I am pretty sure the guy with #1 spot wants a QB and is gonna take Brees. I am
in #4 spot and just hoping this is true for one of the top 3 to fall to me.
If it does not and top 3 go I am left with question of CJ vs Forte. Its a .5 ppr
and 6 pt td's across the board for position. I do not wanna go qb as I think I can get Stafford in rd 2 or
at least pull Matt Ryan in 4th rd since the hype train has elevated him. DMC is
such an injury risk it leaves me with those 2 RBs in my opinion. Bush will vulture TDs
but that was never Forte's game, he had 3 last year.

In all seriousness, if the top 3 RB's come off the board first I'd go Rodgers or Brady. These guys are capable of putting up rediculous numbers. 50, 60 and 70 points a week is not unheard of for these two. It's tough to top a team who can put up that many points with one player... and, the chances of Rodgers or Brady getting hurt are much less than a RB. It's a solid move. Quality RB's are falling in the second round. I'm staying away from Stafford this year because Calvin is on the madden cover... Calvin goes down and Stafford will take a hit. Plus you know the guy who actually takes Calvin (pick 6-8) will be looking for Stafford in the second round(before you can get him.)

If you must pick between the two, I'd go CJ2K. I like Locker's chances this season to surprise and I'd target him as a #2QB last pick in the draft. He's going to check down to CJ a ton, who can score from anywhere on the field.

CJ2K has the upside, Forte the higher floor. Depends which way you like to draft, I'd go with CJ2K. Skip QB's.

I just went Forte over CJ2K in my Mako League. Good luck if you pick any Titan this year.

I am and will continue to shy away from CJ unless he looks good in his next preseason game.

1st game: Did not look good at all
2nd game: Looked good against the league's worst run defense last year
3rd game: As close to the regular season as you can get. If he does well, draft him.

I would go with CJ2k

Even if they are both the same, CJ2k has no one to share the ball with. Maybe that just me, i always draft RB who has the full time job with a bad backup, then the one who maybe a bit better on paper but have to share backfield with someone else.

Difficult to say.

I'd expect a heavy dose of Michael Bush this year given what they're paying him. They just promised Forte a butt-load of money, and I feel they'll lighten Forte's load to make him play all 4 years, his contract isn't entirely back-loaded. Both guys are equally proficient at pass-blocking.

On the flip-side, with Locker starting you might see more QB sneaks and QB draws at the goal line. But CJ2K is looking pretty good this year.


I'll give the tie-breaker to Forte, since it's PPR, and CJ2K has been dropping his passes like hot butter.

Incorrect.

Last year Marion Barber took 6 TDs. Or the equivalent of 360 rushing yards.

In 2008 Forte had 8 rush TDs. 6 came within the redzone, and 5 within the 10.

Stop watching these ridiculous exhibition games!

You know what CJ's talent is.

You know he's never suffered a significant injury.

If you weren't convinced on July 31, exhibition games won't convince you.

If you were high on him on July 31, exhibition games won't dissuade you.

I think they're marginal offensively this year. Suspect O-Line. Issue with Britt. Questions at QB.

I certainly wasn't going to risk a first rounder at 6 with him. I think Cook, Washington in the later rounds are possibilities, but nothing on this team will be a huge "get" this year.
