I'm up again in the 3rd round of my rookie Dynasty draft.

My team looks like this currently:

QB- Carson Palmer, David Garrard, Jeff Garcia
RB- Frank Gore, Beanie Wells, Kevin Smith, Willie Parker, Ahmad Bradshaw
WR- Calvin Johnson, Braylon Edwards, Vincent Jackson, Donald Driver, Devin Hester
TE- Antonio Gates, Donald Lee
K- Josh Brown, Ryan Longwell
DL- Ty Warren, Elvis Dumervill
DB- Antonio Cromartie, Brian Williams, Eric Wright
LB- Nick Barnett, Julian Peterson, Adalius Thomas, Channing Crowder

That said, the scoring is very heavy for WR (PPR), very low scoring for QBs.

My options right now are: Josh Freeman, Kenny Britt, Brian Orakpo, James Davis.

Who would you take, and why? I'm leaning toward Freeman simply because my QB options aren't great. I tried trading for Cassel, but the guy wanted Garrard, Beanie and my 3rd rounder. No way.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

If the scoring is low for QBs... I don't know if I would be concerned much with Freeman. Obviously, it's a move for the future... but who knows if that's the best option for you considering you'll have other QB options in next year's draft.

What are the RB options? Gore always has injury concerns... Bradshaw is depth... never can have too many RB options.

What about Earl Bennett (WR - CHI)... maybe his value picks up with Cutler. If you're tied to one of the guys you listed, I think I like Britt's upside in TN.

It's just a rookie draft so Earl Bennett isn't eligible.

I could go with Glen Coffee to handcuff Gore.

Ahhh, ok - didn't know if it was a Rookie/FA draft. Handcuffing Gore could be wise, Coffee has good size, nice ability and could do well. You have great options at WR, so taking this handcuff could be wise since Gore is your lead dog.

I ended up taking James Davis. I think his upside is huge.

Could be a great pick... will be interesting to see what happens in CLE.
