Kind of contradictory :-? People had passed on LT when he was a beast ;-7 Your statement against him makes no sense. Can someone tell me when KC had the best Offensive line last year all of the sudden?


No, I just wrote it pretty fast and my reasoning is a bit ambiguous. Last year he had only a slightly better oline, but this year he is coming off that 400+ carry year. I've seen the data and read countless articles about the effects it has on a RB. Look at the past to predict the future young grasshopper. ;-D

Great sample size, a whole 4 guys ;D And I could say the same thing about looking at the past and predicting the future with the numbers that LJ could put up ;) That argument doesn't hold that much water...

I am in the same boat with my # 3 pick.

My league is PPR w/ 2QBs (6 points per TD pass) and 3RBs though. Real tough to draft.


I personally am terrified of LJ and SA, and with the 3 pick, I have to nail this thing to get it right.

I am split between Addai, Gore, FWP, and Peyton Manning.

What do I do?
QB - Manning, Ben Roth, Campbell
RB - Henry, T Jones, D Ward, B-Jax, Betts, B Jacobs, Selvin Young
WR - Lee Evans, Colston, Driver, Cotchery, Brandon Marshall
TE - Heap
K - Elam
DEF - Chicago

Honestly with 6 point TD, and starting two WR. I would be really leaning toward going Manning there.

Its 3WR also.

PPR
2QB, 3RB, 3WR, TE, DEF, K.

Still think Manning is the pick?

Keep in mind I wont be able to get my RB until the 18th pick. That is a scary thought.

LJ is so underrated it's ridiculous. The guy is going to outscore Steven Jackson this year. The guy is an elite talent second only to Ladanian Tomlinson. He runs like a man among boys.

Ken, it's not worth it, you can't change the minds of people set in a rut of stats and "history" !+)

i agree...but i still drafted Jackson ahead of him in 2 leagues (1 was a keeper). i think they'll be really close stat wise but at the time i drafted (early August) i just didnt want to take the risk with LJ

Its not so much that I am set on the whole 400 carry thing. I think Bennett will help to make that load more manageable, and LJs health will be fine.

But that O-line has Brian Waters and little else at this point. Its not the great line it once was, and if they try to break in Brode Croyle then things could become very difficult. I think the yards will be there, but I dont know about the TDs.

Plus Im in a PPR league where Addai could potentially be huge (70 catches is a possibility for him this year). But I am worried about him getting banged up. I just have to hope that SJ falls to me I guess.
