    I'd keep Matt Ryan, Mike Wallace, and Gregg Jennings. Theyre all at the top of their game right now.

    You don't know what youre gonna get with Peyton Manning or Carson Palmer right now. Matt Ryan is a reliable player who gets points. QB would never be your problem.

    Rashard Mendenhall and Jahvid Best both get touches, but they're not 100-yard RB's, so IMO theres no point in having them. Shonn Greene just flat out stinks.

    Youve got some interesting WR's. Laurent Robinson might be a breakout player if Blaine Gabbert gets his stuff together. So too bad Laurent Robinson lol, he's gonna rot away. Poor guy.

    You definitely keep Jennings and Wallace.

    The final spot should be between Matt Ryan and Vernon Davis. Honestly, I think I'd keep Davis.

    I've never done a keeper league, so I'm not sure what QBs better than Matty Ice would still be available come draft time. Keep that in mind. If he's going to be the best available, keep him. Otherwise I would keep Davis over him since he's top 3 at his position.

    I would obviously say keep Gayton, but I actually expect Matty Ice to do better than him due to having superior weapons. I am predicting this will be Peyton's worst season since his rookie year. Demaryius Thomas is his best weapon. That's pretty bad. The rest of their WRs suck. That's not to mention Gayton's health concerns.

    I have the 3rd overall pick after the keepers are selected, and my thought is that I need to pick a RB with my first pick, so if I don't keep a QB I won't get one until late in the 2nd round and will end up with one of the worst starters in my league.

    K. Sounds like you should hold onto Matty Ice then... unless you're willing to take a huge risk with Gayton.

    How about go with a QB at #3?

    Matt Ryan isn't that great of a fantasy QB and no one knows how Manning will play. Honestly I would keep those WRs, draft a QB 1st, and then find some RBs.

    Agree with Playmaker, Ryan is not a good fantasy QB. I would rather stay with Manning that way you have the potential of having an elite QB and probably not any worse than Ryan.

    My problem with keeping Vernon Davis over one of those receivers is, yes he'll likely lead all TE's in points, but at the end of the day that's still only a fraction of what one of those receivers could do for you.

    I'm assuming you start 3 WRs in that league. If it were me I'd keep Jennings, Wallace, and Britt and just be super stacked at WR . Let the other chips fall where they may. You should still be able to find a more than serviceable QB and RBs are a dime a dozen.

    None of your QBs or RBs jump out as "must keeps" to me.
