My big money keeper league has long running + everyone is pretty active, and you can draft college players as keepers in the 11th and have them burn a spot on your bench for the season. Keepers move up the next year. So TL;DR is Gurley, Leveon, Zeke, Fournette, & Barkley are all late round keepers and essentially are going to be kept through the prime of their careers (I’ll have Guice in the 10th but I wouldn’t put him on the same level as the others). So unless I get a top 4-5 pick I’m missing out on DJ , Gordon, or Kareem Hunt.
What would the best approach be for a league where the top RB options are off the board before the draft even starts? Zig when everyone else zags and load up on wideouts + shoot for trades or just stock up on the next level of guys like Jordan Howard, Shady, or McKinnon?
