Hey, my fantasy football team is starting in 2 hours, I got the 2nd pick of the draft.. This is my first FF draft so I'm sort of shooting aimlessly here, havent done any research so you can guess who'll be in last place :D..Anyone got good tips???

Nah, Going to stay away from Ricky.. Dont want to jinx him.. I'm lookig to maybe trade down and get Holmes or Faulk.. Guy picking #1 is choosing LT..

I always try and take 2 RBs to start. Stud RBs are invalueable. You can find plenty of WRs in later rounds

Mee, where do you think Stephen Davis will land?? Picking 2nd in draft, i could get Ricky or LT but in round 2, I got the 2nd to last pick and many RB's will be gone.. Will Stephen Davis be there at 19th pick??

I likely will take Ricky, I'd be the laughing stock of the FF league if I didnt..:lol:

Yeah, I think Davis will be there also. I'd say late 2nd to early 3rd is where I'd look for Davis to go in most of the drafts. The player I am hoping really slips is Dillon. Everything I've read shows his ranking in the low 20s. If he is available in the early third I'd jump all over it.

I think Davis is an EXCELLENT pick this year, BTW.

Mee, are you considering me take 3 RB's with first 3 picks???

Another good 2nd pickup this year should be William Green. 2nd year RBs tend to finally get in the swing of things with full mini camps and training camps under their belts... alot of guys miss time due to the trendy holdout crap that goes on.

The Browns have shown a committment to Green and the run, and I really think this kid could crack the top 15 this year, and can be snagged in the third round in alot of leagues.

Ricky or LT??? The first pick in draft went towards Clinton Portis..

I picked 3 RBs in the first 3 rounds last year but normally I wouldn't. Last year was an exception b/c I got Fred Taylor late in the third. But if it works out that way I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger.

Don't reach for a RB just to take one ... last year I had Taylor rated prety high.
