12 person league if i do get the overall pick im highly considering going this route.  he in a tier of his own in terms of WRS and nothing suggests he wont continue to dominate.  buck the trend of RBS theres only 1 megatron

what do you think of this move

not the worst idea ever, wouldnt be shocked if 1 of the top rbs gets injured. i would have went arod if i had picked 1st...settled for brady at 4. ly took jamal charles at 5- howd that work out? rb is roulette imo

The Madden Curse would have me nervous being a Megatron owner this year.

 You do know he slumped for 5 straight games last year. Not familiar with your league rules, I'd have to go with Rodgers or an "ELITE 3" RB instead. Rodgers won't string bad games together.           gl

I agree w/ Mischkin.  Calvin should go no higher than 4th, probably no higher than 5th, in any league

Truth be told, there are plenty of questions at RB after Foster.  MJD hold out.  Vick is never healthy so that could affect McCoy.  AP coming back from injury.  At least there is depth at WR.  I'd take A. Foster.

#1 u have to take rodgers or brady imo... RBs are too questionable foster gets nicked up and has a good back up in ben tate... i have megatron at #7 on my board... and i LOVE me some megatron but in fantasy it makes sense to get a top 3 qb or top 3 rb before the #1 wr...

my top 10 is as follows

1 rodgers
2 brady
3 rice
4 foster 
5 brees
6 mccoy 
7 megatron
8 cj2k
9 mjd
10 fitzgerald

in ppr league id probably rate mccoy as 5 and brees as 6

you're nuts if you take megatron before a top RB

ok so first round pick I think youre okay...

but first pick of the draft I would probably take a top RB or QB as they are in a tier of their own also

I got him 8th today in a QB heavy league.  Rodgers, Brady, Brees, Stafford, Rice, Foster, McCoy taken ahead.

Gotta take one of the big 3 running backs if possible.  Receiver is deep, running backs are shallow.  I wont own Megatron in any league that Im in this year because I would never pick him as high as he is going.
