Need RB advice

Postby Pitfan2782 » Thu Aug 18, 2011 2:47 pm

12-Team PPR league, 6pts all TDs. 12th pick. Snake Draft.

It's the 3rd round, and I have no RBs on my squad. I'm going RB/RB here, and these players are still on the board: Jahvid Best, Shonne Green, Felix Jones, and Knowshon Moreno. Which two do you draft, and why?

Id prob take Greene with at least one of them. The other 3 are up in the air. I'd probably lean a little towards Moreno tho. He did good things in PPR at the end of last year and is now in a run first offense

I'd go Greene first thing for sure, and then who knows. By the time you pick again the landscape will surely be different.

I like to use average draft position to help with these situations becasue sometimes players will fall to you later. Greene for sure, workhorse back on a good team. Best has the higher ADP of the remaining 3 but i dont know about his offense. I think id take Moreno from the other 3 but its a toss up. With Fox calling the plays it could be a very run heavy offense. Felix will get his first chance to carry the load in Dallas so could break out as well. i have them all very close on my board. You also might be able to steal Felix in the 5th. His average draft position is #53.

Average draft positions according to my sources:
Greene: #32
Best #39
Moreno #41
Felix #53

I would say Greene & then either Best or Jones.

I'm not touching Moreno until Denver figures out there QB situation. If Tebow starts teams will stack the box. I know Fox has a good rep for running (ie Williams & Stewart) but Moreno hasn't shown me much. Granted Best & Jones have had injury problems but I feel they've shown me more of their potential.

I'd roll with Best and Felix. Because of their offenses both of those guys have the highest ceiling in PPR. Neither have a ton of competition either.

Greene might be alright but he's not going to be in on 3rd downs and he's just a guy. Plus LT is right there(who's having a pretty good camp). It could be another hot hand situation.

I'm avoiding Moreno personally. McGahee is there and not only will he take goal line/short yardage but he could eat some of the early downs too. Their O-line is questionable and with their defense it's likely going to be another situation where they are going to get run over and the offense won't be on the field long and will abandon the run.
