Firstly congrats on the double win, good work!
As for the shortage, i wouldn’t say that there is one but given how well RBs especially rookies scored last year and couple that with the fact it was a down year for WR scoring in general, TE’s were outside of the top 4/5 a crap shoot every week and the rate of top QB/WR injuries the price of RBs this year is sky high and the hype around a lot of the rookies from this year and guys like McKinnon is at fever pitch levels.
So you’re seeing top tier WRs get pushed way down the first and the second while people clamber for RBs. You can go with best available and use tiers etc but ultimately if you want two high end RB2s or a RB1 and a RB2 you need to take the known assets in the first 2 and a half rounds or roll the dice with some of the rookies or riskier options that’s just the going rate.
Strategy wise if i’m picking in the back half (7 onwards/i play 12 team) i’m frequently getting AB/OBJ/Hopkins fall there or occasionally Kamara or Barkley so in most cases i’m taking AB/OBJ and then i’ll go 2 or 3 RBs in a row and then go back to construction to make sure i can get at least two good ones and have a stud asset overall in AB or OBJ.
I hope that sort of makes sense/helps you out?
Also on your 3rd pick, i wouldn’t be looking any further than Gurley, Zeke, DJ, Bell whoever out of those guys falls to me because 2 of them will be there if you’re going at 3 and i love Kamara but no way am i leaving one of them on the board for him.
