A new season is coming
If you’re looking for a dynasty/keeper league we have a spot open featuring esteemed chorus members such as @CarpetElf @whitenblue88 myself and more!
12 team .5 PPR, The team isn’t great aside from a few pieces, but you will get the first pick of every round (non-snake draft)
One of my favorite threads on this site.
Ive been thinking about doing a fantrax dynasty league that's so deep you can keep players who are still in NCAA but at the same time managing stuff like that gets so tiring.
Sounds awesome but yeah I could see that being tough to manage.
My friends do a baseball one that reaches Single A. It’s nuts.
Yea, I have a deep baseball one where even the intnl draft matters a good amount. It's fun but just so annoying if you're the lm.
So who do we think are the top 5 ish rookies for a rookie draft? I have pick 5 and my rookie draft is Tuesday. Could use help from the beautiful chorus world
It's impossible to tell, every place I've seen differs on it.
it's Jacobs, Montgomery, sanders, Harry, Samuel, hardman in some order
yeah too early to tell
If what we all hope happens to Tyreek Hill, I think Hardman has to be in the top 5
Yeah this is the first year I haven't seen like a set in stone consensus among the 'experts'. But @PeacefulOrca nailed basically the top 5 that show up in most of the rankings.
Don’t sleep on Harris in New England.
I've seen alot of guys put Harris at number 2 in the rookie standings.
If first round today (I know it's early), who you got?
at #1? Barkley or Zeke IMO
Top 3 I could see any combo of Barkley/Zeke/CMC. I feel like 4 is where it gets dicey. Maybe Kamara, Gordon, Gurley?
I feel like this year I either want one of those top 3 picks or I want a bottom of the round pick. I could see if you're picking at the back of the first being able to grab a stud WR and whatever great RB is left. Or even going WR/WR or WR/TE (Kelce) and snagging some value RBs in the later rounds.
My top three would probably be
If the Saints would 100% commit to making Kamara a workhorse I could see that. But with them bringing in Latavius Murray (who was pretty good last year when Cook was hurt), I feel like he's going to step into the Ingram role. That's my only hesitance with Kamara in the top 3.
Due to volume, I would take Barkley and Zeke over Kamara. If Kamara had the volume given during the Ingram suspension he would be easy top 1-3 in that offense.
I think Barkley might be the most talented, but in that putrid offense (and now minus a particular WR) defenses will know where the ball is going. He's still going to get like 30 touches per game haha
Yeah this is exactly my take above. If Kamara was the workhorse like Barkley/Zeke/CMC then I'd feel okay with it. But he's not, so I don't lol.
I'm not sure kamara will ever be a top 3 back simply because he can't be the workhorse rb and also fool teams coming out of slants and other receiver looks the way they did with Ingram, teams defenses had real trouble stopping that duo. He'll still be top 5, especially in ppr. He can't play the Giants every week, unfortunately lol
Whatcha guys think of Gurley this year? Say he's there at 5 or 6 and Zeke, Bark, CMC, Kamara are taken....would you roll with Gurley or go with someone like Gordon/Conner?
If Gurley is 100% healthy, I don't see why he wouldn't be another Top 1 or 2 RB this year...key word though is IF.
Yeah, that's the big worry. Assuming we'll know more in August when were all drafting.
