Can I get an Official #7 Pick, 12 Team PPR up in here?!? (1 Viewer)

Got #7, anyone else? Thoughts, strategies...? Looking like RB is a must but missing out on the top guys. Richardson, Rice, McCoy, Spiller? What are we going to do?

 
I drew the 7th pick for my long time fantasy league, and have done many mocks from that position. Obviously you take the RB of your choice at that position, the question is more about the 2nd round pick and how that dictates the rest of your drafts. I found I am happiest with my team by going RB-RB. The talent falls off so quickly at that position, and QB and WR are so deep.

It becomes intriguing if you have Aaron Rogers/Dez Bryant/AJ Green/Jimmy Graham staring you in the face, however. A lot depends on your league. If it is not full of sharks and you think that a RB like Reggie Bush/Frank Gore/DeMarco Murray/Lamar Miller could fall to the 3rd round pick, it could really pay off. When the draft is live, though, and people start to panic when RB becomes super thin, they will reach a little early for some players allowing lots of talented players at WR to be available in rounds 3 and 4. I just feel more comfortable with a scenario like: Ray Rice-MJD-Roddy White over, say, Ray Rice-Julio Jones-David Wilson.

That would be my top 7 but only #1 is set for me. Any of the others are interchangeable.

Got to go Brees there. No question.
Should probably take Manning to fill in your bye week in the 2nd round as well. Then probably load up on defenses after that.
Thanks guy. You have blog or something so I can keep up with all of your tips to win. Really want to win this year.
Not sure if you have a sarcasm detector or not. If not, then no I don't have a blog, but I'll send you an invite to my league and follow up with a PM with all my super big sleepers this year.

this is what i found too. i'm happiest with my team when i go RB-RB, but everyone once in a while graham will fall to me in the second; then there's a real decision because passing on a RB in the 2nd means hoping that bush/mcfadden/miller will still be there in the 3rd.. i'm not comfortable grabbing a WR in the second, even if dez/marshall/green are available because i feel like the WR pool is deep this year. i also always try to snag vareen in the 4th or 5th if a receiver i really like isn't there, even though that leaves me thin at WR. i'm high on vareen and it's a little of a reach, but he's usually gone by the 5th. qb is usually luck or romo in 7th/8th. BPA from there. good luck.

 
Been mocking from the 7th a lot, at first I hated it, but with the run on RBs lasting so long it allows you the most access to players who are slipping past where they should be drafted, imo.

I love taking Rice here in the first if the first 6 people are silly enough to let him slide, after that its really thin for me between Mccoy and TRich. In the 2nd I target Forte, SJax, Reggie Bush and Chris Johnson in that order. In the 3rd I really like Roddy White, but sometimes Sproles will slip this far and its always a decision for me. In the 4th I almost always reach for Amendola knowing he won't make it back and in the 5th I take Hakeem Nicks or Antonio Brown. Ive been able to reliably get this core in almost all of my mocks and in one of my drafts. Brady is available a lot of times in the 6, I typically take him over a RB or WR as I think passing on Brady in the 6th is ludicrous.

I've had the 1.07/1.08 in many MFL10s so far and took TRich all of them. I was usually passing on McCoy/Foster/Rice to do so.

Maybe I'm in the minority but I see TRich's upside much higher than any of those guys. This is a rookie on a crappy offense that played with a broken rib for most of the year and still easily finished top 10 in PPR. I think he has the highest ceiling of any RB not named Peterson.

Took McCoy, who I had ranked 3rd on my list for RBs. 2nd round had some interesting options: Brees, MJD, D Thomas, and Graham were the best at their position remaining. I went with Graham. MJD fell all the way back to me in the 3rd!

 
Our league does a draft 1-12 where #1 gets to pick his draft spot, and so on. I has the 3rd pick so I choose #7. My reasoning was I'll still be able to get a #1 RB. After AP a lot of the guys can really be a crap shoot. Non PPR league id say

McCoy... So unless a few guys get hurt in pre season then you'll be able to grab one of the top guys, and not have to worry about messing up on one of your picks. The real reason why I choose 7 was for the guy coming back.. I'm targeting a RB so maybe S-jax, Morris, or how your league works Ridley will still be there. You may also still be able to get an Elite WR like dez, AJ, marshall, TE in Graham or you can grab brees or Rodgers. Endless possibilities and the guy you grab at #7 isn't really going to be any different than the guy at #3 but in the 2nd the guy you get could be better than the guy 3 is takiing

Very Good point about round two.
