Fantasy Football is a season of giving. Usually these gifts are ones of smack-downs, tears, self-loathing, or a hole in your wallet.

Fantasy Football is also a season of taking. However, all of the danger lies in the taking. The culprit of this danger, is the Fantasy Draft. Year after year, many think they have devised a brilliant scheme to win their league.

However, most of these revelations equate to decisions like drafting Donovan McNabb because he and Mike Shanahan are a match made in heaven.

Whether it’s a snake or an auction draft, there are some hefty decisions to be made. No decision weighs greater than who to place the stakes of your personal franchise on. I’m talking, who’s going to be the bread maker?

Last season you didn’t see Arian Foster or Michael Vick going in the first round or even auctioned over $10 for that matter. Whereas this year, you won’t be able to take these guys past sixth overall or for cheaper than fifty big-ones.

This year the draft board is more convoluted than ever. With concerns about Foster’s hamstring, Vick’s durability and consistency, Chris Johnson’s holdout, Peyton Manning‘s neck, Maurice Jones-Drew‘s knee, Ray Rice being able to live up to his fantasy hype, and even Adrian Peterson‘s offensive line, there is no clear-cut number one, bona fide, mack-daddy top choice.

Or is there? You let us know.

FYI – Shameless Bronco fantasy stat: In the last three weeks of the 2010 season, no player scored more fantasy points than Tim Tebow.

    Adrian Peterson no doubt.  How about a broncos fantasy article?  I took Thomas last round in my draft, debating between him, Royal, and Decker.  Then I watched the Seattle game, what happened to our number one draft pick, why is he not living up to expectations?  Is it injury?  I'm still mad that we passed on Dez.  But there are plenty of things McD did wrong.  Well during the Seattle game, Royal looked like he did two years ago and Decker even stole some spotlight.  I'm thinking of dropping Thomas for Royal, what does everyone think?  As for the rest of our team fantasy wise, Orton would be a steal, he's going way low.  Moreno will split too much time with McGahee, but most backs do now.  Prater is going to have a great season, and Denver's defense is going to surprise some people.  They will be waaaaay better than the 30th or so most people rank them.

    I'd take Decker.  I think he'll wind up with better numbers than Eddie.  Either way you've got to get rid of Thomas.  I think they're going to wind up putting him on IR after wk 6.
