I voted Chris Johnson. I had the 5th pick tonight in a 10 team standard scoring league and was prepared to take Chris Johnson at 5th overall. Aaron Rodgers fell to me, so I ended up not selecting Johnson. Rodgers is a bit different than Brady because Rodgers adds value with his legs that Brady does not. I would go Chris Johnson here just because the RB pool dries up very quickly.

.5 PPR devalues QBs relative to other positions to some degree, but the 6 PTs per passing TD elevates the elite QBs from the next tier down, so my evaluation based on standard scoring holds relatively true in this situation.

Listen to SameSong, he's hit the nail on the head. Even if CJ doesn't play like he used to, he's still going to be significantly better than any RB you get in the mid-2nd round. QB, on the other hand, isn't as much of a drop off and Stafford or Newton in the 2nd are both going to give you spectacular results. CJ at #5 all the way.

This all the way. He's the safest RB pick out there after the top 3 and much safer than anything you'll get in round 2.

I think either pick is a win-win situation, but I'd have to go with CJ2K on this one. I think he's in for a monster year. Top-5 RB fsho.

That said, Brady will be the top QB this year, ahead of Rogers and Brees. Callin' it.
