    Re: Fantasy First Pick

    Well, since it's a keeper league, you'll probably have to tell us who is available...

    AP > CJ.

    AP has better O-line, better defense, plays indoors, is proven for 3 years straight.

    Of those players I'd take Schaub. He has the most value.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I'd take CJ all day over AP. AP has shown to be a bit injury & fumble prone and has Favre coming back which will take away potential carries. CJ has Vince Young as a QB, so he will get a lot more carries then AP. But like a previous poster said, since a keeper league we would need to know which players are already frozen by the other owners.

    Re: Fantasy First Pick

    If Ray Rice is available, I'd take him. I think he'll end up being the #1 player for the year.

    This is who I took with my first pick. I even got him at #5!! I agree that Rice or CJ will be the #1 player this year.

    How are those the best options when you only have one keeper? 30 team league?

    Is Carson Palmer already froze? I think he is going to have a monster year.

    Re: Fantasy First Pick

    I took Aaron Rodgers. I was the 4th pick but two of the top quarterbacks were off the board already.

    I didn't feel Chris Johnson would have nearly as good as season and Adrian Petersen tends to get hurt and fumble. I didn't think either were bad running backs just felt I could get better value later at the running back position.

    CJ has been good for only a year. I'll take a guy who's been good for 3 years straight anyday over a 1 year wonder. Not to mention Vikes get to play indoors.
