Whos Everyones #2

Recommended Posts

zamboni

Tomlinson first, obviously. Stephen Jackson #2?? Thats what all the websites are saying. Wouldn't Shaun Alexander or Larry Johnson be a better bet? Whats everyones take on Marion Barber as a top 5- I think he will shine this season. Or do you wait and hope to steal him in the 3rd round?

i hope you mean other former gopher laurence maroney, cuz barber shouldnt be a 1st or 2nd round back, not with the platoon between him and jones.

I'd go Jackson #2 because he is going to catch a lot of balls out of the backfield as well as carrying the ball. He is also young and has a good O-line in front of him along with a good QB running the offense. Having Holt and Bruce to catch balls will help prevent D's from stacking the line to stop the running game. I also heard that Linehan wants to get Jackson between 80-90 catches out of the backfield this season in addition to a normal carrying load.

Alexander and Johnson are both still great fantasy backs but Jackson is younger than both. Alexander is getting up in age, I think he will be fine this year but you never know his production could start tailing off now. LJ is younger but has lost some key offensive line guys and may have a inexperienced QB starting allowing Defenses to stack the line on him.

I think losing Green will increase his carries big time.

Barber is tearing it up this preseason, and I think he is truly better than Jones.

One of my fantasy Mags has Barber rated 20th for RB's and Jones rated 31st. Barber usually gets the touches around the endzone. grin.gif

I picked up Barber in the 4th round pretty happy with that.

20th ranked RB would probably mean a 4th round pick.

In a 12 man league- that could mean a 2nd rounder. Usually entire first rd is RBs except for the guy that takes Manning, and 2nd is more RBs. I guess it depends on how scoring is set up in your league though. When I was on CBS QBs weren't given points like RBs, so RBs basically ran the draft for the first round and a half

I had the #2 pick in one of my drafts and there was no question that I took Jackson. St Louis has a high scoring offense this year and he should put up big numbers. I also scored Barber in the 7th round. Do you guys think I should handcuff Leonard in FA? What do you guys think about making a trade for Julius Jones so I have the complete running game of Dallas? Or should I trade Barber to pick up another WR. I already have Jackson, Cedric Benson, Portis and Betts for RB's

You don't want both Jones and Barber, Barber will get the points while Jones will get it between the 20's. Portis is healthy again I believe so you may want to unload Betts.

Has anyone ever done an auction draft?? I did one on Saturday for the 1st time with a $200 cap. My team actually isnt bad foe being a 1st timer.

QB's- Young & Rothisberger

Rb's -Maroney, Barber, Jones-Drew, A.Green and T.Bell

WR's- C.Johnson (cinci), Wayne, Driver and Bruce.

TE- Gates and Cooley

K- Gould and DEF is SD, I still had $7.00 at the end.

1st pick was Tomlinson and he was sold for $96 which I thought was crazy.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!
