Lagarette Blount- How high should I reach?

Postby Giants25 » Mon Aug 22, 2011 2:27 pm

He is an obvious sleeper this year, that I want bad.

I am in a 2qb, 10 team, .5 pt PPR league with the with the 5th

Do you think I need to nab him at 25 overall, or do you think I can grab him at 36?

Last year- our top 30 picks: 10 qb's, 10 rb's, and 10 wr's. Tough question, but trying to get the best value of my picks possible.

Thank you

Tough to say... If it was full 1pt/rec I'd say you'd be reaching even at 36.

.5PPR and I would probably avoid him at the 25 slot. Let the other guys reach for 2-down RB's and think about guys like DMC/Bradshaw/Felix who will probably average an extra 2pts per game due to the 3rd down dumpoffs that Blount probably won't get.

Here's mine:

He'll probably be there at 36. I drafted him there in my PPR league and I don't regret it. Even if he isn't there on 3rd downs a lot he can still be a solid RB2 I think. Michael Turner 2.0 IMO. And he definitely has some upside if his offense has improved this year.

I am strongly considering taking him @ 16 in 12 team Non-PPR league

-I have him ranked higher than DMac/SJAX/Forte/Hillis

*Blount is gonna stay on field on more 3rd downs this year. He didn't even play 1st 4 games last year. I expect 1300 12 TD from Blount this year. ;-D

He'll probably be there at 36, 25 would be a huge reach.

Don't let your hopes of nabbing him prevent you from grabbing 2 better RB's in the 1st 2-3 rounds if they are available.

id put my money on him being there at 36 unless someone reaches for him. i think he is going to be good...but taking him at he pick before would be reaching i think.

Is 1200-1300 10-12 TD's worth a "reach"

I would say 25, if he is there. No way he lasts until 36 in normal leagues but I just rechecked your initial post and saw 2 QB league so I'd say he might be there at 36 but if you really want him grab him at 25. I saw him as him as high as #7 RB.

Average draft position for Blount lands him around #30. Dude has no tandem back to worry about. I bet he is not there at 36. .5 ppr or not a td is still worth 6, no?
