Just going to add my write up for what I wanted my team to be and how I felt like it went. I am team "L" from NE Revival's tweet.
We had a video meeting talking about a lot of the early round format so I won't revisit that. But my strategy basically came down to RB's/youth/upside in the early rounds. I wanted a few "mainstays" that gave me positional advantage but it didn't quite go my way, so I decided to load up on RB early and hope that's enough.
I knew I wanted WR's in the mid/late rounds so I was banking on that. We got to the 6th round and I had 6 or so WR's I was targeting. Felt trading down was fine and left the 6th for a future 1st and a 15th. Ended up still getting one of my guys in the 7th. That happened a good bit in this draft, I wanted a guy or two, traded down a few spots and usually still got my guy. That's a sign I'm higher on someone than the entire league, which odds are I'm wrong ha. Anyways I went for it and picked up future picks along with a very young team.
As for the rounds 8-9 since TE didn't go my way I felt the need to swing. There were a few TE's I really like there. Tonyan for TD upside or a larger role on offense could be huge. Trautman the same since there's only 2 other pass catchers worth worrying about there and Jameis could be chucking it around.
10-13 was my sweet spot for high upside hopefuls. So I filled my holes there and took more guys I love. Gabriel Davis, Elijah Mitchell, Bryan Edwards, and Denzel Mims. I'm not as high on Mims anymore, but he still has that #1 upside. I like Mitchell more than Sermon and I'll take the discount in ADP. Edwards is the #1 and that was a guy I NEEDED to have from last year.
After those picks I basically chose my personal favorites from different recent draft classes.
If you've been on these forums a while you know who almost all my WR picks were. Basically guy's that I had been pounding the table for. Either starting their thread or being the guy who posted the most about them. Bryan Edwards, Denzel Mims, PRESTON WILLIAMS (obviously, I wrote his fan club intro), Michael Gallup, Gabriel Davis and Tee Higgins. I felt youth was essential (as I always do in startups), but upside was even more important. In a year, I feel all of them could/will be #1's on offenses or at worst the 1b. They were my favorite prospects from the past 2-3 years so I decided this team was going to be that. A group of my favorites and see where the chips fall.
After my RB, RB, RB start, I enjoyed the draft so much because it was almost always a guy I was targeting was who I was picking. There were only a few cases that a guy I was planning on didn't make it to me. Waddle in the 6th, which lead to the trade down. Bateman in the 7th (pivoted to Gallup), Zack Moss in the 8th (went to TE instead which worked out well), Darrell Henderson/Jamaal Williams was the target in 11 but they went just before and so I started my favorite player run.
Overall I'm very happy with the draft, and I enjoyed it a lot due to the fact that value was hard to come by. And the fact that I got lots of players I planted my flag on, it's very much a fan team. I know I'm higher on most of them than probably the whole league so future value might be completely off. But it was fun. I've got two future 1sts (including my own), two future 2nds, and three 3rd's. I'm happy with that capital for the future and the young hopeful team I've assembled.
