    I got 12th in my draft, how about you?

    I am thinking for 12/13 I may go Devonta Freeman/Lamar miller or Freeman/Gronk or Miller/Gronk based on who is available and etc. what do you think? Gurley, cooper and Jordy nelson are options too, I am assuming most of the top ten players including melvin gordon are gone.

    Offense
    No new player Notes
    David Johnson Ari - RB

    Le'Veon Bell Pit - RB


    Antonio Brown Pit - WR

    Ezekiel Elliott Dal - RB

    Odell Beckham Jr. NYG - WR

    Mike Evans TB - WR

    LeSean McCoy Buf - RB

    Julio Jones Atl - WR

    Melvin Gordon LAC - RB

    Jordan Howard Chi - RB

    Jay Ajayi Mia - RB

    A.J. Green Cin - WR

    Devonta Freeman Atl - RB

    Jordy Nelson GB - WR

    Michael Thomas NO - WR

    DeMarco Murray Ten - RB

    Leonard Fournette Jax - RB

    T.Y. Hilton Ind - WR

    Dez Bryant Dal - WR

    Doug Baldwin Sea - WR

    Lamar Miller Hou - RB

    Todd Gurley LAR - RB

    Isaiah Crowell Cle - RB

    I'm picking 6th in a 10 team PPR League. If I were you...I'd go Freeman/Cooper or Jordy...if still available. Gronk you can't trust for injury reasons...and Miller will see stacked boxes since they have a raw rookie QB. I'm avoiding Gurley too since Goff sucks and all teams will do is just focus on stopping Gurley.

    Wow, I just saw the texans QBs...lol....

    To counter, he had an ok year last year with terrible QBs too. A big problem I am having is I see WR as a position that is very important but at the same time, very deep. I do not see a massive drop off in points from say amari Cooper to then a 2nd round WR. I see RB as a position where you have 7-12 guys and the rest are purely average so I typically go RB back to back in drafts but im not so sure I will this year. It depends on how everyone else picks at the beginning. Once you get to round 2 and round 3 running backs, the pickins are VERY slim.

    Gronk I agree on but at the same time, if he stays healthy, he should be in the top 5 picks so its kind of a boom or bust pick. If I dont take him, he will not be around the next chance I get.

    I feel the same about Gurley.

    Hopefully Gordon and Freeman are both available when I pick, I would be elated.

    Miller did have an ok year, but not a late 1st/top 2nd ok year...more like a 3rd or 4th round ok year...but maybe with a running QB like Watson that will open up some holes for him, since he is a good RB. Last year...Jordy scored more points than Freeman and Gordon, so you have to take the value when it's there. But you're right...after the 1st 5 or 6 top WR's are gone...it levels out pretty evenly...where as with RB...there's a pretty hefty drop. I'm probably taking a top WR 1st round, focus on 2 #1 RB's in 2, and 3, and then stack my WR's after that. Larry scored more points last year than Cooper and you can grab him in the 5th round...doesn't make sense, but I'll take it!

    Jordy is one that leaps out at me. I wrote him off as after his injury things changed but I guess he is back to form. Thanks for your points, I am just now starting my research into what I will be doing and some of this was useful for me :)

    Don't be scared of rookie RB's either...Fournette, and Mccaffrey should both have great years. If Mccaffrey is there in the 4th/5th for you...take him. He's going to get a ton of touches and the dude kills it in the open field. He should have more points than a 3rd round WR this year...just a hunch.

    Fournette will be the #1 RB in Jacksonville...he'll have a good year since he won't have any competition. And Mccaffrey will be the #1 back in Carolina...who has a good run blocking O-Line and he's going to be one of the best RB receivers in the league right off the bat. He'll have TD's stolen by Cam and Stewart though...but he'll get a ton of yards and receptions.

    Interesting. Carolina is more intriguing but he does have more competition. Good to know.

    I got lucky and got the first overall pick and (hopefully) got lucky again that everyone else passed twice on Zeke. We'll see what happens with that, but I tried to get some options to replace him if he's out for a while.
