Fantasy Draft? Alexander or Tomlinson?

Recommended Posts

Who would you pick and why? It seems to be a toss up for most experts. Our league scores a point per reception also.

LT-- hands down. Why-- Seattle will be down (lost Hutchinson) and I think LT is the much better back anyway. He remids me of Barry Sanders-- and I can't think of another back I would want to be comapred to.

I'd also add Larry Johnson in the mix. One thing about LT is that Philip Rivers is the starting QB with not much experience in the NFL and when he did play last year he didn't look that good so LT might have a few less chances near the end zone. The loss of Steve Hutch is a big loss for Alexander but I don't think his numbers will be affected to much. If I had # 1 pick I'd take Larry.

I would probably take LJ as well. Although he lost his blocking full back and Roaf claims he is retiring so that might affect him some.

But he was unstopable at the end of last year. He carried my fantasy team.

They all have their question marks, but I really don't think you can go wrong with either of them.

LT-has a new QB, but everything else has remained. Have a pretty decent schedule.

Alex- Lost Hutch, but they play in a really weak division and even their our of division schedule is weak. I don't think he'll put up 28tds again, but I really don't see much of a drop off for him this season.

LJ- lost Roaf, his OC, and head coach. I know he was a stud last season, but that is a lot of change.

If it were me in a PPR league, I would go with LT, but like I said you really can't go wrong with any.

LJ is a good choice and so is LT but I would take Alexander the Great if I got the chance. Actually, i hope I get pick #3 that way I will get a better pick on the way back up.

If anyone can ruin a football team it's Herm Edwards. If I get 1st pick (again) this year, I'm going to think long and hard about LJ.

Alexander doesn't get as many catches and I heard they may TRY to pass more this year. Tough to say.

I had LT last year and while he didn't get the projected numbers, he alone won me a few games but wasn't the stud as thought. Shotty didn't call any pass plays to him early, and after a few games they included him in the passing game and SD started winning. For some reason they decided that wasn't any fun and quit passing to LT and started losing again. Go figure....

LT, they're a rushing offense and when they don't feel like rushing they just give it to LT anyway smile.gif

I somehow picked up LT on my FF team... so maybe I'm a little biased now wink.gif

Nobody runs the ball inside the 10 more than Seattle does. They may say they're going to pass more, but I can't believe they're going to change things up that much considering they went to the Super Bowl last year.

LT is probably the best all around player of the three, but he disappeared during the fantasy playoffs last year. The Chargers like that Turner guy as a backup and will probably spell LT more often to keep him fresh.

Seattle has a better overall offense and plays in a weak division. Then again, the last time LT had a rookie QB he caught 100 passes.

Just pray you get a top three pick and flip a coin.

Pray you get the #3 pick and your decision is made all the easier. Heck even at 4 I wouldn't be disappointed in taking either Barber or Portis.

Better yet hope for the last pick so you get two in a row. Ended up with Manning and Harrison one year. That was the year I won it all.

But top 3 for me would have to go like this:

Tomlinson

Alexander

Johnson

I would take LJ all the way #1. He is a stud, and averaged something like 150 yards per game when roaf was out last year. Roaf being gone hurts gonzo the most as he will do more blocking.

If you get points for receptions I would take LT with the second pick.

If no points for receptions I would take Alexander #2. One over looked theme is: he plays Arizona week 14 and San Fran week 15 thats almost a lock to get you to the championship game where he plays SAN Diego in week 16.

      Toying with the idea of heading up there Saturday morning. Only been there a couple times, never on the opener.
    • JBMasterAngler
      Anyone go out on the opener? I usually wait a week before heading up there, so curious to hear some ice/fishing reports.
    • Roscoe010
      Did any of you check out the pits for winter trout opener last weekend? Thanks!
    • leech~~
      Well hopefully you can still get out with Dad another weekend yet this winter. Building memories are things that last.

      I upgraded from my Little Buddy to a Portable Buddy (not a Big Buddy which seemed like over kill for a 2-3 man portable).  I figured that would work best for my needs.  Turns out I was right.  The heater warmed my 949i enough that I could fish with my gloves off which was nice.  I definitely noticed though as soon as a tank ran out, it got chilly quick since I had a few holes open to allow some fresh air in. My dad chickened out since he would be coming from WI and it was snowing over there still the roads were slick (as they were here also).  Also made sense since we didn't know how well the shack would stay warm.  So I stayed close to home.  I was going to head to Cedar Lake near New Prague since it appears to have a healthy pan fish population to keep me entertained, but the guy I talked to at Prior Lake Bait & Tackle said Prior was a better bet, so I took his advice.  I started fishing about 10 am after finding a spot and getting setup in about 20 FOW in the basin away from the crowds.  I only managed to connect on a few dink perch, one that was borderline keeper size that I threw back just before heading home about 5:30.  I didn't mark a single suspended fish in my spot.  I drilled some holes in various depths not far from my shack but still didn't find any marks and got cold and headed back into my warm shack. I had a fathead on a tip up in case a hungry walleye came by but had no takers.  A tip I heard recently was to hook them through the butt and out the side, which makes them sort of upside down which they hate so they continue to struggle and move in the water the whole time trying to right them selves.  I dropped by camera down and watched this and it seemed to work to keep it moving, although I didn't catch anything so who knows if the fish actually like it.

      Not sure what's going on  but I'm still loosing track of days. Bouncing around in the red baron, checking on customers ,enjoying the football game at Hillmens Tall tale Tavern man was that fun, getting a few games of pool in last night to practice for my next match. Playing a round of texas hold em with the wells fargo boys in north dakota, visiting with all the customers, moving houses, plowing new roads, plowing old roads, battling mother nature, the winds were howling  sunday night after another small dumping of snow.
       I wrote in my note book on Wednesday the 17th CLOSED.
       The fishing has been crazy good? Not sure what's that all about but will take it as its so nice to see everyone catching more then a  few.
       Stevejames won my giveaway on Minnesota Outdoorsman, I have been giving a way a free night as a prize on there fishing challenge for a few years. He arrived Friday for old Minnesota with his buddy Mike and there 2 boys Nolan and Ayden. They rented one day so they were here for 2 nights and did real well. I got a great pic of there stringer of fish, It was a treat seeing the kids  outside playing ,enjoying the great outdoors.
       Terry, Sarha ,Carl and Kenny were in florida for 3 nights. They also had a grand time on a grand lake. This was there third year with me. They said they will be back again next year if I will have them? There such nice people, I was able to visit off and on wth them as they fed me breakfast burritos , French dips after the Viking game. Carl got 4 deer  so they also brought me a care package of venison. I'm making my coleslaw for them next year and may treat them to a night of my cooking to boot. I mentioned to Sarah the first day she should tie a string to her fishing pole? OOPs darn if it did not go down a hole.
       Scott the wells fargo boys have also did well, they went to Westwind for fish and the Viking game and also had a hoot. Then when they got back to the house Scott got treated to "yes a elusive yet still catchable upper red lake crappie" A beautiful 14 a half inch masterpiece. Another great group of guys and they got my 10 dollars last night. I played a little to loose and lost all my chips.
       Mel, Dan and Dane arrived for old Minnesota sunday, I told Dan get a line down first thing. Before they were unpacked they had 2  in the bucket. Yesterday Dane was catching fish on the rattle wheel from the top bunk. They enjoyed Fish for dinner last night as Mel is a master chef, she also fed me hodgepodge for breakfast yesterday. They have been coming up here for 14 years summer and winter.
       Snowbear Josh headed home for a couple days so I'm taking care of a couple of his guest and they were slaying the fish the last two days.
       I just talked to Jarred and his buddie Jim they were in montana last night and got there 8.
       Angie and here hubbie and there friends were in montana sunday.  I think they ended up with 9 with there friends, The kids fished in one of Joshes 2 man houses and there friends went home sunday eve,.
        Mother nature has been kicking my but. Yesterday I plowed off and on all day, cleaning up the drifts. Buddy Hillmens Highway is again in great shape. I expect we will be making more main roads in the next day or two.
       I did here form Brandon I had set up in a secret spot and they also did real well Friday eve,
      Ken and his buddies also did well where I plowed them a spot. Throwing darts and hitting bulls eyes feel good. Well its past my starting time. we start at 9, so again its time to check the fluids and hit the ice on such a Grand lake that owes us nothing! Nothing!
