In my most competitive draft last year 21 of the first 24 picks were RBs. Because most NFL teams play one running back and a fullback used strictly for blocking, but fantasy teams have 2 running back spots to fill, the scarcity is incredible.
This is why I prefer fantasy baseball - different strategies can work. You can go for hitting over pitching, speed over power, thin positions over big bats, closers over starters, whatever. Lots of different ways to build a winner. In a good fantasy football league, you really have minimal choices and the type of team you get is pretty much dictated by draft position.
I agree...last year in my league, I had the last draft pick...and obviously all of the top RBs were gone...so I tried a strategy that would work in fantasy baseball. I drafted the top 2 players at the other positions (QB and WR) in Donovan McNabb and Marvin Harrison....I even got Jeremy Shockey as my TE in round 3. It really doesn't get much better than that. I got some mid-level RBs later in the draft. What place did I get you're wondering? 8th out of 10. It was terrible and absolutely no fun and a waste of $50, just b/c my draft position sucked. I don't think I'm going to play again this year.
