I think Colston only missed a couple of weeks last year with the same injury. Granted, the recovery time is probably a little longer for a RB since they take more hits, but I don't think its a crazy recovery time.

I don't think Calvin will be available in PPR @ 8.

Wasn't PPR. Ended up getting Calvin at 8. Here's how the rest of the draft played out. Made a big risk in my usual draft strategy (waiting on QB) because the guy I wanted at my 2nd pick (Forte) went 2 picks before my 2nd pick. Took Stafford in 2nd round instead. What do you guys think? 10 team non keeper non ppr.
(round in parentheses)
QB: Stafford (2)
RB: Charles (3)
RB: Trent (4)
WR: Calvin (1)
WR: Demaryius (5)
TE: Jared Cook (11)
W/R/T: Percy Harvin (6)
BN: Doug Martin (7)
BN: Desean Jackson (8)
BN: Roy Helu (9)
BN: Jay Cutler (10)
BN: Alshon Jeffrey (15)
BN: Jacob Tamme (13)
DEF: Chicago (12)
K: Garrett Harley (14)

your team could be awesome or awful. but i think that's a lot of teams this year, just so many boom or bust players this season

Agreed. The one mistake I made in my draft that I could see already was in my 3rd round pick. I had taken a QB and a WR so far, so i had it in my mind that I needed to RBs no matter what; Due to this mindset I took Jamal Charles, lost out on Julio Jones on the picks in between mine and took Trent on the way back, when I could have taken Julio, then one of these RBs and gotten my RB2 in the form of Bradshaw, Sproles, or Law Firm in the next round.

Yup. It seems like there are just a ton more question marks this year than there normally are. There aren't that many guys this year that you can take and just bank on elite/great production.

huge speculation at this point, but if Andrew Luck dominates more preseason games then where does he fit in? rookies usually go in late rounds but none of them quite appear as much a sure bet for success than he does, i mean he looked so polished -- his completions in today's game were smart decisions that showed he was reading zone defenses, the timing was spot on, he demonstrated unshakeable composure, he escaped the pocket and made plays happen with his ARM instead of always running when he got blitzed, and he showed the maturity to take what the defense gives him even if that's only a 3 yard pass. do you take him late as a sleeper or can you be confident and take him as a middle of the pack type quarterback? and if somebody picks him before players like Jay Cutler and Joe Flacco, is he an idiot or did everyone else potentially miss out? how far up the draft does his enormous yet still unproven upside carry him?

this is going to be the hardest draft ive ever done in fantasy.
