Hmm, not bad. Those are my predictions for Hightower and Best, if they can stay healthy that is. I'm in a 12-team PPR league, where all TDs are 6 points, and I'm drafting 12th. I'm drafting Ca. Johnson in the first round for sure, so I'm debating whether to draft Rivers or Fitz in the 2nd. I'm sure I could land Romo, Schaub, or Roethlisberger in the 5th, so if those two RBs pan out, then I could have one heck of a team.

I wouldn't count on Calvin being around at 12, his ADP is 10 right now. Might want to have a backup plan for that pick just in case
And if I were you, I'd definitely be picking Fitz in the 2nd, not Rivers.
I'm high on Hightower based on Shanahan's rep of churning out 1,000 yard backs. That, and i'm assuming they'll utilize his pass catching ability and throw in a couple of screens a game, not counting the occasional check down. As for CJ, my league is in love with QBs, and 3 will be drafted in the first round (Vick, Rodgers, Brady). Take away the Top 6 backs and the Top 2 WR, and i'm left with CJ. At least, thats how i'm hoping it goes.
