How long would you wait to get Andrew Luck in fantasy draft?

Recommended Posts

Andrew Luck is always on my team and the problem is that my fantasy team name is based on Luck (Which is worse if i dont draft him). There dont seem to be any Colts fans in our prize league on NFL Fantasy. NFL Fantasy website has a mock draft going for Luck at Round 14. I dont wanna go that far, it's too risky.

 

My 1st round pick aim is to go for Laveon Bell, then Gronkowski or Matt Ryan (I have a real feeling Matt Ryan is going to come back very angry.) in the second, and Demarco Murray in the 3rd. How would you go about this?

 

I know its hard to resist but i always like Luck and TY Hilton on my team...

Using fandom on your fantasy team is not the way to win it. Taking any QB before at least getting a top RB and WR is risky. If you take Ryan then you don't draft another QB till the end rounds of your draft. There is only 20 or 30 points from the top QB to the last starting QB on the year.

That's a bad strategy, outside of the first round. Go WRs and RBs first. I would wait until Round 6 or 7, unless you're drafting against a Colts fan.

Usually what ill do if someone takes the good runningbacks in the first round is ill pick up 2 good quarterbacks so i can use them for ransom when the guys with the runningbacks need a qb. LOL.

 

Theres not that many good RBs nowadays that put up big numbers. Alot of teams use alot of 1-2 punches. Maybe even 3 runningbacks. Like the Patriots are not dependable with RBs.

If that is the case then the guys you are playing with don't know how to draft. I think in my last draft I drafted Dak Prescott and Cam Newton in the 6th and 7t round after I drafted my RBs and WRs plus drafting Gronk. That was in a 12 team draft too.

I won't comment on the strategy of this as it seems like it's already been covered, but to answer your original question, I grabbed Luck as my backup last night in late round 11.

    • Everyone forgets that Brissett is still learning. He got thrown to the wolves last year with no history with the team and becoming an immediate starter. MOST players would struggle badly in that situation, Jimmy G. excepted. He learned a great deal last year and will be better this year. The offensive play calling HAS to be better this year as does the O-line. He’ll be fine. Pick some other target. 
    • But a team might evaluate their own O line and it just might not be as good as our revamped line.  Thus, last years performance under pressure is on tape, and telling.     Draft QB's in round 1 are cheap, and you control them for a minimum of 5 years.  The price for starting QB's (even unproven) not on a rookie contract are astronomical.     Draft QB's in round 1 are cheap, and you control them for a minimum of 5 years.  Backup QB's are often 2nd and 3rd day picks, have some NFL experience and teams have a fairly decent (yet not perfect) grasp of their ceiling.  JB has much work to develop more than Jimmy Garopolo has.
    • He holds the ball too long and is slow to recognize when a WR is coming open.   Some of that is because he was hammered every play. AND... he has a slow release.   I hope he develops into a great backup........  but I would also say, my confidence, until he proves quite a bit more, is lacking
    • Brissett will be better than last year.  Its surprising how everyone forgets he was running for his life every play.  Even Andrew struggled with that pressure... all QBs do.  Brissett will be much better with a year's experience under his belt and an OL that can protect him. other GMs know this and it WILL affect his value.  The way teams spend on unproven QBs, i can see a team or two offering a 2nd or 3rd.  Heck, the Jets gave up 3 to move up only 3 spots to land an unproven QB.  And they really didnt even know WHICH unproven QB they would get.  Some teams get desperate for a starting QB, as we have seen over and over. if we dont get the trade we want, use him until FA in  2 years. i think, under the circumstances (which were stacked against him), Brissett performed better than people give him credit for.
    • If I’m a GM I say one thing.. ‘Good lord no.’   He’s a garbage person.
