Thx. Yah, fitz is a no brainer.

No love for austin?

I was thinking either:

Fitz-austin-bradshaw. Or

Fitz-austin-gates. Thoughts?

I do love miles austin. And he was my 4th pick by a mile. Here is the thing, Dallas is full of weapons. RB, WR, TE, etc... I honestly think you wait to see what happens with DEZ. He is in trouble right now and he misses time I think it takes away from Austin. I believe DEZ is the best WR on dallas and he will help Austin get one on one which is where I think he excells.

As for San Diego, well they have a few problems. They lost their best WR in V-Jax. Gates NEEDS to carry the offense and you know Rivers has the utmost confidence in Gates and he will get you 10+ TD. I think San Diego will have to get the most out of gates this year and hopefully he stays healthy. 

Flip a coin man. I cant disagree with you on Austin. Gates and Austin will both produce. But you must go with FITZ and Ah-mad for SURE!

Easy. Vick, Bradshaw, Hillis. Maybe Larry Fitz but you will regret that  when Charles goes down and Hillis is the main man.

Stephen Jackson and Gates are intriguing but they seem too risky for my taste.

How old is Gates anyway?

Thanks for the input ...

Really?  Hillis ... I can probably draft Hillis in the 10th round ...  

Fitz for sure ...

Vick is risky ... he'll probably miss 4-6 games ... last year he had just as many picks as he did TDs .... but, perhaps I take one more chance with him ...

Is Bradshaw a legit RB1?  Still not convinced ... same problem with Steven Jackson ...

Gates could be the man in SD this year (assuming healthy) ...

Same with goes with Austin ...

Damn ... lots of "could be's" ... but no definites ... tough call ...

What type of league is this? Do you give up any draft picks for keeping any guys? When do you find out who everyone else is keeping? We need to know stuff like this. 

I personally don't think you will find Hillis in round 10. Keep in mind that most good RB's are going to be kept. So if it's a 10 team league and an average of 1.5 RB's are kept per team you already have 15 RB's off the board. Now you plan on Hillis falling that far? I don't see that happening. 

You should look at everyone's roster and guess who they will keep and then you will see what kind of value your own keepers will hold on draft day. 

Larry Fitz is going to be the top WR on the board if you let him go back into the draft pool. 

Vick, while having a garbage year last season, will hold some value when the likes of Brady, Rodgers, Brees, Stafford, Newton, perhaps Rivers, Romo, and others are already off the board. 

You maybe looking at Matt Ryan, Vick, Roethlisberger being the top choices at QB. 

If I had to choose 3 though I would say Fitz, Vick, and toss a coin between Bradshaw and SJax(I would lean SJax though). 

You should be able to find an undervalued TE in the draft. 

Just an idea to think about.

League is traditional scoring.  8 Teams.

Everybody submits their keepers on Aug 24.  Draft is a few days later.

Everybody keeps 3 guys.  You don't have to give up any draft picks to keep players.

I'm drafting 4th.  Non-snake draft.

Wipe out the top 24 guys available in most rankings and for the most part that will be everybody's keepers ... 

So, I'm just trying to decide amongst what I have ...

I'm leaning Fitz, Vick, and Austin right now ... I think.

You keep Vick, Fitz, and Austin, you may as well quit this league now.

Bradshaw is poised to have a breakout season.

REMEMBER. Receivers are only as good as the guy throwing them the ball..............

Arizona will be awful again. Don't put too much stock in Romo a storied loser.

Good Rbs are hard to come by. There's always that guy getting receptions because the stud is drawing attention. No such luxury with running backs.

I tend to agree with slik on keeping a RB. You should be able to draft a decent WR with your second pick(the other RB should be your first choice) as the position is so deep.

Thanks for the input, guys...

What if I went Bradshaw, S Jackson, and Fitz ???

OR, is it worth it to keep Vick and hope he has a bounce back year (he was brutal last year between his inconsistency (picks) and injuries) ... I can easily see this happening again.

That being said, the 3 guys ahead of me in the draft are almost for sure gonna keep QBs ... I can easily get Vick with my first pick (or better) ... or, wait until later rounds to draft a suitable QB.

Additional thoughts?

If you realistically think you can get Vick back at 4 then by all means keep the two RB's and Fitz. I see nothing wrong with that. Who knows maybe you are able to upgrade at QB if someone throws a decent one back into the pool. 

Maybe you can get another RB with your first pick and look to trade one RB and Vick for an even better QB. 

Just floating ideas.

I don't mind the sound of

Bradshaw, Jackson, Fitz as you said.

I think you gotta go Bradshaw. Like I said before. This guy if healthy is poised for a monster year.

Vick, Bradshaw, Fitz...and you have the core of your team established.  There there is no pressure to have to pick a player for a certain position.

Then with your fourth pick you can get Austin / Jackson.

Myself I would look at a RB with your 4th pick if there is a good one there.

Best of luck!

Thanks for all the feedback guys.

So, it looks like Austin already tweeked his hammy in camp (the injury that made him miss a lot of last year) ... because of this, I'm thinkin' this guy is not gonna be a keeper.

And, apparently Gates looks amazing in camp ...

So, for now, I'm leaning Fitz-Bradshaw (my 2 for sures) and Gates.

Vick, Jackson, and Austin are on the "maybe" list.

We'll see what happens between now and keeper submission day though ... anything can happen...

Bradshaw is troublesome to me. Teams don't usually draft a running back in the first round(David Wilson) to be an understudy. Starter or not, Bradshaw is going to lose carries to this guy. I'd rather keep Austin than him.

It's boiling down to keeper submission day ... any add'l input on who I should keep??  These are my optoins:

Vick
Steven jackson
Ahmad Bradshaw
Gates
Larry Fitz
Miles Austin
Reggie wayne
Peyton hillis

Given that Austin and Vick already got hurt I'm leaning against them.  I suppose Bradshaw got hurt too but it's nothing serious. 

I'm thinking either:

FITZ-JACKSON-BRADSHAW ... or

FITZ-JACKSON-GATES

Thoughts?

Fitz and Jackson for sure and I'd probably go Gates as of right now.  SD is banged up and we already know Rivers loves Gates so as long as he's healthy should be due for another big year.

I can't believe someone actually said to not keep Fitz...
