WR or RB? 9th pick in 12 team .5PPR

Postby jensen35 » Sun Sep 06, 2009 2:53 pm

Debating between taking a back or receiver at 9th pick. Leaning receiver, wanted some input. Assuming MJD, Forte, LDT, Peterson, Turner will be off board, possibly Deangelo, Andre and Calvin as well (Michigan-based league). Any thoughts appreciated.

def grab DeAngelo if he is there, he will be a stud again this year
I would also grab SJax if he is there

if these 2 are not there then I would draft Calvin,Andre, Fitz or Moss and then take either Slaton or Gore in round 2. However if all 4 of these players are there at ur pick I would be tempted to take Slaton or Gore in round 1 and then take whoever WR falls in the 2nd

The three options to me at that pick are DWilliams, RMoss, and LT. If DWilliams is there, he's the no brainer. If he's not there, I would be tempted to take RMoss. The only way I don't take RMoss is if all 4 of the top WRs are still available. Then, if I really think one of them will make it back through to me with my 2nd round pick, I might take the RB I like the best.

go WR/WR i would definitly take my choice of andre/moss/calvinJ. i would steer clear of fitz that early since he had a career year and boldin's back. if d-will is there,take him. but if not you can go against the usual rb run and take the best qb or WR
i would avoid s-jax since he is a good rb on a bad team and you can get that later
i would avoid LT

Don't pick a WR at the 9 spot. There should be RB's available that will suffice. You can gab a WR on the wrap if you want before they run. If you grab a WR you better hope one of the few decent RB's are there on the wrap.

Thanks for the input guys. However, I am in a very knowledgeable league. There's no shot of the top 4 making it back to me in the 2nd round, and little at even Slaton or Gore slipping that far. I think DeAngelo would probably be the pick if he's there, but if not I am probably going to go WR. How bad would it be on the way back around to take Brady/Brees instead of RB, assuming my RB choices at 16 were Westbrook, Jacobs, CJohnson, Portis and Barber? I'd jump all over Gore/Slaton, just am pretty sure they won't be there.

Myself I'd take RB regardless in Rd1. If the league is knowledgeable than RB's will be taken off the board in the first 2 rds & than it will be slim pickings & you'll be left with RBBC players
