DC: I'm a proponent of value-based drafting, which means not necessarily going after the players who score the most points, but the players who outscore others at their positions by the biggest margin. There are plenty of quarterbacks and wide receivers who will give you consistent points each week, and when the season is all said and done, there isn't much difference between the second tier and the third or even fourth tier. You can't say the same for running backs because the league is shifting more toward a running-back-by-committee approach. For that reason, if you have the chance to grab an elite three-down back, take him. I would target Adrian Peterson, Arian Foster, Ray Rice, Marshawn Lynch, Trent Richardson and Alfred Morris before I'm looking at anyone else. Doug Martin, LeSean McCoy, Jamaal Charles and Matt Forte would also warrant early looks, especially in points-per-reception (PPR) leagues.
