Who is the #3 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts?

Postby The Lung » Thu May 01, 2008 10:27 am

Since Mendenhall probably has a lead in the #2 that shouldn't be eclipsed, we'll move on to the next one.

Who is the #3 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts this year? You are voting on who will have the best fantasy football production in the NFL over the next 5 or 6 years with the team on which the player was just drafted, NOT who will have the best year in 2008. Also please assume that you have a balanced roster and don't have a great specific need for a QB, WR, etc.

Feel free to discuss the pros and cons of these players - this could be helpful for some and generate some good discussion. The discussion of these players and their situations is most important part of these polls. If you vote "other" please discuss the player after you vote. (And I'll add him to the next poll if he doesn't win as a write-in)

#1: RB Darren McFadden, Oakland Raiders
#2: RB Rashard Mendenhall, Pittsburgh Steelers

(Also, for comparison sake, Cafe members voted on the top 12 rookie dynasty picks back in February and March, the results of which can be viewed here)

It's got to be Stewart. Last of the big 3 RBs left and is the most talented runner left. After this is when it should get a bit more interesting.

Sexy pick = Jonathan Stewart.

Better pick = Matt Forte.

Care to explain your reasoning here? Not a challenge, I'm just genuinely interested in why you think Forte would be the better choice...

Stewart by a mile. Better runner, situation is nearly as good if not better. This one's not even a close call. ;-D

Mikus Forte, brother of Matt... duh...

but seriously... this is dynasty discussion, not redraft... and even in redraft I'm hesitant to give the torch to forte over stewart

in dynasty, not even in the ballpark IMO

I'm sure Mikus has some good reasoning, he usually does :)

Forte is going to get some hype due to his situation. Benson and Wolfe are the only people he will be competing with for carries which leads to the assumption that he will be the lead back, which is very likely. But Chicago still has a dearth of offensive weapons and an older offensive line that showed its age last year, which now will be employing a rookie at left tackle. Forte looks like a solid bet for a good deal of carries, but I feel he is getting hyped due to that, much like Brandon Jackson did last year.

No way I am taking him over a more talented runner like Stewart who ended up in a better offense, be it dynasty or re-draft.

Dang, I have been undercut. Now you guys expect good reasoning.

I like Forte's situation, honestly, and I think he has the unknown-guy-out-of-nowhere thing going for him. I know he is the type of guy who will work his butt off to be the best he can be, because I grew up down the street from him. OK, so that makes me a little biased toward the guy, which is not a bad thing for you guys to know because I do not have a dynasty league with any of y'all. :-b

I am not entirely opposed to Jonathan Stewart anymore because I have heard a lot of good things about him. I think he will be a fine back and probably the right call here at No. 3, which is why I voted for him and not Forte here.
