Who do you select? Notably most leagues are different in their scoring and I am asking this question assuming it isn't a keeper league. I just started to rank some players last night (last year I was ranking players in June which was WAY too early) and I realized after the top 5 RBs the players statistics significantly deteriorates Last year I lucked out with the 4th overall pick in the draft but I can't imagine getting 10 or 12 after everyone selects RBs with their first pick (well there is always 2 guys who draft Manning/Brady every draft has em). I would like to contend that Brian Westbrook would probably be my first overall selection. Brian had over 2,000 total yards and was the only back (I believe) to do so last year. I see Westbrook as the new Tiki Barber. A guy who had a light amount of carries early in his career and is ripping off numbers late in his career since he hasn't taken as many hits and has the experienced vision. Here is my problem with picking LT. The boy is very consistent but...last season it took him a bit of time to start pumping out crazy games. A bit too late for my tastes. He is also getting older I mean you could argue that he is in the prime age as a RB (considered ages 28-30). Theoretically most RBs tend to have their best performances in that age range. But the RB has been getting a lot of carries and I think he will dip off a bit in the next year or two... Now Adrian Peterson is a different story. I would take him in a heartbeat if it wasn't for his tendency to get injured. Having an injured RB in a FF league is usually a difficult if not impossible obstacle to overcome. Now the Vikings O-Line is a force to be reckoned with and I know I will be half-tempted to take Adrian first...(in fact I know I would be heavily tempted to take him) but it's a gamble. The payoff could be HUGE if he is healthy the entire season...or it could end my FF season prematurely. Now if I wanted to be incredibly safe, I would probably pick Addai. The guy will get yards and TDs and is not likely to get injured. There is little risk, but not much reward in picking this RB since the colts spread the ball around. Anyways I will post more blurbs like this as FF season takes off.
