So this TD we pick who we take in a fantasy draft first thru third in each position including Defense and kickers....no flex ...just QB RB WR TE K DEF...Top 3 in the order you would rank them.

First argument just the picks , second and third your reasons.

QB

Aaron Rodgers
Tom Brady
Cam Newton

RB

LeSean McCoy
Arian Foster
Ray Rice

WR

Calvin Johnson
Roddy White
Brandon Marshall

TE

Rob Gronkowski
Jermichael Finley
Jimmy Graham

K

David Akers
Stephan Gostkowski
Dan Bailey

DEF

Eagles
49ers
Packers

Should of thrown the Kickers out of this TD but whatever ...Good Luck


I love Newton and think he'll do great things but Drew Brees has got to be more valuable. Brees is coming off a great year and now has the team on his back. I expect him to have another great year. Newton as a running QB scares me. Its hard to put a running QB in the top 3 in my opinion with the risk of injury. Newton may one day crack that top 3 though but I just can't see it being this year over Brees.

Last season AJ Green had a memorable rookie season. This year he gets a full offseason which he didn't have last year with another rookie QB and a rookie OC. This year all 3 get a full season and a full offseason. AJ added 10 pounds of muscle while keeping his speed the same.

I realize San Fran added alot of pieces on offense. The one consistent piece though is Vernon Davis. The only way I look at this is pressure is going to be off Vernon which will free him up more often. No longer can teams just worry about Davis and Crabtree to a much lesser extent. Davis is a freak athlete and will get plenty of touches. He put his team on his back against the Saints in the playoffs.

I guess I wont change the Kickers and stuff. I do think Janikowski will be up in the top 3 though.


Alright so you didnt pick your three guys for each position...and you didnt mention defense

Brandon Marshall playing with Cutler will have a huge year...he had over 100 catches the last three years he played with him.

I did pick AJ Green in a previous debate to be in the top 5...he will be close tho...its the Bengals.

I think VDavis is a beast but with Manningham Moss Crabtree , Smith will mix up a bit...and again were talking about Smith who im not sold on.

Finley had a decent year last year but this year will be even better...he stays healthy he will be top 3.

Again you didnt change anything with RB and Defense which is pretty weak.

Brees is great and will have a good year , but without his head coach it will show a bit .

Newton will have a bunch of rushing TD's and kid knows his playbook alot better.


That was then, this is now regardging Marshall. This years Bears team features Cutlers college option in Earl Bennet, the speedster Devin Hester, and a very promising looking rookie who was once considered a sure-fire top 10 pick in the draft in Alshon Jeffery. Who personally I would have ranked right up there just below Julio Jones and AJ Green talent wise. So while I do love the Marshall - Cutler connection the other WR options mixed in with the sweet running Matt Forte and the bruising Michael Bush I just can't see Marshall having a fantasy dominated season like I do an AJ Green.
AJ Greens team doesn't have the same rushing attack that the Bears have and while the rest of the WR's on the Bengals have been upgraded its not enough to take AJ's touches away. To compare a former young QB-WR combination I see Green and Dalton having a Cutler-Marshall Broncos type season.

Drew Brees is playing with a chip on his shoulder this season. Say what you want about Payton being gone but I don't really think that matters to Brees and these Saints. The Saints will be playing no holds barred this year and Brees will put up Madden esque numbers.


Ok but the TD was a debate of my picks vs your picks top 3 in each spot for fantasy. You decided to not really pick anybody, and just dump on my picks....

Drew Brees you said and ok he's up there , but I think without his head coach his numbers wont be close to last years amazing season.

Anyway theres alot of ifs here and you didnt play this one right.

Ill say this I will replace Roddy White with Julio Jones....damnn this dude will be great....I had a TD last week vs DJ and we debated Julio Jones , after yesterdays game how ya like me now

RG111 looked good too tho , but hey its preseason game 1 , cant really judge too much off that.

Inguries been crazy hope that doesnt continue

switch finley for davis. lions d is good if you don't lose for pts allowed. wr is going to have plenty of options. i'd probably get rid of both white and marshall since white is going to be a coin flip between him and jones as to who has the bigger day/season. marshall i'd toss since its going to be hard to say if cutler stays healthy. only real plus for him is that the north is going to most likely be a very high scoring division with the pack, lions, and bears.

August 7, 2012  05:51 PM ET

qb will be debatable too. brees and vick both could have arguments made for them.

August 7, 2012  06:55 PM ET

Sure theres alot of options , lets see who he picks

August 7, 2012  06:56 PM ET

Brandon Marshall will tear it up this year

August 7, 2012  07:02 PM ET

Last three years with Cutler on Denver 102 104 101 catches over 1000 each season ...and now thier on a better team with Forte and a much better D...your going to see 12 to 15 TDs this year

AJ Green, Drew Brees and Vernon Davis are additions as of now. Will get to this later though.

AJ Green over Larry Fitzgerald? Interesting.

August 7, 2012  07:40 PM ET

I went across the grain with Newton Marshall and Finley...but youll see why

Say what you want about Finley but i'd love to have that thorough bred on my team if he ever puts it all together.

Finley's a money pick this year. Chances are, for where you'll get him (in most drafts), his value won't be matched.

August 8, 2012  07:44 AM ET

I thought Finley was a "money" pick last year and he ended up sucking. This year I'll take Vernon Davis instead. Or Brandon Pettigrew.

He's borderline top 5 fantasy TE right now, with a really high ceiling, but I'd go with Gronk, Graham, Gates, Witten and Davis if I had my choice. Jacob Tamme, Brandon Pettigrew, and Coby Fleener have some pretty good upside if you miss the initial run of TEs.

Oooooh forgot about Fleener matched back up with Luck... That should be a good one to watch. I could probably pick him up off the waiver wire too.....

Oh and no thank you on Gates.... I think he's done.
