3 Team Strategy

I’m fine with any of the top 6 receivers this week. I would definitely like to have Aaron Rodgers for sure as he usually does well against the Bears at home and I’d make an effort to draft him a bit earlier because of it. I also have more trust in the top 4 RB this week than the following two. Ultimately, I’d look to go RB-RB-QB-WR-WR for the 3 teamers.

6 Team Strategy

Really no matter what with the 6 team options, you’re going to have to take a chance somewhere because if you want a top QB then you will have to fill out with guys like CJ Anderson or Stefon Diggs (who is always a gamble with high variance swings). I still think I’d rather go with a top end QB but I feel a little more comfortable with the lower end of the top 12 RB than WR so I’d look to draft this way: RB-QB-WR-WR-RB.

10 Team Strategy

The bottom end of the QB and RB pools is particularly hard to fully trust this week whereas the bottom end of the WR are probably okay just not flashy. I’d rather trust a guy like Jarvis Landry this week than Jay Cutler or Chris Johnson. That being said, I’d be looking at the following for 10 team drafts: RB-QB-WR-RB-WR.

That’s it for this week! Get out there and win some drafts! Also, as usual, please don’t be shy about asking questions or commenting in the area below!
