I'm not acting like a know it all. But if I had followed the advice I gave there, I would've won my league fairly handily. I had kind of a rough draft, and I don't see the people I play with face to face. So the trade market was fairly prohibitive too. I flipped Mike Evans for Wentz, and I had been lucky enough to draft Ingram and Kamara so I was good there. Yes, you are right, the landscape of football is volatile and things can change in an instant. But those pointers I gave are very broad and aren't a huge departure from strategy. Seriously, cap what I said. What could hurt? If I'm wrong, I promise you I'll be lurking /sp/ around the same time next year and you can rub it in my face. I'll take it like a man and I'll admit if I'm wrong.
Another face you shouldn't forget to take at a good spot is Alex Collins. Remember that.
As far as rookies next year, look out for Saquon Barkley and Darrius Guice at RB, and Christian Kirk and James Washington at WR depending on where they land. 2017 was great for rookie RBs but poor for WR (aside from, ahem, Christian McCaffrey. I am going to consider picking up McCaffrey next year to see if his flexibility at the position actually makes a difference). I think you'll see a better crop of young receivers next year.>>80393882
Yeah he was a bit of a tweener, you're right. I'd be willing to scoop him up with a 2nd rnd. He fits into that tier of WRs that include Tyreek Hill, Jarvis Landry, Davante Adams, Will Fuller, Golden Tate, and Doug Baldwin. Still, I'd put Fitz at the top of this list.
I think that, depending on the draft order, I'd probably reach for an elite TE (Gronk, Kelce, Ertz) with my.. actually, that's a good question: do you guys think that taking one of them as high as your 3rd pick is a reach? Or is that good strategy? I found myself frustrated at the lack of quality TE options available pretty much throughout the entire season. Olsen went down, Hunter Henry frustrated, C. Brate trailed off etc
