Draft Strategy – PPR Settings

The first two rounds featured 14 RBs, 9 WRs and one QB.

RB/RB

RB/WR

WR/RB


WR/WR

I drafted Evans despite knowing that Jameis Winston was being suspended.

RB/QB

Round three was interesting, as Tyler T. added a third RB in Jordan Howard (27), but was kind enough to leave a comment as to why!

Started three RB’s because of best player available method. Knew I would have to make up for WR with quantity.

Six of his next 9 picks were WRs.

Kevin selected Rob Gronkowski (31), rather than his first RB, which was nine picks later than his PPR ADP or 22.

Joe added his 2nd RB in Kenyan Drake (34) after Richard, Alex and AJ all decided to pick up a 2nd WR before a 2nd RB.

Noah was the only roster with one RB/WR/TE (Travis Kelce 35) and Jonathan ended the round with Russell Wilson (36).

Brandin Cooks (37) and Golden Tate (46) wound up as WR1s in the fourth round for Jonathan and Tyler T.

Derrius Guice (42/RB19) was Kevin’s first running back drafted. His PPR ADP is 39/RB18.

Only two rosters featured three WRs after four rounds

  • Brown/Evans/McCoy/Fitzgerald – Keith
  • Kamar/Allen/Thielen/Cooper – Alex

Three teams were left with just a single WR on their roster after 48 picks.

Over the next two rounds, Tyler G. added two more in Jarvis Landry (50)/Cooper Kupp (71).

Tyler T. went Evan Engram (51)/Pierre Garcon (70).

Jonathan added two more RBs in rounds 5 &6, leaving him with a QB/4 RB/WR roster.

The Final RB2’s

It took until the fifth round for all 12 teams to have two RBs rostered.

After drafting McCoy in the third round, I drafted Jay Ajayi with pick 53.

Kevin went back-to-back rookie RBs, adding Ronald Jones II (55) a round after Guice.

Alex added the 5th rookie RB selected as his RB2, using the 56th pick on Royce Freeman. Freeman’s current PPR ADP is 83

33 of the first 72 picks were running backs.

Only half of the league had drafted at least three wide receivers after six rounds.

Five tight ends and four quarterbacks were drafted.
