    Taking both backs ?

    I have been toying with the idea of drafting AP and Chester nr. 1 and 2. Does it make any sense to take both running backs in a "tandem" situation like that ?

    Or: Reggie Bush + Deuce McAllister ?

    It might be interesting. I am a Vikings fan (obviously
    :), so I kind of would like to do it.

    good idea ?

    No.
    First I hope "nr. 1 and 2." doesn't mean your first two picks, because unless everyone in the league has purple glasses they'll probably be available later.
    Horrible idea.

    Second,
    I think you'd rather start a guy that's not sharing the load like Stephen Jackson, LT, LJ, Frank Gore, or Shaun Alexander.
    Then pick whichever Viking your intuition tells you is going to have better numbers as the second back if you must.
    Don't do it stay neutral.

    Third, I would probably do it, because no matter how hard I try to tell myself to stay objective I always end up with at least 4 or 5 Vikings on my team.
    I think I kept T-Will for at least half the season last year, and BJ as well.

    I doubt either of those players should be drafted as anything but a #3 running back on your roster (though if you have one it doesn't hurt to get the other later if the load shifts)


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
