If you are picking #5, how would you set up your draft. Im kinda new to this hole live draft stuff, so im looking for some help.

Depends on the leauge usually but RB is always a good place to start. With the 5th pick you should be able to get someone decent.

In my league we could a reception as a point so a good running back that can catch out of the back field is a big point getter so thats where I would start.

start off looking to select Frank Gore or Joseph Addia in the first round. Then play the board. If thier are any top 10 maybe 12 RB still on the board draft them with your second pick. Otherwise don't be afraid to grab a top 5 WR. If the RB went early look for another WR in the 3rd round as no one else will be looking RB and virtually the same RB's will be there in the 4th and maybe 5th round.

Agree with all, take the top available RB at #5 (although some will be tempted by P. Manning). Then take the next best RB on the way back down the order and hope that a QB and a WR or two has been taken so that you get a good #2. Nobody is real sure on the top WR's as any of 4-5 guys are all in the mix and you may see one of them in the third round depending on who goes to the top four teams at the end of round two and start of round three.

Only way I'd change this up is in a heavy QB scoring league where Peyton Manning is a real option at #5. Every year a QB finishes number 2 or 3 in scoring that wasn't taken until the later rounds--wait on them and some real good ones in proven systems like Kitna or Bulger may be available later while you have been loading up on RB's and WR's (maybe a top TE if your league doesn't mix them with the WR's).

I have played in eight team leagues, ten team leagues and even a 14 team league and I always leave the 14 team league draft hating my team since the players are so spread out.

my stategy this year is to go all rb's and wr's in the first 5 to 6 rounds then im gonna look for qbs in the later rounds. based on Strength of sched., a qb by committee deal. i will probably take one of the top 3 def. in the 6th. then a te and more wrs and sleeper rb's. kicker in the last two rounds.

ok, I just did a draft where I picked second.

#1 Steven Jackson

#2 Chad johnson not any super quality Rbs left so grab a top WR

#3 T. Owens Same as above

#4 Marshawn Lynch -- as stated in an earlier post, once most players have thier 2 RB they will begin to look WR and QB, so Lynch and early 3rd round pick slipped to the bottom of the 4th round.

I was in 4 FF drafts today. Tomlinson went #1 every time. Jackson went #2 twice. Larry Johnson went #2 and Jackson #3 one time and Alexander went #2 LJ #3 and Jackson #4 the other time. The time that Alexander went everybody was amazed because he shouldn't have gone that high in the draft, the guy who took him is a complete seahawk freak and loves any of their players.

One of the drafts today I was drafting someone elses team and I had the #5 pick. I took Manning in rnd 1, Harrison in Rnd 2, could have taken wayne in rnd 3 but didn't because the actual owner wouldn't have so I took TJ Housh, Rnd 4 I took Colston and my RB's for him were McGahee and R. Brown I think. I know when I was done I thought the team wasn't all that bad and I would take it for mine if I could have.

That is too much stock in Indy for me! No RB's in the 1st three round is also risky and then ending up with Brown is also a crap-shoot. Maybe I'm wrong, but then again it's not your team grin.gif

I know he ended up with a weak rb core but it is only an 8 man league so there are still some decent RB's out there for pickup if Brown doesn't do real well. I am on the fence with him, he hasn't had a great preseason but with Cam Cameron there I think he could make Brown into a really good RB. Look what he did with Tomlinson as the O-Coordinator. But you hit it on the head...It's not my team so I was experimenting a little!! grin.gifgrin.gif

      How do you even get on this lake to ice fish?  Seems to be surrounded by Private land.

      Well Friday was a little slow picked up some nice gills here and there no crappies. Sat morning picked up a couple 10 inch gills and a couple more for the bucket here and there. Sat night 930 the crappies came through I caught 17 biggest was 12. Sunday picked a few more gills up for the bucket before heading off to a different lake for walleye. again fish wanted nothing to do with minnows only caught one with them. All other fish caught on a tungsten orange and green glow tipped with only a wax worm.   we were in 12 fow the sunfish were 2 off the bottom crappie cruising 4 off bottom Side note tried walleye tonight missed 3 of them! Now I remember why I don't walleye fish much stupid things

      I had the showdown as a hole hopping sonar but found I used my LX5 a lot more.  I went to the 7 and did not like it because it was bulky and hard to get used to both hopping holes and room inside one man Frabile.  Sold the 7 and bought another LX5 and do not see me going back to any other.  I have a wheel house and found is the only time I used the 7.  If you do a lot of fishing outside and like to move around.  I would stick with the 5, I now own two of them and don't see me using anything else.

      I'm thinking the opposite could be happening. Some people are doing fairly good and they are not saying anything. Last year a person I know did real good over 1 mile from anyone and called one friend with the coordinates of where to meet him in 2 days. He got back in 2 days and found over 30 wheelhouses right on his coordinates. His one friend that he told had then told another friend who told another friend and on and on. The key to ice fishing URL has always been to stay away from the crowds but now a good report brings in a crowd. Some of the business have decided that fewer fishermen having good fishing could be a better long term plan then many fishermen having poor fishing so they are not reporting good fishing.   Me, I think the fishing this winter is far better then last winter. Most of the people fishing URL now learned to fish URL by going deeper and deeper for the crappies. Before the crappie boom very few fishermen went deeper then 10 feet of water for walleyes. If we got into crappies or perch we knew we were too deep for the best walleye fishing. Most of my fishing this year has been in 8 feet of water or less. But also I'm standing outside and not sitting in a house. On URL you will usually get 4 or 5 times more fish standing outside or in a portable then you will in a house. I think it is from the noise or vibrations. shaky and Doc could set their house in 6 feet of water and do very good but they fished very quietly.  When fishing they had no radio or TV turned on, no generator, stepped softly and talk in whispers,,,,and they caught a lot of fish. I've sat with a camera and watched walleyes spook away when the heating stove ignited, when I dropped a rod on the floor and when I slid a chair across the floor. That is why all of our rental houses had a rubberized floor, to dampen the noise. Every year more and more people are fishing in houses rather then standing outside or in portables and I wonder if that isn't going to change how many fish are caught for each hour of "fishing pressure"/angler hours.  Sure it is nice to sit in a warm house watching TV while fishing but at least on URL I think you will also catch less fish. It will interesting to see if the DNR creel census starts to show a lower catch per hour as the percentage of people fishing from wheelhouses increases.
