Seventh Pick PPR draft
Ten team full PPR. Have the seventh pick. If Hopkins is there, I'll probably just grab him. My question is that if Bell and David Johnson were options, which would be the better pick. What about Gurley? A month ago he was going in the third of most drafts, now he's being mocked back in the first round.

Wouldn't be considering Bell at that pick. Hopkins is probably the consensus highest ranked player available out of those options. But it depends on if you think it's more important to lock up a top 10 RB. Both DJ and Gurley COULD finish as a top 3 RB in PPR. But DHOP probably the safest pick.

As for Gurley, your guess is as good as everyone else's. I've seen some analysts predict him to produce akin to Kamara, i.e., much lower workload than typical workhorse backs, but insanely efficient with the touches he does get. Even if Gurley doesn't get the 25+ touches he used to get, he could still be an elite RB with 15-20 touches in that Rams offense.

I'd be fine with DJ right there, because you can still get a top 10 receiver coming back at 13.

Leveon Bell is going to bust HARD

Why don’t you like Bell?

He’s been the #1 overall for several years and he will have fresh legs.

I think the Jets will lean on him with plenty of touches.

re: Seventh Pick PPR draft
In that range you're looking at Hopkins, Bell, Gordon (if he signs possibly) and Adams. You have to think who's going to be there in the second at RB when you make the turn if you don't go RB here. Going WR this early leaves you with the possible likes of Damien Williams or Dalvin Cook as your RB1. Going RB here gives you a possible WR1 shot of the likes of Beckham, Smith-Schuster, Antonio Brown maybe TE Kelsey.

Most mocks I've seen probably would lean towards Johnson if he's there, but a lot of people got burned by him last year. Dunno, it's a toss up. I hope people pass on Le'Veon Bell all day. He'll get the volume and I tend to think I'd go Bell.

Good luck!
