Engel's Mailbag: Keeper questions

Joe B., Chesapeake, Va.: In a dynasty league I've been offered Andre Johnson, Jason Campbell and a first round pick for Donovan McNabb. My other QB is Ben Roethlisberger. With the pick I could probably a choice of Calvin Johnson, Marshawn Lynch, Jamarcus Russell or Brady Quinn. Is it worth the potential of the young players, or should I stick with McNabb?

Engel: McNabb has bounced back from injuries before, and could indeed return to play at a high level next season. But Roethlisberger should be a solid fantasy QB next year if he stays healthy, and Campbell looks like he can be an adequate reserve. Johnson is inconsistent and overrated, but landing a first-rounder in a dynasty league can be very tempting. While you certainly have the depth to make the move and gaining another chance to draft a top rookie is very alluring, I don't think you are getting enough for McNabb, even with the questions about his health. Campbell is just a backup, Johnson isn't as productive as advertised, and you might not be getting an immediate impact player with the pick. I'd keep McNabb or counter offer for a more dependable WR if possible, plus the first-rounder. Any owner who offers you what is essentially three players for your one is usually getting the better end of the deal.
