Dynasty pick #2

Today it was time for me to make my second pick in this startup Dynasty Draft. Already in this league the young and productive impact players without issues are dwindling down, and with a QB taken in the First Round (Cam Newton), the two young, stud TEs (Graham and Gronk) gone, and a ton of good WRs still on the board, I wanted to lock up a RB I can hang my hat on.

Of course, the RB depth falls off a cliff quickly, even in 2012 redraft leagues this year, so finding a great back even 20 or so picks in isn’t that easy these days.

My choice was down to Matt Forte and Adrian Peterson. Forte would appear to be the safer choice, based on his health, but he’s got some issues for 2012 and for the long-term. The Bears aren’t paying Michael Bush the type of money they are (four-year deal worth $14 million, including $7 million guaranteed) to just be a backup, so I would imagine he will play a lot and cut into Forte’s production.

  • The DFS Virgin “Week 1″ September 11, 2015
    And here we are. Week One. Thursday Night Football. A damp, fall-like evening in the Northeast. The perfect evening to kickoff the NFL’s 50th SuperBowl Season. I’m not going to lie, I have some butterflies in my belly. Maybe it’s because I just deposited $500 into an account at FantasyFued.com. Maybe it’s because I never […]
