Give me Zeke all day. McKinnon is overrated AF and there’s a more than realistic chance that he sh*ts the bed as he has done his entire career and goes into a significant split with Breida/Williams. Even though its the 16th round and some may view that as extreme value and I would agree, to me, getting Zeke in the 2nd round is also absurd value. I could make a more than legitimate argument for Zeke as 1.01 in any format. So the value between that and the 2nd round and McKinnon where I would personally draft him (4th/5th) and the 16th round is a risk I don’t really want to take. I also expect zeke to get more involved in the pass game this year purely out of necessity. Truly believe has has a good shot at out scoring both gurley and bell.
Having Zeke/Miller as my RB 1 / 2 is more than fine to me. When Watson is healthy, miller is an RB2 floor with Rb1 upside. And you’re WRs are solid. Not to mention you’re going to get Mark Ingram back after week 4 who is an RB1 upside as well. Once Ingram comes back, I bet McKinnon wouldn’t even make it onto your starting roster. Don’t buy into the hype, take the guys that have shown they can produce. Not the one that all the dreamers think will perform just cause of coaching. McKinnon is not a good RB, never has been, never bwill be.
In a 10 man league, it is all about getting positional advantages, not about depth. You want guys who dominate the starting slots and Zeke is definitely that. McKinnon has no shot of doing that. Although I love Gordon, he is nowhere close to Zeke and will never touch his rushing yards.
Honestly, assuming you have standard roster settings like 2RB/2WR/Flex or 2RB/3WR/Flex, McKinnon shouldn’t even make it onto your starting lineup if you play the positional matchups well with your WRs.
JJ is an everyweek starter. Hilton is probably an everyweek starter with a healthy lucky. And then you can flex with Fitz/Hogan(totally underrated stud, catching from the GOAT as the WR1 after Gronk), and Ingram.
Trust me, take zeke. 2nd round Zeke is incredible value.
