Before the season and even training camps begun, based on Yahoo! Fantasy Football Rankings, I drafted a team in a Public League with basic scoring settings (Non-PPR, RB favored). Here is the team I drafted from the 10th/10 position.
Round 1, Pick 10: Aaron Rodgers. I got my Top 3 QB by taking the 1st QB in the draft after all RB’s were taken with the exception of Gronk at #5, Antonio Brown at #4, ODB Jr at #8, and Dez Bryant at #9.
Round 2, Pick 1: Calvin Johnson. I got my No. 1 WR whose right after the top WR’s already taken as stated above.
Round 3, Pick 10: Mike Evans. As a rookie he had huge numbers and separated himself from the younger WR’s proving he can duplicate the big stats and big plays. Hopefully, Jameis gets him the ball.
Round 4, Pick 1: Melvin Gordon. My first RB drafted is a Rookie with huge upside. Strong and quick, he will carry most of the load for an already talented Chargers team who will be competing for a division title and playoff spot in December.
Round 5, Pick 10: Andre Ellington, in a non-PPR league this could hurt me but Ellington is still the No. 1 back in Arizona and will get Rec Yards along with Gordon having two young backs who can catch out of the backfield will make up for the PPR being gone.
Round 6, Pick 1: Jordan Matthews, Now the No. 1 WR in Philly’s fast, high-powered offense and will get plenty of targets, Rec Yards and touchdowns. I feel like this is the perfect position to take my 3rd WR of the draft and solidify my strong WR’s. All three have big play potential and play in offenses that will get them ball and let them make make moves after the catch and get in the end zone.
Round 7, Pick 10: Joique Bell. Ellington having health issues, grabbing another pass catching RB was essential. If Bell stays healthy, he will be the No. 1 guy in Detroit ahead of Rookie Ameer Abdullah and will get the touches he needs at the goal line. If they choose to pass in the red zone, I have Megatron already in the lineup.
Round 8, Pick 1: Jason Witten. One of the best Fantasy Tight Ends over the past decade and a staple in the Cowboys lethal pass attack. As one of Romo’s trusted targets, he will be a safety blanket and a touchdown machine every week.
Round 9, Pick 10: Pierre Garcon
Round 10, Pick 1: Miami Defense. A little early to draft a DEF in a Public League, but this could possibly be the most fantasy points from a defense this year with big time additions and run stoppers all over the field.
Round 11, Pick 10: Arizona Defense. See above.
Round 12, Pick 1: Giovanni Bernard. Best available player this late in the draft is an absolute steal, even as a No.2 RB in this system, if the No.1 goes down with injury or starts to turn the ball over, Bernard is RB 1 or RB2 every Sunday.
Round 13, Pick 10: Tre Mason. Also, VERY good value this late in the draft as mySleeper pick, in my opinion as Rookie RB Todd Gurley isn’t 100% healthy starting the season.
Round 14, Pick 1: Doug Baldwin. Will see more targets this year than any other with attention drawn to Jimmy Graham.
Round 15, Pick 10: Reggie Bush. Dropped after the draft for Kicker Cody Parkey.
