I'm praying someone takes Aaron Rodgers in first 3 picks but can't rely on that. My question is after the first 3 surefire RB picks who is next best PPR RB choice? I am gonna go RB so I'm leaning heavily towards Ryan Matthews. Any thoughts? DMC is more injury prone than Matthews, CJ2K is no longer focal point of Offense, and MJD has a LOT of tread on those tires.

if you are set on going RB with your pick, i would go with MJD or Ryan Matthews. Seems like every year we say MJD has a lot of tread and he just performs. Matthews isn't a sure bet either. There is a lot of upside though. Not a bad place to switch gears and go with Calvin though. Or Rodgers. For the value i would rather have Calvin or Rodgers over MJD/Matthews.

I love Megatron, had him last year but WR is so deep so I'm gonna hold off. Rodgers is so tempting too take but that leaves my RB1+RB2 left to the likes of Sproles, SJax, FJax, Bradshaw, D Martin, MAYBE Murray but highly doubtful. As oppose to Matthews, Sproles, Vick in first 3 rds, which is my current plan.

Calvin or Rodgers. Dont waste your time on one of those backs.

It really is a personal preference there and I don't think you win/lose your league with that decision. I think you consider Mathews, Rodgers, Megatron and CJ2k (I think he bounces back this year, though that is a gamble). MJD just keeps doing it, but he is starting to get in the scary zone for me. My gut would say take Rodgers/Megatron probably as the gap between the top 3 RBs and the next batch is decent sized so I might try to lock in a super stud with that pick and then look at RB later. Though I do hate missing out on a strong RB1, but hard to pass up Rodgers/Megatron.

I think you have to go Rodgers if those guys are all gone. I know QBs are deep this year, but this will give you the likely highest scoring player and you won't have to worry about which QB will outperform his ADP. If you can't have a top tier RB with your first pick, you might as well get the top QB. If you just get a tier 2 RB with the fourth overall selection, it's a waste of the pick IMHO.

Whichever back you like best out of MJD/Mathews/Chris Johnson/McFadden.

There is no way I'm taking a QB at #4 with how thin RB is.

It's MJD or Johnson.

Mathews? DMC? Not at #4, and not over either of those guys.

MJD has new offensive coordinator and disgruntled about contract so i'd take Matthews before him. My biggest dilemma is passing on Rodgers b/c he's such a stud

Dont pass on Rodgers, just dont do it. There is no doubt there. Draft him and you are in the playoffs before the first round is even over.

For shame that you are cheating on Peyton.

If Ray Rice doesn't sign his contract before the first week of August I'm taking Chris Johnson 3rd.
