thoughts on my guys and a few picks made each round.....
1.10 Elliott, Ezekiel DAL RB8
Elliot made it the 8th RB in the top 10 picks. Hoping for a huge bounce back year into the top 3 RB’s with Dak back and an explosive offense with lots of weapons. I’m going to write off last year. They should move the ball and create ample scoring opportunities. No other sniffs here for me, little surprised by the Kelce and Taylor picks this round
2.03 Metcalf, DK SEA WR4
Coin flip with Hopkins, youth won out. Should continue to get better in beast mode. Also sniffed Mahomes just cause that’s what I do. Mildly surprised by the Akers and Swift picks this round, like Crippler bringing back his late round MVP from last year.
3.10 Mahomes, Patrick KCC QB2
Turned out to be an easy “submit” pick for me here as my other targets got snatched, and hey Broncos cracked the QB seal, so this pick should go unnoticed. Had a prayer that Dobbins would make it back, no dice. Would have taken almost anybody else in this round except for Arob if they had made it here, so solid picks across the board. Little surprised to see AJ Brown go before a few others in this round.
4.03 Carson, Chris SEA RB21
Kinda ran to the podium here. Shadow and Bass snagged 4 RB’s in 4 picks at this turn. Going in I had plans to wait on WR as there are many in best ball that I would be happy with late. This pick pretty much solidified that plan as I felt Carson was value at RB21 and with 21 off the board at this point I felt the WR purge would come before my next pick as people would probably move away from RB’s for a while and the pickens would be slim. Little surprised Bass pulled the trigger on CEH instead of some others, I almost have him converted I guess. Lockett over some others also got my attention. Godwin at 17 feels like value.
5.10 Thielen, Adam MIN WR24
Little sticking out like a sore thumb here, so pretty easy for me. Should continue producing with Jefferson opposite. Sniffed OBJ but just can’t seem to pull the trigger there, you never know what you are going to get and now a pretty serious injury too. Thielan safer. Liked the Lamb pick, Higgins pick raised my eyebrows, guess I need to dive deeper there between now and August, Fant getting some love, and Engram still garnering respect was also interesting.
6.03 Pitts, Kyle FA TE9
Little surprised he was still around, felt like he went really early in our other draft this spring so was expecting someone besides me to pull the trigger. But here we are, so let’s do it. Sniffed Sutton here. Bass pick of Lamar felt right, liked the Boyd pick as that seems like value, love the Aiyuk pick and Murray. Fuller pick surprised a little over Boyd, etc. but that’s also cause I am probably way too down on Tua.
7.10 Brady, Tom TBB QB10
Wanted a solid QB2 in this format and was willing to pay the price of what it would cost me elsewhere. Not sure if that was smart or not as I passed up some solid players at other positions. Would have gone Sutton here if he made it, and sniffed Debo. Like how Mr. I paid the price of being on the turn and locked down two QB’s. Almost had to there. Herbert and Stafford over Wilson will be fun to watch.
8.03 Tonyan, Robert GBP TE12
Original plan going in was to target Higbee as my sneaky pick as I think he has a big year with Stafford around and Everett gone. So now I have passed on him twice. With a rookie TE on board that I took a chance on, it felt like I needed a solid backup or two, and felt like maybe I was misreading the temperature of the room on Higbee with the rest of you guys and maybe I could wait. I must be the only one that likes Higbee. Tonyan resigned and the HOF QB likes him. So in best ball Tonyan has a little more value IMO. You can survive the ups and downs. Would have taken Debo if he made it back, but didn’t really sniff anything else (besides Higbee). Really liked Broncos pick of Davis this round, was hoping to get him in the 9th.
9.10 Higbee, Tyler LAR TE14
Just couldn’t take it anymore and we can start 3.
10.03 Harris, Damien NEP RB34
Ignored RB and WR for 4 rounds and only two of each on board. Harris feels like he could be the RB1 in NE although that is always dangerous. But I like this pick as I think he gets first crack. Liked the Gallup pick by Oz and loved Mr. I getting Smith at TE17, we all may regret letting him fall that far.
11.10 Hardman, Mecole KCC WR48
He has probably left a bad taste in the mouth of the FF community, but he could take the next step and be the WR2 in KC. If not, he is a solid best ball pick as you can use his big weeks and it gives me the stack with Mahomes. Sniffed Mike Williams here. Liked Mr. I pick of David Johnson here as somebody had to take him and at RB37, there is not much lost if it doesn’t pan out.
12.03 Williams, Mike LAC WR52
Felt a little like a steal at WR52, I probably should have taken him instead of Hardman, maybe I’m off base.
13.10 Jones, Marvin JAC WR57
Another best ball quality option. Like his potential with Lawrence. Glad he made it back to me.
14.03 Ruggs, Henry LVR WR58
Just pounded WR 4 rounds in a row and this is kind of what I had in mind heading into the draft. Last four IMO are pretty solid best ball darts to add to Metcalf and Thielan, that can ham and egg you high scores each week. Ruggs disappointed last year but the skill and speed is there. Should see plenty of snaps and touches. Almost took Gus Edwards here as I like him a lot, and maybe should have.
15.10 Broncos, Denver DEN Def12
This one hurt, I can’t stand these guys and it’s going to suck to see them produce for me as I cheer for them to lose every week as I watch all their games living here in CO. But I can’t ignore what they have done on defense with the guys they brought back (Simmons/Jackson/and Von to a certain extent). They added Fuller as well, get Von back with Chubb, they should be pretty solid except for 2 games a year.
16.03 Koo, Younghoe ATL PK3
Didn’t love anything here and not any must haves, so if I lock down a PK and a DST at this turn it gives me some flexibility moving forward. If I had it to do all over again, I probably should have gone E. Sanders here.
17.10 Singletary, Devin BUF RB53
I really don’t know what to think of the BUF backfield but I need another body. Liked the Agholor and AJ Green picks this round.
18.03 Murray, Latavius NOS RB54
Little surprised he was still hanging around as he is usually one of the first few RB2’s taken so nice piece to add as my RB5 as you can usually count on him scoring for you a few times a year even with a healthy Kamara.
19.10 Titans, Tennessee TEN Def18
Was hoping Lindsey fell, no rhyme or reason for this DST over any others except they get what should be a not very good HOU team twice, Wentz twice, and a rookie QB twice.
20.03 Myers, Jason SEA PK14
You can start two PK each week in this format, so good to have some options where the weekly floor is pretty solid as they should score something each week and they don’t usually get hurt. Secured what should be two top 10 options.
