Wallace or Nicks

Postby Toryzo » Wed Aug 22, 2012 4:25 pm

Hello. I am in a 3 player keeper league, standard scoring.

The players I kept are:
Tom Brady
Calvin Johnson
Michael Turner

I pick 7/8 are the upcoming draft. First round I am going to try and get Ryan Mathews. Second round, should I attempt to go for Wallace or Nicks? And if one of them is already taken, what about Cruz?

Like Nicks over Wallace. Cruz over Nicks.

I'd take Nicks. I'd also be hesitant about Matthews because he can't stay healthy.

Help?

I basically need to take Mathews. The only other decent RBs are
1. Matt Forte
2. DeMarco Murray
3. Jamaal Charles

I'd personally take Forte or Murray over Matthews.

I'd rank them

Nicks
Cruz
Wallace

And i'd go with Forte and Charles over Mathews.

Nicks is a no-brainer over Wallace at this point, at least if ADP has anything to say about it, same with Cruz. Wallace, when he does report, is going to have some catching up to do and is projected to start off a bit slow. As for Mathews, at this point I'd easily rather have Charles over him and more than likely Forte. Murray has about the same issues with durability as Mathews dating back to his college days.

The thing is, Charles just recovered from a torn ACL and Forte is going to lose time to his backup

Charles looked fine in the preseason, he showed good lateral movement, better than most were expecting. KC has admitted to wanting to run the ball 500 times this year behind a strong O-line. I think Charles and Hillis are going to be one hell of a tandem this year.

Forte, I have my reservations about but not because Bush. It's important to remember Forte never got GL carries anyway and that's the only real time you'll be seeing Bush. My real problem is the change in the offensive mindset. Forte is undoubtedly going be asked to stay back and protect Cutler a bit more this year. He is not going to be the sole focal point of this offense like he was last year, which IMO, calls for a regression in stats. Will it be dramatic, I don't think so. Enough to merit his ADP be ever so slightly too high, yes.
