1.01 and 1.02 in Rookie Dynasty Draft
Posted 29 July 2011 - 03:03 PM
I need to know which 2 players you guys would take.
The main part of my current roster is:
QB: Matt Ryan
QB: Matt Stafford
RB: Ahmad Bradshaw
RB: Jahvid Best
RB: Michael Bush
RB: Tashard Choice
WR: Larry Fitzgerald
WR: Hakeem Nicks
WR: Mark Clayton
WR: Jordy Nelson
WR: Arrelious Benn
TE: Tony Gonzalez
TE: Tony Moeaki
Who do I take at 1.01 and 1.02 of my rookie draft? Obviously, I'm weaker at RB so my first reaction is too take Mark Ingram and Dan Thomas and shore up that RB spot. But what about guys like LeShoure and Helu at RB?
Also, are guys like AJ Green and Julio Jones simply too talented in a dynasty setting to pass on? I mean, even if it means being thin at WR this year, I don't want to pass on Green or Jones if they are indeed going to be superstars at WR in a year or two on the same tier as Calvin Johnson and T.O., as both are being compared to.
What do you guys think?
If you help me, I promise I will give a detailed answer to yours if you leave a link.

I'm not a fan of AJ Green (I don't think he's very good, and I don't like Andy Dalton). Julio Jones would probably be my #1 pick in a dynasty rookie draft, since his QB situation is a lot better & he was a better college player.
Even if Ingram ends up being an awesome NFL RB, because of all the options NO uses his upside is pretty much Pierre Thomas 2008/2009. Not bad, but I think AJ Green and Julio Jones have more upside and long term value. I'd pick up one of those guys and Daniel Thomas
I'd try trading back in the round if I were you. I'm not a huge believer in Thomas or Ingram. So trading your #1 pick, letting someone draft Ingram/Green, then picking Julio with your #2 pick seems like a good deal. That'd allow you to either get more picks later in the draft to get a guy like Helu, or get a player from another guy in the league to help you right now. Also consider drafting a tight end at some point.
