Who are my first 2 picks in this league?

Postby BrewCrew6 » Sun Aug 05, 2007 11:34 am

I plan to go RB RB, heres the scoring system---- 1 PPR, 1 pt/10 yards rush, 1pt/20yards REC, 6 pts. all TD + 2 points per 20 yards of length (a 60 yard TD for ALL players is 12 points for the TD).

What players would you be looking for? I pick 11, but the league isn't super competitive. I guess I have a pretty good idea of the top 10 RB, but at number 14 who should I take? I think MJD will be there, and I think he could be huge in this scoring system. Thoughts?

In a PPR, MJD is a solid choice at 11-ish. I would keep an eye out for better players though like Westbrook or Bush even though they shouldn't be there. However, you could hope someone grabs a WR in the first round and maybe Manning since you say the league isn't that competitive.

Well, WR are undervalued (1 pt per 20 yards) and a WR has never gone in the 1st round, but I think Manning will be picked.

I agree. You could get MJD and Henry. MAroney and Rudi might also be there. Any 2 of those 4 would set you up decently.

Are we assuming Bush and Westbrook will be gone already?

I'm assuming they will be but would take them if they fell into my lap at 11.

Maroney and Henry if you can. Otherwise you might want and grab up Jacobs...that's what I would do.

Grab Jacobs in RD2? Or do you mean take some other position and grab Jacobs later?

Reggie Bush and/or westbrook should be there at pick 11. They are huge in a ppr league as they usually get 8-10 looks at them per game, leading to 5-7 receptions.

As for round 2, MJD is a solid choice.

And if edge is there for some reason in round 3, snatch him up as well.

Yeah, I think a PPR duo of Reggie Bush and MJD would be pretty huge if I could get it. If not, Ill take the best RBs left on my draft board. I'm ranking them 1-14 and will take the best two left in the first two rounds.
