Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
Assuming that AP, Turner, Forte and MJD are all drafted, who do you think at 5?
Williams: I'm skeptical about williams because of shared time with Stewart.
Jackson: Is the stand alone back in St. Louis and will be used in both running and receiving. Injuries are a concern.
Gore: Solo back in SF. Just not sold on him.
Since you have no faith in RB 5-8 and WR are off the board because no PPR (meaning no Fitz/Johnson/Moss) you COULD go for Brees and then catch a Jacobs/ Westbrook/ Slaton/ Johnson/ WR on the way back if the league is 10 or MAYBE 12....anything bigger and I think you need to take a RB there

If you're not high on WR in your league, then I would definitely go with a RB here and it should be DeAngelo or Steven Jackson...I personally would go DeAngelo here, but if Jackson can stay healthy then he is going to put up numbers as well...
DeAngelo. Sounds like Stewart's gonna be even more gimpy this season than he was last year. Even if he's does get healthy, I wouldn't worry too much. Stewart had 10 TDs last year and DWill still had 18 or 20 or something. Plus, I've always liked DeAngelo was a good back, even when that bum DeShaun Foster was getting all the carries for some unknown reason.
I had D. Williams rank 5th on my list and he fell to me at the 8th pick in my draft. I was thrilled to have him. I am not scared of two back rotation. Stewart is still hurt. Seems like most of the time a RB sits out most of the preseason the end up getting hurt again example S. Jackson and LT last year. But I did draft stewart in the 8th rd just in case.

I'm also skeptical b/c Williams put up monster numbers in the second half of last year. Something like 892 yards rushing, 15 touchdowns and two four-TD games. Can he really repeat that? If not, he drops dramatically in fantasy points and value.
Where as Jackson put up great numbers but was still out for 4 games. Imagine if he stays healthy?
