Second Draft of the year


Recommended Posts

Was a 12 team, 22 round best ball QB-RB-RB-WR-WR-WR-TE-PK-DEF with no reception points or flex. Thought it was a better one than my first with fewer players falling and less picks that surprised me. Rodgers at 1.02 was early IMO. This year seems to be all about RB in round one and all about WR in round two. I drafted 12th and started with McCoy and Beckham since I did not like the RBs still there. I wanted to go Gordon and Gurley with my next two picks but Gordon went right before me so I opted for Gurley and Brees as a safe play.

I'm a Denver fan and can't tell you who will end up being the starting back. I don't know how it doesn't scare some of these guys off of drafting Anderson so early. Does anyone remember Steve Slaton? Not saying that will be Anderson, but a RB can go from being very relevant to a ghost very quickly. Kubiak has done it before.

At least in a best ball, you can grab Montee Ball for insurance. There is no way that Ronnie Hillman will become the primary.

I would have been hoping for forte and been slightly disappointed with shady but he does have a higher ceiling. 2nd pic tho I would have snagged Luck no question! ODB could be OGB(oss) but not a lock and teams will definitely be scouting/sending extra help against him. Luck is a sure fire top 10-15 overall fantasy player no question

Drafting 12th means either grabbing someone who has fallen - did not really happen much in this draft - or sometimes taking a position. I had planned on taking a QB with my 3/4 swing since most drafts see them fall that far. I still had a choice between Manning or Brees. I knew WR would go in round two and had I not taken one there I would have missed on the first 16 drafted. I was happier with the #3 QB and my #2 WR than a #2 QB and a #17 WR.

I thought about WR-WR but it was non-PPR and RBs would have been stripped with the next 22 picks before I went again. If it was PPR I would have probably gone WR-WR.

This was my resulting team - I like to mix high upside/risk with solid but only moderately productive when I do best ball. I won this league last year.

Good call on broncos D, I like them this year. They got playmakers in Von miller and ware along with other solid players and Shane Ray if he comes back strong. All that and the broncos moving to more run heavy means they won't be putting up 40 points fast so their D ends up giving up points to teams airing it out while they play conservative.
