    LT with a no doubt, most consistent high scorer. Consistency wins fantasy championships, not stars, In good leagues it's the most consistent scorer that wins, not always the guy with the best players.

    AP and S-jax are locks at 2 & 3 and really do not see how S-Jax is not on this list

    Westbrook is awesome, but if your league does not all for ppr (points per reception) then he drops a little bit.

    Awww i am so saddened, I have Both LT and AP in a Keeper League :/ last year i drafted AP in round 5, and then i traded 4 people for LT when some dudes team was like all injured

    I can only think that people will be taking Brady or LT with the first pick, but I know that with my first pick in my FF drafts (whether it be #1 overall or not) I will be aiming to draft Adrian Peterson.

    I drafted LT first last year and he was very disappointing. He wasn't nearly as dominate has his previous year. I would draft Westbrook. He is more valuable IMO:icon_cheesygrin:

    LT was a dog for the first 6 or 7 weeks last year

    Ive never taken a QB first before

    I drafted LT in 1 league (i remember someone tried to offer Jackson and nothing else the day after:lol:)
    He came good in the end after a a bit of a slow start.

    I still think it has to be LT for now but this could be the last year.

    I drafted LT first last year and he actually had very little to do with me winning my Championship. It was more the trades that I made for Brett Favre and one for Jamal Lewis. I went a couple weeks where I started Lewis over Tomlinson.

    I still like Westbrook best because he consistently scores high. Rarely does he have an off week. The league I play in counts a lot for recieving yards and catches also. Which I think is cool because it rewards the entire package of a player. AP and LT aren't as consistent in my book. I certainly wouldn't turn down either of them on my team but I've had Westbrook the last couple years and just love having him on my team.

    Both Westbrook and Tomlinson can score from anywhere on the field by either reception or rush. Peterson isn't a big receiving guy.

    If you enter PPR into the mix, then you need to start throwing Reggie Wayne and company into the conversation as some of the top picks, but Westbrook and Tomlinson would still get the nod over them.

    The only way you put Parker #1 is if your league offers bonus points for long TD's. Even then, he's not guaranteed them and Westbrook and Tomlinson can do the same.

    while doing some research for last years draft
    I stumbled across a site that had the following guys taken number 1 in various drafts

    Julius Jones, Matt Leinart, Brandon Jacobs, and this one really threw me for a loop

    Was that maybe a keeper league and those players were the only ones left?

    In a PPR league I'd take Westbrook #1 over LT.

    I think I may agree, but I'm not sure I'd actually pull the trigger on that one...

    there are leagues where douchebags get two teams to win free leagues and tank the other team, seeing those names on a list that probably polls thousands if not more leagues is not a surprise.

    Also Westbrook is consistent, but more valuable in a ppr league.

    Again no mention of Stephen Jackson, I am more than a bit surprised
