Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

I like the idea of picking 5th or 6th. If you do that you are sure to get both a top WR or RB or an elite QB in the 2nd round if you go that route. And Gronk could even slip down to you in round 2.

I wouldn't be aiming at either of those guys. Coleman will probably beat out or at least split time with Freeman, and McFadden will likely lose out to Randle. I'd go for a guy like David Cobb first to tell you the truth.

I wouldn't take Brady until the 7-8th round, if you take him you have to draft a good backup and I think it hamstrings your team. Bradys stats have been on the decline and outside of Gronk he has no elite weapons. Plenty of other QB's you can get in the 5th or 6th round that are better and not sitting out 4 games.

I would probably go Antonio Brown, but if you want a RB Lynch or Bell would be good. Best thing to do is rate your players 1-5 and take the best one on the board- who knows your #1 guy might still be there.
Picking #5 is good, I don't see a sure fire #1 guy who is head and shoulders above the others, you can just wait and see who drops to you.

If he looks good in preseason and you have an open WR slot late in a deep draft, what the heck- good upside and late in drafts you are better off gambling on upside then taking a boring veteran type.

Yes you do that trade, Megatron still better but not by that much and you can get a great WR or RB with your 2nd round pick. Wouldn't do it for the 4th rounder.

In PPR you have to go Spiller, with Thomas and Graham gone he will get a lot of touches for the Saints and he is a great back on turf. Hyde is a decent power back but the Niners don't look good this year and he won't do much in the passing game

If the guy is looking to win this year he will likely take Forte and Calvin plus Cam. Luck is great but if you can grab Forte and Calvin you do it. Building for the future is nice, but I always look to win in the current year and let the keepers take care of themselves.

Anderson. Forsett will have his moments but Anderson is the better back and Denver will run more this year as Manning is all but done. Yes, shocking to hear, but if you watched the 2nd half of last year you can see he is no longer an elite QB, though he will still put up good numbers.

Yeah, I'd go for a 3 or a 4. Gronk is a monster obviously but your WR's are weak and Wilson is just an avg QB in a 10 team league. Johnson is no longer a WR1 and the Jets issues are well documented, Fitz is nearly done also. bell is great but he is suspended for 3 games, Morris is just average and your bench players have no upside.

I don't like T Smith either, and you are weak at TE as Daniels is aging and injury prone. But your RB's and WR's are very solid and you have upside at QB.

I would go with Evans, TB will have better QB play this year and Evans has way more upside than Benjamin, who reported to camp overweight this summer.
