What is your draft strategy heading into this years Fantasy Football season?  Let us know in the comment section!

Round 1 - Matt Forte is not 1st round material this season.  The Bears will be splitting carries in the backfield with Michael Bush and Jay Cutler has his old WR friend back in Brandon Marshall.  Did you know Forte is coming back from a torn ACL?  Even if he was healthy enough to be a 3 down back, the Bears wouldn't have it.  If you drafted Forte in the 1st round this year, I hope you had a VERY good reason!
Round 2 - Team 12 REALLY screwed themselves by backing up Forte with Andre Johnson!  The Texans have shifted to a run first team and Johnson is bound to miss a couple of games.  If you needed to go WR here I would absolutely suggest Roddy White, Greg Jennings and Wes Welker over Andre Johnson.  Darren McFadden on the backside of round 2?  YES PLEASE! 
Rounds 3 & 4 - Eli Manning to begin the 3rd round?  Reach much?  If you do not draft a 1st round QB or Newton/Stafford in Round 2, WAIT ON THE QB!  Julio Jones should be drafted before Mike Wallace as well.  Frank Gore on the back end of round 3 is an absolute steal.  But once again Team 12 is just shooting themselves in the foot with Trent Richardson!  Not that Trent Richardson is not worth a back end Rd 3 / beggining of Rd 4 pick, but if you draft a player coming back from a torn ACL, a player who gets hurt year after year and a player who is starting the season injured with your first 3 picks, you are probably going to struggle.  Oh an then you pick Michael Vick? He has already been injured twice this preseason!
Round 5 - Percy Harvin at the beginning of Rd 5 has real nice value in PPR leagues.  Aaron Hernandez in Rd 5 is a great value pick.

Round 6 - 9 - Gotta love landing Matt Ryan right after Philip Rivers is drafted.  Ryan is going to be the steal of every draft in these rounds!  With TE being so deep, it is worth a shot at Jason Witten should he fall this late.  After watching the Jets this preseason, Santonio Holmes is looking more and more like a WR 3 with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow tossing him the ball.  Doug Martin to start Rd 8?  EXCELLENT!  So much RB depth in these rounds it unbelievable.
Round 10 On - These are the draft picks used for Kickers, Defense/Special Teams, your sleeper pick, rookies, and big risk big reward type players.
