3 Team Strategy

I feel like we’re looking at another week of really anything goes at 3 team. Still, I like the consistency with Tom Brady and I want the top end RB here. I don’t think there’s a huge gap at the top end of WR and really they’re all so variable anyways. I think I’d lean towards QB-RB-RB-WR-WR unless you can take LeVeon Bell in the first, then I’d go with Brady in the second or wait until the final round for my QB if Brady was gone.

6 Team Strategy

I really don’t like what starts happening towards the bottom of the top 12 at RB this week while I’m perfectly fine with rolling the dice at WR on a guy like Jarvis Landry or DeMaryius Thomas in decent matchups. Realistically, I’m also probably fine with any of the top 6 QB although I do lean towards wanting Brady again if possible. If Brady is available in round 2, I’m taking him, otherwise I’m waiting until the final round for my QB and loading up at RB early. I’d go RB-RB-WR-WR-QB (if no Brady, otherwise move rounds 2-4 down one round and take Brady in round 2).

10 Team Strategy

I’m really not enthused about the second half options for any of the positions in the ten team leagues. That being said, I’m predictably more comfortable taking a risk with my WR corps than I am with the bottom half of the RB and QB pools. I’d still love Brady but based on my trepidation to wait too long on RB, I’m leaning towards taking both RB very early then filling in the other positions. So I’d look to go RB-RB-QB-WR-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!
