    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I know there are threads for a couple of SF leagues, but don't believe we have a general advice and discussion thread. Since I'm not in either of the leagues, I'll put this question here:

    12 team league, picking #2. 1 point for every 3 receptions, which is a stupid and annoying rule.

    I think I've talked myself into Charles (operating on the assumption that AP goes first). Foster's hamstring scares me, and while contract talks are progressing with CJ, nothing's final, and I think there's an increased injury potential based on the fact that he hasn't been practicing. Can't afford to take a risk at the #2 spot. Anyone care to convince me otherwise?

    For what it's worth, I got Jamaal Charles at the #5 spot in the SF Yahoo draft. This was our first 2 rounds in full:

    1. Arian Foster
    2. Adrian Peterson
    3. Ray Rice
    4. Chris Johnson
    5. Jamaal Charles
    6. Andre Johnson
    7. Rashard Mendenhall
    8. Michael Turner
    9. Aaron Rodgers
    10. Darren McFadden

    11. Hakeem Nicks
    12. Shonn Greene
    13. Frank Gore
    14. Tom Brady
    15. Michael Vick
    16. Calvin Johnson
    17. Larry Fitzgerald
    18. Maurice Jones-Drew
    19. LeSean McCoy
    20. Roddy White

    Hopefully that helps. Just as a side note, the computer did a lot of the picking because most people weren't in attendance at the live draft.

    ^Thanks. It's a bit annoying because I suspect I he'd otherwise fall a bit lower, as you suggest. I'm really between Charles and Rice at this point (if AP falls to two, I'll take him).

    CJ2K signed and will start week 1 for Tennessee. Sucks that he missed camp and preseason, but he's probably the safest #2 right now IMO. But I won't blame you if you pick Charles. I had him last year and he was fucking awesome. The only frustrating thing is that Thomas Jones actually carried the ball more for most of the season, but that ain't happening now.

    No idea. In a draft last night I grabbed Gore at 22 and Nicks at 27. I've been very happy with my second and third round picks this year.
