Week 14...go win the ship

If you’ve stayed with me all season. Thank you. This has been a rough season for many reasons. I strongly feel it has been the most bizarre fantasy season I have ever been a part of. As of writing this here are your top 5 in each category and ESPN Average drafted by position in PPR


Russell Wilson, 5th QB taken

Carson Wentz, 16th QB taken

Alex Smith, 9th QB taken

Tom Brady, 2nd QB taken

Cam Newton, 8th QB taken


Todd Gurley, 11th RB taken

Le'veon Bell, 2nd RB taken

Alvin Kamara , 56th RB taken

Mark Ingram, 24th RB taken

Kareem Hunt, 8th(has to be skewed to include leagues drafted after week 1)


Antonio Brown, 1st WR taken

DeAndre Hopkins, 14th WR taken

Keenan Allen, 20th WR taken

Larry Fitzgerald, 19th WR taken

Tyreek Hill, 18th WR taken

I feel these numbers contradict what I wrote, but I also firmly believe they include drafts that took place after the season starts. I just can’t believe Kareem Hunt was the 8th RB taken overall without his week 1 game included.

The numbers suggest that the top drafted players don’t always win you games, it’s typically round 4-8 who win games. Those top players win you championships. It’s very conceivable that someone has Russell Wilson, Antonio Brown, Alvin kamara, kareem hunt, Keenan Allen and Larry Fitzgerald.

If you’re in the playoffs, keep on reading. If you’re not, keep on reading. Thanks for staying with us all season.

Stream the Packers DST, unless you think this is the game that ruins the Browns 0-16 parade hopes.
