Hi all. I am in a league as described above, which we did before but are just starting having keepers this year. We will keep 4 players each year starting next year. It is a smaller league (8 players), and I have the 5th pick in this year's draft. I am just trying to gauge who to build my team around and thus am trying to determine my targets, especially during the first four rounds. There are 2 QBs, 2 RBs, 3 WRs, 1 TE, 2 Flex (TE/WR/RB), K, DEF, 8 Bench per roster.
Here are my ideas so far by round:
1st- I feel like Lacy will be there at the 5th pick, and he is my guy I really want. If he is not available, I am torn. I may go Brees here, but I am torn because, after all, he is 35. Rodgers may be the guy I consider here if Lacy is gone. (Last year, same format but no keepers, no QBs went in the first and only Peyton and Rodgers went in the 2nd... These guys love their RBs a TON, and that has driven the draft in the past.)
2nd- I would love to get Graham at this pick. I'm hoping he is there. I think Lacy and Graham are two wonderful players to build around. Should Graham be taken, I am assuming top tier RBs will be gone by then, so I may consider who is available out of Dez, Green, and Demariyius at WR since QBs always sit in this league's draft. (Who would you take if you could choose out of all three of those WR?)
3rd- Assuming I don't go RB in the 2nd, I may grab one here (Bell, Bernard, Ball, etc.). Last year in this league with these guys (was not a keeper then, but was still 2-QB) I nabbed Brees in the 3rd and Cam in the 6th. These guys simply don't take QBs that quickly, so I may wait and expect to get a great long-term value in the 4th and 5th rounds. If they are coming off quicker this year, I'd like to get Luck or Cam here.
4th and 5th- Hoping I can nab Cam and Luck with these two picks, which would be no problem based on last year's draft trends. (I will obviously keep tabs on the first two rounds and see how late Manning, Brees, Rodgers go. If these guys figure out how valuable QBs in a 2-QB are and they go round one, I obviously change my approach drastically... But these are the two guys I want.)
Deeper targers I like for the next few rounds are: Ellington, Crabtree, T-Rich, Gerhart, Patterson, Hilton, Kaepernick, Wright, Shorts, just to name a few in no particular order. Who else should I be on the hunt for? Which of these guys would you not consider or target the most?
Any advice would be great. To summarize, other than maybe drafting Lacy in the first, my strategy will be to load up on elite WR, QB, and TE while everyone goes RB happy and get a value RB the best I can.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts!
