I have the 4th overall pick in tonight's Chiefsplanet (3rd and 20) fantasy league.

Assuming that LJ, Alexander, and Tomlinson are gone who would you take at #4? Back up your suggestion please.

IMO, 4th is the worst spot in the draft. I'd rather be #10.

Rudi Johnson is extremely consistant. :hmmm:

The Edge is a risk.

I go Clinton Portis.

I may take Portis with the 2nd pick.

I wouldn't risk it.

You have to take Alexander, LT, or Larry.

Big three.

Bush is an option.

Portis is the leading candidate right now. I expect him to excel in Saunders' running schemes.

He's just not the type of player I want to bank my season on.

I wouldn't take Bush before the 4th round. I'd probably take McAllister first.

chop
07-30-2006, 01:41 PM
the 4th is still too early for Bush

You think 4th is bad, try 7th. I'm in the middle of every round.

I have to work tonight, but should be home in time for the draft.

chop
07-30-2006, 01:42 PM
Although Bush is an option, he is an unlikely option.

Hoover
07-30-2006, 01:42 PM
You should get one of the top three RB's I'm taking Marc Boerigter with the 3rd pick

07-30-2006, 01:42 PM
the 4th is still too early for BushActually, I agree.

Besides being a rookie, he's playing on a RBBC team. I'd have to have my starting lineup set before I took him.

I have to work tonight, but should be home in time for the draft.I'd prefer 7, just because 7th, rnd 2 comes around quicker.

4th is too late for a sure stud, but early enough that he'll have to be the backbone of your team because you pick so late in round 2. I really despise this position.

Bo is still an option for me at #2. Don't get your hopes up.

Seriously don't rule out Rudi Johnson, especially with the starting QB coming off of injury, he may just tear it up this year.

He doesn't get much respect, if any, but if you look at your stats from year's past, he brings it, and pretty consistently.

Either him or Tiki Torch.

Moooo

Dude, I really think you should draft Curtis Martin, really, seriously, I mean it...

Who do you take at #1? Seriously...

jspchief
07-30-2006, 04:27 PM
Who do you take at #1? Seriously...LJ, Alexander, or Tomlinson. Flip a coin. They are clearly the top 3.

Fried Meat Ball!
07-30-2006, 04:28 PM
What about Manning?

Hoover
07-30-2006, 04:29 PM
I think Alexander has to be the first pick. The guy puts up great numbers.

2003 16 TDs 1700 total yards
2004 20 TDs 1900 total yards
2005 28TDs 2000 total yards

jspchief
07-30-2006, 04:30 PM
What about Manning?Conventional wisdom says the best RB in the league is more valuable than the best QB.

That being said, Manning is a fantasy stud, and he's probably been picked #1 in a lot of leagues.

Moooo
07-30-2006, 04:31 PM
LJ, Alexander, or Tomlinson. Flip a coin. They are clearly the top 3.

YOU TAKE LJ! Seriously, that away you avoid having to cheer for the performance of someone who isn't on your team!

Not only that, but you'll be able to WATCH your first pick make every yard. How many people can say that?

Moooo

07-30-2006, 04:39 PM
Yeah, Moooo... I think I'm goin' LJ. Maybe the homer in me.

07-30-2006, 04:42 PM
LJ...are you sure you want to do that. You don't want to have to worry who has the ball in their hands when the Chiefs play do you? Don't you just want to enjoy the game and not have the distractions.

07-30-2006, 04:47 PM
It's not like I'm playing the FFL for money, so it doesn't really "worry" me anyway. And I don't know that I could actively root for Manning -- because I ****ing HATE him. And I could give a shit about Alexander... and will I have to root for or against LT the two times we play him?

Top 4, right here:

LJ
SA
LT
Peyton

Honorable mention: Tiki

Honorable mention: TikiThe problem with taking a QB at #4 there are 16 picks before I choose again. The RBs will be completely depleted by then.

You have to take a RB first.

You must.

I say Rudi or Tiki

Rudi is very underrated, he's like the Trent Green of RBs.

OMG...Portis is the no-brainer at #4. Ole Al Saunders and Portis and all those great Washington receivers keeping defenses from stacking the box means a big year for Portis.

i'd go portis as well...maybe tiki because cbs favors yards pretty well.

Tiki Barber. The guy has hit 2,000 total yards the last 3 (?) years. He can also return punts and kicks, iirc.

So LJ, SA and Portis went in the first three?

Who took Portis ahead of Tomlinson?

Bowser
07-30-2006, 09:15 PM
Interesting.

Strangely, Hoover may be on to something. Tomlinson is going to face a ton of eight and nine guys in the box this year, and Portis is the latest guy to benefit from Al Saunders' playcalling. Ballsy, to be sure. But maybe quite a shrewd move.

Well I was #10 out of #12 and ended up with Brady and TO. Who did you get in the first 2 rounds?

Yeah, #4 pick is tough. My board shows Portis or Tiki there. I have 9th pick and planning on signing Rudi Johnson or Manning. You may want to surprise everyone and take Manning. He's the only QB worth taking in the 1st 3 rounds.

Bootlegged
07-31-2006, 07:15 AM
Ok - I'll post the lineup on both threads.

QB - Brees/Warner
RB- Tiki, Dunn, Tatum Bell, Duckett
WR- Steve Smith, D. Mason, McCardell
TE - Antonio Gates
K- Tynes
Def- Da Bears/Cowboys



Feel good about Tiki at 5, Smith in 2nd round, Gates and my D. Have depth at 2nd RB with Dunn, Bell, Duckett. Need a better 3rd WR. Brees/Warner are servicable with big potential upside.
