Which RB would you take as your #1?

Postby CaptainO » Tue Jul 31, 2007 8:24 pm

Got the 14th pick in a 14 team league with 1 keeper (must be drafted 6th round or later). Unfortunately, FWP-Gore-Henry-MJD are all keepers. The top RBs that will probabbly be around at the end of the first are:

Jacobs: Love the TD potential, but not so sure about the yards or the GMen as a whole.

Edge: Not a sexy pick, but he is pretty much the only guy of this group that is guaranteed 300 touches....is that going to matter? Has their O-Line improved enough?

Portis: Tough because in a 14 team league I would have to handcuff Betts really early (hopefully he's still there in the 5th), and that's not necessarily something I would like to do.

Thomas Jones: How much is Leon going to steal from him?

Is it worth it to go with one of these guys or do I snag WR-WR (CJ/Stevonne/Wayne/TO)? Two of those four should be there. Come back with RBs the next 3 picks in a row, possibly land DeAngelo/Ahman/Lamont?

My keeper is Palmer. Scoring is no PPR with bonus for length of TDs. Start 1-2-3(WR/TE)-1-1

None...i would take Ronnie Brown if hes there...otherwise if i have to choose from that list...I will go Jacobs because hes the only one you dont know what you will be getting...and with this group that would be a good thing...im not saying these guys are bad they are great #3s, solid #2s...but not even close to being #1s in my opinion.

I'd go Jacobs hands down in a non-ppr league. The thing you should be able to count on with Jacobs is scoring.

jacobs then Jones followed by james

jacobs based on potential and schedule

Jones has enough talent, we just don't know how he will be used
will his #'s increase or decrease now that there are threats on the outside.

James will get his the question is which james will we see.

Portis, rumors of knee issues again already, I wouldn't touch him.

I'd normally go with this, but a 14 team draft can really hurt you if you don't get your RB's. It's bad enough in a 12 team.
Can a dying member of the undefeated Dolphins PLEASE Nancy Kerrigan Brady on his way out of practice ? Or Jack Ruby him. Whatever's available to you.

Thats where my thinking is going at the moment. I am really scared that when it gets back to me on the next turn I could possibly be stuck choosing from guys like T.Bell, Chester Taylor, Julius Jones, etc. This is obviously worst case scenario but I don't envision myself taking that chance.
