In a PPR league vs Non-PPR, using last year's numbers the 11-13 RBs were
CJ4.24-237 pts in PPR, 194 non-PPR
Portis-235 pts PPR, 207 non-PPR
Slaton-262 pts PPR, 216 non-PPR
At the 12 spot the top 4 WR last year were:
Fitz-312 pts PPR, 216 non-PPR
AJ-325 pts PPR, 210 non-PPR
Moss-224 pts PPR, 155 non-PPR
Megatron-277pts PPR, 199 non-PPR
Seems to me that PPR gives WRs a decided scoring advantage over RBs. I think your top picks have to do one thing-produce the most points for you. The guys you take in 3-4 may give a similar value (WR/WR, then RB/RB or RB/WR, WR/RB) but the risk is greater that a RB taken around the turn in the 1-2 round will have a fall-off in production than will the elite WRs, and that a WR you take in round 3-4 will have a less of a chance to produce close to expected numbers than a RB taken then. So I think it's saver to go WR at the turn.
