With Rivers starting the chargers will lean on him more than they did with Brees establishing himself as a very good QB in the past few years. I think Rivers will dump off many passes to him, and LT could have his best year ever.


You can make that argument either way:

Inexperienced QB = Stack the Box = Horrible Year!
Inexperienced QB = Lean on him More = Awesome Year!

I just know the LT was very mediocre at the end of last season while LJ and SA poured on the points. Add in the uncertainty of a new QB and I think he's the riskiest pick of the three.

I voted LT2, it is still early and my mind could change but right now that is who I would take. With that said, I don't think you can go wrong with any of them and that is why I would go for the 3rd pick and get the one thats left ;-D Then it not your fault if he fails :-b

wow, 4 votes? No love for the reigning rushing champ and TD record holder!



EDIT: And with that said, I went with LJ. The potential is just way to high to pass over.

LJ had more carries then 95% of the RBs in the league. (In LESS games) I'm not worried about him carrying the load.

If I had the first pick I'd probably draw out of a hat. All three of these guys have the chance to be the top RB next year it's just going to be luck on who will be the best RB. Besides KC and San Diego have a bye in Week 3 which SUX. LT and LJ could start to ware out after 10 stright weeks leading up to a fantasy superbowl. They probably wont but they could

That's a good point. Anyways, I have the 3rd pick, so I'll be glad to get any of those guys. But I am hoping it's LJ that drops to me. ;-D

You can't go wrong with any of them, but for me LJ has biggest upside.

I like LT. His situation now is similar to the years when he put up his best numbers, and now hes a smarter RB, in better shape, not to mention theres a passing option they other team has to watch now, rather than none when he had those amazing years before.

#1 is such a tough position this year with the desisions you have to make there. I went with SA, only because Neil Rackers wasn't an option.
