Strategy for drafting 9th overall - Last minute $ league tonight (1 Viewer)

Klimtology

Footballguy
Haven't really done any research this season (nor watched any preseason games), but I'm thinking RB, RB, WR, WR, TE for the first five rounds. Anyone have any experience drafting in the later part of the round this year? Recommended strategies? Am I at a serious disadvantage?

I went Alf Morris - Chris Johnson - Vincent Jackson - Lamar Miller - Gronk

From the nine spot.

I was pretty happy with my overall draft.

 
Why lock yourself into a set position for each round? Setting yourself up for failure there, if you ask me.

RB at 1.09 seems like a solid strategy, with names like Richardson, Lynch and McCoy hovering in that ADP. Swinging back, though, I'd have a hard time not taking an elite WR1.

Starting Richardson/Marshall sounds pretty sweet to me.

I drafted 9th the other day in a 12-team league. Ended up with the following roster so you can see what might be possible:

QB - Tony Romo

RB - Trent Richardson

RB - David Wilson

WR - Reggie Wayne

WR - DeSean Jackson

TE - Jordan Cameron

Flex - Reggie Bush

BN - Daryl Richardson, Miles Austin, Joique Bell, Alshon Jeffrey, Matt Schaub

I took Trent Richardson in the first round, so I think you might be able to end up with him depending on what the other players do. QB's were coming off the boards like crazy in the second half of the 2nd, and 3rd, so I was dealt with Romo in the 4th in fear of not getting anyone who is going to sling it a lot this year. I feel like I didn't get an "elite" WR, but I'll have to roll with what I got. TE is still a ? mark also until I see the production. Good luck drafting.

RB/RB/WR/RB worked well for me. I was able to get Gronk in the 5th but his ADP seems to be 3/4 now because of the positive news.

Get RB early. Plenty of #2 WR in the mid to late rounds.

 
Thanks for the replies guys!

:thumbsup:

Any other advice/suggestions would be appreciated!

Draft is in 20 min!

 
Rb's get thin quick....dont be afraid to grab three in the first four rounds....to me te is deep this year so grab an extra rb or wr in the 5th unless a stud qb happens to fall.

 
Thanks again guys!

How do you guys like my team?

I think I mostly drafted BPA.

Where did I go wrong? I'm probably most worried about the QB position.

And, yes, I am a Giants fan!
