I am ecstatic with the team I just drafted, it seemed like every other round the players I wanted fell to me. Anyway here's my roster (10th pick):
QB: Donovan McNabb RB: LaDanian Tomlinson (super excited to get him, had him #3 overall on my rankings) RB: Larry Johnson Flex(RB/WR): Joseph Addai WR: Andre Johnson WR: Roddy White TE: Zach Miller K: Nate Kaeding DST: Green Bay Packers
Bench QB: Carson Palmer RB: Donald Brown RB: Jerious Norwood WR: Antonio Bryant WR: Lance Moore
If this was 2005 or 2006 you would of had a good team. But in 2009 you got a bunch of seniors on your roster. LT, LJ, Addai arent 1st tier talent anymore. McNabb sucks, Palmer is iffy & is on a bad team. Andre Johnson will be your top point getter.
LT at #3?! man you gotta find a better source of scouts. LT was around 12 on my list. Turner, MJD, Slaton, Forte, Johnson will all have better seasons than LT in my opinion. Remember Shawn Alexander? 30 is a bitch. Im also staying away from Westbrook.

I know that most would disagree about LT being #3 but let me explain my reasoning: LT is coming off his WORST season (in which he was injured), but his stats aren't that bad: 1536 Total Yards and 12 TD's. He is now injury-free, and he is now eager to prove that he is not washed up. Yes he is 30, but the other top running backs have questions of their own.
Michael Turner performed brilliantly in his first season as the feature back, but the Falcons have said they want to reduce his carries this year, and with the addition of Tony Gonzalez his red zone TD's are bound to drop a bit. Matt Forte had a solid rookie campain, but you have to think the Bears will throw more with the addition of Cutler. Maurice Jones-Drew is expected to have a huge season because he will be the feature back, but he has never proven that he can be a succesfull feature back. Steven Jackson is injury-prone, making him a risky choice as your top pick. Deangelo Williams had a huge year, but you have to think that it is unlikely that he will repeat his TD numbers from last season. Additionally, he has to contend with Jonathon Stewart taking some of his carries. Chris Johnson is an amazing player, but LenDale White will seriously limit his TD production. Although it may seem unorthodox to have LT ranked as I high as I do, but my "scouts" find it justifable to take him there. By the way, I drafted him #10 which doesn't seem like a bad spot even if you're not too high on LT.
Thank for your input though, I am not a fan of McNabb either but as the 9th QB taken I think he was a good value.
Well I am not sure I would have gone LT @#3 but to each his own. I think he is going to have a good year but if this is a PPR I think I might have gone Forte or MJD if they were there. LT can catch a lot of balls too.
I personally like your QB's. I think that Palmer could be a steal in most leagues. Your WR's are tight and you wrapped up the INDY RB.
I'm buying into LT's resurgence this year so I don't think that was too big a reach. If you like a guy and it's not a huge reach then I say go for it. That said I don't think LJ will have a great year. But with Addai and Brown you should have decent depth.
Love Palmer and I think 85 is a good backup a well. If one or both take off you could sell high for another good RB.
Thanks for you help. Good luck!
Passing TDs = 4 All other TDs = 6 100 yd rushing bonus = 4 PPR All other basic scoring
Your team is decent. You will have a flex no matter what between Addai and Brown, which I like, and I think your WRs are very good. At QB you have the possibility of a very good platoon, which isn't exactly a bad thing. Unless ravaged by injuries, this is a playoff team IMHO.
