10 team league, pick 8. Keeper league, 1 keeper per team, I have RG3 in the 9th round. AP, Spiller, T.Richardson, A.Morris are all being kept by other players. This means the other remaining top tier rbs will not make it to my pick. I have decided to take S.Jackson if he is there (say what you will, not what I'm looking for input on). If he is not there though it will be Megatron. My question is what would you do here after Megatron in the 1st round? I hate the 2nd tier of rbs in forte, mjd, Chris Johnson and so on. I dont know if its any different gambling on one of them as my RB1 in the 2nd and gambling on the rbs in 3rd and 4th. Do I suck it up and take one of them as my RB1? Or should I forget it and take another elite receiver in the 2nd like Green, Marshall, or Bryant and just load up on rbs in the rest of the draft hoping to get lucky with a couple? If I do, which running backs would you target in the 3 round and on?

Matt Forte finished 12th in scoring for RBs despite playing only 14.5 games. Over the past 2 years alone he's averaged 108 yds a game. Since his big season, CJ2k has averaged 95 yds a game running behind a horrible line; he finished 13th last year and has 2 new upgraded guards this year.

I'd be happy with either. Going WR/WR will hurt you, esp if it isn't PPR. Do you have any other keeper options?

Current W/T/L: 6-0-4 (60%) across 5 leagues.

10 teams and 1 keeper and RG3 is it? Tough start.

I wish I had better options for keepers but I don't unfortunately. I just hate taking forte or cj2k as my rb1 but maybe I'm being too picky, but next to them Megatron and Marshall are extremely attractive. Would you take forte in the 1st round? Or still take Megatron. Cus I could almost guarantee I could get forte and cj2k.

Yeah, with other teams keeping AP, Spiller, etc; you are way behind the 8-ball keeping a low end QB1 in a 10-team format AND picking late in the 1st round.

I love SJax this year though, hope he gets to you.

Is anyone in your league keeping a 1st round pick? Because there will either be some talent left for you or some guys not drafting in the 1st round.

No, in our league you can only keep 3rd round picks or later, no 1st or 2nd round picks.
