    It used to be that you always kept 2 RB's (I have been the big winner in this league as I had Marshall Faulk in his heyday and now have AP as my keeper so I am a firm believer in the 2 RB theory) and that kind of evolved in the last few years to a combo of RBs and QBs or RBs and WRs. This year was the first year where two owners kept 2 WRs. I have an internet service I use that provides some tools to use when drafting (simple Excel spreadsheets and macros based upon the services' player projections). The tools, in year's past, have agreed with the evolved strategy. This year, though, we are back to 2 stud RBs.

    Take McCoy. With D-Mac as the back up. McCoy is going to be very good this year I think.

    Oh and who did I pair up with AP? I could've (and probably should've) kept D-Mac but I went with Hakeem Nicks. Probably will work out as there was a run on the best WRs as keepers as well but I have no shot at getting D-Mac back or McCoy (I am picking in the #9 hole each round - we don't do serpentine draft - if you win you pick in the 10 spot the following year). Good luck - you can't lose in the position you are in. I love both McCoy and D-Mac.
    That's funny, the guy in our #9 spot has AP and Nicks as his keepers as well!

    We did the draft tonight, and I went with McCoy. McFadden ended up being kept and that manager put Mendenhall into the draft, but I went with McCoy anyways. Thought about letting Christ Johnson go and not keeping him and keeping Forte in stead, but I couldn't let him go and I'm holding out hope he signs real soon. I had so many picks from deals from last season I ended up with a pretty solid team. I've got Romo at qb, Chris Johnson and McCoy at rb, with Fred Jackson and Ryan Matthews backing up. Greg Jennings, Miles Austin, Mike Williams at wr, Jimmy Graham and Zach Miller at te, and Green Bay defense. I'm pretty happy with my team, just need the season to start now.

    Thanks for all the advice and feedback!

    That's a sweet roster. I didn't do nearly as well in mine. I would dump Miller - if the 'Hawks win 5 games I will be completely surprised and I live in the Seattle area.

    I ended up with: Rothlesberger, Eli; AP, Hillis, Fred Jax, Reggie Bush; Nicks, Bowe, Santana Moss, Andre Roberts, AJ Green (who I have since dumped for Emmanuel Sanders); Henery, Suisam; Pats and Giants. I screwed up and allowed the auto draft to take the Giants when I meant to get Houston. I hate it when I don't get to act on my intuition. I think Houston's defense is going to surprise a lot of people this year.

    Good luck to everyone this year.

    I say this is too complicated. Go to Lazy Dog Cafe and have a pint of Stone IPA draft beer.
