Difference in WR's

Postby ChiSoxFan95 » Tue Jul 31, 2007 6:34 pm

Is there a big difference between WR's in the late 3rd round like TJ, Javon Walker etc and early 4th round WR's like Andre Johnson, Donald Driver (assuming he's off of the PUP list and healthy).

I'm on a 12 team yaho league with TD's are 6 and starts 3 Rb's and a flex. What I think is that there's not much of a diff between the two types. I take my 2 Rb's in the 1st and 2nd. There's not usually any tempting RB's around late 3rd so I usually go WR because I know I could probably get them later in round 4. But then when I get my pick again the early 4th there are a lot of tempting WR's to take but I'm missing of the point of locking up my 3 stud RB's. The RB's that are usually availble for me in early 4 are Deuce, Lynch, and Caddy etc... I could go Barber but he's a bit of a reach at this point in the draft.

So my question is after my 2 RB's would you go WR-RB or Rb-WR with my vague tiers of players. lol
Thank you for anyone who responds.

Lynch just jumps out at me on your list, I think he is a significant player. I usually try to get one solid WR and then I go RB nuts. Since you start 3 RBs, I wouldn't think twice about grabbing someone like Lynch.

There really isn't a huge difference between the wide receivers in the late 3rd and early 4th, so I would definitely go with the RB-WR strategy. All those running backs you listed shouldn't be available in the early 4th, and Barber actually isn't a reach at that point in the draft. You can still get a decent #1 receiver in the early 4th, and your running back depth will be incredible.
