This league is a little different for 2 reasons: 1. It's a keeper league, and 2. Instead of a Flex, theres an "OP" position which allows a QB/RB/WR/TE to be started, essentially making it a 2QB league. It's also PPR and 6 points for pass TDs.
I had 9th overall pick (out of 10). Traditionally I go QB in the first round in this league. But since Manning/Brees/Rodgers were gone by my pick, and since there's no clear-cut #4 I opted to "wait" on QB (more on this later). Also, since I kept Charles with my 2nd round pick, I didn't pick again until 29th overall. Dez, Demariyus, and AJ Green went 6, 7, 8, and since I didn't have a 2nd round pick, I opted to reach for Julio Jones. When it came back to me in the 3rd and 4th rounds, I took Jay Cutler and Tony Romo. Really happy that they fell to me there, as they were the exact 2 guys I was targeting pre-draft.
Also really happy with my RB depth as I was able to secure handcuffs for both Charles and Bernard, as well as Gerhart and Miller. Went with James White as the upside/potential keeper steal. Pretty disappointed in my WR depth though. Guys that I was targeting were constantly getting taken before me, and along with managing the draft board and keeping track of my own spreadsheets, it kinda slipped my mind that I needed more WRs
. Still like both Cooks and Hawkins' upside though. Not worried about TE depth as there are plenty available on waivers, and since waivers are auction format, I can buck up if I absolutely need one.
Over the first 4 rounds there were 3 players kept (2 RBs, 1 WR), so there were pretty much 37 actual picks. Out of those 37 picks, 15 of them were QBs. 41% of the players drafted in the first 4 rounds were QBs
. 35% were WRs (13), and just 22% were RBs (8 ). One of the reasons why I love this format. The draft is always different and you have to adapt on the fly.
