    Decided to help get some football talking going (as if there isn't enough or we need a reason to) I would try to put out a football poll question once a week or so. This week relates to fantasy football.


    If you get first pick in your draft, who do you take?


    Personally, I'm going with Adrian Peterson. I think his consistency is what I like most.

    I should add, if you picked other, please indicate who you'd take.

    I am taking a QB. Either Manning, Brees or Brady. No doubt.

    The league I play in is so quarterback point heavy that if you don't take one in the first round, you've basically screwed your season.

    Chris Johnson is "overrated" fantasy wise. He isn't going to match his numbers from last year.

    It all depends on the league. Some leagues are TD's only (dumb) and in that case you take a QB. Others reward RB's more. In my league you have to take a RB #1 and I would take AP.

    We have RB/WR TDs worth 6 and QB passing TDs worth 3 so in our league a RB is best to take first.

    Manning. Then Brees. Then Brady if his receivers are all back.

    I've got the number 8 pick in our league and have been participating in mock drafts everyday trying different scenarios. I'd pretty much made up my mind that I would take either a WR (Johnson) or QB with my first pick. In almost every case with the mock drafts the rest of the team suffered when I did this. My best results have come repeatedly from taking 2 RBs with my first two picks. Might also consider RB and a QB with the second.

    I'm lucky, because of the keeper rules in my league, I will get ray rice for a 5th round pick this year.

    It generally doesn't matter whether I take a RB or a QB first - I will generally end up middle of the pack in my league, struggling to make the playoffs.
