What to do with picks 3, 26, 31?

Postby bradd » Tue Aug 18, 2009 10:50 am

I have the third pick in a 14 team draft. which also gives me the 26th and 31st. It is a league that i get to keep two players every year, but this is the first year so i need help!!!! Im thinking AP will go 1, i think i will prob take Turner or MJD at 3. What do you think about that?? Then when it comes back to me at 26 there are quite a few WR left(White, TO, Marshall, Bowe, Houz), and QB's Brees, Brady will be gone for sure. Should i go WR at 26 and then a Qb like Rivers at 31?? With the 2 keepers in mind, any ideas?

format: QB, RB, WR, WR, WR, FLEX, TE, DEF, K. and five bench players.

Id take White if he were available there, although i doubt he will be. The rest of those guys scare me as a top WR.

Avoid Turner. I don't even have him in my top 10 RB this year. If MJD falls to you at #3 absolutely take him. If MJD/AP gone consider either Sjax or Forte.

At the turn I would go WR/RB. White and Bowe, IMO, are clearly above your other WR options. For RBs target Pierre Thomas and McFadden.

I would wait until your 4th or 5th pick for a QB. Schaub or McNabb should still be available and the potential to end up a top 5 QB.

Well, I'm still a Turner believer so I would grab him, but if MJD falls I'd grab him. At 26 you should have some decent WR choices. White may fall to you or Colston. If they are gone you'll have less of a choice and I think Welker or Bowe will probably be the best WRs left. You may look at RBs if so many WRs are off the table.

I got AD, Mo-Jo, Forte, in that order. Non-PPR, i might consider Turner also. I'd definitely be looking to go RB-WR-WR with the top 3, unless Brady or Brees falls to you at 2, and possibly Peyton at 3.
