I have the 1st pick in my league draft this year.....because I had the worst team last year. Who should I take, or should I trade down to get more picks?

DeAngelo. Backs that are projected to go ahead of him are peterson, forte, and turner to name a few. He is projected around 6 or 8. I'm picking fourth, and I think I'll be picking him.

I'd probably think about taking Drew Brees. He was my first pick last year, and I won the league (I had Cutler in the other one, and won that one also).

My thing is that you have to take a top QB because they are hard to come by, but will consistently get you a good, if not great number of points every week.

Brees, P. Manning, Brady, Cutler, Rivers, or Kurt Warner would be on my radar.

Some People believe in the best RB.

In this case I would probably try and get Matt Forte as he was probably the most consistent back all year long (and was my main back), so again there is a consistent point total that you can look forward to.

D. Will, Peterson, Tomlinson, Turner, Slaton, and Chris Johnson would be on my radar.

I took chances on The Burner (and Jonothan Stewart ) as my first backs drafted last year. I also picked up Slaton and traded or C. Johnson. Like I said, Forte was my main back (and I traded Beason and somebody else for him before the season started).

Unlike some, between WRs and RBs, I tend to take the BAP. An Andre Johnson, Calvin Johnson, Fitz or Smitty is typically going to have games on par with top RBs.

Anyway, it works for me. I have two out of three trophies (missing the third, literally by a tiebreaker). Some are telling you to trade down, but I wouldn't necessarily look a gift horse in the mouth.

I had the first overall last season, and took Brady. We all know what happened to him. I ended up losing the PF tiebreaker, and missing the playoffs. This is my luck though as the year before I took Steven Jackson second overall, and the year before that I took Shaun Alexander second overall.

This trend has me steering away from Williams, and leaning towards one of the other top backs you mentioned top dawg. In my league RB is top priority. Points are awarded almost identically to QB(not yards), and every owner takes the RB first and alot also take them second.

At the fourth pick this year I am 95% sure I could get Williams and Slaton. I may could have Turner or Forte, and almost certainly any one of the QBs.

    • From the ssa wiki part on its history: The Social Security law was very unpopular among many groups, especially farmers, who resented the additional taxes and feared they would never be made good. They lobbied hard for exclusion. Furthermore, the Treasury realized how difficult it would be to set up payroll deduction plans for farmers, for housekeepers who employed maids, and for nonprofit groups; therefore they were excluded. State employees were excluded for constitutional reasons (the federal government cannot tax state government). Federal employees were also excluded. Many textbooks, however, falsely indicate that the exclusions were the product of southern racial hostility toward blacks; there is no evidence of that in the record.[15] Other scholars have replicated and endorsed DeWitt's analysis, agreeing that the exclusions were made by policy experts on technical grounds and were not grounded on racial hostility. Rodems and Shaefer note in all other countries unemployment insurance programs "excluded domestic and agricultural workers when they were first implemented, a fact that the key New Deal policy makers were well aware of.   Interesting stuff.

    • this is an old story that anti-progressive media is pushing. all that happened is she applied for a loan for the college, for which they're required to submit a list of their donations so the office knows that they're able to pay back the loans. she submitted the list but included bequeathmets on the donor list instead of as a separate list, assuming they counted as donations. that's it. that's the entire story. it's a minor paperwork error that comes with a small fine.
