    Evidently the amputation and new leg went a lot better than expected. Today's medical community is really amazing.

    This is terrible news. I was hoping they would hold him out the rest of practice and preseason so he falls to me at #8 in my Labor Day weekend draft. :(

    I have a draft where I pick 22&23 - I have to admit wondering if all the morons would hear about Tommy and lay off him and Moss long enough to get them both at that ridiculously late spot. Usually only 2 QB and 2 WR are gone by then so I had a shot if people believed the injury hype.

    drafting a QB in the first round is a bad idea.

    I've never done it before but I would late in the round for Tommy - of course, my league has 22 teams so a late #1 is a little different than for a lot of teams.

    Brady's numbers are good enough to justify his standings, but if you take him in the first round you will be scraping the bottom of the barrel for adequate RBs and WRs in the later rounds and your RB2, WR2 will most likely be a bigger dropoff in points that the difference between Brady and say Clinton Portis. An adequate QB however, will still be there at rounds 6-7. Sorry to get way OT.

    EDIT - ofcourse if your league is that deep and Brady falls that far obviously you take him.

    Thing is QB and WR are safer bets. RB are a crap shoot. They get injured much more often. You know you are gonna get points from a Manning or Brady.

    Trust me, I'm usually one of the last people to draft a QB, but this league is 6pt Passing TDs and is very QB friendly. My computer program has Brady #2 value after LT.

    Plus, this year there are not a lot of stud RBs in the first. At #8 (in a 14-teamer), you're looking at Gore, Portis or Barber. I'd much rather lock up my QB, which then would allow me to take lots of nice RB prospects in the mid-rounds when I would otherwise be picking my QBs (the Chris Johnsons, McFaddens, Ray Rices) where I think there is a lot of value this year.

    All the RBBC situations have changed things a lot (sorry for OT). Not only does it chop the value of many RB (like Maroney) but, like you said, it adds lots of RB who'll be available later who are viable. Now you can get a Chris Johnson instead of a Kevin Faulk type 3rd down back. Picking 22 and 23 I may just take two WR and take a RB later - two years ago I wouldn't have considered it.

    But you can secure a solid QB in the 6th round, you can't really say that about RB or WR. I think it's much more risky to have to really on an upside-only type of pick like Felix Jones or Jonathon Stewart as your RB2.

    22 team league, that's just crazy. How can you field a starting lineup every week? Sounds like you must have to really dig for the talent at the end of your lineup.

    It's a 22 team league. It used to be 24 but when two owners left we didn't replace them for some reason. At one time we were discussing making it a 32 team league - that would put more emphasis on the value of QB :)
