I have the 8th spot in a 10 team draft next Saturday. I am not sure if locking in Jordy will handicap me picking up good RB’s later. Open to your thoughts…
Freeman. It’s not that close to me. Jordy is great, but you can find plenty of WRs later, especially in PPR. Freeman is criminally underrated, and a real difference maker over the RBs available in the second round or later. He has over 3100 yards (and 73 and 54 receptions in 2015 and 2016 respectively) and 27 total touchdowns in the last 2 years. I’d take him as high as 5th, behind DJ, Bell, Brown and OBJ.
I’m taking him over every wide receiver available at the 8th pick. If you do go WR though with your first pick…just remember the guys no one else will at RB that have been PPR gold a season or two ago. Vereen…Sims…Kamara (rookie)… Those guys are going un drafted most of the time. Paul Perkins is a bum. Eli saint as good as he once was. Vereen is my PPR sleeper this year.
Great advice. Thanks
