So I will have the #1 pick in my draft this year. It's a 12 team league, no flex, non ppr snake draft. I will go with McCoy with my first pick, but then I'm up in the air with how to attack the turn. Any suggestions?

Umm, how the hell are we supposed to answer that poll without the specific player options availible? Grabbing Graham or Gronk there would be great, but they probably won't be there, should I still suggest you take a TE?

That's kinda high to take Colt isn't it?

Though you probably would need a QB2 at the turn.

It really just depends on who is there. I also draft first in a league and I will take one of the big three, just don't know who yet. My "plan" is to take another RB with my 2nd pick and the best WR at my 3rd pick. That would/could all change depending on the flow of the draft. If two top 10 WR are still sitting there, I go WR/WR instead of WR/13th rated RB. I don't plan on taking a QB with my first 3 picks but if the 3rd round comes around and it's between Peterson, Lynch, Wallace, Green or Stafford, I would have to take Stafford.

So, in short, you really can't make a plan and stick to it because you just don't know who will be there.

There are about 15 RBs worth taking by 3.01. If one of them is there, make sure to select him.

There are 2 TEs worth taking. Probably neither is there, but get one if you can.

There are 4 QBs worth taking, maybe 5 if you like Stafford. This is your next idea.

After that, 4 WRs makes 25. I don't really want to take a WR early in that format, but this won't kill you.

My best guess is that you end up with RB/WR, but be flexible. Do not take a pair of top 10 WRs like say Marshall and Green, unless you start 3 WR this is a significant overplay. Even if you do, this year is loaded with good WR prospects at the 4/5 turn for the early seats.

Yes, best player available. Don't get stuck in "position" traps.

I have not heard many people that set on McCoy over Rice and Foster, but that's your decision.

At the 2/3 turn I like what Agenda42 had to say! Don't fall in love with any players there because something good could fall. My gut tells me RB/WR, but it could easily be RB/QB or if you're really lucky and Gronk or Graham slip, RB/TE. I am certain that one of those picks has to be a RB though.

picked WR/RB but more likely would be RB/WR in 12 team non ppr for me. all depends on the flow of the draft ultimately.

As others mentioned, depends who is there. I never come in with set positions. Maybe I have an idea, but I always look at all options and determine the best value, etc. If you have tunnel vision on a certain position, that is when you miss a player that slipped that shouldn't have and then you will kick yourself later.

Completely agree...I had my draft last night and I was really set on the idea I was going to go RB-RB with my first two picks. But after I got Rice and it got back to me, there was a big run at RB and Fitz and Gronk fell to me at the 2/3 turn, so I abandoned that strategy and wasn't going to pass up on that value there. You just got to adapt to the way the draft unfolds and prepare yourself to change up your strategy if good value at other positions falls to you.

First off why would you take McCoy over Arian and Rice? I have them ranked Arian Rice McCoy

First and foremost, If Stafford or Newton falls, get one. Pairing one of those RB's with a top tier QB will be dynamite.

If Graham or Gronk falls to you, grab one.

If Julio/Fitz/Jennings is there, not a bad pick.

The 2/3 elbow can be advantageous this year, as you might see some premium players slip through the cracks. Since you have no flex I think it would be great for you if you can get a premium QB/TE at that elbow.

^^^this all the way

I would look to see if WR/WR makes sense but it all depends on who is available and if you can get the biggest bang for the value at the elbow.

I would go RB and Graham/Gronk if available.

I cant fault someone for taking McCoy first myself. I see the top 3 as being pretty interchangable this year. I agree fully with everything else you said here though.
