I guess I'm with Biju on this one. ADP was taken first in our Rookie Draft so that is moot. However there were too many question marks swirling around to justify taking an RBBC rookie RB on t team with no QB or WR's within the first 5,6, or even 7 rounds before your starting RB's and WR's.

I don't feel bad about not drafting him, there simply was no way to see this coming for sure even with a decent pre-season campaign.

I had the 11th pick in a two man keeper league and took him with my number one pick. I got some much crap for that pick.

I took Maroney :-t and Steve Smith ;-D .

But here is the funny one...it is kind of complicated, so I won't go into detail. Owner A drafted Ahman Green - Owner B had the option to forfeit his next pick to keep Green. He waived that option, so Owner A got Green much to his dismay. Owner B used his pick on AP. So, essentially Owner A tried to force the hand of Owner B and badly misjudged it...we're still laughing about that and rubbing it in every week.

Oh yeah...Owner A is also the Commish. LOL
