Akers averaged 2-3 more points per game than any other kicker in football. I wouldn't mind a 2-3 point bump every week if all I had to do was draft a kicker in the 16th round instead of 17th
it's more the fact that you have no idea who the next david akers is going to be. did you expect akers to be that far ahead of other kickers at the end of 2011?

Right, but he has the best odds to. And the cost of grabbing him is so minimal that the possible benefits vastly outweigh it. Unless getting the Bengals second string runningback in the next to last round is that much more important than getting the Lions second stringer in the last round.

I need a few opinions. I'm trying to make a trade with my bro and want to give him fair value. I need a RB very badly; he could use a top wideout. I want to trade him Hakeem Nicks, Ryan Williams (he has Beanie Wells) and Santonio Holmes for Ryan Mathews. Fair enough?

Mathews was taken in the 2nd; Nicks was taken in the 4th, Williams in the 8th and Holmes in the 10th.

that is overpayment.

Yeah don't do that. You need to get way more than just Mathews if you do that.

Just Hicks and Williams is good enough, then?

More reasonable. Just be prepared to be without Mathews for a bit if you do this. I drafted him in 2 leagues, so I like him, but I got him at a severe discount because of his injury and I'm just hoping for the best. I expect him to miss 2 games or so. Have a backup plan in place.

you waited till the 5th round to take a qb? the balls on this guy

Once Brees, Stafford, Rodgers, and Brady were taken, I figured there wasn't a huge spread in the QBs so I focused elsewhere.

I seriously hate everything Eric Karabell writes about fantasy football. Dude's strategy opinions are stuck in 2006.

Right. I know he is set to miss a week or two (I hope). Thanks dude.

Sigh. Once again I lack RB depth. Hopefully Mendenhall comes back in October as projected. And Donald Brown has the potential to have a big year.

QB- Eli Manning, Jay Cutler
RB- LeSean McCoy, Donald Brown, Rashard Mendenhall, Dexter McCluster
WR- Victor Cruz, Brandon Marshall, Justin Blackmon, Devone Bess, Nate Washington, Mario Manningham
TE- Antonio Gates
K- Matt Prater
Def- San Francisco

Why on earth do you have two kickers? And a backup to gronk? Drop those and pick up best available WR and RB for depth immediately. A kendal hunter and randy moss type potential upside is probably there.

I got Forte, Charles, Tate, DeAngelo, Ryan Williams, and Ridley at RB. Jennings, Decker, Torry Smith, Crabtree and Jeffery at WR. Should I pick up Collie, Cobb, LaFell or Dwyer? I am looking more to add WR depth but word is Dwyer might be starting now and could be good trade bait. .5 PPR keeper league. Leaning LaFell.
