[Comment From DevoDevo: ]

I have the 4th pick in my draft and it sounds like J Charles, Martin, or Foster will fall to me….what should I do..kinda like Charles/Martin



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:06 Devo





Adam Meyer: 

I would be happy with any of those three options. Give the early health scares for Arian Foster and Jamaal Charles, I would lean towards Doug Martin. The Muscle Hamster is the lead running back and will rarely share carries.

[Comment From MPGMPG: ]

Im concerned about Levian Bell’s possible injury. I was wondering whether i should take a waiver on Jonathan Dwyer or Daniel Thomas?…who do you think has more upside as a replacement for the possible time Bell may be out?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:09 MPG





Adam Meyer: 

With the Steelers’ running game taking a major hit with today’s news on Bell, I would keep an eye on LaRod Stephens-Howling. When given the opportunity in Arizona he had a couple big games last season.

[Comment From AshuAshu: ]

How late would you draft a Tight End



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:11 Ashu





Adam Meyer: 

In PPR leagues, I would target Witten around the 4th round. Or, aim for Graham or Gonzalez in the 5th.

Non PPR leagues, I would wait until the 6th for the elites and 8th or 9th for the others.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:14 Adam Meyer





[Comment From Matt W.Matt W.: ]

I’m in a PPR league. How early is too early to reach for Danny Amendola?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:17 Matt W.





Adam Meyer: 

I’m higher on Amendola than others are. Brady made Welker the 4th highest targeted WR last season. Currently, Amendola is in my top 20 WRs list.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:18 Adam Meyer





[Comment From SamSam: ]

Would you rather have Marshawn Lynch or LeSean McCoy? Why?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:21 Sam





Adam Meyer: 

I tend to play it safe for higher draft choices. Marshawn Lynch averaged 15.7 fantasy points per game in 2012. LeSean McCoy was battling injuries and now has a new offense to work with. I’m leaning towards Beastmode.

[Comment From RegisRegis: ]

How long should I wait on a quarterback?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:22 Regis





Adam Meyer: 

This is one of the biggest questions for this year’s draft (other than who to take after ADP)…

I was in a draft today where Aaron Rodgers was still available in Round 2. In my mind, it was a must to select him. It’s the only draft where I’ve taken a QB that high this year.

The RB pool is shallow this season. If you can live with Kaepernick, Luck, RG3, or Wilson as your QB you can wait until Rounds 6-8. Cutler is going around Rounds 10-undrafted.

[Comment From BlakeBlake: ]

Keeper league, McCoy. Or AJ.Green



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:32 Blake





Adam Meyer: 

There are plenty of WRs out there. I’d lean Shady McCoy.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:32 Adam Meyer





[Comment From Iowa DaveIowa Dave: ]

I’m in a 16 team keeper league with the 15th pick in a snake draft. I need to choose two of the three; Lynch, Brady and Spiller. Which two?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:33 Iowa Dave





Adam Meyer: 

If I ended up with Lynch and Spiller in a 16-team league I would love my team.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:33 Adam Meyer





[Comment From SamSam: ]

Who will win the Super Bowl?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:35 Sam





Adam Meyer: 

Denver Broncos. Should have won last year…




Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:36 Adam Meyer





[Comment From AlAl: ]

Will David Wilson get the goal line carries? Or is his lack of blocking going to keep him out?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:37 Al





Adam Meyer: 

Andre Brown led the Giants with 8 TDs last year. I see him getting the same vulture role in 2013.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:37 Adam Meyer





[Comment From Hawks NestHawks Nest: ]

Adam- Jamal Charles or Trent Richardson as my keeper in a PPR league? Very concerned w/ Jam Charle’s foot..Thx again..



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:38 Hawks Nest





Adam Meyer: 

Charles. Andy Reid tends to feature the running back in his offense. Plus, Jamaal gets a decent QB this year.

Richardson’s yards per carry worries me. Not a fan of his QB either.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:39 Adam Meyer





[Comment From StephenStephen: ]

I am in a 14 team league and have the number 1 pick- I am considering trading out of it to stockpile 2 picks per round for 2-4 .. Would you make this move? I know passing on AP seems crazy



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:39 Stephen





Adam Meyer: 

Stock piling sounds smart, but I have a hard time passing on ADP. Last year people were worried about him and he crushed it. With 2,500 yards as his goal, I want that guy on my fantasy team.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:40 Adam Meyer





[Comment From tftf: ]

deep sleeper. picking from the trash heap for a deep sleeper. marcell reece, mike james or LSH. I have my starters with maritin, bush, flex is lamar miller. ppr league



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:41 tf





Adam Meyer: 

I’d go LSH out of the three.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:41 Adam Meyer





[Comment From StephenStephen: ]

If you were to wait until after the 50th pick to draft a WR (12 team league), who would you look to target in a PPR league? Drafting rb-rb-rb-rb is a strategy I am considering.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:42 Stephen





Adam Meyer: 

Greg Jennings, Cecil Shorts, Kenny Britt, and Miles Austin.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:43 Adam Meyer





[Comment From Hawks NestHawks Nest: ]

Adam- Can u please rank these RB’s for a PPR league, Forte, Sproles, R. Bush, MJD, S-Jax, Ridley, & D.Wilson? Thx 4 the time..



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:44 Hawks Nest





Adam Meyer: 

Ridley, MJD, Sproles, SJax, Bush, and Wilson.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:44 Adam Meyer





[Comment From Matt W.Matt W.: ]

In a PPR league, how early is too soon to draft Amendola?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:46 Matt W.





Adam Meyer: 

5th Round is too early. I’m higher on him and would still wait until the 6th or 7th in PPR leagues.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:46 Adam Meyer





[Comment From GuestGuest: ]

thought on eifert?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:48 Guest





Adam Meyer: 

In standard 10 or 12 team leagues, he’ll be undrafted. I think eventually he’ll be a great TE in this league. However, Gresham was the 10th highest targeted TE in football last year.

If Gresham goes down, scoop up Eifert ASAP.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:49 Adam Meyer





[Comment From ThomasThomas: ]

What do you project for Daryl Richardson in St Lou? How many recs should we expect? ~50?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:50 Thomas





Adam Meyer: 

When he was competing with SJax, DRich received 36 targets and 24 receptions. SJax was only targeted 54 times. I’m looking at 40 receptions for DRich this year.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:51 Adam Meyer





[Comment From BizBiz: ]

Should I trade my Stafford + McFadden (my 3rd best RB) for his Wilson + Chris Johnson?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:53 Biz





Adam Meyer: 

I would. I really like Chris Johnson this year and McFadden is Mr. Glass.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:54 Adam Meyer





[Comment From Rich FrankRich Frank: ]

Isaac Redman now that bell is down?



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:54 Rich Frank





Adam Meyer: 

Tough competition. Redman would seem to be a decent pick given his history. Don’t count out Dwyer and LSH, too.



Wednesday August 21, 2013 5:55 Adam Meyer





Adam Meyer: 

It’s 6pm which means my time is up. Thanks for all of your questions. If you have any others, please feel free to send me a tweet @FOXSportsMeyer. Good luck this season!
