Non PPR, 12 team league.
I have the #4 pick and I need to prepare for the scenario in which Peterson, MJD, and Forte go in the top 3 (I will take any of these guys if they are available).
My 4 options and a quick analysis:
Turner: The consensus choice, but in many ways he was very pedestrian in terms of performance last year, but his overall numbers were great obviously because of his opportunities in general and specifically his red-zone touches. We have all heard about the 370-thing, but he is one of those guys that KUBIAK, which measures quality, has trouble with in terms of fantasy play. A guy can be average, but still be a great back.
Jackson: Has always been productive and St. Louis would seemingly have to improve a bit. Even though I am non-PPR, his receiving yards tend to be strong and there and there are no threats for decreased PT. The injury risk is big here.
Williams: A stud last year in every way, shape, and form. Initially, he was not an option for me here due to the Stewart threat. However, reports from Carolina indicated that Stewart may not be the threat to his carries that most perceived and he is banged up again.
Tomlinson: Rising fast on most everyone's cheat sheets thanks to a lot of positive vibe coming out of camp. Reports are that he has a lot left in the tank, but is that still true come week 8 or 9?
So, what think you?
