    Pick #7 turned out to be a much tougher spot in the first round than I imagined. I was dead set on Barkley, but as always happens he got drafted just before. Now I had to re-evaluate everything and eventually arrived at the following conclusion: My brain thinks Hopkins, but my gut tells me to go with a highly risky pick: 1.07 – Alvin Kamara – RB – Saints : Pros: -Those juke moves – This man makes people make miss tackles like nobody else, in fact he led the league in missed tackles forced per touch last year. -Yards after contact per attempt – Again Kamara led the league in this last year despite his size - see him shredding the Panthers below: -His receiving work is outstanding, his 81/826/5 receiving stat line from last year made him effectively a top-25 WR. So, you are drafting someone with massive RB1 potential with a WR2 floor at pick 7. Very few players fit that description. I see him getting 100+ targets in the receiving game once again. -Ingram suspension – Kamara will use the first 4 games to fully assert himself as the feature guy in the NO backfield & this may make up for any shared duties later in the season. -The Saints O-Line is a lot better than many people think. When it comes to passing it was ranked #1 by PFF for last season – and I am primarily drafting Kamara because of his incredible receiving potential. According to NFL.com Saints RBs gained about 0.87 yards per carry before defenders closed within 1 yard of them in 2017 – leading the league. Ryan Ramczyk had an incredible rookie season at RT, the Saints used two picks this year in the draft to further deepen their O-Line roster and LT Terron Armstead will be back from injury. Cons: -Low number of carries – last year his highest amount of carries in a single game was only 12, however I expect this to increase following his rookie year -Sharing duties following Ingram’s suspension: I am worried about this, but in the last few games of the year he outsnapped and outcarried Ingram. Hopefully that is a sign of what is to come this year. -Efficiency typically regresses, but his increased volume should take care of decreased Yard per catch or carry. @MRodgers97 Is on the clock. @SamKimish is on Deck.

    Damn you guys are going crazy while I'm trying to work! Love it. About me: Cowboys fan living in Redskins country (born in Texas so it's okay). I've been doing these FTA leagues since they started 4 years ago (I think) and been commishing them for 3. I play a lot of fantasy football and dynasty as well, but always have done poorly in these leagues. This is the year I turn it around though!

    Hi, my name is Stephen and I live in the DFW area and go to college at the University of Texas at Austin. This is my 2nd year doing a fta league. My favorite team is obviously the Cowboys, favorite player was Tony Romo but now is probably Zeke,and I have read the rules and I'm in

    3.03 Doug Baldwin - WR - Seattle Seahawks Jesus, I hate the seahawks. I really do. My first year watching NFL ended in the Bowman sacrificing his knee against the seahawks to recover a fumble, which he did, but then seattle were given the ball. and then *that* fade to Crabtree happened. But things change. The Legion of Boom is dead. Sherman is a 49er. It feels dirty, but it's true. The Seahawks could really suck this year, which honestly excites me almost as much as the prospect of Shanahan+Garoppolo for the 49ers. This means, hopefully, lots of catching up in games, as well as the Seahawks STILL not sorting out their O-line, leading to Wilson slinging it all day to his favourite guy - Baldwin. Jimmy Graham is gone, Paul Richardson is gone, and those targets have to go somewhere. I am hoping for a floor of 2017 - 75-991-8, and a ceiling of 2015 - 78-1069-14. Actually fairly similar seasons, but with the touchdown count ideally coming up this year with the absence of Graham. I can remember Baldwin first exploding in 2015 with those touchdowns - 11 in the 5 games weeks 12-16. I thought this was an anomaly, and have avoided in fantasy ever since, convinced he wouldn't produce. Sadly, the evidence is there that it's no anomaly, he is just a legitimately good receiver, unfortunately demonstrated here against the niners. With 2 good seasons since then, and possibly his best one yet to come, we could see garbage time points leading Baldwin to 16 touchdowns, equal to the amount of losses the seahawks will have this season. @Xarnis you're up, @Kiwiaragorn on deck.

    League #7 - SuperChargers (2018)

    Good Evening y’all my name is Dylan and I am also from DFW. I’ve been following the Bills closely since HS (Fitztragic era) although I grew up a Pats fan. This is about my 8th-9th year playing FF and my third year in a FTA slow-draft league. I have a poor track record so far in these leagues (especiallY compared to my Yahoo leagues) so im looking to correct that. I have read the rules (new and old) and I am more than ready to play

    I think the left and right Achilles tendons 100% split steps. I'm an anatomy and physiology fan and ik this, Also I personally even feel the uninjured Achilles tendon is better than the injured Achilles tendon.

    2.14 Travis Kelce 'Kelce hasn’t missed a game due to injury in four straight years. His targets per game (5.4 > 6.4 > 7.3 > 8.1) have risen each season, and he's finished Nos. 2, 5, 1, and 3 among tight ends in PFF’s Predictive Yards Per Route Run metric. Kelce was a top-two fantasy tight end in 2016 and 2017, ranking second (85) and first (83) at his position in catches. Last year, Kelce ran a career-high 49.3% of his routes in the slot, a number that seems likely to climb with slot WR Albert Wilson’s departure.' 3.1 JuJu Smith Schuster as a rookie he almost put up 1k in yards. not an ideal wr1 but without Bryant in Pittsburgh JuJu should sit an uptick in targets. Its also nice to have the best WR in the league opposite of you to free up the field a bit. Also its really fun to say JuJu @ilovelamp is back otc

    Cooper's production actually projects more of a 5th or 4th round pick but since it’s a BIG name people will take him. Not only does Cooper waver a lot in stat production. He’s injury prone, and tends to have a ceiling of only 1k yards and 8 tds at best.

    So the pressure is on me and the one and only question is: David Johnson or Leveon Bell? After painful hours of thinking and reading about that dilemma, i decided to let this question be answered by the following teams. I go here with a boom: I pick 1.02 - Ezekiel Elliott - RB - Dallas Cowboys He carried my fantasy team last year and i even expect more from him this season. Not only that he‘s going to play 6 more games this season, with the departure of Dez Bryant and the Retirement of Jason Witten, Zeke will take a bigger role in the passing game. He have to be the man who carries this cowboys offense. And i think he will. Running behind a top 5 OLine and a bigger role in the passing game will lead (hopefully) to 1800 to 2000 scrimmage yards. So Zeke, let‘s do it again @Phil you‘re on the clock @Xarnis you‘re on the deck

    1.10 Leonard Fournette Gonna go with Fournette here. Him and Hunt were similar in PPG last season and are the only 2 I considered to be RB1s of the guys remaining. There are others who have plenty of upside and could finish this way, but not many with the physical tools and game script advantages that Fournette looks to have in his favor. The only knock on him is availability and even with the nagging injury he still played 13 games. That was before the Jags upgraded their run game by adding Norwell. I can't find the stat right now, but it was something like both Stewart and CMC ran for almost a full YPC better behind him last season in Carolina. I believe he graded out better in pass pro than anyone in football last season, but his running game chops have me excited about getting the guy running behind him here. The Jags line was already pretty good on the left side with Linder and Robinson at LT/C and they also may have upgraded the right side as well with Richardson being drafted out of NCState. He had some off field baggage drop him from the late 2nd round to the 4th, but the talent is there to maybe step in at RT or RG if the Jags get a little lucky. If the Jags defense still maintains game control like they did last season and Bortles plays more like he did in the back end of the season than the front, I think I could have just picked the RB1 at pick 10. It's a little bit of a risk taking a guy with injury concerns in the first, but If he plays 13-14 games again this season I think his value is still higher than the RBs/WRs on the board. @mtrain You're up. @Risen Maul you follow.

    I was wrong I hate picking at 6. 1.6 Alvin Kamara Pros -over 1,500 yards from scrimmage last year despite not really getting used until week 4 - Ingram is out the first 4 games. So unlike last year where he started slow, he gets to start out the year getting possibly 14-15 carries a game. Whereas his best games last year he only had 12 carries (3 times). The New Orleans Advocate expects Alvin Kamara to handle 14-15 carries per game during Mark Ingram's four-week suspension. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported after Ingram's ban was announced that the Saints planned to feature Kamara more this season, anyway. Kamara caught 81 passes as a rookie but averaged only 7.5 carries per game, a number that has lots of room for sophomore growth. Kamara is squarely in the conversation as a top-five overall re-draft pick. Ingram has lost quite a bit of fantasy luster. May 21 - 4:57 PM Source: New Orleans Advocate -O-line was a lot better last year than I thought. Pro Football Focus had them ranked 9th last year. With little turnover I only expect them to get better - In a 0.5 PPR league, this only increases his value. He was just behind Bell, by 4 catches, as the second most receptions by a running back. Even with David Johnson back I expect him to fight for the top spot for receptions by a running back and will the second-best receiver for the Saints. -Brees is getting old, probably can't see or throw as far, so a pass catching RB that he can just toss the ball to should pay off? -Big play ability. It's hard to deny his ability in open spaces. That talent is what made him do so well last year and makes it hard to bet against him this year Cons - He breaks my round 1 rule. For years I only drafted what I call studs in the first round. I have certain criteria for that and he breaks one. I always draft a safe player that has the talent, situation, and resume to be a first rounder. He has the talent and his resume is ok but I hate his situation. I hate drafting a running back that has to share the load with a guy who could take away goal-line carries. His talent is the only reason I am breaking this rule. But damn does it not feel this could turn into a situation like the Panthers J Stewart and D Williams of years past especially if the Saint struggle. I will be avoiding him, unless he drops quite a bit, in my other drafts. - Ingram is only out the first 4 games - Still hard for me to trust a Saints running back.

    I’m in! I’m Ben from Minnesota and am a long suffering Vikings fan. This is my 4th year doing an FTA league. In years past I’ve used the FTA leagues to try out various drafting strategies. Last year apparently I tried the “all bust & injured” strategy and it didn’t work out too well. I have read the rules and new payout structure and am ready to begin drafting! Edit: Typo

    1.1 Alvin Kamara - New Orleans Saints Im all in on Kamara this year. With a full year under his belt and the suspension of Ingram, Alvin will flourish. "After returning from a Week 14 concussion, Kamara out-touched (78, 71) and out-snapped (36.4, 31.6) Ingram in the Saints’ final five games, playoffs included. Perhaps most tellingly, Kamara replaced Ingram as New Orleans’ scoring-position back, out-carrying Ingram seven to one inside the ten-yard line during that five-game span. Just after Ingram’s suspension was announced, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported the Saints planned to install Kamara as their feature back all along. Kamara was a top-five RB1 as a rookie despite averaging a measly 7.5 carries per game, and a 100-catch season can’t be ruled out after Kamara’s 100-target, 81-catch debut. Kamara won’t keep averaging 6.1 yards per carry, but he is a dynamic playmaker in a high-scoring offense slated for a significant increase in touches behind an offensive line that returns all five starters after ranking No. 2 in Adjusted Line Yards and No. 4 in yards created before contact." @ilovelamp is OTC
