Fantasy Football Advice

by on August 19, 2007 updated August 24, 2007

I have the third overall pick in my fantasy football draft. Who should I pick?
Chargers RB LaDainian Tomlinson will be the top pick, followed likely by Rams‘ RB Steven Jackson.
That leaves me with Kansas City RB Larry Johnson. While Johnson is the biggest reason to check out Chiefs tickets, he hasn’t stepped onto the practice field yet and continues to hold out, waiting for a better contract.
I fully expect Johnson to sign and go on to have a productive year. But the Chiefs, on the other hand, will likely struggle on offense with either quarterback Damon Huard or second-year pro Brody Croyle at the helm.
One of my biggest factors involved in making sound fantasy football selections is picking players on good teams. So that’s why I’m little skeptical about picking Johnson with the No. 3 pick.
My first option is to trade down, thus improving my draft position in the second and third rounds, while still getting a solid starting running back.
Or I might just take New Orleans Saints RB Reggie Bush or Indianapolis Colts RB Joseph Addai. We gets points for receptions and for return yardage, which makes players like Bush more valuable.
Anyone have any suggestions?
