It's the reason you brought up this thread in the first place, because you were thinking about shaun at 3. And you should go with it. If you don't pick shaun here you'll be kicking yourself when he has a big year. Otherwise you should try and trade the pick. Gore is the safe pick, but I don't like him at no. 3 and I definitely don't like Joe Addai there.
That said, that's what I'd do.
FF is about having fun and it's more fun when you're playing your favorite players. i won my main league in '05 and having SA made it all the better.
On a practical note, SA could
be back to all-pro status on a team that knows their window to the Superbowl is closing quickly. They've had a year to recover from the Hutch loss, have great offensive weapons, and a decent D.
Gore = broken hand and unlikely to repeat '06 numbers.
LJ = lots and lots of issues.
Addai = the offence is Manning Manning Harrison Wayne... period.
Westy = well, you don't want him over Shaun.
But. If you don't take SA, I'd roll with LJ. And maybe, just maybe; #2 takes LJ and then SJ is the obvious choice.
