Cook or Mixon?

I am in a keeper league. My keepers are Lesean McCoy, Michael Thomas, Julio Jones & Jameis Winston.

I have the 4th pick. The players ranked at the top of the non-keeper list are:

Mike Evans
Fournette
Baldwin
Lamar Miller
Alshon Jeffery
Terrelle Pryor
Demaryus Thomas
Marshawn Lynch
Allen Robinson
Dalvin Cook
Davante Adams
Kareem Hunt
Joe Mixon
Kelvin Benjamin
Mark Ingram
Bilal Bowell
Jordan Reed
Etc...

Would love to get Evans to pair with Jameis, or get Fournette as my 2nd RB and maybe future keeper. Although I doubt either falls to 4. (one guy ahead of me needs a QB, so maybe there's a shot one of em fall).

But I'm leaning to taking a flyer on one of Cook or Mixon as a young RB to pair with Shady, and hopefully hit on the right one, becoming a young keeper. Which one would you take? Cook or Mixon? Or would you do something else? What about Hunt?

I would not have kept Winston. He is going between the 10th & 12th rounds so you could have probably grabbed him late in the draft or drafted a better one.

I would take Mike Evans. You never know what you are going to get with a rookie but you know what you are getting with Evans. Try to pair shady up with a guy like Hunt or Powell in the next round if those 2 are gone.

Oh, I'm taking Evans at 4 if he's there for sure. He will likely be gone. So looking at rookie RB over another receiver that high or Miller/Lynch.

Probably right about Winston. Although I think he has a big year with those weapons. But not really a keeper. Rest of my team was garage tho. Only other keeper quality were a couple other receivers, and didn't want to keep 3. Probably should have tho. Thanks Wayne/

Mixon splitting 3 ways with Hill and Bernard. Plus coach Lewis has loyalty to vets (he stuck with Green-Ellis way longer than anyone else would have). So, I have to say Cook over Mixon. That said, I would take McCaffrey over both Cook or Mixon.

Cook over Mixon. Just seems like Cook will have the much better opportunity to make an impact w/ a solid # of carries where as Mixon may really be limited in his touches until at least mid way or more into the season.

Ya, Evans not being a keeper was a shocker to everyone. Some dumb Patriots homer decided to keep Cooks over Evans. (He kept Freeman, Howard, Cooks & Gronk).

I ended up not having to make a decision between Cook/Mixon/McCaffery. Evans went first obviously, then Lynch, then McCaffery, so I took Fournette 4th.


QB Winston or Wentz
RB McCoy
RB Fournette
WR Julio Jones
WR Michael Thomas
TE Doyle
Flex Robert Kelley
D/ST Rams
K Crosby

Bench

WR Keenan Allen
WR Pierre Garcon
RB Thomas Rawls
WR Mike Wallace
TE Austin Hooper
QB W or W

Fournette was best pick of choices you had left.
