    Here we go.

    1st Round – Barkley, Kamara, CMC, Zeke, Hopkins, Adams, Gordon, DavidJohnson, Bell, Thomas, Conner and Julio Jones.

    Thoughts – No surprise that Barkley is the #1 pick.

    The next 3 backs I’ve seen go in lots of different orders.

    Gotta admit I am surprised that the worry with Gurley is this extreme. Arthritis and everybody is skeered?

    2nd Round – Holy moly. Bell and Gurley combo. Michael Thomas and Antonio Brown combo. My how things change in just one off-season.

    2.1 – ODB, JuJu on that beat, AB, Gurley, Cook, Kelce, Chubb, Evans, Hilton, Thielen, Mixon and Kittle. Kittle is a 2nd rounder. Wow. He was beastly. 88-1377 and 5 TDs. 15.6 yards per catch. Bam! Did you realize he had that many yards with scrub QBs? Oh my…

    Through 2 – Aaah, the FFWC format. Zero QBs, 2 TEs, 12 RBs and 10 WRs. Balance is good through 2. Now where’s the WR run.

    Round 3 – Ertz, Cooper, Allen, Henry, Diggs, Kupp (my man!), Fournette, Damien Williams, AJ Green, Lindsay, AaronJones, MACK TRUCK.

    Somebody tell team 1 we don’t get 1.5 ppr, but hey, it is bestball and you can start 3, so go for it! Ertz stats speak for themselves. Incredible really – 116, 1163 and 8.

    Team breakdowns so far –

    • RB/RB/RB – 1
    • RB/RB/WR – 2
    • RB/WR/WR – 1
    • RB/WR/RB – 2
    • WR/WR/WR – 1
    • WR/WR/RB – 2
    • WR/RB/WR – 1
    • RB/TE/TE – 1
    • RB/TE/RB – 1

    Round 4 – The return of Devonta Freeman. No coleman and he slips to 4.1? Alrighty then. 4.2 Michel, Ingram, ARob, Golladay, Mahomes, Edelman, Cooks, Kerryon, Woods, Watkins, Guice.

    If Tyreek is out, it will be interesting to see what Mahomes can do with Watkins serving as the 1A to Kelce. I know they have Benjamin and the rookie Mecole Hardman, but Watkins was starting to find a groove late. Lots of value in this round with Cooks, Woods, Edelman, Golladay etc. Really solid round, not many reaches that I see there.

    Round 5 – Okay, this is the round where teams put the pedal to the metal or they start to wear the rubber off the tires.

    5.1 Ridley, Lockett, Drake, Moore, Luck, Robby, Alshon, Godwin, Landry, Mike Williams, Carson, Cohen

    Lockett in the 5th, I just can’t do it. Nope, not me. 57-965 and 10. Great season, but I want volume, not TD dependency in round 5.

    You know how I feel about DJ Moore dynasty, but I’m not sure about what’s going on with that Cam Newton shoulder yet.

    Drake? Kenyan Drake? Talk about a flash in the pan. Is he still a thing?

    While I like Luck, in bestball, I’d rather team up with a couple of QBs to try and beat him later and take me a solid 5th rounder here.

    Robby, Alshon, Landry all solid. The backs I’m not too sure about. Look like time shares to me.

    Round 6 – Boyd, Jacobs (rook), henry, Engram, Coutee, Davis, Rodgers, White, Howard, Ebron, Coleman, Fuller.

    Through 6 rounds and only 3 QBs. That is why you can wait on QB in FFWC. 6 TEs a nice little run of 3 this round. Makes sense to lock in an elite TE, there’s not many left IMO. Through the roof potential on all the wideouts Coutee, Davis and Fuller. Why everybody hating on my boy Davis? He’s ready to fly!

    Round 7 – Watson, Howard, Sutton, Jones, Montgomery, Penny, Pettis, Baker, McKinnon, Foster, Cook, Murray.

    What a fun round. A couple of stud QBs taken at great value. Same goes for the tight ends. The fliers with huge upside with Sutton, Pettis Penny and Montgomery? Big fan of the value in this round. Even Latavius, who could easily fill an Ingram role to keep Kamara fresh and what if there’s an injury to AK? Murray becomes an instant starter.

    Rounds 8-10 – Out of 36 picks we saw 10 QBs, 11 RBs, 11 WRs, and 4 TEs. The value on waiting on a QB is immense in this format.

    Oh how the mighty have fallen. Look at Tyreek Hill 9.9.
