Looking for some helping in formulating a draft strategy for my league this year. Here are the positions that we play with and the scoring settings as well:
1 QB, 2 WR's, 2 RB's, 1 TE, 1 Flex (QB/WR/RB/TE), 1 K, 1 Def
25 Yards per point Passing, 5 points for a Passing TD, -2 points for Interception/Fumble, 5 point bonus for hitting 400 Passing Yards, 1 point for 40+ yard plays
Since we're allowed to have a QB in the Flex spot it's effectively a 2 QB league. It's a 10 team re-draft league and I'm picking 7th overall. I'm pretty confident that I know the order of the first six picks in front of me: Brees, Rodgers, Charles, McCoy, Peterson/Manning, Peterson/Manning. That leaves me without an option of one of the top six players. I'm struggling to really land on a solid strategy for my first four rounds of drafting. Here's a few ideas that I've had so far:
Take Calvin in the first and hope that I can snag a good RB on the way back in the second round. I would be aiming for someone like Lynch or Foster in the second round. I would get the best WR in the league in this scenario and I would still get a decent RB with the second pick I hope. My main worries with this strategy are that I could potentially be left without a good RB if others decide to draft one early. Secondly, even if I do get one of those RB's I mentioned, they're both risky choices. Reduced workload for Lynch and Foster is coming back from injury.
My second strategy would be to take Forte in the first round and back that up with one of the top 5 WR's in the second. I'd likely steer clear of picking Marshall in the second since I would already have Forte. I would be targeting either Demaryius Thomas or AJ Green in the second. The tradeoff here is looking at the decrease in value from Calvin down to Thomas/Green against the upside from Forte over Lynch/Foster.
Is anyone able to lend a helping hand here and provide some rationale for one of the aforementioned strategies over another? Or are there any other strategies I should be considering? Thanks in advance!
