Upcoming draft

Postby adamh » Mon Aug 03, 2009 9:39 am

The league is 10 team H2H, with: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, W/R, W/T, TE, Def. Having kept Matt Schaub for a 12th rounder and Steve Slaton for a 17th, I am now looking at the 4th pick overall. Based on your rankings, the top five available go:

1) AP
2) Jones Drew
3) S-Jax
4) Tomlinson
5) R. Moss

After that, most of the big name receivers are available, including A Johnson, S Smith, R Wayne, Boldin, Colston, and Marshall (Fitzy, C Johnson, Jennings, White, Bowe all kept), as well as the big name QB's, including Brees, Brady, and Peyton. I imagine those WR's will be moving pretty quickly off the board, but im not sure.

Is my best bet to grab the best available RB in that top 5 and grabbing best available WR on my next pick? Or should I snag Moss or Johnson right away and see what happens next round?

i'd definitely go with any of those RB's. Then you can stock up on WR's the next 3-4 rounds knowing you have 2 top 10 RB's. In the 2nd round you should still be able to get Boldin/Colston/Marshall. Maybe even 2 of them.

Dont draft Marshall or Boldin. Go for Reggie Wayne (if other top WR are going, like Andre J)

Lets say AP, Jones-Drew, and S-Jax go. Do I really take LT there? I'm skeptical. Somebody knock some sense into me.......

in what most people consider a bad year for LT, he was the #8 back. a bad year...#8.




#8....in a bad year. what's a half decent year? 4 or 5? LT's a great pick there.

I'd personally stay away from LT. His last 3 years have been all going down hill. From total yardage, to yards per carry. His ceiling is last years numbers. Now that they know Rivers can pass very well, expect that again this year. And LT will be limited on total touches, giving the ball more to Sproles. He's just not worth the early gamble, especially with your first pick.

Im kind of hoping that S-Jax comes to me, and I think theres a good chance he does. I don't know why, but im starting to have a good feeling about S-Jax as a mid first round pick. It seems everyone around there is risky (injuries, 2nd year, getting old). Might as well go for the upside, right?

Agreed. No locks this year. Not that there ever are! That is why so many are going with WR early because they are as close to locks as you can get, but I just think it's too conservative (even though it's "outside the box" kind of thinking) because the upside of an SJAx is 2000 total yards with 10-15 TD's whereas Fitz's upside is not there. But when SJax is on the sidelines I'll have plenty of told ya sos coming my way!!
