Depends on the league. I'll take Tomlinson if I think there are competent owners and Larry Johnson if I think the owners are not so competent.

This is the same answer I would have given.

and the fact that I am a 'Bama fan doesn't hurt, either

At first glance, Alexander...he's the man for sure, and the defenses he plays are still going to be pretty weak, especially inter-division. They aren't going to stop giving him the rock for those 1-3 yard TD's.

Only scary thing will be if they have the division locked up by week 16, but you have to go with the guy who has the best chance to dominate every week. Playing ARZ, STL, and SF defense twice each makes a nice start. ;-D

neil rackers...



I'd probably take LT.. I don't think he's quite reached his potential the past 2 seasons and expect him to break out soon enough.. not to say he's doing bad by any means, of course, but I think he's capable of putting up monster numbers that dwarf his already top tier RB numbers.. he came within 60 yds of breaking faulk's total yds from scrimmage record in 2003 and I think he'll push that again one of these years.. I also don't think rivers being in there will have much of a negative impact on his fantasy value if any at all...

though I could easily see myself picking LJ on draft day too.. I'm pretty sure I have alexander firmly planted at 3 though.. at least in the leagues I play in which count ppr

Larry for me, he has the best O-line in football, and last year was nearly unstoppable. LT dies out every year in playoff time, but can get you there by his early season dominance. The loss of Hutch to SA is a big one and makes him my #2 and LT #3

LT, he dominated with a crappy Brees and I find that there are questions with the other two. Alexander has lost Hutch and LJ hasn't played a full season and lost Vermeil and Saunders.

LT is mad consistent and you know he will be good.
