Oh noes. I'm not in the know. I used his actual initials instead of some dumb nickname given to him as a child. The horror.

Well guys, I've got a draft in a few hours and I was seriously considering taking McFadden with my first pick (which is the third round after keepers). So he'd be the 28th overall selection. I know it's a reach, but he won't be there most likely on the back end of it. The reason I like him this year is because Oakland is terrible.. The ownership is going to need to showcase their new stud to keep fans in the seats. At the end of the day after a 4-8 start to the season, Justin Fargas isn't going to keep fans in the seats, but Darren McFadden may. I don't know, tough decisions. I want an RB, top choices are...

Barber (will be taken)
MJD
Jamal Lewis
Reggie Bush
Brandon Jacobs
Laurence Maroney
Michael Turner
Darren McFadden

Thoughts?

What about a keeper league? My league can keep two players, but I didn't keep any because Favre was my QB and we had to select our keepers in July. My other keeper options were Rudi Johnson and Boldin, but I decided to start fresh this season, I finished fifth in a 16 team league.

My league is a very active and competitive keeper league, but I have no idea what would be the appropriate time to take McFadden. He's got the talent to be very special, but he'll most likely split carries this season.

I was bored the other day so I decided to sign up for some yahoo public league w/ a live draft.

McFadden got drafted with the 3rd pick of the FIRST round!!! For the record, Tom Brady was taken with the 1st overall pick.

AP didn't really start the craze on getting RunDMC early...many people like taking rookie RB's because they want to get the next Barry Sanders/Marshall Faulk/Priest Holmes/insert awesome runner. Heck, a couple years ago we were having the same issues/questions with Reggie Bush. Actually, I would rather take a chance with RunDMC over L.Maroney (who's going to share MORE balls than DMC), J.Lewis (tough Schedule, doesn't catch balls) or Lendale White (big ?). I picked up RunDMC in the 4th round (mid) in my draft this year.
