Yes, Jed, I most likely will. By the 4th round I hope to have my rb position solidified and will be filling out my wr corps. Taylor could put up good to great numbers if he stays healthy. I am just not so sure that he will. It’s that simple. Yes he may very well be gone in the second round of any decent draft, I just won’t be the one picking him. Remember these are just my opinions and in no way reflect the opinions of many of the intelligent users of this forum.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

I generally am willing to discount supposed 'injury history' and am generally a Freddy fan, mostly since I had him as a rookie. I get attached to my rook's who perform well. If a guy is healthy, he's healthy. If he is coming back from an injury that others have been hindered by, I am wary. Players definitely have different tolerances for pain and the ability to play thru it, and that may affect my player rankings a bit.

That said, I wouldn't take him until the 3rd round. The draft would have to go very wrong for me to take him even at the end of the 2nd round. 4th round? Sure, I probably have 2 RB by then anyway. he is certainly worth the risk for that payoff.

There are guys I stay away from to a point, but if they fall far enough, they usually are worth the gamble.

Completely agree. If he's there in the third round, even if I have two backs already, I'll take him. Once he has a good game, I'll trade him for a top WR. He's too good to pass up that early, in my opinion.
