Number 1 pick startup dynasty


#1

Who is it? ODB? Zeke? Evans? I’m leaning Zeke being a Cowboys fan but the value of receivers in dynasty is supposedly where it’s at. Thoughts?


#2

evans or beckham whoever you like better. both super young and super talented. You could argue Evans has a better situation going forward with the Bucs committed to a young jameis winston. Never know how long Eli is gonna last and then what happens to odell once his qb retires, i dont know the answer to that so with that said you still have what i believe to be 3 years for Eli. give or take

Consensus OBJ, but since this is your team long term, how do you like to play? Are you a win with guys you love? The Ballers are always big on don’t lose with guys you hate, and I tend to agree. So if you’re a cowboys fan, picking Beckham could be a tough pill given the division foe. If you want zeke, see if you can trade back a few slots, flip first rounders with pick 3 or 4 and try and pick up an additional pick in the top 6-8 rounds.

Unfortunately, there’s no trading picks 1st year. I had Odell on my redraft last year and it wasn’t bad. I know receivers have a longer shelf life, but I don’t think my team would be at a disadvantage drafting Zeke. I still need a strong rb and by the time I get another pick most of them will be gone.

10 or 12 team? I just finished a 10 team startup ppr, that I thought went RB heavy, and Gurley, Ajayi, Mixon were all available at 20/21. Not sure if that makes you feel better about OBJ. For me, OBJ is still the pick, and I love building around RBs, but he’s too good and too young. That’s just my opinion though. Good luck man.

I’d lean Evans. He’s a stud, has the better long term situation, and had a comically low YAC last year (due to constant double teams). Regsrding the YAC, I’m expecting a major improvement due to both general positive regression, and Jackson taking pressure off. Even if he doesn’t, he still finished as the WR1 or 2 (depending on scoring format) last year.
