Ok, I've helped more than a few of y'all - where do I pick Alex Smith today?

Question

Draft today at 6 (4 hours). IDP PPR, QB-semi-heavy scoring

stats from Thursday count. Smith put up a 50+ point game that counts in your week 1 lineup. 

what round would you pick him?  7th? 10th? Never? 

Go!

Go! 

1 QB league?

 

If so, never

 

But if you really want those 50 you'll have to take him around the 8th round(Hell, I took Wilson in the 8th in a 6TD league last weekend)

 

Good luck

10th +, better to invest in a player for the whole year so can't go any lower than that. Smith had his best game ever in his life. If you bought him high for one week fine ,but you are essentially buying him high for the whole season. I can't picture you starting him ever again with confidence.

No sooner than the 9th. If someone else wants to overpay for him for one week, ok, but not me. I'd rather target Hunt early especially in a Keeper/Dynasty League. 
The only exception to that would be if you also managed to get Hunt early. Let's face it, getting Hunt and Smith in week 1 would assure you a victory. Also, taking Hunt early might also cause the other owners to reach to make sure you didn't also get Smith. 

Sorry I didn't get to this sooner. I appreciate you answering mine. 
Interested to hear how this played out? Where did Hunt and Smith go?

ETA, my #s were off. My bad - it's 4:40 AM

& ive been setting up the league all damn night so people have teams in the AM. 

sigh. 

Yeah - 6 picks away. I settled for R. Wilson, who should be more valuable over the course of the year. 

Fortunately I'm not facing the smith owner. 

In the 21st I took a throw-away DL Who had a sack & 5 tkl for 15 points. I was booed by my leaguemates. I admitted it was a cheap #### move. lol

Good job, not overspending for Smith. I'm not a big Wilson fan, but the 8th round is ok for him. You're getting booed for a 21st round pick? Your league mates need to get a life....why not chase a few points for a throw away round anyway. 
Good Job.
Ah the work of a Commissioner is never-ending, isn't it?

The opposite. I had 5 festivals in 6 weeks, leaving the 9th as the only possible day what with the other people in the leagues black out days.

Feeling pretty solid about 1.07 Hunt seeing as DJohnson may miss 1/2 the season. 

Ya just never know.
