Depends on where you take him. It is like the people who took AP last year and think they are geniuses. Everyone knew he was awesome, but nobody knew about where he was with the injury.

Took him in an auction league for $28 and got Sudfeld for a $1.

He would have to fall to me. Def a high risk high reward. I think he will go too early in my draft for my liking.

$28 for Gronk seems extremely high. Is this a standard league auction with $200?

Got him with the 1st pick of the 5th round in a 12 man league. Felt that was a decent value especially if he can start by week 3.

Took him in the 6th in the Regulars league. Even if he missed 4-6 weeks, I think he is still worth that because of the value he brings when healthy.

re: Drafting Gronk....


I'd rather Sudfeld in the 12th than Gronk in the 5th

Won't even touch him. He's gonna break that arm again.

Yeah it's a 12 team auction league. I think he was valued at $28. Damn auto drafters pushed up the cost.

If he is there in the 7th, 8 man league, I'll pull the trigger without hesitation


draft jared cook in later rounds as a fill in until mid september. Plus, I think jared cook is going to have an awesome season.

Gronk has been going for around $15 in the mock auctions I've done (10 team).

$28 is over 10% of your budget on a guy you know won't play every game. Big upside but that's too much.

That's MJD this year.

I read a line from Matthew Berry saying his belief is that MJD is fully healthy and that anyone who picks him after pick 12 is getting the steal of this years draft.

I have considered taking MJD 13th, but I want to get him with the 19th pick...it's a gamble, but i think someone picking brees, rodgers, graham, ridley, and maybe gronk (super fans in my league) pushes him to where I get

spiller
dez
MJD

with my first 3 picks

I'll get a stud WR with my next pick and colston/amendola with the pick after that

then it's lacy time

now if dez and aj green (a certainty) are gone by the 13th pick...I'm going with brees (certainly gone) or MJD and then going cobb, vj/cruz/bowe, colston/amendola

spiller
mjd
vj
cobb
colston

cobb will be crazy good this year

re: Drafting Gronk....


But I saved money because my keeper was Calvin Johnson. I was only deducted $20 for keeping him. League rule was $20 across the board for any one keeper. So I think I came out good.
