Darren McFadden or Steven Jackson

Postby B3N1ZJAM1N » Fri Aug 12, 2011 11:15 pm

Pretty much through mock drafts these guys have been there for the last pick in the 2nd. Who do you guys think is the better choice? To me its consistency with a lower upside to a injury risk with a high upside. Opinions?

Those two guys are so close. Tough call. You are analyzing it exactly though -- steady, lower risk vs. flashy, higher risk. Me personally I would throw the dice with McFadden because I like "exciting" players and SJAX is a mundane player on a mundane team. Raiders are looking to have an improved squad this year too. Gotta.
Thank God for Football Season.

Do you ahve a RB1 on roster? IF so, it comes down to what type of player your RB1 is. If it is AP or Rice, I take McFadden. If I am already taking a slight risk on a Foster or Charles then I go SJax and minimize the risk.

The St. Louis air offense took a giant leap forward towards the end of last year, which means the likelihood is this year SJax will once again have a bit of room to wiggle. Like Fitz, he's arguably the best player at his position wallowing on a mediocre team, which is unfortunate. bungle613 is right, your RB1 will make a difference in who you choose, but I think SJax has more upside this year than he has in a while.
