I voted for tiki. Its so funny to see portis rebound to the 4th spot. I had the 3rd pick in one of my drafts last year and the 2nd pick in another and got portis late in the 2nd round in both drafts last year.

Don't get me wrong, Portis is great but I give a slight edge to tiki.

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see Portis end up outscoring one of the so-called "Big 3" by the time it's all said and done.


i would be. i think the big 3 outscore portis/tiki/sjax by a considerable margin.


I think one of the "Big 3" is going to lay an egg this year. (relatively speaking) I'm not sure which one, or why, but I just can't shake the feeling that it's gonna happen.

You're certainly not the only one high on Mr. Brown this year WP, but until he shows he can shoulder the load I'm not drinking the Kool-Aid.

True, but most fantasy football titles are won by those who are ahead of the curve -- waiting for elite play means that everyone else will be onto him, too. What are the odds that he'll still be around in the second round at that pick (No. 17 in 10-team leagues, No. 21 in 12-teamers).

While I certainly agree with your point, reaching for him all the way at #4 sort of defeats that point, does it not? Even if he does explode for 1700/15 you're still only getting equal value to where you picked him and the floor is much much lower. The point you're making lies in getting a 20+ TD guy at #4 or getting a 1700/15 guy closer to the end of the 1st round.

I agree. I meant the thread more as...if you have the 4th pick, who are you taking.

That said, Ronnie will likely be a great value pick. He might post #4 RB numbers, but you can get him significantly later than that spot. ;-D

I chose Portis because the skins have a great line, he finished the year with 5 straight 100yd games and 6 TDs in the span, the additions of Lloyd and Randle El should help the run, and Al Saunders comes aboard, plus he finishes the year with 4 teams who were 21st or worse against the run last year.
