3 Team Strategy

I would be fine with any of the top 3 QB this week although the obvious home run play here is DeShaun Watson. Everybody assumes he’s going to go off against the Colts and based on his recent successes you can make a very strong argument for that. However, the Colts aren’t that great so he isn’t likely to get into a shootout like he did last week against Seattle. Either way, if you truly believe this week, I’m fine with taking Watson early, otherwise, QB should be your last round selection. I think the biggest drop-off occurs at RB for the 3 team options and I’d look to go with RB-RB-WR-WR-QB ideally.

6 Team Strategy

With a multitude of teams on bye this week we run dry of quality options rather quickly. You’re going to have to sacrifice somewhere and in this case I still want to get top end RB and I’m willing to take a chance with my second WR. I also really want a top 3 QB if possible. I think Dez Bryant in particular is a WR that you can get in the 3rd round (or 4th if you’re lucky) and can pay big dividends this week while the Cowboys try to figure out their RB situation. I’d like to go RB-RB-QB-WR-WR here.

10 Team Strategy

In the 10 team options we start getting into mega reach range in some cases. While I was all-in on top RB and QB in the smaller draft situations, I really don’t want to get stuck relying on the low end WR choices this week in a 10 teamer. I still want a RB to be my first pick but I’m going to hope to get lucky with one of the lower QBs in order to move WR up my list for this sized draft. My order would preferably be RB-WR-WR-RB-QB here.

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!

    So obviously we’re off to a great start this week with McCoy rated #1! Sorry about that one – this is why I always tell people to trade McCoy every week in Buy Low, Sell High but I didn’t think this would be the week he’d suck.

    Either way, with the new news you can move Ezekiel Elliott up to #2 on the RB list and cross Alfred Morris off. Thanks!
