You better take QB, WR, RB, best available WR/RB....and hope you hit top 5 fantasy player at each position considering you don't draft until rd. 11...........why would you trade draft picks without consulting the cafe first?

This. I think you're pretty toast, especially as none of your picks are top 5.

You have to go high-risk high-reward, IMO.

Foster/Rice/McCoy/Rodgers/Calvin Johnson/Chris Johnson/Brady/Brees WILL be gone by the time you pick. No ifs, ands, or buts.

If ANY of those fall, you take them. No questions asked.

For your four picks, I target the following high-risk high-reward draft:
One of Cam Newton/Matt Stafford (I prefer Stafford)
Two of Jamaal Charles/Darren McFadden/Forte/Mathews/MJD (that's my order of preference, though I bet Darren McFadden will also be gone)
Julio Jones

All of these guys are POTENTIALLY tops at their positions. Obviously not expected to be, given injury risks (DMC/Charles) or still being unknown youngsters (Julio). But potentially. You need all 4 to hit to win.

By the time your 11th rounder rolls around, you need to grab every single potential stud sleeper you can find, no matter if they're a handcuff or not. Brandon LaFell, Jacquizz Rodgers, Isaiah Pead, Evan Royster, Rashad Jennings, Titus Young. I'd grab Kyle Rudolph at TE (I assume the rest of the good ones will be long gone).

Only once you've filled out your starting roster and at least 3 RB/WRs, go ahead and reach for a defense. I hate drafting defenses early, but with 14 teams, you do run into the issue of grabbing a bad one. Then fill in the rest of your RB/WRs and a bench QB (Flynn or Locker probably).

14 rounds? You have 1 pick in each round 11-14?
You really need to hit on all 4 of your 1st round picks and in my opinion you have to get at least 3 RBs because in a 14 team league the RB pool is going to be really dry by your 11th round pick.

Really hope you have those picks round 11-whatever because your gonna need them to grab a couple wr's, qb and te before 26 of them are off the board.

TE and WR are for sure the deepest positions so I wouldn't take one of them with your 1st 4 picks unless you miss out on the QBs. Assuming you have one pick in each round 11-14 you should try to get 2 of Greg Little, Jon Baldwin, Mike Williams, Brandon LaFell, whoever you like with your 11th and 12th.

As the above guy said Kyle Rudolph/Flynn/Locker in round 13/14th but guys like Titus Young, Jacquizz Rodgers, Evan Royster, and Rashad Jennings should be gone before round 11. Don't draft a DST or K just wait and grab them in FA.

Personally Id go with 3 RBs then 1 of Brady/Brees/Julio Jones in that order. Or if you miss out on Brady/Brees and don't like the Julio pick go with 4 RBs since you can start 3 and any you get with your picks are going to be high injury risks. I really don't like the idea of Stafford or Cam in the 1st unless you have strange scoring.

Qb is also pretty deep. Make sure you get two stud RBs and a stud WR top notch.

Just to clarify, after my first 4 picks I have picks in rounds: 11, 12, 12, 12, 12, 12, 13, 13, 13, 14.

I basically need some sleepers from you guys who are ranked outside the top 125 overall.3

So far you guys gave me:

(QB) Matt Flynn (SEA)
(QB) Jake Locker (TEN)

(RB) Rashad Jennings (JAX)
(RB) Isaiah Pead (STL)
(RB) Jacquizz Rodgers (ATL)
(RB) Evan Royster (WAS)

(WR) Jon Baldwin (KC)
(WR) Brandon LaFell (CAR)
(WR) Greg Little (CLE)
(WR) Titus Young (DET)
(WR) Mike Williams (TB)

(TE) Kyle Rudolph (MIN)

Anyone else I should add to my list? I draft in 4 days! You guys have been great so far. Keep it coming.....

Wow, that is a crazy draft. To me you need to hit on your 4 early picks, need all 4 to play well and stay healthy. The best you can hope for is one of your late picks to play well, then you need to be all over the wavier wire taking any possibly breakout player available. Good luck.

Rashad Jennings, if he lasts that long. As long as MJD is out, he benefits and becomes a bigger part of the offense.
