2019 Rotoworld Mock Real League

Recommended Posts

With the 106th Pick in the 2019 Rotoworld Mock Real League, Zidane Valor selects:

Sterling Shepard, WR, New York Giants
Zidane's 2019 Ranking:
26th WR, 63rd Overall

2018 Statistics
66 receptions, 872 receiving yards (13.2 YPR), 4 TD
144.2 fantasy points

2019 Projection
80 receptions, 1000 receiving yards (12.5 YPR), 4 TD
164 fantasy points

 

In theory, someone has to be the #1 WR for the Giants.  Might as well be Sterling, who already averages 63 receptions per season.

I predict a small bump in receptions even if not in touchdowns.  I see a lot of 5-for-63 games for Sterling this season.

@CyberneticGhostOfXMasPast is on the clock.

I had him as one of 6-7 WR that would have their 1st 1,000 yard season.

I'm surprised California is still a part of America, to be honest.

Josh Gordon

 

There appears to be some sort of mistake.
Image result for see what had happened was gif fresh prince

I sent my picks to Image result for predator
but he seemed to have mistakenly submitted my player, for his pick.  Silly accident really.
So if you guys could just move ole Joshy-Poo over to my team
 Image result for that would be great gif

My quick run down...

1.14 Melvin Gordon
2.1   Dalvin Cook

Melvin falling to 14th was too much value to pass up despite the contract narrative... my bet is they work it out with Rivers' window closing.
MG was absolutely beasting last year until he sprained his knee...

Dalvin Cook: Conner and Chubb were the other RB considerations here. Like them both a lot.. tough choice all the way. Opted for Dalvin...
I like his situation in the 3 down workhorse role and, while his anticipated production is still speculative, I like his tape more than Conner's.
Not knocking Conner, but taking AB off the field somewhat changes the Pittsburgh dynamic... defenses will lean into the trenches more his season.
I think the Minnesota offense's arrow is pointing up and Pittsburgh is, at best, sideways.

3.14 Kenny Golladay
4.1   Julian Edelman

Was fully targeting 2 WRs in this spot unless Josh Jacobs fell. RObert Woods was the only other WR considered here. I got a lot of Robert Woods, so swapped him out for Edleman.
While the offense in Detroit is being touted as run-centric, they have only KJ & CJ + their defense is average to ok... they are going to have to pass in a division with the Packers, Vikings and even the Bears.  Golladay has WR1 chops, but has to level up again this season to get there.  At the time of the pick, I thought he has the highest WR floor and WR upside left.

Edelman is a guy I've never owned and he's a thousand years old. Having said that, he's probably Brady's #1 target or, at worst, a 1B. I think he will notch 100+ receptions and be a consistent producer week in and week out... never going to be over the top, but never going to drop a donut on you either.

5.14 Tyler Boyd
6.1   Royce Freeman

Boyd broke out last season and looked really solid doing it... guy works hard, learns, and keeps working hard. He's got AJ on the other side of the field to take the CB1 away.
Cincinnati's defense is almost a dumpster fire, so this team will be chucking the ball. Boyd is clearly the #2 option behind Green and there's plenty of meat on the fantasy stick for the Cincy offense... The Oline sucks and that is a potential problem. Also, there's whispers of the corpse of John Ross rising, but I'll believe it when I see it. 

Freeman... just love him as a player and he wasn't getting back to me. Admittedly wanted Guice, Williams, or Howard here, but they all went right before my picks. Well done, gents.
They drafted Freeman to be the guy and Lindsay stole the show last year. Lindsay comes in a little banged up, but will still retain the starting gig early, but I expect Denver to run a lot this season with Flacco at the helm.  Fangio is a defensive-minded coach and  Munchak is the best in the business at coaching up the OLine. Denver's rushing game will be a two-headed monster and I expect Freeman to get the stripe this season.


7.14 Austin Ekeler
8.1   Courtland Sutton

I'll be the first to raise my hand and say I had no problem seeing Ekeler getting thrown back and then falling to me 9 picks later. There's still some talented RB flyers on the board, but Ekeler is as good a handcuff as there is in the league and, with MG's contract issue, buying insurance at pick 98 made sense... It's not sexy, but it works.  

I feel good about getting Sutton as my WR4 after starting the draft RB/RB... If I didn't already have Golladay, I might have grabbed Marvin Jones here, but I didn't want to double up on Lions. Sutton had a real nice rookie season (42-704-4). With Sanders on the mend, I expect Sutton's target share to go up this season. The Broncos are going to run more this season, but Sutton has a shot to be Flacco's first option. I was debating Westbrook and Shepard here, but opted for size over speed.

Overall, happy with the start... hope to finish strong.

Both of these were on the list I gave to Miami. That must have felt like Christmas, getting both thrown in your lap.

Good list, thanks you and everyone for explaining your thinking!

You're gonna be dealing king size Reese's pieces and regular Snickers bars to a guy who hardly ever looks at chocolate. Good luck.

Really, you should send him to me.  He would fit my whole "Risk on" draft mentality here.
