If you're really worried about it, why not go Brown? He's about as consistent as they come at the position. Is it PPR?

Yeah, Zeke is a great fantasy pick, especially behind that offensive line, but if you're that concerned I don't get the trepidation in picking AB.

No PPR. My concern is how shallow RB is after the first handful are drafted.

With so many tandem backfields, my strategy of drafting 3WRs (or 2 and Gronk) then filling out the rest of the roster has worked very well in recent years. Rather have 3 auto start WRs and roll the dice on some RBs who are going to get touches. Screw trying to find a 3rd WR who might put up a goose egg.

I End up filling my bench with all RBs and one backup WR. By week 5,6, you pretty much have at least one of those late round RBs getting starting carries, in addition to your starters you drafted in round 4,5, or 6.

I'd go Brown #3 over Zeke.  But I like to limit risk early on.  Brown's floor is just so damn high.  I don't expect Zeke to be suspended more than a max of 6 games, but missing 6 weeks would really hurt his overall value.  You can weather that storm and still be well set for the playoffs, but Brown is also a stud capable of enormous performance and doesn't have any risk of not being allowed to play.

 

I'd rank Zeke 4th, I would take him over Beckham or Evans or any of the other top options.  But not Johnson, Bell, or Brown.

Is the NFL a joke or are they a fucking JOKE???

 

This Elliott suspension saga is a big ole black eye on THE LEAGUE.

 

They can go pound sand.


I never had friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?

Looks like a suspension is definite. Could be up to six games.

I'm taking AB

6 games is joke.

 

I can see 2, even though that is BS.

 

If it's more than 2 I am not keeping ZE at $64.

Also, I guarantee the NFL dumps this suspension news around 4-5 p.m. when people are leaving work and before sports shows can run with it. Typical bury the lede mentality from the NFL.

Yeha, if it's indeed six, you have to take Antonio.

 

I'm worried about my pick at 7 and what I'd do there if Zeke is still available. I hate taking suspended players.

If he is suspended for 1/2 of the fantasy regular season you can't consider him until round 4 IMO.

Yeah, I'd still likely take my chance with one of the WRs (Julio, ODB, Green) or settle for McCoy

Jesus.

 

Well, I am sure he'll appeal, and it will probably be reduced to 4 games, but I can't keep him for $64 with this shit hanging over his head.

Gurley is very frustrating.......  They have had no qb since his draft but after his first year has not done shite.


<p>I am pretty sure Shack is thinking of PBR.

Yea I didn't want to take Gurley but with where I was picking by the time I got another chance to take an RB most would have been gone.

Lacy could make or break. I mean you have Rawls behind him, but I feel like Lacy could break out.
