Picking 4th and 6th in my 12 team dyno league (full ppr, 1.5ppr for TE)
I'm big on Hockenson. Not trying to be a homer either.
If Miles Sanders is available at 4 that's a no brainer right? Try and get Hockenson at 6?

Who would you rather own between DK Metcalf and TJ Hockenson?

i don't have DK that high.
In a TE prem Hock might go earlier than 6 so have a backup plan
Sanders at 4 isn't a no brainier IMO, but plenty of knowledgeable sharks think so.

My biggest worry is Hock won't be there for you at 6

Edit: personally, I'd make sure I got Hock by picking him at 4

I kind of feel that too. Guy picking at 5 has George Kittle and big needs at RB but this is a poor RB class so BPA may prevail.

Don't shy from "reaching" for your guy this year. It's top heavy, with only 3 guys I'd consider with that 4 pick in your league. Go get Hock at 4 and let the rest fall to you

Yep
And in TE prem Hock is 4.
I'd downgrade Sanders. But not much. Still 1st round. Which is the great thing about super flex and TE premier leagues. All kinds of RBs and Wrs available later in rounds.

Conclusion...

Hock went 3rd right before me.
F-bomb.
Got Sanders and Fant at 4 and 6.
Had two picks in the 2nd.
Got Haskins and Isabella.

Damn. Tough on Hock.
But Fant is a good consolation prize. I'm looking at that same situation opinion a TE premier/SF league. I have the 5th pick. And this news isn't encouraging. I'll have to choose between Fant and Haskins, I think, if Hock goes 1-4.
But your draft is exceptional.
Sanders, Fant, Isabella, Haskins is a really strong draft.
Congratulations!
