12 team PPR, Draft thoughts

Postby Egg2828 » Sat Aug 11, 2012 1:45 pm

I have the #1 pick and will be taking A.Foster. Now the issue at hand is 2nd and 3rd round picks. In mock drafts I have landed Marshall/Nicks/Welker/AJ.Green types. But NO RB's seem to come back



I'm worried if I go WR WR 2/3rd picks I wont have crap for RB2. I will wait on a QB and get Romo/RIvers in later rounds. And typically let the top 3 TE go in 2/4th rounds as well.

General thoughts? PPR WR WR with Foster...Which RB is worth taking end of 2nd.
Richardson,GOre,Bradshaw,F.Jackson,R.Bush VS WR's

If Richardson falls, take him. If Mathews falls, take him. Otherwise, you will have a shot at BJGE/McGahee type RBs at the 4/5 turn. It's not sexy, but it works. Last season, I didn't pick a RB until the 4th round, and I landed Benson, McGahee and Green-Ellis. They weren't anything to brag about, but they got along just fine with my top WRs (not to mention that I had so much roster turnover that half of my team was cut and replaced by waiver transactions by mid-season, anyway).

After you've taken Foster, you don't have to reach for a RB if it's not good for you. Take what's there, what the draft board gives you, and don't force it or worry about picks that haven't been made, yet. If the RBs are picked clean, then the value is at QB or WR or TE (Gronk/Graham).

Here is a idea of the issue at hand.

Foster with which two of these guys? PPR!
I would find it hard not to draft Marshall and A.J Green in PPR then get a RB in the 4/5

Mike Wallace (PIT, 4) Stiff compition for WR1
A.J. Green (CIN, 8) Rookie went off and should only get better
Julio Jones (ATL, 7) Stud how do you pass him up...?
Darr Sproles (NO, 6) HUGE in PPR and Return yard league. Doubt he falls to me Top 6 RB
Jamaal Charles (KC, 7) Hillis...I'll wait on him
Brandon Marshall (CHI, 6 I think he will go off for 100/1300/10TD
Hakeem Nicks (NYG, 11) Safe play for 1100 10
Greg Jennings (GB, 10) Could kill it..someone has to on this team
Adrian Peterson (MIN, 11) RB 2..OK !!!
