I feel like it's a no brainer CMAC, Barkley, Zeke order this year. 

I'm at #2, and am considering Zeke, because he's on a much better offense...but not sure I could handle a season where barkley goes off and I got too smart for my own good.

 

 

 

how can you say the cowboy offense is better than the saints?

I see this thread deteriorated in a sort of "rate my draft" thread, but when I originally saw the title I thought of something else. My interpretation of the question was: how does picking in early,

It's sickening what a top 3 pick can stack with this season

If Henry doesn't go at 4 or 5 then you hit the lottery.

What site are you mocking on?  I haven't had jones come anywhere near my 2nd round pick on ESPN. 

After going through about 10 mocks today I'm going 1 of 2 ways in my 12 team league:

 

Way 1:

1-Zeke/Barkley

2-Kelce or Kittle

3-Gurley

4-Connor or Cupp

5-Cupp or  Keenan or DK

6) Deebo/Crowder

Way 2:

1-Zeke/Barkley

2-Hill/Gurley

3-Gurley/Connor

4-Cupp/Allen

5-Allen or DK

6) Waller or KMurray or Dwatson (only got him once though)

 

After pick 17 or 18 this year there is nothing at RB and I'm not wild about the WR's besides Hill who I only got 2/10 times.  I'll probably get torched for drafting both Gurley and Connor but I can handcuff Conner with Snell for cheap and if I get 10 good games out of Gurley I think I will be able to maneuver. 

 

I never go TE or QB early but am open to it this year because i think its going to be a cluster **** regardless so figured I might as well try some new stuff out.

 

nfl.com....i will post again later today with my most recent result...kelce an kittle are usually gone by the time i draft in rd 2...id rather go rb or wr though...there are a few TEs you can draft this year so to me its big to gamble on as many rbs as you can

I have pick 3 in a 12 team 1/2 ppr.  Definitely going RB in round 1 but not sure what to do after. I'm thinking the following-

 

WR/WR - something like OBJ/Godwin  .  Having 2 top 12 options at WR  paired with a stud RB would be a solid starting team.

WR/TE - i'm sure one of Kittle/Kelce will be there.  Gives me a stud at 3 positions plus draft flexibility.  

RB/WR - taking a guy like Carson/Connor .  I like having RB depth, but I also like stacking up on mid-round RB's, so it compromises my starters at the other positions to go RB in round 2/3, and then take RB every other round.   

Really confused here

Interesting. I have the 6th pick too. Were Drake or Eckler there at 19? 

I'm interested in what running backs you ended up with from the later rounds. I'm thinking it is easier to get higher upside WR's in the later rounds of the draft. But maybe you found some gems in the later rounds.

No. The best RBs at 19 left were like Carson, Conner, Gurley, Bell, or Johnson. There’s just no way one of them is worth a pick that high.

I drafted Breida, K. Johnson, Mattison, Edmonds, McFarland, J. Jackson, and Armstead. You’re right that it’s easier to get upside WRs because all the really good upside RBs are gone by like pick 70 but the draft fell in such a way where drafting RBs in the early rounds just wasn’t the move.

Sean Koerner’s RB draft strategy is if you don’t get a high enough pick to get a tier 1 RB, try and take two of the tier 2 RB and avoid that third tier entirely. In the later rounds, load up on lottery tickets like you did with a chance of striking gold with one of them.

for those picking 11/12 in ppr, any rbs you see targeting in the 3/4 round turn?

I have the 11th pick in my 12 team ppr. The RBs that I have been targeting are Connors, Gurley, and Carson. If those are gone I usually go with WR/WR at the 3/4 turn.

david johnson and chris carson.

both are in that territory, and although carson won't get a wad of targets i'd take him over other nearby handy RBs (melvin gordon, lev bell, mark ingram).

gurley was there in may / june but is now closer to the 2/3 turn, not the 3/4. connor has the talent and hands and offensive line, but handcuffing with benny snell seems a must at this point.

1.03 = zeke or barkley

2.10 = godwin or golladay for WRs, kittle is also a good pick; kelce should be gone by 2.10. ekeler and aaron jones might linger and both are good gets. kenyan drake has dropped to this range with his current "nicks and bruises"

3.03 = kenyan drake if the nicks and bruises drop him to the 3rd; mike evans (current adp is 3.01), gurley, chris carson, dj moore.

i like OBJ if the value is right, but i'd draft any of these guys over him -- 3.03 is a little early.

I have pick #5 in a 12 team PPR league.

My general strategy:

1) Load up on RBs early/late. I want to have 7-8 RBs on the roster.

2) Get TE advantage with Kittle/Kelce in round 2 at pick 20.

3) Take advantage of WR depth in mid rounds.

4) Wait till round 10 for QB or later and just stream QBs.

Have done several mocks and this is usually landing me this type of roster:

* QB: M. Ryan (or Ryan, Stafford, Wentz...fine).

* RB: A. Kamara, J. Conner, R. Jones (or Mostert), Z. Moss, L. Murray (Kamara insurance), D. Harris, S. Michelle, B. Snell (Conner insurance).

* WR: AJ Brown, T. McLaurin, W. Fuller, C. Samuel. (No WR till round 4)

* TE: G. Kittle

* Defense: Pitt or Buffalo (who starts the season with two cream puffs).

I’m 7/12 in PPR. I’m really warming up to going Mahomes/Kelce and then two WR like Moore and Kupp in 3/4. Take Hunt in the 5th and load up on lottery ticket RB and PPR specialists in the late rounds. All you need to do is hit on one RB that emerges as a stud due to injury or performance.

ive looked at doing this at the 11 pick in my ppr.  love the idea, but you really start in a hole at both wr and rb.  need to have a perfect draft, or as you mention, hit the lottery on a couple of late round picks....

12 teams Picked 5 PPR in my first draft got Kamara. 2nd rd all of the rbs I wanted were gone and Kelce so I went with Hopkins. In the 3rd is the spot you can get a guy like Carson Gurley Bell as your RB2. I got Chris. In the 4th I got David Johnson for depth.

I have the 7th pick in 10 teamer and forecast Henry, CEH, and rest of tier 2 backs available. I just cannot bring myself drafting Henry in PPR. Anybody really likes Henry in PPR?

Had a 10 team ppr draft last night. CEH went 7 & Henry went 8. I like Henry in a ppr league, regardless if the targets are there or not. I had pick 10 & drafted D Cook, then Mixon. GL in your draft!

I had the 9th pick in a draft last night and was dead set on going rb-rb, until the first 8 picks were RB so Michael Thomas was sitting there.  Go RB early from any spot if you can (as the RBs thin out like crazy) but don’t ignore value when it presents itself.

Picking 12/12 in 0.5 PPR does it make the most sense to target 2 out of Jacobs/Sanders/Drake/Ekeler then going WR/WR at the 3/4 turn or getting 1 of those RBs and Julio/Tyreek at the 1/2 turn?

I’d go RB-RB if Michael Thomas and Davante are gone.  I’d much rather have cooper kupp/DJ Moore/Robert woods than the RBs available in the 3rd/4th turn

Had the 11th pick in my 12 team full ppr league. Went with CEH and Ekeler then DJ Moore and Ridley.
