In about a month or so I am going to be drafting my fantasy team. This is a 3 person keeper league and I am wondering who I should keep. We are also nto allowed to keep QBs.

Potential Keepers:

Antonio Brown WR Pit
Larry Fitzgerald WR Ari
Jimmy Graham TE NO
Greg Jennings WR Min
Chris Johnson RB Ten
Doug Martin RB TB
Ray Rice RB Balt
Cecil Shorts WR Jac
DeMaryius Thomas WR Den


Alright now for why I am having trouble with who to pick. Right now I am leaning towards keeping Martin, Rice, and Graham/Thomas. I've been told a smart choice could be Johnson, Martin, Rice and then I wouldn't have to worry about drafting any RBs. Brown could also make sense as he will be the number 1 target. Thomas makes sense since he is Peyton's number 1 target but I am afraid Manning will have too many targets this year. I would also probably trade Martin if I kept him because I usually don't trust sophmore year for players. Fitzgerald is also a smart pick to keep because now he has a QB in Arizona.

This is a PPR league as well. So can you guys help me. Thoughts on what I should do?

Drop Fitz, Cards don't have the QB for him to make the points, nor are their any other players worth watching on the Cards so he will be doubled up on a lot.

Gotta be either Martin, Graham, or Rice

Besides Graham, there isn't a clear cut number 2 TE.

I think I like Martin more than Rice, although I have no idea about either teams offensive lines.

Can't respond without knowing the scoring system, starting spots and size of rosters and league.

Don't sleep on Fitz this year. He will be top 10.

Fitz, Thomas, Brown, Shorts....I love Shorts
Martin/Rice, Johnson

with it being a PPR, Ray Rice is an absolute no brainer
