Post Money league draft tonight --Pick #6
Who do you take? I'm leaning towards Rodgers. I'd prefer Ray Rice but he'll be gone. I think Rodgers over Mendenhall but perhaps not Charles? Thoughts?

I'd go Mendenhall. You can get a QB that'll put up similar numbers to Rodgers in the 2nd and possibly even 3rd but RBs go quick.

So you're in the camp of drafting two RBs right off the bat?

What about McCoy over Mendenhall?

Depends on your draft position and who's left ... but if there are similarly ranked RBs and QBs left on the board I think you have to go RB. They'll get snatched up quickly and you've got two slots to fill. Plus frickin' Matt Ryan is ranked *48th* in yahoo, for example ... that's round 4 ... and he's definitely a quality QB.

I personally think McCoy is ranked too high. The problem is Vick is going to end up taking away goal line points. He'll run it in himself whereas Mendenhall will get the rock at the goal line.

Not that it'll happen everytime ... but Vick is a better pick at 6 than McCoy, IMO ... he even had more rushing TDs than McCoy last year lol

I went with Ray Rice. Over Charles. Rodgers and Brady went in the top 5 so I had more options than I expected.

Snagged McFadden in round 2.

Definitely want a QB in the 3rd unless there is just someone too good at WR left or something ... sounds like you're having a nice draft so far though.

Well, this is a messed up draft. Now I have DeSean Jackson and Dwane Bowe (in addition to Gates). Still need a QB. Probably will wind up with Big Ben. Romo and Schaub stil on the board.

Had to go with Big Ben. Not thrilled with it. Nor Bowe or DeSean Jackson but their value made them too hard not to snag. Gates makes me nervous.

Think I got a steal with Brandon Marshall in round 7.

Ben had the most big plays last year of any QB, so that's got to be good.

Roster looks like this:

QB: Big Ben
RB: Ray Rice
RB: Darren McFadden
WR: Dwane Bowe
WR: DeSean Jackson
Flex (WR/RB): Brandon Marshall
TE: Antonio Gates
DEF: Ravens
K: Mason Crosby

B: Tim Hightower
B: Sam Bradford
B: A.J. Green
B: Pierre Garcon
B: Roy Williams (unintentional pick)
B: Rob Gronkowski
B: Danny Woodhead
B: Aaron Hernandez
B: Falcons defense

Overall I'm happy with my RBs/WRs (love the value with Marshall...if he can stay on the field). Really wanted more productive QBs. I think I'm going to flex in Hightower. I have him on two of my teams. I think he's an undervalued player. Thoughts?

I like Hightower, I was able to draft him in one of my leagues as my flex. Would've liked to get him in a couple other leagues but was taken before I was able. Everything I've read about him is good. I would say as long as he doesn't fumble he should have a really good season. As of right now you have some tough choices to make with your team untill bye weeks start playing there part.

I think my biggest question is Marshall vs. Hightower as a flex. My other bench guys are a pretty big downgrade from my starters. Bradford could (emphasis on "could") be inserted over Big Ben based on matchups. A.J. Green could be a steal for me if Palmer or Garrard end up starting.

With Marshall Vs. Hightower in the flex I think you've just got to make a week to week call. If Marshall was going up against the Jets defense and Hightower was going against, say the browns defense. I'd just keep my eye on the matchup and not get caught into thinking that one player has to be there.

Won week 1 by about 40.

Just looking for some advice for week 2.

Right now I have:

RB: Ray Rice vs. TEN
RB: Darren McFadden vs. BUF
WR: Dwayne Bowe vs. DET
WR: DeSean Jackson vs. ATL
WR/RB: Brandon Marshall vs. HOU

I'm considering benching Bowe (even though it's a favorable matchup and KC should be passing a lot), moving Marshall to WR and putting Hightower (vs. ARI) in at Flex. Bowe should bounce back but KC's offense rivaled our own last Sunday. Thoughts?

Oh, I'm also considering dropping Garcon and adding Devery Henderson; dropping Danny Woodhead and adding Jay Cutler. Bradford should be fine but my QB situation isn't all that stellar (currently starting Big Ben with Bradford on the bench. Ryan Fitzpatrick is on waivers as well.)

I'd probably get Hightower in there. He looked pretty good last week. And I would probably sit Bowe with as bad as the Chiefs looked, at least until they can show me something. Of course with Bowes potential, it makes it a little tough. Plus, Hightower will be playing the team that traded him away this offseason, so there may be a little added motivation for him.
