Drafted David Johnson

Recommended Posts

If you drafted David Johnson either 1 or 2, I'm interested to see what you did to over come that loss? I'm 0-5 currently. I haven't found a replacement for him yet and I have had bad luck all season long. My players don't score the week I play them. What's worse is, I'm the TWO time defending champ. I'm eating so much crow this year..

When did you draft Fournette? My deal is.. I always like QB's first. Everyone tells me that's bad.. I don't know what to think. I wanted Rodgers badly but my buddies no my love for him and stole him just so I didn't get him (jerk ha). But at least you know with QB's who's gonna score points for the year. RB's are too wishy washy for me.

 

Top 3 pre draft RB's

David Johnson

Le'veon Bell

LeSean McCoy

 

Top 3 guys now

Kareem Hunt

Todd Gurley

Lennord Fournette

 

who would've drafted these guys that high??

I took him in the 2nd round lol I knew he would be great I'm a huge fan of his plus in my draft everyone took backs really early they were almost gone lol I took Freeman in the 1st round

I drafted David Johnson, but I also picked up Kareem hunt immediately after Spencer Ware got hurt and then traded for Leonard Fournette right after David Johnson got hurt for the year, so I'm currently 4-1. It sucks losing David Johnson, but you also shouldn't be taking QB's early, the average points scored between an elite QB and average QB in fantasy is very minuscule. The only exception IMO, is in a 2 QB league. The difference between the elite RB's and the average RB's are much higher. You made the right decision, you just got a horrible result. So when something like this happens, you have to trade from a position of strength for a position of weakness (RB). You should also be going for a high upside option. I took Fournette, if it worked, I'm whole again, if not, I was going to lose anyway.

This may have worked out for you but that don't work out so easy when you are in a 12 team league. The draft order changes every week to where the #1 pick goes to last place team automatically.

True.

 

In my neighborhood league, everyone is on auto draft. It is a few newbies and a few vets.

 

So, in my pre-draft settings, outside the obvious first round backs, I placed Kareem Hunt and Leonard Fournette in my top 15, so ended up with David Johnson in the 1st, Leonard Fournette in the second and Kareem Hunt in the third. Hence I am sitting pretty at 5-0 in that league. I got Dak Prescott and Carson Wentz as my QBs and it has turned out just fine for me. :)

Whether it's been AP, Doug Martin, etc. I have a history of my 1st round RB being hurt in the first few weeks.  I think this is the first year in a while where my 1st-rd RB is actually still healthy at this point.  (Knock on wood, Devonta Freeman)

 

I was glad I didn't have the #1 overall pick.  If I did, I was probably gonna take Antonio Brown just to be safe.

 

I have trust issues with drafting RBs in the top-5...

Dang...sorry...had those years. Man I scour the waiver wires week to week. If its a VERY competitive well informed league a couple injuries will pretty much crush you. All you can do is try to just get into the playoffs and then get lucky for those two weeks. If not I look for matchups week to week....try to anticipate players that might benefit if a guy goes down. Lets be honest mostly the guys on your bench outside 1 or 2 rarely make your starting lineup. Thus I stash guys that I think might blow up later in the season or if an injury occurs. Your never going to make up for a David Johnson type loss but you can still get quality points from guys on the waiver depending on their matchups....don't be afraid to go after them. You might look at a guy like McKinnon who is filling in for Cook....a guy like Ingram who now should get a lot more extra carries with AP gone. Sure he won't run as much in NO but he will get likely all the goal line carries now. Maybe stash away a backup in case a main runner goes down like say Tevin Coleman. Doug Martin was out there in a lot of leagues I stashed him away and I think he will have a good second half. Its going to be tough man...at this point don't be afraid to make bold moves...bench starters that you normally wouldn't in favor of a guy with a great matchup...got nothing to lose.

Its hard to say. I draft any rb in a good system that is expected to start. I will say week 1 I had Gurley and Hunt on my bench though....got them in rounds 4 and 5. I never draft a qb in the first 5 rounds. I still end up with a Drew Brees or a Philip Rivers or a Matt Ryan etc. QBs, TEs, Def, and Ks.....all at the end. Depending on the board I've taken RB in 3 of the first 4 rounds with great success. Just stuff your bench with RBs and a couple Wrs. I have no backup qb no backup def or kicker etc. If I like my matchup I'll just start a guy on his bye even or I'll drop a guy at the end of my bench to get one off the waiver to fill in. Last week with Brees out I picked up Watson and he got me like 35 pts. There are always a qb on the waiver wire that will at least get you 15pts minimum. Don't waste your time holding onto these extra players that will only play 1 week out of the year....go out and scoop up guys with high upsides say if there is an injury...or heck even rookies...you rookies are usually slow to get going but as they learn more get more opportunities as the season progresses. Sounds like what you have done works though...you've won your league many times...maybe just a bad luck season...happens.

The Waiver is very competitive.. But I just have the Hex on me this year. I picked up J. Allen a month ago.. he crapped on me for 2 straight weeks.. I dropped him before they played the Raiders....

The thing with FF is, you have to be patient but if you cannot be, you better be sure about the guy you are picking up on a whim. It doesn't always work out but a bird in hand is better than one in the bush. 

 

In 2 leagues, I drafted Jamison Crowder and Tyrell Williams. In the beginning of the year, you'd think those would be good picks. But now, those are colossal busts. I drop Tyrell Williams adopting the 3-strikes and you are out for a player drafted rounds 9 or later (my philosophy is 3 bad weeks and that player is out, especially if I did not draft them for starting every week), and then he goes off vs the Eagles. Then, he is back to sucking again.

 

You have to think of it as a stock that you sold for a small profit or a small loss. It may go up after you sold it but there is NOTHING to be gained by looking at those results, in a revisionist fashion, absolutely NOTHING. Just take solace in the fact that there are thousands or probably more in FF that have faced situations like yours. Don't get worked up about it and keep your chin up. :)

Lol it's okay I swapped Murray for McKinnon as soon as Waivers came. So that was good. Hyde actually showed up. So I got good RB production yesterday. BUUUUT. The saints scored 52 points yesterday. Drew Brees and Michaels Thomas combined scored 16 points for me hahaha. So yes, I'm up 5  and facing D.Walker. and with Mariota back i'm cooked lol.. better luck next year!

Hahaha I always tell my buddies fantasy football is sooo stressful! Every game has someone who "can't" and someone who "has" to score. You're either jumping for joy. Or extremely *. It's such a bad addiction :lol:

I know. I took a 5 point lead against my opponent when Antonio Brown scored in a lucky bounce vs the Chiefs. Then, in garbage time, Patrick Peterson leaves with an injury and they go to Mike Evans who had been contained since then but he is now guarded by Justin Bethel, and that TD gives my opponent a 5 point lead for the win. 

 

All the shoulda woulda coulda comes into place then. :) You have to gain some strength with losing instead of feeling sorry for yourself, just like in life. Too much time spent on feeling sorry for yourself gives you nothing in return.

I'm in a small 8 team auction league. My roster was built around David Johnson, OBJ, and Zeke Elliot. Needless to say my team did not make the playoffs this season. The joys of Fantasy football!

It sucked. I drafted him #1. I had no replacement really. I rolled with 2 RB2s and searched the waiver wire. I found Collins, but probably shouldn't have dropped him. Managed to go 8-5 with the rest of my team so it's not all bad.

    • "Obsession to finish." That is Frank Reich's motto,  right?* did you like how I through that "right" in there just like Frank, lol.    There's good traits about Nelson. One mentioned by superman above, is that he picks his teammates up almost obsessively. But the only trait that I care about with Nelson, and certainly the rest of the o-line and team for that matter, is that they have an obsession to finish. Nelson has it. He's obviously buying into the organization and what they stand for, and what the coaching staff brings to the table. If he continues having an obsession to finish, specifically with his ability to finish, he is going to dominate this league for many years to come. 
    • I didnt think they would. It would just continue to draw out the saga. NFL really needs too restructure the tag, it can be incredibly unfair
    • 1. Arizona: Nick Bosa DE Ohio State Cardinals grab the best player in the draft. Unless they decide to move on from Rosen, Bosa will be the pick at number one. Pairing him up with Chandler Jones creates a dynamic pass rushing duo. 2. San Francisco: Josh Allen OLB Kentucky Their OLBs are highlighted by Dekoda Watson, Brock Coyle, and Malcolm Smith. Allen is an EDGE player that the 49ers are in desperate need of. Allen is the defensive playmaker they need after an underwhelming performance from Solomon Thomas and with Reuben Foster gone. 3. NY Jets: Quinnen Williams DE Alabama MikeKirsch's comments:The only notable DL under contract for the Jets is Leonard Williams. Adding a second Williams is the best move for the Jets at 3. 4. Oakland: Rashan Gary DE Michigan The Raiders need a better pass rush. If they had a player like Kahlil Mack last year their pass rush would have been better. The Raiders ranked dead last with 13 sacks last year. The Giants, 31st in sacks, had 30. To put that into comparison further, Mack had 12.5 sacks. Gary has the physical tools to play inside or on the edge. 5. Tampa Bay: Jonah Williams OT Alabama With the continued emphasis on the high passing attack with Arians, a solid pass protector will be needed on a regular basis. Williams can play both G and T. 6. NY Giants: Dwayne Haskins QB Ohio State The Giants need to address QB sooner than later. Manning is not getting younger and he is not getting better. Manning is still serviceable and Haskins can sit a year under Manning. 7. Jacksonville: Cody Ford OG Oklahoma Jacksonville gave up the 3rd most sacks in the NFL with 53. I'm making this selection under the impression that the Jags acquire Nick Foles. Ford can play both T or G and improve this O-line.  8. Detroit: Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson EDGE and TE are the most pressing needs for Detroit. I expect them to go EDGE here as Ansah is probably gone after an underwhelming season under the franchise tag. 9. Buffalo: Ed Oliver DT Houston With Kyle Williams retiring and Lotuleilei having an average season and will be 30 when the season is over, Bills need to grab a young, promising DT. Once viewed as a potential number one pick in this draft, Oliver is still a very solid player that should be picked in the top 10.  10. Denver: Greedy Williams CB LSU Chris Harris Jr turns 30 in June and Bradley Roby is a free agent. Even if Roby is brought back, Williams would still be a good move for the Broncos to solidify the secondary. A QB is possible here, but I don't expect them to go QB until next year since Flacco still has 2 years on his contract. 11. Cincinnati: Drew Lock QB Missouri Might be a slightly surprising pick here, but I think it's time for the Bengals to start fresh with a new QB. Dalton just hasn't gotten it done for them for the past 8 years. With Dalton turning 32 in October and with 4 winless postseason appearances, new HC Zac Taylor gets a new QB to work with after working with Jared Goff. 12. Green Bay: Jachai Polite DE Florida GB needs to strengthen their pass rush. Polite has explosive pass rush skills with great speed. Clay Matthews is in a decline and it's time to find his replacement. 13. Miami: Kyler Murray QB Oklahoma Tannehill has been average for the majority of his career, along with injuries. Miami will look to start fresh at QB with the Heisman winner. I don't think Murray will have any major struggles with his size.  14. Atlanta: Christian Wilkins DT Clemson Even if Grady Jarrett comes back, Wilkins is a solid pick to pair him up with Jarrett. Wilkins was a consistent 4 year starter at Clemson and can become another young defensive force for ATL like Jarrett, Jones, McKinley, and Neal. 15. Washington: Daniel Jones QB Duke Alex Smith may never play another down in the NFL. Some said this about Luck, but Smith's injury is far more severe and turns 35 in May. Jones had a great Senior Bowl by winning MVP and should be able to take over the Washington offense. 16. Carolina: Montez Sweat DE Mississippi State Had off the field issues in 2016 when he was dismissed from Michigan State, but had a great senior bowl week and had solid interviews. Carolina needs to replace the future HOF Peppers. Sweat is a good add for the EDGE. 17. Cleveland: Devin White ILB LSU Cleveland's offense had a very good year with Mayfield leading the way. However, their defense was not very good. Browns need to add a defensive playmaker like they did last year with Denzel Ward. White is a 3 down LB that makes this defense better. 18. Minnesota: Greg Little OT Mississippi The Vikings need a solid T to give their $83 million QB a better opportunity. Little is an upgrade to their offensive line.  19. Tennessee: D.K. Metcalf WR Mississippi Titans need another WR opposite Corey Davis for Mariota. Metcalf has incredible size for a WR and is a big play threat. 20. Pittsburgh: Mack Wilson ILB Alabama Steelers need to add an ILB to fill the void of Shazier. Wilson will be a good player alongside Vince Williams. 21. Seattle: Byron Murphy CB Washington Seattle adds another CB to their duo of Flowers and Griffin. Murphy is an aggressive CB with good ball skills that will fit in the slot in the Seattle secondary. 22. Baltimore: Marquise Brown WR Oklahoma Ravens need to add a WR for Lamar Jackson to throw to. Crabtree didn't live up to his 3 year/$21 Million contract. John Brown and Willie Snead had decent numbers but can be upgraded. Brown has elite speed and is a dynamic deep threat. 23. Houston: Jawaan Taylor OT Florida Texans gave up the most sacks in the NFL with 62. They are in desperate need of solid pass protectors and Taylor will help bring those sacks allowed down. 24. Oakland: N’Keal Harry WR Arizona State Gruden replaces Amari Cooper with N'Keal Harry. Gruden gets a big WR (6'3" 216 lb) that has great hands combined with elite acceleration and breakaway speed. 25. Philadelphia: Dexter Lawrence DT Clemson Eagles could use a CB as well, but DT is a more pressing need that Lawrence meets. 26. Indianapolis: Dre’Mont Jones DT Ohio State DL is a big need for the Colts. Jones has rare athletic skills such as range and flexibility. Very good pass rush skills. Run defense needs improvement but is a great athletic DT that can rush the QB. 27. Oakland: Josh Jacobs RB Alabama Gruden gets his second offensive toy with Jacobs. Lynch turns 33 and will be a free agent. With Chris Warren III and DeAndre Washington as the only RBs under contract for now, Jacobs is a solid piece to revamp the Raider's rushing attack. 28. LA Chargers: Devin Bush Jr. ILB Michigan DL is also a need, but the Chargers could use more quality LBs. Nwoso had a good finish to the end of the year, but more talent is needed at the position. Bush is on the smaller side at 5'11" 230 lb, but has three down LB skills that are comparable to Devin White. 29. Kansas City: Deandre Baker CB Georgia The Chiefs 31st ranked pass defense needs a solid CB. Baker can come in and be a solid rookie starter for KC. 30. Green Bay: T.J. Hockenson TE Iowa The Jimmy Graham $30 Million experiment is not looking to favorably now for GB, and it's time to give Rodgers a solid, young TE. 31. LA Rams: Jaylon Ferguson DE Louisiana Tech Pairing up Ferguson on the D line with Donald is a great move for the Rams. The FBS all-time sack leader (45 sacks) joins the 2-time DPOY that is coming off a 20.5 sack season. 32. New England: Noah Fant TE Iowa While it's possible that Gronkowski comes back for another season, NE has to look towards the future and draft the successor to the often-injured Gronkowski.
