Who was your first round pick? Honestly I would stay away from Freeman. I just don't like have split workloads between RBs (him and Coleman)

 

It was freeman, but im not a fan of the other backs that are available which are murray howard ajayi and gordon, Yea freeman will lose carries to coleman, but he still had 1000 yards and 11 tds

 

Murray always seems to have a good season then a bad season and henry will most likely get more carries and I also think the titans will want mariota to throw more

 

howard is stuck on a bad team that will probably end up playing from behind more often then not

 

ajayi did have a good season, but that was only one season and I dont trust using my first pick on him

 

Gordon I wouldnt mind taking, but Id prefer freeman being in a more explosive offense.

Ya I agree with you for those same reasons. Bell might even lose some carries according to their coach. The only backs I would take in the first round are DJ, Zeke, Bell, and Gordon in that order. Gordon was a top 3-5 back until he got hurt. Now they have an improved line and offense so he could be even better.

Non ppr. I took fournette. I like the potential and he'll easily get 20-25 touches

Whoa,  No way I'm taking him that early.  I don't think he is a top 10 back.  Only because of the team he is on

Problem is if I don't take him at that spot, I won't get him at all and I already listed my issues with the other backs I can get at the same spot. Jags have enough talent to atleast still be in games where fournette will still get touches

I'm always weary of rookies early.  Elliott last year I took early because of the boys oline.  I would take an elite proven wr before any of the other backs you mentioned being available

Alright. I'm going to be blunt because that's how it is in the Fantasy Football Advice Chat I'm a part of on Facebook is. I am not a fan of this draft at all. Fournette at 11 is much to early, Jarvis Landry is really only a viable option in PPR, and Brandin Cooks is a huge question mark. Both TEs are boom or bust, and your bench isn't very supportive. I do like both QBs you took, but in most drafts you should only take one. Also, never take multiple defenses, but I do like both which you took and think the Broncos D could be great Trade Bait as well as one of your QBs. It's a rough looking bunch, but you have a lot of trade pieces to work with! Good Luck Brother!!!

Thank you for your advice. Much appreciate. Unfortunately I can't help my wrs. Those are the best I can get if I take fournette at 11. I really want him and I can't get him if I don't take him at that spot. Landry and cooks are not 1s, but they are serviceable. I take two QBs to make up not taking a top tier QB and go with the best match-up. Same with my defense. Cook I actually think has s lot of potential if he can win the job over Murray and hill is now the top target in KC with maclin gone. Moncrief and blount are beasts in the red zone

Does anyone else play in dynasty leagues? I have the 4th pick in our startup draft and I'm trying to decide if I'd rather go with Le'veon Bell or a young WR like Mike Evans. I'm leaning towards Evans since he will last longer and doesn't have the past injury issues that Bell has had.

 

But I also really don't want to be weak at RB either. Some later targets at RB if I go WR early will probably be Ty Montgomery, Isaiah Crowell, Tevin Coleman, and a few promising rookies like Marlon Mack, Kareem Hunt, and Elijah McGuire. 

 

It's also a 2 QB dynasty league so I'm sure QBs will go much earlier than usual. So if I want Luck or Rodgers I'd probably have to draft them in the 2nd round. Guys like Winston, Mariota, and Carr will probably go shortly after that.

Is this a PPR league? I am not in love with your runningbacks, but could be swayed, because of who you picked first.

 

You HAVE to nail your first two picks. If you take Freeman then as your league mate I am happy. He will be good but you won't get enough value at that draft position. It's all about value. If you had a David Johnson, definitely take a chance on Cook, Fournette, McCaffrey, but I don't love your RB group.

 

In my 12 team league last year, I got David Johnson w the 4th pick, a great pick. I didn't select another RB until 5th round (Gore), 7th (Deangelo Williams - got me 3 wins in the 3 weeks Bell was out, then I was able to release him when he got injured), and 9th (Theo Riddick). Grabbed Montgomery later in the year.

 

I can't hate it too much though, because I like the rest of your team. Doyle and Bennett should be pretty good this year and looks like you got a lot of value based on when you drafted him judging by your other positions.

 

Carr and Wilson is a fun tandem at QB as well, although IMO why waste higher picks on them when you can get better value elsewhere? If you have an not-quite-Elite QB don't pick two who are around the same level that high. You are losing value elsewhere.

 

My suggestion is grab the higher of Carr or Wilson then wait until the end of the draft and grab a Cousins, Tyrod Taylor, Jameis Winston, Prescott. Last year I got Cousins in the 10th and Stafford in the 14th and won the league bc they both ended in the top 10 (Cousins 5, Prescott 6, Stafford 7) but my first four picks were Johnson, Jordy, Mike Evans, Greg Olsen. I nailed the top of the draft and filled the rest of the team with value picks like Cousins and Riddick.

You may have to wait till September 3rd, when all the forum posters that participate in the same drafts are done with theirs. I for one don't want to share my thoughts on players I am leaning towards prior to the draft, can't speak for others. :)

We all have different opinions on how to draft but IMO having two QBs is just like hand cuffing. If you lose your starting QB due to an injury you then don't have much of a chance to win. Plus you do have to cover the bye week. If you have two QBs then it can help you with matchups also.

    • We probably do differ there.  If I was around someone I knew found taking my socks off was offensive, I'm not sure why they would, but I would probably avoid it.  The same way I would avoid dropping an F bomb in public.  It is really just a matter of trying to be respectful of others if I knew of someone the didn't like the sound of knuckles cracking, even though I don't think it's a big deal and I do crack my knuckles, I would try not to do it around that person.   To the larger point of the kneeling, even though it brings attention to their cause, it is negative attention to many because of the perceived disrespectfulness of the act.  I and I doubt I am alone in this, will not engage in useful dialogue with someone that just did something that they knew was going to offend me.
    • That's not what's wrong with the country   Words evolve and have power.  Used to be that the 'diagnosis' for a developmental disability had a scale that included *, imbecile etc.  It was right to stop using them just as it's offensive to call someone a #. I agree that homophobic speech is wrong although I don't listen to that rapper so, I don't know what you are talking about.   I think focusing on who is a hypocrite doesn't get us closer to solving the problem anyway.   I'm fine with the NFL's policy.  But, the problem is not going away
    • The term "fight" is material.  IIRC, I don't think there was any threat of violence, which there typically is in a schoolyard use of the term bully.     If bullying is about words and name calling, then I think constantly talking smack can be seen as a form of bullying, but that's regarded as "getting in your opponents head" by some standards.   But Richie has been a known element since his college days.  Apparently, he is a high maintenance personality that could be controlled with some sense of structure and purpose in his life, that some teams have chosen to deal with for exchange of good play on the field.  Seems like its catching up with him and he's heading over the edge as he gets older.  And he appears to be getting more randomly violent, towards simple objects at this point.  I don't think he is someone anybody should be around.
