    I've got the #3 pick in my draft tonight..I'm assuming Foster and Peterson go first...what are your thoughts on #3? CJ Would be obvious but I'm afraid of his holdout and work load..would it be insane to take Ray Rice over him?

    not at all, rice is an awesome back with balance and power, and now he has vonta blocking for him(the guy that helped guys like steve slaton have a good year a few years ago) and the ravens line is better than the texans and look what foster did last year. i am predicting a huge year for rice

    I would take Rice at #3 assuming Peterson and Foster are gone. They lost McGahee and they added the best blocking FB in football in Leech. Yes they added Ricky Williams but I think they are going to finally feature Rice.

    I'd go with either Charles or Rice and be very happy about it.

    We just drew for positions and looks like I am third as well. It is a ppr league but I think I am still going to take Rice. He started out really slow last season, I dont think that is going to be the case this year. At least I hope not.

    If its PPR Ray Rice, if not i'd probably go Jamaal Charles because of upside.

    i would drop green ellis right now and pick up somebody with up side, or get woodhead.

    vareen,ridley,green ellis,woodhead- you wont know who is getting the ball from week to week

    You had a pretty good draft for someone asking for advice...

    I wouldn't have taken two quarterbacks.

    You can pick up a bye week QB the week of. Should have spent that roster spot on an extra WR or RB until Week 5. Then add a bye week QB and drop one of the lesser RBs/WRs, and then drop the QB after that week and add someone else.

    There are some BJGE fans out there, so I bet he could include him in a trade. Some people love the guy, and some sites still lable hima RB2 or RB3. I'm ind of with you though--NE more unpredictable than ever now.

    As for your QBs, it depends on how late you took Stafford on whether is was a burned pick. This guy has GIANT upside. If he starts out hot you could get some great value for him vs some waiver wire fodder. I would actually hold him through week 5...jmho. I guess if someone drops a great player, you may consider it, but Stafford has a lot of value imo.

    Good draft from the 3 spot.

    If the Cowboys offense goes off this year, you will be set.

    Real solid draft from the #3 spot. That's not bad at all.

    IF I had the number 3 pick i would go with Andre Johnson. Dude is a beast. Almost always is a bet for 100 catches and 1000 yards for a full season.
