Help me decide the 2nd overall pick WHIR as always

Postby fierro33 » Mon Aug 22, 2011 2:07 pm

ok I have the 1.02 pick in a 3 player keeper PPR 12 team

so far my team is this:

Foster
Nicks
Wallace

only players outside of rds 1-3 can be kept by the way.

my next 3 picks are

3.02
4.01
6.08

so as u can see i do not have a 2nd round pick. Pretty much any good wr will be gone by 3.02 as guys like wallace,austin etc are being kept.

my question is..

do i take ray rice or chris johnson at 1.02?(foster,charles,mccoy,mendy are being kept) or do i take andre johnson or roddy white?


heres the thing: we can start EITHER 1RB/3WR or 2RB/2WR



so my core starters would look like this:

Foster
Rice or CJ

Nicks
Wallace


OR

Foster

Andre or roddy
Nicks
Wallace



at picks 3.02 and 4.01 i would prob be wise to take a qb/te

Given PPR, you should roll with Ray Rice. The more his holdout drags, the less I like Chris Johnson: durability / injury, loss of actual regular season games, less touches. As far as to drafting him over a top-flight WR, i still like RR over ANYONE you can get. I love his late-season schedule, his new fullback, the promise of more goal-line looks. He could be Fantasy #1 this year, legitimately (not that you can go wrong with AJ or Roddy, but their ceiling isn't quite as high, IMO).

Assuming CJ2K gets paid... and that's a big assumption... I'd take him over Rice in PPR all day and watch the checkdowns roll in with Hasselbeck.

I'm from Seattle, and I can tell you that Hass's biggest weakness now is his ability to go through his progressions. He makes it through them all. HAHA.

If you think CJ2K will be playing this year, draft him.

I like Andre Johnson over the field if you don't. Love his 10 catch/game potential, plus stability of system, plus softer coverages due to the Foster surprise, plus no new threats to his targets like an emerging Harry Douglas, or Julio.

Here's mine:

I would take Rice. CJ and the Titans are not close and could go into the season. Losing 2-3 games and then coming back rusty is not a good start with a 1.02 pick. PLay dafe and still get an elite back in Rice.

I'd roll with Rice. The PPR and CJ's hold out.. I think Rice will have a monster year, I could be mistaken but I believe he is in a contract year as well. I contemplated trading the first overall pick for 5th(other picks also) to drop down and get Rice, just never could work it out.

help me out.
