Live Draft Tonight....
I have my live draft tonight and it is a pure scoring league and a snake draft.. No PPR, just TD's and yards. With that said, I have the #1 overall pick and I have been tempted to take Calvin Johnson with the #1 overall selection and waiting/rolling the dice to grab a QB at #20. Here is my projection with how the first round might look.
#1 - Calvin Johnson, WR
#2 - Aaron Rodgers, QB
#3 - Tom Brady, QB
#4 - Drew Brees, QB
#5 - Cam Newton, QB (duel threat = double points for rushing TD's)
#6 - Matt Stafford, QB
#7 - LeShon McCoy, RB
#8 - Arian Foster, RB
#9 - Tony Romo, QB
#10 - Matt Schaub, QB (Snake draft would allow them to take Andre Johnson @ #11)
So, based off this projection I only need to worry about two teams in round 2 that would be considering a QB. They may decide to go after a WR (Fitzgerald, Wallace, Julio Jones, AJ Green) or they may want to take their QB right then. My hope is that Eli falls to #20, but if Matt Ryan or Philip Rivers is available, that would be acceptable.
What are the thoughts on my strategy?
