So we are in year 19 of my leagues fantasy football group. We do an auction draft and we each get one keeper. There are other complicated and different settings but here’s just a quick overview. Each year a players salary increases based on performance and “contract” for lack of a better term. The cheaper you are the more standard yearly increase I played gets.
Example: a player that goes for a $1 automatically goes up $6 the following year, plus his performance also gets an increase.
I have two options and I go back and forth everyday.
-Jamarr Chase is $23 to keep (up from $13 last season)
-Javonte Williams is $18 to keep (up from $11 last season)
Question is, who do you keep? If I’m just looking at next season it’s easy, I keep Chase. But long term having an elite back for a huge discount is huge. So maybe Williams has the better long term outlook.
We also have this option called a topper. Long story short, if a player was on your team from last year, you can top 1 player. How this works is if another player wins a bid on a player that you had last season, you get the option to take him. The winning bid then gets one more chance to bid again.
Example: winning bud is Chase for $50. I top him…then the winning bidder can say $65 if he wanted. I get him for $66 if I chose. Or I let him go. So chances are I get both back, one is just no longer a Keeper due to salary.
So what would you guys choose??? I know not everyone plays FF, but I’m just bored and seeing if I’m crazy even considered JWill
