WR or RB w/4th pick? (MJD as my keeper in 10 team PPR League)

R Lo

Below is the list of keepers that are off the board in our draft.


Maurice Jones Drew

Adrian Peterson

Steve Slaton

Matt Forte

Brandon Jacobs

Deangelo Williams

Greg Jennings

Roddy White

Vincent Jackson

Matt Ryan


I have MJD as my keeper (3rd round) and I have the 4th overall pick in the

draft. Up until now I have been focusing on landing either LT or SJax with

my 1st pick and following that with 2 WR's with my next 2 picks. However,

recently I started thinking about landing either Fitz or AJ with my 1st pick

to possibly have both the best projected ppr RB & best projected ppr WR in

the league. The sound of that is very intriguing. Also there wouldn't be as

much of a health concern at with Fitz or AJ as there would be by getting LT

or SJax. The question is, what would you do and why?

Starting Lineup is 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 Flex, 1 TE, 1 PK, 1 Def


With so many RBBC and CoPs stealing carries from RB1s there really aren't that many RB1s anymore.

SJAX could be an RB1, but that NO-line is terrible in St. Louis. 45 sacks and team rushing at 103 YPG.

Even a fully healthy SJAX needs someone infront blocking.


with LT you have to worry about Sproles


Fitzzy is safe. He is not injury prone, the offense is mostly back intact, Edge wasn't exactly an all pro last year.

Starting Fitzgerald and MJD every week will be sweet.


You are in a 10 team league that can start up to 3 RBs. There are enough RBBC that you can still pick up quality Fantasy Football RB2 in the 2nd round (30 ADP when you include the 10 keepers.) If you go to ADP that means someone like:


30 Ronnie Brown RB MIA 27 4 31.71

31 Reggie Bush RB NO 24 3 32.64

32 Brandon Marshall WR DEN 25 3 34.22

33 Kevin Smith RB DET 22 1 34.68

34 Jason Witten TE DAL 27 6 36.53

35 Aaron Rodgers QB GB 25 4 39.15

36 Terrell Owens WR BUF 35 13 40.04

37 Pierre Thomas RB NO 24 2 40.16

38 Ryan Grant RB GB 26 3 41.67

39 T.J. Houshmandzadeh WR SEA 31 8 41.94

40 Darren McFadden RB OAK 21 1 42.52

41 Marshawn Lynch RB BUF 23 2 42.97

It's a really tough decision because as much as I'd love another every down stud back that is non-rbbc, having fitz or andre3000 wouldn't be as much of a risk as LT or Sjax and would start off my 3 WR core perfectly. I am curious to see other opinions in this situation :wacko:

Realize that Boldin was actually the #1 PPR WR last year in terms of PPG, and I believe outscored Fitz in common games played during the regular season. With Fitz, you have concerns on Warners health and whether he will stick with the rhythmn developed with Fitz or go back to the one he had with a healthy Boldin.


I don;t think you can go wrong either way, it's a matter of how comfortable you are with one of the RBs RB mentioned as your #2 all year or if you'd rather go with an LT/SJAx as your #2 with Marshall/TO type as your #1 WR.
