Draft tonight who to pick D.Mcfadden or M. Forte? BEST ANSWER 10 POINTS?
Asked: Draft tonight who to pick D.Mcfadden or M. Forte? BEST ANSWER 10 POINTS?
In a standard 10 team snake fantasy football draft scoring is favoring QBs and we start 2 QBs. I know WR and QB are deep and runningback is not. I have the 10th pick and I traded the 11th so my picks are 10 27 30 31 34 51 etc. I need to pick RB for this year I was thinking of Mcfadden he has the job to himself and he is a beast but will he be healthy? Matt Forte will be getting his goal line carries taking away from M.Bush just like Mcfadden last year. WHO SHOULD I TAKE ? IF ANYONE ELSE YOU THINK LIKE M.LYNCH EXPLAIN WHY! I WILL RATE AND VOTE BEST ANSWER 10 POINTS ! THANKS FOR HELP DRAFT TONIGHT AND MONEY LEAGUE SO IT MATTERS BIG TIME!
How about I throw this curveball at you: don't take a running back. You're not going to get one of the three stud RB's and this is a TWO QUARTERBACK LEAGUE! Quarterbacks are going to fly off the board much quicker than you might think. Matthew Stafford looks like a number 15-20 pick to you in a standard league, but when there's two QB's, he might be the top 5. Quarterbacks outscore every other position nearly every week, so why would you go running back first? Especially when you're looking at McFadden.
I've played for three seasons, two of which I won the championship. The only season I didn't win was when I waited on my quarterback until after the 1st round. If you can't get a consistent number one at QB, you won't go anywhere.
I've done tons of mocks where the format was two quarterbacks and I always found that WR's and RB's have less value in these leagues, therefore they fall down on the draft board. Heck, you might even get a Matt Forte or Marshawn Lynch at 27!
Recapping my rant, take a QB at number 10. You will have 4 of 7 picks between 27 and 34 to take a running back, a receiver, your second QB, and then the rest is up to you. If you have two very good quarterbacks and sit at the top of standings into October, you're going to get trade offers for some of your QB's who guys desperate for a push. Guess what? They'll most likely overpay, or you can force them into overpaying.
I wanted forte up until last night. I had no idea bush was going to be that much of a factor in the bears running game. He had every goal line carry. So now I would rather McFadden despite the injury worry. The thin is if you take McFadden you had to take a solid guy like MJD or maybe even forte in case he gets hurt, but since you are in a two qb league you probably shouldn't. If you decide to get both mcfadden and forte or Mjd then you must get two qbs in the 3rd and 4th. Since its two qb league stafford and newton will probably be gone and if they are definitely take 2 running backs and then get someone like Matt Ryan and phillip rivers with your next two picks. But If stafford or newton are there I would get forte then whichever one is there.
Assuming AP, CJ and Richardson are all taken…I'd Forte just slightly over Run DMC. Although Forte got hurt last year, he's proven he can handle a full workload, while McFadden really hasn't…so even though he's the clear-cut #1…he'll still need to be spelled from time to time. Of course they're both somewhat of an injury risk, but McFadden runs into all sorts of nicks that cause him to miss time.
If AP is available (because of injury scare), I'd pick him instead. No one heals like AP, so there's no reason to believe he won't be back to his normal self…and in MIN's horrible offense, he'll do it all again…and then some.
I doubt CJ would drop to 10, since he's a popular riser pick…but in off-chance he is, definitely CJ over McFadden or Forte.
And if Richardson is available, he'd be my 3rd choice behind AP and CJ…before DMC or Forte.
Forte but you might want to get Matthew Stafford or Cam Newton if they are there, then get another QB like Rivers or Ryan
