Landed the 3rd pick, who should I select?!!?

Postby TheGhost » Sun Aug 19, 2012 9:24 pm

I play in a 10 team, H2H (point based system), PPR. 6 points for rushing and passing TD's. Bonus points for reaching yardage milestones for both rushing and passing. 5 point bonus for reaching 22 rushing attempts.

Is it a no-brainer to select one of Foster, Rice, and McCoy?

So how would you rate the top 3 players given this scoring system? Thanks!!

;-D

If Rice is there at 3, then he is the guy I want.

So if Rice and Foster are gone who would you select between Rodgers and McCoy?

I'm taking any of those three rb's and coming out of the draft smiling. All three are the main guy and they all will catch passes for you. The drop off at RB from those three to what will most likely be available in Rd 2/3 is too great.

I'd go McCoy since he can probably reach 22 rush attempts more often than not. Rodgers may hit passing milestones but McCoy has the possibility to hit rushing and maybe even a few receiving milestones.

I'm leaning McCoy if Foster/Rice go top 2. But what exactly are the milestones? 300 yards passing/100 rushing/100receiving?

Depends on exactly what the milestones are. And I thought one of the top RB3, but after looking at the stats for my league last year which was 6pt TDs and .5ppr, Brady scored less than Rodgers and Brees but was still 100+pts better than McCoy who scored more than Foster and Rice. Every league isn't the same, but those numbers made me change my approach and I am now looking to select one of the 3 QB's with the 3rd pick.

QB depth is great in this draft. Foster, Rice, and McCoy. Whoever the odd man out is for the 3rd pick, take him. No brainer.
