I just had a draft where I had the 2nd selection and DJ went 1st. I passed over Bell for AB. Bell, to me, when you have to wait so long for your second pick, is too much of an injury snd suspension risk.

WR: Devante Parker

You really can't go wrong with either, this year you should just thank your lucky stars that you got a top 2 pick. It's like getting a RB and #3 receiver that you can use in one slot. That's a pretty nice team.

Great point.

I should also note there is a RB/WR/TE slot that I'll fill with Martin/Garçon most weeks I imagine.

Kind of worried about backup QB. There is no starters left. Hopefully someone drops someone.

I reaaaally wanted Bell. (I had the first pick too)

To me Bell is hands down the best RB in the league, it's not even close. But that's WHEN he is on the field. Granted, there's no reason to assume he won't be.... until he's not. This is one of the few times I decided to listen to everyone else and all the "experts" instead of myself and I went with David Johnson. Hope I don't regret it.

I agree Bell is the best in the business, but Johnson is special in his own right, and all things considered he's much safer. I think it's the right pick.

Bell.

He's healthy. It's his contract year.

He has an offense to take the load off him (Brown, Bryant, and that OL)

Tomlin doesn't expect to sign him after this year... so they will run the hell out of him. Expect a huge workload.

This isn't even close. Bell. By far. Watch the tape. That's all I'll say. This isn't a contest.

In a vacuum, I'd agree. Bell is the better back and better talent. But now you have Le'Veon Bell missing all of training camp, and that terrifies me if I'm thinking about taking him. I'd love to see the % of guys who get seriously injured that next year after doing that. I'm betting it's a big number. And Bell has had trouble staying healthy as it is. And then there's the whole, "one joint away from a long suspension" thing...that's a lot of baggage for a #1 overall pick.

For these purposes, I'd rather take David Johnson, who will give you 90% of what Bell would head-to-head over 16 games, but unlike Bell, may actually play 16 games.

That's what tipped it for me as well. Missing TC for an already injury prone player? How's his conditioning?

While I like Bell better and think Bell WILL be better, I'd gladly give up the 10% or so more production he gets for a much safer floor in David.

Also Palmer has been looking a lot better under his new TC schedule. A better Palmer will only help DJ more.

Have my 2nd cash league draft tonight. In this league I got the 2nd pick, so I'll have either Johnson or Bell in both. Gotta consider that rather lucky this year what with their being a clear top 2.

Guy ahead of me took Bell #1, so guess I'm a Jonson fan this year!

Haha. I had the 2nd pick in my league and would have taken Bell 1st overall.
