    Posted: 03 Aug 2013 at 11:36am
So, I'm in a keeper league where I'm one of two teams that did not keep their first round choice from a year ago. I was able to keep CJ Spiller for a 7th round choice already.

I have the 9th slot in the draft.
I now have the first selection in this year's draft, since the other team that did not select a 1st round keeper is in the 12th slot.
When we complete our first round picks, the draft will snake back and I will have the 4th pick in round 2.

Standard Scoring Format - 12 team league
1QB/2RB/3WR/1TE/1TEorWR_flex/1RBorTEorWR_flex

The available players I'm looking at are Trent Richardson, Jamaal Charles, and Marshawn Lynch.
After this selection, should I go wide receiver in the second, or back to RB to try to get say Alred Morris, Stephen Jackson, or Chris Johnson?

Since it's a real competitive league, I cant afford to make a mistake and would appreciate any advice.

Next year, I will have the option of keeping the 1st round selected player for my 1st round choice.

I would go with Trent Richardson since you can keep the player again next year.  When considering how Norv Turner's RBs have thrived over the years, I think Richardson could ascend into the top 3 RB discussion next year.

I would take Charles. While Richardson has more upside, there is also more risk there. Running backs have thrived in Andy Reid's offense, remember Brian Westbrook out of the backfield?
I would then target an ELITE receiver only (Megatron, Green, Marshall, or Bryant). If none of those are available, I would grab an elite QB and get a step ahead of the competition.
You will already have two great RBs so get good value at another position.

If you want more advice email me at fantasy_cyril@yahoo.com. I'm working on a mailbag post and would love for you to be part of it
