Who is the #1 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts?

Who is the #1 pick in rookie dynasty league drafts? You are voting on who will have the best fantasy football production in the NFL over the next 4 or 5 years with the team on which the player was just drafted, NOT who will have the best year in 2011. Assume standard scoring (1 pt. per 10 yards rushing / receiving, and no PPR) Also please assume that you have a balanced roster and don't have a great specific need for a QB, WR, etc.

Feel free to discuss the pros and cons of these players - this could be helpful for some and generate some good discussion. If you'd like to vote for a player NOT on this list, then please vote "other" and make a post to discuss the player. This will serve as a write-in vote for that player. ;-D

Voted for AJ Green.

I think it's between Green, Ingram, and Thomas.

Thomas will be the first rookie taken in redrafts based on his situation, but he isn't as talented as the other two and situations change.

Ingram's situation is somewhat of a mess where it may take two years before he is getting a big workload, and he's in a pass-heavy offense. Plus there are minor concerns about his knee.

Green is billed as the next elite receiver and his biggest question mark is his quarterback. Larry Fitzgerald had an okay season considering his quarterback situation last year, and in general the elite receivers tend to "get theirs" even when their QB sucks. I think Green has both the highest floor and the highest ceiling in this draft, as he could be the #1 fantasy WR in a few years time.

Green! ;-D

Why are all the polls so difficult to read now - they are jumbled, can we go back to the old format of every choice in one neat column???

I was perplexed about this as well. This was my first time running into this, is it all polls nowadays that are FUBAR? Fyi, the poll seems to display properly in Internet Explorer, but was screwed up in Firefox and Opera. :~(

Non-PPR, I think it's Ingram. He has a chance to be a top 7 or 8 RB pretty quickly. Pierre and Bush are there, but Pierre was resigned for backup money, and Bush will have to do so as well if he wants to stay. If you're picking 1st based on merit, you might go another way due to the risk Ingram will be worn down by the time you are ready to win, but if you're picking 1st and plan on contending, Ingram makes a good team better right away.

PPR, I think it's a coinflip between Green and Julio. Green is safer in a sense because he won't lose value even if he's hit and miss for the first couple years. I think Julio is a beast and his situation is great. Atlanta will be more of a passing team as Turner slows down another step, and that coupled with Gonzalez's retirement after this year will provide plenty of targets for Julio to be a fantasy top 15 WR pretty early.

The html <dl> tags for the poll look like they're missing a css class. I'd say add

Code: Select all
display: list-item;


to the "fieldset.polls dl" style in style.php, or something similar.

My initial vote would have been Julio Jones, but after I thought about it, I voted other and think that its going to be Jonathon Baldwin, KC WR out of PITT. He's a big WR obviously means big target, and on a team with threats that include Bowe, Moeaki, and Charles out of the back field, I think he's got the surrounding cast that will open him up for years to come.

Honestly, I don't know where to go with this one.

Green is obviously a great talent but I have a bit of concern over the state of affairs in CIN. I'm not a Dalton believer at all (and very happy Seattle didn't pick him at 1.25) and I wonder how long it will be before CIN--assuming I'm right--will look for a replacement. That could easily mean 5 years before Green has a suitable QB in place--he might not be able to improve his situation until he signs with a new team.

Jones is not as solid of a talent but has clearly landed himself in a better position. Roddy White will take coverage away from his side and the Falcons have a strong QB and running game.

Ingram finds himself on a great team but in a crowded backfield. If Reggie Bush comes back there's going to be fewer carries for everyone and Ingram doesn't see 3 downs any time soon.

I don't consider Ryan Williams or Daniel Thomas candidates for #1 overall selection personally.

I think ultimately, in a completely neutral setting, I have to go with the talent which is Green. It's hard not to go RB first...
