  1. Joe Mixon David Johnson Todd Gurley and why? really appreciate everyones opinions. i change daily but currently lying with Mixon
  2. Thank you... this is strongly the approach i am considering. to get a set and forget TE with the hopes of getting RBs like Ingram, Henry, Jacobs, Guice, Coleman later in there draft. Theres alot of RBs this year with big potential
  3. I actually do like it for a player of DJs pass catch abilities, yeh... especially when he has been quoted saying he prefers to play out of shotgun, and its what he was accustomed to in his college days...
  4. Thanks again mate....... Bell and Gurley have me the most concerned definitely due to Gurleys injuries and Bell in a new offence... Connor and Samuel for that matter produce at the Steelers with Bell not there..... the Steelers schemes and coaching and offence are a big factor in Bells success and hes not fortunate enough to be in a team of those capabilities anymore... no doubt he is a star... but will the line provide time and space? Will defences just cover everything Bell does in the pass with no real other threats there... i really like Mixon and DJ running out of the shotgun... Mixon does have me excited but i feel like taking him ahead of those other names is silly, for some reason.. haha i cant work out why
  5. Thanks mate... can i pick ya brains why you went with DJ over those other names?
  6. Predicting the first 7 picks look something like this - saquon zeke mccaffrey kamara gordon hopkins adams ...? who is the safest pick(s) at the 8/9 loop and why out of - DJ, Bell, Gurley, Mixon, Connor etc. (Id prefer to go RB, RB with the depth of WRs available later)
  7. Thanks mate. Easily mistaken without tone or sarcasm over written formats I guess. my bad. as for the ADPs you've listed, I use the same... but as for Hopkins falling, and some of those other varying ADPs that might seem puzzling to my previous message.... I KNOWWWW my league will be RB heavy in the first 2 rounds and that TE is seen as a pivotal area. it has been crucial in our playoffs the last 4 season and everyone is aware of it. TE, is easily the shallowest position to fill after those 3 mentioned names and im sure you are aware of that, granted OJ Howard, Engram, Henry etc could perform awesomely... but after the big 3, there isn't much left and its somewhat a headache. so I know the lads in my league will panic. like I said, just spit balling, passing on Hopkins, Adams, Mixon etc. at my 9th pick will be very hard to do. but to gain Kelce in a positional value area where he posts basically RB numbers when most of the league will be running the wire a lot of the weeks, is also very tempting..... given it causes panic and ruins everyones draft planning..
  8. Thanks for your response mate, even if it is a little condescending...... i may of not got my idea across properly. The other 7 coaches all mock and pre plan. They all understand the value of a elite TE. the main idea behind this strategy is to cause a stir...... i only need for 2 or 3 of the 7 coaches to panic and steer away from preseason plans for it to have some advantage for me. None of the guys in my league will be planning on a TE going in the top 10, and i know “atleast” 2 guys that will want to follow trend and take Ertz and/or Kittle as soon as they can to avoid the TE headache later on the board...... i have mocked with this approach and without, and the WR/RBs left when i do it and Ertz and kittle have followed, are names like Dalvin cook, Juju, Chubb, Evans. all these names that arent there when i dont do the Kelce at 2 move... and im left with Amari, Fournette, etc... basically its - 2,Kelce 3,Juju 4,cook/chubb Or 2, Hopkins/Mixon, 3 Fournette, 4, Amari (and take a bust TE later in draft) i hope that makes sense
  9. Hey guys. Whats everyones thoughts? Im drafting at 8th in our 8 team league in my real draft... have a strategy planned that im thinking about. Its Only early days.... but what are your thoughts on taking Kelce at 2.1 (9th overall).... plan is to get the league to reach on Kittle and Ertz between my 2nd round (9th overall) and 3/4 round picks (24/25th overall) essentially causing more players to drop to my pick.... before people say “who takes a TE that early, the last few seasons i have guaged that our league dynamic understands the worth of a set and forget TE that can post RB or top teir WR numbers consistently. They demand high trade value if need be aswell... like i said, early days.... and this is why we mock and do preseason forums i guess, but if me taking Kelce at 2.1 could cause a domino effect on Ertz and Kittle before my 3/4 picks at the loop, effectively 2 guys that “shouldn’t” of been available - now are...... and i got Kelce. Not to mention to depth if WRs in those rounds, and guys like Fournette, Dwilliams, MIngram etc all RBs going in those 3/4 rounds also... Cheers guys. Really appreciate everyones opinions...
  10. Its definitely a bold strategy... to take both TEs off the board early to thin out the position for the rest of the league, and rely heavily on the best trade offer..... probly a little too rich for my blood, but definitely not dumb in my opinion.
  11. Thank you... This guy gets it... The want for Kelce as a set and forget TE, is a big part in this... but the fact that it causes fallers from round 2 onwards means it could potentially land me a better team than i should be able to draft... Throw in the possibility of Mahomes going early causing a similar trend in the QB area... Thank you.
  12. hahaha. if I choose to go with the RB1/WR1 option, I would seriously consider doing that or Hunter Henry. I went this approach last year with Trey Burton at round 8 and was left picking up the pieces all season in the TE area. cost me crucial matchups until I took a risk and traded for Gronk who wasn't any better. (got him cheap, don't worry haha).
  13. I persoanlly would rather take RB1 and WR1 at my 8-9 pick, i would have first pick at WR of Nuk, Adams, Hill, Thomas, Julio and AB. But, i think the choice to pass on one of these big names to get Kelce (whos numbers arent that far behind this crop) alongside his positional value being that TE is tough to come by. I know once Kelce goes in my league, that Ertz and Kittle go straight after..... without hesitation.....Our league from previous seasons understands the importance of TE set and forget too much. Kelce literally carried the coach who finished top seed in regular season to a 11-3 record... I dont see Ertz or Kittle making it to 24 if i dont take Kelce at TE1 off the board. If i can cause a panic domino effect at TE early, that “should” push WR names such as Evans, OBJ, Juju, Green, Allen down to my 24 pick for my WR1 slot. While aiming at guys in the 5/6 turn around like Golladay for WR2.
  14. Thanks mate. I personally think in an 8 teamer, he “should” make it to the third round also... but i really dont see him making it to my end of the round, 3.8 pick... the round 2.1 pick (9 overall) is to cause panic amongst the league, mess up any predraft plants they may of had, gain me a “set and forget” at a very shallow position... If another coach was to panic, and take Ertz and Kittle once Kelce gets reached on... that pushes 2 guys back down further to my 3.8 pick that “shouldnt” of been available for me that late in round 3....
  15. Thanks for that... I am im a few leagues yeh... some are 12 team PPR aswell..... The one i am in referance to however, is my main league as we have a cash buy in, a plaqued trophy and a private facebook page with weekly awards for best coaching move/decision and penalties for the worst one..... voted by the league... Everyone gets into and its a decent league to be apart of... This is the one i put most effort in and the one thats got me scratching my head as we already have determined to draft order based on last seasons final standings. My problem is if I pass on Kelce at the round 2 area... I may aswell just snag somebody in the later rounds because i highly doubt Kelce, Ertz, Kittle or Ebron will be there at the 3/4 turnaround for my 3rd and 4th pick...
  16. Thanks for weighing in on mine mate... appreciate it. as for yours, ive never been in a keeper league but understand its concept and actually really like the idea of it... as for your question, i would definitely look to offer for Woods and Ertz (given you WRs) if he is seeking a RB, i would offer up either Jones or Kerryon, with Henry so he isnt short a TE... personally, i think Aaron Jones is a sell high based off last season. Just an opinion. I think the Packers are a confusing outfit with the RB area. And the recent talk of Lions opting to be a run first offence, along with Kerryons skill and youth... Guice will return big things aswell i feel... hes a talent.
  17. Thanks for replying... so you like the idea of Kelce at 9th overall (round 2, pick 1) based off of the thoughts behind it?
  18. Just thinking out loud here guys, seeking pro’s and con’s opinions for my “method to madness”.... hear me out... im in an 8 team league where every coach has a reasonably solid team... (yes, i would rather a 12, but being in a small town in australia, we are limited to finding people with the same pssion for NFL) I won our leagues 2018 season last year, and therefore, our leagues rule is the reverse the seasons final standings for the following years draft order. (Ie. 1st place gets 8th pick, 2nd place gets 7th pick........... 8th place gets 1st pick. Etc) i know it’s EXTREMELY early to predict anything, but f--- it, its fun...... predicting our draft round 1 next season looks something like this - (im pick 8 ***) ROUND 1 - 1 - Gurley 2 - Saquon 3 - Zeke/Mccaffrey 4 - Zeke/Mccaffrey 5 - Gordon (Chargers fan) 6 - Connor (Steelers fan) 7 - Kamara *** 8 - Bell/Chubb/Mixon/Adams/Nuk Heres the Travis Kelce relevance... at my round 2 pick (pick 2.1, 9th overall), i am strongly considering on a major reach of taking Kelce, and while it sounds stupid to take him ahead of guys like AB, Mixon, Nuk. Etc.... REASONING = • I have always personally believed drafting on the ends (picks 1 or 8) you need to be very BOLD with your selections as it is a long time before your next pick. (In this example, round 3.8 - pick 24 is my next pick) • If i was to reach on Kelce at 2.1, my thoughts are that it will potentially and hopefully cause a panic amongst the league, as we are all very aware how helpful a top teir TE is in an 8 team league, and feel between my round 2 and 3 picks that Ertz, Kittle and possibly even Ebron (if im lucky) may all be reached on and taken.... therefore pushing 1-3 fallers down toward my round 3.1 pick... (best case scenario) • im certain Ertz and Kittle would be reached on if Kelce goes EARLY and taken before my next pick, which pushes 2 guys that “shouldnt” be there at my pick for round 3. • I also go by a theory in drafting that “YOU HAVE TO REACH TO GUARENTEE GETTING WHAT YOU WANT” and Kelce has proven he is worth the reach posting WR1 numbers consecutive seasons, and with Mahomes at the helm now, even more so... • worst case scenario, i do this and i get off to a bad win-loss record to start the season, i have trade value in Kelce who demands “paying overs” on the trade market, and can really be a helpful tool on the trade block if needed... again, worst case scenario... fall back insurance... • the “blindside” factor, that it will potentially change/put off any predraft planning the other 7 coaches have done... None of them will plan for TEs to start going off the board so early in their mock drafting. Etc, giving me an advantage to be able to plan for it, while all their preseason plans go out the window... just thinking out loud and gettind carried away, haha, but would appreciate your opinions on this thought??? cheers guys
  19. Hi Guys, in bit of a pickle. 0.5 PPR 12 team league. which QB should I start this week? Arod v Bears Mayfield v Broncos or stream - Josh Allen v Lions this is a sudden death final game. I also have Bears defence so don't really want Rodgers to go well. WHIR cheers in advance
  20. do we have any indication who Mcvay will favour out of Kelly or Davis as the RB2 option?
  21. why is this even a question? Take and run, and never look back
  22. Thanks... yeh, its 8 team, and my RBs still stand to be - Gurley Zeke White Chubb Howard losing Mixon and Ingram is okay... its Hill i dont want to lose, my WR2 becomes Diggs or Kupp. And even though they are good, i love Hills upside...
  23. I would personally target diggs and OJ. I think they could be your “cheapest” targets and serve a good purpose in your squad.... just depends on what the coach wants in return... PLEASE DO MINE
  24. Unfortunately its Barkley or a Hill combo... unless hes dumb and one of those guys that takes quantity over quality.. PLEASE DO MINE
