I didn't even know who Phillip Lindsay was at the time, I brought this on myself and deserved to be slapped by the long dick of WAR.

Here it is, the mock draft to end all mock drafts. The "best" keeper selections in the history of each owner/franchise in WAR history: https://www.forthesports.com/forums/...80&postcount=2

1. Gonzo - John Abraham, DL, 2009 (Even J.J. Watt was never kept. Runner up: an undocumented keeper slot from 2008)
2. PF - David Wilson, RB, 2013 (Had to look this dude up to remember. Career rush yards: 504)
3. WMD - Jacksonville Jaguars, D/ST, 2018 (Only the third time a D/ST has been kept, the Jags finished a mere 15th in points.)
4. Xio - Marcus Mariota, QB, 2017 (I probably have the least questionable keeper ledger of anyone, but Mariota was a bust)
5. Cain - Fred Davis, TE, 2012 (Tons of choices here pre-dating Cain. Davis put up a whopping 24 catches and no scores this year)
6. Kyle - Josh Cribbs, WR/KR, 2010 (Nothing egregious here, but Cribbs had his worst year as a returner and was never kept again)
7. Brodie - Josh Gordon, WR, 2018 (Brodie kept three wideouts this year. Probably wishes he didn't.)
8. Grizz - Donte Stallworth, WR, 2008 - (He had 17 catches and one TD this year, then was suspended for all of 2009)
9. LT - Zach Miller, TE, 2011 - (Miller had four catches in four games in 2011, then was out of the NFL til 2015 somehow)
10. Jughead - Lofa Tatupu, LB, 2008 - (The first IDP ever kept in WAR history. He probably should also have been the last)
11. scottyboy - Eli Manning, QB, 2009, '10, '12, '13, '15 (Pretty sure no other player has ever been kept five times by same owner)
12. towelie - Ben Tate, RB, 2014 (Another player I couldn't remember. He had 371 yards in the rest of his career after being kept)
13. KCJ - Marc Bulger, QB, 2008 (It's hard to believe he was keeper-worthy in 2008. Stats confirm it to be true)
14. Raider - Josh Freeman, QB, 2011 (Threw 16 TDs and 22 INTs in 2011, then somehow got kept again in 2012)
15. MQT - LenDale White, RB, 2009 (Rushed for 222 yards this year and never played again. SAD!)
16. Borat - Steve Slaton, RB, 2010 (Two years removed from 1,200 yards as a rookie, Slaton had 93 in 2010)
17. D-Unit - Brett Favre, QB, 2010 (I'd love to know why D kept Favre in what became the final season of his career. 11 TD, 19 INT)
18. Jensen - Adrian Peterson, RB, 2014 (Child abuser played one game. This team kept Ryan Mathews a record three times though)
19. Zak - Beanie Wells, RB, 2009 (Tough call here over such legends as Shonn Greene, T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Bernard Berian)
20. Brown - Justin Tucker, K, 2014 and 2015 (The only kicker ever kept in WAR. I dare someone to keep a head coach!)

Most times kept in WAR history (as best I can tell):

Tom Brady - 11 times (by 7 different owners)
Drew Brees - 11 times (by 6 different owners)
Aaron Rodgers - 10 times
Adrian Peterson - 9 times (You guys let me take him 39th overall as a rookie when the WAR began in 2007)
Larry Fitzgerald - 8 times
Matt Ryan - 8 times
Frank Gore - 7 times
Wes Welker - 7 times
Peyton Manning - 7 times
Lesean McCoy - 7 times
Marshawn Lynch - 7 times
A.J. Green - 7 times
Rob Gronkowski - 7 times
Brandon Marshall - 7 times
Cam Newton - 7 times
Calvin Johnson - 7 times
Matt Forte - 7 times
Jamaal Charles - 7 times
Matt Stafford - 7 times (this seems VERY undeserved. It's more than Big Ben)
.
.
.
Ryan Mathews - 5 times (disrespectfully low)

I know. Some of you are absolved of past owners' sins. I don't have a history indicating who took over for who in what year.

I kept Lofa because I inherited a god awful team if I remember correctly. He was the top IDP for at least a couple of years.

I think whoever had the team before me keeping Dexter McCluster was worse than Cribbs.

So you weren't an original WAR member, but became one after just one season?

Chester Taylor was worse and you kept him the same year. But I was making a point with Lofa. First IDP to be kept.

I struggled to pick one for your franchise. I looked up both players. Cribbs was one of those epic kick return guys like Harvin, Sproles, and Hester that was insanely valuable in this league only. But Cribbs was only kept twice and this time it was a down year.

Actually I think I joined several years later now that I think of it and that history wasn't all me. I'm looking into this.

I kept Marshawn Lynch in 2009 and again in 2017. Never really realized that.

Yea, I didn't join until 2015. But I definitely had Lofa in another league at one point.

They should be posted on page 1 of this thread. Please do it if you can.

The league began in 2007 though ... do we have that draft too?

There is or was a character limit per post. I think I tried before, but Damix may have made some changes since then.
