    fantasy football

    I would take a wide receiver - there are PLENTY of running backs available (they're a dime-a-dozen during the season). Take someone like Moss, Harrison...

    FANTASY FOOTBALL QUESTION????

    Running back unless you are near the bottom of the 1st round, then take a WR like Moss, or take a QB like Manning or Vick.

    FANTASY FOOTBALL QUESTION????

    I would Take a RB, if you are near the bottom get a good QB, but don't get Vick! there is a very high chance of him getting hurt again, I believe that Yahoo ranked Culpepper the highest out of QB's. And there is a forum on here some where stating reasons pep would be better than Vick for your fantasy team.

    FANTASY FOOTBALL QUESTION????

    Depends on the scoring system. I usually go RB first no matter what the system is and try to get 2 studs and a maybe. I have been lucky and my maybes have turned into trade bait later in the year to upgrade my WR. The way I pick running backs the last few years I feel like Shannahan!! (I hope it keeps up)
    The truth? You can t handle the truth!!

    FANTASY FOOTBALL QUESTION????

    It really depends on how the scoring system in your league is set up...how many pts. for TDs, yardage gained, maybe bonus pts. for long plays, etc.

    USUALLY - You'll take a RB for the reasons stated. There are 7-8 top RBs in terms of FFL scoring, and then there is a fairly dramatic drop in production between that top group and the next echelon. Similarly with WRs, there are a very small group of 3-6 WRs who are head and shoulders above everyone else. Same with the QBs...a handful are much better than the rest. It depends on how many teams there are in your league, what draft pick you have, when your 2nd and 3rd picks are, etc.

    Priest Holmes will probably be among the top 4 or 5 players selected in any FFL, so if you don't have a pick that high there is a great chance he will already be gone. Of course, there are always new stars that will have great seasons that few predicted, and established stars that will flop. I'd say the top echelon at the major positions are:

    RB - Tomlinson, Holmes, Portis, Green, McAllister, Alexander, Lewis (if legal problems don't sideline him)

    WR - R. Moss, Harrison, Owens, Holt

    QB - Manning, Culpepper, Favre

    Note that in a scoring system that gives bonus points for long TDs, Randy Moss could wind up being a top 5 pick.
    SKOL VIKINGS!

    FANTASY FOOTBALL QUESTION????

    It depends on how the league scores points, but I would try to get a RB first, then QB and then a WR. In the leagues that I have played in, RBs get the most points and WRs have a hard time getting a lot of points unless they score TDs.

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!
