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.

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.
