I'm with ya. I went with Ryan in this one. I just feel like we've already gone through 6-7 RBs, and at some point, you are just taking guys and hoping that they pan out instead of taking guys because you think they will be good RBs. I know all the arguments as to why RBs should be taken before QBs, WRs, etc, but I think once you take the top 5-7 rookie RBs off the board, you should evaluate guys on an equal footing regardless of position. I also think that evaluation should be based on who has the best chance to succeed in the NFL and become a regular starter. Matt Ryan will almost certainly get a great opportunity to start. Maybe not to put up great stats, but definitely to start. A lot of these RBs won't even get the opportunity to be the top backup, much less start. At some point the fact that Ryan is going into a situation where the team will bend over backwards to make him successful makes him more valuable than the RBs that are left. Is this that point? Maybe? Who can really be sure about anything right now?
Maybe my opinion will change after the draft and I would go with one of the RBs, but one of them would really need to fall into the right situation for that to happen. I know situation isn't everything in dynasty FF, but I think it shouldn't be ignored completely, and when you get to this point, it seems like the talent levels are all pretty much equal. Every guy left has some sort of flaw that you can pick on.
