4th pick you say...

Hmm...

Tiki
Will Green
Chad Johnson
Rogers
Booker
Hasselbeck
Pennington
Andre Johnson

If you can trade down only as far as to assure yourself one of these 8, I'd do a deal. Otherwise, keep the pick....

Best guy on the board is Tiki, and I'd take him; if for nothing more than to trade him for a better WR. He's a borderline 1st/2nd back. Some team has to need that.

I'd take Chad Johnson. They will be behind alot so alot of passing will be going on, and I think he is good enough to start for a fantasy team. Or if you dont want to gamble just take Will Green or Barber. Personally I think last year was the peak for Barber and I would take Green

Drafting Barber or Green then trading them later for a 1st round pick or a better WR sounds great!

Thanks

In a keeper league, Green and CJohnson seem to have the most value. Johnson could very well be a top twenty back for several years and that could solve your WR problem. That being said, with a premium on running backs, you have to keep the pick and go with Barber or Green if they're still available. Wait until the first top tier running back goes down this season, and then dangle one or the other in front of the owner for a top ten receiver.

If they're both taken by number four, which is a strong possibility, I would take Johnson.
It's time to roll the dice!
