144. Saints DST—EAGLE

TEAM EAGLE—QB: Cam Newton; RB: Todd Gurley, Jordan Howard; WR: Doug Baldwin, Demaryius Thomas; TE: Jordan Reed; FLEX: Lamar Miller; DST: Saints; K: Justin Tucker; BENCH: C.J. Anderson, Pierre Garçon, Kenny Stills

Wait on a QB. I advocate for this every season, and every season I’m tempted to break my own rule once the QB run starts (see: Round 5). I held strong here and still ended up with Cam Newton, the No. 2 fantasy QB last season, in the eighth round. I was lucky here—I still have no idea why Patrick Mahomes went before Newton—but the fact remains: the gap between the first, second and third tiers at quarterback are slim.

TEAM GOLDICH—QB: Aaron Rodgers; RB: Le’Veon Bell, Mark Ingram; WR: Tyreek Hill, JuJu Smith-Schuster; TE: Tyler Eifert; FLEX: Marshawn Lynch; DST: Jaguars; K: Steven Gostkowski; BENCH: Chris Hogan, D’Onta Foreman, Ben Roethlisberger

After all of the truly elite wide receivers were taken before my second-round pick, I decided it was worth making Rodgers the first QB off the board early. And I’m still pretty happy with the receivers I drafted in the third and fourth rounds. If Foreman is healthy, he can be a great second-year breakout candidate. I reached on a defense and kicker a round early, drafting both before a tight end—I’d rather wait on the position because I may end up finding an upgrade on the waiver wire anyway.

TEAM MANTZOURANIS—QB: Philip Rivers; RB: David Johnson, Joe Mixon; WR: Golden Tate, Devin Funchess; TE: Zach Ertz; FLEX: Devonta Freeman; DST: Rams; K: Harrison Butker; BENCH: Rex Burkhead, Duke Johnson, Robby Anderson

Just like in the real draft, the best-player-available approach rarely leads you astray in fantasy. That’s how I wound up with a RB corps I LOVE after three rounds. My WRs are a little thin, but I have one reliable standby (Tate) and a couple of high-upside options (Funchess, Anderson) I like. I also have the depth at RB to swing a trade to add another wideout.

TEAM SINGLE—QB: Deshaun Watson; RB: LeSean McCoy, Derrick Henry; WR: Julio Jones, T.Y. Hilton; TE: Kyle Rudolph; FLEX: Marlon Mack; DST: Texans; K: Matt Bryant; FLEX: Kerryon Johnson, Michael Crabtree, Jared Goff

I don’t care what anyone else in this draft thinks: Julio Jones—not Antonio Brown—is my first-choice WR1. As both superstars approach 30, the risk grows that they’ll start to hit the decline phase of their careers, and with the top three running backs off the board in the first three picks, I’m betting on Jones’s size and strength to help keep him as unstoppable as ever. Steve Sarkisian and the rest of the Falcons staff has an entire offseason to figure out how to get the ball to Jones in the red zone; surely they’ll be more creative in year two, right? Right?

KALYN KAHLER—QB: Tom Brady; RB: Jay Ajayi, Tevin Coleman; WR: Antonio Brown, Adam Thielen; TE: Rob Gronkowski; FLEX: Cooper Kupp; DST: Vikings; K: Greg Zuerlein; BENCH: Delanie Walker, Jamaal Williams, Cameron Meredith

Brady might be 41 years old at the start of this season, but I still trust in him as my quarterback and Gronkowski as one of his favorite weapons. I drafted Brown knowing he’ll do Antonio Brown things and Ajayi knowing the Eagles offense will be potent with either Nick Foles or Carson Wentz at the helm. With Cousins as his quarterback, Thielen will be just as good of a weapon as he was last year, if not better. The Vikings defense—the league’s No. 1 defense in 2017—will be even better next season with the additions of veteran defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson and first round cornerback Mike Hughes.

CONOR ORR—QB: Carson Wentz; RB: Saquon Barkley, Christian McCaffrey; WR: Brandin Cooks, Nelson Agholor; TE: Evan Engram; FLEX: Jerick McKinnon; DST: Eagles; K: Wil Lutz; BENCH: Emmanuel Sanders, Calvin Ridley, Ty Montgomery

This draft was liberating in that, for the first time, I allowed myself to stray from the best available column and truly think about players I enjoy watching who, coincidentally, will probably score a lot of touchdowns this season. The Barkley pick, the McKinnon pick and the Engram pick were my personal favorites, with Ridley as a late-round sleeper with high upside.

MICHAEL BELLER—QB: Russell Wilson; RB: Ezekiel Elliott, Alex Collins; WR: Davante Adams, Mike Evans; TE: Jack Doyle; FLEX: Marvin Jones; DST: Chargers; K: Matt Prater; BENCH: Royce Freeman, Jarvis Landry, Aaron Jones

Where do I sign up to get this team in all my leagues? I’ve got Elliott and Adams as the third and 15th players on my board, respectively, so to get them seventh and 18th was a real treat. Understand, however, that this could be the only draft all summer where Elliott goes as low as seven. After that, great picks kept falling to me. Evans should bounce back, no matter how long Jameis Winston is out. Collins is boring, but effective. Marvin Jones is coming off an 1,100-yard, nine-touchdown season. Freeman and Aaron Jones both have a ton of upside. Wilson at pick No. 79? Landry at No. 90? Yes, please. To top it all off, I got the Chargers defense, which I believe will be the No. 1 fantasy defense this year, thanks largely to Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram.

ALEX HAMPL—QB: Matt Ryan; RB: Kareem Hunt, Dion Lewis; WR: A.J. Green, Larry Fitzgerald; TE: Travis Kelce; FLEX: Corey Davis; DST: Broncos; K: Chris Boswell; BENCH: Will Fuller, Julian Edelman, Rishard Matthews

So… the running backs. I misjudged the market a bit here, so obviously if this were a real team, I’d be looking to deal a receiver or two to add a third back. In hindsight, I should have gone for Tevin Coleman or Marshawn Lynch in the sixth round over Davis. But my big-picture strategy remains solid: Grab one of the nine or so stud RBs in the first, fill out the roster with useful pass-catchers, and most importantly, wait on a QB. I got Ryan, who might helm the league’s best passing attack this year, in the third-to-last round.

BETTE MARSTON—QB: Matthew Stafford; RB: Leonard Fournette, Dalvin Cook; WR: Allen Robinson, Alshon Jeffery; TE: Greg Olsen; FLEX: Ronald Jones; DST: Patriots; K: Jake Elliott; BENCH: Marquise Goodwin, Kelvin Benjamin, David Njoku

The first three picks were a bit risky by my standards, drafting two young RBs—one of whom (Cook) is coming off of a torn ACL—and a WR who’s playing for the first time in a new location. Luckily I rounded out my starting receivers with Greg Olsen who’s fantasy floor hasn’t changed in at least five years. I took a flyer on Bucs rookie RB Ronald Jones, who could emerge as the solution to Tampa Bay’s perennial running back problem. I likely could have waited another round to draft a QB, with Kirk Cousins and Matt Ryan not going until several picks after I took Stafford—the lesson here, as always … wait to draft a quarterback.

EVAN LAZAR—QB: Kirk Cousins; RB: Kenyan Drake, Sony Michel; WR: Odell Beckham Jr., Michael Thomas; TE: George Kittle; FLEX: Stefon Diggs; DST: Ravens; K: Dan Bailey; BENCH: Sammy Watkins, Tarik Cohen, Nick Chubb

I didn't go into the draft with a zero-running-back strategy, but I was happy to sit back and take three of the game’s best wide receivers with my first three selections. From there, I had to rethink my running back strategy with most of the top picks off the board. I went with the safest remaining running back in Drake and then some high-upside options for my RB2 spot (Michel, Cohen, and Chubb). With the tenth pick in the first round, I knew I’d have to wait and see who fell to me, and I was more than happy to land a one-two punch of Beckham and Thomas.

GABRIEL BAUMGAERTNER—QB: Drew Brees; RB: Alvin Kamara, Derrius Guice; WR: Keenan Allen, Josh Gordon; TE: Trey Burton; FLEX: Robert Woods; DST: Seahawks; K: Adam Vinatieri; BENCH: Jamison Crowder, DeSean Jackson, Mitchell Trubisky

I’ve got speed to burn, baby. I’m taking significant gambles in rounds three and four by taking the hardly dependable Gordon and Fortnite Fiend Guice, but I’ve got one of fantasy’s most versatile players in Kamara and the (still) unheralded Allen, who is maybe the most precise and complete receiver in football not named Antonio Brown. Brees may be due for a decline, but if that happens, I’ve got Trubisky, who was excellent in his brief stint starting for the Bears last year and is due for a second-year leap. The biggest problem with my team is I drafted one too many players from the same team … I’ll have some waiver wire work to do on weeks when the Saints and Washington are on bye weeks.

GARY GRAMLING—QB: Patrick Mahomes; RB: Melvin Gordon, Rashaad Penny; WR: DeAndre Hopkins, Amari Cooper; TE: Jimmy Graham; FLEX: DeVante Parker; DST: Panthers; K: Ka’imi Fairbairn; BENCH: Andrew Luck, Carlos Hyde, Isaiah Crowell

Wow, drafting 12th really is a terrible spot! I had my fingers crossed for Fournette (standard league scoring and all), but getting two high-floor vets allowed me to roll the dice in Rounds 3 and 4. Penny is the No. 2 rookie after Barkley. I’m not a big Cooper guy but I think if he's going to play primarily out of the slot he's back to 1,200-plus yards with the potential for 8-10 TDs. Ditto for Parker. (This is the definite possible breakout year for DeVante Parker. Maybe.) I'm also taking Luck and Mahomes in every league because they each provide potential top-three upside at the position and you've truly gone mad if you can't see that.
