    Hey guys, can anyone help with some last minute FF advice / resources? I agreed to jump in at the last minute but I've never played this. Draft is tomorrow

    Some questions:

    Do you guys like the Pats D this year? ( notwithstanding the uncertainty at ILB). I think our DB's will get a lot of INT's this year, and Tedi will be back to get a few of his own. Even w/o Rodney , starting with the same 4 we had back there last year.... I feel good about it.

    Is Brady a top 10 pick on most boards?

    Any sleeper RB picks?

    How about Watson as TE?

    thanks! ( If it makes a difference, I am playing against mostly Denver Donkey fans here in CO.)

    Thanks NEM, Obviously it'd be more fun to pick our players rather than have to face them!

    I was thinking that Maroney and Faulk would be taking a lot of carries from Dillon, but you're right about the TD's. I might take him second if I get a shot at one of the LT - LJ - SA's or maybe after a Tiki Barber or Cadillac Williams. I really haven't had much time to research this however. Wish me luck against these turds!

    I'd go LJ over LT this year. . .strickly speaking, his gimmick plays (i.e. passing for TDs) won't earn you any points.

    LJ and Tiki won me my league last year.

    I have to disagree with NEM. Brady is a top 10 pick in most leagues. . .he's #2 in fantasy behind Manning (obviously, they don't take away points for choking), especially after his numbers last season. He was #1 in points at the QB slot in our league last year. I expect his stats to be down a bit this year due to the improvement in the running game, but he'll still be Mr. Solid.

    Brady is the #2 QB in fantasy this year, but I wouldn't take him until at least pick 18 or later. I got him in the third round (pick #28) in my draft.

    #75 Jersey

    Another possible sleeper - Frank Gore RB 49ers

    I got him in like 10th or 11th round in my draft, he could have a pretty solid season
