    Yeah, there are plenty of decent QBs you can pick up in the later rounds. Cutler comes to mind...Farve was almost always available in the 5th or 6th rounds. Just doesn't make sense to take one in the 1st.

    the only QB I think is worthy of a 1st round pick is Peyton Manning, simply because he is a legitimate threat to toss 50 TD's year in and year out. Brady surprised everyone, but I don't think he can repeat that feat, or even come close. Peyton can. So just the chance he could toss 50 is enough to consider picking him. That and his injury history.
    All I ask for is solid line play.

I was thinking of making my 1st 3 picks running backs this year to keep this from happening again. Any thoughts?

    as somebody else mentioned, it really depends on the scoring system for the league in question. . . more often than not, i will take RBs with my first three picks, but don't get too carried away and pass up a much higher vaue at wide receiver or quarterback. . . the league is moving more and more to RBBC, and it's harder to find backs that'll get enough carries from week to week to really justify a high pick. . .

    really, the best thing you can do is handcuff a team's top backup to any RB with a questionable injury history. . . if adrian peterson is your top pick, it's probably smarter to draft chester taylor as your 3rd or 4th back than a part-time back for another team (say, deangelo williams, or julius jones last year). . . if i take clinton portis, ladell betts moves up my rankings. . . if you aren't able to draft the backup, try to trade for him early in the season while your starter is still healthy and the backup's value is minimal. . . of course you usually don't have enough roster space to protect everybody, but it's really advisable with top RBs-- especially if the team has a good line/good overall offensive talent, or if one of your top starters is a notable injury concern. . . .


    if you have questions regarding where somebody should be drafted, this average draft position chart can be helpful. . . of course you have to draft the way YOU want (it's your team), but knowing where guys are going on average can be helpful when planning your strategy. . . manning's ADP right now is 18, which means that in most leagues you won't need to draft him in the first round. . . i just did my first mock draft of the season a few nights ago, and i got manning with the 17th pick. . . i went back for RBs in the 3rd and the 6th, giving me a lineup of manning, steven jackson, jamal lewis, jonathon stewart, chester taylor, kevin smith, plex burress, brandon marshall, santonio holmes, jericho cotchery, etc etc (this was for a ten team league). . . not everyone would be comfortable with a rookie as their 3rd back, but i'm perfectly happy with stewart-- i would have liked getting deangelo williams also, and in a real league i'd try to trade for him, but that's a team i'd be comfortable starting a season with. . .

    Been mockdrafting and noted there are few top tier wr and few tier 2 wr while you can find a lot of rb3's (feature backs of lesser teams) mid rounds. the best teams i thought were the rb,rb,wr or even rb,wr,rb. the qb,rb and then rb,qb were uglier. never tried wr in 1..inconthievable

    Besides i think last years rb inuries was a bit of a fluke...too many

    Alright, I'm thinking I might want to make a trade to shore up my RBs or WRs. I'd be willing to part with Cutler or Warner, because I think value can be easily found at the QB spot.

    Here are my QBs, WRs, and HBs. Tell me what I need to improve, and who you would get rid of to do so. This is a 12-team league, 16-man rosters.

    QB
    Jay Cutler
    Kurt Warner

    RB
    Frank Gore
    Earnest Graham
    Ricky Williams
    Kevin Smith
    Andre Hall

    WR
    Anquan Boldin
    Brandon Marshall
    Donte Stallworth
    James Jones
    Eddie Royal
    Kevin Walter

    Thanks!

    I'm not sure. I like your team. If you do make a trade, i would trade Warner (since he may not start for the entire season) and one of your upside WRs/RBs for a sure thing #2 RB/WR. Your WRs may be weak while Marshall is out, but Marshall and Boldin is a beastly duo at WR. I wouldn't do anything to drastic though...like I said, i like your team.
    I support Rahim Moore.

    1pt 50 yards pass after 200 yards
    we have to draft exactely 2qb,4rb,5wr,2te,2d,2k
    and we have to start exactely 1qb,2rb,3wr,1te/k/d.

    qb-brees and cutler
    rb-gore,lewis,lendale white,jordan
    wr-marshall,boldin,anothony gonzales,chambers,robert meachum
    te-cooley,mercedes lewis

    Thanks! I sent out a feeler right now trying to see if I can trade Warner straight up for Roy Williams (the guy has no backup QB, and Derek Anderson is his starter). Hoping he might be a little uneasy because of the concussion...

    I would probably try that trade you also mentioned, Warner + Jones/Walter for Solid #2.

    i agree with honz, you're in pretty solid shape-- maybe try to trade warner and stallworth for a better #3 WR. . . i think you'll be fine at RB, that gives you enough starting backs to play matchups (especially when andre hall takes over our starting spot ). . . .



    U29, sorry bro but i don't rate teams-- even my own. . . that team looks fine, though. . . .

    I do 12-team leagues, so it's hard to easily rate someone in a 10-team league. I won my league last year in a 12-team league, so perhaps you should compare your team to mine (see above, add PHI DEF, LJ Smith, and Matt Prater). Your team should be better than mine if you want to do well, since you only had a 10-team league. If you feel that your team is better than mine, then you probably aren't too bad. You have good WRs/TEs and QBs and solid HBs.

    That would be a hell of a trade! I'd even do Warner and Stallworth (or your other WRs) for Roy Williams...especially if you can find a solid backup QB that went undrafted. JT O'Sullivan anyone?

    I'm not expecting Stallworth to do jack this year.

    OK I have the 5th pick tonight. I’m thinking the top 4 goes like this….

    LT
    AP
    Westbrook
    Addai.

    I’m thinking Steven Jackson at #5. I think he is going to be a beast this year (2006 style). Thoughts?
    #2 fan
    Beefstew25 is #1

    Last season I happen to win my league 455.00 bucks and this is how I picked and did the same this year..
    rb
    rb
    wr
    te
    wr
    wr
    qb
    rb
    wr
    rb
    def
    k...
    You always pick up a lot of points with running backs grab 2 good one fast then grab a great wr there will still be alot on the board then go TE they really help out a lot antoino g. or tony g. should both be on the board still if not both one will be..then hit WR hard......you should come out with a great team...and for the def which you could pick up early if you want at 7 or wait the vikings really racked up the points for me...big time..

    is it 6pts for all tds? if it is, my league went like so:
    LT
    AP
    brady
    manning
    westbrook

    But if you can get an elite QB or addai,steven jax that is a great start imo. I am not too high on westbrook- I think he will get hurt again and not produce like he has.
