big year, but that might be too early to select him. The other possibility would be Julius Jones.

Take a good look at Turner.
