Is Fred Jackson the pick or not???

Read the fine print.
Well I ask, because he's on your ESPN roster.

HaHa.

X should REALLY try reading his PMs.
I caught what you did, and figured you pm'd X after a couple of the replies.

Richardson is the correct, and only choice in that spot. Good selection

I PMd him prior to the selection. I sent him a text yesterday he never replied to yet either and he has 2 more PMs from days ago from me still waiting. I know he was going to the hospital yesterday, hope all is alright.
That's right. I meant to say something, but I've worked 44 hours over the past three days.

Hope everything is alright with you X.


Everything is alright. It has just been a long week and I spent a lot of time talking to a specialist in Ann Arbor today.

I'll edit everything but yeah, didn't see the fine print and have been too busy with other stuff to read my PM's.

Just glad everything is well.

According to my ADP data, Jackson was the 3rd highest rated available player. I counted on RF going RB and more specifically Sproles(rightly so) due to his insane year last year. But 703 was murky. His drafting style was always a bit of a wild card. So, I tried to get the 3rd best player out there. I knew Detfan would help because he is unabashed about the players he likes, had him last year, and almost kept him. I was hoping a couple other guys would come in I know despise Spiller and stand up for Jackson as well. Alas, that never happened.

And when 703 said he went with the "safe" player my heart dropped. Because a 31yo RB with a 1rd RB behind him is the last thing I would call safe. Got lucky and it worked out though Cool

I don't see it as a problem, but honestly I could afford to risk it with him being my 3rd WR.

I dont think there is a point in being bashful. Football is football and people all like a lot of same guys. I have 3 of top 15 picks so I am content on anyone.

I appreciate you not being bashful. Glad I could count on you.

Time will tell if those 3 picks do you well. All I know is I am extremely happy to haveall my QB, RB, and WR starters filled by the 4th pick in the draft.

I wasnt going to take Jackson in this draft TBH. Almost kept him but didnt want to draft him.

Several others I covet. None taken yet

Just my opinion, but there are a few WRs I would take in the 2nd/3rd round over Colston.

I am glad you guys feel that way. Maybe you will let my next target fall to me without trading up then.

Colston was easily the best WR available. Top 10 last year and now Meachum is gone. People hate but he puts up points.

Well ya, I understand people's injury concerns, but the bottom line is points. As long as he is on the field he was the most consistent and puts up the best #s. 184ppg in our league last year. Would have made him #3WR in our league last year had he played 16 games. Health is his only concern.

Except this year he is likely the 5th option behind Graham, Sproles, Thomas and Ingram, yes 3 of those are RB's but he still has to compete with Lance Moore and Devery Henderson for touches, as well as whoever decides to step it up. I was thrilled to draft him last year but he let me down and i think he is only going to get progressively worse, but as long as you like him then good luck, i just dont see it
