Draft and Trade Talk Message Board

I'd take Sproles as well. I'd probably start Sproles and Spiller and I'd also consider making that trade after watching him run this week. I wouldn't rush into that trade though.
Please help me choose four starters: 2RB, 1WR, 1RB/WR
Zac Stacy vs DAL
Le'Veon Bell @CAR
Knile Davis @MIA
Jeremy Hill vs TEN
Keenan Allen @BUF
Michael Floyd vs SF
Rueben Randle vs HOU
I'm thinking Stacy, Bell and Davis with Allen. Lots of "perts" saying to start Hill though in a game that CIN should dominate? Plus, SF's D has been getting beaten through the air... not sure of ARI's QB situation tho.

That's a good point as well. Plus, Richardson, while totally worthless, doesn't seem to get injured very often so he'll be a thorn in the side all year long. I think I'm with ya... Hill's the way to go.

Interesting... I'm on board with your rankings. So, all things being equal, you'd prefer Hill over Bradshaw? I've been going back and forth between these two guys all day. I can't decide! I think part of the reason that I like Bradshaw is that I hate Richardson and think that the Colts will have to accept this season that the effed up when they traded for Richardson. I had him last year and he was just so bad.
If I go WR, I think Lee, Britt or Jones is the best bet but if I go RB I think Hill, Grimes or Bradshaw are the best bets?
Who would you guys pick? Who is your top 5?

Did I eff that up? Should've been Littering and? Littering and? ...dammit. That's the last time I post a lame joke!

Had him last year but it definitely felt like his early success was an outlier to me and that his mediocre numbers from later in the season were truer to what we can expect but that's just me. Obviously a biased opinion after last season.

Interesting... I hadn't heard that but I'm not too stressed about that. The Seattle D pickup was more a result of me hitting that point in the draft where I just wasn't sure which direction to take and I was on the end of the snake taking 2 players at a time.
It's true that Gerhart is a strong backup RB to have on my bench. Can't believe he fell to me when he did but I'm surprised by the dislike of Stacy. I'm a little biased since I picked him up 1/2 way through last year. All I remember is him tearing through defenses like a hot knife through butter on a run-first team and basically being used as their feature back but the glasses are rose-colored for me right now. Anything specific that I should keep an eye out for?
