Draft and Trade Talk Message Board
So I have the 2nd pick in the first round. All 12 teams have 2 keepers. My 2 are Arian Foster and Marshawn Lynch. Normal scoring applies. Who would you pick and why? Here is who is left:
Start 1 qb, 2 rb, 2 wr, te, flex
alfred morris will be in a time share with roy helu jr go and research their offensive snaps last year… antonio brown had 100 receptions but without emmanuel sanders defenses can focus more on him…. gronk won't be healthy at all.. spiller is on the trade block and will lose red zone carries to fjax…. reggie is a RB#2…. peyton spreads the ball around too much julius will have too many games with less than 10 points… the packers will give you 40 million reasons to take jordy nelson so do it

Pretty much everything you said isn't valid. Well, maybe Bush being an RB2, although that's not really a negative. (To be fair, he was in the top 10 RBs for ppg last season.)
I'll give you a chance to make it right. Just name 100 of the 40 million reasons to take Jordy. Don't include any BS like you did here though.
Morris/Helu in a timeshare? Unless you referring to real estate here, I just don;t know what to say here.
Brown being focused on more? Pretty sure he's been the focus for a while now. Just because you don't know who the other WRs are doesn't mean defenses don't have to cover them. Brown and Sanders were "never-heard-of-them-before" WRS once too. I guess Lance Moore and DHB don't really exist either.
Gronk won't be healthy at all? So you're a doctor and a Realtor? Even if he only plays half a season, he's worth having on your roster.
Trade Spiller? Reports today are that Spiller isn't on the trade block. Losing carries to Jackson isn't news.
Julius not getting the ball/pts? Thomas is valuable because Manning does spread the ball so much. I guess you don't understand the value of TE scoring. He average almost 11 ppg last season with Davis close behind him and only Graham and Gronk ahead. You are concerned over him not scoring over 10 points, yet all other TEs outside these four average less than 9 ppg.
I would take Morris. Put him as your flex starter. He'd be worth more weekly points than any 3rd WR you could get, 12-15ppg vs 8-10 for a wr. Having DJax and Garcon stretching the field, Morris should get more running room. He's already put up 2 good seasons very quietly and can churn out some great seasons, especially in that weak East defense.
