Well, you’re either a fantasy football junkie, an advice seeker, or back to shit on my draft. Either way, welcome back. Draft #2 was on August 24th and here’s my team.
Yet again, I had the 3rd overall pick.
1st pick: Antonio Brown. Yep, you read that right. My buddy (fellow Giants fan) wanted OBJ because he loves him and the guy who was going #2 wanted him so he snaked him. But I’ll GLADLY take AB at 3, he’s a goddamn beast.
2nd pick: Allen Robinson. He absolutely blew up last year and a lot was because Blake Bortles put up great garbage time numbers. I don’t care, he’s nasty and I’ll gladly have a slight decline in numbers because he’s still a top 5-10 WR.
3rd pick: Amari Cooper. Smell a theme? Yeah, I’ll double down on Cooper in another league. Remember, Oak WR face the 2nd most favorable match ups against shitty CBs. Yet again, I have a NASTY trio of WRs.
4th pick: Thomas Rawls. Had to get the best RB left on the board. Coming off an injury and the Hawks do run that ball quite often…
5th pick: Jeremy Langford. No real competition and he shakes off last season’s rust and runs with this opportunity. Passed on Matt Forte because he’s old and banged up…
6th pick: John Brown. In case you missed it, Carson Palmer throws a lot. And the end is coming very soon for Fitzgerald, despite last year’s Phoenix-like return to greatness. Michael Floyd is injured often so I’m going with the guy who can straight out haul ass.
7th pick: Frank Gore. Doubled down on Gore because I wasn’t going with Giovani Bernard and it was too early to go on a QB not named Rogers, Wilson, or Newton (all of which were taken by now. Although it didn’t stop one guy from taken my boy Eli in this round…)
8th pick: Kevin White. Rookie year, injured. He’s the number 2 WR on a team where the #1 gets injured regularly. And Jay Cutler likes to throw too…mostly to the other team but once in awhile, he’ll find his man by mistake.
9th pick: Derek Carr. Made a leap last year and yet again, 2nd easiest schedule vs CBs. Doesn’t hurt that I have his #1 target either so might as well double dip with the connection.
10th pick: Zack Ertz. I think this was the steal of the draft. Yes, this guy is always touted as a breakout candidate but no more Chip Kelly and maybe a new rookie QB in a few weeks. TE are usually the safety valve so what the fuck…
11th pick: Sammie Coates: Doubled down on him again because Ben will have at least 2 games where he throws for close to 500 yds and AB can’t get them all. Markus Wheaton is trash and this kid is gonna get those #2 targets.
12th pick: Tevin Coleman: If this guy doesn’t get injured last year, Devonta Freeman is a nobody. He’s healthy and they ran the shit out of Freeman last year. And believe it or not, a few dummies have started to take defenses and kickers in this round. Thanks for the donations!
13th pick: Jameis Winston: Backup QB and he faces the Bears D. Good enough for me.
14th pick: Brandon McManus: Second to last round so time for a kicker.
15th pick: Patriots D: Last pick and these guys get their fair share of DST TDs
