Depends if it's non ppr or not and how many teams. I have always been a RB first drafter, no matter the format, but if it's open or 1/2 ppr, I'm going RB, WR, WR unless the RB's are falling off real quick.

Just my .02

This is the Shark League thread, so all leagues are 12 teams, start 1QB, 2WR, 2RB, 1TE, 1 W/R/T Flex, 1K, 1D, with 1 point per 5 carries and 1 point ppr.

I don't see an issue going RB/RB/RB or WR/WR/WR if that's where the value is at. Come the 4th round though, I don't know about drafting a bench player that early.

Valid point. However, there's an argument to be made for quality depth when it comes to injury/bye concerns or the quality left at the position you're thinking about drafting in the 4th.

Personally, I'm not going 3 in a row at any position, but everyone has their own philosophy and strategy.

For sure, there is no right way to build a team. I do think those two guys are crazy though, and I'm sure I'll lose to them both! :)

Mako 6 - Guy just took his first WR at 6.04. Allen Robinson.

Bold but not for me.

Guess who took the only WR?


Guess who keeps sniping me in the odd rounds? Once is a fluke. Twice is a trend. Thrice by round 5 is you are out to get someone.

I dont feel confident you were returned the favor.

You did get me in 2 & 4. Did not really want Cooper on my team.

That's not "bold," it's bad.

I like Robinson's talent, and I hope he has a great season, but the Bears' top WR is likely a low-end WR2 for fantasy purposes.

BS 7 again, guy just took his first WR at 7.02, Will Fuller. I can't imagine having Fuller as my WR1 with his health history. That's after drafting Mahomes, Goff and 4 RBs. So 2 bench players in the first 6 rounds.

First Josh Gordon sighting in the 6th round 7th pick....Jordan Howard still on the board in the 7th Miles Sanders was drafted 6-4

I took Ekeler @ 6-10 I feel pretty good about it.

I like Sanders and Ekeler in that range, but Gordon? he's high double digit rounds, or not at all.

I now it was said nobody cares how slow your draft is, but I made my 3rd round pick on Wednesday and on Saturday morning I'm still waiting for my 4th round pick to roll around.
