FFL Draft question

4 posts in this topic

We have a 16 team league that is primarily scoring (only pts for TDs-6 and 3 pts for 100 rushing/receiving or 300 yds passing).

I have the #2 pick and wont pick again until 31 and 34. Because of the 16 teams RBs are usually even more important than other leagues.

Since I NEED points out of that 1 pick, I am leaning toward Tomlinson since Alexander hasnt been without Hutchinson and LJ hasnt played a full year yet. Assuming LJ or Alexander go #1, am I crazy for passing on one of these guys and taking a "safer" pick that might not do as well? Remember, my 2nd back will likely be a scrub at pick 31.

Personally I think if Alexander is there he is the "safe" pick. Heck in a league so TD heavy I'd take him at #1. I know he lost Hutch, but that line is still solid across the board. Besides, they play in the NFC West. That means they get to play the defenses of SF, AZ, and St. Louis twice a year. The Seattle offense is still going to be pretty darn good, so I think there are going to be plenty of TD opportunities for Alex.

Truthfully though I think it is splitting hairs when looking at the top 3 and it really comes down to personal preference. You can find faults which each of them as well as great upside. Good Luck in your decision.

I would pick Alexander at #1. Most consistant. Less of a gamble than LT or LJ in my mind.

I would go LJ, alex and LT. I also play in a league just like this and you will get frustrated with a few 90 yards rush 55 yards receive games that get you no points with LT. The other two are primarily runners. In the later pick keep an eye on Brandon jacobs. He had 7 td's last year and I predict 10 this year. Other sleepers include Dunn and Foster who will both see goaline carries this year. Good Luck.

p.s. my record for the first three years in this league is 3rd, 2nd, and 2nd. Still looking for the trophy but at least I'm cashing in every year. grin.gif

      Did you finish 7th grade grammar? I'm trying to understand your question...can't!

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff
