basic scoring leagues usually have yardage dont they? Ive never been in one that didnt. If LT is gone Id probably take Manning, might get less pts for tds but he will throw more

LT should be the concensus #1 overall choice so if he's there, get him!

If your league gives 6 points for TD passes and 1 point for 25-35 yds passing, then Peyton Manning should be your choice. Otherwise, the first four players taken are usually: LT, PM, Shaun Alexander and Priest Holmes. Some put Edgerrin James in this list too. I don't think you can go wrong with any of these guys as your pick, IMO.

Alexander before Manning

Correction: Alexander, Holmes, James, Dillon, and maybe even McGahee before Manning. If LT goes #1, Alexander is your pick.

Especially in a 16-team league, you must grab an elite running back early. If your next pick isn't until #31, you're going to be sifting through the likes of Steven Jackson, Lamont Jordan, and Ronnie Brown if you're lucky. The top of the second tier of QBs will be available when you pick at #34, and some of that tier may still be available at #63.
