    I'm in a keeper league that actually runs through the Super Bowl, so not only do you need to have good players, you also need to have good players that will advance in the playoffs. Makes it doubly challenging. Anyway, we are allowed one keeper per year, and this year, we have Kurt Warner, that we get to keep for a 9th round pick. We also have the #1 pick in the draft, but we've received several offers for that spot. So I want to present to you three possible lineups (through four rounds) and I'd like your opinion as to which lineup would be better. Keep in mind that we already have Warner at QB.

    Lineup #1:
    overall #1 - RB Adrian Peterson
    overall #20 - WR Reggie Wayne
    overall #21 - RB Brandon Jacobs
    overall #40 - RB Darren McFadden

    Lineup #2:
    overall #3 - RB DeAngelo Williams
    overall #18 - RB Marion Barber
    overall #20 - WR Reggie Wayne
    overall #21 - RB Brandon Jacobs

    Lineup #3:
    overall #4 - WR Larry Fitzgerald
    overall #17 - RB Brian Westbrook
    overall #18 - RB Marion Barber
    overall #20 - WR Reggie Wayne

    *Note: some guys you might think would be available at, say, #3, won't be, b/c they're being kept by other guys in the league...i.e., Michael Turner.

    We play fairly standard scoring, with 1 point per reception as well. I love the thought of getting Peterson, but, through two trade downs, we could have a 2-headed RB monster of Westbrook and Barber, plus an unbelievable WR duo of Fitz and Wayne.

    Any advice here? Thanks!

    I like lineup #3 the best. In a ppr league with Fitzgerald, Wayne and Westbrook on your team you should be in good shape. All are likely to be on playoff teams as well.

    I agree, but I want some more opinions. Giving up Peterson would be very tough, but I think it would be worth it. If you had the #4 pick, had Warner in the fold already (keeper in the 9th round), and the following guys were off the board....

    - Peterson
    - Jones-Drew
    - Slaton
    - Turner
    - Calvin Johnson
    - Forte
    - Chris Johnson

    ...Who would you take with #4? Tomlinson? Steven Jackson? Gore? DeAngelo? One of the 3 great WR (Moss, Fitz, Andre J)?
