Who is the #9 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts?

Postby The Lung » Wed May 14, 2008 8:35 pm

Who is the #9 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. and that the league settings make each position roughly of equal value (e.g. no two QB leagues or those designed to greatly favor QBs...)

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)

Previous consensus votes:

#1: RB Darren McFadden, Oakland Raiders
#2: RB Rashard Mendenhall, Pittsburgh Steelers
#3: RB Jonathan Stewart, Carolina Panthers
#4: RB Felix Jones, Dallas Cowboys
#5: RB Matt Forte, Chicago Bears
#6: RB Kevin Smith, Detroit Lions
#7: RB Chris Johnson, Tennessee Titans
#8: QB Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons

(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)

Ray Rice gets my vote. I think he has the most talent of the bunch.

Same as last round -- Jamaal Charles. He is the most talented back left and is a great position going forward. Obviously LJ will get the carries this year, but I think you will see Charles start to steal touches more and more. The O-Line will be improved and they like to run the ball.

Going with Rice again in this one. I would be thrilled to get him at #9.

Ray Rice is the steal of the draft at #9.

This is like going back in time 3 years and deciding between Frank Gore, Mark Clayton, Eric Shelton. Alex Smith just went #8 in the previous poll.

Funny, that year I had pick 10 and took Gore and Shelton at the turn. I was happier about getting Shelton :-°
So they weren't the best...and may have ended the worst. SO WHAT!
