Beware of the "hot" players who will go a round or two early. Hopefully you have your players ranked. Stick to those rankings. Players that have done great in the preseason (Brown, Suggs, Griffin etc.) will probably have great years. But they also will probably get picked higher than they should.

Also, get you two rb's that aren't in rbbc's. Get them early, and worry about the rest later.

Non alcoholic beverages at the draft.
Don't blame us if your players stink the place up....You got our OPINION, your not paying any money for advice!!
If your new guy gets injured.. it happens, and not part of the equation beforehand.
Good Luck, and Thanks for being reasonable.

Unless someone slips really far, dont take a RB in the 2nd round. Get Brown or Griffin as late as you can, around the 3-4th.

Id take one of the top WR in the 2nd. Brown and/or Griffin will do as well as any of the RB that are going in the 2nd round.

I think Henry and Dillon are good in the 2nd.

I want a clear head myself, I drink AFTER the draft...
If ya wanna bring alot of beer ( to get others drunk ), thats another story.

Not everyone will agree, and thats fine.
