Alright, I know everybody has their own opinion on who the no. 1 WR is this year, but at which round would you take him? If I draft 5th or earlier I'm going with a RB, no question, but what about 6th? Would anybody pick one up in the first 5?...I just notice when I'm doing mocks that when I go RB in the later rounds I usually end up with a good RB and a great WR, but my no. 2s are always hurting in both positions. What about going with a Fitz/Moss type tandem and settle for an average running core? I'd love to hear the opinion of some more experienced people....
You can go into drafts with an idea of what you want to do, but i wouldn't make a set plan on RB/RB or RB/WR etc. I picked 7th in a 10 man and was thinking WR first, but somehow MJD fell to me and i couldn't pass on that. I can't say going Fitz/Moss 1/2 is bad, but the drop off of RBs might be by the time you pick one. Messing around with mock drafts is really the best way to go

I feel you on that...I will definitely go with one of my top 5 RBs if they're available. But if they're not, would you do a Gore type RB or go WR?...Thanks, I really appreciate it.
This question also depends on the league settings!
Is it a PPR league, is there bonuses, what players are out there when it's your turn that will give you the most points possible in your league.
Let's say that all the top RB's that are PPR generated (and your in a PPR league) are gone when it get's to you. Then depending on who the RB is (personally I think Gore is going to be great this year and is great for PPR) then I would take them, but like the other guy said....if it's say Pierre then I would take Fitz/Moss combo or something like that. If it's PPR also then the WR will get more receptions usually so....
The way you should look at it is you could have a great RB and a great WR but no real secondary's or you could have 2 top WR's and nice middle pick RB's (personally I would love to have Fitz/Moss paired with a Grant/K.Smith type rather than to have Gore/Moss paired with a K.Smith/A.Gonzalez pick or something like that)
I also read somewhere that WR's are really a main focal point this year so alot of drafts (even happened in my league)....everyone picked up the usual RB's and the guy with the 7th pick grabbed AJ/Fitz and then got K.Smith on the turn. The rest of his team isn't that good ( he has Moreno as a RB2) but that is because we deal with IDP's and he had to have the tops in those positions. So......I love the idea of taking 2 top WR's and then getting the decent RB's (there are so many this year) but you have to take a stud RB if it falls to you (especially a great pass catcher if it's a PPR)
