Turner. I think he will take a slight step backward from last year, but is still the #2 back. Forte and MJD are both good, but I don't think they are in that class.

I have seen LT rated around 7-8.

Good Luck!

Gonna be a tough decision. I got MOJO Drew last year with #11 overall, but since Taylors gone, I wouldn't hesistate taking him #2.

Is it a PPR league? If so, then Turner falls down the list unless you think they're going to turn him into a receiving back this year.

Peterson barely edges out MJD in a PPR league and that's IF, and only IF, you think Peterson is going to duplicate last years yardage. If he doesn't then he falls a little too. Reception points can add up in a hurry, and Turner and Peterson don't get the catches like MJD does or has in the past anyway.

Forte is the same way.....lot of receptions last year (three times the number that Peterson had and 10 times more than Turner). With Cutler coming to Chicago it's unknown how much he'll affect those numbers this year.

I'd take Jones-Drew PPR or not. In a PPR, like has been said, Jones-Drew is right there with AP. JD will be featured more in my opinion and on an offense with very little weaponry, he should get plenty of touches.

I have #2 on Thursday. It's stupid, but only reason I'm thinking Forte or Turner is that I already have MJD in a league. Barring injury, you'll be fine with all three, but I think MJD is the right pick. PPR league or not.

MJD went #1 in my league with AP going #2. Its a ppr league so Turner fell to me at #4.

If I had the second pick and AP was off the board I'd go MJD.

do you guys think that MJD is going to be able to carry the whole load this year being that he has always had another back behind him!

Yes. After week 6 or so last year they pretty much quit using Fred Taylor and MJD thrived and finished with great numbers. Thats why he has jumped from a 10 or so pick to a #1 or #2 in most leagues

DeAngelo Williams. Gets more receptions than Turner, higher average yds and no fumbles last year. He is the feature back in Car. Turner gets more touches and higher total yds. No doubt he's a stud but I might take Williams if I get 2nd pick.

i wouldn't you can get williams in the 2nd round easily....you can even get him in the 3rd and 4th in some drafts.

whats the funny part?

QB (coming off a torn MCL) in the first round. He won't have another 2007 you know, and to be honest, I would take Warner before Brady now, but not in the first round.

Some experts are actually picking MJD AHEAD of AP.

coming off a torn mcl doesn't really matter, everyone has the same chances of being hurt, he was the best fantasy player before the injury by a landslide.

You said it "WAS" he WILL NOT have another 2007 season, and like I said above, Warner is the better option of the two, especially with the emergence of Breaston.

lol ok, he can have half the season of 07 and still be a top rated fantasy player....warner is ok you can get him in the later rounds.

I would be willing to make a wager, say a fishing lure, that Warner will have better fantasy numbers than Brady at the end of the regular season.

If you want a QB that will win a Super Bowl, Bradys your guy. But, if you want better fantasy numbers, then go with Warner.

yeah depends on injury and how many games each of them play...they both have alot of targets...i'd take that bet though.

    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
