#1 pick in 2012

Rice
Foster
McCoy

I think I would take Rice as #1. All are legit options though. Thoughts?

Those 3 plus I wouldn't be shocked to see Rodgers or Brees in the mix.

In one league I play in,. in which stats are a little skewed against QBs (4 pts per TD throw), the top 7 scorers were QBs and 9 of top 12. Don't know if this makes QBs more valuable or less, based on scarcity at RB. That league is a quasi-PPR league, and McCoy was leading the league until the final few weeks, when Rice and Foster both passed him.

Rice was 9th overall (behind QBs and Calvin Johnson), Foster 15th and McCoy 19th, behind guys like Jordy Nelson and Victor Cruz. Interesting.

In another league which uses a more standard-type scoring setup, RBs fared much better, with Rice, McCoy and MJD making the top 10. Still, the top 5 were QBs and the point drop off from 5-6 was incredible.

I think you gotta go Brees or Rogers, unless you go with the theory that they won't replicate this season's crazy success or that 2011 was an anomaly.

Really depends on the size of the league, and score settings. If it's a larger league 12+ I'd go Rodgers or Brees- because on the come back to you it'll be slim pickings and you can always load up on mid level talent RBs to hope one breaks out.

If its PPR, 10 team league then I don't think you could go wrong with any of those 5 + MJD...which means I really hope I get the 6th pick next year.

Take a QB, especially when guys like Philip Rivers throw for 4500 yards and it's considered a bad year.

Rice, McCoy, Foster, Jones-Drew, and Forte IMO is the top 5. Of course, this is dependent on Forte being healthy to start the season which I don't think will be too long a stretch. The only caution with Forte is having a new O-coordinator.

QBs IMO are plenty enough you can get a good one in the 3rd/4th rounds, although I can definitely see arguments for Brees/Rodgers.

I'd consider Rice, McCoy, Foster, MJD for the running backs and Newton, Brees, Rodgers, Brady for the quarterbacks and Megatron and Welker for the receivers as first round picks.

I'd personally narrow it down to Rice, McCoy, Foster, Brees, Newton and Rodgers for #1 overall. I see the argument for MJD, but you never know when a guy with such a heavy workload begins to slow down.

But QBs should definitely be in the discussion. Having a great QB is pretty much a necessity to have a top notch FF team.

The question is what the drop off for QBs and RBs are. I made the championship game in one league riding Matt Ryan, while in another I lost the semifinal (on a freaking tie) with a Schaub/Sanchez (after Schaub got hurt) combo. None of those guys are usually considered top notch QBs (maybe Schaub, but he got hurt). But, in the runner-up league I had McCoy/S.Jackson/V.Jackson/Maclin/Witten doing considerable damage, and in the other one it was Forte/C.Johnson/Lynch (OK, I got lucky here)/Maclin/Wallace/Witten.

The thing is Rodgers, Brady, and Brees can get you 30+ point games, but even the more average QB can get you 20+ point games on a semi-regular basis (even Sanchez put up respectable fantasy numbers...he just had this habit of every few weeks having a complete dud). So if you can get a reliable 15-20+ point RB instead of settling for a ~5-10 point RB in a later round, it evens out.

I agree with what you are saying, but every year the top RBs seem to change - whether that be from injuries, poor production, a guy stepping up, etc.

QBs though seem to be more consistent year to year. There are guys like Newton and Vick who step up, there is less change within the elite on a year to year basis.

Cam Newton.

You get the QB numbers (which will probably improve) as well as a bunch of rushing TDs.

It's come to a time where I wouldn't be against taking one of the stud QBs first. The RB pool is as weak as ever as the only absolute sure thing in AP is injured. Still some decent choices out there like Foster, Rice, etc., but you just know the top QBs are going to produce monster numbers.

I feel like the declining # of stud RBs makes acquiring one even more valuable if you luck into the top half of the first round. If you're picking 7th or 8th, I might take the top QB but if you're picking #1 I think you take Foster or McCoy and know that even when it comes back to you, there will be multiple QBs on the board capable of putting up big numbers (Stafford, Rivers, Romo, Eli, and maybe even Vick could all be there at #21).

As the season is approaching I would take Foster #1 no doubt.

Then Rice, McCoy.

Then I would like to grab an Eli Manning type in the 3rd after grabbing a WR in the 2nd.

I'm in a 10 team auction, PPR league. TE's get 2 points for every 15 yards too.

I'd be shocked if Gronkowski isn't the top pick, money wise this year.

I think Foster, although my office uses some custom rules, QBs get 1p/25y instead of 50y, for example. So we heavily overvalue QBs, Ks and DEFs... In my league, Rodgers is 1st AINEC...

I think you can check NFL.com for fantasy info, and the ADP, and Foster is securely in the #1 slot.

Yeah 25 yards/ 1 point is standard.

A QB should be 1st. At the end of the year the QBs are the highest point scorers. Brady and Rodgers should go 1-2 in every draft IMO.

But the difference between an elite QB and an Good QB isn't as great of a difference between an elite RB and a good RB

Foster, Rice, or McCoy are all options, imo.

I'd wait to take a QB until rounds 3 or 4.

My strategy is: RB in round 1 (Unless you have pick, say, 6-12 or however big your league is, and then you take a QB or Calvin Johnson). In round 2 you take a QB that's slipped, or a great WR. In round 3 you can start looking at QBs like Jay Cutler, who is an established QB, but is somewhat of a sleeper this year.

WR after that, and then grab a #2 RB like Doug Martin and you're golden.

I take Foster 1st and don't think twice. He'll be the best player in the NFL this season.

Exactly, and that's why RB are always valued. This year more than years past I feel it's even more scarce. QB and WR look relatively deep after the top tier. RB, not so much. So many question marks and teams running a 2 RB system.
