New potential plan for my 1st and two seconds, input on if this is crazy:

4th - take Rodgers/Brady if there
12th - take MJD if still there
17th - take AP if still there

Yes, one is holding out, one is coming back from injury...but what if they both come back to form, even if its mid season? RB's are high risk, why not?

First draft of the season is two weeks from today. I have 6th pick in a 16-team .5 PPR league. Not too sure what direction I'm going in but we all voted on the stats we'd use and stuff, and I think 6pts per throwing TD won out (which I don't like). Looks like I'll have to go QB if one of the big three are still available at 6th.

Anyone have any thoughts? I'd rather be picking 6th than like 9th or 10th, but I'm still in an awkward spot.

I like it. I feel like this year, more than most, it's so much harder to predict who's team is going to be good because of the amount of question marks there are in the draft.

Thanks. I had Stafford in the 7th and Murray in the 14th as keepers so I had a pretty nice advantage from the start. The only pick I wasn't crazy about was Mathews, but I figured he was worth the risk at that point.

So I'm going to be playing Fantasy Football for the first time and I was just wondering how many players do you actually choose in the draft? Which positions are better options? And do you guys have any good recommendations/tips/websites?

A) It really depends on the league. The most common set up is for starters: 1 QB, 2 RB, 2 WR, 1 TE, 1 flex, 1 D/ST and 1 K. Then you normally have like 4 or 5 bench spots.

B) There isn't really a hard and fast rule regarding what position to take when. I would personally recommend waiting on WR this year because it is super deep.

C) Try to find out what draft position you have before the draft and do a mock draft or 2 before your draft at your draft spot to get a feeling for when what positions and players go where. Try a couple different strategies in the mocks and see which team you like the most.
