First off, I want to say this board is awesome and thanks to all the posters out there who provided invaluable recommandations on this site over the last 3 years that I've been playing FF.
I've learned a lot the last of couple of years.
Ok here's my situation: I'm in a standard scoring yahoo league. 10 teams and I finished first last year (after finishing 2nd to last the previous year) which means I'll be drafting 10th this year. I get to protect 3 of the following players from my team:
QB: Rodgers, Palmer
RB: Ray Rice, Pierre Thomas, Rashad Mendenhall, Ronnie Brown, Ryan Grant, LeSean McCoy
W/R: Steve Smith (CAR), S. Holmes, Housmandzadeh, Crabtree
TE: J Finley
I'm going with Rodgers and Rice as my first two choices. I'm thinking RB is the way to go for my 3rd keeper. For some reason, I'm leaning to keep Thomas over Mendenhall. I'm thinking Thomas will have a break-out season and with the NO offense, he will get more goal-line opportunities than Mendenhall. Anyone agree ?
thanks in advance
