Running back or quarterback?

Chris Johnson or Drew Brees, or even Adrian Peterson or Aaron Rodgers?

For those of us who are intimately familiar with these types of questions, we search within ourselves long and hard to find the answers.

For those who have no idea what I am referring to, well then get off that island, punch that time card, and get ready for another tension-filled, gut-wrenching, extraordinary year of fantasy football drafts.

Yes, it is that time of the year, when millions and millions of us pseudo-general managers put on the headsets, pull out the dry-erase boards, or head over to our "friendly neighbor's" basement to conduct business. That is the business of the "DRAFT."

Over the past several seasons, I have been fairly successful in my fantasy football league. Had it not been for my benching of Jerome Harrison last season, during the week in which he had a career day, I would be holding that classic bobble-headed trophy.

That was last year and this season, I am looking to not make that same mistake again.

So I am turning to you, Bleacher Creatures, to chime in, debate, and argue the age-old question:

Draft by position or best player on the board?
