Yeah, I was actually torn on MJD, SJax and Forte for my round 2 pick. I'm not sure how I feel about my selection of Forte... I am pretty stoked to get the best TE in football in the third though (assuming this 4th surgery goes well... sigh).

Don't exactly love Murray, but I felt I had to take him there because 1. I feel there is a significant drop off at RB after him and 2. Stevoo doesn't have a RB yet... I would expect him to take at least one at his 3.12/4.01 turn... sorry bud. :-)

Same boat. I was torn between McFadden and Murray at the position, and felt I had to take one since you needed 1 and Stevoo needed 2 before there was a tier dropoff.

Hell I was considering Jackson/MJD/Ridley/McFadden/Murray when I took Chris Johnson too. Have them all tightly ranked at the moment.

Debated DMC for a bit myself, but as my sig below illustrates he's a headache to own. His injury history no longer makes it worth going for him in the first 2 rounds... If it was PPR I might have given him a look in the third. The kid has talent, and OAK is reverting back to the PB scheme, but I can't talk myself into pulling the trigger. He's in a similar spot as MJD and a 2012 Adrian Peterson as far as rolling the dice. He's really gonna have to go off this year if he wants to be taken seriously. Another major injury and he will find himself on a new team as a back up.

Would have loved to scoop him up, so I went in a different direction instead. We will see how this works out :/

Your hand was kind of forced. Might as well go with the BPA instead of reaching for a back.

I was debating between SJax and MJD for the round 3 pick. Tough choice, but went with SJax based on health and the offense he is in. He could pile up 12+ TDs in this offense.

I like the Forte pick. I have him slightly ahead of SJax and MJD. Younger, and focal point of the offense. SJax's age and wear and tear scares me a bit.

WR looks very deep this year. VJaz and Fitz going late third/early fourth prove that.

Ah, I was hoping David Wilson would fall to 3.12.

I have to say, I hate having the #1 overall pick in this one. I don't really think AP is that much more of an upgrade over the top 10 RBs to justify waiting for another 24 picks to draft again. Maybe that's just me, though. I would have rather had #5 or #6.
