I have a dynasty rookie draft. I have the 7th, 9th and 18th picks.
We start 1 QB, 2 Rb, 2 WR, 1 FLEX (WR,RB,TE) 1 TE, 1 K, 1 D
QB Scoring- 6pt all TD, 1 pt for 250 yards pass, 2 pt for 275, 3 pt for 300 and 1 pt for every 50 yards over 300
RB/WR/TE Scoring- 6 pt all TD, 1 pt every 25 yards rush/rec, NO PPR
My current roster: 10 man dynasty league QB- Romo, M. Ryan, S. Hill, Rosenfels
RB- M. Lynch, R. Bush , Mendenhall, Betts, Chester Taylor, Fred Jackson, Clifton Smith
WR- Calvin Johnson, Roddy White S. Moss, S. Rice, J. Morgan, A. Miles
TE- G. Olsen
I am pretty sure the top 6 will go like this: Moreno Crabtree Wells McCoy D. Brown S. Green
At 7, I am pretty sure I would take Maclin. #9 is where is gets tricky. I should have my choice between Stafford, Sanchez, Harvin, Nicks or any RB that wasnt listed. QB's are a premium in this league, so drafting one for future trade bait is not a bad idea. What direction should I go?
BTW, I have 3 first round picks next year and 2 of them are from bad teams. So, I very well could have two top 3 picks next year. I am wondering if I should try to move some of those picks next year to get into the top 3 this year?
IMO, you have young RBs but I don't know how many are gonna turn into yearly studs, so id go with the best rb available left unless of course both greene and mccoy are gone (assuming obviously wells, moreno, and brown all picked).
Than at 9, i think you hope Harvin is still on the board. If not go with the best available wr. I know your thinkin abouut pickin and trading a QB, but I dont know if youre goin to see much interest in either of them. After crab, i would rank them... 1. Harvin 2. Maclin 3. DHB 4. Britt 5. Nicks
I'd give Andre Brown some serious consideration at that 9 spot, he's the future replacement for Jacobs and he's bound to miss some time this year, he'll leapfrog Bradshaw in the event of an injury, and he'll be surrounded by some good weapons on that team...He should rack up alot of TD's so being no ppr that should be a consideration.
Going QB is an option but they could also be a bust, so it depends on who you like the most out of the group, Sanchez has a great supporting cast and the highest floor so you could probably get something for him in a year...You can get a very good WR at 18 so I wouldn't be in a rush to grab one at 9.
Personally I really like Brown and think he'll be a stud, I also like Jennings even tho he's in Jax, but I think it would be smart to add a RB if your going Maclin earlier, and definately keep those 1st next year esp if they are from bad teams...It seems like a looong time away, but it'll be worth it when it gets here.
Another option(something I'm pondering with the 9th pick in my dynasty draft as well), is seeing if you can move that 9th pick for another 2010 1st if that team is bad and you know for sure it will be a top 4 pick...Next year will have more star power especially at the top, so I'm never in a rush to add all my players in one year if I think I can get better value next year, I'd gladly move the 9th pick if I felt I could get a top 3 pick in 2010, no questions asked.

I think the rookie WRs are overvalued, especially in no PPR, so stockpiling a QB is not such a bad idea. Draft on value not need, works in NFL, works in fantasy.
Have you considered trading the pick for a vet RB? A guy has been trying to get LT from me for 1.9 in one league. If there is a QB or WR-starved owner, that 1.9 might be pretty tempting.
Even if you can't get a older elite guy like LT or Westy, you might still consider a guy like DWard or Ryan Grant. Or Ronnie Brown. These are not the most exciting players but they could give you a punchers chance until you can cash in your earlier picks next year for an elite RB prospect.
