Where do you go with the #4 overall pick in Fantasy Football?


I'm pondering a lot of different things. PPR league, of course.

I don't see McCoy or Charles falling past 1 and 2

Gotta figure Charles, McCoy and AP are going 1-3. You have quite a few options that all make sense. A top tier RB in Forte, the top WR, the top QB, or the top TE. All 4 of those options are doable

I am a big fan of going RB in round 1 no matter what. I'll probably hold off on picking a QB until the 3rd or 4th round.

TE is an intriguing possibility. Assuming Graham stays healthy, I could draft him over Calvin Johnson. Our league allows TE's to be in the flex spot, so I can draft another TE in round 5 or so, and essentially treat Graham like a WR

Assuming McCoy, Charles, and AP are all gone; I'd have to with CJ I think. Just not as high on any other back at that spot if those top 3 are gone. Outside of CJ only other person I would contemplate would be Jimmy I think. You take CJ at 4 and you should still be able to get somebody like Giovani Bernard on the turn, and he makes a solid #1 this year IMO.

I don't like them spending a high pick on Hill

Gio is their guy. They had to get another back in there to complement him though. You can always draft Hill somewhere around rounds 11-12 as Gio's handcuff as well....Won't really know what they're planning to do until training camp, so that will be one thing I'll keep an eye on heading into my draft. Because I do really like Gio.

Mccoy stock is down a little with sproles in the passing game now. Plus i cant see him having anothre 300 carry season


Peterson is a safe early pick. Jamaal Charles as well. Both will be gone.

Id target Calvin Johnson or Matt Forte, maybe Eddie Lacy

Yea i think i go CJ or Forte.

No Qb is worth that much over another QB to be selected so high. An elite RB or the WR is the pick.

Love Graham but i don't take him that high. Not as high on Lacy as the rest of the world is but could definitely see the argument for him with 4/5 pick.

Eddie Lacy
Can you sell me on this guy? Ranked 5th overall among RB's and I just can't see how. I would personally draft M. Lynch way before I thought about Lacy. Why do people seem to like Lacy so much heading into this year?

quote:

Forte
Who is his backup now that Michael Bush is gone? I'm shaky on Forte as well, mainly because of age. But M. Bush was a big reason I tended to stay away from Forte the past couple seasons as well.

Graham + Gronk = Championship

no other TE can produce what these two will
in a 12 man 1st/3rd, in a 10 man 1st/4th
quote:

1 1.09 Jimmy Graham TE NO
2 3.04 Julius Thomas TE DEN
3 3.08 Rob Gronkowski TE NE



Julius is not a focal point of the offense like JG and RG are...he will never put up their numbers

the difference between the next 7 is at best 2 points/week (historically speaking, end of season TE totals)...but all 70-100 points/season under what JG or RG produce...Tight-end mediocrity is DEEP
quote:


4 5.08 Vernon Davis TE SF - same old acceptable mediocrity
5 5.10 Jordan Cameron TE CLE - will be relied upon, but system change and qb change
6 6.12 Jason Witten TE DAL - consistent medium
7 7.04 Jordan Reed TE WAS - will be used, but not focused on
8 7.12 Greg Olsen TE CAR - will produce just based on opportunity
9 8.09 Dennis Pitta TE BAL - healthy with Kubiak(owen daniels), Balt will use him
10 9.04 Kyle Rudolph TE MIN - Norv turner uses the TE (JCameron)



then you have the next group, that could easily all be in the top 3-10

quote:

11 10.04 Zach Ertz TE PHI - not seeing it, but they say they will use 2 TE sets, put up 36-469-4td as a rook
12 11.03 Eric Ebron TE DET - could be, but they paid Pet so can't see them benching him, but he could break out
13 11.09 Ladarius Green TE SD - huge upside if they give him the TE1 position
14 12.08 Martellus Bennett TE CHI - meh, no like, but the middle should be wide open
15 13.02 Charles Clay TE MIA - I like him, proved he can be the guy..great steal late
16 13.10 Antonio Gates TE SD - happy trails
17 13.11 Heath Miller TE PIT - was 4th best TE in 2012, injured pretty much all 2013, he's cheap

Why?
i would still go with this plan for the most part basically a best player available skewed toward RB plan minus the few rb that I have question marks about.
i would think a 1st rd should look like 8 rbs, 1 qb, 1 wr, 1 te, and one other.

So non RB in 1st round to me would be Payton, Graham, CJ,
then the other as Brees/Rodgers or which ever is your favorite in the tier 1b of the WR.
