How tf did you get Mixon and Drake in rounds 2/3..

10 team 2 qb league, plus we drafted in like early July. Mixon was a high 2nd. Early run on top qbs pushed some of the fringe rb1's down into rounds 2 and 3.

He's an integral part of an elite offense in a division with average defenses.  There will be shootouts galore for the Cardinals.  His floor has been solid as has the amount of work he's seen in two games with two very different game scripts.  There will come a point where teams crack down on Kyler's scrambling and it's possible Drake gets an uptick in dump offs and Kyler's long scrambles.  Plus Drake dominated the touches after a somewhat concerning week one where Edmonds had more of a role than expected.

Buy low opportunity, especially with the trash Lions defense next.  He should feast

It baffles me that anyone would ever talk to a real football player about their fantasy football production.  These guys are world class athletes making millions of dollars playing a team sport to try to win games and championships.  Why should they care about your 10 team PPR work league?

When I know I am going to meet an NFL player, I look up some stuff before-hand about their life that they might be interested in talking about.  Earl Thomas growing up in tiny Orange, Texas, or Cooper Kupp getting faster after his knee surgery.  It works pretty well, actually.

You guys should try it some time.

And, in fantasy this year, Drake is going to JUST FINE.

The man has spoken. 

Not worried in the slightest, have ya'll seen Arizona play. The big games will come sooner than later

The carries have been there 16 in week 1 .. and 20 yesterday. 

More targets would definitely be nice, barely averaging 2 per game.

Yah, just don't get the panic on this one.  If weeks 1 and 2 are his floor games, you are in really good shape.  

Looking at his game log LY, he had monster games mixed in with some duds.  

I would be buying here if there are any iffy Drake owners in your leagues.

I rather ask Thomas about his relationship with his brother but that's just me.

I'd rather have Drake

 

The 10pt floor with frequent upside for 20-30pt weeks is what a first round fantasy talent should be. 


Agreed, and I'm actually trying to get Drake, but I'm not sure if I should offer Evans or Julio Jones. (Asst coach post was unanswered lol)

There are cases where Drake is someone's RB2, which seems like the sweet spot for a trade offer.

If someone has a high-end RB1 as their RB2, why would they want to trade that player for a WR1?  That makes no sense to me.

Evans but if the owner is worried, then you can try for less?

 

That’s absurd what idiot is letting Drake go for Evans . I wouldn't even do it for Julio

Because they need help at WR...?

Ok I'll spell it out. So-and-so has Sutton, Woods and Fuller. And Kamara and Drake. I trade them Evans for Drake. Helps us both.
