Of course, I took Maroney in the first round last year...so I am likely more bull-headed than intelligent. I'm sure the rest of you are right. :-b


Last year I took him at 15 (3rd in the second round) in a new Dynasty. I figure he hasnt moved much from there. Hes somewhere in the 10-15 range of RBs, better then guys like White or Jacobs and not as good as McGahee, Portis, MB3.

Im guessing hes gonna go right around the turn in most re-draft leagues.

Unless you expect Taylor to get hurt (and that's one's prerogative to do so), there's really no reason to take MJD where he's going. Taylor's going to be the workhorse and MJD is going to be the home run hitter. His monster games and his bad ones are land mines. You never really know when they are coming. Against crappy run D's like ATL, Den, and NO he put up duds.

He had 3 noteworthy games last year really, Hou, @Ten, and Oak. He scored 157 fantasy points in traditional scoring systems, 66 of those (or 42%) were in those 3 games. The remaining games he averaged about 7 1/2 points per game. No thanks.

Would anyone pick MJD ahead of Ryan Grant (assuming he signs of course)?

Assuming that Grant signs, and does not have competition from Jackson (not likely, but you never know), you have to take Grant ahead of MJD. His number of touches will be mcuh higher, and that gives him more opportunity to produce fantasy points!
