Best thing is this year I got the first pick in the draft. Suggestions?
I'm thinking Brees, Chris Johnson, Aaron Rodgers or Peyton.
It all depends on who you're drafting against and what goes off the board the fastest. I always make my first and second pick based on what elite players will be on the board at certain positions the next round. If you pick first, then it will be a while before your next pick comes around so you want to think about who "won't" be there and who might. I usually go with a RB with my first pick to get at least one elite one and then I trickle it down from there by position depending on who is there. I think getting elite WR's is really important because throughout the season you can always find solid RB's who become starters and give you pay dirt. If you lose a top WR or have crappy ones, you're not going to find some stud out of nowhere most likely. There is one or two every year, but it's hard to be that guy that gets him where several RB's become valuable throughout the year that weren't worth a cent on draft day. QB's are very important in my league as well with 6 pts a TD and 5 per 100 yards.
If I were you I'd probably go with Chris Johnson or Jones Drew. If you go with a QB, I'd go with Aaron Rogers or Peydon Manning. If you take a RB first I'd probably go WR and QB the next two rounds and hope that Scahub, Rivers, or Favre is available with your next picks.
