I have the 5th pick in a 10 team draft - Standard scoring (1 pt per 10 yards and 6 per TD)
Start: 1 qb, 2 rb, 2 wr, 1 Flex , 1 TE
LT - 30 yrs old , injuries and sproles increased work load but play in weak division S-jax - weak offense (avery injured), improving but weak O-line but Spags plans to get him 300 carries if he can stay healthy DeAngelo - Panthers have strong O-line, Stewart injured but steals some goal line. Faces NE, MIN, NYG weeks 14-16 Chris Johnson - 2nd year and Lendale steals goalline, struggling in preseason (15 carries - 26 yds), O-line weakening ?
Which RB should I target at #5 assuming the top 4 (AP, MJD, Turner, Forte) are off the board.
I'm struggling with a similar issue. I am able to keep 2 players from last year and I'm trying to decide between Jackson, Johnson, and Fitzgerald. I'm guessing by your post that you'd take both RBs over Fitzgerald. Is that correct?
In your case, I would pick Jackson. I will likely do the same, but my question remains: Johnson or Fitzgerald?
my god there are about 850 posts about this draft spot. take a look down the board about this very decision.
i rank them: LT - healthy Gates and Rivers not to mention himself only means great things. asking for 1200 rush yards and 300 receiving yards to go with a comboed 13-16 TDs total is not too far out of question. best team of the 4. SJax - Injuries are way too much of a concern for him to be at the top of the list, will still be one of the very few everydown backs left in the league and is an awesome receiving back, but injuries kill his value. DWill - yes JStew has injury wows, but will still vulture touches from DWill. not to mention i think DWill has mad talent, but to think that he duplicates last years stats this year is just about crazy. CJ - Fat boy White has came into camp thinner and has looked ok in preseason, where as CJ.24 hasn't looked quite as good as last year, LenDale will steal many more carries this year then last and of course all the TDs inside the 20.
man - tough... in a non-ppr, I think I go (Billy) D Williams. Start of year I wasn't big on him - 1 year fluke came to mind - but man, he's looked pretty good in preseason. Sjax just too risky in that offense and health - if a PPR, yeah I would take him that high... non ppr, not worth the risk, imo. LDT, no thanks. CJ, I like him but not at 5.

PLEASE do not ever make this comparison again haha. These are two very different RB with very different running/playmaking styles, add to the fact of two totally different offenses. Oh and not to mention LT had a 'turf toe' injury last year not Alexander's mile long list of injuries ranging from a broken wrist to twisted knees and ankles, not even close to LTs... bad comparison btw...
SJax - The only weapon in STL which is both a blessing and a curse. LT - He will bounce back this year after battling turf toe all year last year and never being fully normal. D Will - Loses carries to J.Stew but should have a good year (though im not sure he can repeat last year) CJ - Will lose goalline carries to Lendale
