1.02 RB Jonathan Taylor
2.01 WR Tee Higgins
2.02 WR Brandon Aiyuk
2.06 WR Denzel Mims
2.12 WR Bryan Edwards
3.01 RB Anthony McFarland


Exactly what I wouldve done (although I’d be interested in knowing who you passed on at the 3.01 for McFarland)


Darrynton Evans and Josh Kelly at RB. McFarland been ahead of both of them for me this whole time. I think his ceiling is the highest by far based on his athletic profile, Conner being blah and a year away from FA, and Pitts top 5 Oline.
Had no more room at WR.
Trautman at TE.

I had a lot of draft capital this season due to trades last year, so it was a big year for my dynasty team in terms of the rookie draft.

The Williams opt-out in KC made the first pick a lot easier, especially in ppr. Fourth pick, I would've been happy with either Dobbins or Swift, whoever was left.

I liked my receiver pick at 10 (Ruggs and Jefferson, along with Lamb and Jeudy, went ahead of me at WR) , and then moved up to 11 because I wanted to secure Burrow. He wouldn't have lasted until my 2.10 based on the history of my league. At the end of the draft (3 rounds), I was happy to get a good shot at one of the top tight ends in a good situation for the future.

1.01 RB Clyde Edwards-Helaire
1.04 RB D'Andre Swift
1.10 WR Jalen Reagor
1.11 QB Joe Burrow
3.10 TE Adam Trautman

Really like Swift, and Reagor where you got them. Can't really complain about going chalk with the 1.01 (although I'm less enthused with CEH in Dynasty).

I'm not really sure why Burrow is being selected in the 1st round of 1QB dynos. I'm assuming this is a 6pt TD/-4 INT league or some other QB heavy league?

Looks pretty good to me. Draft positions are all aligned with the rookie draft I just did, except Edwards went at 2.04, so you got good value there.

No, not really QB heavy. I'm pretty solid at all my other positions, plus still had young guys from last year at WR hoping to pan out (unfortunately Hurd is one of them, but this was before the injury). I could've gotten him in the mid-2nd, where the QBs usually go (after the top RBs and WRs are gone), but I had been dealing with the guy at 1.11 and new he was willing to trade out of that spot, so I went for it.

QBs are cheap as second-year players, so I can see how he develops and then still keep him next year for a very small amount of money, and won't have to worry about affecting cap space until his third season. People keep a lot of the younger, cheaper quarterbacks in this league and because of their low cost.

just completed a trade for Zack Moss (baby Marshawn). Had to give up Justin Jefferson and Daniel Jones and got Wentz and Moss. I had to overpay but i'm expected Moss to be worth alot more after a solid rookie yr.

I wouldn't call upgrading from Jones to Wentz to make that swap an overpay. Fair value going both ways.

good. i feel like it was fair. full trade was.

I gave- Jefferson, Jones, Hunter Henry (2TE superflexx)

received- Wentz, Moss, jarvis landry.

my team is in rebuild mode but i went against the grain just to get Moss. And most people in my dynasty are high on Jones because he's only 23 and a starting qb. I woudn't call Wentz that much of an upgrade...but i probably like Jones more than anyone.

Man, that trade is going to be a real shoot sandwich when Wentz gets hurt again and Hurts takes the job forever. My condolences.

Talking to my buddy who coaches for the Bills and was asking about the RB situation

"We'll use both of them, but I would say Moss is the guy to have"

Take that for whatever it's worth

anyone willing to share thoughts on rookie te's? i currently have irv smith, rudolph and mcdonald. i am high on smith long-term, but it is easily my weakest position and i draft 1.10 in a ten person league and have no second round pick want to focus there.

He's obviously really busy with camp and what not.. asked him about Davis and he just replied - "baller"
