So i play in a 10 man, ppr, 6 pt td league
I have the first pick
In debating on who to take with my 3rd pick. I can't decide on either rb or wr.
here is my current strategy for the first 7 rounds
My league starts qb, 2 rbs, 3 wrs, flex, te, pk, def
so we have potential for a lot of wrs on the roster
To make my choice between wr or rb comparable, whoever i draft in the 3rd round will essentially be my flex (since the RB slots will be filled my 1st 2 rounds and the 3 WR slots filled in rounds 4, 5, and 6)
If i go wr (say Julio Jones) I'll have a great starting line up but weak at rb bench
If i go rb (say reggie bush) I'll have a lower "projected" scoring team but a more well rounded bench. I won't have that elite wr on the team but i won't have to rely on luck down the road hoping my rbs stay healthy and that a late/waiver rb steps up to full in.
my roster will end up with a ton of WRs so ill have room for those "potential" players
rb is so scarce late that it may be better to get 3 good, then forget about it until the very end and maybe pick up 1 "potential"
either way ill end up with plenty of WRs
am I better off getting RB over with and not having to worry about finding a diamond in the rough
or should I solidify my starting lineup with an elite WR and not worry about depth at RB
to add to things, the other option is to get brees/rodgers with the 3rd pick. Theres a good chance that they will still be there so I can get them and just go WR the next 4 rounds. This would leave me in a similar situation as going WR in terms of RB depth but the difference between brees and matt ryan should hopefully compensate
Just looking for others thoughts
