Fantasy Football Draft #2 recap.

107271

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
