Hey John. 12 team keeper .5PPR....can keep 3 of: A Rodgers, M Forte, D Martin and J Graham. On the fence....Cheers!
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:02 Guest
 
 
2:02
 
John Halpin: 
Definitely Martin and Graham. I'd lean Forte for the third keeper, since the QB1 pool is so deep.

3rd pick in dynasty rookie draft. If Bernard and Lacy go 1-2, who do you take at 3? Or trade the pick for Ben Tate?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:02 CJ
 
 
2:03
 
John Halpin: 
Trade sounds interesting, but what about Montee Ball?

Best for dynasty leagues: Austin, Hopkins or Patterson?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:03 Guest
 
 
2:05
 
John Halpin: 
Hopkins. Like 'em all, but Austin is so small, and Patterson is a bit raw (lots of potential, though).

do you know of a service that will send news to your phone? Let me know if my players are inactive? I have to work on Sundays and got burned a few times last year.

would you trade Jamaal Charles and cam newton for arian fostor tony ROMO and kendall wright or greg jennings
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:07 Guest
 
 
2:08
 
John Halpin: 
No. Charles > Foster, Newton > Romo. The added WR doesn't make me change my mind.

Re: Montee Ball, do you think he'll be the broncos starting back for the long term?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:08 CJ
 
 
2:09
 
John Halpin: 
Probably. I'm more worried about short-term than long-term. If he can't pass block, he won't play.

also, what do u see out of Tavon Austin for this season and where would you take him in drafts?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:09 Guest
 
 
2:10
 
John Halpin: 
His ADP appears to be 8th round, and that sounds fine. 60-800, maybe? Seems like a guy who could have big YAC, so that yardage could go up.
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:10 John Halpin
 
 
2:11
 
John Halpin: 
Sorry - 10th round ADP at FOXSports.com. That's a good buy.

[Comment From JordanJordan: ]
In the third year of a 10-team keeper league. Given that many elite players may be kept, should I keep my best guys (D. Bryant - forfeit 2nd round pick & Forte - 3rd round pick) or go for value by keeping D. Murray - forfeit 14th round pick?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:11 Jordan
 
 
2:12
 
John Halpin: 
Murray first, Dez/Forte a close call depending on what you think the available players will look like after keepers are declated.

is now the time to be trying to unload arian fostor?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:12 Guest
 
 
2:14
 
John Halpin: 
Yes, but not for 50 cents on the dollar. If someone still likes him better than Charles, McCoy, Spiller, Lynch, and maybe Rice/Morris/T-Rich, I'd strongly consider it.

Is Jordan Cameron for real?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:14 Guest
 
 
2:15
 
John Halpin: 
Looks like it. Good athlete, excellent offensive coordinator. Big range of possible outcomes, though. Could be huge, might disappoint. I'd gamble in Round 10 - but the hype train is getting crowded, so you might not even get him there.

[Comment From FenwayFaithfulFenwayFaithful: ]
John- Long time since I've been in one of your chats, hope all is well.. How concerned are you w/Jam Charles foot? Plus, would u keep Jam or Richardson as your keeper?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:16 FenwayFaithful
 
 
2:16
 
John Halpin: 
Booo, Red Sox! Not too concerned with what I've heard about Charles' foot - keep him.

[Comment From Lane FrostLane Frost: ]
Will Thompkins and Sudfeld fill the missing pieces in N.E.?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:16 Lane Frost
 
 
2:18
 
John Halpin: 
Maybe, but don't reach too high. 11th/12th rounds on Thompkins, maybe? Less sure about Sudfeld, since Gronk should be back after a game or two.

[Comment From ZachZach: ]
Keeper league...1 keeper for each team...i have AP...1 guy has to drop either arian or doug...1 team has to drop 2 of 3-richardson,rice,charles...should i go for a rb or take an elite wr like aj green?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:18 Zach

Would take all those guys over A.J. if available.

is MJD going to have a huge year?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:19 Guest
 
 
2:19
 
John Halpin: 
I don't know, but I wouldn't bet on "huge." Solid, maybe. He's my RB13.

Do you think Ben Tate will land a starting gig next season in FA? Any though on possible landing spot?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:19 CJ

Yes, but way too early to tell where.

[Comment From GusGus: ]
Who do you think will be the starting RB in Green Bay ? I picked up Eddie Lacy . Do you think he'll be productive?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:20 Gus
 
 
2:20
 
John Halpin: 
Yes, but it's still Aaron Rodgers' offense. They won't go ground-heavy.
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:20 John Halpin
 
 
2:21
 
John Halpin: 
Lacy is my RB28 - I have him on the low side.
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:21 John Halpin
 
 
2:22
 
[Comment From CJCJ: ]
Does Ryan Williams ever make an impact?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:22 CJ

I wish I knew. Wouldn't count on it.

Peterson.

Believe the hype about daryl richardson?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:22 Zach
 
 
2:23
 
John Halpin: 
Yes, but he's getting very popular. I was in two drafts yesterday, and he went in the 4th round of both.

2:23
 
[Comment From TavoTavo: ]
How well do you think Steven Jackson and Demarco Murray will have this year?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:23 Tavo
 
 
2:24
 
John Halpin: 
I have Murray at RB15 and Jackson at RB17. Pretty good, but I'm not in the camp that thinks Jackson's move to ATL will get him to explode.

Week 1 Zach Sudfield @ BUF or Vernon Davis vs GB?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:24 Sweet Lou
 
 
2:25
 
John Halpin: 
Matchups already? Gotta go Davis until we see Sudfeld actually produce in a game. And if he goes 9-127-2, I apologize in advance.

Best defense to draft and when?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:27 Guest
 
 
2:28
 
John Halpin: 
Seahawks, but I don't draft DSTs until the last 2 rounds. Usually not worth reaching earlier.

If he's free? Sure. If the Raiders get four or five new offensive linemen, DMC might be productive.

Hard to say when he'll take BJGE's job. How's this, off the top of my head: 150 carries, 650 yards; 50 receptions, 400 yards.

2:38
 
John Halpin: 
I'm starting to sour a bit on Hillman, but he's my highest ranked of the three. Not so high on Redman, even with Bell's injury. Powell needs Ivory to get hurt to have a BIG impact. I'm far lower than 50/50 on Redman, but 50/50 on the others.

Thursday August 22, 2013 2:39 Zach
 
 
2:42
 
John Halpin: 
I've revised since, and he's 7 on my overall board. However, draft strategy might dictate that you pick him lower. He's a better player than Forte, but you might be better off drafting Forte as part of a RB/RB start. Does that make sense?

Thursday August 22, 2013 2:44 Burgh fan
 
 
2:46
 
John Halpin: 
That it's a mess. Dwyer reported for camp overweight, so he might have a harder job convincing the coaches than Redman does. I have Redman ranked higher at the moment.

is there anything left in the Antonio Gates tank this year?

2:47
 
John Halpin: 
Reports from camp are good, but he's old, and looked fat and slow last season. He's my TE10 - not too excited.

If I pick up McCoy do I pick up Bryce and hold on to him ?

John Halpin: 
Depends on where you have to draft him. He won't go very late - Round 9/10, maybe. I like him there.

[Comment From Tom BradyTom Brady: ]
Bernard, Hilton, Vick, Richardson, Lacy, and Tate are my bench players (10 team league). What about playing without a kicker or def for a couple of weeks?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:48 Tom Brady
 
 
2:49
 
John Halpin: 
I'd probably cut Tate. I like him, but he's replaceable in this case. You can't play with empty roster spots.

Morris or T-Rich? and if anyone wants to do a 10 team mock draft go to the mock draft page and enter trips 10 team draft...it has about 30 mins to go b4 it starts to draft.
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:49 Zach

John Halpin: 
Morris by a hair, but my opinion isn't popular.

No, but Givens could get there.

Will Spiller be effective behind a terrible offense?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 2:58 Adam

John Halpin: 
He averaged 6.0 yards per carry last year, and they weren't good then. High floor, massive ceiling.

[Comment From EricEric: ]
League loves taking QB early...last year 10 were gone by end of 2rd. Sitting at 3rd, would you risk leaving QB till 4th, even if repeat of last yr?
 
 
Thursday August 22, 2013 3:01 Eric
 
 
3:02
 
John Halpin: 
Yes (unless two QBs start each week in your league). Unless someone else takes a backup very early, you can stock up at other positions and still get a good QB, since they're 12 deep. Wait for round 5 or 6, and get Wilson/Romo/RGIII/Kaepernick.
