    Instant Fantasy Analysis - RB James Cook, Bills

    While almost all of his carries came in garbage time, the Bills did not burn a second-round pick on him to be a mop-up back. It is helpful to look at the NFL season in quarters and I would expect defenses to overcompensate in hopes they can slow down Diggs and allow more short throws to guys like McKenzie and Cook. Yes, Singletary is still the main guy on early downs and I don't expect that to change, but what does that actually mean on a team that has no desire to establish the run?

    I really like Jordan. Hooper and Everett are insurance in case I am wrong about Jordan.

    I have since put Jameson Williams and Gus on IR and picked up Hooper and Everett. I think Jordan will be the real deal at TE, but one of the other two should give me a decent floor.

    Thanks! I find the ESPN auctions tend to bring out the crazies when it comes to pricing the high-end guys. You can't drop $65-70 on one player and believe you will come away with enough $1-2 players to compete against a team with a bunch of $10-15 starters complementing a pair of $30-40 foundation pieces.

    Thanks. I've been doing auctions for 13 years. I'm not saying they are useless; flexibility is vital. I think I say that in so many words. You definitely need to have a plan, I don't think I say otherwise. What I don't think is helpful is saying I'm going to spend 45% of my budget (or $90 of my $200 cap) at RB before the draft only to quickly realize that your league is willing to go crazy at the position. Ninety dollars should be more than enough to have a competitive RB room, but it may not be if every other manager is willing to spend more. There aren't 24 RBs worthy of starting consideration every week. I think it is more important to have "my guys" (especially at the lower and middle levels) and get a sense of what players in certain tiers are going for.

    https://fantasy.espn.com/football/league/draftrecap?leagueId=1101700738 Ignore the commish team (obviously). I am Team Orth ... shocking, I know. Quick initial thoughts: I want McCaffrey in a big way this year (again), but I can't (and do not think I ever will be able to) justify spending more than $60 on one player with a $200 cap. The prices seem to be influenced greatly by the default prizes on ESPN, so don't hesitate to shop at the low-end RB1/WR1 store if it happens. Metcalf for $12 and Robinson for $17 are ridiculous values IMO.

    I guess it depends on if you believe in "injury-proneness." I personally think the Giants will run him less often than they did during his healthy years and throw him the ball about as often as they did during his rookie season.
