I have a dilemma in my "bragging rights" league at work. Last year, I finished next to last in a 12 team league. Year before, I won the league (10 team).

I have the 2nd pick this year (10 team), so I will have the 2nd, 19th, and 22nd picks.

We do a .5 PPR league.

The history of our league (this is 4th year) is that QB's come off the board very quickly.

With the 2nd pick, I am looking at Rice, Rogers, and Brady.

With RB being so shallow, I am leaning towards Rice, but, I know that most if not all the big time QB's will be long gone before I get up to bat again.

Its all a trade off. Some will get better QBs, others will have better RBs and WRs. Personally I rather go with the stud RB at that spot and get a mid tier QB later.

Running backs are not so shallow as people may think. In fact I would say there are less elite wr's than there are rbs this year

I have a question on who to start at my 2nd RB slot.

Reggie Bush @ Houston
Steven Ridley @Tenn

Bush is projecting higher, but I don't love his matchup. Thoughts?

I would go with Bush. I need to see how NE is actually going to use Ridley before I buy in to that.

I wonder how many people have tried to add Ogletree last night or this AM. I looked at it, but decided against it. Heck maybe his big week 1 performance will be good for Dez and Miles as teams will have to pay some attention to him now.

I was pretty high on the NYG def but wasnt able to get them in any leagues since I dont draft defenses early, but after seeing that second half last night, Im kind of glad I didnt get them

Ogletree will do well this season but will be a hit and miss. Kind of like robert meachem last year. I wouldnt rush to add him since he is the number 3 and not a number 1 or 2 WR
