I think you have Trent a bit low, he should be right there with Morris IMO. You have Brady ridiculously too high, he's more in the low 30s with his weapons all being questionable, and definitely below Manning and Cam atm. I'd go with Steven Jackson ahead of MJD and Forte as well.

I personally think you have Rodgers and Brees too high as well, they should be in the 15-16 range I think, behind Jackson and just ahead of Forte, Marshall, Bryant, MJD.

Of course RB is so thin and QB is so deep this year I probably won't be touching one before the 6th/7th round myself.

I might quibble about the order of your RBs in the first round, but outside of McCoy I think most of the top 10 RB past ADP and Foster are fairly close.

Damn good answer.

That's the kind of constructive criticism I was looking for.

I would put Jimmy Graham at the 19 spot to replace Brady.

Keep Gronk on your radar. If he shows up healthy through camp / preseason he would be a top 20 guy. Also if Hernandez is out due to legal issues or league suspension that would up his stock.

re: Way too early top 20 (fantasy football)
I havea Calvin number 3 overall. I'd much rather have him than spiller or Charles. Im really high on gguys like Wilson this year. I'd rather take a couple of stud pass catchers and then take about 3 or 4 next tier rbs. I'drrather spend a 4th or 5th rounder on Wilson with Eli Manning at the helm than spiller in the top 5 overall with that shitty team.

LeSean McCoy is going be a great value if he falls to back half of the 1st.

Oh damn, that seems a bit low. I guess they're thinkin leshoure will get the goal line carries and Bush's numbers will come mostly from yards. I'd definitely like to have him in the 4th but I don't think he'll actually slide that far

Steven Jackson > Turner's year last year > Michael Turner. I think that's the thinking behind it.

Pretty much. Jackson had almost 1400 total yards last year for a completely garbage Rams offense that had a brutal schedule for facing rushing defenses. Turner never had less than 10 rushing TDs during his time as a Falcon. Given that Jackson is a hell of alot better than Turner and the Falcons will have an excellent offense next year, Jackson's floor as long as he stays healthy (a risk at his age of course, but he's been pretty steady) is about 1400 yards and 10 TDs. That's mid to late second round material by itself, but his upside is potentially 1700 total yards or so and 12-13 TDs.

The only thing that's been stopping Jackson from being a top 20 type player in recent seasons is the lack of TD chances since he played for the Rams, with consistent TD chances he'd have been up there already. He's definitely a guy I hope slips down to the early third round in my keeper league if I'm drafting there.

If that is his floor, he should be a top 5 pick.


I agree with your reasons why he may be good this year, but I would set the floor at 1100-1200yds and 7tds

Jackson hasn't had a season with less than 1350 total yards in the past 5 years, and only once in his entire career (and that was due to only playing 12 games due to injury). The Falcons run the ball at the goalline a ton and he'll be getting the carries. He's not a top 10 pick simply due to his age, but if he plays 15-16 games his floor is pretty much what I said. Hell, Turner got 10 TDs for the Falcons last year in only 222 carries, and he pretty much sucked all year.

If he gets over 250 carries he'll have at least 1300 yards.
