With the start of training camp, sadly the injuries are starting to pile up

I got 3rd overall in my league of record.

We draft August 17th

Thinking Saquon or Kamara. Pretty sure McCaffery and Zeke are going 1 and 2.

Just activated the leagues I'm commissioner in today too. It's Fantasy Season, baby! Time to dial things up and get some mock drafts in soon.

Damn it feels good to have the top three players all on my Dynasty team already :D (Barkley, Zeke, McCaffery). It's kind of annoying deciding between Cousins and Newton week to week though but I'm hoping to scoop up Murray. I pick 12th since I won last year so thinking I can grab Murray and a WR or Murray and a Defense depending on what's available. Dynasty drafts are so bizarre after the first one.

Oh, a legit question I wouldn't mind feedback on. I'm going back and forth between keeping Engram or OJ Howard. Right now I'm thinking Engram because the Giants WR corps have been decimated so who else will they throw to? Although he'll likely see heavier coverage as a result but then again, won't defenses just be stacking the box? ;p Also, Arians makes me paranoid concerning OJ. He only uses TEs to block... That said, OJ is a better option than what he had in Zona so maybe OJ will get some love as the #2 option after Evans? What say you guys? I always set my drafts after the third pre-season games so I have a month to deliberate between the two but feel confident about my other keeper selections.

Bet that changes with the recent RIP of what was already the ghost town WR corps.
You think that will bring his value down? The Giants offense might be trash, but the volume Saquon is going to get is really hard to pass up tbh.

I have Engram ahead of Howard on my rankings.

For sure, it's just there's nothing else a defense has to defend now except him and Engram. Stack the box every play.

Reminds me when I kept Gurley that year Fisher was coaching and he was awful.

Ended up flipping him for Melvin Gordon that season. Gurley then proceeded to ruin me in the fantasy championship the following year...

Todd Gurley has fucked me over a couple of times as well. I drafted him his 2nd year, and he fucking stunk up the place.

I had a chance to draft him the following season but didn't since I was scared he'd lay another goose egg but nope, we all know how that went.

It's time for some revenge. Derrick Henry killed me last year until I traded him only to see him go off in the playoffs. At least Trubisky gave me more than expected.

Baker is going to be overdrafted like mad this year. I wouldn't want to pay the price its going to require to draft him.

Is it just me or is it smarter this year to grab more RBs than WRs because the talent pool of WR is deep comparative to RB.

The main thing is stay fluid during your draft, zig when they zag. Also don’t draft your defense till the last round or at all if you can wait.

Draft bpa. Running back talent drops off night time after rounds 4 - 5
