What I'm seeing at this point for next year is:
1. Unlikely any RB comes into the NFL via this years draft and has any immediate fantasy impact at the position.
2. Once you get past the first 15 or so RB's, none of what's left looks like a viable RB2 each week and what's left bears more resemblance to a flex play.
3. The QB position is only going to be deeper next year if Kaepernick and Russell Wilson emerge as viable low end QB1's and at this point, there's no way I'm taking a QB in Rd1 or Rd2
4. My perceived shortage of reliable RB's for next year will likely have me draft a player like Jamal Charles ahead of any QB or WR including Megatron
The first half of next years PPR redrafts should all be RB's in picks 1-6 in whatever order you like:
Peterson / Foster / Martin / Richardson / Rice / McCoy (not worried about his injury or Bryce Brown)
If you're drafting in the back half of Round 1 and don't take a RB with your Round 1 pick, you have to strongly consider taking one of the following with your Rd 2 pick because these are the only guys (IMO) that even remotely resemble a low end RB1.
Jamal Charles / Lynch / Ridley
Let someone else take Chris Johnson / McFadden / Gore / Forte / McGahee
Good post, but i would add alfred morris to the list of low end #1 guys... If he continues his solid performance.
I agree. Morris is in that low-end RB1 / high-end RB2 category if he keeps it up this year.
I also agree on the take about letting someone else take CJ(-)5K, DMC, Gore, Forte and McGahee.
I will load on RB's the first few rounds of the draft (if I can), but will take the best player available, in my opinion. The QB position is going to be very deep next year. If Indy adds any offensive weapons this season, I will probably have Luck as my #1 QB target as later-round pick. I doubt he gets taken ahead of Rodgers, Brady, Brees, RGIII, Newton, Ryan, Peyton or Eli next year - in my league at least.
