I have the 1:3 & 1:5 picks in the rookie draft. 20 man roster pretty standard scoring PPR I have 7 picks overall in the 5 round draft rookies & F.A. I am assuming Moreno and Wells will be gone by the time I pick. Do I go Don Brown, Le mccoy or shonn Green with my first pick and hoping Crabtree lands to me at 5. Any suggestions? Much apprecitated My roster:
QB Philip Rivers Aaron Rodgers Tyler Thigpen
RB Ronnie Brown Steven Jackson Clinton Portis Ricky Williams wr Bernard Berrian Laveranues Coles Lee Evans Calvin Johnson Sidney Rice Eddie Royal te Chris Cooley
I'd actually take Crabtree with the #3 in your situation. It's a PPR league, and you need a little more help at WR than you do at RB. Plus, I don't think there's a clear #3 RB in this draft, you could make the argument for Brown, Greene, or McCoy there. I'd go Crabtree at #3 and you'll have your choice out of 2 of those guys at #5.
Crabtree will not drop to you at 5 in a PPR. So it's all a question if you want him. I think you are pretty set at WR - Calvin, then another great young guy in Royal (esp after Marshall skips town), then two solid guys in Berrian and Evans, plus old man Lav, and fingers still crossed Sid.
Your RB are solid. But they are not young. PPR actually makes Brown a big jump up over Greene. And he is much more of a sure thing than LeSean.
I think the power move is to get Crabtree. If you think he is the next sure stud WR in the line of Larry and Calvin, I wouldn't pass him up. If that's your thinking, you will always be able to trade him for the next big thing at RB.
If you want to make your team better near term, I would get Brown. I really like him and he landed in a plum position. There are worse things than ending up with both Brown and one of LSMC or Greene.

I think the third pick is the easiest pick in rookie drafts. Take whoever is left from Wells, Moreno and Crabtree. Hopefully, Donald Brown will fall to you at 5. If not, L. McCoy is a great consilation prize.

What are your opinions of this trade: Keep in mind that this team is one of the worst if not the worst in the league, so his 2010 pick could be the very first in the draft
I gave up Year 2009 Draft Pick 1.05 Year 2009 Draft Pick 4.07 Year 2010 Round 2 Draft Pick FOR
I get Year 2009 Draft Pick 2.01 Year 2009 Draft Pick 3.06 Year 2010 Round 1 Draft Pick with the 2:01 pick I took: Juaquin Iglesias, CHI WR
I personally would have tried to drop down to 1:7 or so to grab one of the 2nd tier WR's but Juaquin is also a decent prospect. I don't think you gained all that much on the trade. This trade favors you if the guy you traded sucks. If his team ends up being good and you end up with a late first rounder out of the deal then you will be losing the deal in my opinion.
2009 1st rounder (1:5) to get a 2010 first rounder (?) 40% - 50% of losing on this 2010 2nd rounder to get the 2009 2nd rounder (2:1) You can't lose on this but only break about even if you finish last which I highly doubt. 2009 (4:07) to get the 2009 (3:06) You win this deal.
In a Dynasty the now is almost always better than the later. You appear to have a team that could win it. If I am in that situation I typically go for the juggler and do what it takes to get the title. Thats the ultimate goal. IF you keep pushing picks out a year that lessens your chance to win it now but might improve your team enough to get you over the top when you would have failed now.

I see what you are saying! My thought process was this: >I needed wr help first and foremost and with crabtree gone, I would take the next best rb.
> I had seen iglesias play and the guy catches everything. He is tough,good hands and concentration, comes back to the ball and goes over the middle smartly. Perfect for J Culter.

>I also picked up the 6th pick in our third round. Our drafts third round starts in late august when training camps are in full swing and you can see who has made the jump to the next level. I now have the 2nd,4th,5th and 6th pick in the third round. Ed royal,desean jackson and tim hightower,steve slaton were plucked from the 3rd round last year. Thanks
First of all, you did the right thing grabbing Wells at 1.3.
I also like your trade, if in fact the guy has the worst squad in the league. While I agree on the "win now" aspect, a shrewd owner always keeps one eye to the future as well. From a pick standpoint, and even more so from a trade standpoint, that 1.1 or 1.2 is a nice prize to hold.
Iglesias at 2.1 is a solid pick. And with your multitude of 3rd round picks, even a modest hit rate of 25% gets you a nice gem. I like how your league holds the 3rd round in August -- that is certainly to your benefit as you have a lot more time to evaluate the prospects.
