    12 team PPR. Pretty standard scoring except that QBs get a point for every 25 yards and only 4 points for a TD pass.

    Shady, Charles or AP?

    I think I'd take McCoy or Forte.

    I had no. 1 and picked AP. Yeah he's old, but he doesn't break his thumb and isn't a proven liability like Forte.

    I think I've settled on McCoy. Now onto picks 24 and 25.

    Oh that's a brutal wait.

    I'd go back to back studs at WR and then go RB and QB in the next go.

    I like it, except QB/TE on the next go. RBs get hurt and new guys emerge. Rather go for a top 5 TE than #15 RB. You will find better on waivers early in the season. My biggest regret of last season was not scooping up Knowshon on week 1 waivers, because I was waiting for David Wilson to get going.

    Also, I like Charles over Shady this year. They gonna give lots of touches to Sproles, so Shady is fresh for the playoffs.

    Based on these preseason games it appears that everyone now sucks at football and every game will end with single digit scores.

    AP is nothing special in a PPR league. He was #9RB last year. Only 29 catches holds him back. Charles and Forte had over 70 each, Shady had 50. Charles in Andy Reid's offense is going to have 70 catches every year. Especially w/ no WRs of note in KC.

    Norv Turner is in town. AP is projected for 50-60 catches.

    nah, the defensive penalties are designed to allow a huge passing league to enhance scoring. as long as teams are good in the red zone the points should add up
