Haze keeper rules in a nutshell

Each Haze owner gets the opportunity to keep two players in the round the player was originally drafted for the first season. Every subsequent season the player is kept, he moves up one round in the draft.

Since this is the first keeper season for Haze, all keepers will be kept in the round originally drafted.

  • LaDainian Tomlinson, Chargers (1st round)
  • Willis McGahee, Ravens (2nd round)

Hazean analysis

Haze owners Michael McNeil and Blaine Clancy team up to analyze the potential keepers for each owner in a PTI-like debate. Enjoy!

McNeil: Brad had the most points in the league last year thanks to one LaDainian Tomlinson. But he failed to make the playoffs despite LT2’s contributions. This season, Brad has a chance to start new with a solid base at RB. He obviously needs to keep LaDainian Tomlinson as a first rounder, but also should keep Willis McGahee in the second round. Having those two guys would give Brad a good foundation at runningback around which Brad could build a playoff team.

Clancy: LaDainian Tomlinson is a no brainer. LT2 is the best fantasy football player overall.

Marion Barber is more of a gamble as Brad’s second keeper. The starting job at runningback between Julius Jones and Marion Barber has yet to be decided. However, Barber saw limited action last year and still racked up 16 touchdowns. That stat alone makes him worth holding onto as an 8th round pick.
