SO - after exactly one month, the 53-round startup draft for this 32-team DOUBLE-copy league is winding to a close (I made my last pick yesterday - like 30 picks to go now).
Here’s my roster (will be able to stash some more fliers here in a couple days, once FA opens up for us post-draft):
, Haskins, Rosen (start 1)
RB: Josh Jacobs, Damien Harris
, A. Mattison, Alex Collins (start 1-4)
WR: Keenan Allen, Corey Davis, Marquise Brown, Mecole Hardman, DK Metcalf
, Josh Reynolds, Marcell Ateman (start 3-6)
TE: Evan Engram, OJ Howard, Gerald Everett
, Drew Sample, Dalton Schultz (start 1-3)
AS FOR DRAFT CAPITAL
- Here’s where I really focused.
In the 2020 class: I now have 7 Firsts, 10 seconds, 5 thirds, 7 fourths, & 5 fifths.
In the 2021 class: 2 Firsts, 5 seconds, 3 thirds, 2 fourths, & 2 fifths.
Handful of 6ths & 7ths in both 20 & 21 rookie classes.
And keep in mind, in a league that starts 11 IDP with complex & balanced defensive scoring, tons of offensive players fall. In a similar league to this, guys like Dante Pettis & Cooper Kupp go late 3rd or even mid 4th. Terry McLaurin went in the 6th in a similar league. Noah Fant fell to the mid 2nd in 2 leagues with a similar format. Even in the 7th round, stash guys like Dawson Knox/Drew Sample/Bruce Anderson/3rd tier IDP rookies can readily be found.
Ok, so an update if anyone cares:
My offensive roster can be seen as team B in my sig. Defense hasn't changed, a ton, except I added a couple solid young guys at LB and S, and added Ngakoue on the D-line. Traded away Davenport and Takk, but otherwise haven't dealt my core IDP guys.
I now have 8 Firsts, 9 Seconds, 7 Thirds in 2020.
Also have 5 Firsts , 7 Seconds, 3 Thirds in 2021.
I feel pretty confident that I can be a strong competitor next year, with a handful of unexciting yet young QBs, Mixon at RB, KA/Evans/Hollywood/Metcalf/Landry at WR, and some upside dart throws at TE.
I plan on going hard after RB in the draft this coming year, and probably trading quite a few picks away for vets at WR and even IDP.
Jacobs was a pretty easy sell a couple weeks ago, was able to basically get Evans for him. Got Derek Carr cheap, which I like given the depth of our league. I was able to turn Evan Engram into Mixon plus 1sts in 20 and 21, which made me very happy. Corey Davis turned into Njoku.
EDIT: Finally made a good deal to sell Keenan Allen. Paired him with a 2nd to grab Hopkins.

DARNOLD, Carr, Rosen, Eli, Tyrod
SAQUON/MIXON, Hines, Gallman, L Miller, J Williams
NUK/EVANS/OBJ/K ALLEN/HOLLYWOOD, Coutee, Latimer
KITTLE/NJOKU, Ian Thomas, James O
Danielle Hunter and then a bunch of stashes for IDP
