I'm Denver...because I know you care. Five of the first 13 picks are mine. Let's go!

That's quite a few picks, Andy. By the way, the link is wrong. It takes one to a team page.

Oops. Thanks...fixed!

And I have eight picks in rounds 4-6. Should hit on at least one guy, right?

You could still get to the draft. You went chalk, huh? Be interesting to see how the draft and subsequent performance pays off for you.

Yeah, I really wanted to take Lamb but I'm hoping I can trade for him plus more. I'd be surprised if the Dallas guy doesn't take him though and that guy is a PITA to trade with. So is Detroit guy. If I can't, being "stuck" with Swift/CEH isn't terrible.

Yup. Nice to get a thought process, too. Sometimes you get guys in a league that won't deal or only send bad offers. Sometimes needs don't align. Always more interesting to hear why you did what you did in addition to other league concerns. I gathered you were high on CeeDee from the other day. Best of luck.

Finally a draft where the top 5 RBs didn't go in the top 6. Thanks for posting.  Gives me hope. 

I think maybe the NFL draft showed that there's not as big a difference between Lamb and Jeudy as the 2nd tier of WRs.  If you are drafting top 5 the depth at WR means you can still come back in round 2 and get a good WR. Not so if you go WR/RB. Good for the 6-8 spots if you need WR,  but not so good if you need a RB. That's fine though... Lamb or Jeudy is a nice consolation prize.

I'm OTC right now at 8. The picks taken are not a surprise, the order in which they went is a small surprise.

Took Jefferson

What surprised you?  For me I would just switch Dobbins and Swift and your draft is almost exactly how I would rank them. 

I have CEH,  Taylor and Dobbins in 1st tier then Lamb,  Swift,  Akers and Jeudy 2nd tier.

I got Cole Kmet at 4.09. This TE class isn’t that bad, is it?

I think it's a combination of there being so many good RB/WR prospects and Kmet ending up on the Bears. I haven't seen any rookie drafts outside of the 1st rd yet but it wouldn't surprise me to see him go mid to late 3rd rd on average, depending on ones need at TE. 4.09 seems like a good value to me.

Simply bpa. Who cares if they have 9 tes, at that price why not?

I do not claim to be an expert, but everything I read predraft claimed that this was a horrible TE class.

First round done. I have a choice to make at 2.1 - Reagor or Young?

You picked Ruggs. Love it. :lmao:

I'd draft Young over Reagor, but it depends on what you need and I'm not high on Reagor.

At 11, why wouldn't I?

I love Reagor and I’d probably still draft Young here. Based on team makeup and the fact you need to start 3.

I'm not laughing at you, I was just laughing that I've sort of been the guy's torchbearer, which you pointed out a few weeks back. It's all good. Great pick.

It feels bad but it's the correct pick. 

Burrow? I agree totally, I almost traded back but I’ve seen him go earlier so I pulled the trigger. I’ve felt good about it ever since.

Have a ton of FFPC drafts going on right now that started this morning.  Just an observation but in 1qb leagues after the top 2 picks there has been a barrage of players across all leagues looking to trade down.  So there is a guy you like outside of CEH/Taylor definitely don't be shy about making an offer to move up to get him because even if the owner isn't actively shopping the pick it seems like most are willing to move down.  I've made some trades to move up that were way way cheaper than they were a month ago.

Not how it was working in my leagues I couldn't even trade up from 8 to 7.  The guys at 5, 6 and 7 had zero interest to move down.  Also I don't believe anyone will move out of 1 or 2 without getting a haul.  If someone deals back from 1 or 2 I would like to hear the haul they got in FFPC format.

What were your move up trades you made today that were way cheaper I like to hear ?

 There’s a clear top 7 right now. I’m guessing you can move from 7 to 3 pretty easy. Moving from 8 to 7 even could be tough.

i appreciate Vaughan moving up the boards. Trading up for free is always nice.

Not sure about from 7 to 3 easily.  If someone wants a top 5 back they are not getting them at 7 in the FFPC most likely.

The guy I traded with here was asking for a lot more two days ago even. Granted it is a small move, but still.

I gave 1.04, 2.04
I got 1.03, 2.09

I don't like this one for you unless Taylor falls to 1.03......not a lot of difference for me between 1.04 and 1.03 but big difference on who you can get at 2.04 and 2.09. 

If Taylor falls though it's a great move.

I already took Taylor in this one at 1.02. I made the move with 1.03 OTC so I could take Dobbins.

I also own the 1.12, 2.03 and 2.10 so I don't feel like I'm too worried about missing out in that range. Personally I have a huge tier drop after 1.03.

If that's where your tier drop is it def makes sense.

I haven't seen a single trade up in my 3 FFPC leagues going on right now.  Maybe I just have boring groups?  I haven't tried either since I own a few early picks anyways.

From my drafts though it seems most view Dobbins > Akers and Swift?  That seems like the logical move right now at least if you thought there was a gap there.  I personally don't so moving from 5 or 4 to 3 seems pointless to me.  Dobbins has been the 3rd RB in all 3 of my leagues (had one where Lamb went 1.03).

The other guy took Akers at 1.04 instead of Swift or elsewise, which leads me to believe he would have taken Dobbins if he'd stayed at 1.03. I had a number of deals worked out to move back from 1.04 but I wanted Dobbins more.

Also, I was going to move back to around 1.07 or 1.08 and snag Jefferson if 1.03 didn't work out. But Jefferson slid to 1.12 anyway. Bonus!!

That's how you wind up taking bad deals. Heh. I did shop around a bit before settling on what I just wrote about. We start Monday and I had no bites, so...

As for joey right above me, Hayden Hurst? That sounds nothing like a rookie to me.

We're at the 2.04 in one of my FFPC leagues right now, and Hurst, Jarwin, Ebron, Gronk, and Gesicki are all on the board. I'm assuming they start going soon. Then more rookies fall to me, I guess that's the theory.

I honestly don't know how FFPC works. What was strange was he had a draft list of all rookies with their draft positions next to them, in order, and then Hayden Hurst. Like, all eighteen guys he listed were rooks and then it says "2.01 Hayden Hurst." I'm wondering if he didn't mean somebody else. Like, look at joey's post just above yours. Hence my comment.
