How do you feel about Ryan Mathews at #19? PPR

Postby GeneralTsou » Fri Aug 10, 2012 10:23 pm

I have the 6th and 19th pick in 12-team PPR

Originally I was going to take Ryan Mathews at #6. In light of last nights events, that won't be happening. I will likely be selecting Chris Johnson at 6. If he were to fall to me at #19, is he worth the gamble knowing he will miss some games? The upside is huge.

I would take him at that spot. He is only missing a game or so. Just lock up the 2nd guy (unknown at this point) later to cover you for a week

What is your third pick and when is this draft?

Third pick is #30 and the draft is September 2nd (just a few days before the season starts)

By the time you draft, you should have an idea about Mathews' progress. I'd think the 19th pick is about where he will go, despite missing a couple of weeks. He hurt his collarbone, not his knee, so go for it.

I agree. I still want to believe in Mathews this year. He may miss a couple games, but when he returns I like to think he'll be lighting it up. If he is there at 19, I would take him

Also agree, Mathews is great value at that point in the draft. However, he may not be around that late by September though, since there will probably be enough progress in his recover that he's at least wearing pads and that will probably increase his draft position. He won't be taking hits obviously, but he'll be at practice.

I figure at 19 I can get one of Mathews, Charles, Sproles, Julio Jones. I REALLY want Julio

In a standard league, Julio's still there. In a PPR, it's a crapshoot - he's probably still there, but there's a possibility he's gone. Don't forget, anyone picking before you in the 2nd picked behind you in the 1st, so they're more likely to go for reliability at this point. Their first pick likely wasn't a hugely reliable RB so they'd be going for a more solid WR who will give them consistency. If they went WR they're probably looking at a RB before they run out of time. If they went QB - well, who knows what they'll do at this point. My guess though is he's still there at #19.

I took him at 21 in a mock draft last night and was happy to get him. He's only missing at most the first two weeks and will still be able to do running exercises to stay in shape.
