    Looks like @DakToTheFuture gets their mystery Ram receiver.

    That's where I was at too. Plus, the PEDs. What's he like now that he's off the juice? Are you really going to roll the dice with him week 5? He and Payton get into it all the time and this is the last year on his contract. If the Saints figure it out before week 5 they might just go forward with Kamara, treat Ingram like Adrian Peterson and trade him away at the end of the season. He seems like he wants to go most of the time anyway. Too many questions for a guy that takes up a bench spot for half the season. Might be good trade value week six if you can find a team that is in must win mode.

    6.7 Jimmy Graham Damn you Green Bay! Why do you do this to me? I've been hemming and hawing about this for too long may as well give in. For the last 2 years GB picks up good looking TEs (Cook and Bennett) and yours truly thinks oh that looks promising. And inevitably, they have a mediocre season. Here we are now with Jimmy Graham. What I will say that Graham does have going for him is his huge red zone threat and the Packers tendency (3rd in the league) to pass in said red zone. I expect to feast and famine with Jimmy. I probably got suckered again by GB and came crawling back for more punishment but I'm weak. @garcicus sorry for making you wait

    5.08 Russell Wilson I'm looking ahead and I predict we are about to have a run on TEs and/or QBs. Wilson doesn't make it through that. I'll gamble on a TE but give me a QB I know is going to be a sure thing. Wilson can make it happen without an OL or folks to throw the ball to. He's been top 3, 3 out of the last 4 seasons. With sure things off the board at other positions, I'll take what I can get here. @ike3352 is OTC

    @Skip I don’t think you have anything to worry about with Cooks. He’s a solid pick. I’d be really surprised if he got under 1,000 yards and a half dozen TDs with LA. They’d be under-utilizing some quality talent if that were the case.

    4.07 Allen Robinson There's so much upside here. Have you seen this guy's 2015 numbers? They are insane. Highest red zone touchdown rate of any receiver in the NFL. The Bears have an all new receiving corps, so their QB will actually have someone to throw the ball too. And at the head of that corps is Robinson. There's some risk here. Robinson tore his ACL and hasn't been on the field for a year. Plus Trubisky in his sophomore year is definitely not an elite QB. However, those 2015 numbers and a new offense approach under Nagy is enough for me to roll the dice. @garcicus is back up!

    Jelly. Wanted Guice but 3rbs in a row is not my jam. Loved watching him play at LSU. Def gonna watch him tear it up as a Redskin.

    Remember when I said I was gonna buck some trends...yeah...I need some WR action before that well runs dry...so maybe next round #smartorcowardyoudecide 3.08 Demaryius Thomas Looking at the board right now no one gets me as excited as Demaryius Thomas. Diggs? Probably better with Cousins but will be splinting time with Thielen and can't make it through a season. Cooper? He and Carr are also always playing hurt and yeah Crabtree is gone but oh look Jordy Nelson is here and he brought Martavis Bryant. QB favorite or not, I'm not biting. Give me Captain Consistency! DT has been done dirty. Siemian? Trash. Brock Lobster? Dumpster fire. And despite those horrid QBs this guy is putting up 1,000+ yards (give or take 50 yards) every season. So, now with Keenum I expect Thomas to have a great season. @ike3352 get over here!

    I do the same thing. I'm always curious to see what other folks are doing in my same spot. Everyone around pick 7,8,9 seems to following the same script so far going for Saquon and Mckinnon. Gotta see if I can buck that trend.

    @garcicus just pinging you again to let you know your timer is unpaused. Still got plenty of time though.

    2.08 Jerick Mckinnon Hand picked by Kyle Shanahan, the same guy who helped highlight how great Devonta Freeman is. The 49ers are going to use Mckinnon extensively if only because the guys behind him are middling at best (looking at you Matt Breida). Oh and they spent like a bajillion dollars on him and notably didn't sign or draft any competition for his job. He's shown flashes of talent with the Vikings and now, with an offense is being built around him, I think he's going to have a great year. I might have boarded the hype train a bit here but looking at the other RBs available Shady is looking pretty shady right now and I'm not sold on McCaffrey with Olsen back and the addition of Anderson. @garcicus it's your call

    Hey! I didn't introduce myself. I'm The Messo from New Orleans and this is my 3rd year playing in FTAFFL. I really enjoy the level of competition here and had a blast (and incredibly lucky) time in House of Pain last year. Despite @trank rigging the system, pulling strings to give yours truly a trash drafting position, I will persevere 😜. Without further ado... 1.08 Saquon Barkley Barkley is going to be as close to a sure thing as I feel like I'm going to get out of this draft. His talent is undeniable and he is going to get David Johnson levels of volume. Per ESPN: “The top prospect on our board, Barkley projects as an every-down back with the elite talent and intangibles to become a franchise-changing player. He's gifted enough to emerge as an All-Pro caliber player early in his career.” & “Barkley fills a pressing need for the Giants, who ranked 26th in rushing yards per game and 22nd in rushing yards per carry in 2017. Look for Pat Shurmur and Mike Shula to maximize Barkley's rare natural ability. He should take some pressure off Eli Manning and free up their talented pass-catchers by forcing defenses to respect the run. He'll make an immediate impact as a receiver and blocker, too.” I just hope the Giants have done enough with their O line and coaching staff. @ike3352 is up!

    Bold indeed, just like Kamara himself. Dude makes moves. Excited to see him play this year.
