    Fantasy Draft: Help! I'm picking at #2

    I'm in a traditional fantasy football, non-keeper league. Where QBs score 1 pt per 25yd passed and 4pts per TD pass. Rushing/Receiving gets 1pt per 10 yards gained.

    I'm picking at #2 - and assuming consensus #1 Adrian Peterson is taken: Who would you take at #2?

    I'm leaning towards Michael Turner but appreciate thoughts on this.

    Thx.

    I have the 2 as well and probably going with MJD. Turner was never good against good teams and had 370 carries last year.

    I was thinking Forte at 2 as well until i saw his schedule. Especially at the end of the year during playoff time.

    When I started this thread I was leaning Turner and now I'm leaning towards MJD followed by Forte.

    I really hate having this pick.

    It would be a mistake not taking Turner...

    The only thing that will diminish are his carries... They rode him hard because of a rookie QB...

    A now sophomore QB that the defenses will have to respect this year...

    His production will not drop off barring injury...

    The only QB worthy of that high of a pick was Brady in 07...

    People tried to replicate, picked him in 08 and bam, knee injury...

    I lol'd...

    Who is that in your avatar and signature...is she from Brazzers.com ?

    Whats her name? I like her.


    But back on topic.......
    Forte is a great choice. Most of the Defenses are so tired towards the end of the season.

    I took MDJ with the 3rd pick, the first two obviously being AP and Turner. If Peterson is gone you have to go with Turner.

    It's a crap shoot and all the right names have been thrown out there.

    My board looked like this for a draft I had this morning...

    1. AP
    2. MJD
    3. Turner
    4. Forte

    I'd wait on a QB. If everyone else seems to wait on QBs a little too then grab a QB at #19. You might get one of the top 4 or 5 guys if there's a run on RBs in the first two rounds.

    MJD or Turner. MJD might get in the end zone more because he's a better reciever.

    Last year, Turner had 9 receptions (is that right?) and MJD had 51. Matt Forte had 59 receptions ..

    I play a point per rec league....so that stuff matters to me.
