Tough keeper decisions

I have a pretty tough choice here.
We start 2 QBs and 1 uni-flex and QB scoring is slightly weighted.

Here's the deal, we keep 9 guys:

Dalton, EJ Manuel (these two I have to keep because of the scoring and availability of QBs in draft)

Charles, Murray, Bell, Brown, Ellington, Thomas, Vereen, Ridley, Foster, Blount (insane RB corps - can probably only keep 3 or possibly 4)

Green, VJax, Decker, Maclin

Gates, Pitta, Rudolph (quality options but don't make the cut)

I have 3 stud WR well possibly 4, but with two QBs and those RBs I'm not sure who to cut and who to keep. Foster isn't without risk, Vereen and Ridley will timeshare so that kinda hurts, Thomas IDK man - part of a timeshare again, Ellington sarting - I love his upside this year. Charles, Murray and Bell kinda lock in ya know with PPR and those beasts.

It basically comes down to keeping both QBs, Charless, Murray, Bell, Ellington, Foster, Green and I can't decide on second WR - VJax I always like him, Decker (but he is risky - definitely a stud outpaced reception zone over Welker and big play area over Marshall last year and that's not easy) - or not take the plunge and just keep Green, Qbs, the insane staple of RBs and just focus on IDPs and WR ni the draft. I have about 4-5 locks and the rest are a virtual toss-up.

    Even in a 2 QB league I can't see any scenario where you keep Manuel over any of those RBs. Can't you keep more RBs and try to package them for a QB? You need to take your RB depth and use them to fix your QB problem STAT. Keep the best players regardless of position and start working the trade phones. You cannot win a two QB league with Dalton and Manuel as your starters.

    I'd keep Charles, Murray, Bell, Green, Foster, Ellington, VJax and yuck Dalton. I threw up a little in my mouth typing that last one but you have no choice in a two QB league with your options. That leaves one spot. If it's a PPR I'd definitely keep Vereen but if it is not then consider taking one of the remaining WRs or TEs even though Vereen will get drafted before all of them. All four (excluding Gates) are pretty decent options.

    With all of that RB depth on your team others must be desperate for RBs. You must be able to work a deal out with someone.

    Is this a dynasty league? Can you keep the same 9 again next year? If so I might alter that list a little.

    Good luck.

    Can you trade any of your depth for a better QB?

    Dalton is a better fantasy QB than he is an NFL QB. Good thing most leagues don't play through the NFL playoffs. In the regular season he's just fine.

    I think Dalton will regress this year. See if you can snag Tannehill. EJ Manuel looks terrible so far. I'd rather have Bridgewater or Hoyer.

    Guys - I was able to deal off Green adn Dalton and snag up Wallace and Stafford. So my need for a QB1 just went away in a big way. Bit of a steep price to pay, but I'm glad I was able to turn something. Now my team will be a bit more balanced. I'm trusting in a friend of mine who is close to the Dolphins.
