2018 Fantasy Football Discussion Thread

Postby Konatown » Mon Jul 23, 2018 5:16 pm

Figured I’d kick off a thread with fantasy draft season quickly approaching.

My 12 team (standard scoring league) distributed draft orders and I am currently picking 5th. I’ve pretty much kissed Gurley and Bell goodbye but if Zeke or David Johnson fall my plan is to scoop them up. If all 4 are gone I’m left with AB or any remaining RB. This league is built on RB’s, I’m going back and forth if I should go for Saquan Barkley/WR in the 2nd such as Adams/Evans,etc. Or do I go AB and hope a RB like McCoy or Freeman falls to my 2nd pick? Really don’t wanna be stranded with a McCaffrey type as my main RB1, so I’m leaning towards Barkley then WR in the 2nd, even though AB is the consensus higher rated player.

Thoughts?

WR are deeper than RB this year so I'd scoop a RB in round 1.

Oh man, this time of year is rough. I always start reading this stuff and think "Jeez, I have no idea who's even going in Round 1.", "Isn't David Johnson injured?" or "Is Barkley really going that high?"

Time to start reading articles and listening to podcasts.

Howard. Drake played well down he stretch but I prefer Howard’s body of work. Cohen may steal some carries but Howard is still the main guy. I’m hoping to nab in him the 3rd if I’m lucky.

I didn’t really think of Barkley as an option at first, but with all the recent rookie RB success I think he’s got top 5 potential based on the number of carries/catches he’s sure to get. Plus NY added some nice pieces to their OL in Solder/Hernandez.

Barkley is more valuable in a keeper league than a year-to year league. Once Eli is gone, as long is Barkley isn't complete garbage, he could easily get 400 touches/year for the foreseeable future.

Howard. He should see an increase in his pass catching opportunities with Nagy running the show. And while Drake is probably the #1 back in Miami, I wouldn't ignore the presence of Damien Williams, Kallen Ballage and even 78 year old Frank Gore.

Late 1st for sure but personally I don't trust Pat Shurmur's offense. It's big play dependent, but Barkley and Beckham are big play guys. I just don't think with Eli at the helm Barkley will see many unloaded boxes. He's going to have a tough go of it early.

I'd go with Drake. Sorry for the late chime in.

We keeping it on Yahoo? I'd be up for seeing if we want to switch it to ESPN. This is literally the only league I know that's on Yahoo.

What difference does it make?
