Yeah, I'm going to need all the real time help I can get. My knowledge of football is casual at best, so this could prove tough in spots. But, thankfully, it seems like there is a lot more of a formula than there is for baseball - so hopefully Ill be okay.

As I see it, there are a few routes I can go...

Since I'm getting Tomlinson with the first pick, would it be wise to then try and draft top WR's first - and then go back to my 2nd RB/QB around round 6 - (this is the strategy I'm leaning towards)...or should I lock up another strong back, and then worry about WR/QB?

Also, in some cursory readings at the FFC, I read about "handcuffing" - I think I understand the premise, but can somebody explain it in more detail? And what round should I be looking at handcuffing LT?

Draft is almost here ---- any tips on who I should be looking at for the last pick of round 2/first of 3? I'm thinking perhaps Palmer and another RB or possibly a WR? Any names to target? Also - if I miss out on Palmer when has Brady been going?

So how many do you start at each position?

With your scoring, grabbing a good QB is a must - at 25 ypp at 6 ppTD, Manning > LT, but you should still take LT first. I'd take Palmer in the turn, and another RB.

Really didnt realize it made that much of a difference....so go with Palmer over a WR/RB with 2/3?

3 QB's off the board by the time my 2nd pick came up....Peyton, Palmer and Brady.

I went with two WR's...Steve Smith and Torry Holt...

I'm targeting Brees/Mcnabb/Bulger to be my QB...and possible Boldin as my TE, but I highly doubt he makes it to pick 4.

Smith was probably a gamble but who knows...
