GOT #1 AND #4 OVERALL PICKS IN MY DRAFT, WHAT SHOULD I DO???

Postby s5656 » Wed Aug 22, 2012 7:42 pm

14 team league. Standard league. Already had #1 overall pick, traded 2nd and 3rd rounders for #4 overall. I was thinking going Arian Foster #1 and Calvin Johnson #4. This may sound crazy passing on A.Rodgers, but i figure I should be able to pick up Eli or Matt Ryan in the 4th round. You guys think it's a smart move or should I take A.Rodgers 1st and then whichever Rb is left at #4? I'd really appreciate the feedback! THANKS!

i think rodgers if you are in a standard scoring league. johnson is sweet but could easily get hurt. there are alway wr around. look at denver wr's with manning...could be interesting in the later rounds

help please

Taking QBs early will be the #1 folly this year with the position being as deep as it is and the RB position being as shallow as it is. You're strategy is right on man. I'd even debate going Foster + CJ4.24 since high end/solid WR2s can be had in as late as the 5th/6th round this year.

If it was me, I'd go RB and RB again at #4. You can get a solid #1 QB later in the draft as well as solid WR's. Not gonna find much for RB's when you draft again in the fourth round.

Thanks for the feedback. Yeah the RB+RB combo doesnt sound that bad....i know the guy at #2 is taking rice(he slipped by mistake lol) so i figure #1 foster then at #4 (ranked in order: Mccoy, Calvin Johnson, A.Rodgers, Chris Johnson). I would do Chris Johnson, its just that he's facing a very tough schedule in respect to run defenses this year plus not so great QB situation.
