Who is the #5 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)
My choice is Chris Johnson. I think he can become a versatile threat for the Titans and should get plenty of touches in both the running and passing game. The Titans have a good O-Line and they should be creative in how they get him the football.
I like Kevin Smith here. Not only will he have the most immediate value out of almost any of the rookies because of the lack of competition, Detroits zone blocking 1 cut system is the exact same system he used at UCF so he will have an easy time adjusting. He has proven he can be the guy and carry the ball 30 times a game and while he played against somewhat weak competition, he did play well against some big schools when UCF played them. All the other guys left here besides Forte are probably going to be RBBC for quite a while. I don't think Chris Johnson will ever be a RB who gets more then 15 carries a game.
I personally like Forte the best out of this bunch but my vote is for Chris Johnson. I think the Bears have some O-line issues heading into this season again and so do the Lions. Johnson will be a perfect match with White in the Titans offense. I think he's going to get plenty of touches both in the rushing and receiving games.
I went Forte as well. He is clearly in the lead to be the starter in Chicago now with Benson's arrest. I think Johnson is talented, but I don't see him getting many TDs with LenWhale there.
14 Teams, each keep 14 players QB: P. Manning, Schaub RB: MJD, Westy, C. Johnson, A. Bradshaw, J. Ringer WR: TO, Driver, J. Gage, Crabtree, J. Morgan, K. Curtis, E. Bennett, M. Sims-Walker TE: Witten, M. Lewis K: Gostkowski, J. Brown D/ST: Tenn, NE
I think at this point it starts to turn into personal needs. If you are sitting at 5 or after, you start to look at your roster and take the top RB/WR/QB, depending on your depth. I know this is stated in the rules, so I will still play along and go with CJ3
