    I didn't want to start one of these, but I needed some help.
    I'm in a 10-team, 5-player keeper (no more than two at one position) draft. Since my team sucked, I only kept three, which meant I got to predraft two players.
    I took Miles Austin with my first pick because the guy who predrafted in front of me took Beanie Wells, so he has to take a WR, as does the guy who picks in front of me in the final round of the predraft.
    After that confusing mess, I'm in a spot where I can draft either an RB or TE.
    Best available TE (provided he doesn't get taken) is Antonio Gates.
    Basically all the top RBs are gone (predrafters cannot take rookies), so I'm looking at: Ronnie Brown, Jamaal Charles, Thomas Jones, Pierre Thomas, Reggie Bush, Joseph Addai and Marion Barber.
    There is one more predraft position after I choose, then the real draft starts. I pick third and I want to take Ryan Matthews, but I have a feeling he'll be gone.
  2. Yeesh, not a lot to grab at RB, but I'd take Addai in that Colts offense. I know Donald Brown will steal much of his thunder, but Addai's still good for 8-10 TDs and over 1,000 yards from scrimmage.

    Don't know what's still out there at TE, but I'd venture that there's at least one available that will put up top 15 stats at the position.
  3. Rhody, if I were you, I'd pick up a stud like Maurice Clarett or Lawrence Phillips.

    By the way, you know the people drafting ahead of you also read this message board ;D

    Charles is getting a lot of pub this season, I think he may be the fit. I'm not sold on Addai anymore, Brown is going to take the load this season.

    Of that group, I like Charles. But depending on your RB situation, Gates could work great too.

    Amazed Miles Austin wasn't kept. What receivers did the guy who had Austin keep?

    Anyway, we need to see your entire roster. Who are your other three players?

    Um, not to steal Rhody's Thunder, but if someone starts a league on here can someone shoot me a message on facebook? I try to get on the site everyday but I'm going to be crazy busy with our store's remodel for the next couple of weeks.
