Seems that zero WR may be the best strategy this year. In the drafts I have done (haven't done one in couple weeks) there are always at least three people who go zero RB in the first 4-5 rounds which creates unbelievable value for RBs versus second or third rate wr's in the round 3-5 period especially

I disagree.  Only have done 3 so far but from what I've seen and what's posted on this board, there's tons of RB value in the 6-10 range.   End of the day, WR's are just a lot more consistent.  And especially the Elite ones.  You hit on just 1 RB in those middle rds, you're golden.  I'm convinced zero-RB is the optimal strategy.  Especially in a tournament format like this.  Just my .02

Guy drafting in the 12 spot last nite took 6 WR to start.. He took 7 WR,  2 TE and 1 RB with first 10 picks..

Allowed for some real nice RB value to fall.. I got Forte in the 5th, Gio in the 7th and Theo in the 9th along with Aaron Rodgers in the 6th

Well did one tonight fully intending to go the heavy RB route but strangely enough had a lot of WR value.

Well rounded, solid club. Deep at WR.  RBs after Duke are a bit of a shot in the dark. Curious, where did you get Ebron?  Assuming this draft was today - after the injury news?  Could be a big pick if he's ok.

I picked him up in the 11th. Figure he is worth a shot down there

I'll preface this by saying I really like this team, and it's the first time I've had the opportunity to draft WR with my first four picks.

The value was simply too much to pass up drafting from 1.8:

QB: Drew Brees (9.8)

RB: Thomas Rawls (5.8), Matt Jones (6.5), Ameer Abdullah (7.8), Kenneth Dixon (12.5), Alex Collins (14.8), Jalen Richard (20.8)

WR: A.J. Green (1.8), Mike Evans (2.5), Jarvis Landry (3.8), Donte Moncrief (4.5), Michael Thomas (11.8), Jalen Strong (15.8), Kenny Stills (17.8), Tajae Sharp (18.5)

TE: Antonio Gates (8.5), Zach Miller (10.5), Will Tye (13.8)

Defense: Houston (16.5)

Kicker: Chris Boswell (19.8)

It's solid but where is the value you're referencing?  All these guys are pretty much where their ADP's are.  Rawls at 5.8 is nice now that he's activated. But he was going rd 4-5 in every draft tho also.  Also would have taken Michael over Collins and way too high there for him as well.  Collins is barely draftable IMO. 

But should be solid assuming those backs don't flame out.

Decided to go against the grain last night..  Has a different feel but overall I like it..

Brees, Big Ben

D. Johnson, Miller, CJ Anderson, D. Lewis, J. Ferguson, J. White

Maclin, J. Gordon, M. Jones, W. Snead, B. Ellington, B. Perriman, D. Amendola

Gates, Wilford, Amaro

Gostkowski, Seattle

 

Should be different as everyone else keeps going no RB strategy..

Interesting to see how it pans out. If you can get production out of your receivers till Gordon comes back and he shows no signs of rust   being out of the game so long it should be fine as the rest of your positions are solid. 

I took sort of the same approach with a draft a couple nites ago

Love this team. Great value in Funchess and Hightower. May want to see if you can get another TE. The Eagles went with a lot of three TE sets tonight, and indications are they may do that a lot this season. Not sure if that means Ertz sees less targets.

I actually agree with him. Its much better to do the opposite. I talked a bit with you about this last year when I went TE, QB, WR and you thought the team sucked. Ended up top 50 and a lot of it was because I zigged while those other punks zagged. Going zero RB is all the rage currently (so very hipster) and while I do agree WR's are more consistent it still comes down to selecting the right WRs. Now that tons of people are going WR,WR,WR it allows for value in others places. I won't be going zero RB this year....thats for sure. I did so last year but Im thinking this year the forward thinkers are going to adjust and take advantage of the zero RB crowd.

Thing with this game is we don't know what strategy will work from year to year unless you are a psychic or have divine intervention .. I have neither so I started out drafting teams WR heavy then went to balanced teams and now am goin RB heavy.. Figured I'd cover all the bases and still be a loser..

In the end, you have to pick the right players regardless.  Me personally, I've had a lot more success going zero RB.  There are still too many questions with the rbs who are going early, to bypass elite WR's.  In my mind at least.  

For the most part, I'll put my eggs in those rbs in the 6-9 range and hope to strike gold there.  Also as a couple noted, RB's pop up out of nowhere a lot more then stud WR's do.

My draft going right now is interesting...

1.05 - David Johnson

2.08 - Adrian Peterson

3.05 - Mark Ingram

 

Never intended to go RB heavy, but just how the draft fell with Peterson sliding...really hate the value of WR in the third round

Nice drafting w/you Zeke.  This one was a bit unconventional for me.  Charles hasn't been on my radar all offseason.  But at 3.3, had to take him.  Sucks having to waste 2 picks on handcuffing him but what can ya do.  good luck.

Good thing I took Sterling Shepard or you'd have the entire starting offense of the Gmen.. I seriously thought about Jamaal at 3.1 but with Freeman already ended up going with Hilton.. Glad i did cause i had no idea Duke would drop to the end of 6th.. Should be a fun league

Rodgers, Flacco

Freeman, Duke Johnson, Forsett, Coleman, Dixon, Jordan Howard, Zenner

Antonio, Hilton, Tate, Shepard, Hogan, Charles Johnson, Tajae Sharpe

Miller, McDonald

Gostkowski

Was between Duke and Foster there in the 6th.  Figure for the games I get out of Foster, he's still likely a top-15 RB option at worst.  I'll sign for 7 Arian Foster games right now and be happy.   Was hoping to get Ajay at a discount, didn't happen.   Don't think I would have taken Shepard over Lockett or Hurns tho. Wanted Lockett there and the guy takes him right before me, but times out and hits the pause button.  Was semi excited that he would throw him back, but he was fine with the auto pick.  Ugh.  

How about the guy who went 7 WR's in his first 8 picks?? Does he realize you can't trade in this thing? Ha

Pretty good squad...gonna need some of those WRs to reach their potential to have a shot. You've got a few of my late round targets in Morris/Adams/ASJ.

Pretty solid team, will likely depend on Charles/Foster combo although Henry could be a second half gem.  WR depth could struggle.

When you go doube TE early it really hurts you at WR/RB.

Yea I've been working the 2 early TE strategy in almost all of my drafts.  It's a risky strategy for sure.  Pretty happy with the results tho.  Now if Fleener ####s the bed, it won't be pretty.

Huge risks? Interesting you feel that way. I did go more RB heavy than I would have liked but thats how the draft fell with 5 teams going Zero RB. I trust in my evaluations.

Top 50 finisher from last year

Trust in your evaluations? How is the Demaryus Thomas as your WR1 pick looking now with Siemen and Paxton Lynch throwing to him all year? :D

Looks the same as it did with Sanchez throwing to him. Targets are targets and noobish QBs tend to lock onto WR1s so Im cool with either. I actually hope Lynch gets the job.

Who threw to DeAndre Hopkins last year? DThom is more talented than Hopkins.....its all about the targets bro. I like WR1s in Kubiaks offense.

Yea don't agree with this. Faster, bigger, more athletic, ok.  But Nuuuuk is easily the superior talent of the 2.  He's basically the younger version of Fitz.   Best hands in the game right now.
