It's far too risky if you draft around that specific strategy then end up not being able to pull it off your season may fall apart. Also, the odds of CJ falling farther than pick 1.07 are very slim, I would not bank on drafting him. What I would suggest for anything larger than 12-teamers, is to have a better grasp on RB/WR 4's and 5's and sleepers in said positions. All in all, you just need to have a deeper understanding of the later rounds of a draft so you can continue to make value picks. Other than that, follow the draft as you normally would.
He's right. Drafting-to-trade later is never a good strategy. You end up with no depth at the positions you ignored, and other owners know this, and that means you rarely get full-value for a great QB because he's your "2nd" QB. I used to play in a 14-teamer, and you have to make sure your early picks count. Drafting players you can't start is a great way to ensure you'll be in RB or WR hell by week 5.
