Dynasty pick #3

I was getting set to head out for the day Saturday and noticed I was up for my 3rd pick in this startup Dynasty League draft. I did not take a lot of time making my pick, but I liked my pick of Wes Welker. I seriously considered Greg Jennings, who I love, but Jennings has never even caught more than 80 passes in a season and has actually had more injury issues than Welker over the last five years.

If a team wants to attempt a two-point conversion, the ball […]
