    That report earlier in the NFL thread said LeFleur and Rodgers were already butting heads. The only guy I could really see benefiting from the new HC is Aaron Williams
    that guy was clearly better than the other backs on the roster and would get 6 carries a game. No Cobb makes the other 2 WRs more desirable, but I'm torn on if I could pull the trigger on one of them.

    What TE's are you guys big on this year?

    I have the 12th pick in my big league this year. I've mostly been ending up with Mixon,Connor & LBell at that position. I'm not a huge fan of that and I'm considering going WR/WR with my first two picks (Which I do not like).

    I think most experts are picking Kelce in the early second round or even late first, but at this point I feel like the public will draft him later. As well as the other two top tier TEs (Ertz/Kittle). If Kelce would fall to me in the third (like a turn pick) I’d do it. Ertz/Kittle at end of the third-into the fourth idk. In public leagues I could see Howard, Engram, Henry go for some real value. Otherwise Vance McDonald in 10+, Ebron, Cook (people could also reach for them on a run). I don’t think it’d be egregious to throw a dart at Jimmy Graham late. Always good to remember, 10 team leagues will have more value on the TE position because of the relative parity at other positions, and having a standout there could be a huge advantage.

    Not sure what your scoring is, but it would be nice to get like Julio/Odell/Thomas and a back in that situation. I also have a tough time going WR/WR but if that’s where the value is then I think you should do it. I like a lot of the RB’s going in the third round - Fournette, A Jones, Freeman, Henry. That is, if you’re going WR/WR.

    Assuming PPR and 3 WRs, I wouldn't be afraid to go WR/WR. It can be a nice contrarian play to get better value in the back half. I've gone either WR/WR/WR/RB or WR/WR/RB/WR each of the last three years. Partially because I keep getting stuck drafting back-half but mostly because I have more fun watching a fleet of top receivers, and did really well with all of those teams. I haven't started doing my homework for this year yet to be able to recommend individual players, but just wanted to throw that out there for encouragement.

    Kittle worth keeping?

    I’m keeping Saquon obviously but now I’m thinking about keeping Kittle and/or Rodgers. It’s a standard league.

    Newest update to the spreadsheet: consistency ratings are done, the only projections that won't self update are espn and fantasy guru so in theory you could just download this one and you'll be good to go. The only real work left to do to the sheet is add in bye week alternates for qbs and update fantasy guru/espn projections which I will probably do in mid august.
    To update the projections you have to allow external data connections then go to the data tab and press refresh all. The rest of the instructions are in the sheet.

    He is a top 3 player at a position where there are 3 reliable guys and then a big drop off. I would absolutely keep him.

    I can keep 4:
    Mahomes
    Mike Evans
    AJ Green
    George Kittle
    Nick Chubb
    Kerryon Johnson
    Derrius Guice

    I'm thinking Mahomes, Evans, Kittle, and either Guice or Chubb. I also have the 1st pick, so there's some flexibility. I don't think anyone had Damien Williams rostered at the end of the year.

    All I know is I picked him up late and he helped me win my league

    Especially in PPR’s he will be big as they pass a lot to the RB’s and he appeared to be a very reliable receiver

    Chubb>>>>>>>>>>Guice

    Hunt isn’t coming back until week 9 (I believe?) and who knows how much of the touches he’ll get. Chubb should be solid to great all the way up to that point, those early points getting you your best chance of a playoff birth.

    Guice is coming off a major injury, hasn’t played football in a year plus, on the Redskins, and still has AP with some role around him. Plus he just injured his hammy. I’m out on that noise.

    NE players are typically tough, but I like Michel a lot. Especially with Gronk out of the picture, Brady needs another outlet.

    Of course he could just as easily be a 120 yd 3 td guy 1 week and 45 yds on 10 carries the next.

    Michel really turned it on in the playoffs so that gave me hope

    But like you said I hate taking NE RB’s and somehow someway I always end up with one

    Yeah this is where I'm at. Both Reid and the OC just gave him big endorsements, I have no fear in Hyde taking the job, and he was effective at the end of the year in the Chiefs offense - which has also made Charcandrick West look good.

    Not that anyone cares, but the reason i'm asking is I might trade for him in my keeper league. It's a PPR and FA additions are kept at 12th round value (unless 2 being kept and the 2nd goes to 8th round) and limited to 2 years in a row keeping someone. Right now I'm:

    James Conner - 12th
    Tyler Boyd - 8th (just don't love this)

    guy that has Williams isn't keeping him, and I have an extra 3rd and 6th round pick so thinking of trading my 6th for Williams (who i could keep for 2 years). I have 1st overall pick which at worst is going to be Gordon/DJ (potentially Shaquon/Elliott depending upon who is kept). So i'd be starting with:

    James Conner
    David Johnson
    Damien Williams

    Feel like it's worth it.

    Yeah I guess I was debating if he was worth the 6th and 8th (where I keep him) vs just Boyd in the 8th but I've decided it's kind of a no brainer

    I actually like Njoku even though most fantasy writers seem not to because of what his target share is going to be. I think he could get to 10+ TDs now that teams have to defend both Beckham and Landry

    I’ve been doing some mocks for my main league (10 team standard scoring) and have found taking 3 running backs in the first three rounds has yielded some fairly impressive squads. 10 team league rosters are all pretty stacked by nature of the limited number of teams, but man do I like this strategy. It’s sort of an unspoken rule that you don’t go into a draft planning to take X number of positions by round, however, I’ll occasionally get a WR like Aj Green or Allen drop to me in the 4th for my WR1. Plus, you have Edelman, Cooks, and Woods that can go in the fourth/fifth. Lots of upside WR later in the draft (Moore, Pettis, Packers WRs, etc). Something I’ll be watching.

    I'm doing a 10 team non-PPR league that is otherwise standard outside of a few bonuses that arent super important (ie, bonus points for over 200 rushing yards) for reasons. I have the the 7th pick.

    I love fantasy sports of pretty much any type, but I've been mock-drafting this format a little bit by myself and online, and every team ends up so stacked and there are so many good free agents that I honestly wonder how non-casual players enjoy it at all

    I’ve been begging our commissioner to go to 1/2 ppr to try and take some of the running back importance out of it. Also, getting rid of kickers. I still love you Greg.

    Keeper debate for a 0.5 ppr league, Juju for a 3rd rounder or Devonta Freeman for a 5th. Other option would be for Deshaun Watson for a 6th or Mark Ingram for a 7th.

    Leaning to go with Juju.
