When to grab the later RBs...?

Postby intense » Sat Jul 29, 2006 10:11 pm

In a standard points league, if you already own 2 solid backs, would you take a guy like Willie Parker/Warrick Dunn/Chester Taylor over a low 2nd tier wideout like Javon Walker or Driver?

this isnt a PPR league or keeper.

depends: what is the round, what is your whole team?

i would say that all of the running backs you listed are more valuable than any of the receivers listed.

Thats what I was wondering, what round do you grab guys like Willie and Dunn if you already have your solid RB/RB/WR... do you grab one 4th, or do you grab one of the driver or walker WRs then and one of them the next round if they slide.

If there's a flex I'll def take the RB...if not I may debate the WR more, but still probably take the RB...Walker/Driver is like a low 4th/5th round all three of those RB's are late 2nd at the highest to early 4th at the latest picks

When in doubt, always grab a running back. Especially, either one of these as your third rb. You're protecting yourself from injury and taking a #2 rb away from your opponents. A WR will be available in rounds 4 and5.

id go with the running back; youll be able to get good wide receivers in the next few rounds, and the running backs you listed are absolute steals.

Personally, I'd take Willie P, I think he is being undervalued in most drafts. JMO

If you have already taken 2 RBs and there is a flex position that allows you to take another back then I'd probably look to take Taylor, WR, Tatum Bell in the next 3 picks rather than Parker or Dunn. Taylor and Bell have far more upside, while Parker and Dunn are "safer". For anything after your top 2 RBs you want upside guys, not safe guys.

If not then I'm probably going WR in the 4th (unless Gates is there for some reason).
