I hear that I'm a delight

Oh you play fantasy football too?  You probably wouldn’t be reading this if you didn’t…  There are some strategies floating around out there. Last year the big one was NO RB’s…. Meaning wait wait wait for an RB because they’re basically interchangeable. This year it’s NO WR’s because they’re interchangeable and you can find people in the 10th that will put up similar numbers to people in the 1st. Where was JuJu drafted last year? Or Adam Theilan? Compared to AJ Green or Amari Cooper?

Where will AB be drafted compared to Courtland Sutton? Will Zeke and Melvin Gordon's hold outs hurt them? Will they play? No one really knows. I’m on the train that preseason isn’t needed for these guys and if they suit up week 1 they’re good...if not you drafted a guy who won’t play. These rankings will assume they play week 1. That will be updated in future rankings.

I am pro wait for a QB not named Mahomes, Luck or Rodgers. Draft best available and not WR or RB first. I like to try and draft a QB and WR from the same team. I also don’t like to draft Oakland Raiders. That;s a personal preference. Rooting for a Raider is like enjoying having wet socks… NO...just NO!
