Tonight's DRAFT STRATEGY advice? WHIR

Postby pman555 » Tue Aug 28, 2012 10:42 am

12 team H2H keeper league. 1 player kept.
I have the 3rd position in the draft, snake style.
6pts per TD pass.
1pt per reception.

Here are the players being kept:
Aaron Rodgers
Tom Brady
Drew Brees
Matt Stafford
MJD
Arian Foster
Ray Rice
LeSean McCoy (MINE)
Calvin Johnson
Jamaal Charles
Jimmy Graham
Andre Johnson

Here is a screenshot of the list of the top players available to draft:

Here is my draft strategy:
Since all of the elite QBs are taken, I go for CJ2K or Forte as my FIRST pick, if available, to supplement LeSean McCoy at RB.
Then, I'll see if there is a run on QBs. Since 5 teams will already have a QB, I'm hoping I can grab Big Ben as a bargain with my THIRD pick, if not I'll have to grab a QB with my SECOND pick. For my SECOND pick, I'd prefer to draft the best available WR, like Wes Welker or Roddy White. From then on, I'd try to get best available WRs and handcuff RBs, and a TE somewhere in there.

What are your thoughts, Cafe? Any better ideas? I'm open to suggestions!

If CJ2K is there, it's a no-brainer. After that, I'd go for Forte and then Mathews.

No way I'm risking a 1st or 2nd round pick on MJD at this point.

Hmm, so you would pick Forte and Mathews before MJD? Interesting...
EDIT: Nevermind...I didnt realize that MJD was already kept...no way I could draft him anyway. Yikes.

For some reason I'm not feeling CJ. It's a full ppr, so I'd probably go Forte or even Mathews. There are players that aren't being kept that I don't see on the screencap. What about McFadden or Julio Jones?
I don't see anything wrong with your draft strategy though. It sounds really good to me.

Well, here's what I ended up with:

QB - Vick
RB - McCoy (keeper)
RB - Forte
WR - Mike Wallace
WR - Dwayne Bowe
WR - Michael Crabtree
WR/TE - Antonio Gates
D/ST - Lions
K - Bironas
Bench - Roy Helu, Jay Cutler, Mike Williams, Shane Vereen, Jared Cook, Brandon LaFell, Michael Floyd

I think I messed up with my Gates pick, but we'll see.

I think you did pretty well. I think Gates will be pretty good this year. I have him on one of my teams.
