$200 auction league 14 teamer; PPR
May keep up to two players for next year that are under $15 currently. They will inflate by $5 for next year.

My options:
A Abdullah $2 ($7 next year)
J McKinnon $1 ($6 next year)
I Powell $1 ($6 next year)
T Hightower $1 ($6 next year)
Marvin Jones $6 ($11 next year)

Thoughts on 0,1, or 2 to keep based on next year's values.

This is what makes me lean towards J McKinnon as a possibility:

Entering his age 31 season, Adrian Peterson will be the highest paid running back in the NFL (Peterson is due to make $12 million in 2016, which is close to $2.5 million more than the next closest player at his position). As the best player at his position, this salary is deserved…his 2017 salary, however, is an exorbitant $18 million.

This amount would be nearly twice as much as the next running back. Add to this, the fact that: Peterson will be 32 years old in 2017, none of this money is guaranteed if Peterson is cut, and the upcoming draft may include the best running back class we’ve seen (for reference, a mid-first round rookie draft pick will make close to $2 million)…we have all the makings for Adrian Peterson’s final season in Minnesota being 2016.

I would have gone Abdullah or Mckinnon.
