In a ppr league, even with the carries for RBs getting attention, the smart money is on Moss this year. I'd take him as early as 6. Especially if the top 5 are RBs. Here the 6 RBs I valued the most were gone. No way Moss makes it back to me in round 2, and so if I want him, here is where I get him. And I wanted him.
Ask Steven Jackson and Shawn Alexander 2007 owners if there first rounds did them any good. Risk is higher at RB. Moss will not ruin my draft absent an uncharacteristic injury. He may not make it, but he won't ruin it.
My middle rounds however, will MAKE or BREAK my draft.
And the RB talent pool is deeper for adequacy, while shallow for sure things. The sure things being gone, Moss is on my team. A case could be made for Barber/Portis but hey, while I like Barber, I am not sold on his situation yet, as he is not the only game in town, and he is brutal, and without some spelling likely to get crunched. Portis has never done it for me in Washington, and with a new system and unproven QB I decided to pass with Moss on the board.
