Post Rookie Draft Ranking (1 Viewer)


Just Offense, 16 Teamer, QB/ 3 WR / 1 RB / 1 TE / 2 W/R/T.  4 pt TD for QBs, .5/1/1.25 PPR for R/W/T

QB: Matthew Stafford, Deshaun Watson, Mike Glennon, Paxton Lynch
RB: Todd Gurley, Carlos Hyde, Joe Mixon, Shane Vereen, DeAngelo Williams
WR: Demaryius Thomas, Dez Bryant, DeVante Parker, Randall Cobb, Terrance Williams, Marquise Goodwin, Tyler Boyd, ArDarius Stewart, Dwayne Harris, Charles Johnson
TE: Greg Olsen, Tyler Eifert, Vance McDonald
PK: Steve Hauschka

Was able to get 1.03 and took Mixon (had 1.01 at one point but moved back to 1.03 for a 2018 2nd, the team is in rebuild so it'll be low; I fell that the top 4 are pretty interchangable this yr)

Traded Julio for a package of Dem Thomas / Parker and 2.07 which I turned into Watson.  A little low I know but I expect Parker to take the next step and I'm sick of banging my head on Jones injury history... great player I know but these injuries will catch up soon.

Hope I'm wrong for your sake, but I can't help but think you made your team worse so far. I think you basically gave Julio away, he's no less durable than either Thomas or Parker, and obviously is a lot more talented and in a better offense. you should have gotten at least a 1st and 3rd rounder in addition to what you got. 

Looking at a lot of rankings, I'm apparently among the minority who thinks Mixon is pretty risky, so I think the difference between him and Fournette is bigger than a 2018 2nd rounder. 

I wish you the best of luck, but I think you should have gotten a lot more in both of those deals.



I agree with travdogg here.   You traded away premium dynasty assets (Julio and 1.01) and didn't get much value in return.  DT is a solid player but his dynasty value is very low, Parker is far from a sure thing, and the 2.07 pick is a total crapshoot.  In larger leagues (16 teamer) having players that can win you a week by themselves is critical and Julio is one of those players.  You way undersold him here.

I agree that the difference between pick 1.01 and 1.03 isn't huge when there isn't a specific player you want.  However, the perceived value of 1.01 is much higher than what you got in return.  I think you undersold here as well. 

Bottom line is I do  think the deals will end up being ok in terms of actual fantasy returns but you should have gotten a much better return for those premium assets so you left a lot on the table by taking these low value offers.
