most likely tiki and sjax will have similar years
with portis lagging that, a little or a lot

BUT i think sjax has the POTENTIAL to breakout, tiki not so much

peace,
richard

ps - i think BOTH with be top 10 rbs, portis, who knows


Don't you mean Duckett?


right, right duckett - duh, you know what i mean - obviously i've got trades on my mind LOL :-)

peace,

If Tiki falls to you at #5, pick him and be happy. If #4 takes Tiki then you can take Jackson. Win-win situation.

I agree. Can we see the first couple rounds, because that's ridiculous.

Also, I think that lately there has been the perfect storm for sjax.

Duckett came to Washington and Portis got injured, Edge is now in Arizona, and Brandon Jacobs is only getting better and closer to his prime, while Tiki is getting older and further from his prime.

Tiki has been dropping, I am not sure why all of a sudden, I think either one are good picks at number 4 still.

Wow, the concensus here seems to be sjax at 4. I still have Barber rated 4 and Jackson 5

I like Jackson at #4, and have for a while. It was a rare person who agreed with me just a couple weeks ago.

Nice to see you have all seen the light.

BUT, S Jackson is dealing with achilles tendinitis and the Rams apparently are offerring a contract to Stephen Davis.

I'd still take him #4, but it's less clear cut for me now.

The main concern I have with Steven Jackson is his injury status. It's not that he's a Foster or Chris Perry type always getting hurt, but just that he seems to get nicked up a lot. He's had several "minor" knee injuries over the course of a less than 2 full seasons, including offseason cleanup surgery. And I get the impression that he might not be the best option as a #1 RB if he is constantly playing at 80-90%. St. Louis' turf, even the new stuff, is not kind to RBs and that doesn't help matters.

The upside is tremendous with his talent and situation, but the health issues are troublesome.

I drafted Steven Jackson in my main money league at #7, although in hindsight, I wish I would have taken Steve Smith.

My other starting RBs are Jamal, Dillon, and M.Bell drafted in rounds 3,4, and 6.
