    So the 2018 FF season is upon us. Who are some of your guys this year. Do you have any sleepers? How do you feel about this years crop of rookie RB's or how do you think last years crop will fair this year? I keep seeing Barkley inside the top 10 in ppr formats.

    I could see Barkley being a top 10 pick, maybe even top 5 but I'm not sure it's sound strategy. All of sudden there seems to be more bellcow RBs than before (these are not ranked)
    Gurley
    Johnson
    Elliot
    Bell
    Cook
    Hunt
    Kamara
    Barkley
    Fournette

    it think the next tier is pretty damn good too
    McCaffrey
    McCoy
    Howard
    Mixon (maybe a guy I take a bit earlier than he's ranked)
    Penny
    Guice
    McKinnon

    getting a set of really productive WRs seems a bit more challenging that before.

    I still probably go B2B RBs unless Brown or Jones is there for me though.

    I've got pick 11 in my money league, 12 team .5ppr IDP league. I very well may go back to back to back WR if things fall the right way. I did the same thing last year and picked WR, WR, TE, WR and finished 3rd. 2nd highest point total.


    Seems like projecting WR's is easier and if you can get two studs early, then round it out with a 3rd more consistent WR as a flex it's a winning combo.

    I'm hoping for a combo of Julio or Odell and pairing them up with an AJ or Michael Thomas. Then following that up with a RB and someone like Crabtree or Fitz (guys that should have steady production)

    After that I'll draft a shit ton of RB's from the rookie pool and 3rd tier guys.

    Hearing Freeman will be a bell cow in Denver, might be undervalued with upgrades at QB and OLine there.

    Him and RoJo II are going to be targets of mine. I'm hopeful I can get 1 or both at the 5-6 turn.

    When I am choosing between two guys I like, I will take a peak at them. Like for me at pick 11. I may be looking at Julio and Odell seeing their schedule might sway me one way or another.

    Damn skippy ! I've already let the guys know they are buying my bed this year. Either that or they are paying for my kids Disney passes, those things aren't cheap.

    As if McCoy's stock hadn't dropped enough.


    The #Bills did, in fact, lose AJ McCarron to a hairline fracture, throwing their QB battle into flux. He’s going to miss several weeks, but no exact timeline https://t.co/sLNAdhghbI

    Anyone getting the FF leagues running this year? We're starting to get close and should try to have them set to draft in a week or two.
