How early to take a 3rd RB?

Postby BeefSandwiches » Thu Aug 26, 2004 12:51 pm

I am a big believer of RB-RB-WR but then it's basically best available. When do you normally grab a 3rd RB? Will you pass up a WR in the third for a good RB or do you feel the need to continue filling your weekly lineup?

If a RB I really like slips into the 3rd round, I would have no problem whatsoever going RB, RB, RB. I got Fred Taylor in the 3rd last year in one of my leagues.

It depends on who your first two RB are. If they are questionable RB, then I would take an extra one fairly early. For instance, I recently drafted Edge and Dillon and then in the fourth snagged Griffin since I was nervous about not having a true stud RB

I always just take best available regardless of position (unless of course it's last rounds and I have no TE or D or whatever). Ideally I end up with a WR and two RB after three rounds but I have no problem taking RB, RB, RB if guys I like are on the table.

i think it also depends on your starting requirements. Im in a league where we have 2rb and then a flex. It kinda makes those rb's a little bit more valuable. So i would probably look at them twice in the 3rd and rethink it over.

LOL!

Damn, Pigs, I was about to say the exact same thing....

Anyways, it's best available the whole way through, IMO...

If RB's keep slipping to me, I'll take them rounds 1-5... You can always deal RB's for WR's, no problem, and there are ALWAYS going to be WR's that break out on the wire... The same cannot be said about RB's, necessarily...

Get yourself an average draft position chart from Antsports, and if you see someone slipping beyond where they should, snag them... ESPECIALLY RB's...
