I would take either a premier back,or a stud QB.Premier backs that would still be left are Holmes,Tomlinson,and A-Train.Stud QB's that will still be left are Cullpepper,Garcia,and Peyton.If you take a RB first round,grab a QB second round and come back and get ur second RB in the 3rd.If you take a QB then take two RB's one after another in 2nd and 3rd rounds.

When going to the draft pool, draft from the shallow end first. RBs are swallowed up the earliest. Try to draft an RB too late and you are splashing around in the mud. QBs aren't in as limited supply but the talent dropoff is still big.

If scoring is the only criteria, a guy like Bettis will outrank many of the RBs listed ahead of him on regular fantasy cheat sheets. Dillon would be a natural 1st round pick in your position. Then I would say you could grab a QB and/or WR, then swing back to RB in time to snag Bettis.

In the later rounds, just look for guys from high power, explosive offenses, especially those with easy schedules.

if its a TD only scoring league than id go one of two ways RB or WR

best TD RBs left are A-train then tomlinson id get atrain because his big and strong and will always be used in their goal line situations

WR are good too id grab owens then moss or harrison

if i were u id take a-train

You'll be surprised who some guys take. I had 7th pick in my draft and I ended up with Ahman Green.

But assuming the following are taken:

M. Faulk
A. Green
S. Alexander
K. Warner

I want to tell you RB here because you can't win without two solid RB in your lineup but at this point you are at good RB's not great. So I think you have to good with a great QB in Jeff Garcia. I am not a believer in Priest Holmes. Corey Dillon or Curtis Martin would be justified here but like I said they are good not great RB's. And Curtis just signed an extensionand you know what happens when players are given the money. POOR PERFORMANCE!!

My vote is JEFF GARCIA! ;-D
