What are the pros and cons of attempting to draft the RB, WR and QB of the same team? I can see where you'd have to go to the bench in the bye week. But it seems like most of the team's scoring would equal FF points. Has anyone tried this approach?

Thanks for your advice.

If you have an elite offensive team such as Indy, Cincy, San Diego, or St. Louis, that would be a great strategy. All of those teams have a player in the top 10 at their respcetive positions. The difficult part is actually pulling it off. Depending on the format and # of teams, it's unlikely to get three Colts in the first three rounds. Manning and Addai are going in the first round of most drafts. You have a shot with Cincy. Though you'd probably be looking at Rudi Johnson, Palmer, and Housh (not bad, though). San Diego is another shot, but with a small twist. Gates is clearly the #1 TE and can be had in the fourth round. You just need to be lucky enough to get the #1 overall pick for LT. Rivers is a solid QB, but he's well below the top tier, so the fifth or sixth round should get you him. St. Louis, whom I love dearly, could also get you the trifecta. Jackson and Holt in the first two rounds is doable, with Bulger in the 4th. You have a shot, but you need alot of luck and no one to snipe any of your players.
