I get to keep one of the following...
DeAngelo Williams in round 8
Dorial Green-Beckham in round 9
DGB just needs something to click between his head and his physical gifts and he'll be a stud. I also get to keep him for up to three years if I want in rounds 9, 7, then 5 respectively.
Given that keeper structure, I think long-term DGB is the better risk/reward than Williams who is a RB on the wrong side of 30, although he'll get a lot of opportunities short term. I drafted Williams round 10 last year specifically because he was getting a start or two early. Now he's guaranteed four starts...does it justify round 8 in a deep league? 36 RBs taken before round 8 last year, so backups already coming off the board before then.
Short term play, or long term risk/reward?
I'm leaning Williams because more people may be keen on him after last year. By week 5 when Bell is back, I'll have been hopefully been able to find a replacement on the wire, or one of my many late round RB choices will be featured more. Always some unknown breakout star, or someone getting hurt. Then again, maybe not.
Maybe I'd be able to snag DGB in the 9th round without keeping him anyway. Then again, maybe not.
