    Who should I draft?

    Non PPR standard scoring dynasty league. Ten teams.

    Start 1 QB, 1Rb, 2 WR, 2 Flex, TE, DST, K

    20 player rosters this year (19 last year).

    I have the sixth pick in the rookie draft.

    Current roster:

    QB: Cam, Dak
    RB: Bell, D Johnson, M Gordon, D Henry, Cohen, Jamaal Williams
    WR: Hopkins, M Thomas, Landry, Goodwin, Stills, M Bryant (likely to drop for someone else)
    TE: Ertz, Burton, Njoku
    DST: Texans
    K: Butker

    I was initially leaning going WR for depth but maybe I should go for best RB available? I almost always start 3RBs because of my depth and it being a standard league.

    Was initially thinking about Sutton (d Thomas and/or sanders likely gone after this year), DJ Moore (he’s usually ranked as highest rookie WR but I don’t trust a Carolina WR in fantasy), Ridley (mixed expectations at the pro level), or Kirk. But all of them except Moore would probably be a slight reach at pick 6.

    Running back wise I might be able to grab Royce freeman or similar at 6.

    Anybody have any thoughts on this scenario?

    its impossible to tell without knowing how the board goes

    your team is stacked and judging 10 team leagues is much harder than 12 teams

    Im assuming since this is a rookie draft, you've had one of those every year?

    Only asking because you have Bell, DJ, Hopkins, Thomas, Gordon....its an all star squad haha. Either that or the rest of the league has no idea whats going on.

    Haha. Well I think I’ve lucked out a bit. Drafted melvin Gordon number one overall (over Gurley :()and then got David Johnson in the third round of the same rookie draft. And yeah I think this is our sixth year and we just draft rookies annually.

    Won the championship for the first time two years ago and lost in the finals last year against the Gurley/Hunt combo. I would say there are a few really terrible rosters, 3 mediocre rosters and 4 teams that are really good contenders with my roster being the best on paper. So much so that it might impact my ability to decide who to start week to week. I’ve only been 7-5 most years in the regular season.

  9. 12-team league with 8 keepers

    My first 6 keeper spots are decided. I need help with the last two. Here are the 6 I’m for sure keeping:

    Tom Brady, Leveon Bell, Christian MccCaffrey, Allen Hurns, Sterling Shepard, Evan Engram

    As you can tell, I’m weak at WR. Below are the following options for the last two spots:

    Corey Davis, Cameron Meredith, John Ross, Terrance Williams, Danny Amendola, James White

    What do you guys think?

    (Btw this is a team I just took over for this offseason and I’m trying to shape it the best I can haha)

    PPR or standard? Any round penalties for keepers?

    Not knowing anything about the league settings I’d say Davis and Meredith.
     
  11. 0.5 per reception. No penalties for keepers. We just pick 8 players to keep. I decided on Meredith as one of the two. The last spot is coming down to Davis or Ross.

    I’d say Davis has more potential/raw talent and is essentially the number one wr in Tennessee isn’t he? Ross would be my third choice

    I got gurley with the 6th pick the year of that draft, then someone dropped Gordon in like week 8 or something and I grabbed him too. Then I got Elliott two seasons ago because I had the 2nd pick and I got bell in the 2nd round our first year. The only regret I have is not taking fournette last draft, still went undefeated though and I rly hate that. Wish there were smarter owners in that league.

    I still remember getting gurley last year with like the 25th or so pick, really lucked out on that one.

    Is there a Chorus league?

    Also, are there any fantasy sites that offer something like this: I have a few friends lined up that want to do a league, but only three. Is there any way to start a league, invite them, and then if I can't find enough people to fill it out before the draft, just open it up to random people so it'll fill?

    Lol what. The. Heck. Your league is awful. Gordon and Gurley went 1 and 2 in our league. And dropped Gordon? What the heck? Your RBs are insane. What’s the rest of your lineup look like?

    In my league these are who’s being kept thus far:

    Elliot, Gurley, D. Johnson, Kamara, Hunt, D. Cook, and McCaffery.

    I luckily have Kamara in the 13th, but fuck, the first round is going to be so weird.

    Anyone have a place to rec for mock drafts? I usually just use ESPN, but was wondering if people have better luck elsewhere with people sticking around in them.
