    Would you keep Eli Manning if it cost you a 4th round pick?

    In my fantasy league,
    o You may keep up to 2 players, as your 4th and 5th round picks.
    o Anyone drafted in the prior year AFTER Round 3 is eligible to be kept.
    o 12 team, non PPR, 6pts QB TD.
    o Stafford and Cam will be kept by my colleagues.
    o I am picking 7th.

    Rodgers will go 1.01 or 1.02. Brady and Brees could conceivably be available at 1.07.

    Again, would you keep Eli in the 4th? Discuss.

    So this means everyone drafted in the first 3 rounds last year goes back in the pool, right?

    I'd hang onto him, Rick. He's got good receivers, RB's that catch, and a damn good line. I think he's worth a 4th.

    If I didn't have anyone with significantly more value to keep...

    Yeah, Id use a fourth on keeping Eli. At worst you are probably breaking even based on where he'd likely be drafted anyway.

    I'd probably let Eli go back into the pool. I wouldn't want to find Brady or Brees available with that 1st round pick with a QB already on the roster. You could likely get Eli in the 4th, or someone equivilent (Rivers, Romo). I would roll the dice.

    Thanks, guys. @White, yes, they go back in the pool.

    I have decided to throw Eli back. I can get him in the 4th anyway, and throwing him back creates options for me. The only other keeper-eligible guys on my roster from last year are Wallace and Decker. I'm not touching Wallace, and I think Decker is not worth a 4th. So, I'm going keeper-free.

    Smart decision. I've gotten Peyton/Romo/Eli during several mocks in the 6th round.
