Draft position

Postby salipp » Thu Aug 06, 2009 10:06 am

I have the #7 draft position in this years draft, 12 teams, redraft, no ppr. Thoughts on picking WR,QB,RB,RB. This would probably net Fitz and either Manning or Brees . Now you probably will not get a true RB1 but with the question marks all through the first round, what does everyone think of this option?Roster starters are QB,2RB,2WR,1TE. QB's score quite high taking 8 of the top 10 spots last year.

I think Cheese's post here http://football.razzball.com/value-based-drafting helps quantify why you shouldn't take a QB early. The idea that 8 out of the top 10 were QB'a just shows you that the 8th QB taken has a good chance of being very close in points to the 1st QB taken. In ESPN standard scoring I believe 7 out of the top 10 fantasy scorers were QB's. There are good arguments to go WR/WR as well. I am a RB/RB guy usually, but would go RB/WR/RB if I thought the right RB would fall to me in the third (Ronnie!).
Johnny Ringo: All right, 'lunger'. Let's do it.
Doc Holliday: Say when.

I could see taking a WR or QB in the first or 2nd round, but not both. You would be greatly hurt at the RB spot. IS this a PPR league? If not, you are probably looking at Pierre Thomas and Addai for your two RB. Not that solid at all.
I'm the Cleave, so thats what you call me. That, or um, Cleaver, or his Cleaveness, or um, El Cleaverino, if your not into the whole brevity thing.

12 team 1 PPR, 5 bonus points for 100 yard rec. and rushing, and 300 yard passing

QB - eli manning
RB - CJ, Ronnie Brown
Flex - Bradshaw
WR - Fitz, hines ward, Louis Murphy
TE - celek
Def - Texans
K - akers
bench - micheal bush, ricky williams, mcfadden, malcolm floyd, Roy Williams, Mike williams (sea)
