Already tired of Doug Martin. I lost with him last year and STILL drafted him this year. Would you make these moves?
IMO--not a RB. They seem to have shorter shelf life than I'd want in a first pick for keeper. I'd probably start with my franchise QB. I'd probably either go with Rogers--not but 30 with a lot of years left, or Luck--the best of the young guns whole will be elite very soon.

Keeper league--I'll take Darvish over Hamels. Beltre could be a Hall of Famer and is great. But, he's 35, and Carpenter is 28. I have no idea how many all star years Beltre has left, but I'm betting Carpenter will give you really good production at a position where it is hard to find production for a long time. If your team and standing is such that you are ready to trade for some talented youth, I'd think hard about side B. You might take a loss for the rest of this year, but...if you want need to grow younger and keep some great talent...
I inherited a dynasty team that finished about 10th our of 12 teams last year. I'm rebuilding. In my circumstances, I'd do what I needed to do to get Billy. They say that if he learns to take a walk, he'll be an MVP candidate. But, what do "they" know"
RBs like Arrington and Zac will get you more points than some of the higher ranked RB busts. And, you can get Ray Rice a couple of rounds later. He's no longer a 1st round pick, but he could put up solid RB2 numbers.
Draft the surest scorer on the board. In that position, I'd probably take the best WR available--Demarius Thomas if he's around-- and then take Drew or Aaron top of round 2...assuming Peyton is gone. If we blow one of our first two picks (and note that over the last two years, half or more of the 1st round RBs have been busts), then it's a long season.
