Debating who to take at 1.1 this year

Postby AlbertaPrime » Tue May 14, 2019 7:43 am

We have our rookie draft coming up in a few weeks and wow am I going back and forth on who to take at 1.1. My squad is as follows:

QB: Dak Prescott
RB1: Melvin Gordon
RB2: Derrius Guice
WR1: Allen Robinson
WR2: Keenan Allen
WR3: Corey Davis
TE: Evan Engram

WR: Josh Doctson
WR: Quincy Enunwa
WR: John Ross
WR: Adam Humpries
WR: Rashard Higgins
RB: Ito Smith
RB: Chase Edmonds
RB: Gus Edwards
RB: Justin Jackson
RB: Theo Riddick
QB: Marcus Mariota
QB: Same Rosen

I've got one of those squads with a lot of 'myth' type players (Mariota, Ross, Davis and Doctson). As you can tell I have been burned by hyped up rookie WR's in the past. My gut is telling me to go RB at 1.1 and snag either Jacobs or Sanders. In truth, I like the idea of a Melvin, Guice, Jacobs/Sanders combination in the years to come. Would I be crazy not even to consider Harry at the 1.1?
14 Team/Dynasty League/Non PPR. 1QB, 2RB, 3WR, 1TE, 1D, 1K
QB: Dak Prescott, Marcus Mariota
RB: Saquon Barkley, Josh Jacobs, Justin Jackson, Alex Mattison, Damien Harris, Ito Smith, Chase Edmonds, Bryce Love
WR: Keenan Allen, Allen Robinson, Christian Kirk, Rashard Higgins, Andy Isabella, KeeSean Johnson, Geronimo Allison
TE: Evan Engram
D: Stream

I think your biggest need is RB and I think Jacobs is the #1 overall. Pretty easy decision for me

Draft jacobs and sell Gordon if you can get good value for him. Not competing yet with this roster.

Take Jacobs (your team needs another RB) or see if you can move back to the 1.03 and pick up extra picks

I agree with trading back. If you could land something like 1.03/2.03 for 1.01, I think that’s solid value in this class. If that’s not an option, gun to my head, I’m taking Sanders.

Edit: Just realized this is a standard scoring league. In that case, I wouldn’t trade back any later than 1.02, but would probably accept less to do so. Sanders would still be my top choice, but if I could get any 2019 or 2020 2nd to move down a spot, I’d be fine with Jacobs.

Draft the best talent in the best situation.
Jacobs has the consensus highest value now and likely will grow when the job is clearly his in game 1 of this season.
No other RB/WR can guarantee that right now.

Start 1QB 2RB 3WR 1Flex 1TE 1K 21 Man Active Roster / 2 TAXI SQUAD SPOT

WR - Juju, Evans, Golladay, Edelman, AJ Green, A. Tate, Allison, D. Robinson,
TE - Kelce, Goedert


TEAM TWO
12 Team PPR League / 5pt passing TDs / 28 man rosters
Start 1QB 2RB 3WR 1Flex 1TE 1Def
QB- A. Rodgers, J. Winston, Dalton

I take Jacobs or Harry, whichever you like more. All you really need here is a flex to play around with. I slightly prefer RB for your team from a construct point of view.
