If you were pick 5, I would say go Rodgers, however, those big 3 RBs are in rare company nowadays. The dropoff in consistency after them is HUGE, and the floor on them is higher than most RB's ceilings. I would target a high tier QB in round 2 if one of the top 4 are available (and they should be).

Wow... tough decision. Still, I'd take Rodgers since he WILL be the top scorer in your league this year if all TDs=6. And, in a 10 team league, you might even be able to get someone like DMC with your 2nd round pick. Rodgers and a healthy DMC would be a killer combination in your no PPR 6pt TD league.

I've got the 2nd pick in the draft, so I can come away with Arian Foster, LeSean McCoy, or Ray Rice.
But, passing TDs are 6 pts each, so I'm seriously considering taking Rogers.
Should I forgo one of the big 3?
1 of the 3 RB (Personally I have Foster/Rice/McCoy).
At 2.09, there is a fairly decent shot Stafford will be there.
Nothing would suck worse than going Rodgers at 1.02 and seeing Stafford on the board at 2.09.
My 2 cents.

I would pick one of the big 3 unless it was a 2 QB league. The RBs are much rarer than a QB, there only needs to be about 10-15 legitimate QBs per league, but each team will have at least 3 RBs.
In 10 team leagues I've seen Stafford go anywhere from 12, all the way to 30. But if he's there at 19 I would definitely grab him. Or you could wait for when your 4/5 flip comes up, and "reach" for a guy in the next tier of QB. Most will go in that early 5 through end of 6 range, so I wouldn't consider it a reach if you took Matt Ryan there, who has looked killer this preseason, with the knowledge he won't be there for your next pick. This way you could load up on the good RBs and WRs, then grab a top 6 QB to form a solid lineup.
I agree with most. I would definitely take one of the big 3 RB's you have listed. I'm not one to spend high picks on QB's, and I've played in a 6 pt for all TD's, 10 team league for 13 years. I ALWAYS get a good QB late. I think I got Stafford in round 6 or 7 last year. He won't last that long, but there are many lower top tier, high second tier guys that will be plenty good for you. Especially when you have one of the best players in FFB (Foster/Rice/McCoy).
I'm against the grain on this, I think Rodgers is the pick here with QBs getting 6pts/TD. Yeah, none of the "big 3" RBs will be there, but I think that you'll have an oppertunity to get a second tier set of RBs that will go good enough with Rodgers that you'll compete.

Im in complete agreement with this. Id wait and hope to get Stafford or so if you are set on getting a top QB. I have #5 in my draft in a 12 teamer and im still debating Chris Johnson over Rodgers. This league will have 18 rb's drafted by Rd 2 though.
