    One pick I cannot get behind on is Charles in the Andy Reid offense disaster. He doesn't run the ball nearly enough to make Charles a fantasy pick IMO. Andy Reid screwed over McCoy, I see a similar thing happening with Charles.

    I agree that Charles is ranked too high in FF this year for that reason, but there's no way he's going to be throwing the ball more than 55% with Alex Smith.

    He'll have to be more balanced.

    Charles is currently ranked #4, but I don't think I'd take him until late in the 1st.

    IDK man. He threw the ball a ton even during that short time when Kolb was his QB. And KC is solid at receiver.

    This is also true. And his qb situation is more tube locked than before. I still have doubts about it.

    Where would you guys draft CJ in a FF draft...

    ESPN & Yahoo have him ranked as the #15 RB
    http://espn.go.com/fantasy/football/story/_/page/2013preseasonFFLranksRB/top-120-running-backs
    http://sports.yahoo.com/news/fantasy-football-rankings--13--running-backs-225730034.html

    NFL 'experts' have him anywhere from #11-#19

    That leaves me wondering.. where can I draft Chris Johnson at? I'm in a 12 team $100 league, it's my only league (normally try to do just one). I'm trying to decide if I should pull the trigger on him Rd 2, or can I risk it to wait to Rd 3. I'm thinking take him Rd 2 because I anticipate a CJ rebirth this year. What's everyone elses thoughts?

    I think you have to look at how people are drafting in the first and look where you are drafting in the third. If you are going to be mid to late, no you will not get CJ and you not not get him mid to late second. I would not personally take him until the third unless all big name running backs are gone he is the only non injury plagued, full time starter on the board.

    Yeah, it's hard to predict. I'm hoping for a spot around 6-10. Take Trent Richardson with my first pick and follow up with Chris Johnson in rd 2. Then, follow up with the best QB/WR rds 3 & 4. Then go for a sleeper RB Rd 5, hoping for Le'Veon Bell, Montee Ball, or Chris Ivory.
