Draft Analysis
Round 1, Pick 4
Positives
LaDainian Tomlinson has been a perennial #1 draft choice in fantasy but after a toe issue side lined him last season he has fallen down the draft board. He is healthy, fresh, on a great offense and is ready for a rebound.
Negatives
He is not getting any younger at 30 and the coming out party of Darren Sproles could cut into his time.
Draft Strategy
Just going best available player and while many may think 1.04 is a little early for Tomlinson, he won't be available next time I pick. (Contributed by: Tony_Holm)

Round 1, Pick 4
Positives
I realize that we are in 2009 and not in 2007, but I'm banking on the veteran having much to prove this season. He is still the main fantasy option for the Chargers. He is well motivated, and for the first time since 2005, Tomlinson suited up and participated in a preseason game. The offseason reports indicate that he has worked hard to get his body ready for the pounding of a full season, I like the motivated veteran as the cornerstone of my fantasy team.
Negatives
The once clear cut overall top fantasy selection is no longer at the top of everyone's list. He's coming off a season that saw his body start to break down and he just turned 30.
Draft Strategy
For the first time that I can remember, there is no clear cut 'pecking order' at the top of the first round. Many have Matt Forte higher than Tomlinson, I don't, I can't bring myself to draft the second year player at 1.04. Given the choice, I would take Minnesota's Peterson at the top, Jones-Drew behind him, then I have Tomlinson third. There are benefits and drawbacks to all the RBs at the top this year, I'll go with the veteran with something to prove. (Contributed by: doug_coutts)
