12 teams 15 position snake draft

1QB, 2WR, 2RB, 1TE, 1-Flex WR/RB/TE, 1K, 1D, 6-TD all, 1-10, 0.5 PPR, 1-25 QB and Return yards are the same.

I have 1st pick in my draft and based on the mocks I have been doing if I go Foster or Rice 1st by 2nd and 3rd I get a good WR and 2nd solid RB. The RB is either Sproles, S-Jax, Bush, Fred Jackson. I like Fred Jackson if Sproles is gone but he is bye week 8 as well as my 1st pick at RB do you think that really matters?

4th-5th I have to grab a QB here and it comes down to Ryan, P Manning, Rivers, Romo. I have been leaning toward Ryan.

Your thoughts would be appreciated as my draft is Sunday.

i'm in the same position and i agree with your thinking. if those rbs are on the board when your 2nd and 3rd picks come around, i like sproles of the group. sjax is solid but i worry about the wear, fjax is 30, so, caveat emptor!bush has that stench of usc on him although he'd be a good choice too.

i too would lean toward ryan, rivers, peyton and romo in that order. the dallas wrs injuries, and witten's splees turn me off to romo. sorta concerned about manning's neck.

Thanks for your input. I like Sproles first and then SJax as he is the main focal point of that team. I had Fred last year and he did great until he got hurt of course.

Every once in awhile Eli is still on the board and I take him over Ryan? Do think I should stay with Ryan? Julio and White are going early and then there is Cruz and Nicks on the other side.

Not sure I could take Sproles over Jackson. Sproles splits time, but still gets double the receptions of Jackson. Yet it will be the rushing yardage that would have me look Jackson. I would think there should still be some quality WRs available coming back at the end of round 2. I would target Julio Jones if he is still there. In the 3rd, Bradshaw might still be there as well. See how it plays out. Good luck.

Jackson was all world till he got hurt...but he's aging so it's a risk either way.

Throwball, the FFS Draft Analyzer says Sproles is ahead of DMAC, Fred, Murray, Bush, Matthews, SJAX, Bradshaw, JC, AP.

Matt Ryan over Payton, Romo, Rivers, Eli, Shaub, Big Ben

I drafted last night and Sproles got picked 17th right before my 18th pick (2nd rd), which kind of surprised me because I was getting ready to grab him (Cam right before hiim), due to the picks previous and how he fit into my cheat sheet and what was taken already.

I let out a huge explitive when he was taken right ahead of me. Since there was no top 5 QB, I took J. Graham. Hopefully he will suffice.

David have you confirmed the scoring is set correctly? That doesn't sound correct to me. Even just glancing at an ADP based on PPR it doesn't look right as DMC is a top 5 RB for PPR.

The DA has DMC has the #10 RB in my PPR league, behind both Sproles (#6) and Bush (#8).

Yes I have checked and rechecked. Sproles did great last year in PPR and Run DMC was out with injury surprise surprise.
