So I am in a keeper league in which I finished in last place. So I have the #1 pick. However my keepers are less than stellar. I had sidney rice but he got hurt and Kurt Warner retired. So I need to keep two and my choices come down to Marques Colston, Steve Slaton, Pierre Thomas, Santana Moss, Lee Evans, Derrick Mason.

No it appears that players in the pool at #1 would be reggie wayne, michael turner, jamal charles, addai, schaub, romo, boldin, Maurice Jones drew desean jackson

Someone offered me Drew Brees and Andre Johnson for my #1 pick. Those guys would be my keepers. i would lose my #1 pick but gain a extra 6th rd pick..

Should I make the trade or who should I keep and take #1

You're getting two #1 picks for one...take it. Then you could get Colston and Pierre Thomas in the 2nd-3rd round most likely if you wanted them. It's a good upgrade for you.

I would take it. Sounds like the guy making the trade really wants CJ or AP.

CJ and AP are taken. This is a keeper league and those guys are long gone from years past. He would still get picks #1 and #10 in the first. I asked him who he likes he said Jamal Charles and Rashard Mendehall. I don't get it. He still gets to keep two guys as well. So maybe he things stocking up on 2nd tier guys is better than 2 elite guys. If you look at my team its obvious this is an upgrade i think. Early reaction for the league is that I am an idiot..thoughts?

It's a no-brainer. You're getting two great #1 keepers for one #1 pick. I'd take it in a heartbeat.

Thanks for the feedback.. I pulled the trigger. It is now up to the league to approve it. The league is questioning it because he would have two keeper (mendenhall and charles) Would also get my #1 and keep his #11 first round pick. I think it's an upgrade for me, but does that leave the other guy loaded? I don't think highly of his keepers now.

They shouldn't be looking at what he has now, but whether the trade itself was fair. I can't stand people vetoing a trade because a team becomes really good from it...that's not what the veto is supposed to be about. You're supposed to get better when you make a trade, that's the whole point of making a trade. The veto is supposed to be for keeping trades fair to prevent collusion or a newb from getting screwed. If the trade had been your #1 pick for two guys you would not keep, then that would not be fair and should be vetoed. But your team is getting better, his team is getting better and both teams are happy...should not be vetoed. If it is, the other teams in the league are cheating by using the veto process inappropriately to prevent their competition from getting better.

If he already has two Running backs on his squad, I don't undertsand why he traded the best WR and a top 3 QB for the #1 pick. The number 1 pick with that pool of players should be MJD. Who is he targeting to get?
