Again, the issue with this thinking is that this is not a deep skill position draft. And considering that the main goal of a rookie draft is to draft the best prospects, it's egregious to consider a first round WR as a 2nd round fantasy pick.JFever wrote: ↑Fri Apr 26, 2019 10:12 amPeople see what they want to see at times and an NFL (good pick) isn't always a Fantasy good pick. People are making connections to fit their opinion. Things aren't so just because you'd like them to be so. This landing spot is atrocious and one of the worst that could have happened. Projecting L.Miller to throw 500 times is a big big reach and it screams "wishful thinking" and - it simultaneously goes against the offensive philosophy currently in place.djeternal2 wrote: ↑Fri Apr 26, 2019 7:03 amBe careful putting too much stock in the first WR taken in the NFL draft.Cameron Giles wrote: ↑Fri Apr 26, 2019 6:40 am
I still don't get how the first WR taken in the NFL Draft is a 2nd round rookie pick in fantasy. There just isn't any way that there are 12 better prospects than him in a class that isn't good to begin with.
We'll see what happens today, but at some point the fantasy community has to catch up to the WR that generated the most first round buzz in this class.
2012 - Justin Blackmon
2013 - Tavon Austin
2014 - Sammy Watkins
2015 - Amari Cooper
2016 - Corey Coleman
2017 - Corey Davis
2018 - DJ Moore
Not exactly a list of world beaters. So far best of the list is Amari and it drops off pretty heavily after that in terms of fantasy stats which is what we are talking about here.
Brown was 2.04 predraft and NFL evaluators basically told you that you were wrong. So, why would you still continue to believe you're right? He was the first WR off the board despite not going through combine testing. He wasn't even Top 5 predraft on DLF
I'm not saying he should unanimously be 1.01 or something, but he's at least a mid 1st in a standard 12 team PPR. The NFL just did the homework for you.
