#10 AND #11 picks in a 10-team non PPM league. (My dolt son drew #1)

I am leanig towards two RBs from these who should be there (please do not tell Russ I may ignore his advice on Calvin):








Who would rank as the top two at 10/11?

I have taken Calvin in a few mocks, and just does not seem to work out as I end up with some injury-prone or non-proven RBs in Rounds 3 and 4.

(Bell, Lamar, CJ, Murray, McCoy, McFadden)

Thanks to all.
QB: Brees/Rivers

I would only take Calvin in the first round in PPR.

I would take Lynch, Ridley, or Morris out of that group if it's not a PPR league.

I have real reservations about McCoy this year. You can't tell me that the Eagles are that much different than last year and we all know what a horrible year he had.

So, we are too believe the Kelly's new offense will make a star out of McCoy once again? I ain't buying it and I am staying away from McCoy unless it's PPR.

Miller is another one that I question. Bush could barely run behind that awful line last year and he is way more talented then Miller is. In fact, you can make an argument that the Dolphin's o-line is much weaker than it was last season.

Forget Forte. He most likey will get a lingering sore hammy and be useless most of the season.

MJD might not have much left and is injury prone as well.

Agree with James, I would take Lynch, Morris or if for some reason a higher ranked RB falls to you grab him. More than likely someone else is going to grab Calvin early and a QB or 2. So you might have more to choice from than you think. One of the advantages of drafting late.

I have to admit that I am in the Lynch, Morris, Ridley bandwagon. I dont like who I am seeing in mocks at the end of the 2nd top of the 3rd so far. I have the number two spot and wish I could swap with someone.
