12 team league, 8th pick. What to do? WHIR

Postby bisklimpkit » Wed Aug 29, 2012 12:04 pm

Like the title says, I'm in a 12 team league and I'm drafting 8th. It's a CBS standard scoring league, starting 1 QB, 2 RB, 3 WR, 1 TE, 1 K, 1 DST, 5 bench spots. Top 3 RBs and top 3 QBs will be gone, likely leaving me with a choice of Chris Johnson, Darren McFadden, MAYBE Calvin Johnson, etc. What do you do here? I'm thinking I should still go RB, RB in the first two rounds (unless Graham falls to me in the 2nd round). Seriously considering not taking any WR until the 4th and even waiting on a QB until the 6th or 7th. Thoughts? Reasons?

Leave a link and I'll see if I can help you out at all. Thanks in advance!

I agree with passing on Calvin at the 8 spot, wr is just too deep. I would go DMC then Cris Johnson.

Though WR is extremely deep this year, I would not pass on Calvin. I would be targeting:

Chris Johnson

In this order, if anyone falls then take the next best guy. Though every player is technically a gamble, you really do not want to gamble too much with you first pick. There are too many question marks and inj risks with other guys.
