Had a draft in a office pool - 14 team league (half ppr, half point for first down).
As expected, Defenses went early and often (a big run in the 8th) and I continued picking up what I considered good upside values like Justin Jackson and other depth pieces for RB’s and WR’s.
Unfortunately, I waited a bit too long perhaps and ended up not taking a defense (or a kicker) to wait until the season starts. As sometimes happens in these leagues, many managers took multiple defenses (one person took 3!?!?!) and now the waiver wire pickings are pretty slim. Long term, I think I can string together some streaming options as people drop them, but this could be problematic, especially for week 1.
The best defenses on waivers are the Titans, Panthers, Falcons, Grene Bay, NYJ, Cardinals and Lions. None of these seem like great streaming options.
Any advice for how to handle this situation? I would trade a RB for a defense, but many managers that took them in the 8-10th round want a really good player for a relatively un-valuable defense?
