Christ, my coworkers and I are trying to set up a league and we literally disagree with everything. ESPN vs Yahoo, $100 or $50 buy in, 12 or 14 players, etc.

who /taking Antonio Brown first overall/ here?

Yahoo - don't be *****
$100 - don't be *****
12 - don't water it down
PPR? If so, yes. If not, I have no idea, as I don't think I play in any leagues that do a straight draft like that...

.5 is a little too high for me. Highest I'd go is .333 (inb4 mikey doesn't comprehend more than 1 significant figure)

Our keeper pick is due Monday (anyone drafted 4rd round or later) I have some mediocre question marks to pick from that could possibly have some impact.

Jarvis Landry
Thomas Rawls (Beastmode offic. retired right? I should prob learn this stuff before we draft)
Doug Baldwin
Matt Jones (he's set to be the featured back in Wash despite his nonsense in his rookie year)

Basically just need to figure out what position would be better to fill so I can not worry about it and use that pick on something else.

Rawls is the one id be leaning to, though im not even convinced he'll be good this year coming off that injury.

I'd take Rawls all day. He looked like a franchise back last year

He did. And then he broke his ankle.

He did. And I so big on him when I picked him up. But the Seahawks have a ton of RBs looks like they're going to give a shot too even tho he's the perceived opening day starter. I'll most likely go him and that frees me up to take a WR 1st round which I've told myself to do for years and don't.

The Seahawks drafted, in my opinion, the 5th and 8th best rookie RBs out there. With a known commodity in Rawls and Michael, I think banking too high on either of them is a mistake...though, they aren't without talent...it's a tough call...your best bet is probably just to avoid the Seattle backfield and move your eggs to a more certain basket...

It sounds like for the first time seattle actually likes him. They'll be the last, and only relevant, group to jump on the bandwagon.

He's really, really good...I can't figure out why he doesn't play...and I know he's not going to be a starter again this year and then he'll wash out...and it will remain one of the bigger mysteries for me in recent times...I just don't get why he's not good...

He got his first shot whith seattle last year after they gave up on him and another team did too...and his work on the field was pretty undeniable when he did get that shot. Its confounding.

mikey's boner is pretty significant for Michael


if the Seahawks take away carried from Rawls to try to give Michael a chance, they're making a mistake. Michael might have the tools, but Rawls lead the league in yards/attempt for qualified RBs...he's amazing

He was so good, that of the 20 total RBs drafted in the 2016 draft, Seattle drafted 3 of them. Including two of, in my opinion, the top 8 available...

I'm not saying you're wrong, I'm just saying that you can prepare to be as surprised as me that your boy doesn't get it done either. My advice coming into this season for everyone that asks is: stay away from the Seattle backfield...

I may live to eat those words, but fantasy football is a form of betting and I'm betting against any individual in that backfield...

Yeah I said pretty much the same earlier in the thread. Rawls is probably the better NFL product at this time, but is coming off injury. Seattle has handled the rb position in a bizarre way even going back a couple years into Lynch's dominance.

Doing my draft early (13th) has been surprisingly nice. I don't have to follow injury reports or any preseason football at all for that matter.

you're the "**** the stats, give me the eye test" guy, right?


Rawls passes my eye test and more. He was tremendous back last year. reminded me of a slightly less speedy but more physically gifted Ray Rice (minus the...you know...)


I loved him last year, I'm probably going to reach for him in this year's drafts
