In the few dynasty drafts I've seen, Mcgahee has pretty much always gone in the top 3.

1128yds and 13TD's in 11 games last year.

Certainly a risk/reward pick though. Scary knee and rookie QB, but tons of upside.

I wanted that one guy who wears the cool colored jerseys, you know, the light blue ones, The SuperChargers or something. I like the color of those but instead I got this McGahee guy because he bends well. Did anyone see that Chips Bowl Game a few years back? Anyone who has a knee that can bend like that deserves to be a star in the NFL for years to come.

Bet my pick raised some eyebrows huh? Not confident in any of the 27ish year old backs, so I choose who I view as the best of the "young RBs". And no, I'm not a Lion fan.

I knew Kevin Jones would be available at 4, so I passed up the #3 pick in the draft. Lets see if it pays off in the 2nd round.

You're probably gonna catch some flack for KJ at #4, but I definitely would've made the same pick at #4.

When my turn came up to pick where I wanted to be in the draft order, the earliest spot was #5. I liked LT, Willis, SA, and KJ and then after that saw it as a big jumble. I thought about taking #5 and hoping one of those 4 fell but I figured we've got some very knowledgeable FFers in the league and didn't want to get stuck at #5 with those 4 being gone, looks like I made the right choice.

Nice pick kensat.

I'm not crazy about my first rounder and would be willing to part with him if I got the right offer.

I actually did a post on that at the FFC a while ago Arkansas.

In the first 5 weeks of the season, Edge had far and away the most carries inside the 5 yardline, with something like 16, twice as many as the next closest person. However, of those, his ypc AND conversion pct. (to TD's) were dead last.

After that, the Colts started throwing inside the 5 everytime, and he had something like 5 carries inside the 5 the last 11 weeks of the season.

So basically he was getting about 3+ carries per game inside the 5, then he sucked at it, and started getting about 0.4 carries per game inside the 5.

People say Manning 'stole' his TD's, but I tend to think of it the other way around in that Edge's ineffectiveness inside the 5 thrust those TDs upon Manning.
