Had my draft last night. Deep 12 team, 2 player keeper league. Overall I'm OK with my team even though it seemed every time my targeted player went 1 or 2 picks before me .

QB1: Michael Vick
QB2: Andrew Luck (for keeper purposes- I think he's gonna be good)
(There are loads of other QBs on the waiver wire like Fitzpatrick, Dalton, Palmer still so I'm not too worried about replacing Vick)

RB1: Michael Turner
RB2: Benjarvis Green-Ellis
FLEX: Donald Brown
WR1: Vincent Jackson
WR2: Eric Decker
TE: Jimmy Graehme
D/ST: Buffalo
K: Matt Bryant

BENCH:
WR- Nate Washington
WR- Denarious Moore
WR - Mike Williams (TB)
RB- Pierre Thomas
RB- Jacquizz Rogers
TE- Owen Daniels

I'd try to trade a WR for a #2 RB if I were you.

10-team standard scoring league. I have 4th pick, and recently traded for 5th overall as well. I believe Rodgers will be there for me at 4, but will be agonizing over the decision of Calvin or CJ2K at #5 probably until draft day . My next pick after this is at #25, then #44 after that. Any suggestions as to which route I should go?

with that gap in picks, I would get CJ2K at #5 as you are going to miss out on a ton of running backs...solid depth at wideouts to land some really solid guys at 25/44 imo...

Nicks and Harvin are no brainers. They are must starts every week. If Britt is healthy and is playing, then he is another no brainer. Otherwise I would go with Moore.

Agreed.

As mentioned, Nicks and Harvin are locks. You gotta go Moore to start the season as Britt might not even be healthy for the opener, and I think you continue to roll with him until Britt shows you he's healthy.

I have the second pick in my draft. I think Foster will go first overall. Im leading towards taking Rice or McCoy.

cant go wrong with either...

people are taking Rodgers at #1 or #2 in some drafts, and as a non believer of picking QB's that high, I think it leaves more highend rb's for the rest of us...

both should have very strong years again, flip a coin at this point for me between the two studs

Take Rice, imo... I just have a bad feeling about McCoy this year.

From Peter King's column today

"Atlanta wide receiver Julio Jones in 5.5 quarters of play this summer: 13 catches, 240 receiving yards, 18.5 yards per catch."

If you haven't had your draft yet, after Calvin Johnson, this is your WR.

Probably more comparable than most think. Jones will have the occasional huge game with 120 yards and 2-3 TDs while Fitz will give you 80-120 yards every week with the occasional TD. Can't go wrong with either one.

How would you rank these guys for a keeper league as your starting QB? General scoring stats. Luck, Stafford, Rivers, and Ryan.

I love Ryan for this year, all the talk is that they are going to tossing that ball around, the targets he has available to him are awesome, like Jones was saying recently, who are you going to double when you've got him, Roddy and Gonzo out there? Depending how serious this keeper league is though, as in if it's with people you know and you know it's really a long term thing, then it's a big ask to look away from Stafford and Luck.

Stafford......Ryan..Rivers...Luck. Now that being said, how long can you keep the guy? I know a lot of leagues it's 1 year, some are 2, and some are longer. That will certainly factor in here. If it's 1-2 then I'd still rank them as such.

Ten team's League, PPR league: who to draft first?

Stafford OR Newton in the late first, early second round?

OR

Ryan OR Manning in the third?

Who would you pick? usually in my League the QBs run away with more points byu a wide margin.
I'm worried about Stafford durability but I'm not sold about Newton rushing that much again.

Do it, I would just drop Tebow though.

Those are huge upgrades at WR and RB.
