Within the first spherical of any fantasy soccer draft it is best to solely have one purpose: to choose the most secure participant accessible. I normally permit this purpose to hold over for my subsequent Three-Four rounds however your draft technique is your selection. However none the much less it’s a incontrovertible fact that along with your first decide it is best to have security as the primary purpose. That being mentioned I’m going to run by way of the highest 10 gamers so as of their common draft place, and inform you a bit of about them and provides them a security grade of 1-10.Additionally let me go forward and say that no working again will get a security ranking of 10 due to the quantity of hits their our bodies take all yr. Sooner or later of their profession they’ll all get harm. Let’s simply hope it is not whereas they’re in your workforce. The protection grading shall be bearing in mind: previous manufacturing, damage historical past, and projected efficiency.Arian Foster- Foster had some small damage points final yr that trigger him to overlook the primary three video games and the ultimate recreation and was nonetheless very productive ending 4th on the working again place. Search for him to be a strong possibility this yr. He will get quite a lot of touches within the Texans offense and definitely proved he had worth in 2010. SAFETY RATING: eight
Ray Rice- Rice has lengthy since had an issue discovering the top zone, till final yr. Rice had a escape yr and at last put up the numbers everybody knew he was able to. The most important query for Rice this yr is the offensive line in entrance of him. However do not search for that to gradual Ray down as he’ll get touches & passes. SAFETY RATING: 8Aaron Rodgers- Rodgers had a really strong yr final yr and with the identical crew again in Inexperienced Bay this yr search for him to construct on that efficiency. The one lacking piece to the Inexperienced Bay puzzle is a Gronk or Graham tight finish. However do not search for that to decelerate the aerial assault as Rodgers is your most secure guess this yr. SAFETY RATING: 10LeSean McCoy- Shady McCoy is the most effective RB this yr after a escape yr final yr. McCoy is a quick again with strong palms. He has the most effective likelihood to duplicate his manufacturing from final yr. The high-powered offense in Philadelphia will assist McCoy unfold the sector & maintain the protection sincere as he gashes them for yard after yard. SAFETY RATING: 9Tom Brady- Brady has simply pretty much as good of an opportunity as Rodgers and perhaps higher. Why? As a result of he has higher choices with Gronk, Welker, and Lloyd. Brady has been a high Three quarterback for the previous three years and has his finest group of receivers this yr with much less expertise at working again than ever. He’ll throw it a bunch. SAFETY RATING: 10Calvin Johnson- Whereas I’m not huge on taking broad receivers within the first spherical Johnson has security to a level. Though his manufacturing depends on Stafford’s well being and skill to get him the ball (which has by no means been an issue). If you’re superstitious then watch out for the madden curse if not then goal this man on the finish of spherical 1. SAFETY RATING: 6Chris Johnson- Speak about a man that individuals are projecting to come back again robust, and also you could be speaking about Chris Johnson. This man broke on to the scene in ’09 and hasn’t left the highest working again talks since. Even after a contract maintain out the place he confirmed again up over weight and outta form. Not well worth the threat of spherical 1. SAFETY RATING: 4Drew Brees- The highest quarter again of the yr final yr will as soon as once more be nothing lower than a brilliant star. With out his coach there calling the performs Brees must take management of the offense, however with 100% workforce assist he may have no points. Search for a robust yr transferring the ball round from Drew particularly to Graham. SAFETY RATING: 10
Darren McFadden- In addition to Chris Johnson, McFadden is the riskiest man within the high ten this yr. He has performed 4 seasons within the NFL and has been injured in all 4. After a six recreation 761 yard efficiency final yr a “foot sprain” price him his final 9 video games. He has additionally suffered toe, hamstring, and knee accidents. AVOID HIM. SAFETY RATING: 1Matt Forte- After ending off his huge contract deal Forte can now deal with the sector and with the addition of Brandon Marshall to stretch the sector Forte may have a number of room to run this yr. Whereas Forte has struggled to attain touchdowns up to now, take a look at guys like Ray Rice who struggled with the identical problem then broke out and scored them in bunches. That is Forte’s yr to attain and with little damage concern search for Forte to be a high 5 fantasy working again and a steal at quantity 10. SAFETY RATING: 9Well that is how the highest ten breaks down this yr. Bear in mind you wish to reduce threat and supply a steady of scoring efforts to your workforce this yr.
