Drafting First Overall (1 Viewer)

I will be drafting in two WCOFF main events this year and I drew the 1st and 8th slots. I'd like to get some early thoughts on where the best value is at this position. I'm going to use the FBG Staff PPR Mock Draft since I feel the PPR ADP data may be a bit off. I'll copy and paste the first 15 rounds and highlight the guys I want to target.

Format = 1qb/2rb/3wr/1te/1pk/1dt/1flex - standard ppr scoring, 0.05/passing yard and 4/passing td

2.08 Levin RB Pierre Thomas NO

2.09 Bloom WR DeSean Jackson PHI

2.10 Haseley RB Shonn Greene NYJ

2.11 Lammey WR Greg Jennings GB

With the first overall pick I'd be targetting one of ADP or CJ. For this particular WCOFF draft I've decided I want guys who have very high upsides who can help me win the overall grand prize. ADP and CJ both have the upside to run for 2000 yards, 20 tds, and catch a high number of passes.

2.12 Waldman WR Marques Colston NO

4.09 Bloom WR Hakeem Nicks NYG

4.10 Haseley WR Hines Ward PIT

4.11 Lammey RB Felix Jones DAL

I'd pass on TE and QB with these two picks.. You can find good value at those positions later on in the draft. I see a couple RBs and WRs I'd like in these spots. I would grab two of Steve Smith (Car), Ryan Grant, Jamaal Charles, Chad Ochocinco, and Cedric Benson.

4.12 Waldman WR Santana Moss WAS

5.01 Waldman RB Jahvid Best DET

5.02 Lammey WR Dez Bryant DAL

6.08 Levin TE Owen Daniels HOU

6.09 Bloom WR Jeremy Maclin PHI

6.10 Haseley RB Justin Forsett SEA

6.11 Lammey QB Eli Manning NYG

Again I'd pass up on QB since the top 5 are gone.. I usually like to stock up on RBs and WRs and grab TEs and QBs later, but I would seriously consider Jermichael Finley with one of these two picks. I'm looking for guys with high upside and I think he is going to be an absolute beast this year and compete to be the best TE in fantasy ball. I really like Addai and Best at this spot as well... Addai is more of a safe pick while Best would offer a lot of upside. I like Sims-Walker at this point in the draft, but I'd much rather have Hines Ward who went just before the 4.12 pick.

8.08 Levin WR Eddie Royal DEN

8.09 Bloom RB Fred Jackson BUF

8.10 Haseley WR Robert Meachem NO

8.11 Lammey WR Johnny Knox CHI

I would grab Brett Favre with one of these picks, but I have a feeling his ADP will be alot higher once he announces he if officialy coming back. So lets assume he's gone at this point, in which case I'd continue to wait on QB as I don't see a ton of value here... You could easily wait til one of the next picks to grab one since 9 owners have already selected a starter at QB so I wouldn't expect to see a big run at that position. The only RB I like here is Michael Bush, but I'd pass on him if I already had 3 RBs. I'd most likely double up on WR here and take Housh and Hester.

10.08 Levin WR Devin Thomas WAS

10.09 Bloom QB Matthew Stafford DET

10.10 Haseley RB Arian Foster HOU

10.11 Lammey RB Toby Gerhart MIN

Ok now its time to grab a QB... Maybe even two QBs at this point. Obviously I like Favre, but lets assume he won't be here. In that case I'd grab Flacco for sure, and maybe even double up and add one of Palmer and McNabb as well. If I decided to only take one QB then I like Caddy or LT2 as a RB3/4 and I wouldn't mind Mason or Lee Evans at WR here. If I didn't end up with Finely then I'd like one of the Millers at TE.

10.12 Waldman RB LaDainian Tomlinson NYJ

12.08 Levin RB Laurence Maroney NE

12.09 Bloom WR Mike Williams TB

12.10 Haseley WR Mike Thomas JAC

12.11 Lammey RB Steve Slaton HOU

I'm guessing that I'd have a TE by this point, but if not I'd grab Carlson here. I'd love LT2 as a RB4 at this point. I'd absolutly love Schilens at this spot and I'd consider grabbing Aromashodu here, especially if I had Hester on my roster already.

14.08 Levin RB Julius Jones SEA

14.09 Bloom WR James Jones GB

14.10 Haseley WR Chris Chambers KC

14.11 Lammey TE Dustin Keller NYJ

At this point I'd just be stockpiling WRs as I don't see much value at RB. I'd also grab a backup QB if I haven't already done so.. I like Garrard or Henne at this spot if I'm going that route. They are safe picks and should end up as mid to low end QB2s. At WR I like Chambers, Kevin Walter and James Jones

16.09 Bloom RB Lynell Hamilton NO

16.10 Haseley TE Jermaine Gresham CIN

16.11 Lammey WR Josh Morgan SF

16.12 Waldman QB Matt Moore CAR

I like Lynell Hamilton since Pierre Thomas and Reggie Bush usually miss some games. Mike Bell would be a nice depth guy to have and Ringer would be a mu st have if I took Chris Johnson. I also like Tate and Moore at WR.

I wouldn't grab a Kicker or Defense until the last two rounds of the draft so I purposely left them out.

All in all my teams would proabably look something like this:

Joe Flacco/David Garrard - Chris Johnson/Jamaal Charles/Jahvid Best/Ladanian Tomlinson/Javon Ringer - Steve Smith/T.J. Houshmanzadeh/Devin Hester/Derrick Mason/Chaz Schilens/Chris Chambers/Lance Moore - Jermichael Finley

Joe Flacco/David Garrard - Chris Johnson/Ryan Grant/Jamaal Charles/Ladanian Tomlinson/Javon Ringer - Sims-Walker/T.J. Houshmanzadeh/Devin Hester/Derrick Mason/Chaz Schilens/Chris Chambers/Lance Moore - Jermichael Finely

Joe Flacco/David Garrard/Chad Henne/ - Chirs Johnson/Jahvid Best/Joseph Addai/Ladanian Tomlinson/Javon Ringer - Steve Smith/Chad Ochocinco/T.J. Houshmanzadeh/Devin Hester/Chaz Schilens/Lance Moore - Zach Miller

Thoughts?

 
I would definitely suggest trying to take a QB a round or 2 earlier.

This year, I just feel that there are about 10 or so QBs that I would be comfortable with as my QB1, and Flacco does not fit that description. I just think that you would be losing too much ground at QB for the slight upgrade you would be gaining at the other positions.

Well I feel like taking a QB at 2.12/3.01 is just too early.. I could grab one of Rivers or Brady at 4.12/5.01, but I'm not in love with either of those guys this year. Brady could be missing Welker while Rivers could be missing VJax. I could grab a QB at 6.12 at 7.01, but the guy I liked best at that spot was actually still Flacco. I have him ranked as the 11th best QB this year and am happy with him as my starter as long as I have a solid back up or two.
