Forte, Turner, Jones-Drew for 3rd overall

Forte, Turner, Jones-Drew for 3rd overall

Ok, I need some help. I have the 3rd overall pick in a PPR league im in. I know the first overall will be Peterson. Assuming all three of these running backs are still there. Which one should I choose. I am leaning towards Forte because I know he will get alot of catches.
I agree with you. Chicago has no big WR threats and Turner's carries will be dropped a little due to Gonzalez now in ATL. Either way though all 3 are great players so it shouldnt' turn out to bad for ya.

PPR league I have MJD pre-ranked #1 overall so........


As good as Peterson has been MJD has scored more TD's over the past 2 years. All that with Fred Taylor starting ahead of him and MJD never having 200 carries in a season. Then throw in the extra 60 catches MJD has over Peterson.

MJD would be my choice at #1 so definitely #3 in a PPR league

Thanks for the help. Can't wait for the season to start
I think that MJD could very well be the #1 Rb this year. I would take him at #3 in a heartbeat
Some guy was giving me crap for taking Jones-Drew over Turner. I had the 2nd pick in the draft. I was like.....you don't know what you're talking about.
If it's a PPR league (which it is) I would take MJD in a heart beat.

If it's non-ppr, for me it would be a tough call between MJD and Turner but I'd still probably go with MJD.

Why is LaDanian not an option? IMO, people are going overboard with their worries about him.

PPR MJD>Turner. If it's not a PPR I'd go Turner>MJD. That's just my opinion though.
I ended up with MJD since Forte went #1 and Peterson went #2. Turner actually fell to #6.
