This is the place for team advice - should I make this trade, should I draft that player, etc.

wow Mixon gathering is strong as ever..Never thought the overwhelming majority would push for him to be #1...

He does have talent, but no way I would take him over fournette as a top 5 pick or even other guys such as dalvin, cmc, and the 2 wrs...How does a guy who takes over games such as cmc, dalvin, and fournette go behind a guy who's talent couldn't even lead him to carry the load on his own college team..
They all took over games at certain times in college. None of these players have proven anything at the pro level yet. We're in the business of projecting here. Plus I don't get how so many people are in line to anoint cmc as some superstar in the nfl. He's a white Reggie Bush, and a poor mans Reggie Bush in my opinion. He weighs a solid 202lbs. I can't see him ever being a full-time feature back. He'll break down imo at the pro level. Just my projection though. I like Mixon a lot, but I'm not sure whom I'd take between him and Fourney. I have them as 1a and 1b. I think it world depend on the director of my team. If I was solid most places I'd roll the dice on Mixon, but if not then I'd do the opposite.

My 14 team PPR 0-3 RB (up to 5 WR) draft started today and Fournette went first.

Personally I would have gambled on the upside of Mixon.
You say this as if Fournette does not have upside.

I don't buy the "Mixon's upside over Fournette argument."

I buy the "Mixon's immense risk argument."

I'd go Fournette without question.

He would need to prove more on that aspect before I could even fathom a push to #1 in this talented group and thats not even factoring in his off the field issues..the risk far outweighs the investment at that price, but call me crazy
Honestly I don't think it was any lack of talent that led to Mixon not being a true bell cow at OU. I think Perine had simply cemented a role there and nobody was going to completely move him to the bench. Mixon got his touches and did plenty with them, so I wouldn't use this as a deterrent... JMO
