    Drafting from the 12 spot

    You never know how things will work out, but I am not feeling that team, as things stand now. I think you did get good value on Ingram in the 6th and managed to cuff him.....which could very well be your saving grace. I am assuming that somebody sniped Jaylen Samuels before you could cuff him? DeSean Jackson was good value, and having CJ Anderson around was a good idea. Also, what made you pull the trigger on Winston in the 5th? Good luck.

    Travis Kelce

    Kelce is worth a reach imho. You end up with not only what should be the far-and-away best TE in the league, but a WR1 in your TE slot each week. That's a underrated advantage.

    Big draft day decision...NEED HELP

    If it's smoked to perfection, then it really don't matter.....it's all good. I would recommend focusing on starting a new tradition. To determine draft position, draw names out of a bowl containing doggie biscuits with each owners name on it. Last season's last place finisher must then eat his doggie biscuit in front of everyone.

    Drafting from the 12 spot

    I would recommend Mahomie and Kelce at the turn. You have secured the best at those 2 positions from the 12 hole.....then just hammer away at RB's and WR's for the next 10 rounds. On the second turn, I would get 2 of these RB's: Carson, Henry, Montgomery, Ingram or Jacobs. If Miles Sanders is still available at your 5th pick, snipe him. Lots of high upside with good value at WR after that.....like ARob, C. Samuels, Ashlon, Kirk, R. Anderson, etc. I'd even grab DeSean Jackson and/or D. Parker late. They have both had a stellar camp. Also be sure to cuff Penny, and grab proven RB1's waiting in the wings, like Jaylen Samuels and CJ Anderson.

    Doug Orth's Big Boards - Top 150

    If true, this is a very noteworthy statement. Anyone else on board with this line of thinking?

    Carson fell to 4.10? Orth should be arrested.....that's highway robbery. His 3 Rb's are Kamara, Gurley, and Carson. His only mistake was failing to cuff Penny....and that's significant.

    Andrew Luck's injury

    On the other hand (or foot), they hold him out and keep it shrouded in mystery all of preseason and it turns out to be nothing...making him the steal of the draft.

    2019 FF Draft Targets

    Another tough one. Honestly, I think that it could take a bit to shake out....so I am staying clear unless Sanders falls on draft day. However, in a 14-teamer I can see where one would desire to find some value in that backfield, especially since that offense should be fairly prolific.. That being said, I believe that Sanders is the back to own for this season, although one may have to exhibit some patience. I just have never been overly impressed with Howard. I'm always looking for upside, and I just don't see it with Howard's resume. Sanders, on the other hand, is a more dynamic, talented, and fresh RB IMHO. Despite having the size (215) to carry the load (even at the goal line, if necessary), he has good hands and exceptional speed. His 4.5 flat 40 at the combine was among the best this year. Last year, Barkley ran a 4.40 flat, but interestingly, Sanders first 10 yards were faster than Barkley.....so he has a heck of a burst. Basically, I believe the cream will rise to the top sooner or later. One caveat: If Sanders cannot protect Wentz, then my entire analysis is out the window......because Howard does excel at that, and they must keep Wentz upright. Here is a good article I read on that aspect. https://insidetheiggles.com/2019/08/15/one-factor-will-prevent-miles-sanders-leading-eagles-backfield/

    2019 FF Draft Targets

    Thanks for saying that.....stand-up thing to do. Hats off to you, and all is well. As far as Gurley-man is concerned, I am less concerned than most about his issue, and love his current draft value because of the paranoia. For those who seem drastically concerned about Gurley’s arthritis in his knee.....he's had arthritis in his knee for a long time. Once you’re opened up in surgery for a torn ACL, like he did in 2014, arthritis is likely gonna be present. Sure, they may dial back his workload a bit, but consider this: Even if you took away 25 percent of his fantasy points over the last two years, he’d still be the RB3 over that time behind only Kamara and McCaffery. As far as Gurley's cuff, I must be honest with you and say that I just don't know, which is frustrating . Frankly, I am surprised that they shipped CJ Anderson after he stepped in so nicely down the stretch. Henderson? Brown? Maybe even Kelly....or does Kelly get cut? Just not sure. One thing I do know....Henderson was not impressive in his first showing this preseason with 6/13/0 and 1/-5/0 .

    2019 FF Draft Targets

    Sorry, should have been clearer. C. Samuel with the Panthers is the one I feel is going to be electric and still a terrific draft value. Based almost entirely on Reid's propensity over the years to use a "workhorse" RB, combined with his familiarity with and repeated votes of confidence for Williams as "The Man", I feel Hyde's impact will be minimal barring an injury to Williams. It is his job to lose (and that is always possible....but he showed last season that he can be quite productive in that offense). Furthermore, although possessing some talent, Hyde has never really shown that he can truly be "The Man"....particularly last season on two different teams. Personally, I would be more concerned about Darwin Thompson. In fact, he is the cuff I am drafting for Williams.

    2019 FF Draft Targets

    You forget Weeps, that not everyone is a fantasy genius like yourself, who knows every skill player in the NFL and hangs out all year posting in fantasy football forums. Some stay pretty darn busy with jobs and families, and come around in hopes of gleaning some information that might be helpful where value drafting is concerned. I know that the Lord loves a good old-fashioned passive-aggressive thread antagonist and all, but think you might could give it a break this year? Hey, I'm just asking. Good question. Talked about it yesterday in this thread: Deo Vindice!

    2019 FF Draft Targets

    Almost forgot to mention my man Kumerow. Camp reports have been steady and positive all off-season, and he appears to be a lock to make the roster. Most importantly, Rogers really likes him. Geronimo and MVS are the popular picks right now, but don't forget about ole' Jake. He can be had for free (unless he blows up in a preseason game again this year).

    Who are the sleepers this year?

    Although a lot of talent there, I am gonna have to take a hard pass on the SF skill players this year (except maybe Gould or Jimmy G late). There are just too many mouths to feed. Pettis, Samuel, Goodwin, Hurd, and Kittle...with the latter being so overpriced it's scary. They also have 3 talented RB's in McKinnon, Breida, and Coleman. Should be a fun team to watch, but a potential nightmare from a FF perspective. Also agree that C. Samuel is the correct Samuel to target.

    Mahomes in the 3rd round?

    I guess what surprises me the most is that, with your leagues scoring rules, you expect Mahomie to be there at 3.2. I would consider that highway robbery. Do you also get 1 point/10 yards passing? My leagues are similar and even if I didn't draft him, he wouldn't get out of the 1st/early second rounds in any of them. If you are correct on your assumption of his availability in the 3rd, you are in an enviable position. Good luck.

    Mahomes in the 3rd round?

    Glad to see that you are still a drone making blanket statements regardless of league scoring rules, and ignoring the time-tested strategy of BPA. With an ever-changing and evolving society, it's truly refreshing to see that some things never change. Barring injury, I predict that you will eat your words on Mahomie's upcoming season. Thank you. Deo Vindice!
